My pleasure to share my feedback about Dr. Ford! I was referred to her by a friend who said she was extremely knowledgeable regarding dermatology for black complexions. I was not disappointed. She readily answers all of my questiShow moreons about my facial issues. I am still dealing with acne, I have dark spots that frame my face and the older I get, the more moles I see around my neck. She had solutions for all of these problems that plagued me. She prescribed two medications and sunscreen for me. She also made a short video for showing me exactly how to apply these medications at what time and how much to apply with each use. So smart. She also took pictures of both sides of my face in order to ultimately document my progress. Her bedside manner is 5 star. She is soft spoken and to the point. I highly recommend her to others.
Upon entering the waiting room, I was greeted most pleasantly. I didn't have to wait 10 minutes before I escorted back to a waiting room to see Dr. Ford. I immediately felt at ease, and extremely comfortable sharing my issues witShow moreh Dr. Ford. She quickly tackled each and every one of my concerns and had a solution for each of my issues. Dr. Ford also shared some basic information with me, what I would call, "some common sense to do's, actions I was not aware of. I am elated to become one this practice patients, and I forsee a long lasting partnership. I am so happy to have met and been diagnosed by Dr. Ford. I must thank my primary physician who recommended I come to be seen by Dr. Ford.
