I was impressed with Dr. Mara. I got there 15 min early to fill out paperwork, I was seen on time and i was out in 20 min., literally. So a total of 35 min for a new patient. I also got a good price on my prescription.

Dr. Kraus' compounding treatments have always worked for me. I have been coming to him for initial treatment then just maintenance for years now (2002+). The compounds are a bit pricey and many health plans do not cover it, fyi. Butthey are prescribed to my skin needs and always work (medicated face wash and creams). I do prefer he spend more time with me sometimes and ask more questions regarding next steps and what I need help with next.

I made the appt seeking an educational consultation rather than an immediate prescription to resolve my acne breakouts. I would have appreciated a more keen listener attentive to my needs and objectives. I'm sure he knows his stuff, however,his bedside manners could use some improvement. I had plenty of questions with hardly any time to address them.

The best!! He actually listens to his patients and gears his treatment toward that interaction. He has remedied a situation that has plagued me for 3 years within two months. He is the best dermatologist that I have ever had the privilege to utilize.

Good. Just with any other doctor though, watch the hidden fees. He was upfront that my treatment would require a monthly office visit but I didn't realize that it would also require monthly lab tests which also cost time and money.
