Excellent doctor (Dr. Ochs) and staff who attended to me (2 PAs or nurses). it was a long wait to get in, but after I saw Dr. Ochs, it gave me peace of mind and was almost worth the wait.
  Overall Patient Rating - June 2019
I've been seeing Dr. OCHS for over 15 years. I tried to "transfer" to another provider, but it was a disaster. she has helped not only with dermatology issues, but with other skin related problems. I had a liver transplant in 2014, and she helped me immensely in the lead up to that challenge. She is an incredible, talented and thoughtful individual that I have recommended several times in the past. We have a great relationship and she has, on multiple occasions, has fast tracked additional moh surgery.

dr ochs literally saved my life. During one of my appointments 2018 I mentioned my ankle was swollen and I had some heat in my leg. She didn't like the looks of it and immediately found someone for me to see 2 hours later and I ended up in the emergency room with a blood clot in my lungs. if she hadn't pursued finding a doctor to see me that day rather than having to wait for a regularly scheduled appointment with my GP, I could have possibly died. I can't say enough about her and the fact she took the time to be willing to look outside her area of specialty to take care of me I will always be grateful to her.

  Overall Patient Rating - May 2019
Ulrike was/is fantastic. She is confident, knowledgeable, action-oriented, and a real problem solver. She had a plan, a back-up plan (which we needed and used), and made me feel that she not only knew how to handle my situation but also would do everything in her power to help me with a speedy recovery. I truly can't thank her enough and would recommend her to anyone.

Way too hurried. This is usually the case with Dr. Ochs. She appears to be taking on too many patients. I had a couple questions but she left too fast to ask. She first entered the room with her ginger on the liquid nitrogen trigger and went immediately to treatment without asking any questions.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Really appreciated Dr. Ochs discussing medication options with me for relevant health conditions and encouraging me to further discuss with other VM providers
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Dr. Ochs is amazing. She's quick and efficient, but always takes the time to answer any questions I have. She's excellent at explaining the treatment being performed. I especially like her professionalism while still being courteous and friendly.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
This was the first time seeing this provider where she seemed a bit rushed. Her nurse had failed to properly ice me or numb an area with cream where I was supposed to receive an injection. The provider gave me an ice bag while we talked and told me that the next time I should tell the nurse to put numbing cream in the area (the lips) so that they would be numb before injections. This time the pain was possibly the worst I have ever experienced. The provider gave me a rather quick total skin examination for skin cancer, quicker than times previously.

  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
Excellent care, concern, and personal warmth. The best doctor I have. Solves every medical concern I have. The highest of integrity and trust.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
Dr. Ochs remembers me and my issues even though I see her annually or less frequently. After I filled her in about a visit with a new Dr., she stopped and read his notes before continuing her exam and deciding on a course of action. I liked her certainty about the next specialist I should see, one that none of my other doctors had recommended (infectious diseases). She gave me some optimism about fighting a recurring infection with a different course of treatment/medication.
