The provider is thoughtful and took time to explain pros and cons of the procedures. I had to visit the office multiple times, so I had plenty of exposure to the office and office staff. I was especially impressed that thephysician was not afraid to suggest that no action (e.g., wait-and-see) was a clear alternative. Meticulous office environment. High recommended.

Dr. Jakus was AMAZING, and so was her staff. I got lost on my way but the receptionist helped me find my way to the office and greeted me warmly even though I was about 30 minutes late. I spent maybe5 mins signing papers with one of the techs and then Dr.Jakus came in. Easily one of my longest appointments because I had so may questions and she answered all of them. I'm the pickiest person I know when it comes to my doctors and after about 5 years of searching, I have found my dermatologist.
