Dr. Shoss is an exceptional physician with extensive knowledge. He also is a very personable and caring person. He has been my dermatologist for over ten years and I give him my highest recommendation. His staff is also very competent and caring.

Have been a patient for many years. Treatment was okay, did what I needed at the time. Last few years, practice has really slid. Shoes gives you the bum's rush, acting like he's in a hurry and doesn't have time for you. Misdiagnosed a couple of things and gave me ineffective meds. Maybe time...more

They have limited knowledge i think. because i asked why this happened to my skin their answer is they never seen this kind of issue before. Gives 2 Week medication which does not heal the problem. fees are too high compare to their service.
