Dr. Smith was very professional and knowledgeable. He quickly and efficiently examined me for skin cancer and treated the problem areas immediately. Waited approximately 15 minutes to see the doctor.

He was quick and efficient!!! Had lots of suggestions, did way more than I had expected. Usually you see any dr. And you get to address only two concerns, not with dr Smith. He kept making sure I didn't have anything else, and asked in a very nice way. I have already shared his information today.

Dr. Smith had a very pleasant assistant who asked me about the purpose of my visit. The Doctor was very prompt, fast, and answered all my questions. I basically had the same symptoms I had in CA a few years ago where Kaiser HMO did absolutely NOTHING to treat my pre-cancerous "sun spots." Dr. Smith treated me "on the spot," and it didn't hurt "very much. The receptionist at the Doctor's office was very pleasant and efficient. I might add that I probably "saved time" by making my appointment on-line through zoo.doc in which I chose the appt. times. Everything at his office appeared to be efficient, knowledgeable, helpful, and thorough.

My appointment is a blur. Dr. Smith came into the room, I am pretty sure he shook my hand hello, but not totally sure. I told him about my jawline breakouts and that I just needed another Onexton prescription (my previous dermo is no longer covered by my insurance). He said we should try something else (don't remember name). I told him I had already tried that and it didn't work. He told me to try it in addition to antibiotic pills. Then he was about to leave the room when I remembered I was also there for him to check a suspicious mole growing on side of my nose. He was moving so fast, I almost forgot! He looked at it and all he said was that if I wanted to get it cut off to check it, I would have to go to a plastic surgeon. Nothing about whether or not it might cancer. Everything happened so fast, he left the room and I thought to myself, What just happened? What did he tell me to do/not do? It was seriously a blur. He could not get in/out of the room fast enough. He had the bedside manner of a flea AND did not prescribe me the meds I asked for, but instead chose to give me a med that I already said did not work, and was putting me on antibiotic pills! When I went to the pharmacy, I realized I did not want to go on antibiotics for my face, especially when I knew Onexton worked without antibiotic AND the medication he prescribed was not covered by my insurance, so I did not fill the antibiotic nor the cream. Then I proceeded to call Dr. Smith's staff and left a voice mail stating that I wanted an Onexton prescription not once, not twice, but THREE times before they called me back! HORRIBLE bedside manner by the doctor, worse I've ever had, and HORRIBLE response time by the office staff. I will never go back, nor recommend him to anyone. He needs to get over himself and check his ego.

There was quite a few patients on Monday when I went in for first visit. I had filled out my paperwork but thoughtlessly in an app on iPad. In hindsight I should've printed the forms before leaving my home, not because the office required this extra step but because I hate filling out patient paperwork by hand. We could not get the in app forms on my iPad into the hands of the front desk tech. I was given the forms to fill in then they had to input my info in between check in and out other patients So I waited about 30 min ...honestly I would've waited that twice over without pause to be seen by Dr Smith. HE CARES He was thorough, compassionate, and very considerate.

Filled out forms online, front of the house was ready for me with papers when I arrived, very friendly, Very clean, a lot of magazines. Great parking. Once taken into the room, it was maybe a 5-10 minute wait. Dr. Smith was VERY THOROUGH and answered all of my questions. No rushing. I felt genuinely cared for. Nurses were also very nice.

As soon as I check in I was told my appointment schedule March 16. I showed the email and text that sent to me by zocdoc my schedule is February 16 not March 16. I waited more than half an hour before I see the doctor. He was in a hurry to get out of the room. He only ask one question talk about 2 minutes and then his done. I will be back next month though let see if the experience will be the same.

I liked the doctor. Length of visit was short from wait time- talking to doc-getting prescription and follow up took all of 45 min. I like this-others may want more time with doctor. He was quite busy-

Best dermatologist I've ever had. Very thorough, good sense of humor, and willing to answer all questions. He's exactly the kind of doctor I was hoping for.
