- “I’m in and out of the office in about 15/20 minutes. Which is great, it gives me time to go get labs done (I’m an accutane patient) and call in the prescription all on my lunch break. So.convenient. I love it. Also, great staff! Very friendly.” — Katherine M. (January 24, 2019)
- “When I came in I had the thought of here we go someone who isn’t going to know and just going to give me another medication. That was not the case I came in and had a knowledgeable crew who actually asked me questions that I could really answer and get feedback from. Very professional and had a vibe of no judgement and understanding when listening to the issues I had and treated me with respect the plus being they actually took ample time to see me. Definitely recommend to anyone needing a dermatologist.” — Sean N. (January 23, 2019)
