My appt with Dr. Reed was an excellent experience. An honest Doctor. I am happy to have had the pleasure of meeting him.
in Quincy, MA |
Dr. Reed, without exception, has always made me feel at ease and in good hands. He is one of those rare physicians who make you feel like you are his only patient in the time spent with him.
in Alexandria, VA |
My friends, children and I have been a patient of Dr. Reed's for years and have always found his care to be top notch. As a nurse, I can recognize a skilled clinician, and have had him operate on me several times without issue or scarring. His staff are professional, and his PA's well qualified. I highly recommend Dr. Reed to anyone seeking a dermatologist or cosmetic skin care.
in Quincy, MA |
I have been seeing Dr. Reed for 5 years for both cosmetic and medical dermatology. My son is a patient as well. We have experienced nothing but professionalism, privacy, and friendly cooperative staff. Dr. Reed answers all my questions and takes time with me. If you are apprehensive or don’t have a dermatologist, I would highly recommend Dr. Reed and his wonderful staff.
in Quincy, MA |
I was nervous and apprehensive to say the least about my surgical appointment. I had a "sty" on my eyelid most of my life, and knew it was time to have it removed. Every staff member at DermASAP, from front desk to medical assistants to Dr. Reed himself made me feel so comfortable and at ease. I was super nervous and they honestly changed the whole experience around for me! And, most importantly I suppose, my eye looks incredible with zero scaring or defect. What a crew they have here! A+!!
in Quincy, MA |
Dr. Reed is an exceptional medical professional. His work is flawless and his bedside manner is stellar. I'm always very comfortable with him. I always tell friends and colleagues to "be careful, it's your face", but I am completely confident in giving Dr. Reed my full trust and total carte blanche with my face. His extensive experience and exemplary education make his work perfect. I'm a perfectionist and a "nit-picker", and I love Dr. Reed because he is too. My skin has never looked better.
in Marshfield, MA |
The medical staff assisting Dr Reed were all smiles as well as professional. I felt even more at ease after my intake with the medical assistant, I believe her name was Michelle. What a doll! Dr. Reed did both Botox and Filler injections, and I seriously couldn't be happier with the results! He was thorough, knowledgeable and patient. I felt like I really got his 100%. Never felt rushed or pushed in any direction regarding my treatment.
in Quincy, MA |
Seeing Dr. Reed was very helpful. He quickly diagnosed the problem and provided relief.

He seems like a nice guy but most importantly he's keeping my skin healthy - therefore as appealing as possible for this guy.
in Quincy, MA |
His staff is friendly, professional and I appreciate the ease of booking appointments, getting seen quickly and helpful portal and reminders provided by his staff.
in Plymouth, Ma |
Inept and unprofessional office staff not to mention bellicose attitude. As another patient said you never see the actual Dr who must be behind the curtain charging all the IPads his staff run around with. The PA or NP or resident or general factotum who was in the room w me was non-communicative w a perpetual scowl on her face. Both myself and my wife shared the same experience. Find someone else.
Jeff, Sorry you did not have a satisfactory visit. I see patients regularly in both my offices. If you or your wife ever wants to see me, just request it when the appointment is made.Patients are told whom their appointment is being made with, and if you prefer to see someone else, with different personality or credentials, you always have that option. If you don't like the electronic medical records (IPADS), we are in the same boat, but the government has unfortunately mandated them. Dr Reed
in Plano, TX |
Dr. Reed was Very patient and understanding.
Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate the opportunity to provide care for you, Dr. Reed
Plymouth, MA |
You never see him. It's always with a PA, which they seem to go through alto. I've seen at least 3 different PA's in the last 4 visits. Tough to form a relationship when the turn around is so high.
Dear Anonymous, For your sake and others reading this, if you want to see the doctor, you simply have to mention that when you set up your appointment. When an appointment is made, you are told who you will be seeing and asked if you are ok with seeing a PA. If you agree to see the PA, you may not see me unless they need help with your problem or diagnosis. When online appointments are made, you are also informed whether you have chosen to see a PA or not. Hope this helps to clarify, Dr Reed
