Dr. Ebede has amazing bedside manner and is willing to listen to your concerns. Unlike other dermatologists I’ve seen shelistened to my concerns and did not push other procedures on me. I came in with persistent acne and was looking for a dermatologist who was willing to prescribe accutane (tretinoin). I finished my course and my skin is back to normal. I can’t thank her enough for brining my confidence back!

I shall never forget my experience with Dr. Ebede -- it was truly one of a kind. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Ebede for a full-body skin examination. I am a black person who has never had any serious skin issues and had never visited a dermatologist. I eventually became aware of full-body skin exams through a white friend whose dermatologist detected skin cancer during a routine annual skin exam. When I told my partner (who is white) about my friend's cancer discovery, she too attested that skin screenings are not uncommon and are typically administered on an annual basis. With these facts in mind, I decided to schedule my first dermatologist appointment. I found Dr. Ebede on ZocDoc and chose her because of her high ratings. When I met Dr. Ebede, she asked about my concerns and I explained that I had no serious health concern but would like to undergo a skin exam to establish a skin health baseline. The doctor told me she did not know what I was talking about. I shared with Dr. Ebede the account of my friend's recent cancer discovery during a skin exam, and she looked at me with a straight face and told me again she did not know what I was talking about. I then asked the doctor if she would look at a small section of dry skin on my foot. It was then that she seemingly remembered that full-body skin exams do exist and told me she would either perform a screening, or examine my foot -- but not both. A second appointment would need to be made in order to satisfy both requests. I stared at the doctor wide-eyed and said "that's amazing". There was an awkward silence. Then the doctor performed the full-body skin exam and examined my foot, and sent me off with a prescription for a cream. I left the doctor's office confused and googled to confirm that skin exams are real. I also asked my friend and partner if they were playing a prank on me, and they averred that they were assuredly in earnest. When Dr. Ebede's office called me a year later for a follow-up exam, I kindly declined.

Terrible experience. I selected Dr. Tobechi Ebede because of the positive reviews and also because, as a woman of color, I thought that she would have more experience treating ethnic skin. However, my experience was anything but positive. While the facilty was clean and modern and the wait time was reasonable (there were no other patients afterall), I was more than disappointed with Dr. Ebede. As a patient, especially a new patient, I expected to be examined. This doctor simply read the form I pre-filled, asked what the nature of my visit was, barely glanced at the rash on my neck, prescribed medication and told me to come back for a possible biopsy if the prescription didn't work. I went to a dermatologist, a specialist, to find out what the expanding rash on my neck was. She didn't even touch the rash and barely glanced at it. I showed her puctures of what the rash originally looked like and that it had grown by 4 or 5 times it's original size and had actually spread across my entire neck. She gave me a prescription without even giving me a diagnosis. I don't even know what I'm treating. At least my internist took time to examine my neck during my annual checkup the week before. The entire "exam" with Dr. Ebede took less than 5 minutes.

I came in to have a large mole removed from my face that had been growing and growing. She said the scar from having it removed would be as tiny as the chickenpox scars right next to it if we didn't stitch it up and that if we did stitches it would be a big white line. So we didn't do stitches. Now, 2 years later, I still have a GIANT red hole in my face that people actually ask me about....they think it is a dog bite. Someday when i can afford cosmetic surgery to get it fixed, I will. I'm very bitter about it. She was very nice, though.

I came to Dr. Ebede for a second opinion. About a year previously, I had seen another dermatologist for a rash on my face that wouldn't go away. The previous doctor had told me it was a stress rash and that I just had to accept that, while running my own business, this would be my face. It was a dismissive and condescending consultation, and I left feeling deflated. I lived with the rash for almost another year before deciding to book an appointment with Dr. Ebede. From the first, she was warm, welcoming and professional. What really stunned me though, was that she took one look at the rash and diagnosed it-- as something easily treatable and not a result of stress. She was patient with my many questions, and helped set out a treatment plan that I could afford, as my insurance was ending soon. Not only did I walk out of her office feeling empowered and in control again, but about two months later my skin was the clearest it had been since I was a child. I wish I had come to her sooner! I would recommend 10/10.
