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.

Dr B and staff were very pleasant and explained what was going to happen with the freezing off of a pre-cancerous spot beneath my eye. They were also able to fit in a full body exam so I now have that in my file if questions arise in the future.

Felt comfortable on arrival. Receptionist was friendly and welcoming. Taken back almost immediately. MA was ok - moderately friendly. I liked that I didn't have to duplicate all the medical history. Also, the medical history was minimal. Dr. very nice, low key, friendly, but professional.
