I have had trouble finding a decent dermatologist, had Safko recommended. The front desk staff is kind, waiting time is average. Nurse, Rachel, is pretty rude. We are all human and may forget things but she asked me the same question 3 times. She doesn’t know how to answer questions and gave me false information. The dermatologist is mediocre but alright, doesn’t go out of his way to explain medications or treatments/plans/process- had to do research of my own. Eh will look for another derm.

If I could give zero stars, I would. Most rude front office person ever (Amy). I canceled my appointment because she was so rude on the phone. I would rather wait and go elsewhere than deal with the unprofessional and rude demeanor of this person. I will also be filing a complaint to my insurance company.

Worse Dr & staff ever. They make appointments then make you wait for hours to be seen. They are very rude to patients walking in. Then you get rushed to see the dr. The nurse Rachel is very rude doesn't answer any questions. The rooms are dirty and lobby always smells as they do not clean.

Dr. Safko is a very caring doctor along with a very helpful staff. Pharos laser treatments have helped psoriasis more than anything else and its safe.. Its worth the drive to get this done Both feet are doing so much better, no more skin shedding, along with hand. It's hard to believe that this would work, but now skin is almost clear. Sometimes the wait for appointment is long but the Dr. does put in extra time with you, so it's worth the wait.

This offIce is horrible. It’s very old fashioned & dirty. The nurse Rhachel is very rude & doesn’t care about the patient she’s quick to dismiss you. No one there ever returns calls when you need prescriptions or have questions. You can tell how all the staff is miserable working there that’s how bad they are. The wait time is out of control sometimes hrs & when you ask they give you attitude. I definitely do not recommend.
