Verified Patient Reviews
The receptionist and staff was very professional and the atmosphere was great. All questions was answered reference my visit and I will refer to others that has been for great profession help for skin, and hair care. I was absolutely satisfied. I would recommend to others.
Even though this was my first time I loved the way the staff greeted me and the actual appointment. I felt heard and not dismissed which was important to me.
I thought the meeting went well, & am glad I booked the appointment with het.
Dr. Miles was fabulous. She was thorough and very knowledgeable. Her staff was excellent too. I am very happy with my results.
She’s so sweet and pleasant. Very knowledgeable and organized. Always a joy being seen by Dr. Miles!!
I appreciate the level of professionalism and candor from this office. Highly recommend!!
Was not impressed with the doctor and the personnel.
I do not like having to leave my credit card on permanent file with their office. I will not be going back to this place of business.
Very concise. Diagnosed the problem right away. Extremely Knowledgeable!
Dr. Miles and her staff are always prompt. I'm provided nothing but, great service and respect whenever I go to her office. I highly recommend her, she is a great resource and very knowledgeable. I've been seeing her since before starting her own practice.
Dr. Miles' staff are professional, informed, personable. The space is lovely and soothing. I drive from Washington, D.C., and since the traffic is light and parking is accessible, the drive takes less time than driving downtown. Most importantly, I feel that Dr. Miles is a professional and a healer with a focus on excellence. I recommend her to all of my friends and family.
I showed up to the appointment on time but still had to wait in excess of thirty minutes for my appointment. In an age where doctors have signage indicating they can charge patients for being late, there should be an effort to have appointments be on time. While this is nearly impossible with patients who **are** late and then cause everything to back up, at the very least the receptionist should indicate that there is a wait--and apologize. Mercifully, this is an annual appointment but if I had to visit this practice regularly, I would definitely take this into consideration.
I was a new patient on the first visit and very happy I picked Dr. Miles. She was very friendly, very professional and attentive. She helped with everything I needed. I definitely recommend.
Professional, knowledgeable and prompt
She was able to look at my skin and immediately know what I needed. The cream and shampoo that she prescribed worked!
Dr. Katina is wonderful. She is very personable and always has a solution to my skin problem. Her staff is great too!!!
Office staff is friendly and helpful and very minimal wait time, maybe 10 minutes at most.
She was very friendly. She took time to explain my condition and answered all questions I had. I also didn’t feel she rushed my time to get to the next patient which some doctors tend to do. Great bedside manners.
Very nice and professional and to the point. Didn't push for unnecessary procedures.
Extremely polite and attentive. Highly recommend Dr. Miles. 10 Star!
Dr. Katina is wonderful she took her time with me and had great bedside manner. I will definitely be seeing her from here on out and recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Dr. Miles was super informative and patient, and her assistants were very kind also. The front desk staff were helpful and welcoming. I would definitely recommend friends here. The only negative for me was waiting about 10-15 minutes past my scheduled appointment time, but that’s not a big deal at all. Great experience overall!
SHE TOOK TIME TO TALK AND LISTEN. THE WHOLE STAFF WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL.
I love the space and energy when you enter the office. The staff is extremely professional, and I felt as if I was in the hands of an experienced healer, who wanted to explore and understand the issue, and not just check a box and move to the next patient. I did not mind waiting, because I felt like a quality experience. Most importantly, I began to experience progress within a few weeks of her prescribed treatment.
I thought the office staff was very professional and helpful. Dr. Miles was very knowledgeable, professional and personable.
Dr. Miles was very knowledable. I'll be coming back.
Came in to see Dr. Miles for eczema and acne and both conditions have improved greatly since my first visit. She's very pleasant and knowledgeable on both conditions. She usually has an assistant that takes care of the medications in terms of telling you how to use the medications she prescribes and such. For all my visits so far, she has spent just enough time to inspect, diagnose, recommend, or reaffirm course of treatment. The only downside for now is the distance I travel to see her.
Dr. Miles listened carefully w/o interruptions to what my problem was and came up w/ a plan to treat me. I like Drs. who listens to patients and try to give a diagnosis w/o listening to ALL of the symtoms. I love her will definitely be my Dermatologist now henceforth & forever more.
Learned a lot and felt that my needs and concerns were important. Everyone was warm and competent.
She is very nice and listens to my concerns.
I enjoyed meeting Dr. Miles. She was very courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable of the concerns I brought to her. She answered all my questions and even provided some alternative procedures/treatments that could possibly help resolve or alleviate my condition (but she was careful to acknowledge that those alternative options may not work as well). Her nurse was equally courteous. I would give my visit with her an A+, Excellent, 5 stars. On the other hand, her front desk staff was NOT A+. Please be advised that Dr. Miles has a policy in her office that requires every patient to leave a card on file so her office can charge you a fee for any appointments you may miss or arrive late or balances left from your health insurance. I understand the policy but it should not be requested of any new patients. I believe the fee should be applied to any patients that have violated the policy. To apply it to every new patient is a huge turn-off especially with an unfriendly front desk staff that gives you an ugly look if you refuse to leave your credit card. Even with this policy, I would still recommend Dr. Miles.
Dr. Miles was great! A full body scan can be uncomfortable and she made it not so bad. She answered all my questions and talked me through the exam. I like the technology use in office. The whole appointment was very efficient and I love that you can book appointments online.
Dr. Latin a Miles was very professional, thoural, and curtyious.
Very efficient and friendly staff. Dr. Miles and her assistant made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Dr. Miles answered my questions without making me feel rushed. Great doctor.
Nice staff- very open and friendly. Dr. MIles was very thorough
Loved the doctor and the doctor's tech. Wait time was around 40 minutes, so a little more than I wanted but it's a doctor's office. Only small issue I had was the two ladies working up front. Did not greet me or anyone else I saw come in and sign the clipboard which was literally right in front of them. Just came off kind of rude. Other then that I definitely recommend this doctor! Super personable and helpful.
Very good visit.. Dr was knowledgeable and professional
The experience was amazing and the staff was friendly AND professional! ??Very happy to have her as my dermatologist
The 1st visit was okay. I like her personality. I feel she should have explained conditions, treatments and outcomes a bit better. All in all I would still recommend her to others. I hope I leave from my second visit with a little more information.
Very informative; I will be returning soon to do a check up and to buy product for skin care.
I will not refer people here or return myself, very unprofessional and the front office woman was SO RUDE on the phone, the type that talks AT YOU instead of TO YOU. Awful customer service. The dr didn't seem to care.
I appreciate Dr. Miles taking the time to address my multiple issues and answer any questions I had. I did not feel rushed and left feeling confident that I have simple solutions to my skin issues.
Highly skilled, professional, and caring.
My visit with Dr. Miles was very much professional and what you would expect from a high-quality dermatology office! I'm just personally not able to afford the customized treatment plan, in addition to my current treatment plan at the moment. And it's quite a financial lift up-front, especially considering that the treatment may or may not work in tandem with my current treatment that is giving me satisfactory results. It didn't seem like there was room to discuss options or natural alternatives outside of dietary restrictions, or the usual advice about having acne.
The wait was a little longer than I'd like, BUT it makes sense when she's taking her time listening to your concerns! I will be back for sure !
Staff & doctor very friendly, professional & knowledgeable. I was taken aback by requirement to leave credit card information on file. No personal checks accepted.
Dark spot on face
It was good. Did not feel rushed and she answered all my questions and did not get annoyed.
My visit with Dr.Miles was great!! My wait time was under 30 minutes (new patient forms) , once I was taken back it was 5 or less minutes before the doctor came in and evaluated my complaints and did a simple procedure. Overall my experience was less than an hour in and out. Best service ever in a doctor's office.
Dr. Miles was gentle, kind and very professional. She and her staff were courteous at every step of the new patient process. I'm looking forward in getting the medical treatment that I need from such a wonderful professional.
Dr. Miles has great bedside manners. She is friendly, knowledgeable and really makes sure that you get the best treatment and results possible. My first appt was November 2016 where I was given 3 acne medications and 2 scalp medications. She advised me how to properly take them and within one week I began to see results! I couldn't believe how drastically my acne and dark spots began to fade! After only 3 months, my skin is looking better than ever and should be fully cleared of all dark spots in another 2 months or so. Great doctor, pleasant staff, wait time fluctuated each visit. The longest I've waited is an hour and some change, but this is not a normal occurrence. Plus, the area is nice- new shopping centers in walking distance. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Really liked the doctor and how thorough she was, but the office seemed very geared toward elective and cosmetic procedures and advertising pharmaceutical brand name drugs, which I did not like.
She was very knowledgeable.
I was very please with the way I was treated even though I came in already in pain. The wait time seemed to be too long. Even though many of us have grown to expect a long wait at the doctor's office even if you are not a new patient. If the wait time was less than 30 minutes this would have made the visit excellent. Overall I am pleased with the Dr. Miles professionalism and care.
Very professional, very relaxed atmosphere. Great assistant to go over details
Dr. Miles is always pleasant and professional. She is very knowledgeable about her field. She seems like a genuinely nice person. I highly recommend.
Dr. MIles was very professional, knowledgeable and timely. She put me at ease and I felt very comfortable talking with her.
She is a great dermatologist and I trust her knowledge in skincare. I've seen other dermatologists before, but Dr. Miles will explain the truth behind the process of treating your skin type and she explains how the skin will be improved. I saw her for adult acne treatment and she said it will get worse before it gets better, I'm finally starting to see results three months in and I continue to see Dr. Miles because this is the first time I've seen results this good.
She and her staff were professional, nice, and very efficient. I highly recommend them!
I really liked Dr. Miles along with her nurse and the women at the front desk. Everyone was pleasant and professional.
Great first visit, quick and too the point. Doc was very professional and personable. Looking forward to my follow-up appointment.
Very good visit; they seem very interested in making sure that they had accurate information about the patient and a good understanding about why the patient was there. They are very efficient and their use of technology helps make the visit timely for everyone. Very impressed with their mannerism, professionalism and presentation. Office very clean and welcoming.
I am a new patient. I like the bedside manner of Dr. Miles and the nurses that I have dealt with. I have referred others to Dr. Miles who like her as well.
The office is really clean and inviting. The average amount of time I've waited on my visits has been around 30 minutes.
Good - saw improvements in my skin in one month based on her recommendations. Very informative and helpful.
Dr. Byrd Miles was very knowledgeable about my skin care issues and she has a great bedside manner.
Gave all the options for treatment. No pressure to purchase inhouse products. Seems very up to date on all the best & current treatments.
So grateful to have found you! Looking forward to the relationship we are building as you work with my daughter over the next several months!
Awesome people!!!! With such beautiful smile.
Everyone was very nice and professional. Sarah was excellent and very knowledgeable. Dr. Miles was very attentive, focused and made recommendations. I enjoyed my first visit and look forward to my next visit.
Very friendly and responsive.
Excellent experience, great advice and look forward to treatment.
This was my 1st visit and I was very pleased and will definitely go back.
My visit was very informative. Dr. Miles addressed all of the concerns that I had and suggested options and outcomes to resolve each of them. She was very understanding of my preference to take the less invasive therapies and did not push for me to take more aggressive treatment.
Great service. Very personable! Really enjoyed the visit! Office staff and nurse were excellent as well! Highly recommend!
Dr. Miles is excellent and a great listener. I recommend her to all my friends and family.
This was my first visit and Dr. Miles was very knowledgeable and treated my skin issue. Dr. Miles also gave me additional advice for skin care options and fully examined me. She had a great bedside manner and was very professional while also pleasant. In addition her staff was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend.
It was great. Dr. Miles was very personable and approachable, she answered all my questions.
Very pleasant, professional and positive. Explained everything to me in details and answered all my questions. Thank you!
Straightforward but friendly approach by staff and Dr Miles. All aspects were explained including cost.
Went to see her for my yearly skin check. She was very thorough and explained any issues she found very well. Good bedside manner. I was seen within minutes of my appointment time. Front desk staff was helpful but not very friendly, just matter of fact.
Front desk was very helpful and pleasant to work with. Katina Miles, is very professional and was very attentive to my concerns.
This was a great visit. The entire staff is a joy to work with. Dr.Miles provided a great treatment plan and options.
My first consultation with her was great. Very informative and personal. Her assistant was great to talk to and work with as well.
Great office and Doctor; the wait time was ridiculous though.
Excellent staff and nurse, doc was straight forward and thorough!!
Very thorough and answers all of your questions, even if you have a hundred of them! She knows her stuff and pretty much laid out a treatment plan for all my problems right away. She has such a sweet spirit. Will definitely return.
First visit ever. Very professional and good manner. All staff made the visit extremely comfortable.
I've had skin tags & moles removed before. However, my experience with Dr. Miles was by far the most comfortable.
I was referred to see a dermatologist for contact dermatitis , I chose Dr Miles. She was pleasant but I did not feel she understood my problems with the issue. I felt she would be much better for cosmetic issues rather than my issue. This is just my opinion.
Doctor was very friendly, thorough and professional. The nurse was super nice and quickly put me at ease. Front desk staff were quick and informative and handled all of the paperwork with no issues at all.
The waiting room was beautiful and cozy. The staff at the front desk were very kind and helpful. The nurse that came before the doctor was very up to date and helpful. Dr. Miles gave a swift assessment and was able to give me solutions.
The office staff was not welcoming. They all seemed annoyed and did not possess pleasant dispositions. They tried to sell products on the first visit and the doctor rushed through the appointment making random choices in medication usage. They also will not ket you use your choice of pharmacy. I wAs very disappointed and will never return. Quality patient service should be a top priority and they lack it. The visit was a waste of time.
Very happy to have found this practice! Her staff were very professional and courteous and both Dr. Miles and her assistant were very knowledgeable. I really appreciated that they took time to explain the diagnoses and what medications/products would work best for my specific needs. I had a few questions and concerns and I never felt rushed or cut off when she would explain things to me. Would absolutely return to her if I have any other skin concerns!
She is GREAT i would recommend her to anyone i wish there were more Doctors like her
The doctor and her staff were pleasant. I was seen quickly and she was thorough in her explanations of my issues and the possible treatment plan.
1st visit. 2nd visit should avail itself.
My first time there and I loved the service and professionalism.
Dr Miles was very professional, personable, and attentive to the patients' questions. She provided answers that were easy to understand and quickly performed the necessary treatment,
Excellent from all aspects. Immediately I was seen, consulted, diagnosed and put on a care plan tailored to my specific needs. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and explained everything I need to do and how to use the products and prescriptions I was given. The Esthetician spoke with me privately and even wrote out my AM/PM regimen - which I desperately needed. She also developed a point system which allows for discounts on products and future services. There was no hard selling, just great advice, expertise and education. The best part and most important part for me (the reason why I chose this specific place) was that the doctor, medical personnel and specialists share my ethnicity - so I knew I was getting, not only the help I desperately needed, but the BEST examination and care plan designed for MY skin. I was even provided coupons for the prescriptions issued. My former skin care habits have completely trashed my skin and for the first time in my life, I have hope that in a few months, I'll have the skin I've always dreamed of having. My only regret, is not getting to them sooner. Customer for life :)
Dr. Miles was very professional and straight to the point about finding a solution. However I would like it if her office staff were a little more respectful. When I entered, I greeted both women and was met with silence and very stiff responses when I asked questions. This isn't a deal breaker, but when I greet someone and have questions I expect better.
My visit overall was very good, because of my extended wait time my Specialist Co-Pay was waived, I consider that EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!
This was my first experience with Dr. Miles, and I could not have been more satisfied. She was very thorough and informative, and addressed some issues right then and there, instead of requiring me to make another appointment. I highly recommend her and her excellent staff. Thank you!
I highly recommend Dr. Katina Miles! I took a leap based solely on reviews left by others, and I was not disappointed. The staff was polite and friendly, and made sure I was comfortable and understood what to expect. Dr. Miles took her time, listened to my concerns and communicated in a thorough and professional manner. She was kind and friendly, and made sure all my questions were answered. Thank you for a great experience!
She was very quick and efficient. Listened to my concerns and came up with a regimen to treat my issues. Was able to get information on something that previous dermatologists were unable to diagnose/understand. Love the nurse!!
I scheduled this appointment same day and online from the office website. I was able to enter all of my daughters information and complete the registration forms to be sent directly to the office prior to my arrival. Upon arrival I was pleased to see a very neat, clean office and greeted by a very friendly receptionist. I was totally satisfied with the visit. She answered and made clear all of my concerns regarding my daughters skin. Dr. Miles provided excellent bedside manner and I did not feel rushed through my appointment at all which is a PLUS for me. Her assistant/nurse was very helpful in making sure I understood my after visit information regarding my daughters prescriptions and ensuring that if I had any questions to please not hesitate to contact the office. My 8yr old came nervous but was immediately put at ease upon being triaged by the assistant and after her visit with Dr. Miles. I would definitely recommend Skin Oasis for your dermatologic care.
Very professional , and the staff was great. I felt like they were family!
Professional and welcoming.
The nurse was really fun and helped my son feel at ease. Dr Miles was very polite, professional and thorough. Overall it was an excellent visit. We will definitely be back again.
She took her time and educated me as to what was wrong with me. Her assistances were very knowledgeable as well! So far so good I will be making a follow up appointment
I was very pleased to get an appointment the same day, especially after I got the wrong diagnosis at an urgent care clinic over the weekend. Mr. Miles, her nurse, and office staff were all excellent. I felt so much better within the hour of the visit.
Dr. Miles was very pleasant as was her staff. My concerns were addressed quickly.
Very nice. Takes her time with you. Good listener.
Dr. Miles was very personable. She examined my skin and scalp, identified the dandruff issues and prescribed two medications. Both have worked very well!
She looked at me for 5 minutes total. Not happy with the amount of time I took off work to be given very little of her time.
For me to drive 45 minutes away to see her and have a 5 minute discussion, of which she didn't ask any background history (for acne) was ridiculous. She literally confirmed I was there for acne and told me to take this and that and off i went. I felt rushed and like I was just another patient. There was also a male trainee who came in the room. I was never asked if I felt comfortable with him there and to have 3 people looking back at you did not make me feel comfortable or able to speak freely. We'll see if I go back in 3 weeks and if this medication even works. Overall, right now...not worth the drive, the tolls or my time.
I think she is a very apt physician and she was precise in what she can and cannot do for my skin and I like the manner in which she explained . I will have to see if she is as good as I think she is due to this was my first visit with her,however first impressions are everything and she made a lasting one in a most positive way.
I've never been to a dermatologist and didn't know what to expect. She was very professional, looked at my issue and provided two options for moving forward. I will be going back for a follow-up in 3 weeks. On a separate note, I read in the comments that the office didn't have all the history they'd filled out on Zoc Doc, so I didn't fill it out. They had the few things I did fill out online and then I had to fill it all out in person. I don't know why they didn't have that other person's, maybe it was a long time ago, but they have the info now.
Great visit. Receptionists were warm and inviting, medical assistant was very professional and easy to talk to. Dr. Miles was very professional as well, and took concern with the reason I was there. I would highly recommend this practice!
The office staff were extremely friendly. The nurses were quick and triaged thoroughly. I will definitely return to Dr Miles' office.
Quick to understand my problems and was an easy in & out. Great service
Dr Miles was friendly and involved. The staff and nurse were also great.
I was 17 minutes late due to traffic and bad weather. They wanted me to reschedule but since I'm 45 minutes away it wasn't worth it to me. The receptionist also said they don't get paperwork from Zocdoc so I had to refill everything out in person that I already filled out online.
Dr. Miles was very knowledgeable and good at explaining my conditions. She listened to my concerns and addressed each very appropriately.
I was a new patient and she did not spend a lot of time with me. I felt rushed along for the next patient. I am suppose to return in two weeks. Wet will see.
The entire staff was efficient and professional. They explained everything that was going to happen, how to use certain products and no pressure to schedule cosmetic treatments.
We were able to schedule an appointment and be seen right away. Excellent staff and Doctor - made my teenage son feel very comfortable.
efficient...answered my questions and gave me options. very professional.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Miles. She was very attentive and professional.
Very happy with the visit. Surprised how painless the procedure was and she provided specific answers to any questions we may have had.
Very professional and efficient Swift service but thorough Would recommend
I did not know what to expect at this appointment, as I'd booked it via ZocDoc and it was my first time using this website. I was pleasantly surprised. The office is very professional, as was Dr. Miles. I'd recommend to anyone.
Very fast straight to the point
