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.

Dr. Mesfin was very careful to explain every step and to make sure I was comfortable as she went along. I thought she did an extremely good job.

I forgot to ask if it was OK to use the CPAP machine for sleep apnea after the surgery.

I was able to have an appointment with Dr. Mesfin within a week after my diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma. The doctor and staff where 100% ready for me. Their explanations of my diagnosis and the operation were clear and concise. The procedure was painless and all was over in 1.5 hours !

Since my computer will not let me "set up" the Patient Portal, I may have to contact the office if I have questions about the healing process. Everyone in the office and during the procedure was kind and helpful and forthcoming. I was made to feel comfortable and informed.
