Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Charles "Early in my training at the Mayo Clinic I was taught that the interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered. With that as my guiding principle, I strive to create a warm and trusting relationship with my patients so they may feel at ease discussing their skin care issues with me. I believe strongly in educating patients on how best they can be in control of their own outcomes; after all, they are the ones who live day to day in their own skin! Lastly, I try to administer a healthy dose of laughter with each prescription or procedure as I've found this helps my patients get better more quickly."

Dr. Charles is a trustworthy professional who strives to give the patient the desired results. His procedures are close to pain-free! He has a caring and down-to-earth manner. I respect his knowledge and highly recommend his work as well as Dr. Fang who is in the same office.

Pill pushing doc that doesn't want to get to the root of a patients problems. Recommended that I NOT see an allergist for my skin rash breakouts because it was supposedly not related to food.
