The office is easy to find; easy to park. Good grade on this. Rock on car!

I've always shown up on time for my appointments with Dr. Peggy Albrecht-- but she is always (really, ALWAYS) late, even when I schedule my appts. @e beginning of the day. I have no idea what consistently causes her to be so late. I've always had to waste 15 to 20+ minutes waiting for her to appear.
Well, is it worth the wait?

Dr. Albrecht appears by a referral and her Duke credentials to be knowledgeable. But I consistently find her rushed for time (maybe because she is always behind schedule), somewhat arrogant, unabashedly abrupt and dismissive, minimally informative , incomplete in her verbal and written therapy instructions, and much less trustworthy than other dermatologists--including others in her group whom I have seen for various common dermatology symptoms.

After every office visit with her, I've had to do online research on my own to understand my symptoms and her diagnosis, evaluate the potential treatments, as well as to perform the therapy that she recommended and/or prescribed. How about followup by her staff? Rare, or nonexistent.

These experiences raise the obvious question, why choose her?
Frankly, I often appreciate a Dr. who is a "technoid" vs. one who is "a 'people person". But sadly for any patient who could benefit from her training, Dr. Albrecht offers neither of these attributes. She seems to me to be a self-involved automaton, neither " present" or empathetic. I would not recommend her--whether or not you have a schedule to keep.
