Dr. Blank was very thorough and caring about my issues. She took her time and made sure I was aware of the procedure and gave me the knowledge to make the best decision. I appreciated the fact she was very tothe point and made the best use of the time. Dr. Blank is the best dermatologist I've ever seen.

She was very rude and short. She asked why I was there and I told her for acne laser. She said she doesn’t do that and told me that I wasted her time, threw the chart in the table and walkedout. The office staff told me I could leave.

It took 10 minutes for them to send me to the doctor's office and 5 minutes for her to arrive. She was with me for about 20+minutes and she was great. Asked the right questions, straight to the point, talked aboutpast issues, as she is not sure what exactly is, she did a biopsy and was worried about a visible scar so she found a place that was somewhat covered. She prescribed me a cream and pill, however I had trouble with the sensation, I called her practice the next day and they transferred me to her in 5 minutes, changed the prescription and sent directly to my pharmacy to pick up. She is a very fast paced talker, so it might feel as if she was rushing you, but I asked same question a couple of times and she just answered and explained better. I highly recommend her as she spent enough time with me to answer all my questions.

A lot of reviews said they felt rushed and I don't know what they were talking about. Doctor was clear, quick to the point, and we had a great chat! She was much friendlier than I expected. Did not push forunnecessary mole removal, since she thought it was benign. Came in nervous but left feeling pretty good. Do recommend this doctor!

The experience in her waiting room and with her staff was awful. They were unprofessional and did not communicate the wait time. They also stated after waiting that it was cash. BE SURE to bring cash, I was $5 short andthey told me to go to an ATM. I would not recommend going here at all! Dirty and old waiting room, overall disappointment.

They don't have an eftpos machine so only take cash, which I wasn't aware until arriving and then told to go to an ATM to get cash out. Went for an annual skin check but felt as though it was very rushed.

Doctor was extremely short in speaking with me. She made assumptions about my diagnosis without asking detailed question. I truly wish some doctors recognize that they are working with people who are competent and know when something is wrong in their body.

Removal of skin virus was very carlessley done, leaving blood on my shirt and, although I did not notice until I left the office, I had streams of blood dripping down my hand and arm that was nearly dried up andobviously from the procedure that had not been cleaned up. Very rushed appointment. Will not return or recommend.

The Office is outdated. And They are still using paper charts. Once my chart was created I was seen in less than 10 mins. I got my skin tags removed in 2 mins. Her bed side manner is great. Makes you feel comfortable.

She was very quick to get me in her office. She listened to both of my concerns and gave me tons of free samples for both issues I had plus a coupon for the prescription so it greatly reduced the price.She told me to book a follow up with her in 6 months or sooner if what she suggested caused any issues or clearly wasn't working. She is excellent and I liked her attitude... straight to the point!

What concerned me was the tray of expired medications sitting next to the exam table. One of the vials expired February 2012! Thank goodness she said she no longer removes cysts, but seriously, shouldn't she know to throw out expired medications!Also, if she doesn't remove cysts, how come they accepted my appointment and are going to bill my insurance company for it?

On the very first appointment, the doctor walked out of the room after seeing us for a few minutes before I got to ask about another skin problem. The next amazing thing was when they confirmed an appointment on Memorial Daywith me, got to the office after a long bus ride, and they were closed!!
