Dr Shofner makes having skin tags burned off much more fun! He's awesome. Highly recommend this office if you want someone who actually talk to you as a human being and listens to your concerns, treats you with respect and is highly qualified as a bonus.

Dr. Shofner is friendly, knowledgeable, courteous and very patient-focused. I was seen right away on a SATURDAY which was impressive and it didn't take me long to get an appointment. All that plus the option to book online puts Dr. Shofner and his office on the top of my list for dermatologists.

I was a few minutes early, so the waiting was mostly my fault. I was ushered in just about exactly on the time of my appointment. Dr. Shofner is friendly and warm and listens when I speak. His explanations were clear, in readily understandable terms. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to others looking for a dermatologist.

Dr Shofner saw me within 10 mins of my scheduled appt, which for most MDs is unheard of. I also felt like he took a good amount of time explaining things to me as well as going over the medicine he prescribed. All in all, a very impressive first appt. I will see him again and recommend as well!

Dr. Shofner is very friendly and instantly put me at ease. He was able to hold an engaging conversation while performing a small procedure which was comforting to me as it was over before I even realized he began. If I have to go to a dermatologist again, he'd be my first choice.

I was only in there for a routine screening for unusual growths, but just in the short interaction I had with Dr. Shofner, he gave the impression of being highly competent, he explained things in a manner I could easily understand, and he told me things about various kinds of moles and skin discolorations that I had not heard from other dermatologists that will help me in the future to know whether a particular blemish is something I should have checked out or not. Excellent bedside manner. Very easy to talk to.

Dr Shofner was very professional and pleasantly personable, especially with my 15mo old daughter. It was my second visit with him and he remembered me from my first visit 6mo ago allowing the visit to be straight forward and to the point. He knew exactly what I wanted and asked the appropriate questions. I was on my way home in 25min total. Very satisfied...

Dr. Shofner was wonderful. Made me totally comfortable and confident about concerns I had about my skin. He was professional but at the same time very down-to-earth in conversation. He spent time carefully checking over things I was concerned about and did a thorough examination. I highly recommend him.

I thought Joshua Shofner was very friendly and patient. He made sure to answer all of my questions. I wish I knew before hand that a skin screening was for skin cancer as I had some other questions not pertaining to a skin screening that I did not get the opportunity to answer.

Easily the best dermatologist I've ever seen, and I've seen at least half a dozen in the Boston area alone over the years. He's intelligent, kind, and up to date with modern treatments. I refuse to go to anyone else.

Very personable and extremely professional. He saw me right away and offered multiple treatment options and reassured my doubts on antibiotic side effects. I've honestly never felt more comfortable with a doctor before, it was the first time I have never felt awkward. I am going to recommend him anyone in the area who is in need of a Dermatologist.

Dr. Shofner was extremely thorough in addressing all of my questions and concerns. He delivers medical information in a way that is understandable and retainable and when he stated the actual medical term for my diagnosis he voluntarily wrote it down on a piece of paper so I could take it home. While it may sound like a small gesture, it is an act I rarely experience at the doctors... and really appreciated.

Dr. Shofner was excellent. Wait was a bit longer than ideal. If I could change one thing about their office, it would be to add guest WiFi--the office is in a dead zone for cell coverage. Having access to email, etc. would have helped with the wait.
