Competent, polite staff. Nice office. However, don't shut me into an airless room, shut the door and leave me there - no mags, no updates - for over half an hour

I arrived 10-15 minutes before my appointment time and was able to fill out paperwork in less than 5 minutes. But then I had to wait almost an hour to be seen. Fortunately, I was eventually seen by the doctor andwas partially treated. Dr. Bright was very professional but straight to the point and not overly friendly. She was not at all enthusiastic and was not very forth coming with information that pertained to my concerns. I also found it kind of strange that she told me to schedule my follow up appointment at the front desk but when asked when to come back she told me whenever I wanted to. Huh? The office staff seemed very helpful and full of holiday cheer as they offered candy to patrons in honor of Halloween. My over-all experience was okay but at times a bit frustrating as I was unable to get all of my questions answered, I was partially treated for what I came in for and was made to wait so long just to be seen. I would cautiously recommend this doctor to others. But the office was okay. Maybe I'll request to be seen by a different doctor.

I've been seeing Dr. Bright for almost a year now. Initially came to her as I had an issue that no other doctors were able to properly diagnose and/or treat. Within minutes of seeing me, she was able to identify whatthe issue was and come up with a course of treatement. It's been slow and steady, but progress is being made. I love that fact that she's been willing/able to explain things so that I understand, answer any questions I've had, and is open to any ideas/suggestions that I may bring to her. I can't imagine anyone else ever treating me/my illness after her.

It thought she could've been more engaging. Told me about herself. Her thoughts about the issue i was there for and more informative. Seemed very uninterested.

The assistant that showed me to the room asked what I was there for and I explained my concerns to her. A couple mins later she returned with Dr. Bright. Dr. Bright spent maybe 3 mins in the room with me.This was my 1st appointment and I expected that we would go over my history and I would tell her my concerns. We did not and she did not examine me. She prescribed a medication for one of my concerns. She explained the purpose and the side effects of the medication to me and options if the medication did not work. This thorough explanation is the only reason I will consider returning. The assistant was very friendly and professional.

I met Dr. Bright for the first time this morning. I was scheduled for a consultation and thought I would come in, she'd take a look at my growth and send me on my way and schedule a procedure for anotherday. Instead, she says, Sure! I can remove that, no problem.! I explained to her straight-up that I'm somewhat of a fraidy-cat and do not do well with pain. :) She and her nurse took great care to give me a numbing ointment prior to numbing me with the needle. Snip Snip and I'm in great shape and good to go. I would DEFINITELY refer folks looking for a great dermatologist her way!

Arrived as a new patient after taking a chance on Dr. Bright based on Zoc reviews. The receptionist was pleasant, the wait was far less than ideal. I waited over 45 mins just for my name to be called. Even placedin the exam room was another 15-20 minutes. Her assistant was very nice and personable - she’s the only reason I’m giving this visit a decent review. Dr. Bright didn’t go into detail about any of my concerns, though it was addressed and resolved. It’s all about preference; if you want a doctor who’s going to converse and explain your condition, the procedure and prognosis, then Dr. Bright probably isn’t best suited for you. After a long wait, I figured the customer service would be better. Again, this was my experience.

She seemed knowledgeable and the appointment was quick. Her bedside manner was my least favorite part, but maybe she was just having a bad day. She was able to answer my questions and set me up with a new regimen thatwill hopefully help. The assistant who brought me back and asked me questions before Dr Bright came into the room was excellent, as were the women working at the front desk and the phones.

While the nurse was pleasant, I wasn't so comfortable with Dr. Bright herself. She seemed rushed and not at all interested in my concerns. I came in for a mole screening and acne consultation. She did the full body check inabout 2 minutes flat, but looked at my face for only about 2 seconds. No makeup was removed, no questions were asked about history, facewash, etc. I was given a topical gel to use with no instruction or additional information. I was told I needed a biopsy on a mole, but was not given detail on what exactly was happening. I was given an injection and next thing I know I have a hole in my stomach, with no after care instruction. I will not be returning.

I waited more than 30min to see her and when I finally did get her to see me, it felt rushed and awkward. I had more concerns than I brought up but because I felt so uncomfortable I forgot the otherissues I had. She did treat me for the concerns I did bring up but her overall manner suggested she really did not care to be at the appointment and just wanted to leave. I will not be seeing her again nor will I go to this office. My time is just as valuable as the physician, an idea this office does not seem to understand.

My wait time was minimal and the nursing staff that I came into contact with were not only personable, but very professional. The only downside...as a new patient, I felt like I was part of an assembly line - my appointmenthad to have lasted at the most, 15 minutes. Dr. Bright spent no time getting to 'know' me or my situation, barely made eye contact, didn't smile and 'friendly-banter' was non-existent. The triage nurse is the one who spent time talking to me and finding out why I was there. I can only assume that she passed that information along to the Dr. as she was walking in from her previous appointment. As I appreciate Dr. Bright's professionalism, I know that I'll be back. I've just decided that I will temper my expectations for any future interactions.
