If you are looking for a very good,dedicated dermatologist I recommend James Karkos M.D. He is a nice and caring person as well as being right on when diagnosing my skin cancers or pre cancers and has given me treatment choices when available. My scheduled appointments are always on time (thank you staff), I have never felt that the doctor didn't have time for me and I have always received follow up calls when necessary. I have nothing bad to say a out any of my appointments with Dr. Karkos or any of his staff. I recommend him and the staff 100%.
