Over the years I have seen several physicians at Dermatology Consultants. All have been great and informative. They know the latest on my chronic condition. Front desk staff knows my name when I walk in. Dr.Cook and Dr.Anderson's assistants have been extremely helpful getting my expensive meds covered.

From the greetings of Bridgette and Marta through my visit with Dr. Anderson my experience was exceptional!It doesn't stop there, though. Nurse Sarah went the extra mile for me! I'm 60 years old and have had eczema since birth at times covering 90% of my body. Long story short, there is a cure called Dupixent. It's a specialty drug that costs about $38,000.00 a year. Needless to say because of its cost insurance companies are reluctant to authorize its use. I was approved and was on it for about a year and a half. I changed insurance companies and was off of it for six months and the eczema came back with a vengeance! Last week I tried to get back on Dupixent but was denied again by the new insurance company. Then, two days later I get a letter saying I was now approved for the Dupixent. Elated, I went to see Dr. Anderson to get back on Dupixent. That's when I found out Sarah went to bat for me! Sarah did the leg work, found out all the pertinent information that was needed by the insurance company to reverse their decision and got it done. A huge shout out goes to Sarah!! She went above and beyond for someone she didn't even know!!Sarah you are an angel, you chose the right profession and Dematology Consultants should feel blessed to have you!!! Thank you so much!!!Tom Decker

Dr. Robert Anderson was able to pick up on a subtle change on my ear that no one else was able to notice. He did biopsy which confirmed his suspicion of an early basal cell carcinoma. The lesion was expertly and painlessly removed via the Mohs Technique by Dr. Shaffer. I'm thankful that they were able to identify and remove the lesion in such a timely fashion and healed without a trace of the procedure. Great office and staff!

Dr. Anderson found my husband's basal cell carcinoma. My husband is 27 yrs old and young to have cancer. I am so glad he caught it early and handled it for us!
