Dundee Dermatology Testimonial
Dr. Getz is the best Dr. I have ever been to!
“He is super knowledgeable and kind and has really already helped me so much with psoriatic arthritis. The whole office is really excellent and are very professional. Thank you so much for helping me get out of pain and my skin improvement.”
Nothing negative to say at all!
I moved to the area and was referred to Dr. Getz by a friend. I have nothing negative to say at all. I expected to be looked at and dismissed in five minutes because typically, that’s how dermatology appointments are often handled. This was not the case here. I had a full body scan and was very happy with the amount of time Dr. Getz took to explain things to me. He did not rush me, and he was very thorough. His assistant was professional and friendly. I did not wait long and thought everyone in the office was very professional.
A really outstanding place.
I enjoy multiple solutions and treatments from this location and have always received top-notch quality. If you're looking for a place with state of the art equipment and experience, this place is for you.
I highly recommend Dr. Getz and the entire staff at Dundee Dermatology!
Dr. Getz has helped me immensely. He is very professional, yet I always feel that he listens to my feedback and treats me with compassion. Also, he is one of the tiny handful of research dermatologist in the entire Chicago area, and stays on top of all the most current research in the field. And I've always felt welcomed and respected by every staff member I've interacted with. Definitely 5 Stars!
I have been going to Dundee Dermatology for well over a decade now.
Every single staff member has always treated me respectfully and professionally. The doctors are extremely experienced and knowledgeable. Before going to Dundee Dermatology I thought my condition was going to debilitate me for the rest of my life. As far as I'm concerned, they gave me my life back!
