I loved the nurse and doctor when I visited, I was very please with my care. However I had to wait for an hour before seeing them. This could have been scheduled better.

Dr. Shega is great! I was nervous about finding a new dermatologist since the one I had been seeing for years retired, but Dr. Shega exceeded my expectations! I will be back for all my dermatology needs. Thanks!

Treatment was fine. Very personable clinical staff. Billing seemed confused. Simple Biopsy split between multiple visits which i suspect was more a billing issue that anything else as additional a cost less then the initial one per visit. Parking is aweful.

I am an out of towner who developed an allergic reaction and was happy to get an appointment at this office. The physical office was ok, probably needed some new decor and sprucing up. Employees were nice and helpful. Dr was professional and friendly. The most important thing is that today the reaction is gone and my face is back to normal. So..thank you Dr. Shega.

I really loved the fact that Dr. Shega offers online booking and forms through ZocDoc. Unfortunately when I arrived none of the paperwork I had filled out was recognized by the reception staff and I had to fill out paperwork again. Slightly frustrating and very redundant. Also parking is not easy at this location. I had to drive around for almost 10 minutes before a spot opened up. My appointment time was at 11am. I arrived at 10:45am and was not called in to be seen until 11:30am. Actual service/experience was good. Dr. Shega provided a quick examination and operated all within 2 hours. He is very black and white and straight to the point but is friendly as well. His office could use some updates but overall it was a good experience.

While Dr. Shega himself was very nice and knowledgeable, I would not return to this practice. The facility was dirty and in bad need of updating (stained and peeling furnishings). The staff had issues finding my appointment through ZocDoc, they mischarged me on my first appointment, and almost did it on the follow up appointment, due to a lack of paying attention to basic math. We all make mistakes, but, I had to repeatedly show the person checking me out what the total should be, and how I arrived at that total. (and, I'm no math genius). I just didn't feel like I was in good hands with anyone on the staff, with the exception of the Dr himself.

HIghly recommend Dr. Shega. Being new to SD and in need of a derm, I looked everywhere for someone that could get me in as soon as possible. This doctor doesn't turn anyone down, perhaps due to working in the military and being used to seeing so many patients. He made me feel at home. I had a terrible flare up of rosecea and he went through my history and recommended a plan of action. I left feeling like things were finally going to be back on track and that there was hope! I look forward to seeing him again in 2 weeks and to finally nip this skin condition in the bootay!

Dr. Shega is a magician! Not only is the same-day appointment a Godsend, But Dr. Shega is a cool physician with talent and great staff! My distressing pre-vacation problem is quickly on the mend and I have deep gratitude! I have already made a referral and will continue to do so. Many Thanks! D.P.D.

I usually am very uncomfortable with doctor visits. I always forget to ask some of my questions because of the anxiety I feel. But Dr. Shega was very welcoming and calm. Very professional and easy to talk to. Plus his office is smaller and you don't have to fight for pay for parking. Calm setting, quick visit. He's a great guy. His assistant is really cool too.

I could write and write and write about Dr. Shega's poor staff performance but I'd summarize it all under one thing they had me in a room and they had just performed a biopsy and they left me there for an hour. When the nurse passed by he was shocked that I was still there

Very nice, but I was in the room waiting for over 40 minutes before I finally gave in and called the front desk to find out what was going on and if anyone was coming back.

The doctor and his staff are great! My only complaint is how long you have to wait to be seen. Maybe they book too many appointments.

Dr. Shega was friendly and efficient. He gave me enough free samples to try for ten days with a follow up appointment before having a prescription filled that may not treat my issue. I appreciate that very much. I arrived 20 minutes before my appt time, based on the receptionist's recommendation, so that I would have time to fill out all the new patient paperwork, and then unfortunately had to wait for 50 minutes until I was called, which was 30 minutes past my scheduled appointment time. I would've rated them higher if the wait had not been so long.
