History of melanoma, so high risk patient. Scheduled for complete skin check. Dr only glanced at front of body, no scalp, arms, back nor back of legs. Never even looked close at suspicious spots. Unbelievable disregard to proactive detection of melanoma. I don't think he even knows the ABC's (assemetry, boarder and color) risk detection. 2-3 minutes max spent on full body scan!

I will be driving the hour and a half for my own treatments. I will also be bringing my daughter here instead of wasting my time with my local dermatology practice. It is worth the drive.
