Found out in ten minutes what I had and treated me with medicine for my autoimmune disease that 237 other doctors said where chronic hives. I used to walk on bruises. Filed bankruptcy and thousands on unnecessary dental work.

Drs. are good, but don't be a an hurry for an emergency appointment. I've been waiting 18 days for a emergency consultation and still nothing available. I went to another Dermatologist for immediate care.
