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 andtakes 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 fileso 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.

Dr. Charles and his team are simply wonderful! They are extremely professional, diligent and caring - especially his assistant, Jessica. She went out of her way to help me with a prescription issue and got it resolved right away. The officeis very new, calming, spotless, and I didn't have to wait at all to be seen by Dr.Charles, who was very down to earth, kind and efficient. You can tell they truly care about their patients and providing the best customer service possible; which are very important to me. Two thumbs up!

Dr. Charles was very helpful. I found his whole staff to be courteous and professional.
