I travel from Florida to see Dr.Ray. She is a wonderful doctor and very thorough with her treatments . Very reasonable . The staff is wonderful
in Oxford, AL |
Very good practice and super care. The standard of care is current and clearly communicated. I highly recommend Dr. Ray.
Terrible! After waiting for over a month for an appointment I spent almost 2 hours in the very full waiting room. Dr. Ray spent less than 5 minutes with me despite the long wait. She seemed very preoccupied and came across as very snooty and rude. She didn't really address the issues for which I scheduled the appointment. Won't waste my time again. I would rather drive to Birmingham.

Never again will I waste my time or money here.

Jacksonville, AL |
I had a cherry red face for days and was referred to Dr. Ray. She was able to determine I had rosacea and started me on treatment right away. In a very short period of time, my face cleared up and you can't tell I have rosacea at all now. She was very understanding of how upset I was and took lots of time to answer my questions about the condition. She and her staff are always very kind and courteous when I call or come in.
