Friendly and caring

Dr. Rotter and his staff were friendly, timely and competent in their service, and their ease in conversation made an otherwise unpleasant procedure a nice experience. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Dr. Rotter is a dedicated, knowledgeable doctor who is devoted to his work! We ((my husband and I) have been very satisfied patients for over 16 years. We drive over 20 miles each way to and from his office because he is an exceptional physician- who ALWAYS spends time on his procedures and answers questions patiently.

Very efficient and successful appointment for Mohs surgery by Dr. Steven Rotter, I was seen immediately following check-in, surgery took only 10 minutes, I had the results showing clean margins within 30 minutes, my wound was expertly sutured and I was on my way to work an hour after check-in. Thank you Dr. Rotter!

Dr. Rotter and his entire staff are absolutely the best medical team I have ever seen. They are extremely efficient, caring, friendly (to the extent I would consider them "family").

One would be hard pressed to replicate the expediency and professionalism exhibited by Dr.Rotter and his staff. They addressed an immediate issue of mine in warp speed. Their friendly demeanor and clear explanations of both the surgery as well as aftercare were very reassuring.

I had a deep Mohs procedure on my face & have keloid-prone skin. The resulting scars were not pretty. Dr. Rotter is committed to getting my face back to as normal as possible. He genuinely cares and is doing everything he can to eliminate the scarring and discoloration from the surgery, no matter how long it takes! I am very appreciative.

I’ve been seeing Dr Steven Rotter for 30 years and you couldn’t find a better Dr and the entire staff. Everyone is so polite and professional, everything is explained in advance and after the procedure how much they care about you. And it’s always said to you before you leave to “call if you have any questions or concerns “. Wonderful Dr and Staff.
Forefront Dermatology
Everyone was very kind and professional. Also I noticed the person answering the phone was able to answer questions instead of putting the caller on hold. The nurse who took me back listened to me and offered suggestions and Dr. Rotter put me at ease, which I certainly appreciated very much! Thank you to everyone involved!
