When appointment made, I was somewhat apprehensive about seeing a PA. However, my fears were soon gone! Ron was very kind and thorough. He understood my fears of having skin cancer again. He reassured me and "froze" the places. He also gave me some good tips on managing my dry skin. Very pleased.

He asked thorough questions, gave thorough answers and asked if I had any additional questions. I felt confident in the service he provided and relieved when I left his office.

he seem fair enought in pretense and very good in hygiene, well spoken as far as medical terminology is concerned I guess I need to brush up on mine, he was quite impressive as well as that was concerned, if that concerns S&W? The procedure he preformed was well executed in a profesional manner , clean, and pain free , with that I am well satified. As far ad my other concerns were care for I feel I had to grab his attention in a somewhat rude possibly in his perception, or desperate in mine, manner. However the outcome rmains to be seen so, we shall see what we shall see, As to any further comment thats all I can speak on for now.

I always like every dr I have visited at scott & white over many years. This dr got impatient with me when I didn't understand the prescription instructions. Had to repeat. Told me he thought it was skin cancer. no concern shown at all. Seemed in a hurry. Have to return for follow up in 3 months, & I do not even want to see him again.

i am close to finding a different dermatologist because seeing this physician assistant is proving to be a waste of money. He does not involve you in your treatment plan and seems to have very little interest in whether the care he provides is successful or not. He has so sense of urgency tooooo solve your issue. After 5 visits and 3 sets of labs, an out of pocket expense of $250 for care and closer to the same for prescriptions, and my issue is worse now than the first day I walked into this clinic. He just keeps saying make another appt in a month, but the receptionist always makes it for closer to 2 months, and nothing has been accomplished. Also quite annoying is the fact that I can make an an appt online for within a week, yet even the receptionist makes it, they always say there is nothing available for closer to 2 months. Ridiculous!!

My pathology results released to MyChart showing the area that he took a biopsy showed squamous cell carcinoma. I had sent him a MyChart message about a medication that he wanted to prescribe after speaking with my PCP. When his nurse sent his reply I asked about my pathology report. I assumed he would at least pickup the telephone to call to tell me I have skin cancer but he sent back a message using the abbreviation "SCC". if I was not in the medical field how would I know what that meant? He has showed a total lack of concern about my well being and I do not wish to ever see him again. Why would you just release sensitive labs without an explanation?
