Thank you so much for letting me stay in the room while you did the surgery on Cindy's head. She has had me in the room, and holding my hand if possible for all her procedures if I wouldn't be in the way. She at least knew I was there. You and your staff were "Excellent". Thank You, Mrs. Jean Boettcher

Dr. Asarch and the staff at Forefront Dermatology are the best. Everyone is welcoming, helpful and concerned about your health and recovery. I am so glad my search for a MOHS surgeon led me to this practice! I could not be more satisfied with the care I received.

The mailed directions to your office had a very useful comment. I was so appreciative that you added "we share a driveway with Metro Health". I approached your office on a dark rainy early morning and found the entrance on the first pass thanks to that sign. Good idea!

This is the first derma/MD that did not complain about my horrible skin. Answered my questions and had me arrive early. I have had at least six Dermatologists in the Lansing area. I was impressed with the Dr. And nurse assistant Colleen.

Very informative and patient with my senior father. Took great care with him, he had Mohs surgery. Would highly recommend Dr. Asarch. His staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Wish he worked at the Grand Haven location too!
