      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      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.
