Frederick, MD |
I called right at 9AM on Thursday when they opened to cancel an appointment for the next day. Because they open at 8AM on Friday's (appt 8:15) they chose to charge me a cancellation fee instead of working with me. I get screwed because they change their hours daily and they can't be reached? I don't think so, it isn't even about the money, it is more about courtesy, and respect of repeat client.

I recently became a new patient of Dr. Ford. She is one of the most attentive Dr.'s I have ever seen. She is very gentle and personable which I find to be an amazing quality in a Dr. After all, patients are real people not just a number. I was so pleased with my visit and look forward to a long professional relationship with her practice. I would highly recommend Dr. Ford to anyone looking for a dermatologist.

Dr Ford was great and I would recommend her anytime.
Its the morning before my appointment. 23 hours to be exact. I have an emergency and need to cancel. Because I did not technically give 24 hours notice (23 hours) they are charging me $100. So tired of second rate Frederick doctors. Looks like its back to Montgomery County doctors for dermatology too.

Dr. Ford has been my dermatologist for many years. I continue to see her even when my current insurance plan does not cover my care. She has treated me for both medical and cosmetic concerns. I am especially impressed with how she keeps up with the latest information and state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. I have always found the medical services provided by her team highly professional and patient focused. I have recommended her to family and friends...and now you.
