Starting with new patients and seeing them continue to improve is the most rewarding part of dermatology. I have many teen age patients that were embarrassed by their acne and it is incredible to see how they become more confident as their acne resolves.

Victoria is always great! She answers any questions that I have before leaving the room! Her head nurse I believe her name is Kim is awesome! She makes sure that everything is done promptly so no waiting has to be done! Cora is always quick to schedule my appointments! Great job! The one that typically checks me in was not there this visit but she remembers my name and doesn’t even need me to do anything! The entire staff is fantastic!

I have been seeing Victoria for many years concerning my atopical dermatitis/eczema. She has worked tirelessly to find what works for me. She has worked with my insurance to ensure I receive the medication needed. I drive from Bedford to Seymour for my appointments with her. I would not do that for any other provider. She is compassionate and genuinely cares for me and not just a number. They get me in, out, and she always reminds me to call before my next appointment if I have a flare-up before that time. She has gave me my skin back!

The staff at Forefront Dermatology is top notch, and I couldn't ask for a better skin care provider than Tori. She is always friendly and knowledgeable on my condition.

So far, so good! Nurse was very kind and gentle applying the diagnostic markers and I'll be happy to have completed this test and meet with Victoria. Thank you for caring. See you tomorrow!

I feel that the staff rushes the appointment. Also, I should be offered a choice for my treatment - freezing or surgical removal. The freezing requires multiple appointments which requires time and additional discomfort/pain for the patient, me. I prefer surgical removal. I have never had freezing done in the past; it was always surgical removal by my former dermatologist. With surgical removal, the heal-time is ONLY once, instead of 2-3 treatments by freezing. This is my opinion on freezing.
