Other Dr.’s said I would have to wait 4 months for an appointment. Dr. Rustad’s office was able to get my husband in the next morning. They understood the pain and confusion of not knowing what was happening. Highly recommended.

Wow Dr. Rustad has is entirely rude. He didn't even glance at me to look at what I was seeing him for before he stuck his nose in the chart and came up with a diagnosis. He didn't close the door when he walked in- I finally asked him to close it. He lectured me on a skin care product I use without offering any alternatives. He prescribed me something that isn't working, and his receptionist won't tell me my diagnosis over the phone as she says my chart isn't finalized 10d later!!!!!

Biopsy indicated precancerous- Rustad told me come back in two months and if condition changed he would freeze it off - It changed within weeks and when I came back he didn't remember me, his nurse couldn't read his result and he accused me of scratching it to make it inflammed and offered me cream - I walked out very insulted - Mind you this is only part of the story - Do not risk time on this doctor

Dr Rustad is an EXCELLENT dermatologist. He has taken care of me on several occasions and I've been 100% completely satisfied. He has treated the back of my hand a growth, removed skin tags and age spots from the backs of both hands. His demeanor is terrific and he's very easy to talk with. I had a fungal growth on my groin area and he knew how to get rid of it prior to my big rectal cancer surgery.

I would highly recommend coming to Rustad Dermatology, as my experience here has been very positive, and I have had wonderful results. Everyone in the clinic is very kind and creating a positive environment. I struggled with acne, and the results have been wonderful! My acne is gone with very little to no scars on my face. I would highly recommend making an appointment to see such rewarding results.
