Dr. Van Acker did remove 3 growths on my body during the exam. Your office then closed, due to the coronavirus crisis. I have not heard back as to whether any of these growths were cancerous and require further treatment.

My first visit to Forefront Dermatology with Dr. Van Acker was very positive. The gentleman that checked me in was very courteous and answered questions I had about payment and check in procedures. I had a yearly body skin condition check, and Dr. Van Acker explained every step she took during the examination as well as future treatment recommendations. Dr. Van Acker throws in enough personal chit chat to make the experience more pleasant. Dr. Van Acker was recommended to me by a church friend, and I would, in turn, recommend her to family and friends.
