I've been going to this office for a few years. It's pretty in-line with other Dermatology offices as far as annual check-ups. I should have seen the signs to change when first, I saw billing charges from a doctor there that I never saw. I was seen by a PA and charged for a physician visit. I handled that through my insurance company. Last year I had to go in for an issue and a small sample taken to be screened by a lab. Well, instead of results, I received a letter telling me my sample was lost. Apparently the carrier taking the sample to TENNESSEE lost mine and others' samples. (Of course the courier's associate blamed Derm Cons, so I still don't know what happened.) Then this year I used their ZocDoc system to book an appointment. I received all confirmation and even reminders for my appt. I showed up and I wasn't on their schedule and couldn't take me in. Now, my time is as important as the doctor's and I sent two messages to them with NO reply. They didn't bother to make it right and that was three strikes. I'm taking my business elsewhere.

I waited over an hour in the waiting room and then 30 mins in the exam room. I was on my way out of the office and they stopped me. When I explained my frustration, the MD said, "Well it just takes a long time to process you." - that was my last appt.

I have seen Dr. Pare and Lisa (PA) for many years and have been very pleased with the time I spend with them. However, I may try another practice because I (like most of you) don't have 1-2 hours of free time to wait on a 5 minute appointment. I'm usually called back quickly and then have spent over an hour locked in the exam room in my white gown waiting to be seen. It's a slow form of torture!

After the nightmare I endured at my last dermatologist pick, I had mixed feelings about my next mole check. But Dr. Bellamy at the Buckhead location was very friendly and thorough. I had 3 moles removed and the process couldn't have been more painless or quick. She also saw my partner at the same time and didn't seem the vaguest bit put off by us, which is always nice.

First of all, I used the office in Buckhead, not the Marietta office. I have used Dermatology Consultants for years with mixed results. However, lately the office would rather nickel and dime its clients than provide good service. Specifically, my son went in to have some warts on his foot removed. It seemed like a simple procedure. The PA spent two minutes with him and charged us $125. We paid for the procedure. However, the procedure did not work at all. We came back in to have it done again. It still did not work. However, the office insists we that we pay them again, even though he is not any better off than when he first walked in the door. This office does not believe in pay for performance. I would not waste your money with Dermatology Consultants. There are a lot of other good dermatology groups in Atlanta.

I would not recommend them for this service. I have received numerous treatments and had very little results. I would suggest you go to a place that specializes in laser hair removal instead of this. I have unfortunately wasted a lot of money using their service only to find that I need to go to another provider.

I saw Dr. Candance Kimbrough-Green to examine a few moles. She was very personable and thorough when talking to me about her observations. She needed to remove two moles and even after 2 days I have little/no pain. I would recommend her to a friend. I am really pleased with my first visit for laser hair removal with Melissa! She was patient with all my questions and was very knowledgeable. Two weeks after my appointment I already see DRAMATIC results, I highly recommend!

Lisa Berger, one of the PAs at Dermatology Consultants, is very friendly and does a nice job of quickly diagnosing a problem and helping work on a solution. I don't know about the other doctors and PAs, but I'm sure they're just as reliable. The only knocks are that it's a bit hard to find and also, it's a popular office so it can be a little crowded and you may end up waiting longer for your appointment than it actually takes to see the doctor or physician's assistant.
