Excellent care and provider

March 20, 2020 6:22 AM

Dr. Dudley is amazing. She & her staff always take time to answer my questions. They are kind.

March 14, 2020 8:06 AM

I would not recommend this physician. But the nursing staff and front desk were great.

February 21, 2020 11:58 AM

I went to Dr. Dudley for a skin check and concern with a _____ age spot. She talked about my options and took care of my concerns. She is the best and I have referred her to family w/friends who have had good experience as well.

February 21, 2020 11:58 AM

Dr. Dudley is a great dermatologist and she spends time with you if necessary but is quick and thorough in her exams.

February 18, 2020 6:24 AM

Dr. Dudley and her staff are very thorough and kind.

February 17, 2020 10:37 AM

I felt very pleased. They are very attentive.

February 10, 2020 11:25 PM

felt a little rushed through the exam.

January 20, 2020 3:51 PM

got right to the point and described what needed to be done

January 20, 2020 3:51 PM

Her nurse was exceptional in explaining what I needed to do after the procedure and gave ointment and bandages for the day after.

Nurse & doctor listened and responded with thoughtful, appropriate and efficient care.

January 17, 2020 6:02 AM

Positive, thoughtful & efficient care.

January 13, 2020 4:55 PM

Love going with Dr Dudley

January 4, 2020 7:34 AM

it was ok, I'm not sure if she heard what I was saying. she was in and out in less than 10 min and she looked my whole body over for any problem areas

January 3, 2020 10:29 AM

I've only had 3 visits total with Dr. Dudley, and was very happy with the professional opinion/recommendation she provided.

I feel Dr.Dudley knows how to handle my medical problems. I would always see her for Ny dermatologist needs.

December 5, 2019 8:01 AM

She didn't explain how to use the cream, she barely took time to see me, and even forgot to check on area I was concern about.

November 24, 2019 6:24 AM

Dr Dudley listened to the reason for my visit and did a complete facial exam for possible skin cancer. She also took a sample of my spot and had it biopsied. I received verbal results in a timely manner.

November 24, 2019 6:24 AM

I have always had positive visits with Dr Dudley and would highly recommend her services to others. She is compassionate and very professional.

November 11, 2019 2:03 PM

Did not feel like the doctor was interested in helping me find options to manage my acne. Most things that we discussed I had to initiate, no follow up questions, not much investigation.

November 11, 2019 8:48 AM

Dr. Dudley is an outstanding dermatologist. she had found numerous skin cancers on me. She is very good.

November 11, 2019 8:48 AM

Dr Catherine Dudley and her staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. I'll continue to follow up with her even though she is not in network with my insurance.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Very professional. Enjoyed the deja vu of the younster screaming in the department next to ours. It made my experience seem like a stroll in the park.

June 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dudley is always caring, thoughtful & concerned. Very thorough and explains process.

June 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent care always!

June 23, 2019 7:00 PM

wait time too long

June 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dudley is professional, easy to talk to and I trust her as my doctor.

June 5, 2019 7:00 PM

I felt the exam was not thorough.

June 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Overall everything was fine. I like Dr. Dudley and have recommend her to others in my family.

May 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dudley removed a wart from my shoulder and sent it for a biopsy as a precautionary measure and indicated I would receive a call from her/her office on Tuesday. It's June 1st and I still have NOT received a call from her or the office. The health care system is declining and I know it's not the doctors fault she is slotted for 15 minute appointments. I am not a wholehearted believer in Western medicine (thank God) therefore I do not generally see health care providers. I saw Dr. D. for a skin check and "bump/wart" removal.

May 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Doctor Dudley is first class, skilled, knowledgeable, & compassionate. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anybody applicable.

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent care

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dudley is an excellent physician. I trust her implicitly.

May 18, 2019 7:00 PM

very good

May 3, 2019 7:00 PM

professional as always

April 30, 2019 7:00 PM

April 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Dudley is very down to earth and knowledgeable.

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Always takes care of any concerns that I have.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Very positive.

April 7, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Dudley always provides great care to my family!

March 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Professional from start to finish. Doctor and staff willing to share all knowledge and answered all questions. Really appreciated swiftness from 1st call for appointment to actual visit!

February 26, 2019 6:00 PM

When I called for my biopsy results, it took me 3 calls because I was transferred all over the place. Once I was on hold for 30 minutes.

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Dudley & her staff are always welcoming, kind, knowledgeable & compassionate - I've had a lot of procedures done in her office/a lot of stitches & my skin looks good!

February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

Efficient, effective, reassuring and confident.

February 9, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr.Dudley was knowledgeable and explained everything she was doing and why.

February 4, 2019 6:00 PM

I was late due to snowy weather and they still got me in quickly

February 2, 2019 6:00 PM

Provider was very professional. Small surgical procedure done efficiently.

February 2, 2019 6:00 PM

It was good, the doctor is excellent.

February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

very good

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

This provider seems very knowledgeable and competent, which inspires confidence.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Disappointed with the phone system! To make my appointment, I was on hold 22 minutes before I spoke with a person! I think there should be a direct line to the secretary at the office. Very frustrating!

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Dudley took a biopsy of suspect sample. She was very caring and efficient.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Very good experience. I think Dr. Dudley is great.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Excellent doctor of dermatology.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Dudley and nurse always provide exceptional care and this visit was no exception. I appreciate their thoroughness and their caring attitude.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM


January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

The visit was great. However , after the visit was a train wreck due to the wrong prescription being sent to the pharmacy and taking forever to return contact about it. Lastly, saying they prescribed the wrong item since it's the same meds and usually cheaper...... Well, it cost 3x the amount of the correct prescription. Luckily my pharmacy went above and beyond to try and get me what I needed.

January 19, 2019 6:00 PM

My experience was just as good as it always has been. Dr. Dudley is a very knowledgeable and competent physician.

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

Very professional and understands my needs.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr DUDLEY was very helpful, sweet & friendly. I really appreciated her being so personable & kind!

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

very good dermatologist.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

My appointment lasted around five minutes. Dr. Dudley raised my shirt and stated that I have body acne. I wished there was more testing or follow up to see why I suddenly have this acne. I paid a $50 specialty copay to be told I have acne. Well I figured that. The question is why do I have this acne. I asked and she stated it could be the weather.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Dudley is wonderful, however, the nurse that brought me in & took my medical history was not. She didn't greet me & seemed unhappy to be there.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

tried to call to let them know I was stuck in traffic. got the central appointment line. can never get the doctor office itself.

November 17, 2018 6:00 PM

Great care and follow up with a plan...

November 12, 2018 6:00 PM

Dudley spent only 5 minutes with me and hardly looked at the area I was seeing her for; she blamed it on weight and my clothing type without spending enough time to actually examine it. I could have saved the 60 dollar copay and went to my primary care

October 19, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Dudley was able to provide the best service as she always does.

October 15, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Dudley is very good at what she does.

October 15, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Dudley was very helpful and understanding and helped me with my issue. Her staff was also very helpful and attentive and accommodating to my needs when I was in the office for my visit.

October 15, 2018 7:00 PM

The only prior experience I've had with a dermatologist before was poor at best, so I put off going for years for a worsening condition. Eventually I had had enough, and decided to visit Dr. Dudley. I'm so glad I did! It has made such a difference! And not once did I feel ignored or brushed off as a bother like I experienced with my last dermatologist. Thank you!

October 8, 2018 7:00 PM

very competent doctot

October 1, 2018 7:00 PM

Good treatment

September 29, 2018 7:00 PM

dr Dudley is always personable, listens to my questions/concerns & treats my issues with care. very satisfied & would recommend her. the support staff were extremely helpful &friendly. the facility on healthway is cold/sterile but is offset by convenience & the personnel. I'd be extremely unhappy if this location closed but since Advocate took over, its completely impersonal.

September 29, 2018 7:00 PM

Lacked warmth. Dr. X (retired) had an exceptional bedside manner

September 23, 2018 7:00 PM

I love Dr. Dudley!
