The front office girl was very rude upon arrival. They were not professional at the front. I waited in the lobby 35 min after my appt time and in the patient room another 30 minutes. I had to step out andask how much longer. The doctor seems fine however i did not like that he didn't tell me what I was being treated for or what the issue was. He just gave me prescriptions. I still do not know what skin issue i have.

They were good, but I was confused as to why the nurse was nice but didn't introduce herself . Also I am a nurse too and found it odd that the nurse did the entire procedure. Also there was another womanin the room who I still don't have any clue who she was. Also maybe the "nurse" was an arnp, but who knows because she never introduced herself.overall I'm glad the procedure is done and over with I think they did a good job and they were all very nice.

I was very unpleased with my visit. I went in to find out if accutane would be a good fit for my acne. The ARNP walked into the room AN HOUR AND A HALF after my appt time, did not evenglance at my skin and just said she would prescribe it after I did the blood work. UM OKAY? Accutane is a very aggressive medicine shouldn't she have looked at my skin before determining whether I needed it or not? Not to mention she didn't even go over any details about the medication with me. I was told I had to get blood work but they gave me no further instructions on that. I don't know the whole visit seemed rushed and unprofessional

It was my first dermatology appointment in my life so I didn't know what to expect or have anything else to compare it to. I didn't like that 3 different employees took my information including the doctor. Nothing worse than repeatingyourself over and over!! Overall I thought the appointment was good, just seemed a little rushed which made me uncomfortable. I am going back soon so I will get a second opinion!

I had severe problem on my facial skin, I was expecting a lot from this consulting, it turns out to be great positive experience with Dr. Norman and staff. He makes your comfortable before talking about your concerns. He was apositive vibe for me, which was needed. You will get personal attention from their staff, overall great confident boosting experience. Recommend to everyone. The treatment and consultation is done with equality regardless race, religion or language. I am pleased. :)

Very small waiting room, which quickly became crowded. There was a bit of a wait, but later found out Dr. Norman had been delayed at another office. Dr Norman's exam and consultation far exceeded expectations, however, which resulted in my highlyrecommended/excellent ratings. He actually listened to what I had to say, and performed a more thorough exam than I had ever had done by any dermatologist. I very highly recommend him.
