Patient Comments (1)
Mineral, VA |
Initially, I viewed Dr. DeSimone as a very thorough and caring MD.- each visit thereafter she has disappointed me in her lack of attention and treatment being left to techs who are not trained, and my receiving useless treatments. Annual visits have come to a 5-minute scan with no attention to detail and my email after a photo therapy treatment and the invitation to contact her disregarded completely. I would not recommend her to anyone with serious skin problems who needs attention to detail
