Ratings for Dr. Maral Skelsey
Dr. Skelsey performed Mohs surgery on my elderly mother and I was very impressed with her practice. The office decor is bright, cheerful, and (for a medical facility) elegant. Dr. Skelsey's staff couldn't have been more kind and helpful. Mohs surgery involves a good deal of passing time in the lobby waiting for results so surroundings and amenities to pass the time are important. Ample magazines of all types were available and the staff regularly checked in with updates and offered cookies and juice. The surgical suite, too, was bright, clean, and spacious. The surgical team also was most kind.
Visited for full body screen and precancer on face. She's the typical Doc that's too busy to be thorough (she missed a visible precancer)& uses scare tactics to try to push patients into biopsies. Why not try non-surgical options before permanently scarring someones face? Educate yourself & research ALL options before letting doctors cut into you. Remember, you will have to live with any 'mistakes', not the doctor. The waiting area is way too bright(color & lighting). Do you really want to be on display if you have skin cancer or undergoing unsightly therapy on your face? Do you realize, you will be placed in the waiting room during your Mohs surgery? Also, some of the nursing staff lack basic knowledge on common prescribed meds (e.g. Solaraze). Remember, doctors are in the BUSINESS of selling health. And the skin cancer BUSINESS is very profitable. Caveat emptor.
Dr. Skelsey was prompt in doing the surgery. She was pleasant and called me after the surgery to determine how I was doing and whether I had any questions or concerns. I just had the most recent surgery on this Tuesday but a previous surgery was very successful.
