I recently had my first appointment with Dr. Ford. The treatment I received from her entire staff was very welcoming. Dr. Ford explains the procedure before treating you and invites feedback. If you are in need of a really good dermatologist, please make an appointment to see Dr. Ford.

I've been to many dermatologists in my life, and Dr. Ford is the WORST ever. She didn't even examine my skin! Not even once... nowhere! And get ready to pay extra if you forget to tell the nurse something and then you ask this doctor. She even has signs about this "rule"... Please do not waste your time. I wonder how she could "diagnose" what I have without even taking a look at my skin.

Dr Eleanor Ford, is the BEST! I've been to quite a few doctors & nobody could figure out my skin issues. Dr.Ford cured me in few weeks. She is old-school at it's best.
