Dr. Haseltine was very friendly and professional! Both she and her nurse, Valerie, took the time to listen to my concerns and answer all of my questions. All of my questions were answered thoroughly, and while she was thorough and quick,I never felt rushed to get out the door! Dr. Haseltine and the entire team seem very knowledgable, and she promptly addressed my issues, solving one before I even finished the appointment! A tip for other new patients is to know that you can easily fill out new patient paperwork ahead of time on their website, and that you can park either in the visitor spaces out front, or in the parking garage — and they do validate parking!

I was so upset about this appointment. My 8 yr old son was referred to this dermatologist due to a cyst on the right side of his forehead. This was his third appointment since he had already seen his doctor.. alsohad been to the er due to him hitting it and hurting but er decided that due to the placement he would need to see the dermatologist and gave pain meds. I made the appt at this office and was sent a email to fill out the information prior to the appointment. We came in at the appt time to be told that we would have to refill out this information because when you make the appointment an email will be sent to you but that's not for us. So now i kind of was confused considering this is personal medical info that clearly anyone was able to retrieve. However i refilled out the forms in the office. We sat for over a hour before someone seen us only for Ms. Mara who called in the other doctor to tell me it was a cyst. This was determined by looking and feeling it, which is what i already knew from his prior doctor. However the doctor tells me well we cant do this here he would have to go to childrens hospital because they cant do any sedation in the office and with his age he would need to be sedated. This made me furious since the appointment should have never been taken by the doctor due to his age and the location of the cyst. This meant i took a day off of work and paid another "not so cheap" co payment for a doctor to tell me the same thing "its a cyst" I felt like this was all an insurance plot since this doctor shouldve never been referred to me and your clinic shouldve never taken this appointment. I want my co payment back and i would never recommend this office

Doctor was very knowledgeable and nice. Office paperwork is out of control. I've been a patient since I was a kid and my kids and I are patients now. The doctors actually practicing medicine are awesome. The redundant paperwork just keepsgrowing (and we wonder why healthcare costs are out of control). Join the new millennium, save a tree and get a check in computer or, at least, auto-populate common data and ask about changes. I'd rather play the healthcare CYA paperwork game online.

Seemed extremely confident in the underlying issue; although, she seemed a bit hurried and eager to be done for the day (pretty sure I was the last patient on a Friday afternoon). Also, you have to listen quick, as she talksrather fast. I immediately started her prescribed regimen. Anxious to know if this combo will correct the issue.

When I made the appt to have cryosurgery on a pre cancerous lesion that I had already had biopsied, I ask the nurse who called me if I should wait until it was healed. I was told it was ok togo ahead and come. At the appt Dr. H decided that cream was a better option. I drive from MS for my appointments. Also, I need a consultation for cancer on my neck and I feel like this has not been handled well. First, I was told that Dr. Allen Lewis was the ONLY MD that could do this. I didn't get a call so I called and was told that I was not in their network and they had called to let the office know. When I called I was then told I was referred to Dr. Leblanc. I still have not received a call. When I was at the appt. I asked the nurse/tech? if the appt could be made before I left since I have not been able to make the appt after 2 calls to Dr. Leblanc's office. I was told at the end of my appt that the office had been notified and will call. I have already referred a friend to your office but this has not been the best experience. Hopefully, I will get a call this coming week.
