in Tucker, GA |
This was my first - and last- appointment with Dr. McAlvany. I got the feeling she didn't really know what was causing my skin irritation - she mentioned several things before writing a prescription. I didn't feel confident dealing with her. She looked very unprofessional - barefoot in sandals - yes, it's summer, but still--- Also she was way too tan for a dermatologist.
