Patient Comments (1)
in Chicago, il |
I will admit, I have never been to a dermAtlogisy before and was nervous about several moles/ingrown hairs/the general condition of my skin. Dr Shanker gave me a speech about skin cancer. He barely actually looked at my skin, clearly nervous about it the whole time, (I felt like the fact that I had no qualms about actually being naked in front of my doctor was jarring to him) and brushed off the concerns I had. I feel like I have no more knowledge about skin health or my own body as I did before
