I've been meaning to post this review for some time now. I scheduled an appointment with Eleanor for dermatitis. She immediately began talking about Political matters, Trump, Covid and All of the issues in this Nation upon entering her office. This is Not acceptable or professional to waste my time speaking on topics other than the reason and purpose for my visit. She then prescribed something for my skin after one look and, it was the exact same cream she prescribed on my previous visit a few months prior. I should have remembered however, even more-so, she should have it on Record. I tried calling the office to rectify this problem with a different cream. She insisted it was the correct one. I NEVER received a call back from her thereafter!!!!! We DO NOT recommend her at All!

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.
