“Helpful staff—Dr. Wilkes is very accommodating. Explained everything well.” – Allen M.
“Dr. Wilkes was very kind and had a great bedside manner. Did a skin check for cancer and treated two spots for precancerous. Made time to talk with me and listen to my concerns. Will do follow up in three months. I just recommended him to someone else. Staff was courteous and helpful, helping me to decide which treatment would be best for my fine lines and wrinkles. Wonderful doctor.” – Anonymous
“I was very pleased with my visit to this office, and with Dr. Wilkes and Alicia in particular. Dr. Wilkes is very professional and friendly. He explains options and cares about his patients. One piece of advice I can give is if you get cold easily, do dress warmly for appointments.” – Deanna W.
