Was a bit confused of information from the intern vs actual dr. After visit summary is also somewhat conflicting information.

I am happy that the existence of the parasitic infection from months ago was included in ongoing care. I need to inform Dr Tausk of my discovery of them present again Monday. Final blood labs and stool analysis will be more conclusive.

Worst experience I've had with a dermatologist. He hardly even looked at me. I will not use his services again and will cancel the appointment that Is scheduled for June. Resident did everything. Doctor was just a figurehead.

I liked Dr. Tausk very much! I appreciated the fact that he kept reiterating that if I saw anything suspicious on my skin to call the office immediately. He was very friendly, caring and genuine and totally made me feel at ease! His residents were excellent, also!
