Lovely person but didn’t even really look at my area of issue. Prescribed me a medicine that I found out isn’tcovered by insurance. My pharmacy called her a week ago and still no return call. Waste of a copay

I went to Dr. Best for a rare condition. She was understanding and let me talk openly about my situation. This was not the experience I've had with other doctors dealing with the same issues! I would highly recommend her.

The front desk staff are not attentive nor warm. However, I had next to zero wait time in waiting room and in exam room. Dr Best was friendly and gave a thorough head to toe front to back screening exam.

I wasn’t pleased about my visit with Dr. Best. I was kept waiting for at least 45 minutes because she was running behind, even though I showed up 15 minutes early to see her. Her bedside manner was brusque and Ifelt very rushed throughout the visit. Her staff was rude. I won’t be returning for a follow up.

There was trouble right away finding my referral, no big deal, they let me be seen anyway. The doctor herself was friendly and sweet but looked at my like I had three heads when explain my prior conditions and why myskin looked the way it did. Then said I had plain dry skin and nothing more. Uh yeah, no. Was she not listening? She was great overall, but kind of disappointing that she wasn’t listening to my medical history.

It was my first time seeing her and she was great! She really listens and answers all questions. Also, it didn't feel like she was rushing through it even though the office was pretty busy. Overall, it was a good experienceand I look forward to seeing her more consistently. I would definitely recommend her.
