Dr. Simpson continuously misdiagnosed 2 basal cells as insect bites after I pointed them out numerous times. After she was a no-show for my next appointment I saw another dermatologist who immediately diagnosed the 2 spots as basal cells.

I went in with a spot on my forehead. Her assistant took all my info. Dr. S walked in my exam room with medicine in hand and my diagnosis without even looking at me. She said I had an allergic reaction, even after I told her I wasn't feeling well, and also had been running a fever. I ended up going to urgent care the next day and discovered that my 'allergic reaction' she hadn't bothered looking at, was in fact Shingles. It was very obviously to every other doctor I had to see after that.

Dr. Simpson is personable, knowledgeable and never makes you feel rushed. Would recommend her over and over again. I've been going to her for about 10 months.
