Misdiagnosed Skin condition for newborn baby
Can’t write all the details but would like to suggest any parents thinking of getting their child’s skin condition checked with Dr Mengesha, to go and have all other possible causes of skin conditions and reactions evaluated first, including any unknown allergic conditions. Skin eczema due to food allergy was never diagnosed but was treated as a case of extreme skin dryness and potent creams where prescribed for over an year to a new born baby. Finally when nothing of his prescription made any difference and got to see something similar to anaphylactic reaction on our baby to certain food, then only we got to know all about food allergies and its different kinds of effects on skin. Have we had been suggested of getting the baby seen by an allergist for at least once then we the parents and the baby would never have had been through such tough times.

Horrible Skin Rash
I had a very horrible skin rash on my feet, after a pedicure, I was referred to Dr. Yebebe Menguisha. Dr. Menguisha assured me that he would rid me of the Eczema. Amazingly he did. I’m very grateful…

I was a brand new patient and I waited a month for an appointment here, just for the doctor to see me for not even five minutes. He looked at my skin and gave me a prescription without asking about my routine/products I use on my face. He was reluctant to even answer the questions I had for the prescription he was giving me. I went home and used a different type of face wash under his suggestion and it has made my skin super dry, red, and sensitive. I do not even plan on picking up the prescription.

What am AMAZINGLY fantastic physician! I'm a new patient and have had a wonderful experience thus far. Dr. is very thorough and spent ample time w/me and I didn't feel rushed at all. It is very evident that he genuinely cares and listens to his patients. On top of that, he is very kind. The office staff has been great and overall, impressed w/the practice. If you're searching for a considerate and knowledgeable dermatologist, Dr. M is the best!

I have been seeing Dr. Mengesha for almost 10 years. In that time he has seen me for everything from oily skin to cancer biopsies. Dr. Mengesha is smart, well trained, straightforward, and professional. I have also had great success working with his office staff. They are warm, friendly, and responsive. I have seen other dermatologists in the Valley, and Dr. Mengesha is hands down the best.

Dr. Mengesha doesn't follow through on what he says he will do. My son saw him for acne and after talking to him for 5 minutes decided he may be depressed, we were forced to see a psych dr for him to continue his meds which he said he would call in once cleared by psych dr). After following instructions and having a letter from the psych dr faxed to the office he is now refusing to give my son his meds until we make another office visit when he was just seen 2 weeks ago. Very frustrated!!!!!!

No advance explanation of procedures or how charges were to be tallied. I explained to Doctor, I had gone camping recently, had cuts from thorns. I pointed out the healing cuts as we proceeded, but he hit at least 2 multiple times with the freeze-blast. I thought, ok, whatever, but meanwhile the nurse was documenting every pull of the trigger, out of my line of sight. Later billed for 14 blasts, I only counted 7. Called their billing to dispute but told too bad, correct procedures were followed
