She finally got my skin cleared up for many years of other doctors saying it was a fungus and it was a skin psoriasis and she has been working for several months and we are getting a clear skin on my hands and elbows. I thank you for your help and helping me get rid of the psoriasis on my skin for it is really great to have her helping me to have clear skin.

She took her time examining me and took a biopsy of the small red spot on my face which turned out to be cancerous. Very thorough physician and friendly staff

Was way overcharged for service at Forefront Dermatology. Please if you are a customer avoid at all costs. They charge 5xs. more than even a plastic surgeon in the area in both billing and lab fees. Buyer beware.

Melissa was great, however the billing office transparency is awful. Their rates are roughly 5x's higher than other dermatologists in the area for basic services. They are not transparent with their fees and services even if you request an estimate(which will likely never be accurate). highly recommend people look somewhere else. I am still waiting on their billing office to return a call on their crazy overcharges and the lack of clarity that patient and lab services are billed separately.
