I don't write many reviews but when I do you can bet I mean every word of it. I have been going to Dr. Gurgen for several years now, and I must say I have never been more impressed with his office staff, and Dr. Gurgen himself. They are one of the few doctor offices that truly takes the time to sit and listen to your needs. Imagine that, not feeling like you are being rushed out the door so they can see more patients to make more money. Not here Dr. Gurgen truly only cares about me the patient not the $$ like so many other people. From the moment I walked into the office I was greeted with a smile and made to feel like "Norm of Cheers" (us older people will get the reference). There are no long waits like at other offices where if your appointment is at 1pm you are seen within a few minutes of that time. They value my time while at the same time taking all the time I need to tell them my needs. The office staff really is the cherry on top of the sundae, they truly care and it s

Most of the staff was very professional and kind. Cannot comment on Dr. Gurgeon per se because I went in for an annual check-up and didn’t see him. However, I was disappointed in the young physicians assistant visit. He was very knowledgeable but there were a couple things of concern. I filled out the survey they sent after my visit (which I always appreciate!) and stated my concerns so they would be aware of my experience for their records. All in all, It was an okay, average visit with the PA.

Bill Sangster recommends Lady Lake Dermatology & Mohs Surgery, The Villages. Yesterday at 2:05 PM · From the moment I stepped foot into your office until I walked out the front door, I was greeted by professional clerks, spoken to by caring intake professionals, and treated by a friendly and personal doctor who was both informative and understanding to my situation. I would not hesitate to recommend your clinic to anyone who needed to see a Dermatologist. Please take these comments as my thank you to all of you for your help.

"Great, based on my cousins recommendation I was very confident that my concerns would be addressed with the upmost care and professionalism. Well, it exceeded my expectations, from the front office staff all the way to the Dr. Gurgen. Everyone was very friendly and eager to assist in any way possible. All procedures leading to the surgery were explained and questions answered. I am very happy with the outcome of the surgery. I will return for future skin cancer screenings with Dr. Gurgen."

I recently moved to this area and needed to continue yearly skin exams. I’m so glad I found this place. Everyone was very pleasant and explained exactly what they were doing. John Kelly did a thorough exam and found I needed 2 biopsy’s. I needed Mohs surgery on my nose, but was caught early. Dr. Gurgen performed the surgery and did a wonderful job, got it all on the first round. His staff are very compassionate making sure I was comfortable physically and mentally. I highly recommend Dr. Gurgen and his staff at Leesburg Dermatology and Mohs Surgery.

I have had only positive experiences with this practice, from the front desk to the last suture. I have been going here for 3 or 4 years now and Michael does an excellent and thorough skin exam; if he has any doubts, he takes the cautious approach and biopsies. I have had one pre-cancer frozen off, numerous other spots zapped, and now 4 basal cancers removed, all without any issues other than one on my shoulder developed some scar tissue, which they addressed without further charge to me. I completely trust the staff here and how they operate.

Routine follow-on check after having several benign moles frozen. I was seen precisely at my scheduled time, the staff were welcoming and efficient. I received a comprehensive checkup, including areas I had questions about. The explanations I received were in terms I could easily understand. I was advised of changes, if observed, should be brought to the attention of the Doctor without waiting for a schedules appointment. Overall, I feel comfortable with this practice and would (and have) recommend them to friends
