Dr. Shabazz was awesome. She was quick and right to the point about the options I had for my acne. She explained the process of medications; what the medications actually do to your skin and science behind the reactions in your skin. Then she gave me a timeline of how the use of medications and topical treatments, and the smartest way and sequence to address my issues. She was so informative, answered all my questions, and understood my concerns and desperation after dealing with acne for over 10 years. Hoping this will finally work for me! Wish me luck!

Dr. Shabazz if very knowledgeable on what is appropriate for your skin. I initially walked in thinking I would need something more harsh than necessary but she reminded me that every persons skin must be treated differently. She also provided me with a guide to go home with, as well as a skin regimen schedule for the morning and evening so I would not forget all of the information.

She was nice, but in a saccharine kind of way; constant smiling and eye contact is nice, but offputting when you have a medical concern. I did not feel that she understood or tried to understand my concerns despite trying several times to explain. I found the experience frustrating, but others may feel that she is just fine. I don't plan to make another appointment with this doctor.
