This is my 3rd appointment with Dr. Pietras. He is very professional and personable. He did an excellent job removing precancerous lesions on my forehead. After about 1.5 weeks everything has healed, feels and looks great. His Nurse was very thorough in explaining things to me. I recommend him and Forefront dermatology to everyone I know.

Dr Pietras was very knowledgeable, giving me a full explanation of a skin condition I had. He gave me written instructions on how to treat it and made sure I understood completely the plan of care and if/when I needed to return to see him or not. Much appreciated.

Dr. Pietras does a great job. He always explains everything to me and goes over the options and what the treatment plan will be. I've referred my friends to him for their acne problems too. I get great service from Dr. Pietras and his staff, you won't be disappointed.

Dr. Pietras is awesome! Extremely knowledgeable with my very rare genetic skin disease. He takes the time to sit down and visit about my specific condition; providing me with history and facts about the disease. Has an excellent bedside manner!

Previous dermatologists I have seen have given me a sheet of printed instructions for the care of sites where skin has been excised for lab examination. None were given to me here, and as simple as the verbal instructions were, it is still helpful to be able to review the written instructions.

Once I got into the practice ( it took 4 months to get the first appointment) my experience has been wonderful. Short wait times in the waiting room and patient room. Very friendly staff, that respond to questions. Dr Pietras is wonderful, he listens to you and has been very helpful to me.
