Verified Patient Reviews
it was better than expected for a physician visit. very professional office.
Dr. Ghiselli is amazing! I highly recommend her!
Dr. Ghiselli was very thorough and attentive. I felt that she took her time and explained everything that she was seeing and gave options for each issue. I will continue to see her for all skin needs. Thank you!
Very nice, made me feel comfortable, I didn't feel like she was rushed in the appointment.
My appointment exceeded my expectations. I was seen on time and had all of my questions answered. I highly recommend Dr. Ghiselli.
Visit exceeded my expectations!
Dr. Ghiselli focused on my daughter the entire time which I was very pleased with. Since my daughter was the patient I appreciated that she spoke directly to her and not to me. My daughter felt she was listened to.
Very personable and professional. She clearly explained the treatment plan and was very efficient.
Dr. Ghiselli was thorough, professional, personable and attentive. A HUGE improvement over past dermatology experiences. Highly recommend her.
She was fantastic and professional!
I liked her, was just unhappy with the wait time. I arrived 5 minutes before my appointment, but my name wasn't called until 25 minutes after my appointment time.
Dr. Ghiselli is an understanding doctor who listens to her patients' concerns. I always feel validated and understood after my appointments with her. She rocks.
What a pleasant visit..Dr Ghisell as adorable and just very easy to talk to...it was actually a fun visit!!
She was great. Explained everything to me. Made me feel comfortable and let me know my options.
The exam and instructions were clear; however I plan to ask for a written list. Her assistant eas taking notes, so I can get a copy. Treatment quick and with apologies for inevitable pain.Office will research wether Medicare pays for the "blue light" tratment the doctor recommended. I think their plan for 15 minute appointments caused the delay and needs sime adjustment.
I had to sit in the freezing exam room in a paper gown for 45 minutes before being seen. Nobody checked up on me or gave me updates. Once the MD did arrive, the exam was fine and she does seem knowledgeable. I think sometimes businesses in Stapleton know they don't have to try very hard because they're convenient. Also, would it kill a doctor's office to greet you and welcome you instead of always starting with "I need your ID and insurance?" I get that you're in it for the money, but I am a person.
I've been seeing Dr. Ghiselli for a couple of years and would recommend her to anyone. She is thorough and offers many solutions to my skin issues without pressuring me into expensive procedures. There are things that I would be embarrassed to talk with other doctors about, but Dr. Ghiselli is completely nonjudgmental.
Very informative about the reason I came in. Great personality and bedside manner. I apprecaite her apporach and would definietly recommend her to everyone.
She is great. She explained the procedure in detail and put my fears at ease. This is my second visit and I will continue seeing her in the future and would definitely recommend her to family/friends.
She was very thorough and professional. I appreciate that she went beyond what I had requested in the appointment to ensure that all of my needs were taken care of.
Very good. Made me feel much more confident in the exam than previous derms. I will be returning. The wait time was awful. I waited in the waiting room for 30 minutes and then in the exam room for 20. I think this was not usual, but I figure I should say something so it isn't overlooked.
This comment does not reflect poorly on Samantha Ghiselli but does reflect poorly on the medical office. My appointment was at 2:30. I did not get called back until 3:00 and then waited until 3:24 until the doctor came in. Everyone's time is valuable and scheduling appointments is not easy due to my own personal schedule as well as the office's schedule and availability of doctors. It is unreasonable to make patients wait this long. I would have preferred to receive a phone call asking me to reschedule versus having to wait and be strapped for my other appointments.
Dr. Ghiselli was prompt, friendly, professional, and made me feel at ease.
Very professional with welcomed recommendations on things that I could do for my skin (laser treatments, etc.). Not pushy at all. Great bedside manner. I'm so happy I went in.
Excellent. Informative. Very satisfied.
Very professional and apologized for being late which was greatly appreciated. I would recommend her to any friend or family member
Dr. Ghibellines was thorough and made me feel very comfortable in my first visit
I trust the doctors at Denver Dermatology. They are efficient, kind and thorough... I would recommend them to anyone.
She was wonderful.....lived her!!!!
Dr Ghiselli was nice and professional. Staff made me very comfortable.
Great- quick and easy. Dr. Ghiselli is easy to talk to and took the time to really understand the issues.
Very quick, Dr. Ghiselli talked me thru everything she was doing.
She was quick and to the point, gave me a few different samples to try and my skin looks so much better.
She made me feel very comfortable. I liked that she made recommendations and gave me options on things that I wasn't there to see her for. Most doctors won't take that initiative. Her assistant was very helpful in securing coupons for a prescription not covered by insurance.
Excellent. Dr. Ghiselli had a great bedside manner and treated me with excellent care. She was knowledgable and pleasant. Highly recommended.
Fast....but it seemed like she knew what she was talking about.
I would highly recommend this office and doctor. She was attentive and thorough, and everyone else in the office was kind and quick. Definitely found my dermatologist!
Great, felt comfortable and properly attended too.
Dr. Ghiselli was very helpful and matter if fact. She was able to give a quick assessment of my concerns and was even able to take care of some ore cancer spots right then and there! I would recommend her to anyone needing a dermatologist.
Dr.Ghiselli was friendly and easy to talk to. She listened to all my concerns and questions and gave detailed feedback.
Very nice staff!
She was thorough, engaged, considerate and easy to talk to. She gave me a ton of helpful guidance and made me feel very at ease.
I went in for the basic skin check, Dr. Ghiselli thoroughly checked for anything that might have been suspicious. I also had a large mole that was very annoying; she quickly and painlessly removed it with precision. Thank you!
First-class. Listens. Patient. Naturally pleasant.
She took her time, answered all my questions and was extremely helpful.
It was a really positive experience. She was through and gave me lots of explanations of what she was looking for. I was expecting to be scolded for being in the sun so much but was treated that way at all! I am recommending her to friends! Thank you!
Great! Very efficient and friendly office!!
She is amazing!! She is very knowledgable, friendly and very personable. She gave me samples and recommendations for products to buy.
Dr. Ghiselli, was very courteous, professional, most importantly, seemed very competent!! I came in with a very serious concerns regarding my skin condition and not only did Dr. Ghiselli make me feel at ease, she really went out of her way to make my appointment possible. Thanks Doc., I look forward to being treated by you and your staff again!! :) and I do hope your child is doing much better!! Thanx, Tuan
She was wonderful! Definitely fast as others have mentioned, but truly efficient and complete in the evaluation of me. I left her office smiling because she a) made me laugh and feel comfortable, b) she gave me her suggestions confidently and succinctly so that I already feel more optimistic and healthy, and c) made sure to schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure that everything was going well. HUGE fan!
I love Dr. Ghiselli. She's kind, not indimidating, and makes you feel comfortable. She's the only dermatologist I've ever had who has actually helped my acne and I've suffered with it since I was a teen! I don't plan on switching anytime soon!
My dissatisfaction is not completely with Dr Samantha Ghiselli M.D. at Denver Dermatology, it is with lack of security surrounding my medical files and the lack of professionalism with her operations staff. One of them was stocking me on the internet. This is the first Dermatologist I have seen so, I don’t have a baseline to determine the quality of care. I can only say that in the beginning my level of service was great. Dr Samantha Ghiselli at Denver Dermatology has the potential of being a great doctor. She was always very pleasant and seemed to be knowledgeable. The time spent with me was brief, which worked for me. I don’t equate the quantity of time spent with a patient to the quality of care. However, one major flaw that Dr. Ghaselli has is protecting her patient’s from the unprofessional antics of the operations staff. I had first discussed the matter of securing my medical files from one employee with Amanda Farrara, the Operations Manage for Denver Dermatology and she passed it off to Tym Johnson. Tym Johnson at Denver Dermatology is the office manager at one or all of the locations (it was not clear). I have never seen this person before or have gone to his location for any of my appointments. When I spoke to Tym Johnson he presented himself as if he didn’t know what was going on so, he asked me to explain it to him. I did and he immediately started down a path of confrontational statements. It was as if he knew everything and he just wanted to say NO but wanted to do it with a lead up and theatrics. It was at the point that he verbally offended me when t I asked who is boss was. He replied “I have no boss.” He said he was the CEO. Tym then started talking down to me so, I called it a day and hung up on him. In addition to his verbal assault, Tym Johnson has now begun to stock me on the internet. I have multiple logs of him visiting various sites of mine. He did this for over 1 hour. That is creepy to have a “professional” from your doctor’s office cyber stocking you. My request was not unreasonable, restrict access to your current front desk employee, whom happens to be my former employee. Privacy is everything when it concerns your medical records and I don’t want a former employee to have unrestricted access to all of my personal and medical records. There is a lot of turnover with front desk people. All of these people have 100% access to all of the medical and personal records. Not limited access which means name address phone to make appointments, but 100% access. (SSN, Date of Birth, Medical history, etc.) I have been told that they cannot tell you who access which files and when. They cannot limit or regulate access for employees to specific patients. This means that the receptionist has the same level of information as your doctor. I can see why there is turnover at the front desk. The front desk people can be very unprofessional themselves. I would hear the front office staff speak about other patients as banter. I would have to wait for long periods of time at the drug store to get my prescription filled because the nurse didn’t approve the prescription in the system. When you call the nurse’s line, you are required to leave a message and wait for a call back. 50% of the time I would get a call back from the nurse.
Dr. Giselli was exceptionally knowledgeable, courteous and polite. She made me feel comfortable to ask questions and was very thorough in her check up. My first visit will not be my last. I actually booked an appt. for my husband before I left.
I was completely satisfied! Dr. Ghiselli answered all of my questions and was very thorough. She was great at explaining everything she was doing. I will definitely come back!
Great, personable and knowledgable!
She knows quite a lot about available options, but she seemed to be in a bit of a hurry. She did take the time to answer all of my questions.
It has been my experience that doctors have a tendency to treat the ailment, not the patient. Ghiselli was not thorough, and seemed to enjoy hearing herself talk than take a moment to truly inquire. I will not be returning. If you're reading this, you are better off finding an office that has a long standing history, and not one that employs rotating door doctors. Good luck.
Dr. Ghiselli has a professional attitude which inspires confidence in her diagnosis and also a friendly personality that will put you at ease. I was in and out of the office in 25 minutes - and this included a minor procedure - 25 minutes! The cost of my visit would easily cost double elsewhere and this is important since I am currently uninsured. Doctors that know their stuff, are pleasant, and mindful of their patients need for affordable medical care is almost unheard of these days!
I enjoyed my visit very much. She was courteous, professional, and seemed sympathetic to my concerns. She was also sympathetic to the fact that the visit was not covered by my insurance company and waived a fee for a service, which was incredibly kind. I would recommend anyone to see her at DDC.
She was very efficient and helpful! I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Ghiselli was thorough, had excellent bedside manner and was so kind to answer all of my questions - she also provided me with TONS of samples to try! I look forward to seeing her again.
I switched over to Dr. Ghiselli because I wasn't really happy with my old derm. Had a great experience at the office and didn't have to wait to be seen. Dr. Ghiselli was thorough and took time to talk to me and examine me.
It was amazing! I feel like every doctor I've been to lately has been awkward. But Dr. Ghiselli was very polite, professional, and intelligent. She told me all the information I've been wanting to know that other doctors failed to tell me. She made me feel very, very comfortable.
Quick, easy and straight to the point!
Dr. Ghiselli was very thorough, made me feel at ease and answered all of my questions (I had lots of them!). I will definitely be back to see her again.
She was very informative. She was very friendly, welcoming and her staff are a reflection of true professionalism. Best experience I've had at the doctors office on a long time!!! Highly recommend Dr.Ghiselli
She was knowledgable and friendly and explained things to me in way that was comforting yet informative.
Quick and to the point.
Dr. Ghiselli had great bedside manner, made me feel like my concerns were valid, and took care of my problems immediately. She suggested treatment options for scars I've had for years that no dermatologist I've seen has recommended. I will definitely continue going to Dr. Ghiselli!
She was nice, but I felt a bit rushed and nervous about discussing my concerns and questions. It felt a bit dismissive or disconnected since I didn't have any major problems, and only with the MA pushing me to talk did I ask all of my questions. I may return, but I'm not sure.
SHe was very professionable, knowledgeable and friendly.. I would highly recommend her. Christie G.
I was completely blown away by her service. I went in for a check up on some moles and skin discoloration. Skin cancer runs in my family so I wanted to get checked out before it was too late. After talking to Dr. Ghiselli for a bit, she understood my concerns and what I wanted. She was prompt, listened and was very professional. Made my first trip to the skin dr very easy and as pleasant as one could hope for. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for Medical skin help.
Left very frustrated. Didn't seems to want to get to the cause of my issues, just wanted to give me some steriods and send me on my way. Not a good listener.
Paid a lot pf money for a 3 minite conversation. Other than that, all was great.
This was my first time visiting the office and I knew I wanted to see a female doctor. I chose Dr.Ghiselli at random from the website. The front desk staff was very kind and effecient and I felt welcome. I had to bring my sick toddler to the appointment and I was nervous about it. Dr. Ghiselli was prompt, thorough, and kind. She wasn't overly friendly although she did make my toddler a blow up glove to help keep him distracted which was much appreciated.
Dr. Ghiselli was extremely thorough, informative, explained everything she was doing so i understood, did not rush, and has a great bedside manner!
She is new doc to me and I plan to return to her as much as I need., Very thorough, listened and explained so well.
I love Dr. G! She's very friendly and courteous; however, what sets her apart from other doctors is that she always takes extra time to answer questions and address concerns (if you have any). She rocks.
She is great and I will return for further treatment
Very reassured! I'll be back in a year. I trusted her very much.
Waited for 45 minutes. When the doctor finally saw me it felt like she was in a huge rush to get rid of me... I didn't feel like my concerns were taken seriously :(
very friendly and personable. anticipated my questions and took the time to explain. I didn't feel rushed.
Very on point, knowledgeable, and efficient. Though she was pretty quick with everything she did, she allowed plenty of time for questions. I also appreciated how direct she was and honest with her diagnosis.
She was nice and discussed alternative medical options with me.
Dr. Ghiselli instantly made me feel comfortable, answered all of my questions and even gave me advice on other issues that were bothering me. I felt like I was talking with a friend. She knows her stuff and listens. What more can you ask for?!
