Patient Comments (4)
ellsworth, ME |
Only dermatologist in the midcoast, had to drive 2 hours to and back for appointment. Spent 2 minutes in exam room. Upon asking for information was handed information printed from the internet from nurse who said I was "done" and wished I have a good commute home. Was told "medication" would be sent to local pharmacy. After 2 hour return trip, entered pharmacy who did not receive script for medication and therefore did not know what the medication was. Very underwhelming experience.
Bar Harbor, ME |
Did not do the exam he claimed to do on the medical record. Missed an obvious rash. Office mis-coded the visit despite explaining to the desk that I was there only for a rash not for a screening. Then billed for a screening when a screening was not performed. Misdiagnosed rash: it was actually erythema annulare centrifugum diagnosed a week later at my annual screening exam at MGH in Boston
in Bangor, ME |
He was patient and asked me several questions about how I was feeling. I really liked him and he made a diagnosis my primary care doctor agreed with.
Dr. Sykes may be a good dermatologist, but his very poor communication makes it impossible to tell. During my first visit he would have waked out of the room without telling me anything about my condition if I hadn't asked him specifically. When he took a biopsy he didn't say a word. The only thing I knew about the procedure came from the nurse. In contrast the nursing staff were very good and did explain things they did.
