Deborah spent time with me explaining my patch test results and talked about my plan of care. She is fantastic!

The only negative I can think of is the horrible music playing in the background. Not sure if whiny pop is a music category but I'm not sure how to classify it any other way. A few of the songs where somewhere between Fran Drescher scraping her nails on a chalkboard and a dull, rusty dental drill. . Everything else about the experience from requesting my first appointment through scheduling my follow up was perfectly smooth and professionally done.

The wait time was a slow and not explained. My appointment was scheduled for 3:10. I arrived 15 minutes prior and was quickly checked in. I was not taken to a room until 3:45 and not seen until 4:15. No explanation for delay.
