No doctor here, just extenders.
Dr. Pena is our Medical Director. She sees patients at each location. When not in clinic, she is doing surgery. We are hiring other physicians as our practice is growing rapidly. Physician assistants and nurse practitioners see the majority of our patients at all our locations. We are proud of all of our providers and the dedication they have for our patients. Dr. Pena is accessible to all of them daily. We are sorry that you were unhappy. Please call us to discuss your concerns in detail.

Both my parents before us& my husband& myself have been under Dr Pena's care for many years. Her skill& care are awesome. We all have required treatment for skin cancers.we would never go to anyone else for skin care.Jo Simpson
Hi Jo! Thank you so much for your great review. We are honored to know that you and your family allow us to take care of all your skin care needs!
Franklin, TN |
Skin issues can lead to depression. I thank God for Dr Pena and all the people that work there. All the providers meet with Dr Pena to discuss the best way to treat different skin issues so it really doesn't matter who you see - you will get the same outcome. They actually listen! They care about their patients. In the past few years the staff has changed a lot but you can tell it's because they are trying to find the best people for each job. Thank you Skin Solutions - for everything!!!!!!
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. We want each patient to receive the professional care that they expect to get and the compassion that they deserve.
Nashville, TN |
Several of my family members go to Skin Solutions Dermatology and they take great care of each one of us! Sometimes there is a wait out in the lobby - but for the best care possible it is worth it
Thank you so much for your review! We are working hard to improve the patient wait times.
in Nashville, TN |
From the time you arrive you feel welcome and at ease. All the staff are friendly, helpful and perform in a very professional manner. They make sure you understand all procedures and that you are given typed and verbal instructions before discharge.
Hi Judith! Thank you for your great review! We want each patient to have the best care possible each time they come to any of our locations.
in Bowling Green, KY |
I moved away from Columbia, TN four years ago. I appreciate their service enough that I will take the time to make appointments in Columbia, TN or Franklin, TN versus finding a dermatologist in Bowling Green, KY.
Your loyalty to our practice means a lot to us. We want to thank you for the relationship that you have built with us. Thanks for this great review!!!
Dr. Pena performed Mohs surgery on my nose. Her and her PA, Laura Bauer, are wonderful! It has been 4 months since my surgery and everyone tells me they can't even tell I have had surgery on my nose. Thanks so much Dr. Pena and Laura for taking such good care of me!
We are honored to have you as our patient and want to thank you for this review. Our goal is for all of patients to have complete trust in the care that we provide.

Thank you so much for building a relationship with us that will hopefully last a lifetime. We want every patient to have the same experiences that you have had

Dr. Pena is very professional and personable....she has performed three surgeries on me, and each turned out positive. The staff at Skin Soultions is very through, and have caught several problem areas in the early stages, for which I am grateful. I recommend them highly.

I have been a patient of Dr Pena's group in Columbia TN for 3 years and I am very satisfied with my treatment, with the office staff and the experiences that I have had with them. I certainly would recommend Skin Solutions to anyone who is interested in a dermatology appointment.
Thank you for allowing us to take care of you Rebecca and thank you so much for your kind words!

My husband and I made our annual skin check with Dr. Pena. We were both very pleased with the experience. She took her time thoroughly checking the entire skin surface. She is professional. She listened to our concerns and answered all questions in detail, making sure we understood her explanation. I strongly recommend Dr. Pena.
Thank you so much for this great review and for trusting Skin Solutions Dermatology with all your skin care needs.
in Pulaski , TN |
I have been dealing with psoriasis for many years and no dermatologist really seemed to offer any help. Darryl Smith was very approachable and listened to my symptoms. He wasn't in a hurry and didn't rush out of the exam room. The staff as a whole in the Pulaski office are kind, courteous and it's obvious that they enjoy their job. I would recommend this practice to anyone in need of a dermatologist.
Thank you so much Christina! We are very blessed to have such great providers at all six of our locations! We have worked hard to make sure we have the right people for our work environment. Thank you for your great review!
Franklin, TN |
Dr. Pena removed skin cancer from my nose. I was amazed when it healed and the scar is almost invisible. I couldn't be more satisfied. JoEllyn Dyson (PA-C) sees me twice a year and has removed several basal cell and squamous cell cancers, as well as treating the precancerous spots before they cause a problem. I highly recommend her for your skin care needs.
Thank you so much for trusting us to take care of all your skin care needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Dr. Pena removed a basal cell carcinoma from my nose. I knew nothing about this diagnosis before my biopsy, but she took the time to explain the condition and informed me properly beforehand about the surgery. I was nervous about the procedure, but she and her staff were patient and professional. I will continue to trust her with any future skin issues that arise.
We want each and every patient to have the same experiences that you have Janet. Thank you so much for your comments and for allowing us to take care of all your skin care needs.

Lawrenceburg, TN |
Terrible bedside manner. I have never been spoken to so ugly by someone who is supposed to uphold professionalism. I left crying. Not only do I still have the mole on my face, I am now left with a huge scar.
It's disappointing to know that your visit was not what you expected it to be. Our goal is to treat each patient as we would want to be treated. Because your name is not included on this review, we can not call you. But we would like to speak with you. Our number is 615-224-2668. There are ways to improve the appearance of the scar and we would be happy to discuss that with you.

I have been going to Dr.Pena's office for several years now and have always been pleased with my results. On my last visit I was informed by Walt that the procedure that I had scheduled was no longer needed. I really appreciate his integrity and thoroughness. The staff is very professional and friendly. I do recommend this office.
