I was checked in up front in a speedy manner and all my information was on hand and prepared for my visit. Amy and Beatrice were very professional, kind and caring during my visit. the appointment went very well and I am currently healing well and the affected area is looking and feeling better everyday.

Receptionist and nurses were welcoming, friendly, and informative. Dr was “friendly enough” but could have been warmer with my nervous teen. No explanations of options or reassurances given during our visit; was a bit disappointed.

I was able to get an appointment very quickly, and the appointment itself was very quick (less than 30 minutes). After a quick glance at my acne, I was prescribed two medications: a blood pressure medication and a topical gel that was very expensive, and not covered by my insurance. I did find it a bit odd my blood pressure was checked after I was prescribed the medication. (I typically have perfect-to-low blood pressure, so I hope this doesn't reduce it too much.) I'm a dermatologist novice, so I'm trusting the professional here. I am also waiting to hear back on an alternative to the gel as I cannot afford to pay $266. Overall, I am happy with the service I received.

I've never been to a dermatologist before and has to google around to find a office. I saw that Forefront had some great reviews, so here we go. They were able to get me in the same day, I think there were some luck involved due to a earlier cancelation. Good for me, I had some issues that required some immediate attention. Amy was very professional and direct. She gave me some good advice and prescribed me with some medicines and I was on my way. Office visit time was short and sweet. Although my treatment in not completely over, I have had great results. Amy nailed it!! Great job!
