What I had originally thought to be a wart on my forearm turned out to be a Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Yes, I am fair skinned, yes I am a senior but have not been in the sun in 35 years! I have been an annual patient of Mary Hylton in Hudson and she did this diagnosis after an scrape. She is very efficient and skilled and referred me to Dr Garcia as I was in no mood to wait. Met him at the Landerbook (Mayfield Heights) office. Really high standards at all Apex offices. Easy check in, and efficient, they had me right there in the computer. Dr Garcia, very knowledgeable, most gentle and super fast with the removal and subsequent use of the MOHS method of removal. I was in and out in one hour with a huge relief that he "got it all" no more cancer in the first pass. His nurse was also a great asset with post op information and upbeat persona. I highly recommend APEX. Don't wait and try and self treat.

Dr. Karpinski was able to get me in same day. She made me feel welcomed and did not rush the appointment. Her staff was very friendly and informative. I will be recommending Apex skin to my family and friends thanks to the compassion shown during my first visit. Thank you.

Dr. Karpinski made me feel very welcomed when she came into the room. I explained why I was there and she took her time looking me over and explained what everything was. She ended up doing a procedure and gave me care instructions to take home. I will be back!

I’ve had trouble with my nails for 2 yrs I’ve been to other dermatologist some help but nothing like Dr Moore. Amazing Dr he is. I’m so grateful for him and his practice . I was feeling helpless with my condition with my nails . Dr Moore & his staff took their time with me made me feeling comfortable with my issue. Most important I’m seeing huge results. I highly recommend Dr Moore he will be the only dermatologist I go to for now on. Thanks Dr

I followed Betsy from her former place of employment to Apex because I did not wish to trust anyone else with my skin. She is not only the sweetest person, but the best clinician. My skin has never looked better! Apex, you are fortunate to have Betsy on your staff.

I attended the cosmetic event today at the Concord office and it was an awesome experience! From the moment I walked in, the front staff were so welcoming and friendly. The medical staff took me back to a room right away and made sure I was comfortable. Gail came in and explained everything to me and made me feel at ease. During the procedure Amanda did an amazing job of keeping me calm. I absolutely love my final results! Gail is so talented and I would highly recommend her and Apex Dermatology to all of my friends and family! Thank you to the entire team at Apex Derm Concord!!! I can’t wait to come back.

I am in my forties and recently took advantage of an offer to receive a FREE Skin Cancer screening with Apex at their Medina location. The staff was nice and very professional. The exam itself went fairly quick and was painless, but to my dismay and surprise the woman who was looking me over did find two areas/spots of concern. I had to make a 2nd appointment to go back to Apex to have one of the dermatologists look at these spots and decide whether further action was needed. During that appointment I met with Dr. Karpinski and she validated that these two spots should at least be looked at further. I\'m not going to lie, I was a little nervous, but she was super nice and also straight forward, which I appreciated. She took two biopsies and told me they would have the results and then call me within 14 days or sooner. The two shots to numb the two areas did sting briefly, but I literally didn\'t feel any pain when she took the skin tissue for biopsy. They called me 6 days later with the results! Now I don\'t go go back for another six months, then probably down to one screening per year. To anyone reading this, I recommend you schedule a skin cancer screening/examination and I highly recommend Apex Skin!! The get 5 out of 5 stars in my book. Thank you Dr. Karpinski and staff!

Katie was very thorough and instantly put my mind at ease. I hadn’t been to a dermatologist in 30 years. Thankfully, no cancers! Thank you Concord Apex Skin for providing this free exam!

Checkin was fast, and Aziza was fantastic! I was super nervous and she made me feel calm and everything was done so quickly! So excited to have found such a great dermatologist in my area.

I have been completely satisfied with Dr. Wahby and the staff at this office and look forward to going back.

My experience at Apex Skin in Mayfield Heights has been exceptional from my first consultation with Dr. Moore to my recent treatment. The staff is very knowledgeable, accommodating and make you feel welcome and relaxed. I would highly recommend Apex Skin to family and friends.

From the moment I walked in I had a great experience. The ladies at the front desk, especially Erin, were so helpful in helping me understand how the insurance works. My daughter saw Katie and she was so patient and understanding of my daughters fears. Everyone there is so great, I highly recommend their services.

My daughters and I have been going to Apex Dermatology Hudson for almost 3 years and I can't say enough about their new aesthetician, Dianne Goodbar!! To be honest, I was nervous about switching when my previous aesthetician was relocated to one of the other Apex locations, but from the moment she walked into the room at my first appointment, I was instantly put at ease. I found out very quickly that Dianne is extremely knowledgeable, warm and kind. She has a way of making me and my daughter feel comfortable and beautiful in our own skin. She's honest about what she thinks my skin needs, but I have never once felt pushed into buying unnecessary products or treatments. You can tell that she genuinely cares about her patients and truly enjoys her work. I would recommend her to any one of my friends or family members. My skin has never looked better!! Thank you Dianne!
Kimberly J. Patient Apex Dermatology Hudson February 27, 2019
A couple of weeks ago I noticed a small spot on my face that concerned me as I had a basal cell removed about 10 years ago. I called the dermatologist I used to go to and they couldn't get me in until after the first of the year! I took a chance and called Apex in Concord. They were able to see me the same day! Katie examined the spot and took a biopsy. Unfortunately it was basal cell so I was scheduled for the Mohs surgery. The entire team at Apex was great! From making the appointment to the procedure they took great care of me. The surgery went well and the incision is healing nicely. Amber called me the next day to make sure everything was ok. I already have another appointment to have a whole body spot check!
Marybeth C. Apex Dermatology Concord December 24, 2018
I have been seeing Dr. Moore for just over a year. I came to Apex Dermatology for severe acne that came out of nowhere. He was the first doctor to actually listened to me about my condition and helped me overcome the acne and return my skin to normal. I came in for a follow-up appointment a few months after my first visit and I pointed out a spot on my neck that I thought may be skin cancer. It turned out to be melanoma in the very early stages. I am grateful that he listens to me and respects my ability to be my own health care advocate.
Brianna A. Patient Brian Moore, MD, FAAD August 22, 2018
I have been going to Apex for about 2 and a half years, both the Concord and the Mayfield office. I have had about 12 appointments and am blown away by the timeliness and efficiency of the office. They are always on time- amazing! Yet, I never feel rushed when I'm with my doctor. The level of care is top notch. You guys are amazing. Thank you!
Rebecca F. Patient Apex Dermatology Concord June 28, 2018
After years of searching for a solution for my sons skin rash Dr.Aldrich was able to diagnosed him and provide medication to heal . Within 24 hours of him applying the medicine; it cleared up! Thank you and your assistant for being so fabulous. And being so patient as I rambled about our journey.
I can't say enough about the team for Apex Dermatology...give them a call they will listen , and do whatever they can to make you comfortable.
Keep Rocking it Apex Hudson!!!!
Connor W. Patient Apex Dermatology Hudson June 27, 2018
On May 15th, 2018 I had a skin check with my nurse practitioner Katie Novotny. She suspected I had basal cell carcinoma in the conchal bowl in my right ear. As a teenager I was out in the sun a lot as I caddied at Lakewood Country Club in Westlake to earn money to pay for my tuition at St. Ignatius High School. Who knew years later all that sun exposure would evolve in to bcc in my right ear. No one ever thinks of putting sun screen inside their ears. Katie took a biopsy and it was revealed that I did indeed have bcc. I was then scheduled for Mohs surgery on Wednesday June 6th, 2018. Katie is a great nurse practitioner. I've been a patient of hers for over eight years. She is very kind and compassionate and is very responsive to any skin cancer concerns I may have, I highly recommend Katie. She's the best dermatology CNP in Lake County as far as I am concerned.
Tim H. Patient Apex Dermatology Concord June 27, 2018
The Hudson team is simply amazing!!! I started coming to Apex to get my skin checked, but have since returned several times for the other services they offer. What keeps me coming back is not only the quality of services but the people! They are kind, caring, so knowledgeable, and just a joy to be around. I cannot speak highly enough of them and how well they take care of their patients. Every time I go to Apex Hudson, I leave with a smile on my face because they are so uplifting, treat me like family, and they make me feel beautiful! Always looking forward to the next time I can go back!
Sariya Apex Dermatology Hudson June 18, 2018
I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you. I came in to see you a few months ago with a nasty rash on my legs. I wanted to get them cleared up before I went on vacation. My legs have never looked or felt better. The rash is completely gone on the front of my legs. Too often people will only reach out with negative comments but I wanted to reach out with some positive feedback. Thanks again and my legs are vacation ready!!!

I'd like to thank Dr. Garcia, Dr. Aldrich and staff for taking such great care of me. Everyone is very comforting which goes a long way when you're anxious about having your face cut into lol! I have been sharing my experience with friends and am recommending Apex Derm to everyone. I included a link to Apex's website on a Fb post and did a little bragging on Dr Garcia 🙂 Please let him know that I do appreciate his cleaver humor as I now have my initial studded into my forehead haha!
Thank you all so much! Xo Lori N.
Lori N. Apex Dermatology January 17, 2018
In August of 2013, Dr. Garcia removed skin cancer from my face. He had to actually make the incision longer so that it wouldn't pucker. I was so scared I was going to have a terrible scar because incision and stitches were over an inch long. But in just 5 months the scar was completely un-noticeable. Great job!
Stacey N. Jorge Garcia-Zuazaga, MD, FAAD August 1, 2017
Everyone at Apex Dermatology has been so wonderful to deal with. I was a bit nervous to go through my procedure, but they made me feel relaxed and completely confident that I was in great hands. Would highly recommend them to my family and friends.
