Stay away. Poorly trained staff. More interested in revenue than patient care.

This is probably a good office if you're interested in the cosmetic side of dermatology. A full body check for skin cancer was not even mentioned. And there seemed to be no choice to not buy her expensive products. Will not be going back.

Made an apt for skin check, only to arrive early , fill out paperwork and then be told she doesn't see skin checks at night. I was not informed when making the apt, which the staff wouldn't believe, and they wouldn't accommodate for their error. Would not return to an office that is so...more

Dr. Lish recommended a skin care regimen and I loved all of the products. I used to use expensive department store brands and after 2 months my skin is so much better than it ever was. I have recommended Dr. Lish to my friends and family (she even found a cancer on my best friend!)
