This is the finest and most professional Dermatology team I have ever received care from. They do everything purely from a spirit of serving you, the patient. Everything is about you. I have been to other Dermatologists who would only look for skin problems above the waist. The team here truly will do a complete scan to make sure there is nothing hiding in your hair (moles, skin conditions, etc) or anywhere else on your body. They provide you with ample protection of your modesty and, unlike other Dermatologists I have used before, they let you know it is a privilege to help you stay healthy and for them to put your mind at ease about anything you have a concern about on your skin. Excellent follow-up time for re-examination of some spots of sun damage I had. All fully resolved and healed up normally. I like the fact that this team is fully operational in the 21st century. By that, I mean they accept Flex Spending Account cards, as well as many other credit cards. Not so with my old Dermatologists. Wonderful! I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes past my scheduled appointment time and on my follow-up, they got me in early! 100% professional, in every respect. They provide care, in the truest sense of the word.

I rate the staff and services a full five stars. My appt. was on time with minimal wait. The front desk staff was friendly. The nurse practitioner I saw was friendly, and well trained. The true test of customer service is how the business reacts to an issue;I had a problem with my bill. When I called I talked to Patrick, he was very helpful and explained my bill to me. I would definitely recommend this office.

The staff is great here. Always kind and accommodating. My last appointment for my yearly exam, I was 15 minutes early and they took me in right away. I was done in less than 30 minutes. Dr. Hayler is very professional and knows her stuff. Dr. Rivera removed a melanoma I had on my neck 3 years ago and you can't even tell it was done. I've already recommended them to some friends.

Dr. Rivera and his staff are very caring and capable as well as friendly and efficient. I have had several surgeries for skin cancers performed successfully by him and have been most happy with the results. Further, I have never been kept waiting longer than 5 minutes past my appointment time.
Tips & Advices
Plastic surgeons can be affiliated with hospitals, but it is not a rule. There are hospitals that have comprehensive plastic surgery wings that some surgeons are affiliated with, but affiliation tends to align more with private plastic surgery clinics than with hospitals.
There are variables on an initial consultation, but expect the doctor to review your medical history and discuss the procedure, , its pros and cons of the procedure, surgical and non-surgical options, risks, cost, insurance coverage, and recovery time. Some provide computer imaging of what you will look like pre and post-surgery.
Many doctors provide free consultations for clients, but it is not required.
A plastic surgeon does not have to be board certified. Board certification sets the minimum competency requirements to treat and diagnose patients.
To become a plastic surgeon, one must earn a medical degree, gain a medical license and enroll in a residency and fellowship programs. A plastic surgeon is highly skilled and trained in surgical procedures, but their training has an emphasis on tissue transfer, body contouring and laser surgery, skills associated with plastic surgery.
