Dr. Armstrong listens! I mean REALLY listens and provides options to treatment that work. He explains things thoroughly and in a way that you can understand. I have searched for years for something to address my hyperpigmentation, and have tried many types of treatments. Dr. Armstrong listened to all that I’ve tried, gave me options on what to try next, gave me his advice, and now I’m happy to report that I FINALLY have something that WORKS! My confidence has been boosted and I’m grateful to have such an amazing dermatologist.

I have seen this Dr 4 times. I was wearing the same type of mask every time, this last appointment he asked me to wear two masks, the one I already had on and handed me one of theirs, I told him flat out no, I have no systems or temperature. He says it was policy but he would let it go this time. I checked all the staff in the building as I walked out, not one staff member had two masks on. This guy has a power trip or he is paranoid. I wont be back...

Super happy with the results I received from the surgery on my neck. You never know what is going to happen when you see a doctor for the first time. Well, my first visit was outstanding!!! Dr. Armstrong performed surgery on my neck to remove a growth. Zero pain during surgery and Zero pain after surgery. The mark of a great surgeon!!! He really focused his full attention during my surgery and it made me feel real comfortable. A shout out to the nurse that helped during my surgery. So sweet!!! Thanks to Dr. Carty. (Cool Carty) for recommending me!!! Also a shout out to the awesome ladies out front that greet you when you arrive. A real joy!!!

Because of my skin type, I have had multiple problems throughout the years, and because of that I've had the occasion to see multiple doctors. I am truly amazed at how very thorough Dr. Armstrong is. He did a complete scan and found several areas of concern, that were left undiagnosed by previous doctors. He is personable and definitely knows his profession. I would certainly recommend Dr. Armstrong to anyone. He's GOOD! ??

Dr. Armstrong was very interested and attentive to my skin issues. His initial observation of my skin condition was correct (several past dermatologists we not able to make an accurate diagnosis that resulted in shots of prednisone as a "temporary fix" as well as costing me time and money). Dr. Armstrong prescribed topical medications which had me "back on my feet" within a couple weeks of my initial consultation. I would highly recommend Dr. Armstrong to my friends and family members.

My husband has been suffering from itching and a breakout of blisters on his skin. Dr. Armstrong immediately recognized the problem, did skin biopsies to confirm his diagnosis, and treated it accordingly. Dr, Armstrong is a very bright, intelligent, personable young man and we are so very happy with his care. We highly recommend him!
