I feel lucky I can develop a rapport with patients over the years. I see them once or twice a year and get to know them over time, which helps me provide better care if problems arise.

I came to this office for the fraxel laser on my acne scars on my face. The staff was amazing. The procedure was quick and mostly painless. The doctor explained everything to me in a detailed manner . Highly recommend if you're looking for a trustworthy and efficient dermatologist
