What Our Patients Say

Kathleen Ellison, MD
5 Stars  Return visit with new issue which was diagnosed and addressed quickly. Dr. Ellison also provided various samples to find cleansers and lotions to help alleviate a problem and Conor's work with my prescription service was excellent. As always they both took the time to listen and ask questions followed by solutions/suggestions. They create an atmosphere where you know you will receive excellent care. –

5 Stars  I am not an easy person to please, but I can't say enough about how great Dr. Ellison and the office staff were. After years of bouncing around between dermatologists and not finding one with whom I was comfortable, my experience with the doctor and her office was so positive that I will be returning here for my needs in the future. Everyone in the office was professional, efficient, and pleasant, and I have every confidence in their examination and treatment. –
