Health insurance coverage has become very complicated. Each insurance company has many different plans. If you do not see your EXACT company and plan listed, please call our office to verify coverage.

His approach is methodical and thorough. He is not a cosmetic dermatologist rather someone who takes his job exceptionallyserious. He inspected all of my skin even between my toes using well lit inspector gadget type magnifying glasses. Highly recommend

Professional, courteous and on time. I’ve visited Dr Milburn before and returned to him because he’s a medical dermatologist,not a Botox salesman or someone offering infinite youth using breakthrough laser treatments - at least, that’s not the impression I got. Thankfully my issue was straight forward but I wouldn’t hesitate to go back or recommend him to some who has more serious stuff going on. First class doctor.

Great to be seen by a dermatologist who practices medicine and NOT a dermatologist who is a part-time cosmetician. Dr. Milburn is not into selling products-he is interested in treating patients

Peter Milburn is the best dermatologist I have seen. I have seen multiple derms for my skin problems for years and none have been able to resolve. He diagnosed my skin condition and had my skin clear in about a week. He really does care about his patients!

Dr. Milburn is extremely thorough, and takes my annual skin cancer scan very seriously--documenting everything and watching for problem areas. After seeing him for about 10 years, he just recently recognized and removed a pre-cancerous mole very early on. I should also menrion that his staff is extrmely helpful with matters of scheduling and insurance.

Front office lady is great and very welcoming. I am sure Dr.Milburn is very knowledgeable about his practice, but I left this appointment wanting to cry. I was conflicted about treatment and just don't think Dr.Milburn was very understanding to my condition. I may return, but honestly, this interaction left me feeling like he just can't be very relatable to his patients.

The office staff was friendly and efficient in getting me in to see the Dr. He was straightforward, informative, and pleasant.
