Because of dermatology’s complexity, it is absolutely crucial that patients seek skin treatments from board-certified dermatologists. They are the only true experts in medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology.

Appt at 7:50 am, arrived at 7:40. Had to ask if Dr was running late as I was still waiting at 8 am. I don't like offices that don't respect the patients time. The doctor was very thorough and explained my condition very well. She was extremely pleasant and answered all the questions I had. I would definitely recommend the doctor but be aware that the office doesn't respect the appointment times. Other people that were waiting to be seen when I was called in were still waiting when I left.
