What our patients are saying...

We are committed to providing outstanding and comprehensive skin care. Patient satisfaction is very important to us. 

“All that I can say is that Dr. Kimberly Edwards is one of the nicest Doctors I have ever been to. I get nervous going to the “skin Dr.” as I had a bad experience with our Dr. back in New Jersey. We recently moved here to North Carolina and my better half made my appointment at Dermatology Associates. Dr. Edwards and her people made my immediately feel comfortable and relaxed. When they asked me questions and had a personal conversation I felt like they really cared ! My checkup was thorough and everything was explained to me in a gentle, respectful, professional personal way. I am so grateful that I have someone I trust and like a lot for this part of my health care. I am a retired former business owner and I really felt that I had to write this for anyone who may feel the way I did. When I go back to see Dr. Edwards I will certainly be more relaxed as there were no surprises, and again everything was explained so calmly. A true professional!!! Thank you!!!”

“Excellent appointment with Dr. Connett. I highly recommend this doctor. She listened and help me with all my concerns. Staff is also very friendly and helpful.”

Happy D

“Love this dermatology office! (I left my last dermatologist due to the length of time I wasted in the waiting room ~ every time! The last time was the last straw, when I was left naked, with my paper blanket, in the exam room, for 2 hours before I saw the doctor for all of 5 minutes)! At Derm Assoc., both Dr. Hardy and Dr. Escaravage takes the time to talk & ask questions. The best part ~ I just left with hot coffee, which I fixed in the waiting room when I arrived! They are always quick to get you in & out, efficient and very helpful.”


“Dr Kaufman and his assistant Ashley are excellent: compassionate, helpful, and very good at suggesting new treatments for my skin issues. I couldn’t be more pleased.”
