When you walk in the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, they get your paper work together quickly and the longest I had to wait was 15 mins. Dr. DeVore gives more than one option if there is a skin issue. I will def be coming back!

This is a VERY UNCLEAN office, as well as the Unprofessional attitude by Karen and many staff members which is unacceptable. As a man I expect a higher degree of concern for the patients. My family will not be returning for any reason. 1-13-2022 DO NOT TRUST THIS PROVIDER!

Doctor and staff are very unprofessional. Be cautious with charges. Services can cost 200.00 above equivalent services offered by reputable and professional dermatologist/practices. Avoid this practice.

I would absolutely recommend Dr DeVore and her staff! They all are extremely caring and make you feel comfortable. Dr DeVore was very thorough in her decisions with my diagnosis and treatment and I look forward in continuing under her care.

I have been using Dr. Devore's services for the last 10 years. I can't remember waiting over 15 minutes to be taken to the room and no more than 15 minutes in the room before she came in. I have always found her friendly, professional and willing to look at anything. I am amazed at what some of these reviews say and find it hard to believe they aren't fabricated.

Does not touch the patient at all she goes based off what you tell her not what she see's (cause she don't even get close) she does not come across as concerned and caring. Seems to be all about the money. The office does not call back in a reasonable time even considering the "next business day". HORRIBLE!!!!!! I've been with her for a little over a year and I'm finally fed up and going elsewhere.

Idk how it says the wait time is 16-30 mins. I’ve been here 6 times now & every time I’ve waited at MINIMUM 45 minutes. Sometimes 1 & 1/2 hours. A ridiculous amount of time to wait only for her to come in the room for 5 mins max. She is also rude. I expressed my concerns about my skin to her & she did not take me seriously AT ALL. She has a terrible attitude. My mother came here for about a year also & ending up switching doctors bc of long wait times & her dismissal of patient concerns. IM DONE

The wait time was at least 45 minutes but that’s not the worst BEWARE this Dr. was very unprofessional and nasty. She sat herself right in front of my husband with her long legs wide open enough so that her dress was to the edge of her thighs and we could see her crotch. This is how she conducted the entire visit! I felt very uncomfortable and disgusted! No values for herself or her patients. Her staff was kind and helpful unlike her she didn’t seem to care about our concerns. Will not go back!

It was a welcome change to have a physician look & listen, instead of relying on a computer. Dr Devore properly diagnosed my condition & has given me hope & encouragement, Her honesty & compassion is refreshing. I was originally misdiagnosed & left untreated by another physician, so I highly recommend Dr Devore.
