FINALLY, a dermatologist visit where I have felt my concerns were listened to and validated. Dr Cayce and the nurse where both so nice and easy to understand as they explained conditions and treatments to me. I even got a paperto take home clearly explaining what I'm supposed to take/do and how often. My only complaint is that parking is annoying at this place, so give yourself time before and after your appt to deal with that.

Like most dermatologists I've seen, she schedules a million appointments a day and doesn't leave herself time to actually consult with the patient. She looked at and listened to me for less than a minute before she finished her diagnosis. Andthen she hands out a prepared form with instructions, so the treatment is not individualized beyond a few options on this form. She didn't take the time to listen to my questions and concerns or explain treatment options, costs, etc... I did my best to ask the questions I had, but I could tell that my questions were annoying her as she had the ticking clock of her next appointment in her head... Very frustrating experience, but even more frustrating that this seems to be the universal way that the dermatology industry handles business...

Dr. Rachael Cayce was very knowledgeable and was the only doctor (from the other two I’ve seen recently for the same issue) that took interest in the matter as oppose to dismissing my skin problem as simply an allergic reaction. Iwalked out of her office with hope to finding a solution soon.

I could tell it was super busy, but Dr. Cayce didn't let that effect her behavior when speaking with me. She took her time to ask me questions and really listen and then make sure I understood everything before I left.I really appreciated that since I've been to other doctors who seem to rush in and out and leave me feeling confused. Also appreciated that they were upfront about additional costs of treatments that weren't covered by my insurance so I could make an informed decision rather than being surprised when I checked out.

First time I met Dr Cayce, she made me wait 20min and expedite our appointment in 5 min but she convinced me to come back for Botox. So I did. My appointment was at 8:20am. After more than 30min waiting ina cold room where I was able to hear her chatting with a colleague/customer/friend I decided to leave. I am very disappointed.

Dr. Cayce is amazing. She was so warm and caring and really listened to my needs and concerns. My only criticism is their medical assistant/ check out procedures. I had medication that was being ordered through a company they use. That'sfine but as they tried to explain this process, I felt completely rushed to leave.

I checked Dr. Cayce's availability online and received an appointment the same day! The office is clean and the staff very polite and professional. Dr. Cayce examined me for moles and took the time to thoroughly explain in plain english eachone. She froze a few and surgically removed another for a biopsy. She is pleasant, patient and very personable. Since I don't have insurance and paid cash, she adjusted the rate for the visit. I would highly recommend her to any patient.

The office was in a strange building but was clean, inviting and comfortably cool. Dr. Cayce was awesome and reassured me about some skin questions. I would definitely go back to see her for further check ups or skin issues! Shewas also dressed up for Halloween which was an added bonus. :) Everyone in the office was helpful and kind and the people waiting around me were seen quickly.

Dr.Cayce is the most knowledgeable Derm I've encountered in ten years. She was NOT condescending nor did she rush me or try to push products/aesthetic services on me-which seems to be a virus infecting all wanna be celeb-skin doc offices thesedays. She also is a magician with a syringe. Not heavy handed at all-most people have no idea my face has been injected. She gave me solid dx and recommendations after a very thorough examination.
