Verified Patient Reviews
On time, friendly, personal and most importantly, humanly-knowledgeable.
Great doctor, very professional and pleasant. Would definitely return
Great staff, very patient and kind, provided helpful guidance on how to better take care of my skin.
Dr. Ansell was fantastic! Her and her staff were very nice, but also very professional. A lot of dermatologists nowadays are disinterested in their patients. Dr. Ansell and her staff are the exception!
She's the BEST! Best dermatologist I have ever seen, gave me the best recommendations for skincare. I have been to so many dermatologists in the past who only wasted my time giving me different bad products for acne/uneven skin while Dr. Ansell's prescriptions work so well. I've seen so many results on my face because of her. The office is also great. There is barely any wait time to see the doctor!
Great experience easy and informative
She's super friendly, helpful, and to the point. What a pleasant visit! :)
Dr. Ansell was so kind! She made me feel so comfortable! She was also very informative.
I have already recommended Dr Ansell to all friends! Great experience!!
great doctor! Will come again
Awesome doctor and one of the nicest people I have met. Great bedside manner. Will definitely continue to see her.
This doctor is board certified and highly credentialed which is insanely hard to do in the dermatology field. I was lucky enough to go into my first appointment armed with lots of details and knowledge regarding my needs. Despite my situation, I quickly learned that she's highly perceptive and can whirl in and out of a room with the key info she needs to make an assessment.
Really nice, but very quick visit!
Doctor spend with me exactly 10 minutes. She came in, prescribed some medicine and that's it. I was surprised she didn't even ask my blood work, nothing. The diagnose she put was based on what I supposed it was. She didn't even try to analyze my problem. I felt that she is in a hurry and didn't want to spend time with me. I was really confused after that visit. moreover, it took them 3 days to send my prescription to the pharmacy. I had to call them 2 times until they did it.
Dr. Ansell was very professional and extremely helpful. She did a full body screening and recommended treatment for everyday care and prevention. She followed up the appointment with a personal phone call to suggest some additional tests to be done. Her care and attention to my specific needs and case were incredibly appreciated. I definitely recommend her!
Dr. Ansell was great! Her beside manner was excellent. She answered my questions and discussed my procedure in detail. The whole check in process was smooth and the support staff was nice and pleasant.
She is fantastic!
Lovely doctor. Thorough and wonderful bedside manner.
Clean office. Nice doctor and nurse
Wait time was about 10 minutes, which is amazing. But Dr. Ansell only spoke with me for about the same amount of time. I was hoping that I would get a more tailored appointment and discuss my issues in depth. She quickly explained the acne meds she was going to prescribe and I am just hoping for the best now that they work. As someone who's gone to quite a few derms for acne, they all seem to not talk in-depth about the issue, which is a bummer. Everyone in the office was very sweet though!
Dr. Ansell was very friendly and professional. Her office was also very organized and made the whole process easy!
Very clean office, extremely friendly staff and doctor, Dr. Ansell was able to answer all my questions
This was my first visit with Dr. Ansell and I must say that I was more than pleasantly surprised. Dr. Ansell is very personal and I felt at ease speaking to her about my concerns. She put me at ease right away by identifying the issue and recommending treatment. The staff was great, professional and courteous. I will definitely recommend Dr. Ansell to friends/family and visit her moving forward. Great experience.
Beautiful office, friendly and professional. Taught me about signs for skin cancer. Perfect visit.
Super Cool. Great office, awesome location. Nice Staff!
Very professional and very friendly. Everything was very smooth and fast.
I went to Dr. Ansell for an annual skin screening. I’ve only ever done this with one other Dermatologist before (who no longer takes my insurance) but the process was drastically different. My previous dermatologist’s examination was super thorough. She literally looked at every inch of my skin with a lighted magnified glass- prudently so as she had found and removed a mole that tested abnormal. Dr. Ansell on the other hand quickly reviewed everything - almost without even really removing my gown. She didn’t even really look at my scalp which I found weird as I know that can be a popular place for skin cancer. I have no idea which experience is more normal but I definitely felt more assured with my first dermatologist. Dr. Ansell was very nice and smiley but I’m not going to go back or recommend her because if I had a problem, I’m not sure she would’ve caught it.
She was great! Excellent bed side manner, professional, really made me feel at ease and in the loop about what was going on. Really great experience.
She’s awesome. Knowledgeable kind and compassionate.
Made me feel super comfortable, and would recommend!
My appointment with Dr. Ansell was excellent! She was very friendly and respectful, got straight to the point, took into consideration all of my feedback, and provided me with multiple solutions to my problems. The office itself was lovely and had a very pleasant yet professional feel to it. Wait time was zero. I couldn't recommend her more!
Dr. Ansell was extremely professional, friendly, and kind. She performed my skin screening very quickly and with a smile, and made sure to ask if I had any questions when we were finished. Cute, stylish little office too!
Very pleasant to meet and very knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable during my consultation.

Dr. Ansell was fantastic! She took her time with me and I was able to get a lot out of the appointment. I will 100% go back.
So nice and helpful!
Amazing. Lovely. Personable.
Dr. Leah Ansell was incredibly friendly and made my visit pleasant and easy. She was detailed in explaining what she was checking for and made sure I understood what she was saying. My only complaint about the visit is the receptionist who checked me in. Her tone was rude and unprofessional. Instead of explaining the office policies, she acted as if my questions and concerns were a waste of her time. I highly recommend Dr. Ansell, but beware of the receptionist with the collagen injected lips.
I highly recommend doctor Ansell. She greeted me with a smile and a handshake. She was very approachable and, at the same time, professional. She addressed all my concerns and gave great advice. I will definitely be coming back. Also, her office staff was very friendly and the office itself very cozy. It was a very pleasant experience.
Dr. Ansell had me in an out within 10 minutes. Very professional and courteous. Highly recommend. The front desk already had my insurance info pre-loaded so the check in process was smooth.
She was very kind and informative.
Dr. Ansell was great! She explained her thought process and why she wasn't worried about a particular mole. I learned some new things about melanoma and what to watch out for.
Dr. Ansell is the best doctor I have ever been to! She is so kind and informative and great at putting your mind at ease in what sometimes is a stressful situation. I recommend Dr. Ansell with no questions asked!
Dr. Ansell was amazing and super informative (especially cause I'm a bit scared of pain!) She walked through everything she was doing and answered all my worries. Her staff were all very nice and the space was super clean and modern.
Dr. Ansell was friendly, helpful, and answered all of my questions. I didn't wait long and the exam was very efficient, but thorough. I would highly recommend seeing her at GlamDerm!
I highly recommend Dr. Ansell. She was kind, professional, informative and provided the highest quality of care a patient could receive. All around the best!
I came because of a suspicious mole. I appreciated that Dr. Ansell walked me through the entire skin check, informing me of everything she saw. This was a welcome change from doctors who tend to only provide you the minimum information you need to know. She was very friendly and professional, as well as reassuring. Highly recommended!
Dr. Ansell was great! Super professional and very personable. Would absolutely book again for any of my dermatological needs. However, I am having a ton trouble getting my prescription sent to my preferred pharmacy. I've called about a half-dozen times to get this adjusted, but each time I've called, I've been pushed to utilize a delivery service instead. Which is a bit inconvenient for me. After insisting that I am happy picking it up, I've been told that they will make the update by end of day; but it doesn't seem like they are doing so. When I do call again to check on the status the next day, I get pushed again to utilize the delivery service. This process has been repeated a couple times over the last few days, unfortunately.
Overall great, although they did forget about me in the room after we were done : /
so kind and listened to all of questions/concerns!
Pretty office, friendly and knowledgeable staff!
I arrived 15 min early for my appointment and was assisted almost immediately. Dr. Ansell is so professional and pleasant. She made sure I was comfortable and answered all of my questions. She was able to diagnose me immediately. I definitely won't be going to another dermatologist!
Such a short appointment felt a bit rushed. But very professional and nice
Fantastic experience! Leah was great and very kind. Explained everything she was doing and was very easy to talk to.
Leah is amazing, professional, and very personable. I have already recommended Leah to two of my friends.

Dr. Ansell was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely see her again, and recommend her to friends.
Leah was thorough and professional. Her team was welcoming and I felt comfortable asking questions and I got realistic and knowledgeable answers. I will definitely go back in for future skin checks, and if I have any skin problems.
Everything from the super convenient location, to the facilities to checking in/out, was great. She took the time to explain what she was doing and didn't feel rushed at all. She's very knowledgeable. I would totally recommend her to a friend!
Dr. Ansell was professional helpful and courteous. I also mixed up my schedule and showed up an hour early and they still saw me right away. Very appreciative.
Answered all of my questions, took her time walking me through treatment options and made me feel at ease. Highly recommend!
High quality care.
