Ratings for Dr. Mary A. Yurko
Dr. Yurko was knowledgeable, answered any questions I had, and had NO problem looking me in the eye during my visit (contrary to another review listed below). She and her staff were pleasant and kind. When my surgeon referred me to her, I was worried based on these reviews. I can now say, I do NOT believe she deserves them. Take all reviews with a grain of salt - personality is a subjective thing. I had a great appointment with Dr. Yurko. She removed three questionable moles and took the time to make sure I'd asked any questions I have. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others. And after a year of cancer treatment (breast cancer), I've been around a LOT of doctors and medical staff.
Dr. Yurko arrived well after my appointment start time and seemed very rushed and uninterested in any of my concerns. Often she would not even let me finish stating what my symptoms were before interupting, stating there was nothing she could do for me. I had to ask her several times to just let me finish explaining. She then left the room without so much as a conclusion to my visit, I had no idea we were even done. I felt completely ingnored, it was a waste of my time and money. Even if there was nothing she could do she wouldn't even offer any advise.
Dr Yurko always seemed rushed, I never had time to ask her questions. She would disappear and leave me with assistants who couldn't answer questions. Had issues with acne for years and she kept giving me the same things that never worked. I finally switched to another Dermatologist, whom I love. They actually listen to my questions and concerns. My skin has been clear for over a year thanks to them. I would never recommend Dr Yurko to anyone.
I will not have a doctor that will not look me in the eye when speaking to me. Really dismissed my teenaged daughters concerns about her acne.I wanted to look at the skin care items they carry, but no one knew anything about them. Too bad. I am willing to spend a lot of money on my skin. Staff can't handle the phones and I get disconnected
Dr. Yurko was rude and unfeeling - eyes closed when she talks to you - could care less about cutting your face to remove something you ask her about - acts like you are stupid if you are concerned about scarring - which it did - considerably - nurses were rude and made you feel like you shouldn't worry about scars - unhelpful and unkind. Made me feel stupid for asking questions!
