,The staff and Dr Ratner are warm and welcoming. Dr Ratner resected a melanoma lesion on my face. Even though there were many stitches, the scar is barely visible. She is truly a meticulous and competent surgeon.

Dr Ratner was very kind and easy to work with. When I told her that I had a young rambunctious toddler at home, she recommended a carcinoma removal procedure that took that well into account. Her staff was professional, friendly and worked with me to get my new health insurance information into their system.

Dr. Ratner has performed MOHS surgery on both my wife and myself. In the case of my wife, the surgery was extensive, and it was on my wife's face. It is almost impossible to now to see that there was any surgery at all. I am extremely impressed with the results of Dr. Ratner's surgery, and as a bonus she is a very nice person with a great bedside manner. I do not exaggerate.

From the beginning when Dr. Ratner's staff explained how things worked through the various medical procedures, I always had a clear idea of what was happening. Regarding the surgery itself, Dr. Ratner made every effort not only to deal with the cancer (which was by my knee) but also to ensure that I would have no problems walking. Dr. Ratner & her staff have my sincere and heartfelt gratitude for their efforts.

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Ratner. I had to have something removed from my upper-lip in a very difficult spot and it healed beautifully. She is timely, talented, personable and simply wonderful in every way (as is her staff). 5 stars all around from procedure to instructions and follow-up and care. I am grateful to have been referred to her for this procedure and thank her for her work :)

No comparison to previous experiences in other medical settings. Not only is Dr Ratner tops in her field but she has established a practice in a setting that is so welcoming, so calm,so pleasant,so caring! She obviously knew what was needed and made sure to include it all. Bravo Dr Ratner! There need to be more like you and your staff!

Dr. Ratner removed a skin cancer on my nose. She did a wonderful job. It was painless and the results are terrific. One can barely see that I had stitches on my nose.
