Patient Comments (1)
in Brookhaven, GA |
A horrible experience. Horrible bed mannor. I had a plantars wart for years that hurt. He said he doesn't treat for that, and to just let it run its course.Really? After two years and pain, nothing but a payment. I went to another dermatologist that cut it out, relieving the pain, and directed me to keep duct tape over it for 45 days. It's gone, but Dr Kraków was a waste of money and time.
