What Our Patients Say*

“I’ve been going to Dr. Cothern to treat teenage acne scars for the past three years. The treatments he has suggested and performed have changed my life and my confidence! Dr. Cothern is intuitive and very kind. He also makes visits (and even procedures!) fun, because he is so energetic and entertaining – but also relaxed. I would suggest his expertise to anyone!” – Brad
