Patient Comments (1)
Raphine, VA |
He was absolutely terrible. He made uninformed decisions and used bad medical practices. As a result of his negligence and incompetence I ended up with an infection. While I caught it early, it could have been very serious. He uses "clean" not sterile procedures in an insufficiently cleaned room, which is no doubt how I got an infection. Save yourself the pain/trouble and find any other dermatologist.
