Very welcoming and professional staff that accommodated my needs. Was called back to the room very very fast. Nurse made sure we covered what I wanted to see Dr. Ducharme about. Not too long after the Nurse left Dr. Ducharme was right in. She gave me great advice on how to take care of my skin more. I recommend Dr. Ducharme. Professional on all levels.

Dr. Ducharme was great when I went in after seeing different dermatologists and doctors to help with my cystic acne. I had been through many different treatments and it was a constant cycle of creams, pills and birth controls. Dr. Ducharme listened to me and we decided the best treatment option would be accutane. She has been great through this journey and I know I can ask her anything about this treatment. She's a wonderful dermatologist, person, and is highly intelligent in her field!

Comprehensive, compassionate, radically convenient care. Takes time with her patients, writes down important instructions, and offers excellent products in house for convenience. She goes the extra mile for patients and does a fantastic job. Also, she does a great job as a surgeon when removing unsightly skin cancers. I would trust her with the care of my wife and children.

Dr Ducharme was very knowledgeable and left me feeling more confident whereas I had been anxious before going. I left feeling that I had received a well thought out and expert opinion on a skin lesion that had bothered me for a while. I hope that I do not need to go back but am confident in the expertise I would receive if it is necessary.

I had a cyst on my back. Dr Ducharme expertly removed it and stitched the wound. She is kind, professional and respects your time.

She was flippant and cold and showing off for the med student who was shadowing her. I felt like a piece of meat as she swept in and out, brushing off any questions I had. My sister also had a similar experience. I'm happy that she is no longer in practice where I am.
