Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Abell "Dermatology & Cosmetic Skin Care is a family oriented practice. We serve the  young to the very elderly. Toys and dolls for the kids. Comfortable chairs and couches for you to relax and occasionally snooze while waiting to be called. Yes....sometimes there is a wait. There is a TV for those who want to catch up on their shows and local news. We are not a sleek plastic surgery office or a sterile hospital waiting room. Think Grandmother's house on Thanksgiving Day. There's lots of laughter and we love what we do.

We do enjoy doing cosmetic procedures such as Botox and Fillers but that is not our primary focus. Medical and surgical dermatology is 90% of our practice. We do not hesitate to refer to a plastic surgeon or Moh's surgeon if the patient outcome is improved by that referral.

We appreciate patient feedback. We are always striving to improve."

Dr. Abell Says:
"

Long waits are a common complaint in the office. Insurance companies restrict how much time can be spent with patients. Unforeseen events occur. The session that should have lasted fifteen minutes goes to thirty. An elderly woman takes longer to dress or a patient on aspirin bleeds after a procedure. These delays are cumulative. If you are the last one scheduled, you will probably be delayed. We are always working on this never

I had been thinking about trying something for my new wrinkles (thank you 30s). Dr. Abell was able to look at my face and pointed out what she noticed. Everything was carefully explain to me and they took a bunch of photos so that the results could be seen next time! Dr. Abell took her time and I...more

Being a long time user of tanning beds, I had seen a couple dermatologists in the past for skin exams that barely took the time to really look at my skin. Dr. Abell was totally different! She took so much time on my skin exam and made me feel like she really cared about my health and making sure...more

Dr Abell and her staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I visited this office a little while back and was very happy with the outcome. Dr Abell addressed all my concerns and even noticed a small abnormal mole on my back and I am glad she did. Fast forward a little bit and the mole has been...more

My daughter, husband & I all had neg. experiences w/this Dr. First, a 45 mins to an hour wait is normal. Going early doesn't help. Then, in 2014, out-of-the-blue, we received letters from a COLLECTION AGENCY (me: $60/husband: $25) dating back to 2012 for copays! IMPOSSIBLE as you can't leave the...more
