Westport, CT |
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.
