I don’t think it can get any better than Southern Dermatology, the doctors, staff and many services offered are awesome. I have been going to Southern Dermatology for over 5 years. Dr Briley is my first and only attending dermatologist. Not knowing where to go and fairly new to NC, they were my first choice when I knew I probably had a skin cancer on my back. It was cancerous and I have had many treatments since for actinic keratosis, precancerous lesions. Because of the traveling distance I have attempted to find a good doctor who would be closer to no avail. I didn’t find anyone whom listened or would/could follow the treatment plan Dr Briley was following and I preferred given the alternatives. Long story shorter, I went back to Southern Dermatology and Dr Briley, never to stray again. I just don’t think there is any better place to go. The doctors, staff and service is awesome. Most of all, through out my continuing treatment, Dr Briley always lays out my options and I along with her input make the decision as to what treatment to pursue. That is not the case with most doctors.
Dr. Challgren is a very good dermatologist. He is conservative in his medical recommendations and very friendly and caring. He has done amazing things for the overall look of my skin. Highly recommend him.
First off let me give you a little back story. I have been trying to get help with my skin for many years. The dermatologists that I have been to couldn’t figure out my problem. Each time I saw one, it would be three months until I can get in. I tried to get into Duke, and they kept giving me the run-around. When I finally had enough, the head of HR said that they can’t help me. I was desperate and found The Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center of Raleigh. I told them my story and they said, I’m sorry but we don’t have anything open for today, how about tomorrow. I couldn’t believe it, the next day and I was in. I explained my issues to the nurse and she took notes. Very quickly, the doctor came in and examined me. He included me his diagnosis and explained to me what he thinks it could be. He also worked with me with my current finical issue. He was able to do testing that would keep my cost down. Even after the testing, he made time to see me (not a scheduled visit) and explained his findings. His whole staff is very helpful. Everyone knows me by name. Everyone is very friendly yet professional. I will recommend this place to anyone that needs help with their skin.
The Service at the Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center never fails to amaze me. Everyone that I have encountered there is so courteous and pleasant. I will definitely continue my services for all of my aesthetic needs here. I highly recommend them for any of your aesthetic needs. You see immediate results and if you have any questions at all, they take time out and give you detailed information on the services in question.
A+ for Dr. Briley and staff. I feel confident I am in good hands with Dr. Briley. She is attentive, caring and extremely knowledgeable . They usually are able to schedule me the next day and I’m always called back within 5 minutes of waiting in the office.
My insurance changed about a year ago and I could no longer see Dr. Laura and I realized how wonderful she is compared to other dermatologists in the area. I have severe plaque psoriasis and have struggled to find ANY medication that even slightly helped. Since working with Laura we have finally found a medication that works wonders, Stellara. Originally I had to come into the office every 3 months to get the shot. The copay for most insurances isn’t cheap for a specialist… and when I mentioned this to her she told me that she really only needed to see me once a year for blood work and I could come and get the shot with a nurse to avoid the copay (as long as I promised to call if anything weird was going on). THEN after about a year of that, approved with my insurance me being able to give myself the shot at home. This way, I see her once a year and call her with any problems. Since changing insurances the new doctors I have met with want me to come in for the shot and see them every three months… which is really just a way to for them to make money in my eyes. I have had the same condition for going on 20 years and have been giving myself the Stellara shot at home for 2+ years… there is no reason I could see (that isnt monetary) for any dermatologist to see otherwise. I recently changed back to the previous insurance that Southern Derm accepts and I cant wait to make an appointment and make Laura my dermatologist again. As to office atmosphere- mostly adults… not really “kid friendly” when it comes to things to keep them busy (which doesn’t really affect me)… never have had to wait a long time…. easy parking…. and friendly nursing/ scheduling staff!
I hate going to the doctor period but this place is fantastic. I love my doctor she’s quick and thorough. If I need medical and cosmetic I’ve been treated same day. Both the doctors on staff as well as the nurses on the cosmetic side are very good at what they do.
Very Impressed. After reading the reviews for Dr Boyse I almost canceled my appointment. I’m glad I didn’t. The whole experience was pleasant. It was very easy to check in, the staff was very helpful. When the nurse called my name I was still a little nervous. The nurse was very pleasant. She asked me some questions about what I do for my acne. She was very nice. I was less nervous after speaking to her. Dr Boyse came in the room and reviewed my routine and diet. She really explained what causes acne and how to treat it. She gave me some great suggestions. After she left Nichole went over my new medications again, made sure I understood it. She even gave me samples! I told her that I have tried so many things in the past and was really hoping this works. She shared that she also has acne and how important it is to stick with a routine. It was reassuring to hear her tell me this. Her skin is flawless. Very Impressed. The whole experience was pleasant. It was very easy to check in, the staff was very helpful.

I never thought it was possible to go in public without makeup. I will recommend Dr Boyse too all my friends.
This is the best dermatologist in Raleigh! I’ve dealt with eczema my whole life and been to many practices in Raleigh and Durham and this practice is the best! They have helped me come up with a wonderful treatment plan and go the extra mile several times a week to accommodate me and my infant son when I come in for light treatment. Tracy is wonderful and the nurse staff is so great. I’d give them 10 stars if possible!
Dr. Briley was most helpful with offering several courses of treatments for my leg and hand issues. Her explanation for each option was helpful and insightful. Also, Jenny in the Skin Renewal Center was very personable and informative about a procedure on my hands.
