Always takes care of me. Always pleasant.

Dr. Achtman and Dr. McConnell have saved my life. Dr.Achtman is always kind and takes time to examine your skin. He has helped clear my skin of acne. Dr. McConnell has treated my stubborn dark spots that did not want to go away. And now they are almost all gone. I have my confidence back thanks to them. They always make you feel welcomed, never rushed. And answer all my questions with detail. And extremely patient. I have had to take my daughters with me a couple of times. The best service ever!

Dr McConnell is great with all the skincare and has the lasers to get the job done! Dr Achtman knows his dermatology and always has the answer for your skin problems! Need I say more? I'm a fan!

Yes I would recommend Dr, Achtman. Now days doctors really only care about 2 things 1.) Making money 2.) Not getting sued. It's hard to find a doctor that really does care. He cares, he follow ups and Kathy his nurse called or texted me every day to see how my husband was doing.

Dr. Achtman cleared up our teen's daughter acne when several other doctors could not. He asks questions and truly listens. He also helped her with a scar. My husband resists medical visits of any kind, but he trusts Dr. Achtman and got help with a mole. He's a great doctor. We can't thank him and his wonderful staff enough!
in Richardson, TX |
He never explains about details of treatment and after a month, I received another bill for pathology, that I have never been told about before.
