MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN A PATIENT OF DR PENTEL FOR MANY YEARS. HE HAD A 10:30 APPOINTMENT TODAY. AT APPROXIMATELY 10:40, I ASKED WHY HEHAD NOT BEEN CALLED BACK. I WAS ADVISED THAT THE DOCTOR WAS RUNNING LATE. WHEN I ASKED HOW LONG IT WOULD BE I WAS TOLD THE 9:30 PATIENT HAD JUST LEFT. MY HUSBAND HAS JUST RECENTLY BEEN RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL AND IS ON OXYGEN. HIS TANK WAS NOT GOING TO LAST MUCH LONGER SO I ASKED IF HE COULD BE SEEN. THE RECEPTIONIST CHECKED WITH THE DOCTOR AND WAS TOLD HE COULD NOT BE PUT IN FRONT OF ANYONE. SHE DID OFFER TO MAKE A NEW APPOINTMENT FOR FIRST THING IN THE MORNING (DAY NOT SPECIFIED). I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW ANY PHYSICIAN COULD NOT ADDRESS A PATIENT DEPENDENT ON OXEGEN AND ABOUT TO RUN OUT. THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. MY HUSBAND IS 84 YEARS OLD.

Follow up after appointment is poor in regards to my prescription. Being a good doctor also requires good communication.

I’ve been going to Dr. Pentel for over ten years. She discovered I had melanoma twice and removed it all. I now go annually to get my skin check and Dr. Pentel and her staff are always kind and professional. If you want a Dermatologist that knows what skin cancer looks like...she is your doctor. ??

I have been a patient for many years and initially the care was great! In the past few years this seems to be more of a day spa than a dermatologist office. The cosmetic procedures seem to be more the focus and I no longer see this doctor. Also had some issues with them filing and billing insurance incorrectly. This cost quite a but of money and happened on more than once occassion over a period of a few years until i actually realized it.

I have been going to Southside Dermatology for a very long time so I thought, after google reviews and a consult with a staff member, I would have a laser treatment to collapse a small area of spider veins in one of my legs. I was told it could be done with one treatment and two weeks after treatment I was told I probably need 1-2 more. Iinitial treatment caused the small veins to become more accentuated. One thing that is hard for me to tolerate is blatantly being mislead.

I am not going to recommend this office for any procedures because I had an cool sculpting for $1900 and no results. I feel it should have been re-done for free not 30% I would have paid $3600.00. I am very very upset with this office . No call from anyone for months. Please don’t have this cool sculpturing.

No other healthcare provider I've found has been more kind, more thorough, more competent, or more compassionate than Dr. Pentel. Truly someone dedicated the doing a great job and it trickles down to her staff as well. What a great experience.

Everything about the group is fine-- except the WAIT! 40 minutes after my appointment time, I was finally brought back-- and no apology!
