Most Improved!

OK, I don't know what the deal was with the other people on here, but I found my experience at Capital Dermatology to be very pleasant (as far as trips to a dermatologist go).This was my first visit to the office, so I arrived early for my appointment. And since there was a last-minute cancellation, Dr. Glassman was able to see me ahead of schedule. I was in and out of there in no time!The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, and they made me feel very comfortable when dealing with my medical issue (which I will not go into here).I look forward to my follow-up appointment and will gladly recommend Capital Dermatology to anyone and everyone!

Thank you Dr. McKitty

I visited CD about a month ago, because I had some minor problems with hyper pigmentation on my face. There was no doctor available to see me very early in the morning before I had to go to work, so I settled on seeing the offices physician assistant, which was a HUGE mistake. He didnt even look at my face. He just prescribed some very harsh and very expensive medication for my face and rushed me out of the office with a flippant attitude. There was a specific type of medication that I used in the past that worked for my skin. I told the PA about this medication, but he brushed it off and stated that the pharmaceutical companies just dont make it anymore.Well anyway, I started using the harsh medication and it burned my forehead and the area around my eyebrows. I had such a horrible skin reaction that I needed to go to the emergency room that weekend. The ER doctor discharged me and told me to go right back to Capital Dermatology that Monday. Thus, first thing Monday morning, I showed up and demanded to see a board certified doctor. Luckily, Dr. McKitty was there.She took the time to answer my questions and even listened to me cry. She was very caring and confidently prescribed the right medication to heal my burned face.Then about, a week later, I returned to her office and she spent about 15 minuted examining my face. I could see in her demeanor that she was in deep thought about what would best work for my skin. She then prescribed the medication that worked well for me in the past, to lighten up the scars and carefully wrote out a plan for how I should care for my skin. Apparently, the medication that the PA dismissed could still be made, it just had to be made by a medical arts pharmacy.Long story short, in just over a week, the burn scars have nearly disappeared and I have my skin back. I feel like myself again and can confidently look people in the eyes. I thank God for Dr. McKitty. She is a great doctor and knows what she is doing. I dont think I will see any dermatologist other than Dr. McKitty again.

Excellent first time visit

This was my first visit Dr. was great with a condition I have. I have been to many dermatologists over many years This was my first time feeling a Dr listened to what I had to say and actually made me feel like I was part of her goal to help me with my skin condition. I feel if I had to wait hrs it would be worth it. I came from out of state and I finally felt I have A Dr who I was happy with .So the hundreds of miles I travel is well worth it!

Not so great a doctor

I spent over an hour waiting to see Dr. McKitty and when I did see her she spent a total of ten minutes with me. When I asked questions she seemed put out by them and give me short snappy answers. She did take a biospy. However, the office left me a voice message to call them about my results. I called several times only to leave a message for them to return my call. If and when they called back they did not call the number I left on the message. They called my home instead of my work. So, I have been waiting for about a week to get my results.

Wonderful doctor

I have seen Dr. McKitty many times over the past couple years and she really is a wonderful doctor. She is knowledgable, no nonsense, and is a caring person. Sometimes she has been curt and the visit quick, but that's because she has a lot of patients. I have seen a lot of Dermatologists over the years, and the busy ones are that way for a reason... Because they are good doctors.
