Dr. Tafeen is a excellent physician. Some individuals may not enjoy his style but when it comes to the most important point his knowledge is great. My family has gone to him for years. Dr.Tafeen has treated my husband who has had about every kind of skin cancer. He's kind and cares for his patients. The office has never been anything but nice to me.

This office charges $235.00 for a 15 minute well check! Highway robbery in my opinion. I had previously gone to Greensboro dermatology where the well check is half this price and the doctors are much more professional , experienced and qualified and only went to Carolina derm because Dr Tafeen was the only derm in my network. Very disappointing and frustrating as no one can tell you in advance what the payment will be. I would not recommend based on this.
