Our daughter began seeing Dr. Geronemus at 6 months old for the port wine stain she had on her cheek. Over the course of over a dozen treatments, the blemish is now almost completely removed and wholly invisible. Really fantastic outcome, which we are tremendously grateful for.

Had a Fraxel Procedure to help rejuvenate the skin on my face and neck. The results are amazing and truly noticeable. I felt safe in very experienced hands and the procedure was performed by Dr. Geronemus himself

Dr. Geronemus performed Mohs Surgery on one location on my head. Everything went smoothly and result was good. I had a very good experience.

dr Geronemus has done a great job on my skin and my daughter's with some of his lasers and injections. He is kind and attentive. The office is state of the art and very efficient.

I visited to Dr. Geronemus various times and my conclusion is that he is not only expensive but it seems his heart is no longer interested in his practice. Will not be going to him again.

I had the most wonderful experience this week with Dr. Geronemus and his staff. This was the first time I had MOHS surgery and Dr. Geronemus was kind, gentle, reassuring and with his expertise took care of my problem immediately. I have every confidence in his work. The staff was considerate, courteous and made me feel comfortable. They were helpful with follow-up and called to check on me the next day. I was treated with respect and kindness and know without a doubt I had excellent care.
