I have been a patient of Dr. Rotter and her husband for many years. Both are outstanding dermatologists. Dr. Fran is a thorough examiner and complete in her diagnosis. She is very personable; you have no doubt that you are in capable and caring hands. Dr.'s Rotter employ an exceptional staff and maintain a medical facility of their own design. It is an exceptional practice.

She’s great. I drive considerably further to get her services rather than Drs about 5 minutes away.

Yearly exam - always very thorough and great “bedside manner” - interested in the patient professionally and personal well-being. My husband & I have been seeing her for years and wouldn’t consider another dermatologist. A+++

Since have been visiting with and treated Dr. Rotter these several years there has been no need for any skin surgery. My previous physician always found a need for surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Rotter

I have looked for years to find a great dermatologist and am so thankful to have found Dr. Rotter! She really looks at your skin when doing a skin check not just a sweeping gaze and looks in your hair and between your toes, something my other doctors never did. She even takes photos if needed to see if certain spots change! She is thorough and explains things in terms you can understand putting your fears and anxiety at rest.
