Dermatology is an exciting field of medicine because we are able to treat the areas that patients can see. It is so fulfilling to see the progress that is made and to experience a patient's satisfaction with their results.

Had Moh's Surgery on my scalp yesterday with Dr. Messlim (name spelling a guess) and was extremely pleased with her work and explanations of options on closing the wound. Started my follow up work today, so my hope is that the recovery is as explained.

The circumstances which caused me to need the services provided by Dr. Mesfin caused me to be very concerned about what would happen, throughout the process. Dr. Mesfin and the staff supporting her through my procedures, mostly Rashida, but others as well have been great. Dr. Mesfin has been available whenever I had questions about the progress of my recovery, or swelling occurred, including on weekends. Made efforts to get me in the office as soon as possible, working with my schedule. Her bedside manner is also comforting, yet professional. I would highly recommend her. I’m also grateful that I ended up getting her to handle my procedures. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor than Dr. Mesfin.

Dr. Mesfin is caring and responsive. I highly recommend her! I will go to her with any dermatology need. Dr. Mesfin performed Moh’s surgery on my scalp and made me feel comfortable and informed throughout the procedure. When I called the office after hours, Dr. Mesfin called me herself and kindly responded to questions. Dr. Mesfin’s office staff and nurses answered all of my questions before the procedure.
