I have always been happy with Dr. Poinsett. She listens, is patient, caring, and pleasant. I do an annual body scan with her and she is very through and found a squamous cell spot on my arm that I never would have found myself. I feel very confident with her assessments and that is important with a dermatologist.

Appointment scheduling is great, prompt when arrival, hardly a wait and seeing the Dr. in hallway going into another patients room and then pretty much 5 min. after coming into mine and out the door in 5 min. it's an assembly line and I felt rushed, happened last appointment and that was a while ago so didn't remember what I didn't like till I went again and realized it was the same thing. Felt rushed, got in, got out as obviously did other patients. Didn't get to ask questions or discuss issues. Not what I want in a Dr., just my decision, not everyone is the same.

Very thorough, listens to her patients, doesn't rush through visit. Dr. Poinsette keeps photographic records and recently noticed a mole on my back had gotten larger and darker from comparing photos from the last visit. Mole was biopsied came back precancerous and then a wide excision was done in the center of my back. As in a previous review she also made incision on an angle. I'm a nurse sand understand why, which was if it was a straight cut my normal daily movements would have pulled incision apart. As I'm sure the same would have been if there was a horizontal cur in the eyebrow as in prior negative review. So she DOES take the into account how the wound will heal and what normal movements we make. Maybe before judging an incision they should have just asked her why she made the incision she did.

I have gone to Dr. Poinsette for several serious and non serious (cosmetic) procedures. She and her staff always take great care of me and make sure I understand exactly what is happening and what to do post-procedure. I even received a phone call from her personally a few days after my more serious appointments, and I’ve talked to friends who see her who she’s also called. I’ve recommended her to everyone I know. She’s the best in town!

I have more than 50 treatments and surgeries with Dr. Poinsette. She has always been excellent in terms of her medical knowledge, concern and thoroughness. She and her staff have helped me survive several serious issues and referred me to other specialists when needed.

I had a basal cell carcinoma size of pencil eraser about 1/3 inch above my left eyebrow just to the outside of the pupil area. Told horizontal cut would blend with face lines. Mohs procedure never mentioned. Was given a 2.5" diagonal cut that goes into eyebrow and will permanently affect my eyebrow and appearance. She never considered the aesthetic consequences I will have to live with the rest of my life. For facial work seek a dermatologist with plastics knowledge. I wish I had known to!

Very personable and thorough - willing to listen to patient and check out your concerns. Keeps photographic records so she can compare changes from visit to visit. She is willing to talk and answer questions and concerns so if you feel slighted time or attention-wise, you may want to look at whether you are engaging with her on a professional level so she has something to respond to.
