What People Say About Dr. Richard Sontheimer, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

For skin cancer screenings and removal, I don’t think there’s anyone better. I appreciate his no nonsense approach. He is patient and thorough answering all my concerns. He’s proactive in his recommendations. The learning hospital setting is outstanding because there are always a variety of new up and coming doctors cycling through the clinic adding to the combined expertise. He’s probably the best experienced most broadly supported dermatologist in the state.
