Dr.Garretson is an amazing physician! She is very thorough as she addresses your skin... whether you have a specific skin problem or are there for a general full body mole check. (She discovered my husband's scalp melanoma which needed surgery and was not easily detected.) She is not only efficient and great at detecting possible problems, but, in addition addition, she has a wonderful way with her patients. She is lovely ?üòç to talk with, supportive, encouraging, listens to your concerns, and takes time with you. We feel lucky to have her!
