I have had 3 visits with this Doctor. The first visit she seemed friendly and knowledgeable and gave me plenty of time. The 2nd and 3rd visits, she gave me maybe 5 minutes of her time (This included my annual mole check which was so fast I can't see how she saw anything). I found her impatient and in a hurry with no time to answer questions or discuss things. I have a spot on my face which she has not been able to resolve which concerns me. I am changing doctors as I don't feel I can trust her judgement.

I have no words. I am still dealing with problems ONE year after superficial basal cell Moh surgery on my face. I have no words. Just seek another doctor. There are so many to choose from.
