Verified Patient Reviews
Great care! I had to wait a short time which they apologized for. They addressed my concerns quickly and treated me. Dr. Edhegard was very good at answering my questions and explaining the treatment.
She and the staff were very polite and answered all my questions.
Another wonderful appointment with Dr. Edhegard. She's the best!
Very pleasant experience.
Dr. Edhegard has treated both of my children and me. She has a wonderful bedside manner, is very realistic about diagnosis and treatment, and doesn’t push treatments that have a low likelihood of being effective. My three year old had such a great time at her appointment today that she said that she wants to “be a doctor that looks at kid’s bumpies.” High praise.
Dr. Edhegard was incredibly friendly and honest about the procedures I was interested in. She did an in office procedure quickly and painlessly, explaining what she was doing along the way, and booked me a follow up appointment within the week for a more complicated surgical procedure. I will be seeing her again and highly recommend her.
Great experience, very positive and friendly staff. Will definitely be back. A+++
She was really great highly recommend.
Dr. Edhegard was excellent! She was very friendly, and willing to answer any and all questions. She looked at any areas where I had concerns, and was able to explain a few small marks on my skin (things that I hadn’t even noticed!). I would highly recommend her! The rest of staff was all extremely friendly as well.
I'm really impressed with this practice. From the front desk staff, the billing staff, to the doctor and the physician's assistant, the whole experience was efficient, professional, and friendly. Dr. Edhegard has a pleasant, competent manner, listening actively, and asking good questions. She went over a treatment plan, then wrote it down. Her PA also took notes. There was no 'upselling' of products or procedures, which seems common at other dermatology practices. I've found my dermatologist!
She is very professional and willing to work with me to try and resolve my skin issue
Doctor was fantastic!
Very thorough and candid.
Dr. Edhegard was very personable and professional. The office was quick and efficient. I was seen right at my appointment time and was out the door within 30 minutes, after a full body scan, two mole removals, and a steroid injection.
Dr. Edhegard is great! I am a new patient, and she listened to all of my symptoms and concerns. Wait time was short, and she is very pleasant and makes you at ease. I will continue to come back!

Waste of time, don't plan to go back ever.

Professional, knowledgeable, friendly.
Dr. Edhegard was very kind and thorough during my annual screening. She really took her time with me and explained exactly what she was doing before and during the procedure. I look forward to my next visit in 6 months.
She is awesome. She is very knowledgeable of her field of expertise. She spent ample time with me to discuss her diagnosis and solutions in detail. My first visit with Dr. Edhegard was very satisfactory.
Everyone, including the doctor, took the time to listen to what I had to say and answer questions. I did not feel rushed or patronized at all. Also, no one pushed cosmetic procedures or products on me. Great experience.
I had two separate appointments with Dr. Edhegard. The wait time was superfast both times at less than five minutes. The Doctor explained everything and removed some things from my skin immediately--all covered by insurance. The second time the treatment was considered cosmetic, so I paid out of pocket, but well worth every penny. The Doctor was very personable and the staff efficient. I got my lab results quickly. I would not hesitate to go back to her or recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
Very impressed. She was very nice and actually took her time with me unlike most of the doctors I've seen in the northern Virginia area.
She was extra cool.
This was an initial appointment and she was very thorough and personable. I would recommend her to my friends and family.

Very personable. Answered all of my questions and made me feel totally comfortable. So glad I found her!
She was very professional and informative. She gave me good options for a few things that I wanted to have done and gave me her opinion on them. Will definitely come back.
Very nice office, free parking, minimal wait time. They removed a mole for me even though that was not the main reason for my appointment. Very grateful I didn't have to come back on a different day for it! The only not so great part was when the doctor tried to tell me that my mom didn't have melanoma (she died 5 years ago from it in AZ). Then when I told her more of the history concerning her treatment she changed her tune and said "oh then I guess you were right, it was melanoma". Not bad in my opinion (ie not worth arguing with her over or finding a new doctor), but I'm pretty sure most patients would be quite upset in that same situation.
Dr. Edgegard was very personable and was enjoyable to talk with during my exam. She made sure I didn't have any questions before I left my appointment and was very thorough during the exam. Highly recommend her!

Thought she was great. Went there to discuss teenager's acne, happy with the way she handled what can be a very touchy subject.
Came in for a quick check up and will be happy to return. I was seen quickly and all the staff and doctor were friendly and helpful.
