Patient Comments (1)
Middleton, WI |
I have had psoriasis since age 4, so I have seen a number of dermatologists in the past 48 years. Dr. Poonawalla is easily the best one that I have seen. She listens, explains treatments that she is prescribing and why she feels they are the best approaches, and her treatments for me worked. She also has a great sense of humor. I am so disappointed that she is no longer at my clinic. Believe me, it is not easy to find a good dermatologist and she is one of the best.
