Dr Fairhurst is an excellent dr but every time we go, it is a minimum of a 30 minute wait but usually more. Today, we waited 55 minutes for a less than 5 minute appt. Yes, Dr. Fairhurst was in with my son for less than 5 minutes. That is fine except for the extreme wait. & there was one apptwhen it was 90 minutes. Each time they apologize like it is not a regular occurrence but its is always like this. I rushed to be on time for my appointment. I took time away from my work. Bad business!

Seen fairhurst several times.. Recently realized that he missed a skin cancer even after doing a exam. He sent me upstairs for it to be cosmetically treated.

I had doctors look at a skin irritation that bothered me for years on my finger. They always seem to think it was nothing. I went to Dr. Fairhurst and he immediately suspected a cancer and did a biopsy that came back positive for squamous cell cancer. He treated it over a period of months with a relatively new non-surgical method that resulted in a complete end to the cancer. I was very impressed. I don't impress easy.

I have seen Dr. Fairhurst for two different skin conditions. In both cases, his diagnosis was immediate, accurate and complete. The latter required minor, outpatient surgery in his office. Both his nurse and he were kind, quick and left me pain free. His is extremely thorough with his follow ups and always available for any problem and/or issue. I recommend him highly.

Dr Fairhurst is very competent and helpful. I have taken my son in for care for the past year and he has been most helpful.
Excellent doctor with a beautiful office and great staff
