What Our Patients Say

Benjamin Lockshin, MD
5 Stars  I still use DermAssociates as my Dermatology provider even after having left Maryland. I have been a patient of "Dr. Ben" for many years; he is a VERY knowledgable and caring physician. He always has insights on the interplay of non-dermatological issues dermatological conditions and he is interested in you, not just your skin. It's always a pleasure to see or speak with him, as well as his excellent support staff. My most recent "visit" was through the TeleDerm interface, and that went well, except for missing having him walk into the exam room and being genuinely happy to see him. –
