  • My eye lid surgery was easier than having a tooth filled at the dentist. I was awake the whole time with just one pain pill and anxiety pill. He used Novocain shot in eye lid so no pain and no need to be put out. No need for anyone to be afraid of getting rid of excess eye lid skin or bags under their eyes. Oh he got rid of my husband's "puffy" eye years ago too that always made him look "tired".

  • The front desk person was very nice. They got me in quickly. The nurse taking my history was pleasant and efficient. The good news ends there. I let the nurse know the two specific issues I had come in for. I also let her know that I was very nervous. She told me change in to a gown. This is the first time I'm meeting this doctor. It would have been nice to meet him for at least a minute with my clothes on. That is what other doctors have done with me in the past. But nope, nice to meet you, in my underwear. Anyway, Dr. Provider name locked. came in and it was wham, bam, thank you Provider name locked. . I know doctors now a days have to be quick, to see all the many patients they see everyday, I get that. But this was the first time seeing me. I had never been to a dermatologist before, it was all new to me. He read through a pamphlet about skin cancer in about 20 seconds and handed it to me. He quickly looked me over. He asked about the one area I was concerned about. Then started quickly telling me about his clinic before leaving. I had to interrupt him to remind him of the other area of concern I had told the nurse about. Just not a good experience. Left me feeling very insignificant. Won't be going back.

  • When I arrived at the Dr. Provider name locked. 's I was taken to an exam room by one of his assistants, and told to remove my clothing, other than my underpants, and to wait for Dr. Provider name locked. on an exam table.   I was not offered a gown.   I waited in my underpants for about 10 minutes for Dr. Provider name locked. to arrive. When Dr. Provider name locked. entered the exam room with a "scribe", he did so through a door where I was in plain view of anyone walking down the hall, including patients.   Dr. Provider name locked. did not introduce the scribe, or ask me if I was ok with having a scribe in the exam room.   Although there was a curtain that could have been used tp provide privacy between me and the scribe, Dr. Provider name locked. did not use the curtain.    
    Dr. Provider name locked. introduced himself quickly, shook my hand, and then proceeded to conduct the exam.   During the exam, Dr. Provider name locked. went over my skin systematically, stating the technical name and location (using technical terms again) to his scribe of each and every thing he found on my skin.   At one point, he found something which he said should be removed.   He did not explain what it was or why it should be removed.     If I consented to the procedure, it was so quick that it certainly was not informed consent. Although I am sure I would have consented if it had been explained to me, I certainly would have wanted to know what the consequences of the procedure would be.   The area was painful for a week after the procedure.    I am sure that this is normal, but I would not have wanted the procedure done at that time if, for example, I had an important event coming up in the next week.
    During the exam, with one exception, Dr. Provider name locked. did not address his remarks to me--instead, he spoke to his scribe in technical language.   The only times he spoke to me two times.  One was when he said that he could tell from my skin that I had spent a lot of time in the sun.   I responded that that was funny, because a medical condition had kept me out of the sun for several years.   He responded that he meant over my whole life.   I didn't respond to that, but compared to most people, having been a book worm as a child, and having had an indoor white collar job, and having been aware of the risks of sun exposure from a young age, I have actually spent little time in the sun over the course of my life.     The only purpose of Dr. Provider name locked. 's comment seemed to be to make me anxious about the health of my skin.   Indeed, if he was going to make the observation, he should have explained why or if it was relevant to anything.   
    When Dr. Provider name locked. finished the exam, he did not offer an overall assessment of the health of my skin, other than to say that he would like to see me for another full skin exam in 6 months.   
    I would not return to see Dr. Provider name locked. .   First, although a skin exam inevitably involves some lack of privacy, I have had a lot of medical procedures that require that I be completely undressed but I have never had one where there was absolutely no effort make to respect the patient's privacy--no offer of a gown, having me sit on an exam table in my underpants for 10 minutes in plain view of anyone in the hallway when he entered the exam room, no dressing to cover one part of my body while examining another, no separation between me and the scribe, no consent on my part to the scribe, who was standing literally three feet from me while Dr. Provider name locked. examined my genitalia in her plain view.   I am not a terribly shy person, but when a medical practice seems to go almost out of its way to fail to respect a patient's privacy, you have to assume that there is a reason for this.   My own guess is that Dr. Provider name locked. has figured out that the less he respects the patient's privacy, the more disarmed the patient feels, and the less likely the patient is to ask questions or fail to consent to a procedure. 
    As to the exam itself, Dr. Provider name locked. 's use of technical terminology, and his directing his remarks to his scribe, left me with no information or better understanding of the health of my skin, or what I could do to keep my skin healthy.   In addition, his recommendation that I should return for another exam in 6 months, with no explanation as to why, left me wondering if he had a concern about my skin health. 
    I decided to try another dermatology practice the next time that I got a skin exam.    The differences were remarkable.   First, I was given a gown.   Second, the doctor directed his comments to me, and put me at ease.     Instead of reciting to a scribe each and everything that he found on my skin, he described in general terms what they were, and also stated that they were absolutely nothing to worry about.    He also said that a yearly exam was sufficient.
