What People Say About Dr. Thomas Vanmeter, MD

Dr Van Meter has been the ultimate dedicated, talented and kind professional doctor that I have been seeing annually for over 15 years. He has removed my basal cell cancer, precancer cells and skin tags and a large mole on my daughter's back with 100% success. I am completely satisfied and will continue my annual exams with Dr. Van Meter. He also is a surfer like me so we can relate on more than one level.
