I felt like it is more of a Cosmetic Skin Care than the General Dermatology for Skin Problems

Dr. Holy was great. She was extremely professional and thorough. There is no question she is interested in her patient's long term health. Dr. Holy offered thoughtful recommendations for how to reduce the risks of past and future sun damageto the skin. I highly recommend Dr. Holy to those seeking a professional and caring dermatologist.

The visit was great. I just wish I didn't have to complete the same paperwork I did online when I signed in. What is the point of online forms?

The visit was very professional. I was first assisted by a physicians assistance who completed the first part of the examination, which was followed by Dr. Holy reviewing the notes and looking over one more time to ensure they had notmissed a spot. Both practitioners were thorough and they both exude professionalism. I am glad to have found a dermatologist that I feel comfortable and have already recommended to my family.

Have never been to a dermotoligist before, so I am not sure how she compares. I went in for a skin cancer check up...I guess I thought it would be more thorough...about a 5 minute look.
