Although Stanford is a good 45 minutes away for me, it became an absolute necessity for me to check out this treatment center because I had a disturbing history with scalp psoriasis that had suddenly flared up and spread. I debated seeing a dermatologist in my city, but my old one had moved away a few years ago. Stanford ending up being just what I needed, they provided a bunch of useful info over the phone through a triage nurse who gave me the names of topical over the counter medications that I could use to get me by before going to my appointment. Unfortunately, since Stanford IS so prestigious, they were booked for months and I had to wait for what seemed like forever to actually see a doctor in person. When I did, my psoriasis was cured in a few treatments.
