Did not have the ZOC doc appointment in their system but they said don’t worry, they could see me anyway. I waited for 1.5 hours before getting to see the doctor. Wish they would have just rescheduled!!!!!!

Longest wait of my LIFE. Their system was down, so all of the paperwork that I spent a good 10 or more minutes filling out online I had to do again when I was there. Wait was ridiculous. Doctor looked atme for all of 5 seconds and handed me a prescription, ignored or talked around any questions I had. Convinced me to schedule a different appointment, and when I called to reschedule it their system was down AGAIN, so they just cancelled it and told me to "call another time" when their system was up. Waiting room was full almost the entire time. Very unprofessional and LOUD staff. People in waiting room were incredibly old and disrespectful, had entire phone calls sitting next to people without a care in the world. But as for the doctor, I would NOT recommend. It seems like an issue with Big Pharma, as in they just want you to get all of these treatments and be broke afterwards, but them the complete opposite.

The wait time was horrific, even though I am not completely mad about that what was the worst is after the long wait time I was only and barely evaluated for 5 minutes. As if he never cared about my issue or recognized my issue.

Horrible service didn’t acknowledge anything or inspect any moles like a typical dermatologist, all I went in for was a regular check up on my moles to be looked at the doctor stayed about 5 feet away from me and saidlet’s do biopsies on all of them without any kind of inspection like a normal dermatologist would do please avoid this place like the plague they just want to run your insurance up and get extra co pay visits

I arrive 30 minutes before my appointment to fill out papaerwork etc. I waited for 39 minutes before I got the paperwork. They didn't find my appointment, because it was through Zocdoc. Waited roughly an hour an a half to goinside talk to a nurse about the reason fo my visit. Waited another 30 minutes for the doctor and 30 minutes more for the small procedure. They don't have a laser. Procedure was very old school. I was there for 4 hours total. The doctor apologized for the delay, he said he was short staffed, apparently 2 employees called in sick that day. He said is usually not like this. The office was spotless clean. The nurse and the doctor seemed knowledgeable. Depending on how I heal I will give them another try. There is plenty of parking space and seats are confortable.

I was very pleased with everything except one thing. My appointment was at 4pm. I was there 5 minutes early, signed in and sat down. Later another person came in and signed in for an appointment at 4:20. They gave himpaperwork to fill out and got him ready for his appointment and then called him back. THEN they handed me my paperwork and called me in 15 minutes after him over 30 minutes after my scheduled time. Filling out the ZocDoc paperwork online saved me a lot of time. They pulled it right up. The office personnel were amazing and the treatment was excellent. I was very pleased with my visit in spite of the bad first impression.

The Dr was awesome and his main nurse was as well. The other staff was not so great.... Me completing this form online in advance did not decrease my wait. They did not call to verify my insurance, etc before Igot there. ALSO; EVERYONE WAS SPEEKING IN ANOTHER LAUNGAGE MOST OF THE TIME!! Sorry this bother's me so much I will problably never got there again. I will go for one more follow up and then probably look elsewhere. Also; there was blood stains on the wall in the lady's restroom... Not Good!!!

Overall horrible experience. Incompetent front desk workers and Dr. Caban was extremely rude when responding to my hour and a half wait. Walked in, saw me, and left in 6 minutes! I had to argue to get my co/pay back and I did get it back.
