Dr. Segal is retiring in a few months and probably none too soon. Waited over an hour after my scheduled appointed then saw her for approximately 10 min. Barely spoke to me, did not show much concern about my concerns on several skin issues I pointed out to her. She reminded me my primary Dr. & insurance authorized 1 procedure & she took care of. No need to detail office visit but my impression is this Dr. is a 'Dermatologist Monitor, not an actual Dermatologist.' Happy Retirement, it's time.
LONG Wait both in front office and then the back room. Had appointment but total waiting time was nearly two hours. Doc assistant was not friendly at all, and Doc not much better. Very impersonal and did not answer valid questions. Procedure came out poorly. Better off going to ANY other Dermatologist. Would recommend the Green family dermatologists in Laguna Hills.

Dr. Segal is very thorough and a excellent clinician, she diagnosed Malignant Melanoma in the center of my back, performed a biopsy and hovered over me through the whole process of finding the best cancer surgeon in the area to perform the extensive surgery. Then followed up with me and the referred Oncologist for post surgical therapies. I see Dr. Segal often for follow ups to be sure there are no further incidences of Melanoma. She is more like a caring friend than just a Physician
