I became a patient at Southern Dermatology (formerly The Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center, PA) when my original doctor in Chapel Hill suggested I find someone closer to my home and work. I needed to have a skin condition addressed in urgent order. I searched around various online media and I came across Southern Dermatology. I called their office on Lake Boone Trail and asked if they were taking on new patients. The person that had answered said that they were. When I verified the type of insurance that I had, an appointment was scheduled for me. When I arrived at the office, I was greeted by the front desk person. After getting the obligatory paperwork out of the way and waiting for a short period in the waiting room, I was called in. The nurse asked me various questions to help determine my condition, etc. Then, after a short wait, Dr. Challgren walked in and introduced himself. He recommended the appropriate treatment and I have been under that treatment for the past six weeks. Since then, I have gotten to know nearly the entire staff and I can vouch that these are some of the nicest and most professional individuals that I have met. I would highly recommend this practice for their ability to address even the most complex dermatological issues. My experience has been excellent!
The best dermatologists in the Triangle area. I have been a patient of the Dermatology & Skin Care Center since 2005. I recommend them highly. The Skin Care Center not only offers state of the art procedures, they are affordable. The staff and doctors listen carefully to your concerns and recommend only what they think you need to address your problem. Pleasant and professional at all times.
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.
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.
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.
I’m still pleased with the staff and, services I receive during my visits. The service is GREAT!!! From the moment you walk in the door it’s like being with old friends. I’ve been using the services for years and every time I visit the service is top notch.
This is the best Dermatology practice in the Triangle. I have been going there off and on for years and cant say enough about their friendliness and professionalism. Great doctors, great staff.
Dr. Boyse has been my doctor for over 5 years, she is one of the best dermatologists I have ever had, both for skin care and dermatological needs. Five stars all the way!
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.
