Verified Patient Reviews
I wish the doctor's office read the notes on why I was reached out to them before accepting my appointment. I was very clear in why I was going there, waited for weeks for the appointment only to hear that it's not something she's familiar with and I need to see another doctor who has a month long waiting list. I would have appreciated the office or her taking a minute to look at my notes and redirecting me so I didn't have to take off of work for this appointment. This was a complete waste of time.
It was SO above and beyond the previous dermatologist I had been seeing. She is so very pleasant, relatable, comforting and easy to be a patient with.
Dr. Layton was knowledgeable about my condition and prescribed the necessary treatment. I enjoyed meeting with her and her bedside manner. She did not seemed rushed, but I felt like she took her time with me. Will def go back again.
Very professional without being stuffy. She takes her time and does a thorough exam. I have already recommended her to friends.
Very thorough, excellent doctor.
Dr. Layton was great !! Professional and caring!
Incredibly patient and thorough - great physician.
I had to wait 10 minutes, but that's not bad for a doctor's office. Dr. Layton took biopsy of all the areas that I complained about. I like this scientific approach as opposed to just trying different treatments. One suggestion, is better way of staying in touch online.
I was very impressed with her expertise and procedures. I would definitely recommend her. I did not know her beforehand so was very happy.
Dr Layton was great! She had great bedside manner and she was smart and knowledgable and made me feel very comfortable. Her pricing is affordable but she provides impeccable service. Her office also took my insurance which is a big deal for good derms! I'll definitely come back to her again.
They were amazing!
Great bedside manner and great support team too.
All around good visit, however 40 minute wait time really hurt the experience.
I like Dr. Layton, she's very professional and personable, and there's no question that she's an expert. She has so much information on the issues I went to see her for, just top-of-mind - she's amazing.
Dr Layton, was quick and thorough but didn't make me feel like she was rushing to get in and out. I'll definitely be going back to their office.
Did a follow up appointment with Dr. Layton, who was as kind as she was on my first visit. Word of advice to those who come here: the wait time has been an hour or more both times I've been here.
Dr. Layton was very friendly and efficient during my visit. She took a culture for a lab test from a problem area and worked out various options for what might be afflicting me. I feel much better having seen her.
Pleasant and helpful staff.
Dr Layton was pleasant and efficient. The staff spent a lot of time discussing politics. Whatever your point of view the old adage of no religion and no politics is sage advice for a business environment. That said the staff were pleasant when interacting with me.
Dr. Layton is both a dermatologist and skin pathologist. She was very informative in the office visit we had and formed an opinion pretty quickly about my skin issue and took a sample for lab analysis. I feel much better after seeing her!
Waited for 40 minutes before being seen by a doctor. I came with a very specific reason and instead she tried to up-sell me on pricey laser treatments and botox ( ...I am 27).
I enjoyed my first experience here. Dr. Layton is direct, efficient, but also found a way to connect/have a sense of humor during the visit. I felt she was thorough, present, and informative. I very much enjoyed the woman who accompanied her to start my appointment and take notes in the room as well (Nurse/NP/Assistant?). Overall I felt comfortable which is a critical element when seeing any healthcare professional.
I was very happy with my visit. She immediately pointed out the spots that were concerning to her and took them for inspection right away. She was very friendly and personable.
Once I was finally seen by the doctor it was great. Didn't appreciate having to wait 50 minutes to be seen though. It made me late for a business appointment I had.
Very good. Quick, painless and informative.
Dr. Layton is very caring and mindful! Not only is she a great listener, she is also great at explaining symptoms, causes, and treatment. She really cares about your well being and is really helpful and cooperative in trying to get down to the cause. Her positive attitude is extremely reassuring! Definitely will be going back.
