"What a refreshing experience I had today with Dr. Eric Wilkerson and his new dermatology practice. I got my Botox done and didn’t feel a thing! His new office is crisp and clean and centrally located so it is easy to find. I had the pleasure of being the very first client / patient and was quite impressed with the professionalism and ability of my new Dermatologist. I have a feeling this is going to be a life long relationship. Best wishes, Skippi Diaz Nutritionist / Personal Trainer"
"Everyone was awesome. From the doctor to the staff. I can’t have asked for a better experience."
"They made me feel comfortable from start to finish. I had a skin cancer screening and a minor procedure I was concerned about. I was in and out in 1 hour and even waited in the lobby for a bit while they verified my insurance information."
"Loved every aspect of my visit. As soon as I walked in the receptionist and everybody else was very sweet and very informative and as well as the assistant to the doctor and obviously the doctor was amazing! Previous doctor I went to misdiagnosed me and now I am happy to say that my skin is 98% better! And I know the 2% will be coming very shortly!"
"Amazing staff! Made my visit an easy one."
