Dr. Dudley removed a wart from my shoulder and sent it for a biopsy as a precautionary measure and indicated I would receive a call from her/her office on Tuesday. It's June 1st and I still have NOT received a call from her or the office. The health care system is declining and I know it's not the doctors fault she is slotted for 15 minute appointments. I am not a wholehearted believer in Western medicine (thank God) therefore I do not generally see health care providers. I saw Dr. D. for a skin check and "bump/wart" removal.

The visit was great. However , after the visit was a train wreck due to the wrong prescription being sent to the pharmacy and taking forever to return contact about it. Lastly, saying they prescribed the wrong item since it's the same meds and usually cheaper...... Well, it cost 3x the amount of the correct prescription. Luckily my pharmacy went above and beyond to try and get me what I needed.

My appointment lasted around five minutes. Dr. Dudley raised my shirt and stated that I have body acne. I wished there was more testing or follow up to see why I suddenly have this acne. I paid a $50 specialty copay to be told I have acne. Well I figured that. The question is why do I have this acne. I asked and she stated it could be the weather.

Reviewed on January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Dudley is wonderful, however, the nurse that brought me in & took my medical history was not. She didn't greet me & seemed unhappy to be there.

Dudley spent only 5 minutes with me and hardly looked at the area I was seeing her for; she blamed it on weight and my clothing type without spending enough time to actually examine it. I could have saved the 60 dollar copay and went to my primary care

The only prior experience I've had with a dermatologist before was poor at best, so I put off going for years for a worsening condition. Eventually I had had enough, and decided to visit Dr. Dudley. I'm so glad I did! It has made such a difference! And not once did I feel ignored or brushed off as a bother like I experienced with my last dermatologist. Thank you!

I told the dr. that I came to have her examine a newly-appeared, rough spot on my back. She got me up on the examining table immediately and told me to lift up my shirt. I lifted the right side of my shirt by mistake. She instantly explained that it was nothing to be concerned about, gave me a pamphlet about the condition, and ended the appointment. After leaving the area, I realized that the spot of concern was on the left side of my back. I returned to the receptionist and asked if the dr. could check that. The receptionist complied, and I was taken back to an examining room. This time, the dr. asked me to remove my shirt so she could have a complete view of my back. She instantly diagnosed the second spot as harmless like the first, and left the room while I was still without a shirt, without pulling a privacy curtain across the door of the room, exposing me to anyone walking by in the hallway of the examining rooms.

I came for a bald spot on the top right rear of my head via recconmendation from my general MD. This spot has been extremely embarrassing. I waited weeks for this appointment and it felt like a waste of time and money. The Dr came in mentioned the area could be scared and may have been from an infection. Yet, that was the end of the visit no follow up or prescription. She wasn't interested in finding what might have caused the bald spot (even after I mentioned what I think could have caused the bald spot), just possible plastic surgery that could be done by an ear nose, and throat Dr. My general MD was more helpful than my Dermatologist Dr.

This visit for cosmetic. I had Botox and Juvet derma injections. This is the second time I have been to see this doctor. I am very happy with her and the care I have received. But I am concerned about the news she gave me at this visit. Which is the fact that Advocate will no longer hold any unused Juvaderm (that is within the expiration date) on future visits. juraderm can last up to 3 treatments, as it is too much to use in one visit. I can't afford to buy juvaderm and throw away what is left after one visit. this new policy has now forced me to go somewhere else for treatments. this new policy makes no sense. I am disappointed that I will not be able to continue with a doctor I respect.

Dr Dudley had me come back for a follow up which was completely unnecessary as I already had my results. For the amount of time spent with me and how little she cared about my overall well being she could have simply made a phone call which would have at least saved me the time I had to take off work and the additional co-pay I had to provide out of pocket. When asked if she could explain the science behind the biopsy results she didn't. She instead went out and copied a page from a book which was filled with medical jargon that I didn't understand. She's the least thorough doctor I have ever been to.
