Patient Comments (4)
First of all, I went in without makeup since my issues were mostly face related. Secondly, I listed a medication many take to get off drugs, however, it’s not the case w me. I take it for a brain tumor and autoimmune disorder. I say this to say that I believe this is why this Dr was unbelievably rude. He tried to intimidate me, all but accused me of lying, didn’t listen well or thoroughly check me out. Being a Christian, the book of James has a lot to say to those who treat ppl “less than”.

My only real complaint is that I had to pay with cash, and by doing so I dont believe I was looked at in any real meaningful way. When looking for skin cancers, a quick glance is not sufficient. I totally understand that he may have been trying to save me money but whether I could pay more was never discussed. He was nice enough but again, the assumption was clear that since I didn't have insurance then surely I couldn't pay more for a thorough visit.

Terrific experience! I had facial issues - scaling, burning, and dryness; my eyelids were peeling several times a day. This happened for months. A previous dermatologist had prescribed 7 various creams and such that did not work. Dr. Abele quickly realized something in those creams irritated my skin. He gave me basics moisturizing steps & one $5 ointment. My face was clear within 2 days!!!I felt like a new person. Wish I had seen Dr. Abele sooner! Nice staff & very short wait time. He's so nice
