We are a family of 7 and when our 4 year old had a dark mole, our old dermatologist was anxious to remove it. We went to Rock Creek Dermatology for a second opinion and met the P.A. Molly. She saidthe mole looked normal, explained why, took a picture and suggested we return in 6 months or sooner if we noticed changes. She suggested John Hopkins Pediatric Dermatology if we wanted a second opinion. We confessed we tried there but the wait was about 3 months. She said she had worked there and offered to call on our behalf. JH saw us within a week. Molly said they can do the surgery if ever needed but that we may want to consider JH since they have "good distraction techniques". How often do you see someone go out of their way for the patient's best interest, at a financial loss to themselves, as if it were the only course of action imaginable? We have now gone back to Rack Creek Dermatology with four other family members. Mostly we have seen Molly but have also had an appointment with Dr. Mitchell. They have both been very professional, polite, attentive, and extremely helpful. Moreover, their staff has been the same. Everyone there seems to really enjoy their jobs and interacting with patients. We drive 40 minutes to get there, no doubt passing many other dermatologists along the way, but It is well worth the trip!

The entire experience was wonderful - beginning with making the appointment on ZoCDoc. Being able to complete the forms in advance made check-in a breeze. I was taken back right at my scheduled appointment time, and Dr. Mitchell came in afew minutes later. Exceptional bedside manner. And, the receptionist was probably the highlight of the visit - so professional and friendly.

Dr Mitchell was awesome. Office was clean. She was super friendly and straight to the point. Did a quick but thorough full body skin check and offered to remove a concerning looking mole right there on the spot. When she toldme we were done, I couldn't believe it. Didn't feel a thing. In and out in less than 30 minutes. Will definitely go back to her for any future dermatology needs.

My visit was very comforting and she was really nice, definitely coming back! The only downside is that I was prescribed a cream and an ointment that the doctor did not specify would cost so much even after insurance. Next timeI will ask, although it would be nice to have known those details ahead of time.
