Dr. Kiracofe was great! I've been struggling with that late-20s adult acne for a few years now and finally just told myself to suck it up and get my butt to the dermatologist. Dr. Kiracofe was the best choice I couldhave made! She took a look at my acne, asked me a handful of questions and listened to my concerns and acne history. She very thoughtfully and thoroughly explained the course of treatment she recommended and I walked out of the office feeling very optimistic! Highly recommend.

Beautifully appointed office (not that such a thing is necessary for a doctors office, but it makes the short wait even nicer!). Friendly staff, efficient, and organized. Paperwork not to challenging (or irritating!). Dr. Kiracofe was veryfriendly, thorough in her screening, and she explained what she was looking for / at & offered great council. She is easy to talk to & it is evident she is very patient oriented. All in all a very nice, friendly, efficient & easy visit. Strongly recommend.

Dr. Kiracofe is the rare doctor who is willing to say "I don't know, but I'll work hard to figure this out." This is so refreshing because in my experience, most doctors are too sure of their diagnoses and unwilling toadjust to new information. She is confident and very smart, but also humble. She spent a good amount of time with me listening to the complex details of my medical concern and found a way to move forward. Doctors have so many pressures on their time and energy, but Dr. Kiracofe somehow gets past all that and is able to fully focus on each patient and spend the time and mental focus needed with them to help them.

I had high expectations but not a good experience at all. First of all she was really late to see and rushed the visit. I had some make up on and she didn't bother to remove it and look at myface. She mainly recommended products she sells and didn't really work for me.

Dr Kiracofe was awesome. Originally brought my almost two year old to see her because of an ongoing rash. I left with a plan and now have a rash free daughter. Returned again for myself and learned a ton about dailyregimen. Again left with answers and confidence in dealing with my skin. I would recommend her to everyone.

I was very satisfied with my visit with Dr. Kiracofe. Even though I was 7 minutes late to my appointment, she accommodated me. Because of being late, I thought it's gonna be a quick in & out thing. But thankfully, itwasn't. She didn't make me feel in a hurry at all. She gave me enough time to say what I need to say, explained every treatment option I could use & answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend her to any one who needs dermatology consultation & of course I'm coming back to her to continue my treatment.

She listened to every question and concern that I had, as well as taking my thoughts and opinions into consideration. Rosacea is arough journey, but this is the first time in years that I have seen and felt improvement in my skin so quickly.

I was most unhappy about having to wait over an hour. I was told to be at the office 15 minutes early to complete paperwork; I was there on time. I made an appt for 11:15 and had every reason toexpect that the Dr would uphold her end of the deal. I understand that things come up; waiting over an hour is not acceptable.

The office space is beautiful. Check-in was prompt and we were promptly moved to an exam room and seen by a nurse, but the wait for the doctor was way too long. We weren't seen by the doc until 35 minutes after our appointment time.

Great experience. I was looking for a good dermatologist to see for a skin screening and scrolling through reviews I felt like I came across quite a few where people stated that doctors they had seen didn't seem to show genuineinterest in their patients but then I came across Dr. Kiracofe and there were a lot of positive things being said. My first visit went great. The staff was friendly and Dr. Kiracofe took her time to listen to my concerns. She makes sure you leave the office feeling she addressed any questions you had. I've already started recommending her to friends because I'm sure they would be just as happy as I was with my visit.
