Both Sara(h) and Dr. Hensley were great! This was my first appointment and they were able to answer all of my questions and I did not feel rushed. She was thorough with my full-body screening and explained everything along the way. Definitely the best dermatologist I've ever been to!

This was my first visit with Dr. Hensley, and I definitely needed the support and appropriate consultation that she provided. She thoroughly explained the course of action to tackle my skin problems, and reassured me that we will get the optimalresults that I want for my skin. Dr. Hensley also offered to assist with any questions or concerns I may have as I journey to healthier 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!

This was my first time seeing Dr. Hensley. The environment of the office was great and friendly, but my wait time was definitely quite a while, around 30 minutes originally, then another 10 minutes when I was in the room waitingfor Dr. Hensley. As a WOC, I was so happy to find someone who knew about my skin. I really only saw her for 5-8 minutes but she came in confident, enthusiastic and with a plan. She prescribed me two acne meds. I appreciated that she answered all my questions and was very upbeat. I will be back next month for my 6 week check up so we shall see!

I love Dr. Hensley! She treats me for my acne, and did a mole removal for me once. She's so calm, funny, and makes you feel relaxed. The last thing anyone wants to feel when visiting a doctor is anxious, andshe makes you feel right at home. The copay is a little pricey. But that's not her fault.

Dr. Hensley was really great; I will continue using her. I have a huge fear of needles and she was very kind. The receptionist and nurse/assistant were really great too-- the only thing that could use improvement is the wait time, which was about 45 minutes.

First time patient and everything went super smoothly. The office was clean and bright, felt comfortable being there. The front desk staff was super helpful (and friendly! Especially Brea/Bria, she made me feel very welcome and easily guidedme through the new patient process) and scheduling was easy through ZocDoc. Dr. Hensley has the kind of bedside manner I very much appreciate, professional and open to questions, happy to explain. She was also quite friendly, happy to make jokes but clearly takes your health and inquiries seriously. Will absolutely be back.
