What Our Patients Say
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
