It was my first time at a dermatologist and Dr. Shayla and her staff were so welcoming and wonderful. I immediately became comfortable. Didn't feel like they were judging me in any way. I definitely recommend! :)
Dr. Francis is professional but informal; efficient; friendly; knowledgeable. Avoids mumbo-jumbo; is clear in her advice and instructions. A pleasure for this patient.
Staff was very kind and helpful. Shayla was so upbeat and so nice. I would recommend this facility to anyone. I was helped right away, quick visit, and she gave me exactly what I needed. I am definitely coming back!

Dr. Francis was so warm. She made me feel at ease right away. Her exam was professional and thorough. She gave me several options for further treatment, and even considered the cost. I have found my new dermatologist.
Shayla was great, she made me feel really comfortable and everything was quick and painless. The office was also really nicely decorated.
Cannot say enough good stuff! I was scared when I got there. All of the staff were extremly supportive and kind. Dr. Francis explained procedure, ramifications, and expectation of results. Absolutly spot on. Went home, comfortable and confident. Hopefully, I won't need to require her services again, but if I do, I cannot visualise going anywhere else.
Very professional, attentive & explained what the issue was & the procedure would be.
Dr. Francis and her staff were amazing! She was very informative and reassuring we would get my condition under control to make me gorgeous ASAP :) Just a heads up for new patients you will have to fill out more than the ZocDoc paperwork suggests so arrive early & with your medical card.

What a wonderful, caring Doctor. She took her time to answer all my questions and attend to the conditions I had on the spot. Plus she volunteers to help Veterans in need of care. No better Doctor than Dr. Francis!
