Dr. Brackeen is an excellent dermatologist. He's knowledgeable in skin care and skin cancer. He takes time with his patients and has a great bedside manner. Plus his office is really nice and comfortable. It's also easy to get a quick appointment with him!

Dr. Brackeen is the best!! He is knowledgeable, makes you feel like a person and not just another number coming through the door. He takes his time, cares about your concerns, very professional and makes the patient super comfortable. I would highly recommend his practice!

Love this guy!! Down to earth and thorough. I have been to two other dermatologists in town and a family doctor who pretended to be a dermatologist for a few skin issues (they shall remain nameless); I have been underwhelmed, to say the least. Dr. Brackeen is different - you can tell that he cares. My skin problems have already improved. If you are reading this review, don't waste your time going anywhere else!

Excellent!!! Spent over an hour examining my skin. It's taken me 4 other Dr.'s to finally find one that will take the time to treat you like a patient. I highly recommend this Dr.!

"Dr. Jeffrey Brackeen was great! He sat with me for about 45 minutes asking me questions about my skin condition, then gave me a very thorough explanation of how we would go about treating it. He was very personable and I will definitely go back to him."

Dr. Brackeen is amazing! I have been to two other dermatologists. One was in and out of the room so fast I don't think he saw my face much less my skin. The other biopsied three normal areas of my skin but missed the melanoma on my back that Dr. Brackeen found later (along with three other skin cancers). I love Dr. Jeff, he is a great doc and a great surgeon. I wouldn't trust my skin to anyone else!
