Dr. Ross has been my dermatologist since the early 1990's. He is a skilled, fast and caring professional. Under his care I have avoided skin cancer numerous times, and have had many unsightly, irritating and dangerous growths removed quickly, painlessly, and with minimal scaring. I can't recommend him enough. If you are looking for a dermatologist, you would be lucky to become his patient, as I am. He is also the author of a wonderful medical thriller titled "Wrinkle," set in the fictional

I couldn't get an appointment anywhere for a spot I had that was bleeding. Dr. Ross's receptionist got me in the same day and I was pleasantly surprised with the entire visit. Even though I was really only in for the bleeding spot, Dr. Ross made a point of examining the rest of me too after I told him I had never had a skin check before. He took off the spot I came for and another on my back I didn't even know about yet. Both of them were basal cell skin cancers and have now healed well.

My whole experience at Dr. Ross's office was a pleasure. I was greeted by his friendly staff with smiles. His office was clean and i was offered a cup of coffee! i didn't have to sit in the waiting room for more than 5 minutes and found the examination to be thorough and informative! i would and will recommend Dr. Ross to everyone.

Been to other Derms but found Dr Ross has the most experienced eye for finding the skin cancers and I have many. I like the fact that he is also an internist too. I have recommended him to many friends who are equally as satisfied.

I have had skin cancer for the past 20 years and have been to several dermatologists. I went to one office where I kept seeing a different doctor each time, and finally, on the recommendation of a good friend I went to see Dr. Ross. He took the time to talk to me about what we could do for each lesion, and instead of cutting them all out, the was able to treat come of them with injections of medication, others he scraped off and some he cut out. They all have healed well and I'm very happy.

Went in for an ugly spot on my arm. I was scared but biopsy said it was ok. However Dr Ross did find a spot on my shoulder that I didn't even notice. Turned out to be a malignant melanome. He diagnosed it, removed it and basically saved my life. He really knows his stuff and cares about his oatients

Dr. Ross is a very nice and friendly man. However, I had to push for him to take another look at a growth on my neck which he was sure was nothing and nothing needed to be done. After I pushed he biopsied and found out it was (very early stage) melanoma. Very frightening.
