She is not only a one woman show, she is also one of kind too. Don't be thrown off by her unconventional texting ways, her work is not a business it is a mission. Very professional and personalized service. I have no hesitation in recommending her for her specialty "Surgical Dermatology".

This is a Doctor that actually cares about her patients. She does very thorough exams and always asks about your concerns. She is also an excellent surgeon should you need anything removed. Once you visit her you will never want to see anyone other than her.
