Patient Testimonials

Here are just a few of the many glowing testimonials we have received from Boston area dermatology patients:

This office has some of the most attentive and caring doctors and staff. They are knowledgeable with excellent bedside manner.

Had MOHS surgery on July 29th with Dr Rohrer. The experience was the best. I would recommend him to anyone. He was very concerned and covered everything I could expect. After I went home I was experiencing some pain from the donor site. Dr Rohrer returned my call and was concerned that I had some pain. Dr Rohrer called in a prescription and it helped immensely. Today I had my stitches removed and was pleasantly surprised at how the area had healed in just a week. Thank you Dr Rohrer for the great job and your caring bedside manor.

Kelly Buchanan came highly recommended to me by many. I’ve been seeing her monthly for the past six months, and she is such a kind, patient, helpful provider who has already changed my skin. She’s extremely knowledgeable and always explains the reason/science behind anything that we’re doing. Most importantly, she actually cares about what you want and is thoughtful with her treatment plan because she is determined to get great results.

Dr. Morton is the reason I’m now a life long client at skincare physicians. She was so amazing and extremely attentive to my needs. She did fillers under my eyes and around the corners of my mouth. I came out of her office looking 20 years younger! As a matter of fact, I’m going in tomorrow to have my lips done. Skincare physicians gets it. Thank you Dr. Morton and team!
– HK

Dr. Sobel has been fabulous to work with. He is always so attentive and helpful to me, despite my very complex skin issues. I am so thankful I found him! I refer anyone with a skin issue to him.
– WC

I got an appointment the same day and the medical advice I needed. I love, love Robin Travers – she is not only a great diagnostician but she is an extremely nice and comforting person. She is definitely a big positive presence for your practice.
– RS

Wow! such excellent care… everyone was exceptionally friendly and I think that Nancy and Erin [SkinCare Physicians nurses] should get a raise:) I am so happy that I can play the piano and it is truly a miracle because I could never play it before! Friendliness, competency, service, sense of humor, environment was top notch from Dr. Morton to the assistants that checked me in. …hmmm, might need to make up an excuse for a reason to go back!
– JM

Dr. Travers is amazing. Been seeing her for years. Would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone seeking a friendly, warm, knowledgeable dermatologist.

Dr. Rohrer is truly amazing! Delivers professional, friendly, and expert care. Incredibly pleased with my visit!

I had such a great experience with Dr. Dover and Sheila at Skincare Physicians recently. Dr. Dover always tailors his recommendations to my needs and allays my concerns with his expertise. I also appreciate that he treats not only his clients but also his staff with care and respect. This was my first time being treated by Sheila, who is a skilled expert in her own right. She took a lot of time with me, making sure that I was physically and emotionally comfortable during my treatment. She is clearly knowledgeable and practiced at her job, leaving me thrilled to know that I will get full benefits from that treatment. Powerful skincare technology is safe and effective if, and only if, it is administered skillfully; I would not trust my skin to anyplace else.

Dr. Arndt is the best. He has been my dermatologist for 20 years. I would not trust my skin to anyone except Ken Arndt. Professional and compassionate. Highly recommend.
– EA, Massachusetts – Posted on Yelp

I have been a patient at Skin Care Physicians for many years. Over the years many surgeries for cancer removal have been done by Dr. Kim and all have been successful. Her technique is flawless, no scarring has ever occurred, and I have never had any re-occurrence of any cancer that has been removed. In my opinion Dr. Kim is the smartest, most talented, and kindest doctor I have ever had the pleasure to know. I highly recommended her.
– NP, Massachusetts

I love this office of professionals! The experience is so positive from booking my appointment with Manny to my office visits with Dr. Kim who is so nice and kind always, but mostly very knowledgeable and professional. The rest of the staff is always pleasant, respectful and friendly. One of the best medical offices around! I wish they were my PCP too!
– CP, Massachusetts

The staff and doctors at SkinCare Physicians are wonderful! I am a patient of Dr Dover and I consider it an honor to be his patient. He is exceptionally skilled, bright, caring, compassionate and professional. He has the unique gift of listening to the needs of his patients, and knows how to create an environment of trust and comfort. The other staff members have consistently proved to be equally professional and knowledgeable in their superior approach to patient care.

– NH, Massachusetts

I have never experienced such warmth and friendliness in a doctor’s office.

Dr. Travers has done an expert job of diagnosing my skin cancers, and Dr. Kim has done a superb job of operating on them. I’m truly grateful to them.

– BR, Massachusetts

I am extremely happy and satisfied with the care provided by Dr. Dover. My condition significantly improved since I started going to his practice, he is very considerate and takes his time to explain things to his patients; the staff are very professional and compassionate. I highly recommend this practice.

– NN, Massachusetts

This is the way a medical practice should run! Outstanding comprehensive skin care. I have seen Drs. Dover and Rohrer and have received excellent care from both of them.

– PN, Massachusetts

Dr. Sikora was fabulous! She took the time to look at my c section incision and gave me “hope” that laser will help decrease the inflammation. She really took the time to talk to me and educate me. Getting rid of the wrinkles was a bonus. She was honestly so lovely and talented!

– KW, Massachusetts

I am so impressed by Dr. Kaminer and his team of nurses. They work together incredibly well, creating a friendly and welcoming, yet very professional environment. I was made to feel totally at ease. The team acts as a well-oiled machine having worked together for many years. They are truly expert at what they do. I can’t imagine getting better care anywhere else.

– NR, Massachusetts

This is truly a great and comprehensive practice for all dermatology and cosmetic treatments. Great service, caring providers and you really feel like you are getting the state of the art in the field. Highly recommend.

– AM

I absolutely loved my experience at SkinCare Physicians!! From the time I walked in to the office I was treated with kindness and professionalism. The front desk staff were very pleasant and made me feel welcomed. I had a very brief wait and went quickly to the exam room with one of the nurses. She was friendly, kind and again very professional!! Dr Sikora came in shortly after the intake and explained exactly how the treatment would go and what I should expect for follow-up. She was wonderful to work with!! Everything went great and I am happy to be a new patient at SkinCare Physicians.

– DCI, Massachusetts

I have been a patient of Michael Kaminer (the longest), Jeffrey Sobel, Robin Travers, and Joyce Pezzulo (esthetician) for many years now and have always/consistently been happy with every aspect of my care. Not only is the high standard of skin care by the doctors obviously important and realized, but all of your staff have over the years always contributed to my overall excellent experience and constant satisfaction with every person and aspect of SCP. I am grateful to you all for your professionalism, good patient care, and gratifying results year after year!

– JR, Massachusetts

Dr. Dover is the BEST! I have been going to him for many years. He is one of THE TOP doctors in his field. I always feel 100% confident of his skills. I have seen some women who have had fillers and injections from other doctors and honestly, some look so unnatural and overdone. Dr Dover is up on the latest techniques and has years of experience. He is masterful! Aside from that, he was the only Doctor that properly diagnosed a skin condition that I have dealt with from time to time for years. Skin Care Physicians is not cheap; however, I feel you get what you pay for. I would be much too apprehensive to go somewhere else just because it was less expensive. His staff is incredibly professional and they are all absolutely wonderful.

Dr. Rohrer did a wonderful job with my facial Mohs surgery ~ both the surgery and his follow-up appointments were easy to arrange, well-managed and offered great patient support. The scar is nearly invisible, a testament to his skill!!

Dr Morton is fabulous! She offered her honest opinion on treatment options, and I felt very comfortable that the treatment was right for me. Her bedside manner is excellent and I’m thankful to have found her practice.

Dr. Sikora is the perfect blend of personal and professional. I feel very comfortable talking with her about issues or concerns and she reassures me with not only her ability to listen but more so her knowledge and skill.

I am very happy with Dr. Sobell. Thanks to him, my psoriasis is on remission. My disease keeps coming back and he keeps prescribing medications that fight back, rotating them, trying new things out and going back to most effective old treatments. Now if only there was something to get rid of it permanently!

No wait, the doctor listened to my concerns and took me seriously and set up a plan to monitor my skins healing progress. I was taken on time, not rushed — overall it was efficient.

– SB, Massachusetts

The desk staff has been very helpful. Dr Morton is treating me for a keratosis. As this was my second visit, she was right on track with her original diagnosis and likely outcomes. She was prompt, efficient and showed concern.

– DD, Massachusetts

Every physician, nurse, PA, and administrative staffer at this practice is terrific. They treat me as an individual and not just another patient.

Dr. Travers is a warm and outstanding physician. So knowledgeable and clear with her explanations, she has a great understanding and empathy for being a patient. A very rare quality! I learn something about my care each visit, and that makes me feel happy when I leave. Thank Dr. Travers!

– SD, Massachusetts

Dear Dr. Arndt, Dr. Rohrer, Peter, the fellow, the nurses, and the front desk friendly lady, my husband and I recently shared an experience at your office: Mohs surgeries a week apart. Each of you made the cutting edge operation as pleasant as possible and the outcome, we hope, as efficacious as possible. While it might not be the romantic package most would sign up for, we are grateful that our skin cancers were detected and excised, giving us hope for many more – perhaps different – romantic experiences together. With thanks.

– J and R, Massachusetts

Kelly and Meredith both promised me that I’d be acne-free within months; I first started seeing both of them in late December. I have seen Meredith three times for medical facials and I am nearly acne-free now! These two listened to my skin concerns, empathized with me about how embarrassing and anxious-making bad skin can be, and have been so attentive about how I’ve been dealing with treatment. I love them both – their work has changed my life and how I feel about myself!

– JS, Massachusetts

My provider was an RN. She was doing laser hair removal. She was terrific, very professional, and efficient.

My experience at Skincare Physicians has been exceptional on three levels: communication, customer service and dermatology care. 1/ The nurses always communicate to me about needing new referrals ahead of my visit. 2/ The staff at the front desk is exceptional. Loretta goes the extra mile by calling the billing department to solve any issue. 3/ Dr. Travers is excellent beyond beliefs. My skin is now cleared, acne free and my confidence restored thanks to her expertise.

– MS, Massachusetts

I was very apprehensive when I made my appointment not knowing what to expect. I was treated with both respect and kindness as soon as I met Dr Dover.His demeanor as well as his obvious knowledge and clinicalh skills put me immediately at ease. He explained the course of treatment clearly and included my opinion in the implementation of the plan. I had a great visit and highly recommend Dr Dover to friends as well as family. I would be remiss if I did not mention the kindness and professionalism of all the clinic staff.

If you want to be impressed by a medical facility, visit here! The doctors, the nurses, the financial team, and the scheduling team is beyond awesome. Not only does the staff cater to your needs, they do it in such a professional and friendly way that it leaves you smiling. I’ve been to many doctor facilities in my day, and I can’t say I’ve ever trusted anyone as much as these people. I promise that you will be in, not good, but great hands at this location. Thank you for helping me!

– Aaron, Massachusetts

I was in to see Dr. Arndt today and I have to tell you how stellar your entire team really is. From the nurses who reassured me to the doctors who patiently answered my many questions (it was my first time with any sort of fillers) and then expertly applied the injections, I was extremely impressed. The results are outstanding — perfectly natural and yet very visible to me. Thanks SkinCare Physicians team!

– Amy, Massachusetts

If Dr. Dover had told me that I would look this phenomenal 6 months ago, I would not have believed it. I was dealing with phytophotodermatitis from weed whacking wild parsnip. I am experiencing a miracle! Dr. Dover’s talented hands are a given. After all, he has treated me for 20 years now. What was so amazing about my last two appointments was the manner in which Peter and Vianka fit me in at the spur of the moment. Both were so polite, kind and reassuring! Not your average response by any means.

– Linda, Vermont

Dr. Kane is amazing. I’ve been to several dermatologists in various states prior to moving to Massachusetts, and Dr. Kane is one of the few who genuinely listen to my concerns and create a plan that is aggressive enough to keep me content in my battle against acne. I’m so happy I stumbled upon SkinCare Physicians when I moved to Boston — it’s been a great experience!

– Grace, Massachusetts

I think that this is by far the best practice in all of Boston, and perhaps the country and I am very fortunate to be able to be a patient here. Thank you for the excellent service and expertise!

When I was home in Boston a few months ago, Dr. Sobell prescribed a medication to treat my Melasma. I’ve been suffering with these markings since 2006, and had resigned myself to having to wear a lot of make up to cover it all up at our wedding, coming up in February. Because I can’t be there for a follow up appointment, I wanted to be sure to send these photos. Just like Dr. Sobell effectively cured my hormonal acne nearly 10 years ago, he’s done it again! I’d be hugging him in person if I could. Even the cosmetic end of what you all do makes such a difference, especially for women. Thank you so much for nearly a decade of exceptional dermatological care. I wouldn’t see anyone else–even if I have to fly 3,000 miles for my appointments with Dr. Sobell.

Seeing Dr. Kim, is like visiting a good friend who happens to be a great doctor. She is always so friendly and caring. I first met Dr. Kim when I had to have basal cancer removed from my nose in a MOHS procedure. Being 38 years old and picturing the worst, this was terrifying but she did such a great job and with follow up lasers, you can hardly tell. I now go to her for skin checks and all my skin care needs. Dr. Kim is phenomenal and I highly recommend her!

– MC, Massachusetts

Dr. Robinson was excellent, I was so impressed with her. I felt like she truly listened to me, cared about me and she made me feel really comfortable. She was extremely professional, knowledgable and very friendly. I also really appreciated that she took time with me- I never felt rushed at all. I’m thrilled I found her! I was also really impressed with the office staff- they were so helpful and friendly!

– CV, Massachusetts

Dr. Arndt, I’d like to express my extreme appreciation for a wonderful first visit with your practice this morning. I met with Dr. Robinson for a skin-tag removal and had an absolutely pleasant experience the minute I walked into the office. Your staff was truly warm and professional and I’m truly thankful for that!

– SD, Massachusetts

Dear Dr. Travers: I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding treatment I received from you and your staff for my case of alopecia. When the condition first developed, I was devastated… Due to your care and recommendations, the alopecia is gone, my hair has grown in fully, and I’ve been off the cyclosporine for a couple of months. Words cannot express my gratitude.

– RP, Massachusetts

I am thrilled with the results Dr. Kaminer achieved with Restylane to fill in the “marionette lines” around my mouth on my recent visit. Dr. Kaminer’s skill is without equal! Thanks to Dr. Kaminer I look years younger and no longer have that very unattractive downturned mouth look. In addition, Dr. Kaminer is extremely caring and personable. Thank you SkinCare Physicians!

– JL, Cape Cod

Dr. Sobell said to me “Let me heal your skin” and he did! I have been outbreak-free since my last appointment (2 months). This is the first time in years that my skin has been clear. Thanks to the Doctors and Staff at SCP.

– BD, New Bedford, MA

Excellent Greetings – Personal phone calls for reminders and listening professionals plus my medical problem is resolved after 40 years.

– RF, Brockton, MA

I really enjoy and appreciate the doctors and Dr. Kim’s kindness. She has helped me out so much. I would recommend this office any day.

– MC, Canton, MA

You guys are the best. I have been a patient at SCP for 4 years. All of the physicians are professional and truly take the extra effort to care about my health. The office staff is second to none. Daniel and his team are always professional and courteous. The physicians and staff at SCP are incredible. I always feel that the practice cares about my health and the staff always “go the extra mile” to make me well. Daniel always makes sure that my appointments fit into my hectic schedule. The physicians and PA’s are professional and unlike any other office I have seen in Metro Boston. I highly recommend SCP to anyone who is looking for dermatologic care. Thank you so much for having me as a patient.

– BZ

SkinCare Physicians make it easy to be keen on them.

I have been a client for several years and have always enjoyed a positive experience and result. I began my relationship with Dr. Kaminer whom I find to be exceptionally skilled and very caring. Thanks to him I look and feel incredible!

I recently began a series of skin care treatments in their aesthetics department. I was skeptical because in the past when seeking skin care, I always felt the aesthetician was focused more on how many products she could sell me. Not at SCP aesthetics department. I have built a wonderful and nurturing relationship with “Eileen”- aesthetician extraordinaire! She is not only an expert and very professional (I would expect no less at SCP), she truly loves what she does and boy does it show! I love the fact that she lets me try a sample of products before I purchase and actually discusses the result. She listens to me and really hears me, she asks lots of questions to clarify and all her recommendations have been a success for me.

Love them all!

– KW

Dr. Phillips is a SUPERB physician! She kept us informed in a timely manner and follow-up was

I am always confident when coming to SCP because of the doctors’ and staffs’ knowledge of cutting edge technology, willingness to offer suggestions for skin improvement, and great care and concern for each patient.

– MZ, Bedford, NH

Definitely rejuvenating, revitalizing, and uplifting! Professional and support staff are experts in their fields, warm, caring, and interested in you as an individual. You are more than just a patient. You’re a friend. What a great feeling.

– JB, Wilmington, North Carolina

The staff at SCP is highly professional and informative. I like to think of them as my SkinCare consultants.

– AW, Natick, MA

I have been coming to SCP for years and I feel completely satisfied with the professionals that work there. Kelly Collins is a doctor I have been seeing lately and she is not only extremely professional but a person I feel extremely comfortable talking about my skin issues with. I love SCP and am extremely thankful they exist!

– DN, Boston, MA

The professionalism and compassion of this office is exceptional. They respect and listen to me. Dr. Travers puts me at ease and is reassuring. I believe my skin care is in capable hands @ SCP

– MH, Marblehead, MA

The staff is always pleasant and takes good care of the clients. Dr. Sobell is always upbeat and encouraging.

– PT, Blackstone, MA

Dr. Kim takes such good care of me. I owe the significant improvements in my skin to her! She always thoroughly answers my questions and explains treatment options. I would (and have) highly recommended Dr. Kim to all of my friends!

– JB, Roslindale, MA

Dr. Kaminer is a genius. My ears are perfect like brand new. Thanks so much.

– PA, Cambridge, MA

Dr. Michael Kaminer is superb! He explains everything, takes his time with you, addresses your questions thoroughly and his results are amazing, natural, beautiful, and long lasting.

– Anonymous, Newton, MA

It was an uplifting experience to visit a physicians group that was not only efficient and caring, but “sparkled” which enhanced my comfort zone both personally and medically.

– BS, Chestnut Hill, MA

Dr. Arndt is superb-extremely well qualified and a nice person.
