Verified patient reviews from third party web sites

Having worked in health care for 15 years, I’m picky about who provides my medical care. That being said, I cannot rate high enough the service and care I have received from Dr. Master and his staff at dermatology arts. It all starts when you endter and are greeted by the charming, happy personalities of Sandus and Vicky. They put you at ease, are very informative and set the stage for a pleasant visit. I worked in a private therapy clinic where the majority of patients had been treated by orthopedic surgeons. After having two Basil Cell carcinomas removed, I can say that Dr. Master’s suturing technique is on their par. He also explains matters thoroughly and leaves you highly informed. His medical assistants, which include the aforementioned Vicky, as well as Gabby and Guadalupe, are also excellent, professional and informative, though I must admit Vicky is my favorited, which may get me in trouble. So, all in all, 5 stars all around and I will be back on Wednesday for suture removal. Do yourself a favor and go to dermatology arts for your dermatologic needs and tell them Michael sent you. Sincerely, Michael Church

Dr. Master and his staff far surpassed my expectations! I’ve struggled with skin irritation and rash that made it impossible to sleep at night and unbearable to face the day for 2+ years. I saw multiple health providers who gave one diagnosis (& multiple prescriptions) after another—all to no avail. I’m SO THANKFUL that I finally got referred to Dr. Master whose diagnosis and skincare regime literally turned my life around! I’m now rash free and so grateful for Dermatology Arts, Dr. Master, and staff!!

Samir is the man!!! His wonderful office staff makes having psoriasis easier. Works for you to get what you need, even if your insurance company is being difficult.

I’m really glad I went to see Dr Master! He was extremely friendly from the get go, you feel more like you’re seeing a friend then a doctor. He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend anyone to make an appointment with him.

Dr. Master took the time to talk with me and discuss my issues in detail. I really appreciated his compassion for what I am going through and his interest in trying to help me. A refreshing change from so many doctors these days!

She [Dr. Carlos] was very thorough with my skin check and very friendly. Her bedside manner was great and she kept the conversation flowing as she checked me for skin cancer.

Dr. Master is wonderful. So easy to talk to and understand. He clearly loves what he does and is an expert - but also manages to make you feel educated and smart in the way he explains things. Staff and location are great. Well worth the drive.

Very polite, very informative, and I loved that he had a very educational way of teaching his intern in the room. Very professional, very positive attitude, and just a very pleasant experience.

This was easily one of the most comfortable doctor visits I have ever had. Dr. Master is extremely personable, knowledgeable and comforting. I will definitely continue to go to Dr. Master for my dermatologist needs and will recommend him to friends and family. I also really liked the location (plenty of parking) and facility (an old house converted into a modern medical office). I highly recommend visiting Dr. Master - I cannot imagine you being disappointed!
