I went in for a lipoma removal, and $1530 later(and I have and had insurance at the time of the visit) I am regretting ever entering the offices of this dermatologist. Do NOT let this dermatologist near you or any of your family and friends. Seek other care, and I was referred to this woman by my primary care physician?!?! Suture job was terrible, manners were terrible and rude, regretting every moment of my decision to enter this office. The contact # on the post op paper says out of service.

Worst Dermatologist in entire Metro Atlanta. Please stay away from this Doctor if you want to save life and money. professionally I am a Nurse . I got skin infection. I called several dermatologist in Emory she is the only one I got immediate appointment. went to see her. she is rude. other staff rude too. didn't carefully look. She only spent 2 min. Bad diagnosis. wrote bad medicine. she made case worst. got app with other Dr. after 2 weeks. got right medicine. feed good in 1 application.

She is the worst Doctor I have ever meet in my entire life. she doesn't know much about the skin disease. I am surprise to see how a person like her get the degree and certificate to practice medicine. she did a wrong diagnosis and wrote me a ointment/lotion which makes my infection even worst . After 2 week asked her if she can do a better diagnosis and write other medication . she told this is the only medicine she can write and she doesn't know anything consult other dermatologist.

My whole experience at this office was negative. I arrived 20 minutes early to fill out paperwork and ended up waiting over 1.5 hours to be seen for 5 minutes. The doctor and the medical assistant didn't leave the room when I had to undress. Then they took a picture of my rash without asking permission (it was on my hip and butt) and when I walked out to leave, the picture was printed on a sheet with the front desk lady for anyone walking in to see. Unfortunately 500 characters can't fit it all.
