"After searching for a dermatologist for nearly 7 years, I’ve finally found Pure Dermatology and Dr. Straight! The practice was efficient, online appointment scheduling easy, on time, and the team was great. I scheduled a fully body skin check. Dr. Straight was warm, patient, thorough, and professional. I needed one biopsy and she explained the process. I have a history of melanoma and was glad to find out she is also a board certified Mohs surgeon. The practice does offer cosmetic procedures but didn’t push them. So happy to have found Pure Dermatology and already scheduled my visit for next year."

While I was there as a new patient and just a routine body check, Dr. Straight was very kind and answered my questions thoroughly and professionally.
