Ratings for Dr. Michelle Withers
I came to her with my skin problem, she barely looked at it before describing me accutane . A few months later when I brought up the issue that accutane was making me feel upset and not myself and if she could look into other options, she basically said there is no other options after this. Didn't give me a right diagnosis or the right medicine, and was so unhelpful making me feel like there was a dead end for my skin (I have found other options since). Would not recommend, doesn't take the time to even look at skin or doing any research if her first option doesn't work.
She is very stupid. If she doesn't know what's wrong with you she brushes it off and cuts the appt short. She thinks she is gods gift to mankind but she is quite far from it. Someone... probably her, reviewed her as beautiful and elegant? What does that have to do with being a good doctor? She obviously came on here to review herself! Don't bother with her, she is beyond rude. Makes you feel worthless.
I waited 3 months for my scalp problem. The receptionist was friendly I got there on time but had to wait like 10 minutes, and then it was her student Dr. Di** screen me first. She was so rude when asking my history, and when she was asking if I have other skin problem so I told her I do have one and then she just told me immediately that I would need to get another referral for that problem. What would she bother to ask that question if she didn't expect I do have other problems? She was very impatient also, she just want yes or no answer. After that she went outside and talked to Dr. Withers finally and they came to me and checked my scalp again and just told me I will have no cure and this problem will last forever in my life. She did not try to explain what I can do beside prescribed me a $40 dollars 60 ml lotion. I have never seen a doctor that rush an appointment. She was not helpful at all.
Would NOT recommend Dr. Michelle Withers. First of all, she rushed the appointment and tried not once but THREE times to get me to go on anti-depressants. For adult acne. She said the problem was that I pick at the acne. She did not want to discuss possible causes, environment, diet, lifestyle, nothing. She rushed me through the appointment and just seemed annoyed with me when I said I didn't want to go on anti-depressants. I will manage the "picking" on my own and find another derm. I will never go back to see her.
Went into See Dr. Withers with a concern regarding an irregular mole and eczema. Her resident did a wonderful job of screening me and doing a history focused around the mole and she also assessed my eczema which she assured me that Dr. Withers would have no problem looking at as the steroid cream I was using was apparently very mild and I just needed a stronger ointment. After assessing the mole Dr Withers took a brief look at my eczema knew it was very irritating as she stated "looks like you have really been going at it" I told her it had been very itchy and I have tried all types of remedies but unable to relieve it. She then told me to go make a subsequent appointment instead of sending me home with any kind of relief. My appointment would not be for another 3.5 months. The entire appointment was no longer than 5 minutes of which I waited 2 months to see her. Would never recommend her.
Grateful that I finally got the correct diagnosis from Dr. Withers for a growth that has been concerning me for a long time. She was able to let me know that it was a major concern and arranged to have it surgically removed right away. Dermatologist's are really important and diagnosis a lot of cancers. Be glad she is fast with you, that means you are healthy.
Dr. Michelle is very knowledgeable. I have seeing her for three years and she has helped for my skin problems which others couldn't. She is kind and courteous. She puts you at ease once u tell her your problems. I rate her very highly and so does my family. (Off course very beautiful and looks after herself)
