I've never had to wait long before my appointment. The staff is always courteous. Dr. Carson and Jessica Hall are great! They're always so professional and diagnosed my issues quickly.

The best. My husband and I both see Dr. Carson for various skin cancers, scalp and skin issues. She is always caring and professional in testing and treating...giving us the greatest confidence in her.

Exceptional providers and wonderful staff make this top notch practice a place I would recommend anyone seeking a dermatology specialist. They also have incredible year round cosmetic specials that make pampering myself affordable. Whether you're in the NE or even a short 20 minute drive from downtown, this practice is worth going to.

Dr. Carson was dismissive and abrupt. She spent less than five minutes in the room, failed to fully consider the reason my doctor had referred me, and told me I was on the wrong medication (without ever asking what medications had been tried and failed in the 20 years prior) but did not offer another solution. She asked a few questions and interrupted when I attempted to answer. Eventually I gave up trying to participate in my own healthcare and sat quietly nodding. Abyssmal care.

Very impatient doctor, doesn't spend enough time with you. No bedside manner what so ever.

Dr. Carson is professional and has a very professional staff. She found the medication that helps clear up psoriasis and eczema. She then took a biopsy for a third spot for which we are awaiting results.

She is hands on and very through. Have been going to her for 14 years and have recommended a lot of my family and friends and will continue to do so. My daughter had been seen by three different people and the first time my daughter saw Dr. Carson she nailed it and three days later my daughter said first time in 2 months she has felt good. Dr. Carson will get to the bottom of any problem and that's the kind of doctor I want taking care of me and my family.

I would not recommend northeast dermatology to anyone. Dr. Carson spent ~5 mins during the visit, wasn't able to give definitive answers, and had her hand on the door while I was asking questions about my child's skin condition. There is a reason you can get into see this dermatologist in less than a month. The care here is subpar.
