Dr. Sodern was professional, well informed and took time to answer any questions. His staff was inconsistent in taking a moment to welcome patient and seemed distracted from patients. This took away from the doctor's excellent attention.He needs to know that if a patient walks in and is acknowledged, it sets the tone for the office and possibly the whole visit.

I have Rosacea and have been seen by two other Dermatologists in the past. Although I had been given Rx's to help with the redness, my previous doctors never looked at addressing the underlying issue of my inflammation. Dr. Soden immediatelyknew what I needed and came up with a plan to address everything. Two weeks after starting my prescribed treatment I saw a big improvement. Two months after that, my face was just about flawless. Dr. Soden listened to my concerns and explained how my treatment would work and what the next steps after that would be. Very pleased!

Apparently there was an issue with my ZocDoc appointment. While I received a confirmation notice, email reminder and a text message reminder, when I arrived do my appointment the staff didn't have a record of my appointment. Thankfully, thestaff worked to get my in anyway. It took a bit longer due to the ZocDoc issue. Dr. Cylburn Soden, Jr. was very professional. Explained in detail my condition and the treatment options. He even took the time to email me on the spot a site that further detailed the condition. He asked several questions ans answered all of my questions as well. He used a tablet to send a prescription directly to my pharmacy and went over the directions for applying the prescription. The office is very clean and comfortable. The examining room was also very clean and comfortable. The office location has plenty of parking. This was my first visit and minus the hiccup with ZocDoc, the visit went very well and I would recommend Dr. Cylburn Soden, Jr.
