Went in to have seborrheic keratosis removed from under my eye. Froze it quickly with very little pain. Also removed a growth that I've had for years, that I was told couldn't be removed. Everyone in the office including Dr. Geist were friendly and efficient.

John K. – Sep 25, 2021
While I was completely satisfied with the procedure I am totally unsatisfied with all other aspects of my visit. Confusion and misinformation was given to me the first scheduled visit...I arrived for the procedure on the day I was originally told to show up only to hear I was there on the wrong day? Then today I arrived and after the procedure was told only then of the post-surgical steps... don't lift, go home etc. What is up with that? I have activities this week that I have to attend to as it is my income and my livelyhood. They failed in their responsibility to fully explain all aspects of the procedure and am extremely disappointed. Had I known I would have scheduled this at a later time. I hold you responsible for this failure.

From the initial positive response to my request to be placed on the waiting list for an earlier appointment, to my warm welcome by Katie at reception, to Jessie’s friendly, efficient, painless and informative prep work, through Dr. Geist’s kindness and expert Moh’s surgical treatment,this was an extremely positive experience. I highly recommend this practice!
