Dr. Annelise Dawson saw me right away when I showed up for my appointment, was very thorough and courteous, answered all of my questions, and made recommendations for a few skin issues I was dealing with. She did an in-office procedureon the spot, avoiding the need to make a return appointment. She was very nice and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a good dermatologist.

I've been to Dr. Dawson twice and have had a great experience both times. She's very knowledgable and isn't quick to prescribe where it's unnecessary. Both times, she or her staff followed up with me to make sure everything worked ourproperly or to provide additional guidance. Will definitely be back if necessary!

She's a really attractive, attentive, and really gentle dermatologist with good, clear communication skills and a personable human being. She did an in-house surgery on a cyst for me that was quick and painless. She also quickly removed a mole.She checked in with me every other second during the procedures so as to prevent or avoid any pain or discomfort for me, and she accomplished her goal. Her instructions for self-care were clear and easy to understand. I felt very well taken care of while in her hands, and since I have a followup visit to remove stitches in a couple of weeks, I look forward to my next visit with her. She's excellent!

I had an exceptionally positive experience at my first appointment with Dr. Dawson. I liked the method used to make my appointment. Everything was done on-line using a user friendly website. I was taken immediately at the time of my appointment.When I met the Dr. she was very clear about my choices to take care of my problem. Her examination was thorough and next steps were clear. This was the most positive dermatology appointment I've had in years. I recommend Dr. Dawson with no hesitation. Roberta R.
