Very, very nice office staff. Everyone was so friendly and put me immediately at ease. Got in right away, no waiting. The doctor was very nice and knowledgable -- would highly recommend! Also had an appointment with the aesthetician, who wasalso very nice and gave me a cleanser that has made my skin clearer than it's been in a long time. Only good things to say about this doctor and practice.

I loved meeting with this very accomplished Dermatologist. He was very approachable, funny and knew what to proscribe right away. My husband's currently in medical school and his goal is to be a dermatologist; this man is a wonderful example and is exactly what my husband strives to be!
