Amy, the P.A., saw me first, and checked out the various moles on my back and flanks, and I requested the removal of two that bothered me. Then I saw the doctor who froze off a mole that had kept gettingitchy. And the P. A. scraped of a mole that bothered me. They both examined a small puffy place in my groin, and explained that a brief surgical procedure was necessary to remove it. I was pleased with their knowledge, clear explanations, and respect for me.

Awful doctor, did not take 30 seconds to decide that accutane was the only option-neglected to mention the MANY side effects. Refused to answer questions, very abrupt and careless.
