Went in for a screening of my moles for cancer. Quick check. All ok. Then he told me I’m loosing my hair and asked me if I’m ok with that. I said no. He then said I should get my blood drawn, use rogaine, he’d give me other meds too. Then I visit with him several times and insurance won’t cover so that’s $200 each. The. He will take my blood, stir it around and shoot it back in my head and in 6 months I will have thicker hair. 4 visits there, $1600 each. All this was in 5 minutes. My head was spinning. Wait - can we go back to my moles. And how come you are going bald. Do you use this? Then when his nurse gave me the wrong form for blood draw, he ripped her one. No thanks. My hair is just fine.

First let me say Sarah Donovan, PA is awesome. Probably the only reason I was willing to go back visit two. Visit one I was told it would all be covered by my insurance since I was in network, somehow I ended up paying almost $200 out of pocket 2 weeks later. Still no explanation on that. When I reached the point of frustration I demanded my medical records as I informed them I would be leaving their practice before having a mole removed. The front desk refuse to do so. So I decided to suck i

This guy was great. I went in for a general checkup and not only did he give a thorough exam, but was more than willing to answer all my questions. Excellent communicator and great bedside manner. The office staff was helpful and efficient. Seriously, this was one of the best physician office visits I've ever had. Highly recommend.

I went to see Dr. Sebastien at the end of 2015, and this man gave me only 5 minutes of his time after waiting to be seen by him for over 25 minutes. I was very disappointed in the visit because I felt as if he could care less about my concerns. He shined a light on my head, lifted my shirt to view my back and recommended men's Rogaine (by the way I'm a female). My insurance company denied my claim because his office/staff submitted paperwork stating I did not have a referral, which was false!

I went in for a skin cancer check, it took less than 5 minutes. In other words, if you have legit concerns, go elsewhere, no thorough. Also a side note, I'm pretty sure there was no handwashing going on in between patients. The speed at which he was going from room to room, made it pretty impossible. As a provider myself, that's all it really takes to choose not to return. On a positive, he was fairly friendly and seemed knowledgeable.
