Don't Just Take Our Word For It...
Dr. Hitchins and staff are warm and treat patients with care and respect. My entire family of 5 see Dr Hitchins. We’ve been treated for everything from skin cancer to severe teenage acne. I have been a very happy patient for 12 years.
The most organized medical office I have ever seen. Not just the operations but also the facility layout. Check in from your car via a text and when they are ready, you get a text to come in. Dr. Hitchins is very efficient in her exam, but also takes the time to explain what she finds and answer any questions you may have.
This was my first visit and I have to say the entire team was amazing. I’ve seen a lot of dermatologist and doctors in general and this by far was one of the best experiences ever! They were friendly, down to earth, “real” people that made you feel like you were at a friends house, and care about your well being. I highly recommend them and want to say THANK YOU for a great experience.
Very good experience for several issues with Dr. Hitchins. Very thankful for her expertise and friendliness. My husband and I both go to her and highly recommend her.
