My patients are the most rewarding part of my practice. They are so grateful when you detect an early skin cancer or make their itchy, miserable rash or severe acne go away.

Though it has been less than 48 hours from my visit, the Rx may be working already. Dr. Rudolph was thorough and she and her staff were pleasant and courteous. I would visit her establishment again if need be.

I was met by a very good, efficient and proficient staff. My appointment was on time. Dr. Rudolph was professional and gave me a thorough exam and explained herself well. Several days after my appointment, Dr. Rudolph, called me at home, after her normal working hours, and shared with me the results of my biopsy. She also volunteered to call a doctor concerning a referral appointment, and Dr. Rudolph was going to make this call on her day off. Dr. Rudolph went above and beyond to make me comfortable and she went out of her way to expedite my treatment. I would highly recommend Dr. Rudolph to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
