I look at each patient as an individual and recognize that there is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. I take the time to make sure my patients understand their condition and treatment approach.

Did not have to wait long in the waiting time, the nurse and doctor I saw were both very kind and answered any questions I had, and made me feel very taken care of.

Our visit was an annual follow up for our young son. The conversation was great and our provider answered all our questions. However, she did not exam our sons skin other than when we pointed out a specific place. I would expect her to want to see progress or ensure that nothing has changed/developed.

As a new patient, I thought that Katy Duffy was very friendly and personable. I felt that she truly listened to me, and took everything I had to say into consideration. We worked together in coming up with a good starting point for a regimen to work towards my skin concerns. The only downfall about my experience is that I didn’t feel the personal touch from the nurse, Alex, was there. She was very sweet though. Working in the medical field, I didn’t like that I was told “we’ll be in #9 on the left” and I had to lead the way. Then before Alex left the room she gave me directions of how to get out of the office from the room, instead I thought walking me out would have been more professional. It didn’t bother me too much, but it’s an odd feeling as a patient to walk alone behind a nurse standing at a counter with PHI up on her laptop talking with another nurse. Just food for thought! Otherwise, my experience was great!
