Dr. quotes a price to you and then when you go in for procedure he adjusts the amount to have a higher quota because you did not go with another procedure recommended. I was quoted a price of 420 for one procedure and 545 for another procedure and paid for only the $420 procedure on day of quote. I went two days later for procedure Dr Shoss asked if I was going to go with other procedure and I said not at this time later in the month. When I received the bill for the procedure it was now $735. Dr stated I asked for more done when in reality we spoke of cost and what I wanted done, got quote paid for it and then was raised. I will never go back again as Dr. is not honest.

Worthless Physician--Does not take most insurance

This dermatologist apparently enjoys a good reputation as a skin specialist. You wouldn't know if you don't bring a stack of credit cards or cash, since h thinks he SO great he doesn't have to take most insurance. His office staff are beyond snide and exceed all manner of rudeness. Get away from this dump ASAP...

What just happened?

This was the strangest visit to a doctor ever. It was a whirlwind. Wait time was very brief. Here is a tip: Whatever you want to talk to Dr. Shoss about, make sure you relate that to the nurse first because that will be your one and only chance to express to Dr. Shoss why you are there. And if the nurse doesn't make note of something that you say, Dr. Shoss will not be addressing that issue on that visit. How to interject a sentence? If Dr. Shoss takes a rare pause or a deep breath, better get ready to say or ask what you need. If you aren't dizzy by the time he is done speaking, you will be when he skillfully whisks you out of the room to the check-out person, before you know what hit you. The positive: If the appointments run on time consistently, his curt manner is a big part of why that happens. So after waiting over 4 months for an appointment, make sure that you are prepared to make those 15 minutes of his time count. He may not express everything that is going on in his wealth-of-knowledge head so there has to be a certain amount of blind faith on the patient's part in his expertise, since you likely will not be able to find any dead air time to ask a question or to receive clarification.

Will not return...

Appointment was rushed, did not look at issue I came for, no follow up appointment and gave me no knowledge of what I came for. Will not go back.
