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.

Dr (Painless) Paul has an empathic bedside manner, the staff and he also have a nice sense of humor. He is actually the first one to tell me how to treat my dermatitis. I was not there for that but for a skin cancer.

I honestly think Dr. Paulson and his staff are great. I've never waited more than 10 minutes past my appointment time and I see the doctor right away. Dr. Paulsin always makes sure all my questions are answered and I understand everything. The medical staff is always very nice and so are the receptionists.

Called on Wednesday, got an appointment for Thursday. Wait time was under 10 minutes. Dr. Paulson and his medical assistant explained what they would do and how they would do it. They also answered a couple of questions I had fully, completely and cordially. No muss, no fuss, no rush!

I was a bit apprehensive going to see a new doctor, dr. Paulson. I had been seeing dr. English for years before I moved away. Dr. Paulson was very kind very knowledgeable and very attentive. I will be happy to continue with him as my new dermatologist.

Worst MD I've ever seen, in any specialty. Failed to perform basic physical exam. Idiotic discharge instructions and misdiagnosis.

I was very impressed that I was able to get a same-week appointment so that my medical concerns could be addressed. Dr. Paulson and his medical assistant were both excellent. They examined the growth, numbed the area and removed it to be sent for a biopsy, all on the initial visit. Who could ask for more than that? In addition, all of my questions were answered, and Dr. Paulson did a complete examination of the rest of my torso to check for anything else suspicious.

Dr. Paulson is a very pleasant Dr. It was a refreshing experience. I haven't met a Dr. like him in a long while, and i'm 58 years old. I felt like I was in good hands with Dr. Paulson and I am even looking forward to going back in two weeks to see what my diagnosis is. Thank you to Dr. Paulson and his nurse, (I apologize I forgot your name), who is just as equally pleasant.

Dr. Paulson is amazing. Went to him a few times and was clear on everything and what needed to be done. Told me what to do to eliminate skin cancer and would continually ask me if I'm doing it. He just left Las Vegas and now in Arizona so I'll definitely miss him.
