Her bedside manner was lacking and she gave me a quick diagnosis. It was rather brusque and it made me question the accuracy of her diagnosis. The treatment she prescribed did end up working, so it was accurate.

I had a massive pimple that she was able to resolve easily. She offered her direct contact information for me to provide feedback and stop back in for another steroid boost if the first one didn't resolve anything.

The doctor was in and out, seeing several patients at a time, and felt like she didn't really hear me out on my issue. I wasn't happy with her attitude towards my condition (she basically wrote it off, but I wasable to find another doctor and I'm it's 100% cleared out now.)

My appointment with Dr. Phillips was good, the office location is very convenient for me and the whole process took maybe 5 minutes. I got there around 10 minutes before my appointment to fill out paperwork, and seen a couple minutesbefore my appointment. I think I was with Dr. Phillips for maybe 5 minutes, she prescribed me some medicine and then I was off.

I saw Dr. Phillips several times over a year and a half and was always underwhelmed with the quality of care the and her bedside manner. I only returned to her so many times because I needed refills on my prescriptionsand it was easy to get an appointment that worked with my busy schedule. On several occasions Dr. Phillips was more than 30 minutes late, and she always seemed to be in a hurry to move onto her next patient. One time I had 2 different skin issues that I wanted to address and Dr. Phillips told me that she only had time to talk to me about one of them and that I needed to choose which one was the most important (she suggested I book another appointment for my other question). Additionally, I didn't find that Dr. Phillips was very thorough when I asked for an annual skin review. I would not recommend Dr. Phillips.

Checked in right on time - I waited 20 minutes before the Dr. Phillips came in to see me. She was straight and to the point. She stepped out to right a prescription and never came back (her assistant brought itto me). I had a few questions to ask but wasn't able to since she never came back.

Overall good appointment. I went for a mole checkup and she determined really quickly that it was healthy. Would have liked that she wouldn't expedite the appointment after that though

I felt rushed about the whole process. She did a quick mole check and a just looked at one more of issues quickly and insisted on making another appointment for something that would only take 2-4 minutes to discuss and diagnose.I would say overall I am not particularly impressed with the professionalism. Her PA was also unprofessional and had poor beside manner.

Dr. Phillips seemed hesitant to answer questions about the medicines she was prescribing (of which there were quite a few) and left the room abruptly mid-consultation. She spent very little time with the actual examination.

The secretary asked me what I wanted to talk about to the doctor, and I mentioned three quick questions that I had for the doctor. Then, the doctor entered the room asking me: "What is the most important thing that youwant to talk about today? Pick one". I didn't understand why I had to pick just one, and she insisted and insisted on that... "Imagine that you had to pick just one, what it would be?". It looks like you can't bring more than one issue in a single consultation. I didn't like the treatment, it was disrespectful and unprofessional. Never going back.
