    Dr Shimomaye has been treating me for several years. She is very skilled at what she does. She made me feel comfortable from the very first visit. I have had multiple MOHS surgeries and I wouldn't want any doctor other than Dr Shimomaye to do the surgeries. She is kind, caring, understanding, and never fails to put a smile on my face. Thank you Dr Shimomaye for always going above and beyond the line of duty. Thank you for taking such good care of me and my family.
