Beyond Exceptional

My daughter saw Dr Sternhell-Blackwell after getting nowhere with a local dermatologist. I was amazed at Dr Sternhell-Blackwell's thorough workup & compassionate bedside manner. As an RN it is extremely difficult to impress me. However she far exceeded my high expectations. She was thorough in her explaination to both my daughter & I. She answered all of our questions. She never seemed in a hurry & took her time. My daughter needed further testing, in addition to a biopsy. Knowing we had made nearly a 6 hour round trip to see her, she arranged to have everything completed immediately onsite before we left. Her staff was also amazing, kind & efficient. I highly recommend Dr Kara Sternhell-Blackwell!

Five Stars

Dr. Nunley spotted an area on my skin which no one else had ever noticed that she biopsied finding atypical cells and she immediately sent me to a surgeon. Without her attention to detail this may have turned cancerous.

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE

Dr. Nunley is hands-down the best (and nicest) dermatologist I've seen. I had seen several other dermatologists for my problem without improvement prior to seeing her. The staff wer courteous, and she was a kind listener and extremely knowledgeable. She solved my problem after the initial visit, but took the time to follow-up and answer all of my questions at the next visit. I don't think you'll find a better dermatologist out there!

Out of control cost

First visit they didn't remove enough of a mole on my back. Had to return for a second visit. First visit was about 30 minutes and second visit about 45 total. Received the bill and the total cost was over $3500. After insurance we are being asked to pay $1800 out of pocket. How can you feel good about these type of charges?
