From the time I checked into the office through the completion of my appointment with Dr. Wernli and staff, I was not only impressed but awestruck with their sincerity and willingness to assist me with my medical issues. I have been struggling with treatment options for my health condition for many years; as well as visiting numerous dermatologists to no avail. Upon meeting Dr. Wernli, I felt as if someone finally heard my story and was willing and able to help with my symptoms to provide me with some quality of life again. Dr. Wernli is professional, competent, highly skilled as well as personal. I truly felt like she was on my side. I left the office super hopeful and knowing I have a partner in Dr. Wernli and staff, in helping me alleviate the chronic symptoms I have been experiencing for years. Thank you to the team and Dr. Wernli for being present and doing what you do each day.

I went for a horrible rash on my lower legs. I was diagnosed and given ointment. It stopped the itching within minutes and the rash was gone in just a few days. It also helps with on and off itching.
