This person told me that she'd have to examine my genitals in case there is cancer there. I thought that was a bit strange. Lots of touching the breasts too. I'm debating filing a suit.

She missed the whole cancer I came to her for.
Two times for same bleeding cancer on my face!
Talks toooo much!!!Doen't listen. What a puffed up fake. She is not even an MD according to someone I talked to afterwords when I complained. Apparently Says she works with a Dr.Krafferd but I've never seen him there and understand he is in Redding 250 miles away and flys over if there is an emergency.Wish he was there when I was there. She just sprays everything!
That kind of treatment is to superficial for what I needed.
What kind of money grubbing outfit is this?
Finally went to another doctor who appropriately took the time to sample my skin and told me a few days later I have a Basil cell cancer.Now after a year and 2 visits to Ann Carlisle I'm going to have a big scar. Thanks Sweetie!

Worst healthcare professional I've ever seen. Before I went to her I had the utmost respect and trust in healthcare professionals in a private setting but this lady is absolutely terrible.

I came to her with scabies, she misdiagnosed it for SEVEN MONTHS. Let me say that again, SEVEN MONTHS. Something as SIMPLE as scabies. I finally diagnosed myself (after too many sleepless nights of online research) and went to an urgent care clinic for treatment and FINALLY got some relief (from ivermectin), all the doctors in the clinic where dumbfounded about how this could go on for so long without a proper diagnosis. For the first time in MONTHS I got a few good nights sleep after the ivermectin started taking effect. I was literally losing my mind from all the lost sleep. I would walk around in a daze on a daily basis. My grades suffered, I lost my girlfriend, and I couldn't in good conscious let my friends in my room because scabies is so contagious (one of whom actually got it because at one point this dumbass had me convinced I DIDN'T have scabies... jesus H christ WHY did I listen??? Thankfully he had a better doctor, caught it early and didn't have to go through the hell I did)

But it still didn't click with me about how terrible Anne was, and after battling with the bullshit for a few months I decided to go back to her in hopes of getting some kinds of insights on how to eliminate the disease from myself and my environment and she absolutely denied that I had it. S h e s i m p l y w o u l d n o t l i s t e n t o m e. Even after I told her it looked exactly like the scabies that I had before.
I mean how stupid is this lady? She kept telling me it was eczema, then she was started to tell me the IVERMECTIN WAS WORKING BECAUSE IT WAS ALL IN MY HEAD.
This isn't even HALF of the shit I went through with this lady. She should be fired and never be allowed to practice healthcare again.

The only reason I chose to come here and relive this bullshit write this review is because I truly feel bad for people who go to this lady for healthcare, and if this turns away ONE SINGLE person from seeing her, it'll be worth it. Ever since I saw her I take what dermatologists tell me with a grain of salt.

Thanks for reading.

The four reviews are off the mark. Anne has always treated me with great respect. Also, someone else is always in the room when she treats me.

I was just in the office today and found no problem with her or her assistant's professionalism. I've been a patient for nearly four years.

She discovered a small skin cancer on my leg during my first visit.

Drive to Redding if you suspect a serious skin disease or consult an a local doctor of internal medicine who will refer you if necessary. Humboldt County seems unable to attract highly paid medical professionals. Good Luck.

Unfortunately, we have few options in Humboldt Co.

On another subject, I must take my daughter to San Francisco for hand surgery. Her doctor here (recently left HumCo) did a mediocre job on her other hand. She'll never get the full use of that hand unless she elects to have a second surgery on that hand.

Hey Moonchild, just because you like this lady doesn't mean she is a good healthcare professional and it doesn't discredit the horrible experiences others have had with her.
Try to see past your nose in the future.

Ms. Carlisle misdiagnosed a malignant melanoma on my arm to be "staining" and scar tissue from where a mole was removed several years prior. Because of her "don't worry about it" diagnosis, I walked around for 3 YEARS with a growing cancer that I didn't know about until the area that she deemed scar tissue started to rapidly change.

Thank goodness I immediately sought help from my family doctor and got to a real dermatologist before it was too late. My family doctor told me if I had waited another six months, I probably would have died from the melanoma.

Now that I'm cancer free but missing a big chunk of my arm where the melanoma was removed, I can honestly say that I won't seek diagnosis or treatment from Ms. Carlisle for anything in the world and I absolutely recommend that others find treatment for dermatology issues from some other practice!

you dont need doctors. when we are running everything you will find release from your self caused fake ailments by the healing power of prayer. we will all pray all the time and that way god cant not hear us pray as that is what we will be doing all the time and praying is the only way to get his attention and to get him to do something about stuff. also we must stop all everything except the amedment to keep and bare arms. god loves you.

Wow! Rob, you sure have a chip on your shoulder. I described my experience which is only fair. Your response was full of hate which may raise doubt whether yours is a credible opinion.
