Made for a very long day, but was well worth the time. I only had one scrape and then I was “pig skinned” sewed back up! DR. Mchugh and the staff were very courteous and professional. I would recommend them to anyone.

During these uncertain times of pandemic and quarantine, I can't say enough good about my recent surgery at forefront dermatology. The staff was efficient and professional and friendly. They take obvious measures to insure their patients safety. They explained everything thoroughly and then did the surgery expertly. The follow up phone call was reassuring. Many thanks.
