I saw Dr. Despain twice. He is very professional and friendly. I appreciated him so much because he helped me with a very difficult health matter. Another dermatologist and the dermatology clinic in Columbia MO dissapointed me greatly. I wished I would have found this doctor earlier.

Overall great experience on both visits. Staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. DeSpain took his time answering my questions about a chest lesion (and gave the recommendation to have it removed. It turned out to be a pre-cancerous basal cell carcinoma), shave excision for facial nevi, and laser/IPL reduction. I don’t plan on going anywhere else for my dermatology needs. Gina

I recently contracted with Despain for a (non-insured) derma procedure. While treatments were in progress I found the contract was not as I had understood it to be--it was going to cost me twice as much as I had believed. I was shocked and expressed this to the technician. I tried for several days to reach someone in the office for an explanation, or at least a discussion. They ignored my calls and I have had to go elsewhere for the work. My advice: Do not believe their treatment quotes.

Went to Despain for a tattoo removal. Worked with Julie. They were so professional & accomidating, they worked around my crazy work schedule and had me in & out in 30 minutes!!!! AWSOME customer service. Pricing is much cheaper than I expected and hurts way less than I thought it would. I will recommend Despain to anyone I run into in the future who could use their services!! Thank you to Julie & Despain!! Chris V.
