Dr. Kessel took the time to explain what my skin conditions were. He talked about having some of the same issues that I had. He put me at ease and was very knowledgeable about explaining how my skin problems were not serious and how they could be treated. Very happy with this visit.

It was my first time to a dermatologist and Dr Kessel made me feel comfortable as well as his assist Devin. The wait time was short, I also liked I was able to fill out most of my forms on line. Which made my wait time short. The overall environment and staff was great. Thanks folks
