    The nurse and doctor team are super amazing! It truly was a very relaxed and informative visit. I was super nervous and their calmness made me feel better! Made an appointment to take my daughter! Thank you all so much!!

    Everything was terrific.

    The visit seemed pretty rushed. The doctor answered the couple of questions that I had during a skin check, but appeared to be in a hurry to get through it pretty quickly. I had some more skincare questions I meant to ask, and had previously written down, but with how hurried the doctor appeared to be I felt uncomfortable holding him up any longer. I really do appreciate how on time the office was running, and of course don’t want to take up anyone’s time more than needed, but wish I felt that I was given more than a brief overview by the doctor.
