Dr. Valencia is my first dermatologist and it was a very uncomfortable experience. She did not listen to why I was there and was fixated on a concern that one, I knew I didn't obviously have and two, never mentioned being concerned about. As far as treatment, I hadn't been concerned about prescriptions but more about why I'm having this issue and what I can do to fix it, even if it's just a different face cleansing procedure. She moved so quickly that I couldn't even express that and did not seem the least bit interested in treating me at all. I was in-and-out in under ten minutes and truly left feeling embarrassed for going to a doctor at all.

I have been seeing Dr. Valencia for years and she is wonderful. She always asks about my kids/job (and remembers what we talked about last time) and then addresses all my concerns quickly and efficiently. I am confident in her abilities and have been very happy with the treatment I've received. Highly recommend.

My experience was very different from other reviews. I took my young teenage daughter to see her and Dr Valencia was very cold, didn’t have any interest in listening to our concerns, did not want to discuss various treatment options- only 1 option interested her. She didn’t take time to explain things, just “do this”. I will be looking for a new dr

I visited Dr Valencia for the first time last week and was very pleased with her examination. I only go once a year for my annual dermatology exam and she is very thorough and listens very closely to what you think is important. She is also very pleasant and when I left I told her that I really enjoyed my visit!!! I would recommend her and her assistant Cheryl to anyone. It was a very good visit and I feel that they are experts in their field.

I have been a patient of Palm Harbor Dermatology since October 2017. I have visited the Westchase location six times to-date, and was (and still is) treated by Dr. Valencia. Dr. Isabel Valencia is superbly skilled, noticeably courteous and sincerely interested in the well-being of her patients. Her calming manners and respectful patience are second only to her exceptional professionalism. It is quite obvious that this practice is very well-managed, well organized and an observably dedicated

So glad I switched practices and much more afforable. I would highly recommend. Also love the patient portal - you can keep up with your info
