Office is nice and big with a courteous staff at front desk. Dr. Rickett was quick to assess and recommend the appropriate resolution needed. BTW, for parking: As you drive down 2nd Street toward the River, the building is directly on the corner on the right hand side. Be prepared to turn into the alley prior to the light and the parking lot is on the left once in alley.

Everyone was professional and easy to talk with. Dr. Rickett was thorough, patient and took time to ask me questions. he gave me the advice I needed and I will go to my follow up appointment. It was my first visit and I was really pleased. Thank you!

I was impressed with this office and staff from the moment I entered. I selected this practice based on the proximity to my work. I was warmly greeted when I entered and had a minimal amount of paperwork to fill out as a new patient. The office staff was helpful and efficient. I waited almost no time to be called back to the exam room and the doctor appeared a few minutes later. Dr. Rickett took the time to explain everything thoroughly and nothing felt rushed. His friendly persona instantly puts a person at ease. I will definitely be back the next time I need to visit a dermatologist.
