He was a nice enough guy, but he seemed more of a treat with medicine and refer to the spa down the hall. Was hoping he would be more hands on. He didn’t touch or look at my skins my dermatologistback home does extractions and steroid injections with blue light and it works fantastically. Very different from home.

Dr. Tyring came in, did not wash his hands, and introduced himself. The first thing he did was look at the issue, and started ordering injections to be given without explaining what it was. Luckily, I’m a nurse, so I knewwhat it was, but it’s nice to keep your patients in the loop about their own care. He didn’t wash his hands before he left the room, either. When I asked him a question, he almost belittled me. I would not recommend him.

I think he is a very straightforward doctor rhetoric really respected the fact that I didn't want anything invasive for my skin problem so he prescribed me a topical cream. The only thing I didn't like was that he didn't eventouch my skin or examine it, maybe because of his extensive experience. But one thing I can say that the nurse was wonderful and very proffessional.

The Dr. was nice, however I got a bill from my insurance that showed how much the doctor charged my insurance. He charged my insurance a lot under "surgery" when he didn't even perform a surgery. I no longer trust going.

I had a great experience. Everyone was friendly and the organization was very efficient. Additionally, the doctor was nice as well as direct. For something that should have taken 10 minutes or less, they nailed it. Everything took about 8 mins.I would never hope for a skin issue, but if I get one at least I know a great place to go.

Dr. Tyring fixed the problem quickly and efficiently. He left most of the explanations to his nurse, who was extremely personable. I'd definitely rate her care a 5++ stars! I would highly recommend because of her. Lots of people in theoffice and (apparently) lots of patients. There was an air of competence and positiveness that I trusted.

Very knowledgeable and able to convey the diagnosis and medical treatment with clarity. Careful not to cause any alarm. Compared to other doctors I have seen, his consultation time doesn't seem like a "hurry up and get this over so I can go on to the next ...." Recommended
