Kathleen Stokes, M.D.

This was my first visit to the Affiliated Dermatologists and meeting Dr. Kathleen Stokes. I found the doctor to be pleasant and interested in my well-being. She recommended a follow‐up visit and was very informative regarding the condition. I look forward to my next visit.
Thank you, Dr. Stokes for your kindness, understanding, intelligence and compassion. I really appreciate you and for allowing me to express my fear and assisting me to calm down.
I found Dr. Stokes to be exceptionally detailed; I was very impressed at how much she was able to do at one time. While examining me she was able to communicate her findings regarding my health issue. She inspired a sense of confidence in me in regards to my feeling she really had a handle on my issue. Thumbs up to her!
I was a patient with a history of basil cell cancer. This appointment was for a spot on my back, which, of course, I was very worried about. Dr. Stokes explained that it was nothing to worry about which put my mind at ease immediately. She also took care of a spot on my hand. She is very professional and very competent. I trust her completely.
Dr. Stokes is a true asset to her profession, and to Affiliated Dermatologists. She is very personable, and sincerely cares about helping her patients. I feel that she is extremely respectful, and very willing to try multiple methods to help her patient find solutions to their concerns. Dr. Stokes goes above and beyond in helping patients obtain resources needed for their condition. HIGHLY recommend.
I have trusted Dr. Stokes for years, and I keep coming back because I trust her recommendations and the care she provides. She is honest and gives me information that I need to keep my skin in good shape!
Dr. Stokes uses her experience well and offers a variety of available treatments options while involving you in decision making. I like the fact that she is straight forward and says her opinion as if she would be the one getting care.
I have been a patient of Dr. Stokes for over 3 decades and have always received excellent care in remediating and solving my skin diseases, issues and problems. Consequently, I have referred my most beloved to Dr. Stokes; my mother, my daughter and my daughter-in-law (not to mention friends). Dr. Stokes makes careful observations and astute judgements in caring for my skin issues. Since skin cancer is in my familial history, it is important for me to trust my dermatologist, which I do entirely.
I had heard and read much about Dr. Stokes and how fantastic she is in her field of medicine. My appointment with her truly confirmed all of this information. She is professional, friendly, and prompt. I appreciated the well done written instructions for aftercare. These instructions "hit the nail on the head." They were clear, concise, and I did not need a medical degree to understand them. Great work!!
I absolutely love Dr. Stokes. I wouldn’t go to anyone else. I think she is beyond one of the best. I recommend Dr. Stokes to everyone I know. I truly believed she has saved me from developing aggressive skin cancer by catching it in time.
"I love Dr Stokes! I've recommended her to several people. I will continue to see her, she's the absolute best!"
"My entire Family and extended family go to Dr. Stokes upon my recommendation. All find her to be an excellent physician and are very pleased with her services. She has literally saved some of their lives as she has identified skin cancer in several of my extended family members and treated it quickly and thoroughly."
"She is professional, competent, caring, and communicative. I trust her assessment and treatment."
"Dr. Stokes is a true professional and so is the entire office staff!"
"I am so happy that I chose Dr. Stokes to be my dermatologist. The very first time I went was to have myself checked as my son was diagnosed with skin cancer. She put my mind at ease. She even asked me how he was doing after several years. She is outstanding."
"Dr. Stokes and her nursing assistants were so great to me. I had never been to see a dermatologist before. She and her staff were knowledgeable and very helpful in making my visit very comfortable. If needed, I will be back to see her."
"I always feel confident that I am receiving the best care from Dr. Stokes."
"Very glad we got a wellness exam because follow up was needed for something suspicious. Dr. Stokes very well spoken and informative."
"Dr. Stokes saved my nose several years ago and I will be forever grateful. She's terrific."
"Dr. Stokes is always so personable and always explains everything very clearly, she never rushes through an appointment, and always makes sure you have a clear understanding."
"Dr. Stokes is incredibly competent. I am fortunate to have found her. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a doctor who stays current yet not faddish. I believe that she treats my skin as she would her own skin."
"I have recommended Dr. Stokes to other family members who were satisfied with her care."
"I highly trust and appreciate her expertise and guidance toward my medical decisions on skin cancer issues."
"She understands my condition, works to prevent serious complications, treats me with respect, I trust her and have confidence in her. I have recommended her to others."

Gretchen Zirbel, M.D.

I look forward to seeing Dr. Zirbel each time because she always takes her time, is very relaxed, comforting, and knowledgeable about any skin issues I have. I worry because my mother had a melanoma and Dr. Zirbel is very conscious of this and reassuring about my skin issues if any.
I have been seeing Dr. Zirbel for over 20 years for various skin issues and I find her to be very knowledgeable and professional. This is why I continue to see her instead of other dermatologists who are closer to my home. I very much trust her expertise in her field and would recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
Warm and engaging, explained things in a way that my teenage daughters could understand. Also, provided an environment that allowed them to feel comfortable and ask questions.
Dr. Zirbel is extremely nice, compassionate, listens to you and gives you honest answers. She explains to you how you need to take care of procedures she has done. I have told family members about her and sent them to her!
Dr. Zirbel is extremely nice, compassionate, listens to you and gives you honest answers. She explains to you how you need to take care of procedures she has done. I have told family members about her and sent them to her!
Dr. Zirbel is wonderful. My wife and I recommend her to family and friends. She listens, explains things well and does a wonderful job with her procedures.
Great dermatologist, knowledgeable interested in your questions and input into care plan. Very professional staff.....wouldn't go anywhere else.
I am very confident in the care and skin advice I receive from Dr. Zirbel. I am so confident that I travel from my home in Chicago to the Milwaukee area for her expertise. I will be an Affiliated Dermatologist patient as long as Dr. Zirbel practices there.
Excellent care! Caring, concerned and kind! Dr. Zirbel puts a lot of thought into her recommendations thank you so much.
Dr. Zirbel has always met all my expectations and has surpassed any other dermatologist I have ever visited. I would HIGHLY recommend her to my family and friends.
"Dr. Zirbel is very professional yet extremely personable and makes me feel comfortable. I would recommend her always."
"I saw her for a rash concern but she also checked my whole body for anything unusual on the skin as well as removing these small bumps I had on my face."
"I was so very pleased to have Dr. Zirbel as my physician. She is caring, respectful and professional in every aspect. She is a fine doctor who took time to listen to me and gave me answers. I am delighted to have her as my physician. I thank her very much for her wonderful and caring personality."
"She always makes me feel comfortable as a patient and does not treat my concerns lightly. She is thorough and has an immediate doctor/patient connection which is very important to me. If I do not like the doctor, I will find a new one."
"Dr. Zirbel is very efficient and very knowledgeable in helping me with my skin problems! I would highly recommend her to others!"
"Very professional woman, glad I had my appointment with her."
"She has a very easy-going personality, I never feel like I am rushed in or out of her office. She is very thorough."
"Even though it's been a few years since I saw Dr. Zirbel for rosacea I was able to get an appointment in a timely manner for a new problem. The visit took care of my problem and a few other spots. I was very happy with the results."
"I have been seeing Dr. Zirbel for quite awhile now...she is kind , caring , gentle , and concerned with my healthcare , and very informative with helping me make my choices for any care that is needed"

James Russell, M.D.

Dr. Russell is an excellent dermatologist... I am very satisfied with his medical knowledge and his attention to my condition. He is very personable and made me feel relaxed. He answered all my questions and advised me as to the best way to continue with my condition.
Dr. James Russell is a professional in every way! He is so knowledgeable, is kind, caring, has a sense of humor and NEVER makes me feel I am being rushed through an appointment. He is EVERyTHING a doctor should be!
I found Dr. Russell to be very professional, personable, and patient. He listened to my concerns, and answered each of my questions completely, and in language I could understand. I would definitely recommend Dr. Russell to my friends and family members.
Dr. Russell was extremely professional, knowledgeable, communicative, and caring. He and his entire staff were exceptional. After spending considerable time checking my lesion and doing a painless biopsy, Dr. Russell informed me, in a very understanding way, that I had skin cancer, (not an easy conversation to have). He immediately took the time to tell me about all the positive treatments that were available, and referred me to a surgeon that routinely worked on skin cancer lesions such as mine. In short, when I left Dr. Russell, I knew that I just saw an outstanding Dermatologist and felt extremely positive about my prognosis. A few days later the biopsy results were confirmed and my appointment with the surgeon was quickly made by his efficient staff.
I find Dr. James Russell to be as easy going and approachable as any physician I have ever seen. He's a master at avoiding the jargon of his specialty and explaining things so they are easily understood by a non MD. I feel blessed to be able to continue my care with another exceptional Dr. Russell.
My sincere thanks to Dr. Russell for sharing his time with me and for answering all of my skin care related questions! I'm extremely pleased with his expertise.
I had a great experience with Dr. Russell and appreciate the fact that Affiliated Dermatologists has remained open during the pandemic.
I have recommended James Russell MD to other people. I cannot say enough good things about him. He is outstanding! My last dermatologist was extremely fast and was condescending when I shared information about skin cancer. Dr. Russell is very polite, spends enough time, knowledgeable, an excellent doctor. I am glad I found him, switched doctors and highly recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Russell, thank you for caring about me and my recently discovered condition. You were attentive, caring, understanding, awesome communicator...... I appreciated the time you took with me.
This has been my third visit to Dr. Russell since my previous physician left for another practice. Selecting Dr. Russell was the luck of the draw. I couldn't have made a better choice. I never have to wait long in the exam room before he arrives. He listens to what I have to say, and takes care of my skin issues and they're done until the next year. He doesn't waste any time his, or mine.
"Dr. Russell was very professional yet personable. I felt very comfortable with this visit. I felt like a valued client. I would recommend Dr. Russell to any/all of my friends."
"Dr. Russell was personable and knowledgeable. He put me at ease almost immediately and what he prescribed is working nicely. One of the better visits I've had with a dermatologist."
"I have recommended Dr James Russell to my work associates and friends, I was very happy with my visit. I have recommended Affiliated Dermatologists because of the professional and friendly staff. Thank you."
"I was very pleased and impressed with my first visit to Affiliated Dermatologists. Dr. Russell was super easy to talk to, very thorough and very informative. I learned a lot and would most definitely recommend him to any one of my friends and family. The front desk staff was also very friendly."
"He is a most understanding, friendly, dedicated professional who makes you feel at ease at all times."
"He was so personable, listened attentively, and was thorough in his examination. Just a great personality."
"The whole office was very pleasant. Lori, the nurse, took time to explain things as well. Overall a very good experience."
"Dr. Russell was very professional and caring throughout my visit. He put me at ease regarding my condition. Thank you Dr. Russell."
"Dr James Russell has been consistent, caring, and engaging in each of my visits over the past 2.5 years. That is all I can ask from any doctor."
"Wow, great M.D. very comfortable around him. Really explained and helped with my situation. Great office staff also. Highly recommend AD."
"Great bed‐side manner. Enjoyed my visit with him immensely."
"He is always so cheerful. Checks me over and works on what is required. Always writes down explanations and instructions. Not that going to the doctor is ever completely an enjoyable experience, but I never dread these regular appointments."
"Great combination of trusted care and expertise and personal/'bedside' manner."

Sun Young Ruggeri, M.D.

Dr. Ruggeri is amazing! She was very thorough in my initial check up with her, took necessary time and I felt sincerely cared about as a patient. She was personable and easy to talk to. This follow up visit, she explained every step of the procedure and made sure I was okay with it all. I am thankful for her and know that I am in very good hands with her care.
I cannot say enough about the time, attention and care that I receive from Dr. Ruggeri. I have referred countless people to her as she is an exceptional doctor who has never failed to help me understand my options and work with me to find a solution that I am comfortable with. I always feel like she will take the time to understand my concerns and talk through my options. I cannot say enough about Dr. Ruggeri and the nurses that work with her.
I can honestly say Dr. Ruggeri is the only doctor I actually look forward to seeing. Her knowledge base is phenomenal and she is incredibly personable. I have recommended her too many friends and family members and will continue to do so without hesitation.
As always, Dr. Ruggeri is a professional, competent and fully knowledgeable about me past, present and future. She is easy to talk with and I understand her completely. I feel safe in her care of me. Her nurse is exceptional and professional as well. And Dr. Ruggeri works well with her. I am impressed with the work she does with identifying, performing surgery and recommending other doctors for my skin (ie. mohs). I thank her and her staff for the care I receive.
I was so happy that she was able to see me during this Stay at Home time to examine a new spot I have on my leg. She is always so professional yet personal.
Dr. Ruggeri is always so pleasant and very empathetic to your concerns. She knows exactly what is wrong and then proceeds to explain your condition and the treatment provided. I was very concerned about my condition before my appointment. Upon leaving her office I was very relieved by what she told me and the treatment required. She also advised her staff to find a pharmacy for me that had the lowest price for the prescription I required, as this medication could be very expensive. She definitely went above and beyond what I expected.
Dr. Ruggeri is very professional and helpful. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a dermatologist. Her staff was also very helpful and informative.
I started with Dr. Ruggeri several years ago after 20+ years with another dermatologist. I learned about Dr. Ruggeri from my wife who had visited with her and who was very satisfied and pleased with her care. Dr. Ruggeri provided a level of care and communication far higher than my previous dermatologist. She is exceptionally professional, has an engaging style and listens to my concerns. Yet she does have a sense of humor too. She is realistic and clear and I appreciate her advice and care.
Dr. Ruggeri has an excellent bedside manner. I loved her plain spoken and very personable approach, underpinned clearly by her expertise. Thanks for taking me in as a patient!
Dr. Ruggeri is an exemplary physician! She is cheerful and kind as well as thorough. She gives you an opportunity to ask questions and never seems like she's in a hurry. Seeing Dr. Ruggeri is always a pleasant experience. We leave feeling very satisfied and well cared for.
"Dr. Ruggeri has always taken the time to fully explain things that she has found and what to expect. Have never felt rushed and very comfortable with her explanations of my problems."
"Extremely knowledgeable and thorough. Very friendly and personable while always the professional!"
"Dr. Ruggeri is a fantastic doctor. Kind, relatable and extremely intelligent. She does an excellent job of remembering my rather complicated medical history and keeping it in mind as it relates to my skin. I have recommended her in the past and happily will do so again any time the opportunity arises."
"Dr. Ruggeri is, without a doubt, the best Dermatologist that I have visited. I will continue to see Dr. Ruggeri as needed and recommend her to anyone that asks!"
"She is a great Doctor and makes all appointments great with knowledge and interaction with issues. A++++++"
"Dr. Ruggeri is one of the most personable doctors I have. She is very thorough with her exams."
"Excellent clinician with true caring!"
"Dr Ruggeri was extremely helpful & explained how to cure my itchy symptoms in an easy to understand way."
"Dr. Ruggeri is absolutely the best around. She knows ME; she knows my husband and the issue he has had. The best part is that she reviews our records before the visit so she is aware of history, condition and concerns. Honestly, I wish that all doctors could be as friendly, as professional, as aware, as knowledgeable and as profession as she is. All of you are very lucky to have her on your staff."

Steven Schuckit, M.D.

Dr. Schuckit was professional, friendly and caring. The wait was short and he took the time to explain to me my problems. I definitely would recommend him and not hesitate to come and see him with any future problems. He’s a very kind Doctor.
Dr. Schuckit is so pleasant and professional to work with. In addition to me, he treats both of my teenage boys and has been right about every treatment. He remembers them and asks about them at my appointment which is not expected but appreciated. I couldn't be more pleased with the care that I receive from him. I wish more doctors had his combination of professionalism and care for their patients.
Dr. Schuckit is clearly trained in Motivational Interviewing or another type of excellent communication skills/bedside manner. He asked several times throughout the conversation, "What do you think about this?" in a non‐awkward way. He balanced his "expert" role with listening to my concerns and was full of care and concern. It's easy to find a doctor who is skilled in his/her profession, but it's much harder to find a doctor who is ALSO skilled in reflective listening. Because Dr. Schuckit was the doctor with the first calendar opening when I called, I thought to myself before the appointment, "maybe this is the doctor nobody wants to see ‐ which is why he has an opening." I could not have been more wrong! Everyone should be seeing this doctor who is skilled in attending to patient concerns and partnering in the decision‐making process. Thank you!
Dr. Schuckit is very compassionate and he provides patients with consistent, superior care. He and his Staff, particularly Becky, go out of their way to assure prescriptions are filled without glitches and messages in Azalea are responded to the same day. I can't thank Dr. Schuckit and team enough for seeing my daughter through a very difficult acne situation. She has her confidence back THANKS TO YOU!
What a wonderful man! I told my husband that Dr. Schuckit is probably one of the nicest persons I have ever met personable, friendly, and gentle. Was worried all day about the appointment for nothing! He totally put me at ease. I have already given his name to 3 family/friends. He removed something from my face and sent it off for biopsy; thank God he did as it turns out I have squamous cell carcinoma. I am so lucky to have had such a SMART and concerned doctor! He is the best!
I have only seen Doctor Schuckit twice, but in both instances, he was personable, professional and direct. I not only feel I was well care for, but my time wasn't wasted sitting around or having irrelevant discussions. He was completely on task, addressed my issues and got me on my way quickly. I wish all medical experiences were like this.
Dr. Schuckit is very "heartfelt" when an issue does arise and wants to make sure you understand the importance of taking care of it immediately to avoid more of an issue. He cares about you as a patient and addresses your fears and future concerns. I believe he truly does feel bad when he knows the procedure he performs is going to cause you pain and discomfort and does everything he can to make the process as bearable and pain free as possible.
"Dr. Schuckit conducted himself in a professional and personable manner. I was very comfortable and confident in the care that I received and am pleased to have found a dermatologist that I have this kind of confidence in. I have already recommended him to friends and family."
"Very attentive with dialogue and eye contact‐‐‐very nice to interact with a medical professional who looks at the patient and not the computer!!!"
"I feel Dr. Schuckit is a very thorough physician. He listens to my concerns and addresses them immediately. I have recommended him to others."
"Easy going but professional. Is a "real" type of person. Very good at remembering me when I come in to see him and is a sincere, genuine, caring listener. Thank you Dr. Schuckit. I appreciate it."
"Dr. Schuckit has always been very respectful to both my son and myself. He talks to my son as the patient and doesn't talk over him. He includes him on the decision-making process and is always willing to help us do what is best for my son's care in the most convenient and cost‐effective way."
"We are so grateful for the accuracy that he was able to diagnose my husband’s condition and was able to get him in the road to recovery so fast."
"I am very impressed with the knowledge Dr. Schuckit has and he is very easy to discuss medical matters with. He is readily willing to discuss your medical issues and explain possible treatments."
"I was very concerned about skin problem; he listened and carefully examined the area. He then patiently explained the situation and reassured me that everything was fine."
"I have utilized your clinic in the past and have always been satisfied. This was my first visit with Dr. Schuckit and I was very pleased with his caring attitude and obvious clinical knowledge. I was particularly pleased he was willing to spend the time to explain the details of my condition and care plan without any feeling of my being rushed. I would recommend Dr. Schuckit very highly."
"Doctor Schuckit and his staff are the best and I would recommend his services to all my friends and family."
"I found Dr. Schuckit after my dermatologist moved out of the area. Dr. Schuckit exceeded my expectations. i am so fortunate to be the recipient of his medical knowledge and application of it."
"Absolutely the best visit with a doctor I have EVER had in my life!! Dr. Schuckit was wonderful at explaining what I have, and the treatment options available. I will recommend him and his staff to all I see."
"Dr. Schuckit was wonderful! He was patient, thorough and understanding."

Matthew Fleming, M.D.

Dr. Fleming is very attentive to all aspects of medical care with regard to his area of specialty. He answers all my questions in clear, understandable language.
Dr. Fleming and his staff were awesome! From my first phone call all the way to my goodbye out the door, everyone, absolutely everyone, was kind, helpful, caring, professional and experienced. I so appreciated it and will definitely recommend Dr. Fleming and his staff for anyone.
Dr. Fleming is very thorough and easy to work with. He is very open to sharing his observations and is willing to address any questions or concerns. He also provides excellent advice regarding skin care in general, and specifically for me.
Dr. Fleming was wonderful after my visit I submitted a photo of a skin condition by email that I wanted Dr. Fleming to evaluate. He did so thoroughly and contacted me within two hours after I submitted the photo. I really appreciated that.
Dr. Fleming did an excellent job treating me. I will highly recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr. Fleming is very attentive to all aspects of medical care with regard to his area of specialty. He answers all my questions in clear, understandable language.
I was very pleased with my whole experience with Dr. Fleming. He’s the kind of doctor you don’t find very often. He offered options, medical insight, and frankness, and I left the office very satisfied.
I like Dr. Fleming’s approach doesn't lecture you just gives you the facts, asks if you have questions, listens to what you say and follows through with what he says he will do.
I appreciate the skill and caring from Dr. Fleming and his staff.  I've worked at, as well as been a patient at, major medical institutions, and feel that I'm well taken care of here.
"He answered all my questions and told me what to expect with my therapy."
"This is the first time I needed to see a dermatologist, and was very impressed with Dr. Fleming, the staff, and the facility. Thank you for a positive visit."
"I drive from Brookfield to Germantown because of the excellent relationship."
"Dr. Fleming really seemed to care about my well-being, and about providing the best treatment options for me. Thank you!"
"I received honest and excellent care. This was more than I expected. I would not hesitate to come back to Dr. Fleming if I have another problem."

Leah Toppel Nelson, PA-C

Leah was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She took time listening to ALL of my questions, even those not related to the reason for my visit. She took extra time with me and I felt completely confident about her skill and treatment. I would highly recommend her!!
Leah is amazing! My 16‐year‐old son is seeing her for acne. He was resistant to go see a specialist for acne because it is embarrassing. Leah made him, and me, incredibly comfortable. She explained the treatments that she wanted to start him on and also explained what we could also try if the first treatment did not work. I saw relief on his face knowing there was a treatment for the acne. Leah is an asset to the office and will be who our family will be seeing and who we will recommend to anyone that asks.
I loved Leah! She was kind, informative and went above and beyond just giving an annual wellness exam. She gave me tons of info, answers all my questions and I felt very comfortable with her. Looking forward to seeing her again and highly recommended her to others already.
Leah is always extremely helpful in answering our questions and explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. I had some additional questions after our visit and she called me back and was able to talk thru them with me. I appreciate her concern and professionalism.
I would recommend Leah to anyone that is looking for an extremely competent, caring, and skilled dermatologist. Leah even remembered an issue that I had brought to her attention over 3 months prior to this visit! I have never experienced that before and it is one of many reasons that I am so pleased to have found this great provider.
I was very happy with my visit. Leah was concerned enough to ask doctor’s advice and brought doctor in for observation. Leah is very kind and I was given attention to my situation. Even the nurse took care of a burn not related to my original concern. Nice job!
I was so pleased with Leah. I have recommended her, very thoughtful in all respects. Will plan to keep Leah for future appointments as I felt she really cared about my problems.
I got an appointment within a week which I was thrilled about. I was very happy with the information and the treatment that Leah provided. She has a great disposition for patients and is very knowledgeable in her field. I would absolutely go back and recommend her to others.
Leah was so kind and understanding with my concerns. I wasn't able to get in to see my usual doctor but I felt I was in good hands. I couldn't be happier with the treatment I received, and have recommended Affiliated Dermatologists to others.
I saw Leah for a mole check and ended up having a mole removed. Leah discussed with me either having the mole removed that day or keeping an eye on it. Having it removed was a piece of cake and Leah made me feel very comfortable the entire time. Thanks Leah!
"Her passion, personality and counsel were fantastic. I would highly recommend her."
"Leah was wonderful. This was a new patient visit in addition to having a specific concern. Leah took time to talk to me, understand my background and did a thorough exam. She was great and I would recommend her to anyone!"
"Leah's awesome! She always explains things well and never treats me like my questions are stupid. My skin looks substantially better than it did 6 months ago. "
"She was very kind and knowledgeable about her practice. She made me feel very welcomed and understood. I felt like she cared about me as a person and cared about my concerns."
"I really appreciated that Leah contacted me later that day to follow up. That was above and beyond!"
"I’m glad she took the time to research a question that I had even though she didn’t know the answer and not dismissing it. She made me feel very comfortable. Its much appreciated to have someone actually listen."

Lauren Wile, PA-C

Lauren was very easy to talk to. She listened to what I had to say. We discussed the condition; she offered options if current treatment didn't satisfy me. Lauren was clear about when to follow up with her. Lauren made great eye contact and I felt like she truly cared about me; I really like her.
Lauren was pleasant, at the same time business like, friendly and cheerful. She gave me the feeling that all was well after my appointment.
Lauren was amazing! She really helped me and cared about how I was feeling and what I was going through. Lauren gave me options on how I WANTED to go about this. She was AMAZING!!
Lauren Wile did an outstanding job of helping me understand my situation, performed a biopsy seamlessly and followed up promptly with results and did a great job of enabling the next phase of my treatment by recommending a Mohs professional which I am set up to see in March to get my condition resolved.
I have seen other Dermatologists in the past and none were as nice and as helpful as Lauren. It was a pleasure being seen by her. She helped me a great deal and the issue I was having is clearing up nicely. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well.
Lauren is an excellent PA. I felt very confident in her care. She performed a couple of procedures with great skill. I also appreciated the care given to me by her assistant. This was a terrific first experience at Affiliated Dermatologists.
I appreciated Lauren's attentiveness, concern, and professionalism in addressing my skin issue.
This was my first visit to dermatology specialist. Lauren was professional but personable and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment. She gave me clear directions as to what needed me to do. Lauren moved briskly through the appointment but did not rush. It was great that her medical assistant was able to spend some extra time to answer some additional questions regarding my prescription. They make a good team.
Lauren was very personable, relaxed and very thorough in checking my body for skin cancer. She explained the areas I questioned as of no concern.
Lauren was outstanding! I was nervous initially about seeing a new doctor but she made me feel so comfortable! Her bedside manner is topnotch! I am thrilled to have found a compassionate and caring health professional! Thank you!
"Lauren was very easy to talk to. She listened to what I had to say. We discussed the condition. She offered options if current treatment didn't satisfy me. She was clear about when to follow up with her. Made great eye contact and I felt like she truly cared about me. Really like her."
"She was very easy to talk to, listened carefully to my concerns, and explained everything very clearly in terms of what to be aware of while I use the topical cream she prescribed. I really liked her. :-)"
"Lauren was fabulous! Easiest and most productive appointment I’ve had in a while. Thanks!"
"She was fantastic, felt like she truly cared and I felt comfortable talking to her about issues I was concerned about where other doctors I might feel silly saying them."
"Very informative and knowledgeable and very personable. I will return."

Laura Richter Ozimek, PA-C

I first received care from Laura during her time with at another facility. I was impressed with her thorough exam, as well as, her knowledge of skin cancer issues. Laura is very professional, yet gentle when performing a procedure. I have had other dermatologists care for my concerns; But I feel Laura is one of the best.
Laura was very friendly, knowledgeable and easy to voice my concerns to. Most of all I didn’t at all feel rushed and she took the time to explain things and listen. I’m not always comfortable going for a skin check but she made it easy!
Laura was very warm, sympathetic and listened carefully. She explained all my options and each step of my procedure. Not only very skilled, but a very sincere and kind person.
Excellent care, Laura was professional, but relatable. She collaborated with me in terms of the treatment plan. The samples/suggestions for products (additional to the prescription) she gave me were excellent and I can already see a difference in my skin.
Laura was great. She has a wonderful bedside manner and I'm so glad I got to speak to her about some of my concerns. I feel she was honest and forthright about my questions. I really appreciated her time and I hope to see her again at my next appointment.
Laura was incredibly kind and informative. She took the time to ask questions; get to know my health history and took that information into consideration when recommending medication and treatment. I didn’t feel rushed or unheard in the appointment.
As a new patient, I was extremely happy with my visit to Laura Ozimek, PAC. I saw her for a second opinion on one issue and two new issues. Laura confidently addressed all of my questions and concerns and put me at ease with the decisions I made on each issue. I also learned that she would do a full body check for 'bad' moles if needed. This was important to me because my daughter has a history of precancerous moles and it gives me great peace of mind that I can have a medical professional do this check, rather than her doing it on her own (or having me do it). I can't say enough good things about my experience.
