I dont think think this is a good place for African Americans or ppl of dark complexions. I have been having trouble with just a few blemishes left behind from using too much tea tree oil on my face. My skincomplexion can be described as light skin carmel (not dark skin). I'm aware that with darker skin people blemishes may go away quicker and that with a light complexion it's harder bc it takes time for those blemishes to fade back to your natural color. Cool. The dermatologist that I saw was a white younger lady. The first thing she told me was "bc I'm dark skin it will be hard for my blemishes to go away". I've never been called dark skin in my life. This just shows her knowledge on African Americans and darker skin ppl. The fact that she did not properly identify my skin color said enough. She obviously hasn't studied enough and other races and their different range of skin colors, so she was not going to be the best dermatologist for me. From the looks of it all the dermatologist here were white so I'm forced to think they all have the same school of thoughts. So depending on your complexion this may or may no be a good place for you. In conclusion, I do not feel as if I received the help that I need, my visit felt extremely rushed, and the care plan she gave me was questionable.

She was not faking any concerns even thought she knew that my case is rare so she tried to treat it with following up which was effective! But what I'm saying is that she is very good and nice. Also, shetold me that my case is rare and she's not fully knowledgeable about it which is pretty good for me because i don't want a doctor to pretend to know something for the money !

It was great! She was personable and put my son at ease. She could really relate to my teenager. Made him feel good about himself and that his issue was "treatable...no problem". I also like the reality in which she dealt with his regimen.

Dr. Fridlington and her nurse were professional and I intend to continue making appointments. The support staff less professional, but it's San Antonio so the disparity in professionalism (appearance, attitude, manners of speaking) between the support staff and the professionals that they support is par for the course.
