A very nice person but felt like she was in a bit of a hurry my last two visits. Had to stop her as she was about to exit the room after dry icing spots of pre cancer spots to ask questions I had come with. Also, had to back after last visit for more work as not all spots were attended to. This time she seemed unsure as to the difference between breakouts and pre cancer and asked me about spots to attend to. Will now have to go back again. Don't mean to seem critical, but I have a high ins. deductible so would be nice to have things taken care of in one shot!!

At times it is difficult to reach someone at the appointment desk via phone - often needing to leave a message

I’ve been seeing Marie for over 15 years. She’s helped me through troubling acne and now that I’m older, helping me with over sun exposure. She’s a lovely human and extremely professional and knowledgeable.
