Verified Patient Reviews
Fantastic doctor. Rare to find someone with both an excellent bedside manner and a deeply scientific, thorough approach.
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 could have 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.
Dr. Kiracofe is an amazing dermatologist!

She is a wonderful person took time was so efficient her assistant trish outstanding I have been to many dermatologists in my 69 years I am so happy o found dr Kirocofe going to make appt for my husband also recommended her her to my son
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 very friendly, 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 and her staff let me know what everything they said meant to a lay-person. What items should be taken seriously and others that should not cause worry or concern. I would highly recommend her to others.
Great bedside manner, good communicator.
Dr. Kiracofe is very professional and takes the time to explain everything. Beautiful office and wonderful and friendly staff!

Dr. Kiracofe was SO warm and welcoming. She made everything so easy and even enjoyable. Thank you!!
Great initial consultation. Could not have asked for anything else. Dr. Elizabeth Kiracofe is a true professional and very knowledgeable. I have no concerns with the doctor, her staff or the new office If you are in need of dermatology services, you cannot do better!.
An extremely friendly doctor who listens to and explains things to her patients in a manner that makes you feel comfortable asking questions and taking a more proactive approach to your visit. Really appreciated her thorough assessment and approach to evaluation.
Very professional. She explained what she was doing and why.
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 daily regimen. Again left with answers and confidence in dealing with my skin. I would recommend her to everyone.
She was extremely professional, answered all my questions, made my visit quick and easy. She made me feel really comfortable. Definitely recommend!
She's great, went in for a specific treatment and she ended up noticing some other dryness and diagnosed the cause of that as well. Excellent communication and made me feel comfortable
Exactly what I needed. She was excellent
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, it wasn'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.
Dr. Kiracofe is very pleasant. She listened to my concerns, didn't rush through the appointment, and offered her recommendations with data and research results to back them.
Very pleasant experience
Dr. Kiracofe was very friendly and knew what was wrong with me in moments. Very informative about the condition and treatment, overall a very quick and pleasant process.
Even though the wait time was longer than expected, Dr. Kiracofe was extremely professional, immediately apologizing for the inconvenience. When talking about my skin conditions, she was comforting and took the time to explain things to me without being patronizing. Would definitely recommend her to any patient, young and old!
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 to adjust 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.
Elizabeth was great and very professional! She made me very comfortable during my visit.
Dr. Kiracofe was a great physician! Very professional and personable. Made me feel very comfortable. Would highly recommend her!
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 to expect that the Dr would uphold her end of the deal. I understand that things come up; waiting over an hour is not acceptable.
Dr. Elizabeth Kiracofe and her assistants were very professional, pleasant and informative.
Dr. Kiracofe was professional, thorough, empathetic and very knowledgeable. She explained everything in layman's terms and made the visit a pleasant one. I'd recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Kiracofe was very professional and informative. Super friendly staff all the way around. Highly recommended.
Love Dr. Kiracofe and she has been great to work with! Don't like the wait but not sure I can control that.
Outside of the wait time, Dr. Kiracofe is amazing. She was so kind and helpful. Answered all of my questions with a smile on her face and was just so warm and friendly. I called my sister right away to tell her to schedule a visit. Definitely recommend. Just be willing to wait.
Simply pleasant and friendly
She was excellent, explained everything and was very thorough. I wish all my doctors were as pleasant as Elizabeth.
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.
Staff was very pleasant to speak with. Had great customer service. Handled paperwork very theral. Doctor was pleasant, very knowledgeable, and trusting. Highly recommend this office.
Great bedside manner and excellent service. I was seen within 5 mins of my arrival. Dr. K was awesome and super knowledgeable.
Dr. Kiracofe is first rate all the way. 5 stars for bed side manner, professionalism, knowledgeable and thorough as a health provider .
Dr. Kiracofe is my kind of doctor! Besides being extremely knowledgeable, she is very easy to talk to. She listened to every question and concern that I had, as well as taking my thoughts and opinions into consideration. Rosacea is a rough journey, but this is the first time in years that I have seen and felt improvement in my skin so quickly.
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 my face. She mainly recommended products she sells and didn't really work for me.
It was my first time seeing Dr. Kiracofe and she was great. She was thorough, made me feel so comfortable, and was very knowledgeable. Her office is new and well designed. You can tell she passionate about her practice. Everyone in the office was lovely. Thank you, Dr. Kiracofe!
She was very nice and professional
Very professional, took her time to answer all questions, very knowledgeable.
Dr. Kiracofe is highly compassionate doctor who truly listens to your concerns and knows the best solutions for your budget! She's great!
Doc is Extremely warm! I explained my situation in detail and she patiently listened to my rant.Comes across as very positive person.Very knowledgeable and answered all the questions i had .Highly recommended.
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 genuine interest 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.
She was fantastic. So friendly and personable. Plus, very knowledgeable and professional. I look forward to having her be a doctor I see going forward! She was great!
Dr Kiracofe was very friendly and explained what she was doing. I would highly recommend!
Dr. Kiracofe is hands-down the best doctor/dermatologist that I've ever had. She genuinely cares about her patients, takes the time to really listen and answer any questions, and is very genuine. She is the ideal doctor -- patient, caring, knowledgeable, and genuine. She is a wonderful person and I highly recommend her.
I got taken to the room and spoke with the nurse pretty quickly, but then I was waiting for a while to be seen by the actual doctor after they said she'd be in in a "couple of minutes"-- at least 20 minutes. She was great but the whole place seemed a little chaotically run.
Very professional doctor. I felt very at ease and comfortable under her care. I will definitely be coming to her again and recommending her to everyone I know.
I'm very happy to have met Dr.Kiracofe and feel confident that we are going to get my skin looking great. She is very kind and listens. She took her time consulting me and got right to work. XM
The doctor and her staff were of high courtesy, professionalism, and efficient. Dr. Kiracofe was very thorough, patient and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend.
Dr. Kiracofe was great. She explained everything so even I could understand it. Very thorough and easy to talk to. Took care of all my needs. The staff was wonderful from the moment you arrive. Nice office space.Thanks Doc.
I absolutely loved her. She has a great bedside manner, seems like she really cares for her patients. I had a ton of questions and she answered all of them very thoroughly. You can tell she is an expert in her field and her care for her patients is genuine. I just wanted to hang out with her all day and become BFFs! But I know she had other patients waiting. Will definitely be going back.
The doctor was very thorough. I felt like all of my concerns were addressed without feeling rushed . The doctor was very knowledgeable and good at explaining
She was extremely nice and very helpful!
It was awesome! From the minute we walked in to when we walked out!
Love my visit with Elizabeth K she's Amazing!! She was great and I'm so excited to get started on this journey. She made me feel so comfortable and I'm confident that the plan she has in place for me will deliver results... definitely will return.
I like her demeanor. She was very thorough although did have to see another patient so not all issues were addressed this visit. Have to follow up so we planned to finish the consult then. Will follow her advice and see how it goes.
She was efficient, effective, listened to my questions and addressed them fully and clearly. I will absolutely be returning!
Love, love, LOVED Elizabeth. She was super cheery, courteous, made me feel right at ease, and clearly very knowledgeable - could tell at a cursory glance if a spot was problematic or needed further examination, but was also very thorough - didn't feel rushed, attended to all questions and needs.
I thought that she was great and I'm so excited to get started on this journey. She made me feel so comfortable and I'm confident that the plan she has in place for me will deliver results.
LOVED my visit with Dr. Kiracofe. She is awesome!
I thought it was fantastic. Dr Kiracofe and her assistant Tricia were both excellent. I had tons of questions and they took the time to answer in a detailed yet understandable way. I would highly recommend this office as even the front desk people were nice, very patient and very professional. All in all; a good experience.
I loved it. I was so pleased with her, she was very throw with my visit.
Dr. Kiracofe was excellent! Very knowledgeable and thorough. I would definitely go see her again.
She was very thorough and took her time with me and my family. She answered all of our questions and was patient with explaining things to us. I found her to be very professional and knowledgeable.
I arrived a bit late and had to fill out new patient paperwork, which delayed my appointment by a bit but Dr. Kirakofe was wonderful. She was kind, thorough, and prescribed a treatment plan that I feel optimistic about. I look forward to managing my long-term skin condition with her
Dr. Kiracofe was amazing. She was able to identify my condition right away when many other dermatologists who had looked at me in the past did not know. She makes you feel secure and welcomed. The way she carries herself and her treatment with her patients is really what sets her apart. She wants her patients to know that she's there for them. I truly left fully satisfied with my visit.
Very warm and friendly bedside manner and she didn't rush me. Instead of selling me a new product she advised that I continue using the one I already had - great sign when a dermatologist does not push. I'd fully recommend Dr. K
Professional, knowledgable and courteous. Made going to the doctor a pleasant experience. Answered all my questions and allayed my fears.
