      A true artist and very knowledgeable!. Great staff and a nice environment.

      Bad. Did large biopsy without telling me I would be in a great deal of pain when local wore off. Rushed though, was rude. Never called to tell me biopsy was positive. Referred me to radiation oncology. After daily radiation cancer came back. Went to new Dr I loved.....did a Mohs and told me I was too young for radiation. If I would have met this other Dermatologist I would have never had to suffer through needless radiation. Mohs cured me. It was unfortunate I was referred to her.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
