OMG the assistant/nurse was AMAZING and a half!!! I really wish I wasn’t so horrendous with names because she truly rocked. I do remember that she’s from Arizona, so hopefully that narrows it down and you can give her like 10 high fives for me today. Dr. Speck is the real deal! She’s incredibly knowledgeable and makes you feel at home. Thank you for debunking the myth I’ve been believing my entire life that it’s worth buying 1000 SPF every time I need sunscreen 😉 The gal that rang me up and scheduled my next appointment was also fantastic! Sorry for the J.K. Rowling length novel, but y’all have an insanely solid team. Wish I had to come in more often (kind of but not really because I’m stoked that my skin is good for now!).
