I want to find a good dermatologist for my teenage son (acne) and myself for general cosmetic stuff. I prefer a female doctor who is up to date on latest techniques. We live in Cary. I tried Cary Dermatology but it seems like they really don't want any new patients. Not only do you have to wait a couple of months for an appt, but they don't take United Healthcare insurance! Come on. That's a very well known insurer. Anyway, please recommend anyone but them. Thank you.

(All the physicians there are female, by the way.)

Most of my family goes to audrey echt's office AE Dermatology and I have seen all of the docs and the PA's. It is hard to get an appointment with them (or any dermo I have found) when you are a new patient. I was able to get my daughter in (she had a something on her lip that needed to get looked at), because the day I called someone had canceled. I got her an appointment 5 days after I called. When I originally started going there, it took me 3 months to get an appointment.

I do like the office, and the staff though. Once you are a patient it does not take that long to get an appointment.

Yes, I've seen her a couple of times for some skin issues. She's wonderfully warm and friendly. I can't comment on the rest of the practice.

Default Follow up question about these dermatologist recommendations

I realize this is an old thread, but I need to see a dermatologist and would like to do a bit more research before I make a selection and call for an appointment (and apparently then wait three months! )

I have been treated for an ongoing problem with adult acne for several years now. I'm totally sick of "the usual treatments" (tetracycline, special washes, accutane) that keep it just under control (would like to be medicine free!) and really want a good doctor to help investigate and get to the bottom of what is going on. So, I want to go to someone who will give me more than 15 minutes and a new Rx and "see ya in 6 mo"--I want a caring and thorough dermatologist who knows her stuff (I say "her" because the two I've been seeing were both men, so I think it is time to switch to a female). I'm thinking that blood tests and possibly hair analysis might be in order. I'm in my 40's and sick of all this!

There seems to be several good recommendations in this thread. Are any of these the type I am looking for?

And could you please give me an idea of what general office visits cost?

Thanks so much!
