Although Dr. Maffei was pleasant to talk to, it was evident she listened to nothing I discussed with her. As I spoke of my acne issues and skin type, I made sure to specify I had sensitive skin and needed my birth control to remain effective. After being in the room for under 5 minutes she rapidly listed off prescriptions to her assistant. As I went home to look up what she prescribed me the side effects were skin sensitivity and reduced effectiveness of birth control. She listening to nothing

I just recommended (another) friend. Dr. Maffei is upfront, doesn't experiment with unnecessary drugs and gets to the point. She helped me get off of steroid creams on my face that another doctor had prescribed for years. It was a long process and everything she told me to do and that would happen was spot on. I had no idea you could get hooked on a face cream...she took one look and told me exactly what was going on. I highly recommend her.
