Vienna, VA |
I was most impressed with Dr. Satoskar and the service I received during a recent appointment. Her office staff was uniformly pleasant and helpful. There was very little wait time before I was taken to the exam room and a very reasonable amount in the exam room. Dr. Satoskar took quite a bit of time discussing my history, performing a full-body skin exam, and performing a biopsy of two suspicious sites. I have full confidence in her abilities and medical knowledge.

I've gone to Dr. Satoskar since she took over the practice from my previous doctor about 18 months ago. While the new offices are great and the care is probably fine, the office is incredibly difficult to work with, doesn't return phone calls or follow up and on average requires 10 calls to get one thing accomplished. After 3 months of failed light therapy for psoriasis and increasing burning on other parts of my body, I was never told to stop the treatment. I'm now shopping for a new doctor.

Used to see Dr. Horn; Dr. Satoskar was in his office while he was on sabbatical. ("Sabbatical" is like your parents telling you that your dog was taken to a farm.) Dr. S diagnosed rosacea, and prescribed a $$ cream. When asked for a cheaper Rx, she said I was a poster child for this new cream. It took me two trips to the pharmacy and 2/ 3 calls to her office to actually get the Rx sent to pharmacy. Called for an appointment today, & hung up after holding for 10 mins. Will look 4 better ofc.

I had to wait an hour and a half before.seeing the doctor. However, her nurse was very pleasant, apologetic, and listened to my complaint. The doctor apologized and said that they were trying to solve the problem and had new office staff. I was also disappointed that there was a misunderstanding in why I scheduled the appointment. Dr. Satoskar obliged me with a partial exam. I didn't think that I would be returning, but I was pleased with her exam and her demeanor, and I will give see her again.

I had an 11:00 appointment . Waited for a 1/2 hour to get in to an examining room where I sat for another 15 minutes before being told she wouldn't get to me for another 10 or 15 minutes. I got dressed and walked out. The staff was very embarrassed. I made sure the folks in the waiting room knew what I had experienced. She bought the practice of Martin Horn who ran a very successful and on-time operation for the 25+ years I went to him. He'd be embarrassed too.

She may be competent, I saw her for 30 seconds. Her nurse did the diagnosis and work. Scheduled a MOHs surgery. I am here for the second visit for the MOHs and have wailed an hour for a my procedure. There were 12 in the waiting room when I arrived, feeling a little like cattle. I will use this site to find a new practice.

Dr. Satoskar is the very best dermatologist I've seen and I've had numerous bouts of melanoma. She's thorough, knowledgeable about new treatments, wonderful bedside manner and funny! She's opened a new office now, taking over for someone else, so the office is not running as smoothly as she would like, but this will change. She called me at home to apologize for a longer than normal wait. You don't get that very often these days!!
