Dr Hoyer was wonderful. I immediately felt comfortable with her. She was easy to talk to and very thorough in her questioning and especially her explanations of the condition and treatment. I felt good about her diagnosis. she was also right with the outcome of it as far as the meds kicking in.

This is the third location I have traveled to in order to have Dr Hoyer as my dermatologist. Some dermatologists I have seen in the past move through the visit so quickly there is very little chance for any real interaction. They are almost in and out of the door in a heartbeat. Dr Hoyer has always made me feel like she was attuned to me and my concerns.

Dr Hoyer is so caring and professional. She always asks about my kids and makes me feel comfortable. I love the fact she shares not only the Dr terminology regarding my skin issues, but also breaks in down so I understand. Having had precancerous spots removed, Dr Hoyer reminds me of the importance on caring for my skin with types of clothes and sunscreen. For upcoming biopsy's she errs on the side of caution due to my history. I trust her with my skin and what could be my life.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr.Hoyer. I trust and appreciate her knowledge regarding my skin care. Even though I know she is busy, as most doctors, I never feel rushed when she is with me. She always asks about my family and remembers my grandchildren. I find that so warm and caring for the entire person. She listens to my concerns regarding my visit and tells me her thoughts and options regarding treatment. Together we make a choice. I always feel part of the decision but trust her to always do what is best for my health. if anyone I know ever needs a dermatologist, I am quick to pass along Dr. Hoyer's name and location.

It was my first time seeing Dr Hoyer. She excels at explaining what she is thinking, and at recommending a treatment option, while letting you know what the other options are. Very friendly and non-arrogant. Talks fast for time-efficiency, but not too fast to follow. Excellent.
