Dr.Fortson changed my life. I was seeking help for my severe acne. Dr.Fortson reccomended accutane but my family didn't have health insurance and couldn't afford the meds. Dr.Fortson knew it was the only effective treatment for me and was gracious enough to supply me each month with the manufacturer samples. My acne cleared up within months, and has stayed clear 14 years now after being off the meds. I can't thank Dr.Fortson enough for what she has done for me. I highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr. Fortson for about three years now. She treats my hair thinning which really isn't so thin any longer. I appreciate the help she has given me in that area, however there are a few other things she has treated successfully for me. She does a wonderful job keeping me very refreshed and young looking with few but selective facial fillers and I recently had her remove a 'growing' mole from my chin that used to resemble a beauty mark when was younger and it looks great!
