Patient Testimonials

Katie T.

I definitely recommend Dermatology Associates! There was no long wait like at most places. The waiting room and exam room were clean and comfortable, and the staff was super nice. I had to call multiple times after having trouble with the patient portal, and each time I called, they were nice and helpful. Katie made me feel so comfortable. She didn’t try to rush through my appointment to get to the next patient like in some places. She answered all my questions and made me feel so at ease, even with my terrible anxiety. Seriously can’t say enough good things about this place!
