Highly professional and competent. I have had two Mohs procedures performed by Dr. Nern. The first one was completed in one try, the second one, in a different area, took six attempts to clear the cancer. Thanks Both surgeries required extensive reconstruction which Dr. Nern performed to my complete satisfaction. IAlso, all of Dr. Nern's staff are highly professional and compassionate. We have switched our dermatology needs from Ohio to Vail Dermatology.

I went to Dr. Nern to see about looking less tired and grouchy. I'd had Botox and filler done by a Denver plastic surgeon before and I wasn't all that trilled with the results but I needed to do something. I am so glad I chose Dr. Nern. Her approach was totally different and my results far exceeded my expectations. She took the time to analyze my face and discussed a customized approach with me. Instead of just filling the wrinkles she actually lifted my face a bit which smoothed the wrinkles in
