5 out of 5 stars Rosacea Treatment

Suffered with Type I and Type II Rosacea for 20 Years - San Jose, CA

I found Dr. Colby after years of failed treatments for my rosacea. I solicited recommendations from friends on Facebook and did research on what my peers had recommended. I found California Skin Institute and decided to try Dr. Colby based on her reviews and friends' recommendations. Sometimes I have to wait too long for my appointment, but if seeing Dr. Colby means that my rosacea stays in remission, then I'm willing to be patient. The clinic is a very busy place with numerous doctors offering a tremendous spectrum of services. The doctors are reputable and the ones I've chosen for my various issues have all been rated highly on various health and public review sites. The only downside I've experienced in my interactions with Dr. Colby has been her nurse. I do not recall her name, but when the nurse is taking info from me at the beginning of the appointment, I feel extremely rushed and like she's not listening to me at all. She is short in attention and a bit condescending. Once Dr. Colby is in the room, I feel like I'm in good hands with a doctor who is hearing my concerns and working with me on solving this lifelong and very depressing ailment.
