I felt like the exam was short and curt. The provider didn't spend a lot of time getting to know me as a patient holistically.

The doctor's office had no record of my appointment, even though I'd gotten multiple confirmation/reminder notifications from ZocDoc. Luckily, they squeezed me into their schedule, though I had to wait nearly 1 hour. Next time I'm callingto schedule an appointment. Doctor and staff were friendly and efficient, but the scheduling snafu was disappointing.

Where is the email with the link for accessing my portal? She said she would recommend some products for making me hair grow, but she did not. She did not address the eroded areas on my hand. She focused on theliquid nitrogen on my scalp and the biopsy on my scalp. I did not receive a bill for the services; have no idea what it will cost me.

We were starting from ground zero; i.e., it was my first visit with this doctor. I came in extremely frustrated with my condition. We discussed the stages of treatment starting with the least aggressive. I agreed to begin with a relativelybenign treatment plan for my skin. If I see no progress, I will revisit in six weeks. She seemed pretty knowledgable but not exactly warm and fuzzy. However, I am pretty jaded as I have skin problems that have no cure.

I really enjoy seeing Dr. Laura. She is very professional and personal. I receive an annual me check from her and while you have very little clothing on and a gown only, it is never awkward or uncomfortable. She is verythorough and I always leave feeling very secure after a mole examination.

I waited nearly an hour to spend about 3 minutes with the doctor. This was my first visit. No questions about my history were asked, no instructions were given, and it felt like a very awkward end to my visit. Sheintroduced herself, looked at the spot in question, told me it probably did not need to be biopsied at this time, and that was it. I went on the patient portal later and saw in her notes that she had supposedly talked to me about various skin care procedures, but no instructions were given.

DR Ericka was pleasant and seem to have knowledge about my issue. She looked at the abscess and the first thing she said was that got to be drained. That was music to my ears.. I feel better already. Dr Erickaask me to follow up in two weeks just to make sure it's not a Cyst.

Didn't feel like a thorough exam. It was awkward as her assistant stared at me as she was performing exam. Didn't offer any great advice or input with questions. Didn't offor a prescription, when I specifically asked about a prescription recommendation.
