I've known Dr. Appiah many years ago when she was practicing in a multi-dermatologist office in Alexandria. When I found out she established her own practice, my family followed her. My sons and I are patients of hers. We find her bedside manners to be authentic. She is very pleasant with us. Her practice has grown over the many years and that is telling of her professionalism and knowledge in her area of specialization. We like her a lot. Her staff are also nice and friendly.

Great practice. I would highly recommend Dr. Appiah and anyone on her team. If you want to work with a doctor who is direct, efficient and focused on finding a solution to your problem dont bother to look around. I have been to many dermatologist and by far Dr. Appiah ranks the highest in terms of her knowledge and thoroughness.

I found the experience with this practice to be outstanding -- kind, professional, courteous, and fast. The receptionist did a great job of helping me get my records up to date. The technician reviewed my information and asked about any concerns - great job! Dr. Appiah is everything that you can hope for in a doctor -- she listened to my concerns, conducted a thorough examination, and provided me detailed instructions regarding some minor treatment. Start to finish, an "A" Grade!

Dr. Appiah is the best dermatologist I've ever had. My child's pediatrician advised us to see a pediatric dermatologist with John Hopkins. I knew the best place to take her was Dr. Appiah. It was a great decision!! It was worth the 2-hour drive. She is incredibly knowledgeable of her field.
