Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I went to his office once to have some skin tags removed. Dr. Challgren immediately handed me off to a PA. He didn't try to connect with me as a patient at all - barely gave me 5 mins of his time. I wouldn't recommend him.

I appreciate having a Dr. who is compassionate and LISTENS. I actually think he reviews your chart after your visit and tries to "connect the dots" to better understand your concerns. I think he's a very dedicated Dr. and I'd recommend him to anyone with a skin condition. He explains his diagnosis and his recommendation for treatment. He is very thorough. The only drawback I have to this office is the nurse on my last two visits. She was both, rude and condescending before the Dr. came in for the consult and again when he left the room. The same thing happened on my last visit. The front desk staff is always courteous and friendly.

Excellent! Dr. Challgren removed a gangelion cyst from my scalp in 2005. After 2 previous surgeries I found Dr. Challgren. He was patient, knowledgeable and had phenomenal bedside manner. I recovered expediently, minimal scaring and haven't had any issue with the cyst since. I highly recommend Dr. Challgren!

Dr. Challgren was very professional and courteous. He and his staff were very helpful providing me with exceptional care. They followed up with my test results very quickly. I Highly recommend him as a doctor. I was treated for my acne which has now cleared up and I haven’t had a problem since.

First: Dr. Challgren is a very nice man and maybe a good dermatologist. However, according to his office staff, "The doctors have no idea how much things cost the patient or how procedures are charged. So you can't depend on them to give you any information on that." In the current world of high deductibles, ignorance of charges hurts people . Saying off-hand, "I'll just hit that benign spot while I'm at it." and then hitting me with an extra $150 charge at check out is not OK.

I came in to receive treatment for a potential basil cell carcinoma spot, used the medical spray which seemed to have been placed for a duration that was too long because there is a large scar now on my leg and has been this way for almost a year now. It's disappointing because I have received the same treatment in the past from other facilities and I did not experience anything like this before.

Each year I go in for an annual check-up, he on average spent less than 5 minutes with me, knowing I have a family history of skin cancer. This past visit I showed him an area, he stated it was ok. 3 months later went in for annual physical, family doctor said I need to go to a Dermatologist as he was sure it was cancer, it was. Only hope he does a better job with others.
