Dr. Craig was direct and to the point with her recommendations; she took a brief look at my areas of problem, and quickly riled off the prescriptions and routes she would take. The only issue was how quickly she did so- it was clear she was in a rush, and didn't really want to take the time to understand me/my lifestyle/and my issues. Especially given I was there to get help with an auto-immune disease, it felt it could have been a lot, lot more personalized, rather than a run-of-the-mill appointment. However, she did make some helpful recos and gave me prescriptions, was clear about prices and even helped when I was concerned about them. She answered my questions as much as she could without knowing my history, and I would probably go back. Just wish she could have been a bit more personal with me - I was clearly upset about my problem and could have used the support and understanding.

I really liked Dr. Craig. The same cannot be said for the front office staff. They were rude and very pushy about collecting a co-pay when my services should have been covered by my insurance fully. Further, they took my IDand insurance card and were rather rude when I said I would like it back before going back to my appointment. Acted like it was a huge inconvenience that I wanted them back? Was not a pleasant experience and was expensive considering she wouldn’t listen to me about my insurance. Recommend the doctor just not the office.

She was great. This was my first time ever at a dermatologist. I had a simple question. She succinctly described the potentials causes of my problem, recommended a course of action, and gave me potential treatment options dependent on the outcomeof a test. It's exactly what I needed. I was happy to have her treat me and I'll return next time I need a dermatologist.

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.
