I had a few questions and what she said to me is that if I wanted to discuss anything but the skin check I would have to make another appointment.

If you are looking for a dermatologist, I suggest you search elsewhere. I made an appointment 3 months ago, and it was cancelled because they did not receive my medical records from NC. That is incredibly insane, after I waited for 3 entire months for this date of service and have already taken time off from a new job. It's not like I don't know what is in my medical record, or the reason I was seeing a dermatologist. Don't waste your time with this practice like I did.
