I find that developing and maintaining a trusting and lasting doctor-patient relationship is of the utmost importance, because a strong doctor-patient relationship can help instill confidence and empower patients to have an active role in the treatment of their skin conditions.

From the receptionist, to the nurse, to the doctor, my experience was exceptional. Everyone was friendly and professional. They explained everything that was being done. Also, they were very patient when I asked any questions. The questions were answered in terms that a layman could understand.

There is virtually no wait time. The staff is very friendly and Dr. B gave me the most thorough skin check since I started going to a dermatologist. I had two biopsy’s done and was out the door in less than 45 minutes. I also changed my mother over to his office.
