Today is 12/7/17. I needed an appointment this month and the receptionist told me nothing till February. Why does this website say they are taking new patients? I’m an old patient. Didn’t want to have to find a new dermatologist. They’re forcing me too. I explained the reason, didn’t make any difference.

Where do I start... I went to him knowing he didn't accept my sons insurance, the waiting room was so full people were standing on the walls and in the floors, our appointment was at 9:30 and we weren't taken to a room until 11, when he came in I told him my sons issue and that we had been driving to Jackson for appts but I couldn't any more and instead of making his own diagnosis he asked me what the other dr did and he did the same thing. And his nurse... I won't even comment on her attitude!!

Don't ever step foot into this office. First, the office resembles that of a 1980's sitcom based on their office decor. Secondly, the WITCH with a capital B at the front desk (grey hair and eyes glasses) is simply rude, no compassion and simply does not care about the patients and their overall experience. I have no idea nor reason why the medical staff keeps her employed other than she can put on a front. They were over 3 hours late and offered no apology. Stay away!!!!
