I would never go back to this doctor again. I understand he might be busy,but at least spend a couple of minutes in the exam room with me and talk to me. I had four issues I wanted addressed. I figured let me just get everything over with at once but he didn't give me an opportunity to tell him what I needed. I felt as though he just wanted to get out of there and get to his next patient. He addressed one issue and asked me if there was anything else and I told him the second and he took care of the second issue. Next thing I know he's gone and the nurse is bringing in information about a lesion that I had. I told her I wasn't done and ask to see him again. I had a skin tag under my arm that was pretty big so he froze it and acted like I was bothering him asking him to take a look at it. the skin tag did not freeze probably because he was holding his paint sideways and it really didn't hit the skin tag. I now have to contact Blue Cross Blue Shield to pay for another dermatologist.

I've had 3 appointments with Dr. Brieva, only one of which he was close to being on time to. The last two I had requested the first appointment in the day; when I get there, both times, 15 minutes after my appointment was supposed to begin someone else was called up to go in to see him. Both times I left as soon as I heard that. This last time, I saw him getting out of the elevator as I was leaving! If a doctor is this lazy about coming in, makes me wonder where else he cuts corners.
