“My family doctor recommended this Dr . I am so happy he did. The office is clean and nice (although results are more important to me). Dr Berthelot listens and thoroughly explains what needs done and why. She recommended a treatment I was apprehensive about at first but after she explained the how and why of the treatment I decided to follow her recommendation. It worked exactly like she said it would. . I am glad I went there.” – Ken jeffcoat
“Great help! I got there a little earlier than my appointment (as you should with any visit to any doctors office.) Dr. Berthelot got me in, listened to all of my questions and answered them to the best she could. It’s a far drive for me since I’m not near the area but, best decision I’ve made to go here! Quick in and out with results! I would definitely recommend her if you’re looking for a dermatologist!” – Richard Nguyen

“On the first visit I had to fill out pages of paper forms. These should have been available online for me to fill out in advance at my home computer. However, everything else went very smoothly. Easy access with ample parking near the front door. I spent less than 5 minutes in the waiting room, and was treated by competent and friendly staff. My problems were pretty straightforward: Skin growths caused by working in blazing sunshine in my youth (I’m blond, blue eyes, light-complexioned).” – Dan & Arlene Fox
“My experience was great. The entire staff was welcoming and very helpful. Dr. Thomas was great she explained my situation to me in detail she very thorough. I got diagnosed and treatment I needed. The appointment took less than in hour…Very satisfied with my visit!!” – Theo Williams
