Reviews

"This office is beautiful. The staff is caring, efficient and first rate. I was calling in right away and Jennifer was great. After my visit, Kara, who is also great, told me to crack the door when I was dressed and ready to leave, as soon as that door was cracked she was there with my samples and my refills already called in to the pharmacy. This office is wonderful."

"Took my 92 year old mother to Housel Dermatology for a lesion on her face. It was biopsied and found to be skin cancer. She is now scheduled for surgery with Dr. Housel. Our experience with this office was excellent. The office staff, nurse and Elizabeth were wonderful. They were kind and put my Mom at ease from the moment they met her. I expect her surgical procedure to be done with expertise by Dr. Housel as I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things about his skills."

"It’s a well run professional practice. I’ve been there several times and everyone there has been very helpful. I had my first appointment with Liz (a physician assistant) who did a very thorough job and removed several atypical moles. This is the place to go for any skin problems. The doctor and his staff have great reviews and there’s a reason for that. The office is beautiful and everyone working there seems happy."
