I had previously seen five different dermatologists over 1.5 years for what they vaguely diagnosed as 'folliculitis', a condition that kept spreading and getting worse over this time. My first visit with Dr. Gilchrist started me on the path to healing, thank goodness, because my skin problems had felt intractable and embarrassing. I appreciate how she draws from both conventional allopathic and holistic medicine. She took more time to listen for the overall picture of what was going on with me. Her approach made her treatment plan effective and different from the previous five dermatologists. I've had a total of four visits--all have been very easy to schedule at convenient times for me and I've never had to wait more than five minutes. Her office staff has been welcoming and attentive. I'm grateful that her private practice accepts my Cigna insurance, so my charges have been reasonable (since I haven't yet met my $3000 deductible). My innumerable nodules have flattened and resolved. My itchiness is gone. I'm just trying/waiting for the residual brown spots/scars to fade at this point. Dr. Gilchrist has been sensitive, caring, experienced, knowledgeable, and effective. I'm so glad I found her practice--only regret I didn't find her 18 months earlier.

Dr. Gilchrist is a wonderful and caring dermatologist. Her holistic approach and calm demeanor were exactly what I was looking for in a provider. She truly cares about her patients and their understanding of treatments and procedures. Do yourself a favor and check her practice out!

I went to Dr Gilchrist for the first time last week. My experience was as follows: Very easy to schedule an appointment without too long a lead time. Front office staff was very pleasant. First visit paperwork was not onerous. Dr Gilchrist was also very pleasant she listened to my history, concerns and requests. I did not feel hurried and did not feel like "just a number ". Some reviews cited long wait times but I did not experience that. If the person after me was waiting, it did not seem to interfere with Heidi being a real person and taking her time to speak with me as though I was her neighbor. My examination was thorough and I feel comfortable that I have found a new dermatologist.
