Love this practice!

My whole family sees dr. Sommerville. She does my skin checks, Botox and laser treatments. She takes care of our acne and removed precancerous spots and basal cell cancers from my husband. Dr. Sommerville is exceptional and detail oriented. I have always been pleased and feel safe in her hands. She also takes insurance for medical services while a lot of other dermatologists are not contracted with any plans. I have Blue Cross insurance. I can't say enough about her gentle touch. She even applies a numbing cream prior to Botox and IPL treatments. I just can't imagine seeing any other dermatologist!

Very pleased with my visit

I saw another dermatologist 2 years ago who told me that the bump on my lip was nothing. When I saw dr Sommerville, she suspected a skin cancer. I was hesitant to have a biopsy, because I was convinced that it wasn't necessary. Dr Sommerville convinced me and the bump turned out to be a cancer! I am really mad at my previous dermatologist and I will only see dr Sommerville from now on. On top of it, dr Sommerville accepts my insurance, unlike my previous dermatologist. The biopsy was not too painful and dr Sommerville was sweet and professional.

Wonderful office, great promotions!

I received amazing skincare products, a vitamin serum and tinted moisturizer completely free with my Botox treatment! I love the products and will continue to use them. Botox results were great and gave me a brow lift I needed. I will never go to another dermatologist and can't wait for the next promotion.

Great office, very welcoming!

Dr. Sommerville treated me for warts and adult acne. She was exceptionally good at explaining her treatment and did not make me feel rushed like my previous dermatologist. She recommended 2 incredible skin care items, a Vitasmoothe serum and a tinted SPF morning cream. My skin has never looked better and when I went back home for vacation, I got so many complements about my skin. Dr. Sommerville is awsome!
