I believe in treating my patients the way I treat my family or close friends. I give them respect, attention, and a personalized approach. I don’t offer treatments or counsel that I wouldn’t give to those I care about most. I strongly believe that patients should have access to their dermatologist on an urgent basis and not be forced to wait weeks or months when they have an active issue.
