Have been seeing this doctor for many years due to his caring and compassion ate treatment of patients. Have tried a couple of other dermatologists only because of the long wait in his office but would not return to them. That is my only complaint,the unusually long wait upwards of three hours.

This doctor makes you wait hours and hours past your scheduled appointment time. He saw me for 2 minutes. Why can you schedule people on top of one another!! Respect my time. Never going back.

Plan to give up your entire day to see this doctor. First visit took 1 and 1/2 hour to be called inn and once inside another hour to see anyone, second visit two hours past my appointment time without any explanation, I walked out . Overbooking !!!!!, guess he learned from the Airlines, your schedule appointment means nothing, neither is your time ... . I will see someone else who treat me with respect and not like a product. Your choice !!!!

Dr is professional, however the waiting time was extremely long. We arrived 10 minutes earlier and after waited for one hour, I asked the front desk how much longer we have to wait. The receptionist basically told me I should've expected this ( although no one mentioned to me could be such long waiting while I made the appointment for my daughter). Then she continued telling me that other people waited for up to 2 hours and I could either continue waiting or leave. This was very unprofessional.
