Feel very confident my issue will be resolved.

I came in with the concern of a very large acne breakout (which I had never got before) and asked what could be done to clear/prevent it from coming back. Katie, the physicians assistant, was very kind and observed the skin on my face, chest, and back to see what kind of acne this was. I told her I always had clear skin for the most part all my life, until recently, and she said that sometimes people don't get acne bad until their 20's (I am 22), hence why I never had bad acne at all throughout high school. She prescribed me an oral pill and a topical ointment to apply to my face every night before bed. She warned that my skin may peel and get very dry from the combination of the pill and the ointment, which I did notice. However, she recommended Cetaphil moisturizer to help with the flaking, which it definitely did, and to use an oil absorbing cleanser (also from Cetaphil). It has now been a week since my appointment with Katie and my skin is already immensely improving! More than half of my breakouts are gone, and my skin looks clear overall with only a few red spots. HIGHLY recommend Katie and the team here and definitely recommend Cetaphil products for very sensitive skin that won't break you out or irritate the skin.

Katie Mehall,PA-C was friendly, but professional. The exam was thorough and all questions were answered. She spent time listening to me and that is exactly what I am looking for in a health care provider. I will recommend her to my family and friends.

Katie is great. I wish she would work at all my doctor offices. She remembered issues we talked about 2 years ago. Highly recommended.

My only complaint is that my appt. was at 10:20 and it was 11:05 before I was called back to see the doctor. I realize that there are emergencies. I have an appt. in 6 months and hopefully the same thing will not happen.

Everything about the office visit was fine but somebody "dropped the ball" on transmitting my scripts to the Rite Aid Pharmacy in Nanty-Glo. The PA said she was sending in two scripts to the pharmacy, one for a steroid cream and one for some type of mouthwash. I went to the pharmacy in the PM to get the 2 scripts and the pharmacy said nothing was sent to them from Forefront Dermatology. I placed a call to the office but it was closed by that time so I left a message. The next morning I called Rite Aid and they informed me that they had only one of the scripts ready and that was all they received from Forefront. I placed another call this AM and left a voice mail and I'm waiting to hear from Forefront. It was so much nicer when you could call the office and talk to a human being to explain your problem and not have to depend on voice-mails.
