April 18, 2015

Overall, a very good experience.

April 06, 2015

Dr. Summers is fantastic. She stopped on her way out the door to check again that I understood how to use my meds properly after my peel. I've referred several other people to her recently!

March 22, 2015

I was the last appointment of the day. Dr. Summer spent much more time with me than I expected. She took time to fit in a procedure I thought I would need to return for on a different day, which was great for my busy schedule. She also stayed late to make sure this was completed to my satisfaction. I was thrilled to see she had a sense of humor. It is humbling to know somebody is looking for imperfections through a lighted magnifying glass. She and the assistant made me comfortable with conversation and appropriate humor. I won't return to a physician that does not have a sense of humor. I am sure I will be back. She was also up front regarding cost and expense. While this may be uncomfortable, it is necessary. Thanks for a great experience.
