June 16, 2014

first time meeting Dr. Pettit and I have every confidence in her

June 08, 2014

I came to this office because of poor impressions/assistance at a previous Dermatologist and office. I will give good recommendations for this office.

June 07, 2014

I don't feel like I was really listened to in regards to why I came in. I felt like I was given a blanket answer, but not a real answer.

June 04, 2014


June 03, 2014

Dr. Petitt is very nice and took time to answer all my questions.

June 02, 2014

Very competent, caring and professional. Explained everything very well. Dr. Petit is a real asset to the clinic.

June 02, 2014

Dr. Petit was very thorough and has a good bedside manner.

May 28, 2014

I didn't get to ask all my questions that I wanted to, I felt a little rushed. I hope next time is better.

May 20, 2014

another great experience

May 18, 2014

I have already recommended Dr. Petit. She was great!

May 16, 2014


May 11, 2014

Dr. Pettit is the nicest female dermatologist I've been to.

May 10, 2014

Very knowlegeable. Answered our questions, very nice.

May 09, 2014

Great care! I really appreciate Dr. Pettit's care and her team was great!

April 28, 2014

I would've liked a paper about how to care for the warts between treatments. Bandaids or no band-aids, are they supposed to be painful for awhile after? A little more information would've been nice to have.

April 25, 2014

Dr. Pettit is very caring and professional.

April 25, 2014

my medication was more expensive than I had anticipated. Knowing that, I might have discussed an alternative. However what she prescribed me is convenient enough that I do like the choice we made.

April 21, 2014

I did have a question about a possible side effect of the medication I am taking. When I first experienced the side effect, I did some research online to see if it was common and found a number of forums and websites dedicated to discussing this particular side effect. Knowing that I can't always trust the internet I brought it up with the dr, but she was unfamiliar with the side effect. To her credit she did say that she would look into it.

April 12, 2014

The dr was easy to talk to and to understand

April 04, 2014

Dr. Pettit is very professional and knowledgeable. She was very thorough and I felt I understood clearly the options she presented for treatment. She made me feel very comfortable and at ease.

March 31, 2014

going into this appointment I had 2 friends waiting to her what I thought because they are also looking for a dermatologist. I will definitely be telling them about Dr. Pettit! It was also nice having a female physician for once!!

March 31, 2014

Would like to know the scientific terms of what I was being treated for. Just saying it, is not enough. I need to write it down.

March 17, 2014

Dr Pettit is the best!

March 16, 2014

Dr. Pettit was amazing! She was very kind and I felt that she made sure that I understood everything that was crucial for me to know; I really appreciated that.

February 23, 2014

Very happy with care provided by Dr. Pettit and staff.

February 18, 2014

I really appreciated how much she listened to me and my concerns. I requested an aggressive treatment and before making her decision, she sought to get a fully history of prior treatments and spoke with me about side effects of my requested treatment, wanting me to be fully aware of any dangers associated with the treatment. Also, I appreciate her desired follow up with me throughout my treatment process. I was very pleased with her!

January 30, 2014

I always feel like Dr Pettit spends a good amount of time with me, doesn't feel like she is in a hurry at all.

January 24, 2014

I think this is my last visit with Dr. Pettit. I have had other dermatolgists that actually look and even touch it or put magnifying glasses on. I was rushed out and just blown off. Use some cream and you will be good. I think had I been there for botox I would have been given more attention.

January 21, 2014

I went in for a removal of a wart and she checked all my moles and removed 2 suspicious ones. She is very through!

January 18, 2014

I am a returning patient to Dr. Petit and wish someone had informed me that she had returned to practice.

January 17, 2014

really liked DR Kimberly Pettit

January 17, 2014

Dr. Pettit is very friendly, outgoing and exuberant. I was originally referred to Dr. Pettit for dermatologic assessment and care by my wife for my first appointment 18 months ago and I chose to schedule this follow-up appointment based on my confidence in Dr. Pettit's previous care .

January 15, 2014

I just love Dr Pettit. she is awesome!

January 12, 2014

Dr, Pettit used words in describing my problem that I didn't understand or could repeat to others. Pehaps writing it down on the check out sheet would have been helpful.

January 11, 2014

This is my second time seeing Dr. Pettit (the first was for something unrelated), and both times I have really appreciated her. She is friendly and respectful, always makes sure you feel comfortable and all questions are answered. That is why I was willing to wait a month to get in to see her rather than another doctor.

January 10, 2014

Dr. Pettit is exceptional!

January 06, 2014

I would recommend Dr. Pettit and her staff to everyone I know. They are awesome!!!!

December 21, 2013

I really enjoyed meeting Dr Pettit. She took great care of my son and helped us understand what the bump on his back was.

December 04, 2013

My experience was very positive.

November 20, 2013

She was so nice and so friendly and so personable and explained my daughter's skin condition in detail!! I was very impressed and she was worth the wait!! Plus your staff was so nice to offer my daughter some cookies/crackers while we were waiting!!! Thank you so much for being nice. I can't tell you how great that is!

November 20, 2013

I felt rushed during the appointment and guilty none of the treatments had worked as expected. The doctor seemed a bit frustrated

November 04, 2013

She was great. I have already referred 3 people to her. She is the warmest doctor I have seen in years. Great bedside manner.

October 29, 2013

I was extremely pleased with my entire interaction from front door, to the receptionist, the M.A. and the physician provider.

October 14, 2013

I've been seeing Dr. Pettit about some basil skin cancer and she has calmed my fears and made suggestions for treatment that I feel safe following.

October 14, 2013

I would recommend Dr. Petite to anyone.

September 30, 2013

I had no room to ask questions and I left feeling like my problem did not get addressed. The pharmacist gave me more information about my prescription than the doctor did.

September 30, 2013

Dr. Pettit was so very nice! I just absolutely loved her! And she spent a lot of time with me and cared about why I was there. What a great doctor you have in her! Great job!

September 09, 2013


September 09, 2013

Love the fact she spoke directly to the patient

September 09, 2013

Dr. Petit is very nice and professional,

September 03, 2013

I loved Dr. Pettit! she was caring, explained things well. she also did such a good job with the small procedure done. I have recommended her to a number of people already. Very impressed with her and her assistant.

September 03, 2013

she is great!

September 03, 2013

I have full confidence in Dr. Pettit as my care provider. I've seen a lot of providers over time and she is consistently stellar in all aspects of care. She remembers me personally as well, which gives her even higher marks.

August 20, 2013

Still not sure what is causing the rash.

August 20, 2013

Love Dr Pettit! Very nice lady!

August 19, 2013

didn't seem as thorough as other dermatologists I have seen in the past. she was in and put quickly... could she have missed something? makes me nervous...

August 13, 2013

Dr. Pettit and her nurse Angela were amazing. Both extended very gracious and courteous care. The experience was outstanding.

August 05, 2013

Dr. Pettit is a real asset to your group. She has a real connection to us her patients and made us feel we were there for a real purpose but there was nothing to worry about.

August 03, 2013

very good in every way.

July 15, 2013

I have already recommended her to several friends.

July 10, 2013

Love Dr. Pettit.

July 09, 2013

Very professional

July 02, 2013

The exam was cursory at best. The Dr. didn`t seem to want to spend any time looking at my skin even though I had told her that I used to burn my skin each year when I was growing up. She looked at the few things that were bothering me, and not a thing else. I used to work for Derms for years, so I know a good exam when I see one.

July 01, 2013

Dr. Petit is very nice and very friendly!

July 01, 2013

I really liked my provider. It was my first time seeing her, I did feel like she was super rushed when she was in the room with me.. I felt like I needed to hurry up and not ask anymore questions.

June 10, 2013

My stitches ripped out the second day (not Dr.'s fault) and I had re-stitched by another clinic. PA there told me that I shouldn't get area wet for 48 hours, and then not submerge (like swimming) until stitches out. Also gave antibiotic because of possible infection due to re-opening of wound. My recollection is that Dr. Pettit did not inform me about water restrictions, especially as I swim daily.

June 03, 2013

I was prescribed a medication that might affect my liver so I went to the lab to have a test done. I had elevated levels. I was amazed that the doctor called me back so soon and recommended that I NOT take the medication she had prescribed. I was able to schedule a follow-up with an internal medicine doctor in 2 days which was also amazing. When there is a problem you don't want to wait 2 weeks!

June 03, 2013


May 29, 2013

Too many people in exam room. Dr., Dr. in training (male), assistant, assistant in training made me feel overwhelmed and that I was keeping all of those people from seeing other patients. Not comfortable wearing gown in front of all those people. Wish I was told of all those people in training when I checked in, and not after I was in exam room.

May 28, 2013

The doctor seemed rushed. I spent more time getting information from the medical assistant than the doctor. I liked the doctor but I felt I didn't get a chance to thoroughly go over all of my concerns.

May 27, 2013

Dr. Pettit's ratings are above "Very Good" She is excellent and one of my favorite care providers.

May 21, 2013

Dr. Pettit was absolutely wonderful.

May 20, 2013

I am very pleased with Dr. Pettit

May 20, 2013

good experience

May 20, 2013

I felt like she was a great doctor! She listened to my concerns and talked to me so I could understand what she was saying. She has a great personality and I felt very comfortable in her care!!

May 20, 2013

Love her

May 20, 2013

We loved Dr. Pettit. So nice and knowledgeable.

May 14, 2013

If she could just be my docotr for everything, I would do that. Really. She was absolutely wonderful. She was so amazing and thoughtful and cared about me. Dr. Pettit is fantastic. I felt so comfortable around her and even though they said she was running behind (which she wasn't, because she got me back right away) she still took all the time I needed her to to give me a full and thorough check and I REALLY appreciated that.

May 07, 2013

She seemed to be in a hurry and wanted to be done, but she was very nice.

May 06, 2013

I loved Dr Pettit's bed side manner. Very kind and helpful

May 06, 2013

The care provider (Dr Petit) nor the medical assistant did not wash their hands when entering. This is a recurring issue at the U of U Hospitals and clinics. Fix it TODAY!

April 30, 2013

Dr. Pettit was very friendly and listened to me. This was my first visit with her and I know that I made the right choice. She was excellent.

April 29, 2013

Dr. Pettit is the friendliest doctor I have ever met. She was very thorough, careful, and competent.

April 29, 2013

Dr. Pettit is a great provider and I appreciate her positive attitude, friendliness and genuine concern. She is an asset to the U.

April 18, 2013

Very knowegable and courteous

April 16, 2013

Best bedside manner I've ever seen.

February 25, 2013


February 18, 2013

I really like Dr. Petitt. She knows me and remembers my last visit even though I only see her about every 6 months. I feel confident in her care.

February 05, 2013

Kimberly was utmost professional, super personable, inclusive, listened carefully and fully. I never felt like a number--always felt valued and important to her. She gathered full/complete notes and exam observations.

February 05, 2013

I have been recommending her to my family members who have said their dermatologist did not even look at their body when they went in for their skin checks. Dr. Pettit was very thorough with looking at the entire body including taking measurements and photos of any concerning areas.

January 29, 2013

A long drive for the appt. Since she used to be in Park City and acne specialty, I felt it was worth it for my daughter and i at least once.

January 28, 2013

Dr. Pettit is great! She how's deep concern for whatever concern you have and really takes the time to inform you of what it could be and any process that may happen. I would recommend her to anyone!

January 28, 2013


January 02, 2013

Dr. Pettit was wonderful. It was the first time I saw her and I will be seeing her for my skin problems. She was very attentive and sensitive to my concerns/questions. She was also quick (i had to have a minor procedure done, and she did it in less than 15 minutes)

December 25, 2012

She was very knowledgable and I felt confident in her care.

December 10, 2012

I loved Dr. Petit, hate to see her leave :(

December 07, 2012

I don't know if there is a better combination of friendliness, happiness and thoroughness among all physicians.

November 26, 2012

This was my first visit to Dr. Pettit. She made a good first impression and I liked her right away. I will continue with her as my doctor and will recommend her.

November 26, 2012

Dr. Pettit was engaging, friendly, thorough and provided a comprehensive examination in addition to directly addressing my questions and concerns.

November 23, 2012

Dr. Pettit was very kind and knowledgable.

November 15, 2012

I was unavoidably late to my appointment so I called to let them know. When I got there, they were very nice and Dr. Petite agreed to see me. None of the staff made me feel less welcome because of my tardiness, but treated me with kindness and respect. Dr. Petite did not rush through the appointment, but even did some biopsies. Then she followed up with a phone call with the results of the biopsies in a timely manner. She is great!

November 05, 2012

Dr Pettit is leaving Redstone. Very sad. What a wonderful person and great doctor.

November 05, 2012

Doctor Pettit was fantastic! I have never had an MD as simultaneously concerned about my well being and comfort.

October 23, 2012

It was a great experience the assistant and Doc were both very caring and helpful

October 08, 2012

I love Dr. Pettit. She is genuinely concerned and cares about me as a person, not a number or a diagnosis.

October 01, 2012

Good experience

September 24, 2012

Felt very comfortable

September 24, 2012

I tell everyone to go to Dr. Kim Petit - there is no one better!!! The staff is incredible as well

September 24, 2012

When explaining the different skin issues, I honestly had no idea what she was saying I had. I did understand what needed to be treated or not, and I understood what areas she could fix....but as far as the actual issue, I haven't a clue.

September 10, 2012

Love Dr. Pettit, she is awesome!

September 10, 2012

Dr. Petit was very friendly, and patient.

September 05, 2012

Dr. Pettit did such a great job, I loved her!!!!

September 04, 2012

Dr. Pettit is super nice. It was my first time seeing her and I felt very comfortable with her.

August 27, 2012

Super friendly; great energy. All of my questions were answered and then some. I love a doctor who spouts information!!!

August 21, 2012

Doctor was very good!

June 29, 2012

Wonderful doctor - makes going to the doctor something to look forward to.

June 25, 2012

She was very courtious and knowligable

June 25, 2012

The visit was very positive. We set up My Chart and that is so convenient. I really like that service.

June 19, 2012

All of the information Dr. Pettit gave me, was very informative and easy to understand.

June 18, 2012

Very helpful, comforting, & professional

June 15, 2012

Doctor was excellent. Correct diagnosis, treated the skin growth with laser and reasured me that my face will continue to be beautiful for years to come.

June 04, 2012

The PA and Dr. Pettit were both very nice, professional and attentive.

June 04, 2012

I truly appreciate Dr. Petit's concern for and awareness of the cost of different treatments. I wish more health care providers were this aware.

May 12, 2012

Dr. Pettitt and her assistant were both knowledgeable and friendly. They made me feel very comfortable. I left the office feeling like I had found a great doctor and will return to her again.

May 09, 2012

My situation did not fit into her preconceived notions, so the doctor provided no help whatever--other than a printout from a medical website that told me i might have menopause or cancer.

April 18, 2012

Dr. Pettit is awesome!! She is so kind, concerned and really sees me as a person, not just a diagnosis. She is very good about calling with messages and returning messages. I appreciate her kindness and her medical expertise.

March 24, 2012

Dr. Pettit was very nice, very friendly, explaining answers to any questions I had.

March 22, 2012

Keep up the good work

March 07, 2012

Dr. Pettit is my definition of a wonderful doctor! She took the time to listen to my concerns and never acted rushed or inconvenienced by my visit. I could tell she genuinely cared and wanted to help me. She offered expert advice on medications and treatment programs and even offered alternatives to expensive medications. Her warmth and professionalism make her a great health professional!

February 16, 2012

I have already recommended my wife.

February 16, 2012

I did not see a provider during this particular visit, I just saw the nurse

February 08, 2012

Dr. Pettit was so friendly and caring. She listened to my concerns and gave great answers and advice. She seemed to really care about me and wanted to help. She was great!

February 07, 2012

Dr. Kim Pettit was very nice and she put me at ease.

February 06, 2012

my experience was incredibly frustrating. she could only prescribe drugs to treat the problem, but could not give me any explanation for my symptoms. obviously, she is well studied and tell me the scientific terminology for what i "might" have, but she was inexperienced with real-life scenarios, could not tell me anything about why i have the symptoms i have. she could, prescribe drugs to alleviate the symptoms, that is all. this is incredibly frustrating. i do not want to use drugs of any sort. i do not want to put them on my skin or ingest them. i want an experienced expert to tell me why i have what i have and the best way to prevent this from happening. she also had a slight bit of ego and attitude, which is to be expected from someone just finishing medical school. but this put me off and did not at all help me in having a positive experience. i took time to go see an expert, spent my $ to consult with an expert, and i left with nothing but some prescriptions and a suggestion to come back in a month. ridiculous! seriously frustrating!

February 02, 2012

Doctor Pettit was open and forthright making it very comfortable and easy to converse with her.

February 01, 2012

She was great! She was so friendly and listened to me about my concerns regarding my health issue. She seemed really concerned and caring. I would highly recommend her!

January 18, 2012

Very pleased with the provider

January 05, 2012

She was amazingly cheerful.
