I am happy to say that I have been a patient of Dr. Straughn for over 15 years. She is a good doctor who is attentive and caring and her staff is great! I have made several referrals to her office and all have been satisfied.

I left Dr. Straughn's office in tears after paying $150 for the third office visit for folliculitis in my hairline. She and her staff failed to call prescriptions in. She scolded me for pulling my hair. I have trichotillomania and was pulling my hair in my sleep. Dr. Straughn prescribribed a low dose antihistamine which seemed to have helped but refused to refill it alleging that there was a potential interaction with my antidepressant medication.

Dr. Straughn is an excellent Dermatologist who takes time with her patients. She has been my doctor since 2013 and I always recommend her to people looking for a great Dermatologist. I love her Buckhead location and the wait time is very minimal. Her staff is also professional and friendly who greets you with a smile.

I had an office visit with Dr. Straughn early in December. As of today, March 16, 2016, I have not been treated as yet. I had to call to follow-up to get my lab results multiple times. My lab results finally came in and no one from the office called me, instead I had to call again. The office staff advised me that they were short-staffed as the reason for the delay. I finally received by prescription via mail but the pharmacy needed verification from the doctor, this has not happened as yet.
