Dr. Soden was very friendly and professional. He listened to everything I had to say and was understanding of all my concerns. He was straightforward in all of his answers while being very thorough.

So far, so good.
Great experience! Dr. Soden Jr. immediately knew what the issue was, showed me photos of other cases, explained it and how we progress forward. Awesome doctor!
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, the staff 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.
Dr Soden was professional, informed, and informative. Very pleased.
Dr. Soden Jr is wonderful--really knows what he's doing and has excellent bedside manner. I've been to see him multiple times now and each time is a pleasant experience.
Dr. Snowden is a very professional Doctor and talks you through the entire process. He's the best by far and highly recommended.
Dr. is knowledgeable about my scalp problem and prescribed appropriate medication. He listened intently to my description of problem and was able to give diagnosis without seeing previous doctors' notes. Dr. Soden, Jr., will be my new dermatologist.
The visit with Dr. Soden Jr.was pleasant. He was knowleadgable. He quickly diagnosed my skin problem. I thought I would need lab test run, but I guess it wasn't necessary.
Super friendly staff, and I was seen within 10 minutes of my appointment time.
Very handsome, informative and nice. His receptionist were very nice as well.
He was very attentive and listened well. He also presented himself to be knowledgeable and offered me insight to the purpose of my visit. I also appreciated the up front cost analysis of what my treatment will cost and options that were available to save money.
Office is very clean; Staff is very friendly. Service is excellent. I would recommend this office to anyone.
I learned a lot about some issues I've been having. The doctor have me clarity.
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 immediately knew 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!
My visit with Dr. Soden, Jr. was satisfactory and I will continue to go to him should there be a need for dermatology services.
I am not happy with the staff associated there. They were so rude in answering and also very rude in asking any information.
Dr. Soden has excellent bedside manners. He is wonderful at listening to ALL your concerns and recommending options. He is pleasant, and professional and extremely patient. I did not feel rushed; got all my questions answered and I was out in a timely fashion. He also has a great staff. Everyone was pleasant and professional.
Dr. Soden Jr. is smart, professional, and kind. Best doctor I have had in many years.
Very personable and professional. He knew my issue and gave me great advice.
This is my first time seeing him. Very impress. Now let see if what he recommend works .
I think Dr. Soden is the best! He is very pleasant, well spoken in terms of making sure you understand exactly what your diagnosis is and how to treat and resolve it.He takes the time to address all of your concerns so you are clear as what you need to do. I would recommend him to family and friends. I am so happy to have a Dr. that is as concerned as the patient and able to explain so that you know and understand every detail.
Just great as always
He immediately identified the issue and knew what to prescribe. Looking forward to follow up.
Very professional and personable. Takes time to get to know his clients. Would definitely continue to see.
Dr. Soden Jr is very nice and helpful. I was comfortable discussing my issues with him and he tended to them immediately. I will definitely be returning.
Dr. Soden Jr.was very kind, he listened to everything I was concerned about and then took the time to explain his plan and gave me options about my treatment. Not once did he seem rushed to get to the next patient. This was quite refreshing! I would recommend him if you are looking for a compassionate Doctor that allows you the time to explain your concerns.
It was great! We caught up a little and I asked a bunch of a questions, which he answered completely. He is very knowledgeable and personable. I am actually scheduling an appointment for my fiance to have an appointment with him. My mom is also making an appointment as well.
Dr. Soden Jr. is a great addition to the office. He is attentive, knowledgeable and a true professional. He aims to meet your needs by thoroughly examing your skin problem and offering several optional solutions, he really seems to genuinely care about your overall well being and providing top-notch customer satisfaction.
Always a pleasant experience
Always a pleasant experience
everything was fine. the doctor spoke very low and very fast even once i notified him that I had a hearing loss and wore aids. very clean, professional and thorough - bedside manner was pleasant enough but seemed like he wanted to rush in order to get to the next patient, but again that may just be my perception. Dr. Soden was very technologically advanced in the ways of his business management. He addressed the issues immediately. That is why we went. So overall I would give a 4 out of 5 (no one is ever perfect) I would definitely recommend his office.
Awesome staff with top notch service from staff. The use of current technology is awesome!
Very clean office and professional staff. Doctor was attentive to my situation and had a clear path of action.
It was a quick, pleasant, professional visit.
Overall excellent experience, usual small delay in the waiting room however staff and dr were great.
Great Office. The staff was friendly and efficient. Dr. Soden was prompt, sympathetic, and very efficient. I was seen and taken care, and out of the office within 20 minutes! I have already recommended the office to friends.
Dr. Soden was compassionate. The place where my skin problem was located was a sensitive place for me. He didn't make me feel embarassed. He assessed the problem and offered a solution. The follow up appointment was quick and easy. I enjoyed this experience.
He was very kind and explained everything
Dr. Soden, Jr., is very responsive to patients, and takes the time to explain things. He always looks for a solution that works. My previous dermatologist was insulting about my cosmetic concerns and refused to do anything, but Dr. Soden is respectful of any concerns. You will not find a better doctor anywhere.
Wait itime is always long!
He was a caring person, explained everything he was going to do, and answered all my questions. He is very smart and knowledgeable.
Dr. Soden, was very friendly and professional.
Great doctor and very nice !
I enjoy seeing Dr. Soden. My wait was longer than usual because my chart got mixed up with another patient and they took my appointment time. The staff apologized profusely. Luckily I was able to respond to emails on my phone so it was not too much of an inconvenience. I am normally seen within 5-10 minutes.
I have been struggling with bad skin for years. Cystic acne, dry skin, dark marks, you name it. I have been going to Dr. Soden, Jr for about 2 months now and I have had amazing results, My skin is clear no more cystic acne and my dark spots are finally clearing up. Looking at the before and after pictures is just incredile, and I finally feel comfortable going out without wearing make up, and concealers. Dr. Soden, Jr is awesome he answered my many questions, and put me on a daily and nightly regiment which I have been following to the T. I will be going back to get a chemical peel in July and I cant wait. His front desk staff is amazing very personable and friendly.
Was not very good as Doctor never physically examined me. As a skin Doctor, I would think that physical exam of a patient with a skin disorder should be the norm.
I didn't mind the wait much becase the staff were kind and helpful. We saw a medical intern first, and he was great. He listened to us carefully, and so did Dr. Soden. Best dermatologist I have ever been to. He seems current on new treatments and technology.
Great personality. He makes me feel at home.
He immediately took care of my issue!
Being a first time patient and a virgin when it comes to dermatology, Dr. Soden, Jr. and his staff made my visit extremely pleasant. Dr. Soden, Jr. was very personable, punctual and thorough in his evaluation. He gave me comprehensive information regarding a cyst on my scalp to assist me in making the most appropriate decision. I highly recommend his expert advice; he now has a patient for life.
I thought my visit was wonderful, i would highly recommend him to my friends and family!
Great service...quick and painless. Highly recommend!
I was seen exactly at my appointment time and Dr. Soden dealt with all my issues and explained the medications that he was prescribing very clearly.
He was very knowledgeable, quit prognosis and made great suggestions for the future
I was very pleased. I felt he actually took the time to evaluate all of the problems I expressed to him and we came up with a specific regime for me. Previous dermatologists just gave me their regime and blamed me for why my skin wasn't clearing up when her regime just wasn't good for me.
Dr soden s a woderful guy. When i sat in the consultation room and he waled in i thought he was a health care technician tryin to take vitals. When he introduce himself, in a polit an caring manner as the doctor, i was like wao. He is very knowlegeable, he took time to explaine to me my condition with camera pictures, discuss treatment options, listen to me, and gave me the best advice i could ever immagine. H is a dynamic man with a professional sense f responsibility and i gues is best in what he is doing. I started he therapy he prescribed and men i feel great. no itches, and i will recommend him to any one with dematological issues
Very nice and addressed all my concerns.
Got right to the problem gave a diagnosis quickly. Praying this is the answer.
The wait time was long but the staff was very professional and Dr. Soden Jr. Is very knowledgable.
Very professional and straight to the point. Explains things clearly and doesnt give you the run around. Unlike other derms i've been too, he's willing to explore all your options immediately and doesnt string you along. The office staff was kind of slow, but they may have just been busy.
Dr. Soden demonstrated care and concern. He made his diagnosis in a way that demonstrated true professional knowledge, i.e. he articulated it very well. I never felt as if Dr. Soden was in a rush or that I was being rushed despite the fact their practice was quite busy with other patients. The staff was cordial and polite. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Soden, a true asset to the profession.
Great, very informative and personable!
Dr Soden talked really fast, so it was a bit hard to understand him. Office staff was very slow to respond to questions over email, ultimately responding to one of my messages after my appointment was over, and in all caps so it seemed like they were shouting at me. Otherwise, good experience, nice office, and I like that the majority of the paperwork can be done on ZocDoc ahead of time.
Extremely professional and thorough!
Seem to have a great deal of knowledge. To soon to voice our opinion. Wait time was extremely to long, we arrived 30 minutes before our appointment and had to wait one and a half before seen the doctor. That not good.
Dr Soden Jr. Is very professional and listens which is hard to come by with most doctors. He listened to all my concerns and was very thorough with the exam. I would highly recommend this dermatologist.
Dr. Soden listens to my concerns and addresses my issues professionally and with kindness.
Punctual, sympathetic, and very very helpful!
It was fine. Staff was professional
It was my first visit and Dr. Soden was able to diagnosed quite a list of things I came to him with for diagnosis--literally a notebook list. He was able to name them and talk in depth about what it was, why it was and how to treat it. I could not be more pleased. And if you think, "A doctor should know these things, right?" During the past years, many doctors saw me and not one could name it, or it's cause. I'll be returning and spreading the word...but not my skin issues. Now they have the proper medication.
I like Dr. Soden, Jr. Nice young man and seems to be very knowledgeable about my problem. I'm glad I choose him.
Dr. Soden was very personable and knowledgeable. He took the time to listen and make recommendations based on his observations and my input. He answered all my questions with honesty and care.
It's a very busy office and I was a new patient, but I was given all of the time and attention by the doctor that I needed. The doctor listens, makes suggestions, and doesn't push new and expensive therapies for the first step. I was very pleased with today's visit. Also of note -- I made the appointment and sent my paperwork through ZocDoc, and the doctor's office had everything in order when I walked into the waiting room. ZocDoc even sent text messages to remind me of the appointment.
The office staff were professional and helpful. The Dr. was attentive and considerate. I would definitely recommend Dr. Soden, Jr. to anyone.
Dr. Cylburn Soden, Jr., MD spent the time to really listen to me. He pulled up a chair infront of me and we talked like colleagues and discussed my concerns at length. His bedside manner was like no other Dermatologist that I've ever met. I felt so comfortable with him and his judgment! I will always see him from now!
He was very curious and informative. He took as long as I needed. He accommodated me, he took care of numerous issues in one visit so I'd only have to pay one copay.
Dr Soden is so awesome. I'm sad that I moved away and I won't be able to see him! He really knows what he is doing!
I loved that he took the time to explain my issues.
Both the doctor and the staff were very professional and super attentive. Thanks so much for a great visit.
Pleasant for Drs office -seems to take time with patients to explain things and treatment options.
Very excellent. Makes me feel comfortable and have hope that my acne will be gone.
A wonderful doctor who is personable and intelligent.
He is very knowledgable and gives you medical information with a professional and yet easy to understand approach.
We saw Dr Soden as an efficient professional with nice personal approach, as well his associated staff.
Very professional, very knowledgeable, and since I'm a tech geek, I like that he was using a hardened tablet and a voice connection to his office.
He was very personable, detailed, and professional. You truly get a sense that he cares about his patients!
This was my first dermatology visit and I wasn't sure what to expect. Dr. Soden and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Soden uses recent technology which is great as well. I would definitely return and suggest others visit as well.
He is incredibly attentive to any concerns I had and has an incredible beside manner.
Friendly and knowledgeable. Treated issue right away and it was quick and painless!
Its a very efficient office. I rarely have any wait time. Dr. Soden is personable, listens and knows his stuff. My skin issues are clearing up nicely.
Nice guy, but resulted immediately to prescribing medication as opposed to asking about diet, birth control etc. which I thought would potentially tackle the cause of acne.
He makes you feel very comfortable and makes sure he listens to all that you want to say. Was worth the wait. Impressed!
My visit with Soden was excellent, I highly recommend..
Dr. Soden was great. Very personable and knowledgeable which I can appreciate.
Very nice, took time to explain my daughters and I skin condition and him recommend treatment.
Very good! Dr. Soden took his time to explain my daughters and I skin condition and his recommend condition.
the visit was great and friendly
He explained everything to me precisely. Dr.Soden Sr and Jr are great doctors!
He's very caring about his patients and he had a new game plan ready to tackle my acne when he got in to see me. Quick and efficient. Always a great visit!
Awesome! The staff and Dr. were all brisk, efficient, and polite. Dr. Soden knew exactly what was going on with my dermatitis and my skin is showing improvement after only one day of treatment. He was able to explain what was happening to me in terms I could understand and laid my fears to rest. Would see again.
Very nice doc. Gave good info and didn't rush through
was very pleased will recommend him again he was very professional and explained everything
Calm and attentive to the patient
It was a pleasant and assuring feeling that my condition was addressed properly.
My visit ok
Very professional and friendly. Service was prompt. Dr. Soden is very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable about what I was there for. Good experience overall.
He was so professional as always. He took his time explaining my condition and treatment, and answered my questions clearly. He is never in a rush, that is comforting and reassures that he cares for his patients.
good first visit. knowledgeable and patient
Dr. Soden was very informative and very professional. The items that I needed addressed were done quick and efficiently.
Dr. Soden Jr. was very thorough and really easy to talk to. He did not rush anything, explained all my options and tailored a treatment for what was right for me. I would recommend to anyone.
He was very informative about my situation. I was given options for treatment which was very nice.
Really nice doctor. Would definitely recommend him
This was my first visit to this office and I found that the staff was very pleasant and professional. The doctor was compassionate and understanding. He was very knowledgeable about my complaints. I highly recommend this office.
He was great. Really good about explaining everything and effective at starting treatment as soon as possible.
Very informative and professional. Front desk staff was friendly. I would refer anyone to Dr. Soden.
The office was seemingly very organized. Intake was quick. I only waited 5mins in the waiting room and another 5 mins in a treatment room before seeing the doctor. Dr. Soden was professional & easy to talk to. My prescriptions were called into CVS before I returned to the front desk to schedule my follow-up appointment. I appreciate that they seem to value their patients' time.
It was good. I was in a hurry and the office staff was very accommodating
Awesome experience. Would highly recommend him
Nice Doctor. Friendly and knowledgeable
Very personable and to the point.
Great visit. Speedy service, modern equipment and beautiful office. The only thing I would change is the front desk staff could be a little friendlier to each other.
I think Dr. Soden Jr. is a excellent Doctor. He is a very good listerner, which is very important to understand a patients needs. He also compromised with me understanding what I needed to heal. Thank God there are some good people in this not completely civilized world.
Excellent service! Good use of technology! Precise! Well ran ship :)
I really enjoyed the Doctor, very informative took his time with me will see again. I tookmy time and filled out the forms online only to have to fill them out again, no so good. Waste of my time and staff time looking for missing paper work.
Professional and courteous.
My appointment was nearly three weeks ago and I still don't have a prescription they recommended. I have been calling between the office, my insurance company, and my pharmacy on a wild goose chase for a mixing fax that was claimed to have been sent three times from my pharmacist but they claim to have never received it. I got my hands on a copy of the fax to call them and relay any information they needed from it over the phone only to have been told that my prescription was sent to another pharmacy without my knowledge or permission. The whopping two samples they gave me did not last in the interim. I was happy with my initial visit and have a follow up with them in a few weeks but I should not have to chase around this prescription like this. It has been over two weeks and this is unacceptable. I an open to their remedy of the situation but am less than pleased with this run around!
Very pleased with my visit with Dr Soden. These days, it seems every doctor is in such a hurry to move on to the next patient. Dr Soden took the time to answer questions, and to ask many of his own, I felt like he was genuinely interested in helping me, rather than maximizing the number of billable patients per day.
Excellent! Skin is looking great!
Waited for a bit, but I found out why! Dr. Soden is very through. This was my first visit, but I had a biopsy on two spots right then and there. No nonsense and very polite. I see now how he has all good reviews. Very efficient.
He is knowledgeable and was able to address my concern in a term I can understand.
I enjoy my visits with Dr.Soden, everyone is professional, prompt and courteous.
i was very pleased with my visit with Dr.SODEN,Jr.I was extremely impressed by his vast knowledge of my condition and the dermatology field.
First visit and received immediate help and treatment. Follow up appointment made after visit.
He was very polite and professional. I always look for a doctor that listens with attention and I got that with him. He took his time during the evalution and answered all my questions. He was great!
Absolutely pleasing. I am very happy with the explanation of my condition and the treatments discussed with the Dr!!
I was very pleased with my visit and my treatment plan. Dr. Soden was thorough, clear and pleasant. I was checked in immediatley, called very shortyly after arriving and the doctor came in right after my vital signs were taken. I love effecient, customer focused service and that's what I received.
Dr Soden was very knowledgable and professional during the entire visit. As a first time patient I felt very comfortable that he would be able to find a solution to my skin care issues.
I like the whole session except the wait time. It might be the same all the time. I would definitely recommend this doc
Great....will be going back.
Really nice doctor! I was an hour early to my appt and was seen right away
This was my first time being seen by a Dermatologist and they made this the most painless appointment EVER!! Dr. Cylburn Soden, Jr. was extremely knowledgeable, polite, professional and to the point. I arrived at my appointment early and got right in. The staff was amazingly helpful. I am looking forward to great results.
Excellent appointment. Would definitely recommend.
It was excellent very knowledgeable and explained all procedures with courteousness..very polite and ready to answer any question...very pleasurable visit with the Doctor and his staff.
Very nice & professional..courtesy all around..very knowledgeable & paid attention to details. .even asked was I doing ok and any further questions at the end..looking forward to 2nd visit. .thanks ZocDoc
Very professional and personable.
Very professional with outstanding customer service from the front desk
Very Good, and on time.
I appreciated the time he took to explain to me the medications and how to take them and what they specifically did. I feel like I know what is going on with my treatment, I feel that he is very knowledgeable, and I got the distinct impression that he cares about the success of my treatment. He's more than I expected from a dermatologist - I thought he'd look at my skin quickly, scribble some stuff down and pass me off with a prescription to the nurse. Not at all. He also took notes and pictures of my skin on his tablet, and I liked the use of technology on the spot to improve the quality of my visit. Fabulous doctor!
The visit went really well and all of my questions were answered. There was an extremely long wait time.
He was very knowledgable and helpful in helping with my skin needs. His recommendations and plan of action were successful in my situation.
Everything was great except for the excessive wait
Dr. Soden explained all of my concerns and skin problems. I was pleased with his service. Dr. Soden was pleasant and very easy to talk with about my concerns. Yvonne B. France
great! he took time to explain everything.
Very nice, explained everything thoroughly, seems very knowledgeable in his field.
He is just amazing. I fell so good when I got out of there.
Dr. Soden explained everything well. He adressed my concerns & I would highly recommend him to others.
Great dermatologist. Addresses questions and concerns.
He was thorough in explaining my treatment plan. He even pulled up a chair to explain each step of the treatment plan, my medications, and what side effects to look out for. I was most impressed that he took pictures of my skin to tract the progress. I am a health professional myself, which is usually not something I disclose right away, particularly to ensure that things are being explained to me correctly. He has excellent bedside manner and I am hopeful about my treatment plan and would recommend him to friends
Dr. Sodden was extremely professional but also very personable, so it was very easy to talk him with about my particular issue. The staff was also wonderful. I highly recommend going to this practice.
I was SO-O-O-O pleased with is practice. My first “pleasing” was when I read the credentials of Dr. Soden Jr on the website. My second “pleasing” was when I received the appointment confirmation via email. My third “pleasing” was when I was able to complete the Registration Forms in the PDF format!!!!! (great!!!!). Fourth -- the lovely state-of-the-art facility (just as you said). Fifth - location accessibility. Sixth - great, personable, professional staff. Seventh - The knowledgeable doctor -- professional, insightful and wise -- and cute (excuse me Mrs. Soden Jr. -- I am 77 years old and you will get a chance to say things like that when you are my age). Eighth-- orderly checkout procedure.
I thought he was awesome. His office staff could have been way more personable.
Overall it was good
My first appointment and I had a great experience.
he was ok but he forgot to call in my daughters prescritption but it was taken care of.
Dr. Soden was very professional during my visit. He was able to diagnose the issue quite quickly and I finally was able to have some piece of mind. I would recommend him and would go back should I have another issue in the future.
It was a great experience. They deal with me in a good way.
I found Dr. Soden to be very helpful and sincere. Very happy that I met with him!
Great doctor! Very intelligent, explains his diagnosis and procedures thoroughly. Was friendly and made me feel comfortable.
Very nice understand professional doctor .
