An excellent physician and Mohs surgeon. He has treated me outstandingly with Basal Cell, Squamous Cell and Melinoma skin cancers. All have been caught early with skin checks.

I have been seeing Dr. Rkein for months now and he is incredible. He’s very knowledgeable, personable, thorough, and kind. He answered all my questions and I never felt rushed at any time. He really listens to your concerns and you both come to whatever decision needs to be made together. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs to see a Dermatologist. Plus he’s the Mohs surgeon and his results after surgery are awe inspiring. I know I’ll always go to him for any surgery I need don

I love Dr. Rkein! He is so knowledgeable and at the same time super personable. He really makes you feel comfortable and he explains everything in a very easy to understand manner. He is efficient, without making you feel rushed. I'm a patient of his and I also have taken three of my children to him because I have the utmost trust and confidence in him. I wish every doctor was like Dr. Rkein.
