While I have been previously very satisfied with my visits to Melissa Holtz, this visit was ver rushed. I had 2 keratoses removed and was rushed into deciding if I wanted others removed. If I had been given a couple more minutes to think about it and maybe some suggestions, I definitely would have wanted a few more removed. But she seemed to be in a big hurry to get in and get out.
