Dermatology is extremely rewarding as you have the opportunity to control or cure conditions that are often very distressing emotionally and serious physically.

Dr. Kasteler is the best. He actively listens and addresses all of my concerns. His office staff is very friendly and efficient. I have never been there even close to an hour. I am a patient of his Louisville office though !

The best Dermatologist I've ever experienced. Knowledgeable, kind, competent and charming. I recommend him, without hesitation, to all my family and friends. One note abou the office admin, clarify your appointment location the day before your appointment. When I showed up for my annual appointment as scheduled, the receptionist told me my appointment was at a different location! (Over the many years I’ve been his patient, I’ve never visited the other location.) Another patient came in behind me and was told the same thing. I had to reschedule my appointment resulting in a wasted morning.

I have all three common skin cancers, and each of my visits to Dr. Kasteler's office have been reassuring. I know that none of the three will go undetected and treated.
