One Star

The wait time was about 20 minutes, but this Dr does not spend much time with her patients, she is a hurry to see the next patient so did not feel like she spent adequate time with me.

Great Doctor if you can tolerate the poor office process, poor diagnosis process and staff with the poor bedside manner.

#1) They don't send out reminders for appointments#2) The appointment clerk is like a robot and not afraid to say over and over that the Doctor is very busy and hard to see.#3) I was diagnosed with skin cancer and had one of the office staff call me. I felt like with a diagnosis of cancer that the Doctor should give me that news.#4) I was told that I had cancer and would have to have a procedure to have it cut out by a plastic surgeon. I was told the list was coming in the mail.#5) No list ever came. Luckily my friend gave me a referral and I git right in the surgeon.#6) They plastic surgeon took one look at me and offered to try a topical chemo medicine. So, I did not need the surgery to cut a huge chunk out of me.#7) I'm spreading the word to a number of my Cary and Raleigh friends about my bad experience. I bet they'll be more appointments available real soon.#8) They charge $10 to send me my medical file. I had my new Dermatologist call and get it for free
