Patient Comments (2)

Very rude comments made during visit. Rushed me through and made me feel that it was a burden for him to see me.

Addressed only one of the three reasons I went to see him. With that one medical reason, he misdiagnosed it, never indicated any followup was required. I went to another dermatologist who removed the growth and submitted it to a lab for analysis. Result: precancerous.
