visiting this physician was the best thing I could have done. we saw a local dermatologist in our area and wasted so much time, effort and money with senseless visits when we should have come to children's first. we were treated at this office with respect and valued and I can't thank dr. kress enough.
I felt we were rushed out of the room and not given enough information or the chance to ask questions.
they are always very pleasant and helping me when I have something going on
Dr. Kress did an excellent job of breaking everything down and explaining it to me to ensure I understood. My child has some sensory issues that could potentially affect the treatment so he also gave us a plan A & B so that we have options. I liked that he wanted to give the less invasive option a try first rather than jumping into the more invasive option which would probably be easier.
Dr Kress is very thorough and explains things well !
Dr. Kress is always very understandable and detailed in his discussions
Always a good experience with his office. Doc is excellent, very knowledgeable and explains on a common level. Friendly and approachable.
Dr Kress spends a lot of time and shows empathy and concern.
prescription was not sent to pharmacy in a timely manner and I was unable to reach the office regarding this matter
very impressed with how fast they were able to see me. also, I was seen very quickly and felt totally confident in the providers care that was provided.
Thr Dr was very nice. he knew exactly what was going on with my child as soon as he walked in the room. Ge explained every issue and what we were going to do about it in detail and then printed out instructions as well for me.

dr kres is wonderful. he cares, is knowledgeable, and always works to find the best solution to my skin problems
had to wait 30 minutes in the waiting room before being called back and then another 10 minutes in office room
Care was great, but we had to wait over a month to be seen. It was not an emergency but a painful mole that was somewhat concerning.
I would recommend this *doctor* to anyone who needs a dermatologist. He was very knowledgeable and exact in his questioning, diagnosis, and plan of treatment. I had been to the practice before and was not happy. I was re-referred to this particular doctor and could not be more happy with his work for my son.
Dr.Kress was very knowledgeable, but was very busy. He was patient to explain the condition very well.
she was nervous to go see a doctor for her issues then when she got there and the dr came in she wa fine.
Dr. Kress is a wonderful Dr. He spends a lot of time with you and makes sure you understand every part of what is going on. He's funny and kind. More Dr.'s should be like him.
Dr Kress provide new insight on my child's problem. we appreciated that he suggested a more natural approach to hopefully improve things. He didn't push medication, at this time, which we truly appreciate.
