Learn about Dr. Charles

Care Philosophy

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.

A caring and very dedicated MD, I would without hesitation recommend Dr. Charles to anyone experiencing skin questions. It seems dermatologists are not that common and availability for talented ones can be a challenge. That is the case with Dr. Charles. I like him as an MD because he listens very intently, queries to see if he understood, thinks about his response and squarely answers with his medical opinion - which is what patients seek. A great human being and medical specialist. A++

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. I wasn't in agreement with him so I went to see an Allergist anyway and found out I have Celiac Disease, hence the reason for my breakouts!!! Also Dr. Charles spent less than 5 minutes preforming a skin scan exam, that should have taken a lot longer and didn't even look at many areas such as under hair.
