Staff was knowledgeable and efficient working with my 16 yr old daughter. Staff worked with her to help ease her anxiety as she had to get a spot removed from her back. Doctor made sure she was comfortable with procedure before beginning.

Poor service. Sub par attention and care. Felt like a chop shop. MD Consult was less than one minute, used expired topical medication. We were billed $400 with zero results. Very dissatisfied.

Very friendly staff, who listened to my concerns (everything from rosesa to acne to family history of skin cancer). Talked to me about options for treatment & took no chances with concerning moles. Highly recommend.
