My visit was really very very fast. I think I spent more time walking there and filling out my intro papers, than I did with the doctor herself. Everything was really great overall, and I got all the information I needed and Dr. Craig was very helpful and personable, but I felt a little rushed.

Very brief - less than 15 minutes, which made the office visit extremely pricey. She didn't ask what I could afford and wrote a very expensive prescription that I had to pay out of pocket for. I guess the diagnosis was correct, though I didn't get much information about how to prevent recurrence or much information about the condition itself. After my follow up visit, which was less than 5 minutes, her nurse tried to upsell me for a full body exam to check for skin cancers. I have never had moles or even freckles, slow to heal lesions or any other indicators, and did not express any concerns about this, so I was really taken by surprise. They even sent a follow up note reminding me to schedule a full body scan. The website looks like a cosmetic surgery advertisement; tough to find the place to pay bills for regular visits. In conclusion, I have no idea if this clinician is any good; the total time spent in both visits was less than 20 minutes and although a treatment was given, a firm diagnosis was not made nor was preventive care recommended.

This appointment was better than I could have expected. They checked me in right away, I was called back before I could even sit down, and the saw a nurse and doctor immediately once I was called back. I was in and out so quickly, and received extremely kind and friendly treatment.

The longest wait time I've ever had at a doctors office. No apologies or explanation of the wait. Dr. Craig and staff were friendly but I only saw her for a few minutes after waiting over an hour. Disappointed with the experience.

Although very friendly, I felt like Dr. Craig was rushed. I got maybe 5 min with her, didn’t feel like she spent enough time explaining how to use the medications she prescribed, and the assistant went too quickly and ordered the wrong medication. I had to call the office the next day to get the correct prescription. Bottom line: it felt rushed and sloppy. Errors were made as a result. P.S. I’ve been twice and both appointments were this way.

Dr Craig was super knowledgeable and through. I was feeling anxious going into my appointment because I was there for a second opinion after not getting anywhere with my PCP. Dr Craig listened to me and put me immediately at ease. She was very knowledgeable and I felt like the visit was helpful and productive. She was everything you look for in a doctor.

It was quick but efficient. I was seen quickly, probably within 10 minutes of checking in. I had a yearly full body check of my moles and Dr. Craig decided to test two dark ones. The whole process was speedy but it seemed thorough.

Was brought into the room right away and the doctor came in shortly thereafter. The whole visit lasted less than 15 minutes (I had a minor skin issue) that she was able to look at and recommend treatment for. She explained why she was prescribing certain medications and I've already set up a follow-up based on her recommendation. Very efficient appointment- she went straight to asking me why I was there and all questions were restricted to medical info.

Friendly but rushed. Office’s microscope was broken so the doctor’s treatment was based on gut instinct rather than the specific cause of my skin problem. I ended up having to see a completely different dermatologist to get it taken care of.

Overall it was a great appointment. She listened to my concerns and was not hesitant to act, and gave me three prescriptions for my acne. I think they are already starting to work! It was a very quick appointment, I was only in there for about 10 minutes, and wish I could've asked for questions, but all in all I got what I came for and will be going back!
