I was dissappointed in the operation at Dr Batras office. First, I came early and still had to wait 40 minutes while two others who came in after me went first. Second, the PA didn't really listen to my needs normake recommendations for solutions to acne. Just said keep doing what you're doing. Didn't write a script or anything. Third, I asked the front desk what to do next as I don't have any prescriptions for anything. They just said they would email me. Still haven't heard anything. Why say you're going to do something and then not do it? Follow through is a strong indicator of professionalism. I'm going to look for someone else to go to now. Not worth the wait.

Felt like she didn't really look at my face. Prescribed very expensive ointments I had to order from a special pharmacy.
