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.
Wonderful advice, care, attention. Highly recommend!
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 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.
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.
I went to Dr Wilmoth on two occasions, both stemming from basal carcinoma on my face. He is a caring, compassionate doctor who is the best in his field. Dr Wilmoth performed Mohs surgery on me twice. I have a background in Biology. I highly recommend him.
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.
I rate Southern Dermatology/ The Skin Renewal Center a 100! They are awesome, no waiting, EVER, awesome staff, the office is spotless, and Dr. Boyse IS AMAZING…..LOVE LOVE LOVE HER, I will NEVER go anywhere else. I drive 1 1/2 hours to see her and she is definitely worth the trip. I highly recommend her and The Skin Renewal Center.
Highly recommend this office! I suffered from psoriasis for many years before deciding to see a doctor and it was the best decision I ever made.
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!
