Patient Comments (3)
Ponchatoula, LA |
I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Dobson, but she instead put me in the hands of her esthetician, Leah. Leah performed a laser peel on my face and neck at a higher level than what Dr. Dobson recommended. She wasn't even suppose to use it on my neck. She said it would improve the health of my skin. What a load of B.S. My face and neck skin changed dramatically within two months. My skin is now extremely dry, wrinkly, and bumpy. I also have small scars all over now.

Dr Dobson is great! She has never given up on me, and my mission to get clear skin. I have psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea, if something doesn't work, we try something new. She offers great advice on how to manage my conditions, explains my conditions, and always tells me the next step of treatment if the one we go with doesn't work. It helps to keep me positive and optimistic. She always checks for suspicious moles, and luckily caught a precancerous mole on my back, before it metastasized. ???

She called me back for a 2nd biopsy. It turned out she had read the report wrong. I went through the anxiety and trouble for nothing. She didn't even apologize. She just said, Well, it looks like we got it all! It was a long wait to see her. To top it off she said, I hope you didn't have anything important to do today. Or something to that effect. She obviously thinks my time is not important.
