He couldn't wait to get out of the room (under 5 mins). Told me what the skin issue "might" be. Asked me what I wanted to do w/o giving me enough info to make an informed decision. He did not make a suggestion, just said you could do A, B or C. I had no idea so chose "none".

I work in a hospital and I train staff (including physicians) on how to listen to the needs of their patients. I regretted hearing that Dr. Monks failed to do so for my family member. In spite of all the paperwork filled out before the visit, it was clear that he had not reviewed any of it. He had the patient's needs "all figured out" before even assessing the patient and asking what interventions had already been attempted. Everybody has a bad day. I get it. So, I want to cut him some slack. There's no shame in saying, "I'm sorry, I need some additional time to familiarize myself with your case and perhaps you can help me accomplish that." In the case of my family member, the only thing he left with was $50 dollars less in his pocket and little, to no direction moving forward. Very, very unfortunate. I'm hopeful other patients don't have a similar experience. Thanks for considering my feedback.

Dr. Monks was instrumental in getting my skin disease diagnosed and treated. I owe this excellent physician my life....literally. He continues to be actively involved in my treatment.

Not sure what some of the others who commented had for expectations. I've seen Dr. Monks for several years. He is a "no non-sense" guy. Gets to the point and always leans to the side of caution. His referrals to Dr. Myers were, in my opinion, made in my best interest. He always shakes my hand on arrival then thanks me for my business when my visit is over. That's what I'm paying for, medical attention not a "chit-chat" session.

Dr Monks spent hardly any time with me on my 2 visits to him. Like literally 10 min if that and just ordered 2 biopsies. The first time he said I was having an allergic reaction to my BP meds, but when it came back he then said it was eczema. Went to a new dermatologist for a 2nd opinion who asked several questions, actually examined me and spent time with me. He determined it was psoriasis that I've had all along. I do not recommend him at all.

My 11 year old daughter was referred to Dr. Monks for treatment of skin cancer. Dr. Monks' assistant was nasty and unhelpful. She refused to set an appointment claiming the fact that my daughter qualified for Sooner Care (though we were not using Sooner Care) legally prohibited scheduling. As a lawyer practicing in health care, I knew this was false. Don't risk putting private health care information in the hands of renegade, dishonest office help. Your info is only as private as they keep it.

He never even ask to look at my skin, but diagnosed me incorrectly. I just got back from another Dr who examined me from head to toe. I will never refer him to anyone. Very full of himself and spent a total of 5 min with me. His nurse stayed and answered questions for me.

I would not recommend Dr. Monks to my worst enemy. He has no desire to treat his patients as human beings, and clearly sees them as walking dollar signs. Without even looking at my skin, he made an emotionally jarring, and let me add, incorrect diagnosis. I left his office in tears, and will never go back.

Focuses on proving his preconceived, but later proven erroneous diagnoses. Quite impressed with himself. Acts like he is doing the patient a favor by seeing them. He'll make a diagnosis before he even fully enters the room, and doesn't do exams. He;s ripe for a malpractice suit. A waste of time & money. His office repeatedly bills, even after being paid in full by insurance & patient.
