Dr Joerg herself was really nice and explained everything really well, but the wait time is horrendous, and made the actualvisit with the dr feel rushed. I sat in the hot waiting room with no AC for an hour and 20 mins (AC was turned on after like an hour), and then was told to undress and waited in a gown for 25 minutes once in the exam room. I’m fine with wait times and know how things can be, since I currently work in health care for over 10 years, and I get that things can happen but if you work in a place that does procedures, I really think you need to build in more time for surprises and contingency. Especially some place where you are making an appointment to be seen.

I arrived at her office about 45 minutes early. The receptionist took care of me well. I could correct necessary skincare material while I was waiting for my appointment time. I was called a few minutes latter than my appointment time. Doctor was apparently busy, but she answered my questions well. I felt good.

Dr. Joerg was wonderfully warm, attentive, and thorough. I waited 1 hr and 45 min to be seen, and the staff apologized twice for the wait. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Joerg as a professional. I hope that the wait is shorter in future visits (this was my first time, and I know that every medical office has off days).

This is my 3rd visit and unlike the previous 2 visits, I waited over 40 minutes without being seen. I then cancelled the appointment, since it was taking so long to be seen. Also, the doctor prescribed a cream that caused the issue to get much worse. The doctor was always very pleasant and professional, but I will be going elsewhere in the future.

Dr. Jorge was great and so was her staff in person. However both times I needed prescriptions following a visit there seemed to always be an issue getting it filled with my pharmacy. They said they needed more info from the doctors office. My pharmacy and myself had called the office several times over the coarse of over a. week to get a prescription issue resolved. The physician assistants didn’t answer any of our calls nor return the voice messages my pharmacy and I left for them (even though they said on their messaging machine they’ll return your call within 24hrs) Hope I get my prescription

I've waited for an hour and 40 minutes for my appointment. Then, the doctor saw me for 5 minutes and looked like she's in an extreme hurry. Even though it was supposed to be my annual checkup appointment with dermatologist, I had to point out to some areas in my body that I had a concern about because she didn't really scan everything. The doctor was nice and probably very professional but I didn't feel like I got her full attention at this very short appointment that I waited for for almost 2 hours.

She wore these awesome futuristic goggles that made her look like she was going to weld off any skin problems. It was epic. She was really nice, thorough, efficient, and helpful. I really liked her!

This was my first time seeing Dr. Joerg. She listened, asked great questions, was kind and professional. I work in the industry and I always ask myself, “would I feel comfortable with my mom in his/her care?” And the answer here is YES. In fact I wish my mom lived here so she could have Dr. Joerg as her dermatologist!

Great dr + staff, very professional and quick and easy once I was seen! The wait time was pretty long though, I arrived about 15 mins early for my appointment and had to wait a little over an hour because the doctor was in another procedure. But again, everyone was nice and apologetic about it.

I waited about an hour to see the doctor, to be spoken to for less than 2 minutes. She did not ask me about my skin and made assumptions with a quick glance. She did not look at my skin but prescribed me with generic medicine to deal with my acne. I did not feel like a person, but rather just another patient she had to get through through the day.

Went to two incorrect addresses before arriving to the doctor office. The first address I went to, Zocdoc sent the appointment confirmation with the wrong address. The second address was an old address that the front desk gave me. Causing me to travel for an hour trying to locate the correct address. When finally arriving to the third and final address, wait time was about 20 minutes on top of the unnecessary travel time I’d gone through. Spoke to the doctor for five minutes.

I'm not sure what happened during my last visit, but it seems like something was off that day since I always find my experience with Dr. Joerg's office to be excellent. This time, the front desk staff were somewhat rude and yelled at me to come up to the desk, even though I was sitting right in front of them and getting up to speak to them. I was early for my appointment, but waiting in the waiting room for 30 minutes before being taken to an exam room, where I waited for another 30 minutes. It was like the staff forgot I was there. I called them with my cell phone only to hear the receptionist say, "i'm sorry. I'll go tell her you're waiting." The staff member rushed in and apologized saying she didn't know I was there.
