Patient Comments (3)
Montgomery, AL |
I did not get the best first impression during my appointment she gave me a regimen, but never explained why I experiencing the adult acne. I ended up with allergic reaction to an antibiotic she gave me, from there everything with communicating was horrible. I left messages about my situation and my daughter situation, she was also a patient as well. She was very brash when we finally spoke, I have now cancelled any future appointments and will NEVER return. I expected more, very disappointed.

This lady didn't put forth any effort to help me.When I explained the problem she didn't bother to examine or take a close look. She seemed totally disinterested and told me they didn't treat that. She didn't do anything at all to try to find out what was causing this. I had done some research and told her what the problem might be and she gave me a prescription which did in fact get rid of the condition. I got the diagnosis on my own. Some doctors are just lazy. I won't go to her again.

She is hands-on and takes the time to get to know you personally. I didn't feel like just another patient; I felt cared about.
