I researched other recommended dermatologists but couldn’t get an appointment right away so began looking for someone else. Dr. Basko’s name popped up! New practice, but highly rated. Got an appointment right away & was able to fill out allnew patient information forms at home/online. My experience during the appointment was great! Staff was very professional & kind. Dr. Basko took her time with me, explained everything, is kind, professional, knowledgeable. Would highly recommend her practice to anyone looking for a dermatologist!

She is great. Honestly you aren't going to a Dermatologist for something that isn't a problem or at least you are concerned about. She identified my condition(s) right away and made sure I was at ease. Her staff are fantastic as well.

She was very pleasant and seemed knowledgeable regarding my issue. Performed a procedure quickly, explaining everything she was doing. I was quite anxious but she took hern time and ensured I was OK before I left. I did encounter some problemslater in the day with extreme nausea and bleeding at the biopsy site, but called the office at 6:30 pm and was advised by Wendy as to how to handle. Overall, very pleased with my experience at Derick Dermatology

Dermatology can be a scary thing as you age. Having a suspicious mole for years, I finally took the steps to get it checked out. Doctor Juliana Basko-Plluska and her nurse Wendy put me at ease immediately. I highly recommend thispractice for those who have been putting off a check up with a Dermatologist.
