Dr, Hensley is my go to for skincare in D.C. She makes time for her existing patients, and finds ways to work out treatments that fit your needs - she is not about pushing new medicines or things you do notwant to do - which is huge when you have something like psoriasis. 100% worth every minute of every appointment!

Dr. Hensley was great! I went in for an annual cancer screening. She had excellent bedside manner and answered my questions clearly and didn’t try to push any products or procedures on me (I’ve had that happen at other practices). Myonly complaint is that I had to wait 20 minutes in the room in the paper gown where I was cold. I arrived 15 min before my appointment and was called back right at my appointment time. I have a pretty flexible workplace, but I know that could be an issue for others.

The wait time was long. Apparently Thursdays are the busiest days of the week so don't make the same mistake I did and book a different day. As a result, the appointment - a skin cancer screening - felt rushed andless thorough than skin cancer screenings I had in the past and she did not have the time to discuss other skin conditions. That said, Dr. Hensley took the time to remove a potentially cancerous mole on the spot. I would recommend her - she was very professional and took care of a major issue right away.

My appt was at 4, but I wasn't seen until 4:35. Maybe it was the lag from all of the appointments through the day, but it's never fun to wait long. Dr. Hensley though was fantastic.

Colleagues recommended this office to me and I was pleased. She is aware that patients are uncomfortable and is courteous about looking at small areas of your skin at a time so you can remain as covered as possible. She letme decide whether to remove or watch a mole and clearly explained what would happen when I consented to removal. I went home with reminders of how to care for the site, as well as what to watch for with changing moles.

I am truly so fortunate to have found Dr. Hensley on Zocdoc. I read several reviews that stated the wait times were less than desirable, however I only waited about 5-8 minutes (which seems pretty standard). I was greeted and usheredinto my appt. room by Dr. Hensley's assistant and he asked me some standard questions. Usually this happens and you have to repeat everything to your Dr. Not the case. I can tell they had a conversation about what my problems were and I greatly appreciated Dr. Hensley having a plan of action before talking to me. She was friendly, her office was spotless and warm (as much as can be in a doctors office), and she had a plan. No time wasted. I left with a prescription and a sample to hold me over until it was ready. I was anxious about my acne but am grateful I am on my way to better skin.

Bring all your questions written down so you don't forget to ask anything. Before you get to see her, her assistant will ask you what you are here for and type the information in a tablet. Make sure you mention everything.Then the assistant will brief the doctor while you get ready. (Personally, I found it awkward to explain things to an assistant, would have preferred to interact only with the specialist.) Then the doctor will come and check you up, fix what she can fix immediately, prescribe something chemical, answer your questions very quickly and then it's over. Then again, the assistant will follow up. Whatever you don't ask or specifically point out will be left out. Don't expect a very thorough examination or conversation. Naturally, she will ask you to come back again to follow up. The experience felt very generic, quick, and impersonal, but cordial.

Dr. Hensley could not have been any nicer! She made me feel so comfortable the whole time I was there! I went in for a skin check and I was nervous since I hadn’t been in a few years. She didnot make me feel bad this. No judgment from her. She was sweet and kind and I will definitely go back to see her next year! I highly recommend her!
