I’ve been going to Skin Solutions for many years and have seen Dr. Pena, JoEllen and for the last few years ...Daryl Smith. They are all fantastic! I go to the Pulaski office. The office staff is so pleasant.

I have had Moh's surgery several times in the last year. Dr. Pena performed all the surgery's. She is kind and professional and always answers all my questions. Everyone in the offices are exceptional in making you feel like you are their only patient and that they care for you. Dr. Pena and JoElla Dyson are great.

JoEllen Dyson in the Cool Springs office has a comforting bedside manner, performs a detailed examination and explains her diagnosis and treatment plan in a very understandable fashion. I recommend her highly.

I have been seeing Skin Solutions for nearly 8 years. Dr. Smith has been my provider at the Columbia location and is very thorough in his examinations with me (twice a year) and had performed surgery for cancer removal from my wrist. He has biopsied several placed of concern and recently discovered a cancer spread on my nose and scheduled me for Mohs Surgery with Dr. Pena. I have a history of skin cancer and Skin Solution is my go to provider for scans and treatment.

I have been very happy with the staff at Skin Solutions for the past decade. Jo Ellen is my primary skin specialist. She is attentive and proactive. I had a carcinoma on my hand about 8 years ago and she removed it and have had no more problems with it.

I saw Dr. Pena in the Columbia office for mohs surgery on my ear. She was good at answering any questions I had and giving me after surgery instructions right from the beginning. She and the nurses there did a great job, very nice. I felt good having her doing this surgery because she has a lot of experience doing these. Thanks!

I've been a patient of skin solutions (usually Jo Ellen) for about 8 years and do at least an annual visit. They can usually fit me in pretty quick. I think they run a good shop and I trust their diagnosis. A couple of times they have prescribed a cream that did not work, but I think you really don't know until you see how it reacts to your skin. 4.5 rating.
