Dr Van Acker was kind enough to treat a couple of pre-malignant lesions even though I was scheduled for a quick follow up. It saved me and extra trip!

Dr. Van Acker is friendly and creates a comfortable office environment. She is very relatable and listens to you. She asked me what my biggest concerns were with my skin rather than looking at me and assuming my problems, which I really appreciated. I would definitely recommend her if you have any dermatology needs!

I love that Dr. Vanacker has a therapy dog in the office. I felt right at home right away. My only concern was that she seemed to spend considerably less time in my annual exam than my previous dermatologist did. I have a history of skin cancer, and left feeling like the exam could have been more thorough.
