Patient Comments (4)
I went several times and discontinued going as I walked away with the feeling that I was only a number; one of many patients in a line of "get them in and get them out" mentality. The more patients they see in a day, the more money the doctor earns. As a result, on the several occasions I went I always spent much more time with the nurse, then the doctor whisking in with a curt greeting and after a perfunctory visit, out she went. Overall, this doctor lacks good bedside manners.

very quick exam. did not engage. a previous dermatologist I used examined me with magnifying glass and was very thorough. Dr Smith was very cursory and quick. Did not even ask if I use sunscreen / prevention.
Clifton Park, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr Smith's for a few years. I was never 100% satisfied but I also had no major concerns until this past year. I went for a second opinion and am scheduled to have a few things removed that Dr Smith seemed unwilling to remove herself. The last straw was her comment of, If your hairdresser sees anything in your scalp, make sure she tells you, so you can tell me'. I'm sorry but that's your job to check my scalp for cancerous growths, not my hairdresser's.

This was a positive business-like experience but my clinical situation was very straightforward.
