Unfortunate appointment

I made a appointment with this doctor after my regular dermatologist dropped from my insurance plan, she was in same practice and specialized in my condition. When booked i was told 4:20, when I arrived i was informed my scheduled appointment was 4:50. At 5:30 i was finally called to office (I had been waiting area at this point for 1 hour and 20 minutes). The medical assistant was very pleasant reviewing my history and my current issue, after informing her this was a regular 3 months check-up suggested by my former dermatologist she left room to inform Dr. Buchholz. I overheard the doctor questioning her the reason for my visit. she continued to ask questions that were clearly in my chart history. I decided to dress, the assistant asked me not to leave and advised the doctor i was going to leave, she instructed her to tell me she would be in shortly. I was exasperated with her lack of concern; the long wait etc. All questions she wanted answered before entering the room were in my chart. She even asked the assistant if i had any flare-up; well, that was the reason for my visit, if i could diagnosis myself i wouldn't have bother to make appointment. Even as she was told i was dressing to leave she made no attempt to reach out to me. I don't know the treatment she usually accords her patient but if this is indicative of her service I suggest you stay away, I know I will.

Worse Dermatologist

Dr.Buchholz, is a terrible, incompetent Dermatologist when to see her for a skin condition. I was never examined only by observing it she prescribed the wrong medication. Self intuition made me seek another Dermatologist After the second visit to the new physician it was a big improvement. I will never recommend her professional services to any one.

Incompetent

Terrible. She misdiagnosed me, not realizing I had cellulitis, and gave me a cream which made it so much worse. Infection spread all over my torso and was horribly painful. When I called to discuss, she refused to get on the phone! I just wanted to figure it out and treat it, but I guess she was too worried about lawsuits to worry about my excruciating pain. She put her Assistant on the phone, and I could hear Dr. Buchholz in the background telling the asst to blame me! I repeat, terrible. Do not use.

Very professional.

Dr. Buccholz was very kind, polite, professional. She answered my questions and didn't rush. I was in and out of the office in 1 hour. The staff are courteous enough but they do not return calls
