Featuring Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery - Dermatologist on Demand™

Featuring Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery - Dermatologist on Demand™
Dr. Cherly Burgess explains how they treat their patients at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. With the highly professional and dedicated staff at Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, they provide the best dermatology service and the latest advances in medical technology to their patients.

When patients call to our practice, first of all, they are greeted with a very kind, loving voice. Alejandra is our receptionist, and people just tend to love her. One thing though that we do express is customer service. She’s worked in the customer service industry for many years, and therefore, practice makes perfect. She welcomes everyone with open arms.

We don’t like to have patience wait. So when an appointment is scheduled, we confirm the appointment, and if you can’t make it at the time that you were scheduled, then we go ahead and replace your appointment and give someone else your appointment. So that keeps the flow going. So if you have an emergency, we usually can stick you in the schedule with one appointment in the morning and one appointment in the afternoon that we keep open for emergencies.

We don’t try to keep our patients waiting. They have full access to the practice definitely within the week or a couple of days. And like I was saying, on an emergency basis, we have two appointments open every day.

The back-office medical assistants are very versed and skilled. We have lasers, we have an esthetician, and we also have the medical side of dermatology that we see in. So everyone feels pretty welcome in that. This is not just a cosmetic office, but we see medical conditions, and we do surgery. We do a whole host of dermatologic procedures and address any issues that are concerning the skin, hair, and nails.
