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...more

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.
