"Dr. P is very knowledgeable. I like how she provides education on the diagnosis and also provides treatment options available for the condition. She comes off like a really good supportive friend. I initially felt uncomfortable about my skin concerns and she was able to assure me how normal of a thing which I am being treated for. I highly recommend her! My only regret is that I didn’t see her sooner!"



"Dr. P is great at listening to the patients issues when it comes to the issues pertaining to the patients skin. Dr. P was great at giving me a few suggestions when it came to my skins personal needs. Nice office setup as well. Knowledgeable Doctor when it comes to hormonal & skincare needs.
