Dr Damstetter has been a wonderful dermatologist for me. I went to her for both Male Pattern Baldness and adult acne about 6 months ago. My hair is now almost as full as it was before I started losing hair and my face is as clear as its been in years with some creative regimens for both. She also recently removed a cyst from my back. I was in and out of the office in 20 mins after receiving the "small procedure". She is young and very helpful and has an amazing staff. Would recommend her to all!

It is always the best experience when you feel like your Doctor is vested and interested in your well being and talks to you honestly about the best options for you. That is exactly what I experienced on my first visit with Dr. Damstetter. She also treated me in a friendly manner as did her staff.

I came for routine screening of skin growths and to consult on a specific problem. The general screening seemed a bit casual - less systematic than I had before, but she noted a variety of benign growths. She made a probable diagnosis of my itching problem, discussed that, and prescribed an ointment (which helped). I asked the nurse to write down the diagnosis - good move! She gave me a printed report with more details than the doctor provided. It also said I was told some things that I wasn't.

Very thorough with checking all moles and informing me the specific medical name for the different moles that she found and whether to be concerned or not. I really liked that. I also asked her to check my scalp after reading about a lady whose hair stylist noticed something on her scalp. Dr. Damstetter had no problem with that and did a thorough check. She is very personable and I am fortunate to have her close by. Two other of my family members have seen her also.
