Dr. Yvette E. Appiah's Ratings
Dr. Appiah is personable and, from what I can tell, knowledgeable. But the 45-60 minute wait time I've encountered the last few times I've been is painful (especially with a toddler!). I think the staff should at least be up front about the wait time with patients instead of assuring them they'll be seen right away when that clearly isn't the case.

I saw Dr. Appiah several times in 2011, which proved life changing, and for which I will be forever thankful. Prior to seeing Dr. Appiah I had seen so many dermatologists and general practitioners over many years, all of whom incorrectly diagnosed me with an unusual case of one particular skin condition, prescribed me pills which didn't work at all, and sent me on my way. Dr. Appiah was the only doctor/dermatologist who instead immediately suspected a different condition, and performed a biopsy which confirmed both her suspicion and the incorrect diagnoses of so many other doctors. Dr. Appiah then prescribed me creams that cured my symptoms, practically miraculously, after years of daily suffering. I am indebted to Dr. Appiah forever. Months later a different healer confirmed that the root cause of my symptoms (which were now being successfully treated with the right creams) was actually some combination of parasites (treated via medicinal plants) & a gluten/dairy allergy.

I'm absolutely amazed at the negative comments. Dr. Appiah clearly knows her stuff...graduated from top medical schools ( check out http://vahealthprovider.com/) and has the experience to recognize skin cancers at a glance. She is proactive preferring to biopsy rather than wait and see (in my case really crucial) and removes keratoses before they become cancerous. I personally think she has a great bedside manner although I don't require this....I think people (including doctors) generally react positively to positive people....it is hard to be friendly to the unfriendly. As far as waiting time....she's better than the average although the average isn't all that great....always consider that if you are waiting another patient may be getting some unexpected needed care. Definitely highly recommended.

All they care about is money!!! THey made it so obvious! But I wouldn't even care if the service was good, the receptionist is presuming and impature Ms Appiah herself came in 45 minutes late and didn't apologize until I brought it up and then was in a rush! Terrible, I will never go back

I had to wait an hour to see the doctor. Other patients were called in ahead of me even though I had arrived on time for my appointment. The doctor was rushed and not thorough in answering my questions.

Completely rude and really did not provide any options nor a shred of care for a few simple skin conditions. My office visit was really more about the Co-Pay and un-needed followup appointment.

Ok so lets start here....she is not warm and fuzzy...but that is not what i look for in a Dr. She is knowledgable...she has fixed my problems on both occasions that i have visited her. I waited about 10min in waiting room...and 10 once i was brought back. Overall if u want a super friendly dr she isnt it for you..if you want a dr thats knowledgable, quick, and efficient! Its def. Dr appiah

I was very disappointed. I waited 2 hours to see you and when you finally came because I was ready to leave, you only spent 5 hours with me and were pretty cold. I have acne mainly on my back and no major problems on my face except for blackheads and uneven skin (mainly darker complexion compared to the rest of my body). You prescribed 3 things quickly: Retin a micro pump, Solodyn 45bmg tablet, Aczone 5%. First of all, the young lady who came to supposely explain how to use all of the 3 prescriptions, did a an extremely poor job. She spoke too fast and her notes are so unclear! I have the note with me and would gladly how sloppy and inclear the notes are. I am still trying to figure out what she meant. I am also concerned about the oral pills as I feel that I may not have received the proper diagnosis. I do not feel like I have serious acne, except for my back. Those presecriptions are very expensive and I am not confident that they are the right ones for my condition.
