Dr. Master Testimonials

Patient reviews for our dermatologists comment on their communication skills, attentiveness, bedside manner and most importantly--excellent outcomes! If you had the best experience, please write an online review. If we could have been better, please tell us, so we can further improve.

I had a wonderful experience with Dermatology Arts. The staff and doctors here are very knowledgeable and professional. They are also genuinely caring of your issues and will address any questions or concerns you have — I had a problem which required a larger surgery and they made the entire process very smooth and easy, as well as during pre-op and post-op.Throughout the process, they helped me to understand what the issues were and how they would address them. They also went out of their way to follow up and make themselves available post surgery. As a result, I had a great recovery and I’m no longer dealing with the issues I had before. I’m extremely happy with my experience and would highly recommend Dermatology Arts to anyone looking for good dermatology.

I work in the healthcare industry and have super high standards, so when I didn’t wasn’t impressed with the physicians at my healthcare facility, I turned ito Healthgrades.com for recommendations on a dermatologist to treat my sons acne. Dr. Master’s profile was rated highly by numerous patients so I decided to give them a try. His bedside manner was perfect. He took the time to get to know me and more importantly, my son. I feel confident that the treatment he prescribed to my son will work and if not he will adjust it accordingly. We both felt very good about our visit when we left the office.

I have been a regular patient of Dr. Master for a number of years, first in Yakima WA, then at his former Bellevue office and recently at his new digs, also in Bellevue. After one excision for a small basal cell cancer all the visits have been for annual checkups. In every case I have found the same professionalism at Dermatology Arts. The staff is courteous, friendly and competent; the appointments are punctual the facilities are clean and orderly; the data systems are perfectly integrated into the practice without being intrusive during the appointment; nothing is rushed. Dr. Master has the warm manner of a longtime family practitioner while at the same time being up on the latest technology.

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!!

The doctor was a great personality and explained everything to me in terms I could digest. He provided realistic options up front and put me in control of my health. I got all the info I needed and will definitely return in the future.

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!

Great visit with a great doctor. I haven’t had a doctor give me so much of his undivided attention in years. I wish the rest of the medical world could follow Dr. Master’s example!
