What People Say About Dr. Gail Whitman, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My son had a small beauty mark removed and as a result was left with a very large and unsightly scar that is about 8-10 X the size of the beauty mark. The skin in that area is additionally very thin and years later, still sensitive not to mention he is now a teen ager that is embarrassed to remove his shirt beauty mark was on his torso). She always seems to be in a rush. Maybe had she spent more time my son would not be scarred like this.

I have been trying to find the right dermatologist for years. I finally found Gail. She is one of the best physicians I have ever been to in terms of quality of care AND she really listens to you and makes you feel at ease.

She completely misdiagnosed my skin condition - after 3 months of treatment (2 different medications) and spending more than $500 dollars, went to another doctor. Do you due diligence before going here. Terrible experience.
