I was very pleased with Dr. McFalda. After being to another Dermologist multiple times for the same skin condition without results, Dr. McFalda diagnosed me and prescribed the medication that got rid of the problem I was having. I would, and have recommended her to friends and family.

Misdiagnosis- chose another office and doctors. After two years of suffering long waits to get appointments and misdiagnosed I was fed up and moved to another doctor - Siegel in Waterford who is great. Don't go here!!

The office staff was HORRIBLE. Will never be back. They obviously don't need my business as they have too many patients to handle efficiently. AVOID.
