From the first time I met Dr. Shock man I was out at ease. He is a very kind person and takes time to listen. He has my total trust. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a good Doctor.

What a great experience! Dr. Shockman is professional yet friendly and really put me at ease. Although I had to have some spots removed, it was painless and the best possible experience. Great job from the greeting to the end!

My only recommendation is that my particular insurance coverage was not listed in the pull-down menu when it was presented in the patient portal online registration process. I selected a similar title, but it was not what I actually had. More insurance options should be available in the patient portal. thank you.

Will absolutely give Solomon Shockman 10+ stars - he well deserves it. Not a fan of male dermatologists, but he certainly changed my frame of mind. He explained everything he was doing, while he was doing it (and why).\nHe was polite, easy to understand, knew his 'stuff' and had a great sense of humor, which is a must for me (helps with the anxiety level).\nAlso, his nurse and nurse in training were also very attentive, explained everything, and very professional. As with Dr. Shockman, they also had a great sense of humor, even though they tried to & suppress & thwart it!!!

Dr. Shockman and his nurse were top notch! He performed two cryo surgery removals and a painless biopsy. I have had basal carcinoma 3x in the past, this was my first time at Forefront and I highly recommend them!
