I most enjoy cases in which the skin condition is having a strong impact on my patient's quality of life. In these cases, there is a lot of room to have a positive impact on a patient's happiness.

Dr. Landherr is very professional, compassionate and empathetic. Very knowledgeable and takes his time to explain your suspected diagnosis and explains everything that he is doing and why. I have had two biopsies done, one a basal cell carcinoma and one benign. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Landherr was very polite and seemed very knowledgeable about my concerns. I thought he was bright and cheerful and he made me comfortable. He seemed like the type of person you would want as a friend. I would feel comfortable giving his name to my family and friends.

I did not see one smile until you came into the room and greeted me...I think your staff could work on their smiling and welcoming skills..just my personal observation!

I am so impressed by Dr. Landherr and his staff. I wouldn't go to any other office. Dr. Landherr addresses my concerns promptly and I always feel better after talking with him and his staff. I never feel rushed with Dr. Landherr. I had to contact the office on a weekend and promptly returned a call back and my issue was resolved. Very pleasant, efficient and accommodating office.
