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.

The “n/a” answers are because there hasn’t been time to know that, yet. The only thing I didn’t like is that I wish I could have gotten a sooner appointment from when I called, but it sounds like Dr. B and others are going to be in GH more in the future. Hope that helps 🤓

Everyone was friendly except the assistant was quiet not very friendly. Maybe just her personality but also maybe she had something going on and was not 100% herself. Overall it’s a good office as far as I can tell from one visit

The doc. did an amazing job with making sure to care for my son's medical needs. He also was very understanding when my dad had to make most of all the appointments. Any time I need to change time or date, the front office is very understanding. Thank you
