been a patient for years, called to make a appointment this week and said I could get in around February....seriously ??? I was very disappointed said ok ill find another doctor and she said ok. Very rude and not helpful at all !!!!!

I was treated poorly by the receptionist in a 30 minute conversation to the point of a 2nd party came on the phone and HUNG up on me. I asked for the office manager and was told Dr. Debates no longer will see me even though they didn't hear what me and my wife went through with his rude receptionist. Refused to see me before that unless I procured my own records. What doctor cannot get records from another doctor? Disappointing to turn away a guy with chronic skin cancer because of rude staff.

He is the 3rd Dermatologist I've been to. Sometimes there's a wait to get in to see him, you need to book your appointment and wait months, but he is well worth the wait!! I will never go to another Dermatologist! He IS THAT GOOD!???? REALLY REALLY! He's honest, to the point, gentle, caring, & polite.
