Carrollton |
Terrific in every way. He listens and shows that he cares and he can address your concerns quickly and with compassion
in Virginia Beach, VA |
I have a long history of dermatological issues, mostly from the sun, and have gone to many dermatologists over my lifetime. But none were as thorough as Dr. Rob Baer! I live in Virginia Beach but now drive to Suffolk to see Dr. Baer. Whatever your issue or concern he will identify exactly what or if you have a problem, and will effectively treat it immediately with a empathetic and friendly demeanor. Some skin issues can be potentially fatal and I don't want a trial and error dermatologist.
