I have been three times. During my last visit, the office was not busy at all and I was seen right away. I was finished 15 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. I had a good experience during each of my three visits. I certainly recommend Dr. Milburn.

Peter Milburn is the best dermatologist I have seen. I have seen multiple derms for my skin problems for years and none have been able to resolve. He diagnosed my skin condition and had my skin clear in about a week. He really does care about his patients!

Dr. Milburn is extremely thorough, and takes my annual skin cancer scan very seriously--documenting everything and watching for problem areas. After seeing him for about 10 years, he just recently recognized and removed a pre-cancerousmole very early on. I should also menrion that his staff is extrmely helpful with matters of scheduling and insurance.

Front office lady is great and very welcoming. I am sure Dr.Milburn is very knowledgeable about his practice, but I left this appointment wanting to cry. I was conflicted about treatment and just don't think Dr.Milburn was very understandingto my condition. I may return, but honestly, this interaction left me feeling like he just can't be very relatable to his patients.

Just visited Dr Milburn for s skin screening. He was extremely prompt, knowledgeable and had a terrific bedside manner. I like the fact that he is not a cosmetic dermatologist. Seems there a few of these doctors left. He has excellentexperience I'm very happy I found him. Would highly recommend Dr Milburn for real skin issues, and I will certainly see him again.

He prescribed me the priciest medications. I spent hundreds on a cream that didn't work and then when I went back he prescribed another one that was more than double the first. (and that is with the coupon he gave meand my insurance!) The pharmacist told me that doctors often get kick backs from the drug companies for doing this and that there are cheaper alternatives but I didn't have a prescription that would get me one. I refused to pay the so went to get a second opinion at another dermatologist. She gave me something that worked and was around the same price as a chipotle burrito.
