  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

The doctor was very efficient and explained what was happening.
Aug 28, 2015
Dr. seemed to be a little bit in a hurry. Dr. didn't see any problems so he didn't address any follow-up care or preventive skin problem care. Basically said. He basically said my moles, etc., were normal and I was done. Dr. was concerned about mark I had removed a couple years ago and did spend more time examining that area on my cheek (face).
