How was your experience with the doctor?She did a very good job but this was my first dermatologist appointment. It was a comfy setting and felt happy I made the appointment with her after

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Avshalumova quickly diagnosed an Eczema issue on my hands after one failure at another dermatologist. With Dr. Avshalumova, you actually get to meet with her directly versus a Physicians assistant. After almost 12 months of suffering with outbreaks and peeling hands, I have been clear for almost 3 months. She is accessible by phone for quick questions and was easy to work with on billing.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Avshalumova was courteous and professional and the appointment went fine. I had a mole removed for testing and was told that they would only call if it was malignant. After not hearing from them, I nonetheless wanted to get confirmation that it was benign. However, it was incredibly hard to get a hold of anyone in her office. I called several times and got only hold music. I also left two voicemails which were never returned. Finally after over three weeks of trying, someone answered and gave me the verbal confirm.

How was your experience with the doctor?Very thorough and great bedside manner. All staff was very welcoming and nice. They made me feel very comfortable expressing my concerns and asking questions. She gave me options for treatments, discussed the side-effects and expressed what she thought was the best option. Will definitely come back.

How was your experience with the doctor?The office is in a very strange location in the bottom of several housing complexes next to a veterinary clinic. I arrived ten minutes before my 12pm appointment for an annual skincare screening and filled out paperwork with two screaming children and their mother next to me. I overheard her saying she didn’t have an appointment. Guess who was seen before me? When I finally saw the doctor, 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment, she came into the room without introducing herself and asked me if I was ready. I will say she was quite thorough, even asking me if I knew I had a small mole on my scalp behind my ear. I agree with other reviewers that it felt rushed. I also found it strange that the receptionist kept my insurance card until after I was seen by the doctor even though I asked if she was finished with it twenty minutes after I l’d given it to her. Between the inconvenient location and her lateness, I won’t be back.

How was your experience with the doctor?My first appointment was fine, a bit rushed. No one there, wait time was 45 minutes. Didn’t answer the phone when I called to say I was running a few late. I went to a follow up appointment and the place was closed. The day before I got a reminder text to confirm appointment. No body answering the phones once again...weird.

How was your experience with the doctor?I don't appreciate doctors who dismiss patient concerns and rush you out of the office. It's unprofessional and shows they are interested in the $$$ & insurance. She took the time to listen to me.

How was your experience with the doctor?The visit was very closed off to the diagnosis that my prior dermatologist gave me for psoriasis , she even made comments about the color of my hair being weird because it looked like "new growth" her words exactly. I have been really discourage about my hair loss and also the excessive sweating she told me was just chills. the appointment was not even more than 10 mins never been to a new doctor and got out that quickly.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my second visit and I trusted the doctor to remove two facial moles. She took her time to explain the risks and different options. I felt like she understood my fears about a scar being left. She gave excellent follow up care instructions in person and gave me a sheet where they were typed up as well. She answered every question I had patiently and professionally. She gave me a sample of ointment to put on my wounds. I also like the front desk staff. My appointment was in a Thursday afternoon and nothing felt rushed. Her last procedure healed well so I have confidence that these will too.
