the staff was great no complaints
we really like this provider. she seems knowlegable.
We love PA Lauren. She always takes time to discuss our concerns.
Lauren is wonderful. I look forward to bouncing questions off of her, and my daughter is very comfortable talking with Lauren as well. She's friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
Very good with the kids, down to Earth, and talks to you in a way you can understand
it was all good
Wait time at the office is way too long. We weren't seen until a half hour after our appointment time.
Lauren made my daughter feel comfortable. She was kind, informative and extremely helpful.
The provider and staff were equally very professional and knowledgeable.
professional and efficient as always
Lauren is patient and answers any and all of our questions. She never rushes us. She clearly explains everything that is happening and is good about documenting what/how the prescriptions should be used afterward.
Lauren is the BEST!!!!! She listens, explains and has a personality!
Lauren is great and makes our family feel special and appreciated. She remembers who we are and shows interest in the lives of both my kids.
love the dr!! would have liked the chance to schedule more follow ups since it is impossible to get an appnt. we waited 3 months! if it's a children's dr it should be opened after school hours. it causes kids to miss way too much school
prompt, informative, professonal, speaks directly to my teen and addressed all parent questions
Lauren is fantastic; we saw her regularly for our other son's dermatological treatment and were extremely satisfied with her clinical skills and patient care manner. She is always caring, friendly and thorough. We were happy to see her for this appointment with our younger son.
This was the first time we saw Lauren and we were very pleased. I will request her for future visits for my daughter. My daughter was very comfortable and felt like Lauren really listened to her and didn't minimize her concerns.
Lauren is great! very bubbly and my daughter loved her!
we showed up in the wrong day, by my mistake. the office was able to fit us in before lunch, by the help of the admin and provider. We have seen the provider for my other child and were very happy with her then, and even more now. Not only did she cut into her lunch to fit us in, but she is always professional, kind, and relatable. She helped to calm my son's nerves by explaining the procedure in detail and relating it to something he would understand, because she took the time to know him first. Lauren is one of the best providers we've ever seen.
Dr. was wonderful!
provider was amazing , talked to me and my daughter. very intelligent
wait time was ridiculous
Lauren is wonderful and the PA we always wish to see!
Lauren was very personable, and I was impressed how well she was able to focus her attention on my child while still communicating with me as a parent. Often doctors are good at only communicating with either the adult or the child, so I was impressed.
I thought she was fabulous! took time to listen to my concerns, engage with my son to make him feel warm and fuzzy, just all around friendly. I'm a HUGE fan of good customer service and she's good!
Lauren was an excellent PA-C
The office does a great job w/ taking you right away for appointments. They are also all friendly and knowledgeable. Just an A+ practice and doctors. Lauryn is really great!

after we were over an hour late the doctor still made time to see my daughter. spent plenty of time with us, even had another doctor come in. amazing service.
Lauren is great. She remembers Caroline, listens to my concerns and pays attention to my daughter. Excellent care and I don't know how she could be better :) We drive to Wexford from Carrick to see her.
Lauren was fantastic. Very thorough, professional yet friendly. I will be thrilled to return to her with my next child if required.
we saw a PA this visit. she is wonderful.
My child loved seeing Lauren and has asked to see her again! She was able to remove a mila from my daughters face which had been bothering her and other providers had not offered removal. (for a 16 year old, this is very important)
she was wonderful to deal with my son & I both really liked her.

Lauren is Fantastic. She takes the time to completely explain everything, and is extremely knowledgeable.
We love Lauren.

Dr Lauren is the best!!
She did an excellent job of engaging my child in the treatment decisions.
provider was excellent.. service was very fast, as was getting the appointment.
we have been going to Children's Dermatology for over a year now and everyone on staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable. I took my older son to this group a few years ago for similar issues and because of our past experience I chose them to go back to.
Provider was awesome! She explained to us what my son had and how we were going to cure it. We already made our next fallow up appointment with her!
Very kind and compassionate. Tried to ease my child's fears while providing excellent care.
she was helpful and excellent , appointment Was late due to traffic from an accident beyond her control
absolutely perfect Beautiful, wonderful, pleasant, kind, And angel on earth. No kidding! My daughter is still talking about it
Dr. Lauren was the BEST dermatologist I have visited. she was completely thorough and had excellent bedside manner with my child. we would schedule with her again over everyone else we have seen.
went well and quickly in and out of the office. my child was nervous and I only had to tell one medical person in the office and this was passed on to each provider throughout our visit. For me this was excellent communication of my child's needs.
My daughter (13 y/o) specifically asked me to make sure Dr. Gehris knew that while she loves Dr. Gehris, she really liked this provider and thought she did a great job.
Lauren was great! Very helpful and understanding. I can't wait to work with her to help my acne.
Lauren Mytrysak was delightful. My daughter felt totally comfortable discussing her skin issues with her. She was friendly and knowledgeable. She was spot on with her diagnosis. Elena's skin began clearing up immediately.
Lauren is great! We often see her when my daughter has her derm appointment, approximately every 3 months. She listens to our concerns, answers our questions, treats my 17 year old like an adult.
It was a great appointment, the doctor was wonderful!
Best pediatric dermatologist we ever had. Others we had weren't even sure about our baby's diagnosis and made our baby's condition worse. We are so glad we transfered to this service provider.
excellent job done by all
This provider was sensitive, honest and explained clearly all of the options available to treat my daughters acne symptoms. I was very impressed with how she interacted with my 17 year old. Lauren knows how to handle teenagers! Her professional expertise combined with her people skills make her an excellent physicians assistant. I will request her in the future.
We had a great experience. My daughter is only 5 and had to have a wart treated with liquid nitrogen. She was very, very nervous and the Dr's did an amazing job of calming her down and explaining exactly what was going to happen. I would highly recommend this practice.
