I had to wait 45 minutes, when the doctor arrived she was extremely curt and did not want to get to know me. It felt rushed. She probably spent only 10 minutes with me, if that.

I was disappointed. Perhaps it’s because I made my appointment last minute but the doctor spent all of 5 minutes with me, the first 3 of which was her telling me what my condition was before she asked any questions. Sheprescribed me two medications instead of trying to first figure out the root cause. She was very knowledgeable, but I didn’t feel that she was hearing me out.

Lauren definitely was very nice and seemed to know what she was talking about. I will say that she spent legitimately about 5 minutes with me total and it felt super rushed. She barely looked at my skin before prescribing methree different medications, and didn't really bother to ask about my history or anything like that. I prefer a doctor who spends time with me to really understand my issue and takes time to answer questions and understand what is going on before making suggestions. My appointment was at 12pm and I had left the building before 12:11pm...

The center is very well run and Dr. Craig was generous with her time. However, I was a little dissapointed that the only options for treatment were topcial steroids and immunosuppresents - there were no viable alternatives presented be thatdiet or homeopathic, despite the center using the term "integrative".

Dr. Craig and her staff were very efficient about seeing me but very thorough. We made a game plan to alleviate the issue and scheduled a check-up to follow my progress. Her staff also assisted me with finding a place thatwould fill my prescription for a much more reasonable price. Definitely A+ for the office and staff.

This is the second time I've seen Dr. Craig and shes really the best. I had previously seen her for a body scan (for moles) something slightly more serious and she was great. This time I came to better my skincare routine and she had a number of great suggestions. Additionally her staff was able to provide pricing for doing any of the procedures in her office. Great service and good hours, thank you again!

Visiting Dr. Craig was a reminder why I book all of my doctor visits outside the District- even though I live here. The office was clean, everyone was professional, and service was prompt. However, I came in for multiple minor skinissues (slow healing, reoccurring ingrowns) and every single one of them she quickly nodded and wrote prescriptions for. She seemed rushed while explaining everything very quickly, and I even caught her nurse checking his watch every few minutes (rude!). The whole thing took 20 minutes form the second a walked in to when I left. I left feeling like she barely listened, barely even looked at my skin, an I left with 5 different prescriptions. Not for me.

While this was just a check-up, Dr. Craig spent no more than 5 minutes in my appointment and did not ask me any questions before prescribing 2 additional products. This is to say I did not receive personalized treatment to meetmy needs. She was very polite, but I felt like she was just trying to get through my appointment as quickly as possible. I will likely not return to this practice as a result.

Dr. Craig was professional and and answered my questions. However she had a male medical assistant (I am female) and I wish I was asked privately beforehand if that was acceptable, considering I was getting a full body scan and chosea female doctor for personal comfort. She performed a small biopsy on my foot which bled through the bandage I wish they put on a thicker/better bandage and/or was advised to try and stay off it.

My appointment felt very rushed. I was interrupted while discussing my medical history, she spoke very fast, incorrectly stated my medication history, and was out the door before I had finished asking questions. I then had to ask very specificquestions for the nurse to really go over the specifics of my treatment. I was given two prescriptions, one of which has been very challenging (potentially not possible) to get filled. I have called both the office and their pharmacy a few times, and they keep promising to call me back, but neither has.

From the front desk, to the pre- consultation, to the doctor’s consultation...... everyone was genuinely nice and polite. I was running a bit late for my appt. When I called to let them know, they were understanding and said it wasok, and they would see me when I got there. Before I left, we set up next years appt. and was told they would send there reminder emails....... and I need that:) I would recommend this practice to anyone.

I was happy with this visit until I got home 8 hours later and noticed a huge blood stain on the back of my shirt. I had a mole on my back removed but they covered it with a bandaid soI thought I was good to go. I'm not sure why they didn't tell me if the removal had stained my shirt or if they used too small of a bandaid and it leaked later, but I'm not pleased that I unknowingly spent the rest of the workday and a work dinner in a bloodstained shirt care of Integrated Dermatology of K Street, LLC.

I thought the care was excellent, however paper gowns and an uncomfortable treatment chair made it all rather awkward.

Great staff and Dr. Craig was very nice to talk to and listened to my concerns. Only complaint would be the wait time - about 45 minutes. They did apologize for that, and I would hope that it is not a regular thing. I'll definitely be going back.

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 wascorrect, 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.
