Supply, NC |
Came for treatment of actinic keratosis and another condition. She treated them both effectively. Best thing about her is she spent plenty of time with me, asked many questions to make sure she understood what I had come there for. She did NOT bring a computer into the room, but took noted by hand, and then spent the rest of her time actually doctoring me. Excellent. Best and most patiently attentive treatment I've had in many years.

WARNING and BEWARE, I came in for a simple small lesion removal and she left me a permanent scare away from the lesion and did not remove the lesion around my lip. She's not good with her hands and eyes to do surgical work. I could have done a better job, if I did the work myself.

I would highly recommend Dr. Kassens. She is very knowledgeable with what type of skin problems one may have. I have seen Dr.Kassens several times over a period of many years and she is still one of the best Dermatologist one can be seen by.
