What Our Patients Say
Dr. Karlsberg and his staff are very professional. They stay on schedule without extended waiting. He has performed several small surgeries on my face and ears and the results have been exceptional. Both me and my wife are patients and hope he continues to practice for a very long time.Hugh H. 2/19/2020

I love Dr. Karlsberg! I have been going to him for years and his work is excellent. As someone who has on-going problems with skin cancer, i have complete faith in Dr. Karlsberg. Before I found him, I had seen several dermatologists and, while they were competent, they were not pro-active. I can say without a doubt that Dr. Karlsberg is the best. He has caught many pre-cancers before they could grow. He has also skillfully addressed other skin problems I've had. He and his staff are caring, competent, wonderful people and I am so glad I found him!Michelle B. 3/19/2019

Dr Karlsberg always does a thorough job when I have a body check,I was very fortunate not to have any cancer this time , he did burn off a spot on my scalp which was bothering me each time I combed my hair. I am now a happy camper .Ismay C. 5/15/2022
