We really liked Dr. Sotomayor, she's been great, this review has nothing to do with her. But the people running the front office are not answering phones and are not returning calls. it's impossible to schedule an appointment or get yourprescription or simply talk to somebody. I already went a couple of time in person to talk to the current front office - they are really nice, but they know nothing and they cannot help. For more than a month now I have not been able to get my son the medicine Dr. Sotomayor has prescribed. I would not recommend this office unless somebody figures out what is going on in the front office.

The front office staff were friendly, and Dr. Sotomayor was competent and friendly. The actual screening lasted less than 10 minutes, and she gave recommendation for skin care products for my skin type. My enthusiasm was diminished primarily because I waited nearly 30 minutes in the examination room.

Rushed through appointment. She sat on her stool about an arms-length away and never got any closer during the exam. Never read what the nurse wrote down so didn't look at everything on my list before leaving the room. I wasso flustered at lack of bedside manner I forgot to mention items she didn't address in my appointment, so a mole was never looked at during appt. Finally, never called my prescriptions in even though they asked for my pharmacy and pharmacy number. I total waste of my time.

So easy! I made a next-day appointment and received a complete skin check and quick biopsy of an infected skin tag - Dr Sotomayor was thorough, approachable, and efficient, and the physician's assistant was great too. Very pleasant experience!

Although she was pleasant, she was not very diligent. I don't feel confident about my exam and will be seeing another dermatologist. I wish front desk people didn't always act like they are annoyed by having to deal with patients . It's not just here, it's widespread.

I would highly recommend Dr. Sotomayor. I had initial trouble trying to find a dermatologist who took my insurance who had an office near me. I got very lost trying to find the office, but despite arriving about 20 minutes late,I was still seen within a few minutes by the office. Dr. Sotomayor was also very kind and considerate, as well as thorough in her examination during my appointment. Very good!
