This was my first time with Dr. Futrell. She was very concerning, helpful with advice, very educated Lady. She treated me as if I was the only patient in her office. Felt comfortable, assured, and will definitely return. Office staff was super great.

Dr. Futrell has been the BEST Dermatologist I have ever been treated by, whether it’s been Medical or Cosmic. She spends a lot of time with me & helps me make the decisions about what needs to be done or what the best treatments are for what) I’m trying to achieve on both aspects. Since I started seeing her about 3 yrs ago I have had many compliments & comments about the improvements in my skin (even under the bright lights of the hygienists chair! )??The nurses have all been so sweet & attentive. I have & will continue to drive from West TX to stay under her care. I highly recommend Dr. Futrell hope that this review helps you in deciding to make the BEST choice for you skin!

After telling this Dr. several times the top of my ear was sore she would look at it and tell me I had a little scar tissue there. Recently I went to a different Dr. who told me that was skin cancer. He took a sample and sent it off for a biopsy. Came back positive for cancer. Now I look like I have been bitten by a shark.

I am 34wks pregnant and went to see Dr. Futrell to look at a very itchy rash that has recently appeared. After deciding it did not look like PUPPPs (the most common pregnancy rash) she deemed it necessary to do a punch biopsy for this rash (not recommended by the AAFP I later found out). My experience with this doctor was very rushed and not informative at all. She was not personable and told me what I had been doing to help (that worked) was a waste of time. I do NOT recommend her.
