This doctor seems to be very comfortable in prescribing high doses of accutane and then continuing to do so even when the patient states they started having suicidal thoughts after 2 months of taking it. No regard for anyone in a mental health crisis & is comfortable in sending the patient out the door despite this being documented- & then had audacity to say that it WASNT the meds to someone who was previously healthy. Do not trust this negligent practice.

Saw Dr. Terhune yesterday and as always she was efficient, engaging and answered all questions and spoke to all concerns. I didn't feel rushed, she spent the right amount of time. Regarding the staff, from signing in to leaving they were extremely nice. I would always recommend her, she is outstanding as well as the team of people that work with her!!!

I am not sure who would ever give this Dr. a less than perfect score! She is great, funny, professional, speedy, kind, and explained everything in depth. The only thing I can tell future patients, is that she is NOT your standard slow talking, dull doctors. So if you are looking for terrible for a doctor with no personality, Dr. Terhune is NOT for you. I have been to several dermatologist in several states, and not one can compare.

I have had two Basal Cells in which Dr. Terhune diagnosed right away and verified with biopsy plus later a dermatitis problem to deal with. Dr. Terhune is very knowledgeable, helpful and communicates well with her patients in the proper treatment. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful.

Dr Terhune is fantastic! I've been dealing with a rare skin break out and she has been such a tremendous help! She is willing to go the extra mile to get you healed and feeling better about your skin. She is always honest. Dr Terhune does not push oral antibiotics like some dermatologists do. She may recommend them but the decision is always yours. She is the best dermatologist I have ever had!

Rushed.I felt like I was being rushed and my questions weren't answered and I had to keep asking the same questions. The assistant must've been knew or inexperienced because even after my exam was over, she couldn't answer my questions very well. I left out of there feeling not very confident in this Dermatology practice.

Dr. Terhune and her staff are absolutely lovely! The visit was efficient, effective and there was very little wait.
