Patient Comments (8)
Omaha, NE |
I don't have any problem getting an appt and wait time is reasonable. But Dr. Darling always says, "What do you think?" "Do you want to try this medication?" My response is, "I don't know; you're the Doctor!" The staff is courteous, helpful and empathetic. But Dr. Darling could improve her bedside manner. I have been very dissatisfied with her treatment of serious medication induced psoriasis. I received better treatment from my PCP.Dr. Darling barely looked at all the pustular sores on my body.
When it comes to prescribing RX's for treatment of difficult skin problems, we practice a collaborative style of medicine to review options with patients. There is often more than one approach and we ask for patient participation to ensure the best outcome. It is not meant to transfer the medical decision to our patients, but to inform/guide the patient through treatment options. We appreciate the positive review of our staff, ease of appointment, and wait times. Midwest Dermatology Clinic

Wish I had seen her rating BEFORE my appointment. HUGE waste of money. Went to get a diagnosis - left with no written instructions, nor explanation or thoughts on the dermatitis I went in for. No follow-up either. No thoughts from her whatsoever - just a few minutes of her time; made uncomfortable by her quickness to leave the room. Left feeling cheated. Waste of time.

She is not giving proper treatment for the problem..she just ignored problem, as she came in and walk away. Waste of time.

My daughter came down with a strange rash that quickly covered her entire body. I explain the whole list of symptoms my daughter was having which Dr Darling barely wanted to listen to. She only examined the rash on the back of her hand and would not even let me remove my daughters clothing to examine the rash on her entire body. She basically shrugged me off. I next went to my daughters pediatrician and another dermatologist who quickly diagnosed my daughter with an auto immune disorder.

Waste of time and money. She doesn't have patience to listen problem

Wait time has been ridiculous! Every time I show up for my appointment I usually wait upwards of 45 minutes and when I do finally get to see the MD she talks so fast and is only in your room for about 90 seconds (if you're lucky). If you're looking for good wholesome care, do not see Dr. Darling.
