Dr. Shaughnessy is a kind and compassionate professional who takes time with her patients to relate to them as individuals. She is also a Ed very competent professional.

I Been having issues with my skin for a few weeks. I went to see Emily S. Dermatologist. The doctor looked at it took a biopsy sent some cream to the pharmacy. Had to wait two weeks for biopsy results. Meanwhile I called the office because the cream wasn’t helping. I asked if they can give me a different medicine, they told me I had to wait for the results. The doctor or neither the nurse had the courtesy to call me to follow up with my call about a new medication. The results are in and still haven’t heard from them. Decided to call the office and the receptionist said that the manager or the nurse or someone from the office was going to call me, but they never did. I am still waiting for them to get to me. Very bad service, unacceptable communication. It seams like they don’t care. If it’s is the case and it’s for business then let us know so I don’t loose my time seeking medical treatment at your office’s. Thank you!

I felt heard and helped. She answered all my questions and did so much for me in the one visit. I just moved to CT and my old doctor had me come back for many visits to accomplish what she did not me in one visit. I really appreciated it

Dr. Shaughnessy is the best dermatologist I have ever seen. She is extremely thorough and has spotted areas that have needed special attention. I highly recommend her!
