Castle Rock, CO |
A couple months ago I went to see Dr. Asarch because I had a rash on my stomach and back. I felt like I had bugs crawling on my skin. Dr. Asarch looked at my rash and said he didn't know what was biting me. I asked him if he could do a skin culture to find out what it was and he said," No, I'm not going to do that!" He then handed me a bottle 0.06 of Cordran Lotion and walked out of the room. Very rude! My GP requested I see a different Dermatologist. I was diagnosed with Grovers disease!
