The doctor was thorough and seemed to care about my issues. She did some minor treatment during the visit and made recommendations for follow up. Will definitely return when I need a dermatologist.

My overall experience was a positive one. The doctor was clear and concise and very efficient. She was up to date on current treatments and made me feel a lot more comfortable talking about different skin concerns. She also seemed tounderstand that some concerns were more cosmetic and confidence related than anything. She also didn't make me feel like a hypochondriac as I asked about a variety of things that concerned me with my skin.

Dr. Machnau was prompt getting to my room unlike other doctors where you might get into your room and then wait for 15 - 20 minutes in a drafty paper gown. She was in within 5 minutes. I was in andout of the appointment within 20 minutes. Thanks for respecting my time too as I usually go on my lunch hour.
