Dermatology is much more than just giving patients prescriptions – it’s about educating them as to the nature of the condition and the best treatment options for their individual situation.

Down to earth and willing to listen and educate his patients, not just push the pharmaceuticals. Friendly staff, too.

First of all, the office was spotless and the reception staff inviting and friendly. The wait time was very short considering how in demand Dr. Lynott is. Most importantly, Dr. Lynott and his nurse were very attentive to my concerns offering options and solutions and my appointment was not completed until they had totally taken care of me; there was no evidence of urgency and I felt as if I could have stayed there for hours until we were both finished with what we were there for. Dr. Lynott is very professional, friendly and informative and I would highly recommend him.

I've been going to Dr. Lynott for several years and have referred other patients to him. He is professional, knowledgeable and you don't have long waits in the waiting room. He removed a skin cancer between my nose and lip and repaired it so well you can't see a scar unless you look very close. I recommend him.

It was my first experience at the Forefront Dermatology and I can highly recommend Dr.Lynott and his staff. Nurse Shanon and Dr.Lynott both made me feel at ease, and answered all my questions in detail. The procedure (mole removal) went as smooth as can be, without any discomfort.
