I thought Dr. Pace was very nice. I was a few minutes late for my appointment and was not admonished at all he even wanted to shake my hand even with scabies. that was a nice touch. Because I was afew minutes late I felt a little rushed and would have liked to discuss my condition a little bit more. But it was my fault I was late.

I got to the office about 15 minutes early, but they took me in right away! Was attended to just as fast by the nurse and the doctor. Dr. Pace is very likeable, he took the time to get to knowme and to listen to my needs and concerns. As soon as I left the office I called my good friend, who is also looking for a dermatologist and told her about him. I will recommend him to everyone I know!

I have really been very anxious about my hair loss situation & Dr. Pace was informative & very clear about what could be done. I immediately relaxed & felt assured that it wasn't the end of the earth, yet I felthe understood my angst and was pleased to be able to help me with the problem. I very much liked his approach.

Dr. Pace knows what he is doing and is thorough in his examination and diagnosis. He makes one feel very comfortable. I am not as crazy about disrobing with the scribe in the room taking notes at all times, but realizethat with the new commands of the medical system, in order to have time to work with patients, someone other than the doctor needs to take notes. I have another physician who is on the computer the whole time during patient visits. That is not a good solution. Perhaps some kind of voice to text system would be a great middle ground and preserve some patient modesty... CB

I absolutely loved my visit with Dr. Aaron Pace. He was so understanding and willing to help with the issues I was dealing with. If I could recommend any doctor for dermatology, it would hands down be him. When I triedto make appointments with other doctors; their wait time was 3-4 months, while Dr. Pace was at most 2 weeks. I am grateful I chose him and I was so happy with my visit.

I was very pleased to find a good dermatologist here in the Tacoma area. I recently moved to WA from NE and have a routine checkup each year. I now have a very nice young and caring, professional dermatologist here thatwill be mine for further checkups for the rest of my life and as long as he stays in this area.

Too technological, his assistant just sat in the back and played with iPad, it was extremely distracting and felt very hurried, she never made eye contact. But Dr.Pace himself was extremely professional and attentive.

The wait wasn't too long. I was a first-time patient so I used the wait-time to fill out all the paperwork. There was fairly loud country music playing in the room I was left in, and I felt bothered by itso I turned it off. Then I realized why the music was so loud - the walls were paper thin so I could hear with crystal clarity what was being said next door. I heard the entire patient-doctor conversation through the wall. My visit with the doctor did not feel private, however Dr. Pace was nice and helpful.
