Dermatology reviews in Chattanooga

    Chattanooga Skin & Cancer Clinic PC II MD
    The skin check was complete, and thorough. I would likely have been uncomfortable having a male provider do this check, but Ms Cook was great! She discussed all areas of importance and gave some tips for caring for my skin that I'd never considered. She offered cosmetic help for a couple of areas (laser treatment of rosacea) which I declined.

    Davis, Dr. Allan E
    Check in window was very friendly and helpful.  Was called back to see doctor within 5 min. of appointed time. Wait in exam room for doctor to arrive was very very short. Bedside manner was very good. Exam room nurse was friendly and helpful. Very satisfied with the entire procedure and will schedule follow ups.

    Sad to hear that Dr Davis is retiring and closing his office Sept 2014

    Dr Mark Tusa has been specially trained in Moh's surgery, He did a very good job painless as possible and really cared and did his best to keep the removal as small as possible. I felt when I left like I had a new friend. Healing went well he cared and followed up my scare is minimal thanks to his care he was professional with an excellent bedside manner.

    Chung, Dr. John
    I searched for a physician that had a non-invasive treatment option for skin cancer. Dr. Chung's office uses SRT therapy. However they did not tell that it can only be used on certain types of skin cancer.



    I had biopsies on 5 lesions. The employee that called with the results could not pronounce the type, She told me MOHS was the recommended treatment option. I learned from contacting the office that Dr. Chung (unlike other MOHS fellows) does not reconstruct the wound. I decided to go elsewhere. I learned there are other treatment options. In my case, insurance would not have covered the MOHS procedure. A fact that Dr. Chung's office did not bother to tell me. When I checked on the prescription that Dr. Chung's office had written me for Retina-A to minimize precancerous lesions. I was told, and quot;I could pay the cash priceand quot;. Apparently they were not going to provide the preauthorization necessary for my insurance to cover this medication. The authorization was always done for me in the past by other dermatologists.

    Pickard, Dr. Clay
    I visited Dr. Pickard to have a spot evaluated on my back. The office was a bit sketchy and I should have left. He had received decent reviews, so I decided to stick it out. After the doctor examined the spot on my back, he decided he should do a biopsy, but not before asking me if I was a man or a wussy (but what he said started with a 'p'.) Good news, no cancer. Bad news, I'll never go there again.

    Because this office is highly recommended, I have visited three times. I was disappointed the first time, but gave them another chance. I was disappointed the second time, but gave them another chance. Well, third time is not a charm. The first time the NP removed a mole from my breast. Although I complained that I was still feeling a significant amount of pain, he continued to remove the mole without additional anesthesia. Oh, well. I thought maybe it was me. Second time around I visited because of a rash on my face. I asked for a different practitioner, but was told they didn't like to change patients to other providers. So much for customer service. Went back to the same NP who basically said the rash was my own fault for cleaning my skin too much. He was condescending, spent little time with me and had no recommendations other than to write a prescription. Ok. Let's try them one more time. After all, they're suppose to be the best. This last time I went in for a skin check because a family member has been diasnosed with melanoma. Having heard from others what a skin check might entail, I prepared myself to bare it all. I put on a gown and waited. The doctor arrived. He looked at my chart, looked at my back, looked at my chest and said there was nothing to worry about and quickly walked out. I was shocked. I didn't know what to say. Although I was pleased to hear those words, I guess I expected a better inspection of my body, maybe even a conversation about melanoma. Nope. Nothing. That is the last time I visit this office.

    Fennewald, Dr. Clarence L.
    DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR. Here are some reasons: One: Unsanitary practices. Washing hands is not a practice here. When addressing my wound, the nurse was not available. Fennewald hollered for the receptionist to come in to use her fingers to close my wound while he applied a bandage. The receptionist came in WITHOUT WASHING HANDS and pushed my skin together. I never saw him wash his hands. As well, his dog(s) freely roams the office. Two: Irresponsible follow-up practices. Stitches were applied following a small surgery to my forehead. When I returned to the office for the removal of the stitches, Fennewald did not examine the wound before removal, nor see me. The nurse removed the stitches without Fennewald laying eyes on the wound. Within 4 hours, my wound was hemorrhaging. Three: Self-absorbtion. Upon my urgent return, Fennewald came into the room to address the hemorrhaging, he uttered one word only: and quot;S***.and quot; No greeting. No eye contact. No conversation. Four: Inept bandaging. Because the stitches were removed prematurely, no new stitches could be applied; instead, bandages were required in hopes that a tape would keep the skin together to form a scar. Though the original incision was less than 1/2 of an inch, my entire forehead was covered with what looked like a kindergarten project. I returned in three days for a fresh bandage on my yet healed wound. (That is when the receptionist was called in to assist.) This time a tape was so poorly applied that it barely covered the wound. Five: Lack of professional integrity or care. Fennewald did not arrange any further follow-up, claiming the last bandage should take care of it. CONCLUSION: I have a scar on my forehead that looks like a gash that was never atttended to and left to heal on its own. I called to have him look at the final results of his work, but was never given the customary reminder call to come in. At this point, it is best just to leave the matter as advice to you: DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR.

    I am so disappointed in this establishment. They will not remove (do the minor surgery on little spots) more than one at a time. Phil Andrews says that he does not trust the lab to not get them mixed up. However, he sends all the test spots (biopsys) at the same time and must trust them not to get them mixed up. I think it pays them more to do everything separately. But, it costs me more. And, it drags out my recovery time. He didn't even have the courtesy to call me to discuss. The schedule lady called and said they would refer me to another Dr. These are not melanomas, pre cells.The other thing is that during my initial appt., I waited just under an hour. 1 hour is my limit, so i was close to leaving when he walked in. Of course there were no appologies. I don't understand the attitude there. There are a few nice folks, but lots not so nice.

    We were able to get in as new patients fairly quickly - had appointments for about 2 weeks after the day we called.. The wait time in the office was relatively short even though the waiting room was packed. We were both seen (one after the other), treated (skin tags, mole, suspicious spot removed), and out the door in just under an hour. We were impressed with the efficiency, yet also both felt as if the time spent with us was not at all rushed - all our questions and concerns were answered. The office also called with the lab reports in a timely manner.

    This was a great visit from start to finish. The office was well organized, gave me the new patient paperwork to complete on arrival. Once I had that filled out, I would say that I was called back to an examining room within 10 minutes and was seen immediately. I have nothing negative to say....I would definitely go back again!
