Courtney was great with my teenage son and discussing proper skin hygiene.
I felt like she was condescending. My son asked that we not make an appointment with her again.
The staff was able to get us in to see the doctor very quickly, when I called for an appointment. She gave us a spot that had just been cancelled by another patient. The doctor speaks very fast. She provided all of the information that we needed, and she listened very well, and asked if we had questions, but she spoke so fast that we had to really focus.
The visit was fine. She spent adequate time with us and answered my daughter's questions. She provided a plan of treatment that seems reasonable given the issue she was seen for.
Dr. Courtney was amazing! so kind, helpful, and really listened to my daughter. We will always try to schedule with her because she's the best we've had so far throughout our dermatologist journey.
entire staff is always professional and helpful
She did a great job explaining her professional opinion and how I could care for my son from this point on. She asked a lot of questions and typed up notes for his care for me which was SUPER helpful!
Provider was very efficient and appeared to address my child in a manner that was both caring and precise.
She was knowledgeable and personable
would have liked for the provider to look at my sons skin on his face she didn't do this
Courtney is always a great listener and really takes the time to answer all my questions. I've been seeing her for years now and am sad that I'm getting too old to see her!
Provider was very respectful to my child and spoke with her in a mature fashion. She was lovely and was very knowledgeable
As always, this office is professional and friendly. Courtney spent a lot of time listening to our concerns and explaining diagnosis and care for his skin issues.
providers were helpful and worked in a timely manner!
I love their office and all the drs.
Great doctors. The check out staff aren't the nicest.
Courtney is the best. I always request to see her at my visits. She has helped me so much with my acne problem.
She was great, thanks!
Love this practice and all PA's.
Courtney is always professional and thorough during my appointments and very easy to talk to.
I like this practice very much. The staff & doctors are great with my son.
Provider was nice, cordial, polite but spoke extremely fast and made the visit seemed rushed.
Courtney is a wonderful provider for dermatological needs. She spends plenty of time with us listening and asking questions. We have been wrongly scheduled in the past with a different provider and even after driving 45 minutes would not see someone else. Now we always confirm it will be with Courtney as we feel she is wonderful at directing our children's care plan. Thank you Courtney!
Love seeing Courtney but any of the PA's have been great.
the phone is always busy, can't ever get through. ridiculous. we waited 35 minutes in the exam room to be seen. ridiculous.
very caring and answered all questions we had. super friendly!
We were running about 15-20 minutes late and the Dr. waited to see us even though it was lunch time. She was very understanding and helpful. I would definitely go back and recommend this office!
Courtney utilizes a very rapid rate of speech. She may be perceived as disinterested or simply "in a hurry."
Two good things: I got lost on the way to the appointment and called, they were okay with us being 20 minutes late. I asked about changing a medication and they talked to me about the pros / cons of the new medication and current medication so we could make a better decision based on my son's needs.
Dr Geiger is very professional and relatable. Also very knowledgeable.
we were seen an hour after our appt time, which is always the case. once we saw the doctor, she seemed to rush us and get us out again. she hardly answered my questions and made me feel stupid for asking them.
was very helpful! gave us the proper products to take care of his scalp! we are so grateful!
Courtney is awesome!
Courtney Geiger was excellent at my daughters first dermatology appointment. I'd recommend her.
Courtney Geiger is fantastic. Always very friendly, happy, personable, and informative. Explains things perfectly including diagnosis, treatment, and procedures for getting the necessary meds. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the services of a children's dermatologist.
love Courtney!!!! she's the best
Courtney was very helpful, kind and knowledgeable.
Courtney was great with my daughter. She was very helpful, kind and knowledgeable.
Ms. Geiger is very friendly and helpful. She takes her time every visit we have with her and explains things clearly and concisely. She allows us time to ask any questions we have and answers them completely. I would recommend her to any parent looking for a dermatologist.
Courtney was very knowledgeable and explained treatment options in a clear manner. She was friendly and appears very passionate about her job and helping others. Always a pleasure seeing her and having her treat your child.
I appreciate provider's patience with us as we figure out the correct way to apply his medicine.
Courtney was the best provider we have ever seen from this office after 2 years of going there. She was thorough, she listened and genuinely seemed to care about my concerns. She is fantastic at her job as a provider as well as dealing with people.
she set up. a specific treatment plan and followed up on how it worked etc.
I had a wonderful experience at this location! our neighbors recommended this dermatologist and I can see why! Courtney was great to work with!!
We really like this practice. All the doctors are very helpful and are really good with my special needs child. They are thorough in his treatment and very patient.
this is one of the best doctors ive ever dealt with! very friendly and great with the kids! very little wait times for every visit so far!
WW LOVE THIS DOCTOR
very thorough; she asked my daughter questions and listened and respected her answers.
On Accutane. thought I would see more improvement after 4months so not happy. Dr said I may to extend to 7 months instead of 5-6.
Courtney was great.
the provider was excellent
The doctors and staff were very attentive and polite, and most importantly, reflected high knowledge and expertise in their work. I feel very confident that they took the most appropriate steps in dealing with my son.
Very pleased with Courtney's service of my child
Courtney was just excellent. Very knowledgeable and intelligent. I really like her.
She was very attentive to my questions, and related well to my son and his uneasiness with the procedure being done. She was very patient and caring.
Very helpful.enjoyed working with her
I thought it was great how helpful she was about the prescriptions needed. I was able to get a sample at the doctors office and also tons of information about the medicine needed from a compounding pharmacy. It was very helpful considering I hadn't even heard of that. It saved a lot of time. She was also very easy going about treatment options when my daughter got scared about one of the treatment options.
always willing to fit in for appointment, and never have to wait!
she is a wonderful person.
She was awesome!So friendly and thorough!
So good. Treated us so well. I like how the office and care provider talked to my child asking him questions rather than automatically to me. That not only makes him feel good - it is a great way to gain understanding of his condition.
courtney is awesome! very thorough, timely and professional !
Elena was treated with great consideration of her feelings and concerns. She was listened to, acknowledged, and encouraged in her new treatment plan to address her acne.
doctor was very attentive, knowledgeable and explained everything in detail.
I like having my son see the same dermatologist, Courtney. I recommend her and plan on my other child seeing her as well. That's how much we respect her!
Courtney was very kind and knowledgeable.
Courtney was awesome and we were in and out so quickly!!
This provider was the BEST! I WILL be requesting her from now on. she was super!
The provider was wonderful. She was friendly, knowledgeable, answered our questions and made us feel very comfortable. She really knows her job and cares about her patients.
