Ratings for Dr. Nicole P. Kageyama
I had an 11:00 appointmet. I entered the Dr's. office at 10:58, checked in and was told to sit and wait. After 20 minites of waiting and having 3 other patients walk in and get taken in after a very short 3 to 8 minute wait while I continued to wait, I got up and asked the recptionist to reschedule me for another day because the Dr. was obviously behind schedule and I could not afford to sit an wait while they took patients in that came in after I did. I was told that I could see the PA immediatly or continue to wait another 15 minutes to see the Dr. I said I would see the PA. I was immediatly led to a back room where a clerk took some information and left the room. I waited another 15 minutes for the PA to show up. She never did, so I got up and walked out to the reception room and told the receptioinist that the PA didn't show up and that I would go and find a doctor that would keep their appointments. I will not go back to Dr. Kageyama. She should make her late's reschedule
I cannot recommend North Pacific Dermatology after my initial visit to their Renton office. After a 30 minute drive, I arrived at their office for an 11:30am appointment five minutes late due to traffic. Once in the office I waited in line while the single receptionist at the front desk was on the phone with another client. That client was placed on hold while the receptionist helped the next woman in line. Dr Kageyama and the receptionist then took the next five minutes to help the woman locate an appropriate time for her next visit. During this time, another client in the office was ushered back to their appointment. When the woman finished scheduling her appointment I informed her that I was there for my appointment. She excused herself and headed back to talk with an associate (I assume the PA). After she returned I was told that I would have to reschedule. I looked at my cell phone, and it read 11:42am. I didn't bother to argue, politely rescheduled, and left never to return.
I was told when I made the appt that I could only see her for what I mentioned, anything else required another appt. She spent approx 6 min with me. Cost over $300 - was looked at and had a skin tag removed - no biopsy was done. Told me to see a specialist then when I tried to go to one, she denied telling me to do that. Probably wanted me to pay for another appt.
