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.Read more

Overall Patient Satisfaction
Likelihood of recommending Dr. Abell to family and friends is 2.7 out of 5
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 ending scheduling dilemma.
Teledermatology may be a solution for those who hate the wait and have a simple problem that can be treated online. DermatologistOnCall is a teledermatology service that allows evaluation from the comfort of your home. It eliminates the need to wait for an appointment. Forms are online. You can submit your background information, complaint, and pictures via a secure, HIPAA/HITECH compliant, online platform. We diagnose and treat you, usually within 24 hours, and your prescriptions are ready when you arrive at the pharmacy.
