Columbia >Jing Zhang MD - Carolinas Dermatology Group
I will not go back to Dr. Blaskis. I needed to see a dermatologist due to my family history of skin cancer. I made an appointment to have a mole looked at. The nurse I saw removed it. I went back a month later for my follow up and the same nurse did a 10 minute body check, though from speaking to other family members that have had it done, she did not check everywhere. During that appointment she removed 2 moles and a freckle. (the appointment lasted 15 minutes) When my test results came back as moderate dysplasia on both of my moles, I made an appointment for the next day. I thought I was going in to have the areas cut out. But to my disbelief, that did no happen. I saw Dr. Blaskis for a total of 5 minutes. He told me my results, SCRAPED the 2 areas again. I asked if about cutting the area out. He told me it wasn't necessary. I tried to ask about my previous results, though it seemed he was more interested in walking out the door. I am now in the process of finding a dermatologist.
Don't go to Dr. Miller. I only went to Carolina Dermatology Group once so I can only speak to that one experience. All of the staff were nice except for Dr. Scott Miller. I have had a horrible, ichy rash which appears at night for four months. I saw the Dr. for 4 minutes (I watched on the clock) and all he did was prescribe 2 medications; 1 for allergies (which I had already tried) and another to help the itching once the rash had started (it has not helped). He prescribed this without asking any questions or even really looking at my skin. This was my first time to the Derm. so I was hoping for a "detailed exam." All I got was 4 minutes and 2 prescriptions (one for an over-the-counter med) which have not helped at all. I paid $85 for the visit and it was a waste. I tried calling afterwards to let the office know how dissappointed I had been, and spoke with the Dr. who was rude and defensive. I would not recommend going to Dr. Miller if you want any personal attention. I have dealt with cronic dry skin my whole life and I have a family history of psorisis (both of which I told the Dr.). I have gotten better skin advice from talking to what friends' Derm. recommended.
