I came in for a cosmetic procedure and paid for the visit. They additionally charged my insurance falsely, and I had to pay a $50 copay. It is impossible to get in contact with anyone there.

I highly recommend Dr. Damstetter. I recently had my first visit with her after an unexpected need to find a new dermatologist. I expressed to her right off the bat my concerns and expectations, and she greeted those with such reassurance. I felt like she did a very thorough examination and explained everything to me as she went. She made me feel at ease and comfortable.

Very friendly and listened to all of my issues and concerns. Very up front with one of then to see my primary doctor to have them send me to a different specialist because it required more indepth to be looked at than she could do for me.

She did a biopsy and recommended that a skin growth be removed even though it was not cancer. The scar looks terrible and the incision has been painful for the past year. When I asked her about my pain she was somewhat defensive and gave me a steroid injection which only helped a little. She replaced a great dermatologist I saw for years at her office who left the practice after it was bought out by a large impersonal derm company. I am not going back to her.

Dr. Damstetter, has a great bed side matter, she very polite, and she explained her thought about my skin condition, in a understanding matter, which mean, even I could understand, I did not leave the office wondering what was my visit about, and that mean a lot to me, she prescribe a cream for my face, with coupons for discounts, which I am using the cream as directed, so far no side effects, and I'm not expecting any, and I hope it does the job for me. Thank you! Dr. Damstetter.

I am more than satisfied with the quality of care I have been receiving from Dr. Damstetter. Finally, after years of unsuccessful treatment, I am seeing results under her care. Dr. Damstetter listens and truly cares about the patients concerns and is determined to help others achieve their goals. Thank you!

I've been seeing Dr. Damstetter for about a year now. She has been a great help in treating my Alopecia and Dermatitis. She is very attentive and gives good direction for steps to treatment. She has even responded quickly to secure mail in Forefront Dermatology's online portal. I also love that she has early hours and can get in before work starts. I would recommend.

Dr. Damstetter was on time and provided very effective treatment. I had two skin issues and she explained the treatment plan and solved both issues for me. I had been to another dermatologist with poor results so I was very happy she was able to help me so quickly. My appointment was on time. Very friendly and efficient office staff.

I had no problem getting an appointment. Wait time was less than a week. Once I got there and filled out the necessary forms I was taken into the examine room. Dr. Damstetter address my concern with care. She is one of the most professional caring and warm doctors i have had.

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.

Dr. Damstetter was so nice and helpful. She took extra time to talk to me about my condition and walk me through all the treatment options. She was very patient with me, and made me feel comfortable. I have already referred several family members to see her.
