I liked the nurse and the front desk staff, very friendly. I think I spent more time waiting than the appointment its self. I wish he had spent a bit more time asking questions and figuring my history.

Dr. Nirav Patel is extremely kind and comforting. He's quick to get to the point but doesn't rush through your concerns like some doctors do. I'm not sure how dermatologist appointments typically go but he quickly examined my skin and seemedto immediately know what to prescribe based off of its appearance and my report of its condition over the past few years. I am excited to see what progress is made over the next few months in regards to my skin's health.

I was really putting off seeing the dermatologist and now that I’ve had my appointment with Dr Patel, I feel so much better. He went over treatment options with me and got a lot of things out of the way duringmy visit which some doctors might have spread out across 3 visits. He and Tina made me feel confident that I am good hands. Thanks!
