Patient Comments (3)
The staff is amazing. very professional. Dr. Sammons is amazing.
I have seen 3 other dermatologist's for my acne and peri-oral dermatitis over the past 6 years. All of the other dermatologists misdiagnosed my dermatitis as acne, and I was never able to find relief from either of my skin issues. Until I met Dr. Sammons.

Alway an exceptional experience.
