Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Ness was kind enough to offer complimentary skin cancer screenings one day during Skin Cancer Awareness month. I participated in that screening resulting in having a suspicious mole removed. I had a wonderful experience with her team - all were professional, polite and patient-focused. I highly recommend this Dermatology Clinic and will return again for annual skin cancer checks.

Excellent. I have recommended to family who have made appointments as well. Much more accessible than Sanford and no one tries to pass you off on a physician extender. You get the real deal. Very thorough in her exam.

I have been going to the Fargo Center for Dermatology since early March. Although my skin problem is proving tricky, Dr. Ness and team continue to try to find different treatments to attack the issue. I find them to be very caring, professional, and personable, without long waits in the lobby.

Dealing with severe acne as a teenager, she was empathetic while professional. When addressing medication, she was thorough in discussing previous treatment and its effectiveness and devising a plan moving forward.
