"Dr Wilkerson was referred to me by my primary care physician and I am very thankful he was. After being in a trauma accident sustaining multiple wounds, I encountered a rash and irritation around them. I could not afford to get any infection while healing all my injuries. Dr Wilkerson and his assistant Jackie were friendly and gentle. They asked many questions and thoroughly examined the injury site. The doctor’s level of care was exceptional and he took his time to answer all my questions patiently. His treatment plan ‘cured’ my issue and I look forward to my follow up appointment. Jackie was courteous and gracious enough to call me a week after my appointment to follow up and see how I was feeling and how my recovery was progressing."



"I’ve seen Dr. Wilkerson three times now and have never felt like it’s been a rushed visit like other dermatologists I’ve been to. He’s been able to drastically improve skin issues that I’ve dealt with for years. Very clean and professional practice."



"Dr. Wilkerson and team are amazing! I've had multiple mohs surgeries with him and am really pleased with how it went. I've had other skin surgeries with my previous dermatologists, Dr. Wilkerson is the best by far!"



"This is a dermatologist we physicians use ! Highly recommended !"



"I had to switch Dr's due to insurance change. Finding Dr Wilkerson was a stroke of luck. He was compassionate. efficient and fantastic at his craft . His pricing for all the cosmetic offerings like Botox and IPL is a great value. His practice is truly excellent . They fit me in due to an issue and I was completely satisfied ."
