What Our Patients Say

5 Stars  I had Fraxel Laser treatment. While the treatment itself was painful, Amanda was wonderful. She was caring and involved in making sure I was okay. My follow up visit with Dr. Cothern was reassuring and I do feel like I made the best choice for my treatment experience. –

5 Stars  I was a bit intimidated by Dr Cothern the first time I visited his clinic. He was methodical and straight to the point. However, as I visited his clinic a few times more I've been able to appreciate the things that he and his clinic do that are better than other providers. Dr Cothern has probably been a dermatologist longer than I have been alive. He knows his stuff. His staff takes very thorough patient histories and always double check to make sure I don't have any linger questions or concerns. Dr Cothern was always very accommodating when I sprang random questions or requests on him that was unrelated to my chief complaint for the visit. I had a bad eczema flare up and Dr Cothern gave me some samples to make sure I got immediate relief and called in a prescription that worked wonders and it didn't cost me anything. I have had some big ugly keloids for fifteen some years and I thought I just had to live with them. Dr Cothern saw one of the keloids when he was examining a growth I had made the appointment for, and said he could make them less obvious. I agreed and he got it done during the same appointment, no extra charges and barely took any extra time. The office staff is phenomenal. They worked with my schedule and was always able to get me in within a few days. When I asked for some of my biopsy records, unlike a lot of other clinics, they gave me the paperwork right away, no questions asked and no hoops to jump through. I never had to wait more than a few minutes for my appointments. –
