I was impressed with my first visit. I was placed in an exam room before I could complete the initial paperwork (about 2 minutes after I arrived). Within five minutes, I was being seen by Helen, the PA. Even though my appt was made for the PA (I had an urgent situation and the appt was made within 2 business days), Helen encouraged me to wait a few minutes to be seen by Dr. Dunn. She wanted Dr. Dunn to confirm her diagnosis.\n I waited maybe 20 minutes to be seen by the MD (without an appt remember). Dr. Dunn was pleasant, apologized for my wait, took her time examining me and asked whether I had any questions. Dr. Dunn has excellent training (UCLA Med and Johns Hopkins! for her residency).\n One other plus -- her office staff was extremely polite and engaged. They asked what I might need to be more comfortable.\n I would recommend the Dr. and her staff to anyone.

Dr. Dunn misdiagnosed my skin condition (numerous small papules on my face). After barely looking at me (and not very closely), she diagnosed it as eczema. I told her it did not look or feel anything like eczema, which I have in other locations. She insisted it was eczema, not acne, and prescribed a steroid cream. A month later, her physician assistant diagnosed it as normal acne, which was contrary to Dr. Dunn's diagnosis. I have now obtained another dermatologist's second opinion that it is steroid induced acne. Thus, the medication Dr. Dunn prescribed to treat the condition only made it worse. In addition, I have twice waited over a half hour to see her despite having an appointment. Further, her office has twice made belated attempts to get approval for visits from my insurer, leading to postponed appointments. Finally, after I called to have a prescription refilled, her office authorized refilling an incorrect prescription instead of the right prescription. I would definitely recommend going elsewhere for treatment.

Cons: Misdiagnosis, long waits, poor administration
