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.

You provided deliberate, conscientious, and professional medical care. I was pleased that your office contacted me the day after my Mohs surgery to check on my status and answer any questions I may have had. I would definitely recommend you without hesitation.

I have had two procedures performed by Dr. Mesfin recently at Forefront Dermatology: The first was to remove a Melanoma from behind my ear and.the second was Moh's surgery for a Basal Cell spot on my forehead. Both procedures were painless and trauma free. On both occasions Dr. Mesfin was very professional and forthcoming with information about my procedure, the results, the prognosis, what to expect during the healing period. She was warm and paid full attention to my questions and concerns, never rushing our conversations. The surgical assistants (Kaitlyn (sp) and Rashana) were both very personable and professional as well. On both occasions I also received a followup call the next morning from the office inquiring about my recovery. I was very satisfied with my experience. Thank you. Mary Henning
