My husband was referred to Dr. Housel by his dermatologist in Utica because he needed MOHS surgery for basal cell cancer. The entire experience has been stellar from start to finish. Dr. Housel is incredibly personable, skilled and caring. He actually called my husband the evening of the surgery to check on him! Incredible in this day and age. The facility is gorgeous and all the personnel were upbeat and interested in my husband’s comfort and understanding of exactly what was happening. Brittany was exceptional. Would we both recommend Dr. Housel? Absolutely without a doubt. I should add that I was welcomed warmly as well. The outcome of the surgery is excellent and we could not be more pleased.

Elizabeth Robinson (Ron) – Aug 19, 2021
Went to my first visit at Housel Dermatology and all I can say is “WOW”. Everyone from the minute I walked in the door made me feel welcome and we genuinely concerned about my issues. I had gone to other Dermatologists but none ever took the time with me that Dr Housel and his staff did. They went above and beyond the call to help get me the prescription medications that other dermatologists said would not be covered by insurance. They promptly reported to me the results of blood test and biopsies. I am thankful for finally finding a practice that cares for their patients. You all ROCK. Thank you ??

I cant not say enough good things about Dr. Housel and his office!!! Ever since the first time I walked into his office to have surgery done on my FACE I felt like I was in great hands! I run a physician office myself and know how one should be run. Dr. Housel and his staff exceeded my expectations!!!! Even-though I have to drive an hour to get to his office I changed to him for all of my dermatology needs!!!

I first came to Dr. Housel to have a Pilar cyst removed from my head. Both he and the staff are very professional and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable and at ease. I was so pleased with this practice that I returned for my skincare needs and am currently doing chemical peels to renew my skin and give it a healthy glow. I plan to continue an anti-aging regimen using their skincare line after I’m done with the peels. I highly recommend this practice for any of your skincare needs or concerns.

Best run office I've ever been in!! – Jun 22, 2021
I had a biopsy done for genetic testing. Two nurses handled this beautifully. Very clean room and cheerful, efficient staff. I have had several squamous and basal spots surgically removed in the past by Dr Housel. He is proficient in Mohs surgery. I have never experienced pain except for the small sting of anesthetic. The nurse practioners check me every six months. They know what they are doing!

I was referred to this office by a coworker. The thought of someone checking every inch of your body is not pleasant. The staff could not have been more non-intrusive and polite. They easily took my mind off of their assessment. Unfortunately, I did require a surgical intervention for one area on my arm and I can not praise this practice enough. Professional, kind, and so attentive. Dr. Housel is fantastic! His keen sense of humor and obvious awesome rapport with his staff was so impressive! Having the lab right on the premises made it very easy for him to assure he got it all, not requiring me to have to come back! Hands down, the best office experience I’ve had in years!

Meri Asmus – Jun 14, 2021
After going to another dermatologist in the area, who neglected to listen to my concerns about a spot on my leg for 2 years, a biopsy was finally done. When I received a diagnosis that it was a carcinoma, I was shocked and I knew that I had to go to another dermatologist. I called the office of Dr. Joseph Housel, (Housel Dermatology) and asked if they were taking new patients. The office said "yes", and I told them my story and that I was scared. I had never met Dr. Housel and within two weeks of that phone call, surgery was scheduled right before Christmas. I met this wonderful doctor and his awesome staff the day of my surgery. Dr. Housel performed the surgery and got all of the carcinoma. It was the best Christmas present I could ever received. I would recommend Dr. Housel and his awesome caring and professional staff to everyone. I thank God my friend told me about Housel Dermatology. Dr. Housel saved my life!!!!!
