Patient Reviews (4)
She simply wasn't thorough. One of the items I complained about was bumps on my arm that itched. I told her I thought they may be warts. She said, "warts don't itch" and then without even looking at my arm, told me to put lotion on it and that was it. What was even more troubling was that I noticed her finger nails were filthy. Not what you want to see from a physician. I won't be going back.

She didn't connect with me and didn't try. She only gave me 4 minutes and rushed out. I waited 2 months to see her. I have been in pain and needed to understand what was going on with my skin. She was on her computer putting notes in after 30 seconds of getting in the room. She was more concerned about the paper work associated with my appointment than me. Instead of taking time to explain what my skin condition was. I got a google print out to read about it on my own. I left crying.

I've been going to Dr. Janss for years and have referred many people to her. She has always been able to treat me appropriately when other doctors couldn't. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good Dermatologist.
