What People Say About Dr. Tamara Koss, MD
Reply
Dr Koss is compassionate and caring. She is a great doctor that takes her time with her patients for both medical and cosmetic treatments. Her staff is also excellent from the time you walk in to the time you leave especially the medical assistants. I would highly recommend her for any age group TL

WORST new patient experience and do NOT recommend wasting your time, energy and money & hope to fix your derm problems at this practice. I waited 30 minutes to see a Dr. Tamara Koss and she spent less than 5 minutes with me and the whole time she rushed through the appointment and could not wait to leave the room. Dr. Koss DID NOT CONDUCT A THOROUGH EXAM. She did not even prescribe me the right type of antibiotic to cure my acne. Find another doctor that will actually listen and try to help you.
