Wish I had a better review to give... by
Lori Kelley -
I saw Dr. Keller for a few skin concerns. She questioned my family history as if I were not being honest. I've had cancer in my family, so I didn't appreciate that. I found her bedside manner to be very inappropriate. She cut me off a few times and was very blunt about my having cancerous spots that needed to be removed. Without explaining much, she grabbed a can to freeze the spots declaring that I'd be red for a week. I literally stuck out my hands and said, "Wait." I had an event that weekend and didn't need my face to be red and splotchy. I've heard good things about her, so you can make up your own opinion, but my feeling is that there are way too many great dermatologist in the Springs area to put up with this type of rude behavior. I've never taken the time to write a bad review like this, so I think that's saying a lot.
I was seen by Dr Trookman on two occasions and by his staff on another two occasions. I had had a skin condition for six years. I was given a patch test and it was determined that I was sensitive to a chemical in products that I was using on a daily basis. The service I received was professional, prompt and courteous. I highly recommend Dr Trookman and this dermatology clinic.
All medical practices should be this way! by
A happy patient. -
I saw the new physician, Dr. Emily Keller. What a personable, kind, knowledgeable doctor. She made me feel comfortable right away. I saw her for a skin condition that has been bothering me for the last month. She knew exactly what it was and provided care and reassurance to me. I am a little frustrated I waited to see a dermatologist. All is well. Thank you Dr. Keller. I would recommend her to anyone.
Highly recommend by
I saw Dr. Trookman at Colorado Springs Dermatology for a mole that seemed to be changing. He was extraordinarily knowledgeable and very kind. He spoke to me in terms that were easy to understand. I would highly recommend this wonderful practice.
Wouldn't recommend by
I saw Dr. Mentz a few times and thought I was pretty happy with her. But well, after I had a particular mole removed that had been developing a different tone/coloring around it- which she said she really thought seemed ok and nothing to worry about, but I asked her to remove and test it anyway- it ended up testing as "moderate atypical neevus." From how her nurse explained it to me on the phone, it wasn't cancer but could potentially have become dangerous and they had me come in for a punch removal to get all the affected tissue. After that, Dr. Mentz told me she wanted to see me again in 6 months- then she said no, in a year should be fine- to check on it. I thought my issue had been removed and all was well and good. Shortly after that, I began seeing a regular primary care doctor for the first time in a while due to me getting insurance. When this dr. found out I'd been diagnosed with atypical neevus, she explained it meant I was at a higher risk for developing melanoma (a dangerous form of skin cancer) elsewhere on my body and that it was important for me to start having thorough head-to-toe skin checks every year. Dr. Mentz had not informed me of any of that, and she never did give me a thorough skin exam when I was in, only looked at the specific things I was in to see her about. Neither she nor her nurse explained that the atypical neevus meant I was at a high risk for developing melanoma elsewhere and needed to start having thorough annual skin exams. I would not recommend Dr. Mentz because of this- she may not explain your situation and options thoroughly to you, resulting in you being unaware or having a misunderstanding of your condition. She also didn't like it when I talked to her about the itchy bumps I'd been having appear on my skin, when I was there for the mole removal, saying "When I schedule a procedure for a patient, I just allow time for that procedure."
Not a good experience by Jan by
I have a benign skin condition which causes many moles to grow on my body. Seborrheic Keratosis. They are fortunately not cancerous but they are unsightly so I occasionally have them removed. I went in to see Dr. Ginger Mentz and she was not only very rushed but I felt like I was wasting her time. She was unfriendly, in a hurry, offered to freeze a few for me and went through this procedure very quickly, so quickly that the moles never came off. It didn't work. It was a waste of time and money.
Highly Recommended! by
Dr. Sperber is one of the best doctors that I have had the pleasure of seeing! His staff is exceptional! I highly recommend this medical office for any skin issues you may have! I wish all doctors were like him!
The Best! by
Dr. Marcus treated me for acne and it was a joy to see her every couple of weeks. I actually looked forward to my appointment. She is very friendly and professional. Her office staff is also wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Marcus!
Great Dermatology Clinic by
I have seen Dr. Trookman several times. He is an awesome doctor and the office staff are very professional. I have also seen him for cosmetic procedures at Rocky Mt Laser Center and have been completely satisfied. I wouldn't go any where else!
Dr. Babcock and staff exceeded my expectations. He was a pleasure to see and very thoroughly treated me for foot warts. I am happy to say that they are gone. I will definitely go back to him if I have any other skin problems. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Very good experience!
