Dr Germain is the best dermatologist l know. I see her medically and cosmetically and she is a master at her craft. I will never let another doctor touch my face. She is personable, gentle and takes her time when I'm with her. A true professional. Her staff is amazing and very knowledgeable about all Dr Germains products, procedures and all the other wonderful treatments and services they offer. There is a reason she keeps getting voted best dermatologist!

I would never go back to Dr. Germaine. On 4/1/19 , she gave me a shot that resulted in blood in my eye ,swolleness, bruising and an excruciating headache . When I went to her office, she was annoyed and dismissive . She actually threw her hands in the air and informed me she had no answers .. she referred me to a plastic surgeon who kindly said , that in time my eye would heal.It's been 19 days and I'm better but not I still have headaches.

Don't waste your time here. It is a posh, snotty business with rude, touched up clones of the management. Doctor bills herself a renaissance woman, and that rings true if insincerity and arrogance are characteristic of such an overinflated designation. Do your homework and believe the "real" reviews. This is a bottom-line machine with no tolerance for patients' needs or concerns. Glitz does not equal competency.

Dr Germain is dedicated to providing excellent care and service to her patients. She is thorough in her medical exams and is an expert in the cosmetic field. I have personally experienced the deep compassion she demonstrates with her patients and her determination to find a resolution if possible. Her staff, like Katie who assisted me today, are friendly and helpful and strive to enhance the customer experience.

I've been taking my children to Germain Dermatology for 1 year and had to sit down and write a review on how friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and professional the staff is there. It starts with the front-line girls Lauren, Emily, Hannah, Allie, & Kate. All are extremely polite and accommodating, and it blossoms from there with Michael & Louisa adding their experience/insight to help create the best possible skin care regimen. I highly recommend them for all your family's dermatological needs!

Dr. Germain is a doctor who doesn't make you feel as if you are on an assembly line. She fit me in to her very busy schedule last minute and still took her time with me and answered all my questions. She was very honest, supportive, and thorough when explaining the process. She is a professional and has a naturally lovely personality. I would recommend Dr. Germain to everyone!

Impressive commercial operation that quickly moved me from the medical side of practice (I initially came in for rosacea) to cosmetic side. After 2 years as a patient, I was casually given a tentative diagnosis for lupus, then sent home to wait 2 wks for test results. 2 wks later, told results not given over phone & had to make an appt. After month of tense waiting, told results were inconclusive but "probably lupus". When I complained about wait, was given my file and told to find another Dr!

I love being a patient of hers. However, I feel like I was unjustly charged for a service that I had prepaid for. I discussed this with the office staff, but was not satisfied with the result. I will get these treatments somewhere else in the future.

Earlier this year, Dr. Germain found a spot on my left shoulder that needed to be removed. She scheduled an appointment for me to see Dr. Joe McGowan in her practice. Like Dr. Germain, I found Dr. McGowan very professional and thorough in his explanation as to the procedure he was going to perform on my back. Following my surgery, Dr. McGowan personally followed up with me regarding how I was doing, something that is rare these days. True professionals! Highly recommended.

I have been Dr G's patient for 9 years for medical and asethetic dermatology treatments. She is a knowledgeable, highly competent, caring practitioner, always puts her patients first and strives for results that leave you looking and feeling the best you can be. I especially appreciate that she emphasizes inner beauty and a less is more approach. I just received my annual cosmetic refreshment filler treatment and I am as pleased with the results as I have ever been!
