Least amount of time i have ever spent with a specialist on an initial visit. He examined moles i was concerned about. He biopsied two moles and prepared to leave.. I had to stop him to ask him to examine my entire body. Felt like he had some place else to be. 1 week later his staff told me that their IT team would not allow them to post lab result to the patient portal. I was told IT team didn't want patients mistakenly thinking they had cancer. IT giving advice on practicing medicine????

I have never ever been to a dermatologist before, so I was giving him a full synopsis on the life of my skin, and right when I start he says "Alright. Can you lay back?" To shut me up. So he cut me off, and I ask him if he kmows why the irritation happened, he responds, "only he knows why." (Pointing up to god) I was requesting probable cause he didnt even give a guess, I was expecting a lifetime relationship, ultimately he didnt perscribe a thing, provided NO INFORMATION! Never go to this guy!!
