Superb & extremely considerate physician

Visited with Dr. Calame via telehealth. Quick diagnosis and great treatment plan. Above that, she was thinking of me in between our visits. It's difficult enough to get most doctors to focus on you while you're in the room with them. So Dr. Calame's thinking of my pain and going the extra mile outside of our visits speaks volumes about the level of care she has for her patients. I will absolutely see her again and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Fantastic Doctor

Dr. Calame is one of the best doctors I have ever had privilege to meeting. She explained in detail what my medical issues were and she gave me multiple options on how to treat them and she allowed me to choose which option was best for me. Her knowledge of dermatopathology is untouchable and can't be compared to any other doctor that I know. She was extremely helpful and polite and I was diagnosed quickly and my appointment and waiting time was not long at all. I would recommend this doctor to anyone that asked.
