“After turning 50 it made sense to finally bite the bullet and make an appointment with a dermatologist to address a couple of minor concerns. On the recommendation of a friend, I went to Mindful Dermatology and was seen by Cynthia Trickett, PA. I was incredibly impressed with the care I received. She was very friendly, professional, and seemed incredibly knowledgeable. The skin tag and wart removal were painless and easy. She was also very thorough with the mole check (looking for skin cancer.) In conversation, I also learned that she previously worked with a world-renowned expert on psoriasis, and is highly experienced in that specialty. Overall a really good experience, Will go back in a couple years or sooner if warranted.” -Adam P.
