Excellent dermatologist. I have been going to Dr. Nasir for four years, twice a year and find him very thorough and thoughtful. He caught some precancerous melanoma that another dermatolgist had dismissed when I asked him about the growths. He always spends as much time as I need, explains everything without being alarmist. I've never had any problems with insurance and he is generous with samples. I would recommend him to anyone.
Money is more important than medical care.
This organization cares more about money than giving medical care! I went to see them for cancer on my neck a few years ago and medically they did a fine job. I had trouble getting the insurance company to pay and ended up paying $1000 out of pocket since Wake dermatology charges were so high. I worked for 90 days to get it resolved with the insurance company, and told the dermatologist office I was working on it - they turned it over to a collection agency after I had already sent a check for the full amount.
This year I have additional skin cancer on my scalp. When I called to make an appointment - they informed me they would not see me because of my poor payment history.
If you want to see a dermatolgist organization that cares more about money than medical care - this is the place to go.
Be careful who you choose to be your doctor. Dr. Nasir was very brief when he saw me. Maybe less than 2 minutes. He walked in, pulled out his magnify glass, and then began writing prescription to pills and topical gel that I have already tried. I told him I already have used these medicines and he said he is "Optimistic." That really ticked me off. I thought ok, ill see if hes right, hes the doctor. A real real stuck up doctor who doesnt care for his patients and about what they say.
Kind and Caring.
At the beginning of the summer I developed a horrible scalp rash. It was so bad that I could barely go 5 minutes without tearing at the skin on my scalp. Everything burned, and worst of all, I was losing hair by the handfuls. Being a woman, this was especially traumatic.
I went to my GP who prescribed clobetasol for seb. dermatitis - which didn't work. Then she sent me to a "dermatologist" who basically diagnosed me from the doorway (didn't even LOOK at my scalp) with the same thing and said there was nothing he could do for me - that I would have to suffer like this for the foreseeable future.
One day, in desperation, when I decided I could no longer live like this, I tried to find a new dermatologist. After calling around, I set an appt with Wake Dermatology. Dr. Nasir LISTENED to me, actually LOOKed at my scalp and took a swab of the skin. Then gave me some meds and set a followup appt. The first medications made things a little better, and subsequently they determined the swab was positive for a fungal infection.
These doctors in this office are kind people that are here to practice MEDICINE as a science. When they gave me the diagnosis and said I was curable, I cried. It was just a relief. They never once talked down to me or made me feel silly. But what I am most thankful for is that they have never let me feel like they were giving up. Always a followup appt made to make sure things are improving, with the assurance that if they weren't, they would keep looking for answers. I was never told I would be left to suffer.
I cannot express my gratitude for this caring attitude enough and would highly recommend their office t anyone.
Wake Dermatology of Raleigh NC...... Review. WOW - I never thought I would think of going to a Dr as a great experience, But Wake Dermatology takes care of all my families needs, and my personal PA Samantha Byrd-Connor is just AWESOME. She is intelligent while not being condescending. and very friendly. My wife raves about her Dr as well (Dr Turverson). Although we have moved further away from the office we wouldn't think about going anywhere else. If you are looking for a dermatologist for any age person I HIGHLY recommend "Wake Dermatology" .
Great Patient Care!. I have been going to wake dermatology for a few years now and love my PA Samantha Byrd-Connor! She remembers me every time I go in, and is always quick to respond with my results! She has a great "bedside manner" and a very comforting personality. I never dread going to the dermatologist because I know my PA is intelligent and will always take care of any skin issues I may have! I highly recommend Wake Dermatology!
Don't be a "new" patient or you might die of skin cancer first!. I had heard great things about this practice, however because I was a new patient I was unable to schedule an appointment until 7 weeks out!!!!! Its June and I couldn't even be looked at until August. Needless to say, I called Blue Ridge Dermatology and got right in. Very disappointing!
Best dermatologist in town.
I have been going to this office for quite some time. I saw and have been seeing Dr Tuveson. She is the best. She diagnosied me right away and does not hesitate to call you if needed. Who knew that there were Dr's that still called you at home to check on you. Best service I have ever had. You cant go wrong here
Thanks Wake Dermatology
PROBABLY SAVED MY LIFE.
I WENT TO WAKE DERMATOLOGY RECENTLY ABOUT A MOLE ON MY LEG. WHILST I WAS THERE THE DOCTOR GAVE ME A VISUAL CHECK UP AND FOUND A MELANOMA I DID NOT KNOW I HAD.
I HAVE SINCE UNDERGONE SURGERY - HAD IT NOT BEEN REMOVED I WOULD HAVE HAD A MUCH MORE GRIM PROGNOSIS. SO I RECKON THEY SAVED MY LIFE - NOT A BAD RECOMMENDATION IS IT ??
no wait, nice people, efficient treatment. I was in to have a mole checked. They were able to see me within the week. There was virtually no wait at all. Office staff were pleasant and efficient. I saw the PA--she was very nice and seemed knowledgeable and very competent. This is not a cosmetic dermatologist--so no need to wait for months for "real" dermatologic problems b/c practice is backed up with Botox appointments. Highly recommended.
