It must have been God that directed me to Dr Hall, because she is wonderful. I was more than pleased with my visit and highly recommend her. Just based on 1 visit, she is my Dermatologist for life. When I deema professional as my "professional for life", then they epitomize the meaning of "Professional"! Per Webster "characterized by or conforming to the technical or ethical standards of a profession; exhibiting a courteous, conscientious, and gernerally businesslike manner in the workplace."

After seeing another highly-regarded dermatologist in the same building whose manner was distracted at best, I decided to switch to Dr. Hall. She saw me promptly, was thorough, professional and answered every question I had.

I was very pleased with Dr Shelly Hall and have already recommended her to other people. She was very professional and personable. She listened to my concerns and spoke to me at a level where I could fully comprehend what myissue was and how we were going to treat it. I am definitely making her my dermatologist.

Dr. Hall is extremely aggressive and condescending. She treated me like I was stupid and argued with my when I asked questions going against what she had suggested. She also argued with me that I had a much higher chance ofskin cancer (because I come from a family that has a lot of beauty marks but absolutely no history of melanoma, and I'm NEVER in the sun) and told me I basically needed to get all my beauty marks removed. When she did remove one mole, she dug so hard that I was in pain for over a week. One of her nurses was totally out of it. She nurse said it was the flu (why are you even at work?), but she was honestly acting like she was high. Overall terrible experience. Find a better doctor.

nothing wrong with her other than the 30 min wait past my appointment time. The nurse(?) that brought me back to the exam room mumbled and was very difficult to hear and understand as she was asking me questions.

Dr. Hall was great but the office lost my prescription and didn't follow up. I've called twice to see if they forwarded my prescription to a pharmacy and they never called back. I will not be returning.

Not very helpful, she could not determine specific cause of the rash on my legs. Treatment was nonspecific (try this and come back in three days). Her staff were courteous and caring, however, they did not follow through on calling theprescriptions into my pharmacist. The office hours are until 5:00 pm but when I called to check on my prescriptions at 4:50 I got a recording that the office was closed.

Dr. Hall came highly recommended to me, so I was looking forward to meeting with her. I'm a pretty mellow person, and consider myself difficult to rattle, so I have to say that I was really surprised by my reaction toher demeanor. In general, I felt that she was quite caustic in response to things I said about what was going on with me (this is my first visit to a dermatologist, so I admit that I wasn't sure how to answer some of her questions about what works for my skin and what doesn't - I've tried everything with extremely mixed results). At first I thought my reaction was in my head... but, over the course of my visit with Dr. Hall, I honestly got the impression that she was judging and chastising pretty much everything I said - the visit felt incredibly off-putting. That said, because she comes so highly recommended, I'm willing to chalk it up to a misunderstanding, and to come back for another try - I'm really hoping my follow-up visit goes better...

I have been Dr. Hall's patient for a number of years and I have received consistently excellent care. I have always been seen in a timely manner and Dr. Hall's "bedside manner" is great.

I made a last-minute appointment for a somewhat emergent situation. Eager to get it taken care of, I arrived an hour early and was seen right away! Dr. Hall was knowledgeable and competent. She is not the warmest person, but sheis nice. Her receptionist is VERY friendly and helpful.

I was disappointed with Dr. Hall's bedside manner. She seemed abrupt and somewhat dismissive of my issues. I even felt like she was a bit sarcastic during my appointment. I will not return for additional visits.

I went for a visit regarding hair loss. Dr. Hall laid out all my options, discussed the pros and cons of each one, and didn't leave the room until I understood. That was empowering and I think in the bast cases, can sometimes be a complement to treatment.

Appointment went smoothly and quickly, and treatment ended up being non-invasive. Dr. Hall was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions to my satisfaction. Dr. Hall's staff was also very professional and responsive. I arrived earlyand that's why my wait was between 30 & 60 mins - nothing to do with Dr. Hall's office! As a new patient I was "checked in" right away and entered into Dr. Hall's system without any issues. Plenty of reading materials to peruse while waiting, =).

Loved her style. Gave clear concise instructions, her assistant followed up with another round of clear concise instructions and gave written instructions for later. I liked her low key approach and that she didn't push a lot of high end products/medications.

She was patient and she listened. I don't have a complicated problem, so she only spent around 10 minutes with me, but she explained all the possible side effects to the prescriptions she was prescribing me, and she discussed different ways to alleviate my condition.

She was willing to remove a mole (sp ?) enbedded in my eyebrow. I tried two other dermatologist who declined to remove it. Because the mole was not malignant Medicare would not have paid for it's removal. I said I wouldpay for the operation. Dr. Hall charged me a very reasonable fee (less than the 2 previous dermatologist charged me for refusing to remove it!
