My first annual skin screening with Dr. Francis was super quick, easy, professional and (dare I say) enjoyable! I have a huge fear of the doctor and I was completely put at ease from the moment I wanted in an interactedwith the staff at the front, to walking out the door. Great practice, will be going here for all my derm needs!

I haven't been to a dermatologist in a few years and had a spot on my arm I was concerned about. Dr. Francis and her team were very professional and gave me a full exam, checked my areas of concern anddecided to get a biopsy. Dr. Francis explained that I would receive a separate bill from the company that does the labs (just like if I went to a GP and had blood work that was sent off) and wanted to make sure I understood the billing process before the biopsy. I said, 'Of course'. I loved the clean, urban feel of the offices, and the staff was very friendly. I would highly recommend Dr Francis and her team!

Dr. Francis was great. Listened to me and heard me out. Came to a good treatment plan togther. My only dislike was that she kept staring out he window and not looking at me. Maybe my case is simple and soroutine its boring. Not sure why but it was a little odd. Very happy otherwise.
