Patient reviews for Dr. Carlos Charles
Very understanding person.
Very professional & knowledgeable!
He was quick, efficient and made me feel comfortable
I had a good experience
He was very nice and courteous.
Dr. Charles is an excellent dermatologist. He is knowledgeable, professional, and caring. I’m usually in and out within 30 minutes. He has been treating me for almost a year for to some hair loss due to a serious illness. And my hair has grown tremendously. I’m very pleased with his service.
There are so few dermatologists of color that it’s worth coming to this office for that comfort and specialty. Fairly routine easy check up so not sure how the office would do with more serious skin conditions but everyone was nice there
My results were better than I expected and I am very grateful for that!
So I've seen Dr. Charles for quite a while--not especially thrilling--he's very nice and so is his staff but that's about it. My skin hasn't gotten better--each time I brought up a concern he seemed pretty nonchalant and about it. He's prescribed me number of creams that were expensive and mostly just "ok". Also beware they charge your card WITHOUT informing of you of any balance due--so be sure to continue to follow up with them if you want to be sure you won't be charged out of no where. Definitely not worth the price.
The visit was great. He is very personable and his knowledge was informative, especially for my first time in many years going to a dermatologist. Just not a big fan of other people in the room when I’m getting a check up. My anxiety level was on a 7 and what made it worse I started stress sweating. Lol
I was greeted warmly by the front desk staff (who already had my forms from zocdoc; I just needed to sign them), and seen almost immediately by Dr. Charles. Dr. Charles is very professional, yet friendly, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
Very kind doctor. Very knowledgeable and realistic about my issues and what he can provide for me.
Very good thank you
Very hospitable staff and excellent Doctor!
Waiting time was long, seemed like overbooked. He was friendly but didn't explain about my concern and was a bit rush. Staff was great, but won't return and don't recommend.
Front desk was great and Dr. Charles was very helpful in explaining everything. luckily it was just an annual check but id highly recommend
Doctor Carlos was gentle. He listened to all of my concerns and did a thorough checkup. All the staff members were very nice and kind. I was seen promptly at the time of appointment, almost no waiting time at all.
Great doctor. I will definitely recommend it to anyone I know.
Had a wonderful visit. Doctor was very comforting and communicative. I have some fears when it comes to anything related to needles and blades (for a biopsy) and he made me as comfortable as was possible. Highly recommend.
Dr. Carlos Charles is truly a wonderful doctor. My visits are always a delight. His dedicated staff treats you like family! Dr. Charles really is invested in helping me reach my goals. Please schedule a visit. Get started on your journey to healthy skin!
Professional, courteous staff. The doctor was fantastic. He was thorough and detailed when doing the examination and giving information.
I waited because I arrived earlier than my appt, it seemed as if everyone was called in at their appt time. Office is very clean, the staff is very professional and courteous. This was a first time visit, and I will definitely be back. Dr. Charles has good bedside manner and explains everything clearly.
Dr. Carlos Charles is an incredible asset in his field! I love reading his articles and following his practice on Instagram. Every visit is like being with family. The staff is amazing and treats you like royalty. Everyone is personable, humble, kind, and professional. My journey to healthy and clear skin is gratifying. I feel blessed after every visit!!
Dr. Carlos put me at ease immediately. He addressed my concerns with understanding and helped me feel better about the issues I have been experiencing. Would highly recommend this office. Very clean and welcoming.
Great service, wonderful staff.
Dr. Charles has been my doctor for the past 10 years and his service has always been amazing!
His staff are very kind and helpful and he’s great.
He is amazing! But had to wait 30 min with the gown on. The nurse left me and he took very long to come
Dr. Charles and physicians assistant, Jessica were so sweet and informative. They made me feel heard, and comfortable even with an uncomfortable allergic reaction. Would highly recommend to everyone!
Dr. Charles is great; I've been seeing him for almost 10 years! He's personal, kind and has a great bedside manner. Definitely recommend him to other patients.
He was professional, friendly, informative and reassuring. I highly recommend him. I've been going to him for years.
Great Dr, very thorough. Would not go back due to horrible front desk interactions, and hard to schedule Drs.
Dr. Charles is very professional and warm. He explains the technical language and has genuine concern for the patient's well being. I would recommend him to anyone who wanted caring and extremely qualified dermatologist.
Honest, knowledgeable, gentle and caring. Not trying to sell anything. Not out to make a buck, just an honest living as a doctor. This is someone I can trust and will always go back to.
He is the best!!
Always impressed with this doctor and the entire office. Great staff, great treatment, always feel well taken care of and like they genuinely care.
Excellent communication the staff os like no other doctor office I've been to and Dr. Charles is super sweet and very professional wouldn't go any where else I went for laser hair removal and not one ingrown or burn its worth every penny!
I really like this doctor because he fixes all my skin issues without trying to push products on me - (he does not try selling all sorts of expensive creams and things I don't really need). He is sincere, kind and takes his time explaining ,my skincare plan. I also like that he is not a pill pusher like other dermatologist I have been to, where all they did was prescribe pills for acne that did not work.
Unfortunately, this doctor is being reviewed on his front desk staff as well as himself. The front desk usually puts me in a bad mood when I visit this office. Today I was asked to put my credit card on file so they could automatically charge it if my insurance did not pay. My insurance has always paid, but it is their new policy. I was told if I did not submit he would not see me. I told the man at the desk this was absurd. All I have to do is tell my credit card company to deny their charge or not to allow them to charge at all. He said that was my choice. If I could have waited to see another doctor I would have left. The message their policy sent to me was they do not trust their patients and money is foremost before care given at that facility. The bean counter who decided this was a good idea truly is not thinking that making your patients feel welcome is the first step in good customer service. My insurance plan has hundreds of dermatologists to choose from. If I am going to be treated like a deadbeat, why should I go to this one? With the number of doctors available all he has to offer is customer service. As for the doctor, he's acceptable but not personable. It seems he is not accustomed to dealing with intelligent people who have done their homework and want to be part of their healthcare. It seems like he is accustomed to standing on the "doctor pedestal" being the all-knowing entity. That was my impression. That doesn't work for me. I will be looking for a new office.
Great doctor ,very helpful , helped with all of my concerns.
Friendly, professional, thorough.
My visit was very pleasant. The appointment seemed a bit rushed, but it was a busy day, so I understand. Overall great experience.
Knows his stuff
He is amazing. He understands the needs of darker skin tones and his bedside manner is so comforting and kind.
The entire process was professional, courteous and also very pleasant. All the admin staff and Dr Charles himself are very nice. The office is also beautiful, simple and not as sterile as most.
He is very courteous and attentive. The visit didn't seem rushed and he appears be very knowledgeable and realistic when discussing treatment options
I’ve had 3 scheduled appointments with Carlos Charles to treat my mild psoriasis. The first two with pretty long wait times and the last one I was told the doctor was going home for the day and would be unable to see me. Needless to say, I still seeking treatment for my mild psoriasis.
The staff in Dr Charles office are all kind, considerate and very patient. Many times you will run into arrogence in other settings but not at all with this staff. I highly recommend them!!!
