      While you may have to wait a few extra minutes in the waiting room later in the day, Dr Stephen is very knowledgeable, professional and personable. She caught several melanomas on me which required surgery, before they were a more serious issue. Explained the issues an options completely.

      The wait time was more than I expected (30 minutes), but once I got into the examination room, Dr Stephen came in the room with no additional waiting. She did her usual "thorough"examination which I appreciated. j
