I saw this doctor 2 months ago and was very, very pleased with the doctor. He was very friendly and seemed very caring, and explained things to me. Also followed up with a house call to see how I was doing. As for the staff, they were wonderful. Very nice and friendly receptionist named Bethany, the doctor's assistant Diana wash very nice and knowledgable, A very nice and efficient doctor's office to deal with. Would highly recommend it. Best dermatology office. Great experience!

I called ahead to say I was going to be 10 to 15 minutes late and they told me to come in anyways so I rushed over and I got there 15 minutes later and was very apologetic and the front desk lady was very rude to me and told me she would reschedule me which I am fine with and I understand, but her attitude was so hostile and rude. Her name was Bethany and I'm sure her employer would like to know how she treats patients. I should not have been late and understand but not the rudeness.
