Dr. Morales is awesome! I normally wouldn't describe a doctor appointment as fun, but Dr. Morales has an excellent sense of humor and it is actually an enjoyable experience visiting with her. She is thorough and explains procedures clearly and in layman's terms. I can't recommend her enough!

Loved her straight forward manner. Dr. Morales' demeanor made my daughter and I very comfortable. We like that she favored the conservative approach toward treating my daughter's relatively minor acne, unlike the straight-to-antibioticsand even Accutane suggested by our "1st opinion" dermatologist. (He said, "Topical treatments don't work." and did not suggest any options.)

I love Dr. Morales! I have seen many dermatologists over the past 18 years and none have I liked better than Dr. Morales. She is personable and knowledgeable and is focused on the health of my skin (not just the lookof it!). I have had basal cell carcinoma 4 times and it is very difficult to find a dermatologist who is concerned with anything more than wrinkles and pimples. I chose to come to the Bay Area to have my skin exams with Dr. Morales even though I live 3 hours away. She is that good,

I went to see the doctor for a Rash which was growing. She was pleasant to talk to and good listener. I explained her my rash and I was told it was because of my dry skin. I was not happywith the prescription as I was told to apply 2 ointments (one of them Steroid) for 2 weeks. Instead of the ointments, I just applied a very very rich lotion on that rash for 5 days and it has already gone down 70%. I was not comfortable using such strong medicines for something which could be treated naturally,

She is highly professional, but more than that, she is just fun. I know- "fun" is typically not the adjective associated with dermatology, but I bet her patients know what I'm talking about.

It felt like I was in a very expensive spa, not a medical facility! The doctor seemed to be in overdrive, doing everything very quickly. She even took a biopsy of the wrong thing! She never confirmed which part of theskin I was concerned with and did the procedure without confirming the accuracy. I am very disappointed with this whole experience.

The doctor was very friendly and nice but seemed like she was in a rush. I felt uncomfortable asking more questions. The receptionist I dealt with was irritable and impatient even though there was no line and I had prepared the papers for the appointment before hand.

I’ve wanted to get some moles frozen off for some time now. I finally made an appointment and I was pleasantly surprised by the attention I received. I was informed that some of the moles that were causing me trouble/concern wereactually sunspots, albeit a couple were in places “where the sun don’t shine”! LOL Dr. Morales was very professional but not ridged. She was very respectful, made me feel comfortable from the get-go and was easy to talk to. Dr. Morales was genuinely interested in my concerns and I did not feel rushed at all. I have not experienced this kind of medical attention in a long time. I look forward to consulting with her again, with medical concerns in the realm of her expertise, and would highly recommend Dr. Morales.

Staff was excellent! Only complaint wait for appt. Waited over 30 minutes. Once I got into the room it wasn't bad. Maybe they should space out appts more than 10 mins. Oh and they forgot to give me my free samplesthat the Dr. promised me to try out. Other than that everything was great. Still rate 5 stars!
