Consistently excellent on all levels!
Forefront Dermatology
Nowhere in the vast amount of paperwork was there a place to list the name of my family doctor. That amazes me. Every specialist I ever went t o wants to know who my PCP is, along with address and phone number. I also couldn't find any post-visit summary on my "portal" to forward to my PCP. I'll look again. Finally, I think the paperwork that needs to be filled out as a new patient is unnecessarily invasive of privacy. (None of this reflects on Dr. Costa. I liked her very much.) And REALLY finally, how can I agree to your terms of service if you don't state what they are? Why can't I say no and answer the questionnaire?

Dr Costa was nice and took her time with me. I had a few questions that she answered and explained.

The wait time is longer than normal for an appointment. I waited an hour.

Dr. Costa is wonderful! She is very thorough, and she loves The Beatles.

Dr. Costa is great. Had a recent experience at appointment, where the 9:30 appointment, young male, arrived at 10:00, i.e., 20 minutes late, and was taken before my 9:50 appointment. I feel that this is inappropriate.
