What Our Patients Say*

“This dermatologist came highly recommended by a dear friend of mine who told me that if I want the best, I should entrust myself to his care. … I had a benign cyst removed from my forehead, and the experience couldn’t have been more pleasant, professional or smooth. As a side note, I arrived early to both my appointments, the preliminary and the procedure, and was taken in to the exam room early each time. I had different staff members attending me on both days and all, including the receptionists, were most accommodating and upbeat.” – Cindy Q.

“Great experience. The staff was extremely nice, and the doctor was professional and spot-on with his treatment. Dr. Bittenbender also treated my son for warts with great success. I appreciated that he was willing to remove the warts the same day as the appointment, and not just give us some cream to apply for 10 months like an other dermatologist did.” – Jackie G.
