I was diagnosed with atopic dermatitis on my scalp and told to use baby shampoo. I did, and my scalp cracked and bled; my hair dyed gold from it. I contacted him, and he told me to keep using it. I went to another derm and was diagnosed correctly and given the proper treatment. I am ashamed that this man went to University of Iowa.

He spends very little time with patients actually trying to figure out your problems. He looks at you, throws a prescription or two at you and sends you on your way to see him in a year. I sent several notes to him telling him the prescriptions weren't working and received little advice. My skin actually looks worse now than it did when I first started seeing him.

As a new patient, I waited over six months to get an appointment to meet with a new doctor. Dr. Skulason started precisely at the scheduled time as I noted on the clock. Six minutes later, as I again noted, my appointment was done and the doctor had left the room. As per my chart, Dr. Skulason had completed a total body skin check and checked my seborrheic kerotosis. Although Dr.Skulason was personable, somehow, I do not feel satisfied with my exam. Don't feel the check was through.
