Vallejo, CA |
I really appreciated this doctor. I was late and she squeezed me in. She was very warm and supportive and thorough.

I am a melanoma survivor and chose to see Dr. Kessides based upon her impressive resume. Unfortunately, my initial visit was the least friendly doctor's appointment I have ever experienced. Not only was she borderline rude but at the end of the visit she suggested that I begin seeing my primary care physician once every year and a half for a full body skin exam. Based upon my history I have never before had a doctor suggest that I should see a dermatologist less than twice a year.
