My initial consultation with Dr. Lamel was great. She took the time to walk me through all of my options andmade me feel very comfortable. It's not easy having acne as adult, but she made me feel confident that her recommendations would work. Looking forward to my regimen!

I love Dr. Lamel. She is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and a very good doctor. I see her for acne and other dermatological conditions, and she always presents various alternatives and courses of action, laying out the pros and consof each. I was seen quickly for this apt, and I was also able to schedule it the night before. She addressed my various concerns and reasons for coming in throughly. She also suggested a good next course of action. She doesn’t rush me and has a very good bedside manner. I’ve seen her many times and she is consistently excellent. She also has great skin herself, which is always encouraging. I highly recommend her.

I actually really enjoyed the visit. Prior to Lamel I went to a dermatologist in Chicago who was really old school. He treated my acne with antibiotics and didn’t really focus in on my hormone acne. Lamel knew exactly the typeof acne I had and how to treat it. She prescribed me a medication that helps to block the hormones causing my acne. Overall a quick and good appointment. Recommended that I have my pores extracted which I thought was a good idea. She is full of knowledge when it comes to acne.

Dr Lamel was extremely helpful and took the time to truly listen. I've found over the years that many Dermatologists don't exactly take the time with their patients, it's usually very conveyor belt type medicine. But Dr Lamel was extremely attentive,and very engaged. I'm very happy I went to see her!

I never write reviews, but I have to share how amazing Dr. Lamel is! She is so attentive and caring. While many of my previous dermatologists were nice, I have never experienced such great patient care before. Dr. Lamel listened toeverything I had to say and I didn't feel rushed at all, she wrote everything I should do down so I remember, and she shared many prior experiences (of what has worked for patients and what hasn't) which made me feel a lot better! I wish I were living in San Francisco for longer so I can see her again! Thank you Dr. Lamel!

Dr. Lamel was really polite. However she barely took the time to listen to my concerns or even ask about my previous treatments. Right away she prescribed some new medication. When I asked if there were any side effects or concerns,she said she had already prescribed it to 10 more patients that day and not to worry about it. It almost seemed like she had a pharmacy deal for that medication.
