She's ok but I wasn't overly impressed. She prescribed a lot of expensive items not covered by my insurance. I really left no better off than when I came.

Dr. Madkan was very friendly, and I did not feel rushed by her or like she was in a hurry(I have felt that way with other doctors before). They gave me these awesome prescription cards too that made my RXs only $10! Great experience:)

This was the first time going to see a dermatolgist. My appointment was at 1 and I was taken back immediately. I scheduled an appointment to have an annual skin screening because I was very concerned about a mole that Had gotten larger. She helped make me feel at ease. She was very nice and took time to listen to my concerns. She removed the mole and I did not know she had even started. It was virtually painless. I will definitely see her again in the future. She is worth the 30 minute drive!

Hadn't been to the doctor in a while, hadn't been to a dermatologist ever. Had a good experience. She diagnosed my condition pretty quickly, I felt comfortable the whole time, and I'm looking forward to taking what she recommended and being healed!

She looks very professional and knowledgeable which made me feel confident. She's very nice and sweet. I have to wait at least one month to see the results of the treatment. I have great expectations. The only thing I didn't like she made me feel she was in a hurry. I really appreciate when doctors take their time to know their pacients and listen to their concerns. It's not that she didnn't listen but I felt she was rushing. Maybe this is common in US. For sure If the treatment goes well with my daughter and her skin heals I will recommend this doctor 100%
