Sorry to be a "Debbie Downer" but I assume when you go to school to become a dermatologist you are educated right? I went in because I had a tiny little speck of a black thing on my cheek that I have been keeping my eye on. Dr. Vierra looked at it and decided to do a biopsy, 10 minutes later I am walking out with two stitches in my cheek. "I will call you either way with the results" she said as I left the room with a Nelly like band-aid under my left eye. A week goes bye and I am sitting in their office waiting to have my stitches removed. As she enters the room she informs me that is was an enlarged oil gland. An ENLARGED OIL GLAND! WhaaaawhaWHAT!? Come on folks, couldn't we figure that out before disfiguring my face. "Great, thanks" I said. Counting my blessings that is wasn't something else the assistant took my stitches out and haphazardly put another bandage on my face and sent me on my merry way.

Dr. Vierra's team is well organized and friendly. She's a good listener and was very perceptive in guessing that I wasn't having a dermatology problem but a hidden thyroid problem! I was able to get help faster because she was really paying attention to my symtoms.
