She was not aware of the reasons for my visit, despite providing them several times in registration. She was not very interested in me after I turned down cosmetic services. She is very capable, polite, and prompt.

I visited today with a skin problem that was making me very self conscious. The Dr. was very optimistic that my problem could be corrected in 6-8 weeks. What a relief!

I was disappointed that my appointment lasted only 5 minutes. I initially came for a check up on a suspicious blotch on my skin and advice on protecting skin from aging. I did not feel comforted that the perfunctory glance at my blotch was nothing to worry about and didn't receive information on aging other than a tube of retinol that I could purchase on the spot.

I have been seeing Dr. Holmes for years. I would refer her in a heartbeat, just as I was referred to her by a friend of mine. She is professional and she really shows she cares. She keeps the appointments concise and finds quick possible solutions to avoid wasting anyone's time. She also conducts her appointments with a smile. It is always a pleasant visit when I go to see Dr. Holmes.

My apt. time was at 3:00 pm. Usually this office is able to see me on time however this time I waited about 90 minutes before being seen. I suggest providing patients with updates as to when they will be seen so they have the option of rescheduling, rather than waiting around. Fortunately I didn't have somewhere to be until 6:30 pm

I was disappointed. The front desk staff was not very friendly. I signed in and waited. I was the only one in the waiting area. After about 15 minutes I was called up to the desk and asked for my insurance and ID cards. Then I was handed papers to complete! I completed the forms and thought to myself that I could have completed the forms sooner had they just been handed to me once I walked in. I returned the forms to the desk and asked if the forms were available online. I was told that the forms were in deed online. I commented that I wish the gentleman that made my appointment over the phone would have let me know. It would have saved time. I was called back shortly after completing the forms. Dr. Holmes and a young lady in “rotation” appeared relatively quickly. Dr. Holmes asked if it was my first time in the office. The doctor spoke very loudly and rather fast. Her observation of my condition and the reason I came in was very fast and not very thorough. She simply prescribe medication and a follow-up appointment. I had to review with her assistant the instructions since she went so fast.

Their office hardly ever runs on time. I've been back multiple times for biopsies for a mole that should have been a one and done appointment. The scar from that biopsy looks grotesque because it wasn't closed well. I had to call them back to make sure my results were clear from the biopsy and then follow up several times. I would not recommend them.
