I´ve been coming to Dr. Ochs for over 15 years. As a patient who had malignant melanoma at 24, Dr. Ochs is always so thorough with my exams and I feel SO confident with her care. Not only is she a magnificent doctor she has a delightful personality. The complete package. Unfortunately now my health plan does not cover Dr. Ochs but I pay cash, that´s how much I value her as a doctor.
February 2018
Dr. Oches fabulous physician..WOnderful with patients..
February 2018
I have been under Dr. Ochs´s care for many years. She is tops and that´s why I commute from Bainbridge Island in order to have her for this procedure. I would highly recommend her.
February 2018
Dr Ochs has always been excellent provider.
January 2018
i felt i had to talk fast to make sure to cover my 3 topics as it seemed people were in a hurry.
January 2018
After waiting roughly 4 months for a new patient appointment and arriving ahead of my scheduled appointment time, I left my appointment feeling very rushed. Dr Ochs did a thorough job at explaining how to take the medication, and it´s clear that she´s very knowledgeable, however she was speaking so quickly and was so visibly rushed that I didn´t feel I could ask any of the questions that I had been waiting to ask. At the end of the appointment, she was in such a hurry that she left the room still finishing a sentence and essentially yelled it behind her as the door closed. After that, the medical assistant came in to take my blood pressure as a precaution before sending over my prescription, and then she said I was free to go. I was referred to Dr. Ochs by a friend, so I do feel as though she is a very competent and knowledgeable provider, however I did feel as though she wanted to be in/out as quickly as possible. All in all the appointment lasted about 20 minutes. I would like to see her again for future dermatology needs and have a chance to see if this was a one time occurrence, however the haste at which the appointment moved made me feel as though my care wasn´t very high on her priority list.
December 2017
Dr Ochs is a true professional, who shows compassion for me whatever the circumstances of my visit. She always provides me the information I require to make an informed decision about my care. She has helped me though 3 basal cancer cell occurrences and has arranged followup surgery and plastic surgery with the best surgeons I could hope for. I highly appreciate the skill of her care and her compassion.
December 2017
She was somewhat rushed this time, probably because she was running behind. She still took time to chat with me, however.
December 2017

dr ochs is absolutely the best dermatologist I´ve ever been to
November 2017
Dr. Ochs is exceptional. I chose her (switching from another dermatology provider at VM) based on research and recommendation. She is careful, thoughtful, remarkably efficient and precise, and always caring and sincere. I appreciate her willingness to provide me sound technical explanations. I have a high degree of confidence in her.
November 2017
Dr. Ochs is amazing! She anticipated potential questions and provided answers in her explanation of my situation. She is extremely knowledgeable and thorough.
November 2017
Seems very hurried.
October 2017
Dr. Ochs is probably the best dermatologist I´ve ever worked with. Thank you!
October 2017
Seemed distracted or in a hurry. I felt I had to point out the areas of concern as Doc was walking towards the door after my body skin exam.
September 2017
Dr. Ochs has seen me through several squamous cell cancers so we have a running, good relationship.
September 2017
i feel like i can´t get a word in edgewise with this provider. she is very high energy and talkative, but there´s little to no room for me to contribute.
September 2017
seems a little rushed
September 2017

#9. Excellent, 3 stars.
July 2017
Dr. Ochs is very knowledgable, however I was very disappointed in how little time she spent with me. I waited for about 15-20mins and once she came in, she only spoke to me for about 5 minutes. I know things can get backed up, however the appointment felt extremely rushed and I wasn´t able to share all my questions and concerns. I also mentioned that the medicine she prescribed hasn´t agreed with me in the past. However she still prescribed it, so it felt like she wasn´t listening to my concerns.
June 2017
Excellent physician both in terms of competence and patient care
June 2017
I have held Dr. Ochs in high esteem for over a decade. She is my doctor of choice.
June 2017
have been with Dr. Ochs for years. The ratings are what I consider exceptional because I consider her exceptional. you may safely assume that I think she walks on water
June 2017
Those places I marked good are because the doctor knows me and knows I´ve been thru this before and that I don´t need explanations or discussions.
June 2017
Does an excellent job. Thorough.
June 2017
Dr Ochs is always fabulous!

Dr. Ochs and her assistants are professional and friendly. I am very happy with the service she provides and have recommended her to several of my friends.
May 2017
Dr. Ochs explained some of my mother´s skin spots in a way that she could understand so that she will not be anxious. She is always very friendly, positive, and professional.
May 2017
Dr. Ochs is always very positive and explains things in a way that can be understood. She is also efficient but thorough. I have the utmost confidence in her skills as a dermatologist. She has a good "bedside manner".
May 2017
Dr. Ochs was able to diagnose my condition where as another MD at VM was not. I feel so much better since seeing her. She is awesome and goes beyond to make sure you understand what to expect and how to use the medications. I would recommend Dr. Ochs highly
May 2017
she is the most competent Dr. she is extremely through and doesn´t miss anything.
May 2017
Dr. Ochs is professional and courteous and produces great results w/botox.
May 2017
Explanations were effective or correcting some misunderstanding I had about my condition.
April 2017
I don´t like to just put "very good" when doing a survey but the whole experience was excellent. Dr. Oches is such an incredible physician. She is so smart and one of the best Dermarologists out their. She does a great job explaining medical procedures or a diagnosis. I recommend her people all of the time.
April 2017
excellent provider
March 2017
Dr. Ochs and her team do an excellent job of explaining and caring for their patients. I am very confident in her abilities. She has great rapport with her patients!
March 2017
This was a melanoma recheck visit. I´m very happy with Dr. Ochs. I had visited two other dermatologists & neither had spotted the wonky mole on my knee.
March 2017
I have been with Dr Ochs for a long time and there simply are not enough good things to say. With a fairly new treatment we have actually gotten into prevention for problems on my back. Solutions of this kind often are not possible but I am convinced it might have been a very long time to this one without such a competent and up to date doctor. I used to come 3 or 4 times a year and now am on an annual schedule.
February 2017
Dr. Ochs is so great about taking care of multiple things in one appointment so that it is more convenient for me. And she makes suggestions (like photographing my moles) to save time and make it safer for me later.
February 2017
Impressed
