I highly recommend Dr. Schlessinger and Jackie and his staff!! They've always been accommodating to my schedule, you are in fast and your issues are handled with efficiency. I have been coming to this office for over 12 years when he caught my first skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma and he is diligent and doesn't waste time dealing with issues. I also love the Lovelyskin care products, they work!!! I've been using the same skin regimen he started me on back then and it still works and it lasts me about 4 months. He and his staff are wonderful!!

Dr. Joel Schlessinger and his staff at Lovely Skin have been excellent in caring for our family from our sons' teenage acne prone years and our adult issues with growths and sun damage issues. The staff is kind, caring and competent from the moment one calls through the entire examination, treatement, and ongoing visit process. Always pleasant, always careful to draw out all questions and concerns, and always great technique. Linda Janssen Gjere
