Dr. P is really a great doc. My son is a very challenging case due to the restrictions on medicines he can take and has intractable acne. Dr. P thinks outside the box to get him the best results possible.

He had a great sense of humor which calmed my nerves. He explained what he was going to do and what it would feel like. He told me not to be afraid to ask him to stop the treatment if it was uncomfortable and we would take a short break. This was probably the best experience at a doctor I have ever had.

Dr. P gave me a couple of options on treatment and his opinion on each (including a procedure I had done previously with another dermatologist). On his recommendation, I chose a different approach from what I had done in the past and was pleased with the results. He didn't steer me wrong.
