He's a good doctor and explains everything the wait time for me was twenty minutes before he came in so that a minus but the biggest issue is the pharmacy he makes you use to get the medication from it sucks your dealing with people who can't transfer the phone to the right location or take your information.

I was seen by the wrong doctor. I was supposed to see Carlos Charles and instead had a female doctor. She was nice but she is not the doctor I was supposed to see

Friendly, efficient, though the wait time was a little long I'll attribute it to it being my first time visiting.

I thought he was professional, courteous and personable. He showed concern for my problem and quickly acted on addressing it. I left happy.
Smart and very helping attitude
my conflict was my time i had to wait in the office i felt 45min wait was unacceptable. I can accept 15min but 45min unacceptable. If i was late 45mins i would probably be told to rescheduled
Ya he visitado tres medicos y me dieron referencia para verlo a el y hizo lo mismo que hicieron los dos anteriores. Me dio una cremita y ya. Pense que me harian el estudio indicado para determinar la raiz de mi condicion actual. Y sigo con la misma alergia.
Really nice and seemed caring.
Didn't see a Dr carlos. It was a lady Dr who was not all that very professional and very un relatable. Did not answer all my questions.
Dr. Charles was very nice and helpful.
The doctor was nice & the staff very friendly. The wait time was appropriate, not a long wait at all.
Great dermatologist! Greatly improved my skin within a couple of months. Highly recommend!
Carlos was actually not the one who saw me, one of his colleagues did. It was fine. They made me wait a while but his colleague was nice, quick, and personable.
Excelente medico muy buena orientacion de mi caso
He was great. Professional and courteous
The doctor himself was simply amazing very professional and patient friendly. He made me feel confident that I wouldn't have to suffer anymore and I appreciate that
I would see this doctor again I really liked him, however I waited over an hour to see him and the room was not very clean. The staff was friendly and the doctor was great but I wish they would clean the exam rooms as it makes a bad impression.
Upon arriving on time I don't wait more than 20 minutes. Dr. Charles has a warm Presence and cares to know about your life style. He's extremely pleasant and informative, listening to your concerns and answering your questions. Definitely will see him again!
For a first visit, I left satisfied with his evaluation of my medical issue. He was friendly and professional and listened to my concerns. I will see him again and then better able to evaluate. The wait to see him was, however, unreasonably long. He did apologize though, which was appreciated.
Great Doctor.Just wish the wait time was shorter
He was very knowledgeable and eager to help me with my issues. The rooms look like they need some upgrading though. I will definitely return.

Pretty intelligent doctor
My visit was very informative, and Dr. Charles solved all of my skin issues that I was experiencing at the time of my appointment.
The office is pretty average, nothing great nothing horrible with slightly dated equipment. For my needs it was fine but I was only getting a basic cancer screening. Dr. Charles is very professional and I would recommend him based on my experience.
Dr. Charles was really nice and seems to care about about my condition. He answered any questions I had and made me feel welcome. The office wait was longer than expected. My appointment was for 2:30 and I didn't get seen for about an hour.
The visit was great! He was very informative and helpful.
Very helpful understanding and nice!!!!
It was good. It was fast but he listened to everything i had to say. He is very nice. He explained well what he was prescribing me and made sure i understood. I would recommend!
Arrived 30 minutes early for my appointment but ended up seeing the doctor almost 2 hours later. The long wait was a bit frustrating but Dr. Charles more than made up for it with his excellent bedside manner. I have since returned to see Dr. Charles for a follow-up appointment and I can assure you that a 2 hour wait time is an exception and not the norm.
Dr. Charles was very professional and took his time to explain things.

Overall great dermatologist. Will visit again.
Que es un excelente profesional que me ayudo en lo que yo necesitaba
A warm and helpful doctor.
He's a good doctor, he knows what he's doing. He's going to prescribe me to a medication for 6 months, he explained to me the side effects and risk very well.
I found my visit with Dr. Charles very satisfactory. I came in for a simple procedure and was done fairly quickly. He explained my condition quite well. Will give more feedback when I have my follow-up in three weeks. For now I would recommend.

Great doctor assesed and took care of my skin problem right away. I will be keeping Dr.Charles as my dermatologist. Highly reccomended.
My first time at a Dermatologist, and Dr. Charles made it a breeze. All my concerns were addressed.
He's a wonderful caring doctor
I received apt confirmations prior to the apt but waited over 2 hrs to be seen. After having to reschedule work appts to be seen the Dr was apologetic and quick with service but I still couldn't get back the time I had to sit and wait
He was able to immediately diagnose the issue and explained what the issue was. He also answered all the questions I had.
Dr. Charles was very professional and pleasant. I highly recommend Dr. Charles to everyone! However, the wait time was rather lengthy because the appointment that was made on Zoc Doc was not reflected in their system. Because of that, I was treated as a walk-in patient not someone with a 430pm appointment. I was seen by the doctor after 6pm and was finished by 630pm. I did bring this situation to the Doctor's attention.
He is a very nice doctor, he made sure I was very comfortable
Very professional , warm and caring
He is a great doc and very helpful.
Very knowledgeable, addressed my problems immediately.
He was very empathetic and knowledgeable about my condition. His soothing affection calmed my nerves down. I really appreciate his concentrated time and efforts concerning my condition. Thank you.
Dr. Charles is a phenomenal dermatologist. He's a great listener. He addressed my acne and now my skin is is beautiful. I recommend all of my friends and family to him. His assistant Marsha is great too! My experience has been fantastic.
Straight and to the point, he knew what he was looking for and correctly diagnosed me. On the road to healing but an overall good visit.
Doctor had excellent bedside manners. Very professional & took care of my priority problem & helped me with a secondary one. Recommended him to my daughter.
The stuff and tDoctor Charles were phenomenal! Keep up the good job!
Too long of a wait overall. Not happy with that. Almost feel asleep waiting for the doctor to come in the room.
I think the visit was a great & very helpful.
