Dr. Stoll was the best Dr. I could have ever asked for. He was extremely professional, but also has a great sense of humor. I’ve suffered a skin condition for a couple of months now and had 0 answers from otherdermatologists. They just kept prescribing steroids / antibiotics and told me to come back for a follow up, without trying to find the core issue. To make matters worse, they would rush me out of the exam rooms, which felt more like a spa for Botox rather than a doctors office. Dr. Stoll was my 3rd dermatologist and BY FAR the only one who made me feel like there was an answer to my problem. He did the necessary tests and examinations (that the previous doctors did not) and I finally feel relieved. I’ve recommended him to all of my friends and colleagues.

Knowledgeable, honest, high integrity. Great balance between the science and “the art” of his work. Focused on a natural look. Compassionate and helpful when I once had an adverse reaction a few years ago. Am a long term patient; I Highly recommend him.

Dr. Stoll was fine but curt and in a hurry, unless he was trying to upsell me on overpriced products I could get OTC at the drugstore. His staff was also short and dismissive and not forthcoming with billing information. Ihad a simple visit and received an RX slip, paid my co-pay, and then was invoiced 10 months later for additional services. They also added me to their marketing blasts and send regular advertisements for cosmetic procedures, which was not the purpose of my visit. If you want 10 unsolicited emails about botox and surprise bills, sure, go to this doctor. If you want someone who is attentive and not trying to upsell products to you, visit someone else.

Dr. Stoll was on time, polite and direct. I can't say if he correctly diagnosed my issue as it is too soon to tell, but I liked the fact that he told me his reasoning. He also took an appropriate approachtowards medication, offering a couple of options and suggesting that I try the over-the-counter (less burdensome) option first, then move on to prescription medications if that failed. Seems like a good guy, and a good doctor.

I had to wait for about 30 minutes to see the doctor. During that time I was told to fill out a packet of forms (even though I had pre-filled out very similar forms the night before on zoc.doc). When Imet with the doctor, he was very kind and straight to the point. He asked a few questions during examination to find out more. The visit lasted no longer than 10 minutes. He was professional with a calm demeanor and I would recommend him.

I didn't enjoy my visit with Dr Stoll. I'm unsure if I didn't see the correct person about my dermalogical concerns but I expected someone who would look closely at my skin perhaps with a ultra violet light / magnifying glass.He took two minutes to assess me. Wasn't sure what was wrong (a consistent sore above my lip) but offered to freeze it off and thought that would do the job. When I declined and asked for some cream he went and found me some nutrogena dry skin sample cream that I could find at the drug store?!? He did sort out a milia I had on my cheek quickly but overall his attention to detail was about 1 star.
