Raleigh, NC |
I have been going to this practice for my teenage daughter's acne for about 16 months. It takes months to get an appointment, they have canceled my appointments twice and the reschedule is at least another month out. My daughter's acne is still not controlled and I've spent over $2000 in medication and appointments. She is on five different medications? I would not recommend this office.
