Dr. Aftergut was very thorough and made me feel at ease. He is very knowledgeable, as well. I would definitely see him again for all my skincare needs.

Dr Aftergut is a fine doctor but his staff is horrible. I am still furious about the lying, incompetent, office manager. I may be able to talk about it in a month.
in Gun Barrel City, TX |
Came in thinking I would need surgery to take care of a cancerous spot, but was given an option with a 98% cure rate to take care of the problem which was painless and took about a minute! Dr. Aftergut is very easy to talk to, easy to understand and explains your options so you can make your own decision. Even gives you advice as what he would tell his own family on the matter!

I was a little late to my appointment and although the waiting room was packed the front office was very pleasant with me. I am an older lady and that was nice. Once they got clearance from the back office I was given my forms. I was called in very quickly after. Dr Aftergut was very nice and thoughtful and his nurses took their time with assisting me with whatever I needed. I know I repeat myself and forget alot but they always had patience. Very nice people all the way around. I will be back.

Came in to see Dr. Austin and everyone was just so nice and friendly. Dr. Austin was sweet, I highly recommend her.
in Glenn Heights, TX |
Two visits. 1st about cancer on scalp; referred to surgeon, also gave brief standard check. 2nd was standard checkup. He moves quickly; no unnecessary time spent. Examined upper body and legs, asked about concerns, prescribed treatment for lesions. Perhaps moving quickly is why there was no wait time. I was in exam room in a couple of minutes, and he came in about a minute later. I have seen dermatologists who spent more time with me, but I do not feel slighted or that the exam wasn't thorough.
in Palmer, TX |
Every visit is pleasant and professional. Dr. Aftergut is highly knowledgeable and efficient.

There is a reason he makes the top doctor list every year. He is very caring with my children. He is about the only doctor they are not afraid of. Very thorough skin exams. He found a suspicious mole that I did not even know about. I highly recommend.

Great doctor! Very smart and patient. He takes the time to listen and fixed my issue after my first visit with him!
Walked into examining room looked at some areas of upper body. I offered to show him spots that concerned me. He didn't really ask. Never sat down or asked me anything about me. He never moved from his spot between me and the door know. He will get paid for that 4 min. Visit anyway. Gave me some samples and a prescription and off I went. I felt like crying. He should open a drive thru.
