    The Staff and Doctors are friendly and my visit was quick, and felt as if I’d been a long time patient.

    We've been patients for years (my wife for 25 years), and we've always had great experiences here. They're doing a great job with their new office procedures due to COVID, and the appointment procedures are very efficient. We appreciate the precautions being taken.

    Love Dr. Becknell, But we was having some small talk and this blonde nurse told me I had to leave now, We was talking and she told me I had to leave now, Me and Doc talk about my skin conditions and also he farms , I am too, then we started about guns because he shoots completion, and we're both gun lovers , she must not be because we walk out of the room still talking and she tells me 3 times to go , but love Dr. Becknell , he"s the greatest

    I arrived at my appointment and was checked in (I had used the on line sign in) and was very effiently for temperature 🌡️ and taken to an exam room. The exam was thorough and my questions were answered. The entire process was efficient and I never felt endangered by the covid-19 virus. A well handled appointment during difficult days.

    I have to say I don't understand the recent negative review targeting Dr. Repass at DAK. She has been my dermatologist for several years and I have found her to be thorough, professional, efficient and pleasant to work with.

    I took my wife for her first treatment of Botox at DAK. She has been very hesitant of using this product but after a consultation with her doctor she felt confident in having the treatment. We scheduled her appointment and were greeted the day of appointment at the door by the cosmetic specialist. We were offered a seat in the waiting room and did not have to wait long. At many doctor’s offices the wait can be very long. The procedure was explained and then applied very comfortably. My wife felt very safe the whole time. The care was excellent! The only downside to the whole event was having to schedule about 3 weeks ahead of time. But I guess this says many other people trust them for their service!

    March 19, 2018 - First time patient of Detamatology Associates of Kentucky (Lexington Location).
    Very impressed with the warm welcome by staff members, the very clean and attractive office, and promptness of seeing me at the time of my appointment. They didn’t keep me waiting very long once taken back to the patient/exam room.
    My appointment was with PA Braye Rueff and I could not be more pleased with how easy she was to talk with and discuss my concerns. She and her assistants were extremely through and quickly took care of a couple of skin problems I was concerned about.
    If you want expert advise and treatment I highly recommend PA Braye Rueff and Detmatology Associates.

    The staff was really friendly. The day I visited was really busy and they were running behind. Multiple people apologized to me for the delay which I am not used to at a medical facility. The doctor I saw was very friendly and social. I would recommend this facility over my local dermatologist.

    Excellent care. Felt at ease with Stacy Smallwood and she did an excellent job removing a suspicious place on my nose and examined another place of concern.
    Will definitely go back.

    Stacey Smallwood, NP, is one of the best providers ever. She took time to explain the details of both my diagnoses and my treatments—which no other clinician has ever done. She is congenial, understanding, and outstanding. Good medicine and good people—that's Stacey. I highly recommend DAK.

    I have to say everyone was very friendly and nice. Dr. Massa and her staff were wonderful. Erica has a great steady hand and that is important for removing skin tags. Great set up and you feel very safe especially in these trying times.

    This is the most efficiently run office. Waiting time is minimal and Dr. Masa is a wonderful dermatologist. I have been to other dermatologist but once I found her I haven’t gone to anyone else and I have recommended her to friends and family who also really like her!

    I scheduled a appointment with Dr. Massa. The online check in very easy. Upon arriving, check in was very efficient, as was making my online payment. Dr. Massa was very thorough during my skin check and made me feel very comfortable. She addressed all issues in a very effective manner. Even though the office does not accept my insurance, I’ll never see anyone else!

    My young son had a condition that remained a mystery to numerous doctors for the past 3 years. At our very first appointment Stacey had more than 5 different doctors filter in to take a look and give their opinion and we were able to walk away with a diagnosis and treatment plan, finally! I am so incredibly thankful to the team and to a family friend who recommended that we visit this group. Thank you so much Stacey!

    First visit to DAK on Fountain Court. The staff was courteous, friendly, patient, and very efficient. I had a short wait to see ARNP Stacy Smallwood and I am a fan forever. She made me feel so comfortable, explained everything she was going to do , took time to answer all my questions and concerns....
    I felt like I was in very capable hands. She had Dr. Massa see me as well for her expert opinion. They came up with a plan of attack on my problem and laid out a time frame for defining the issue and a beginning treatment plan. I have dealt with this issue for 2 months and am finally looking forward to a resolution!
    I would recommend this Dermatology Practice to anyone !

    I was so impressed with the care and efficiency of this practice. I was seen by Dr. Massa, and she was thorough, personable and inspired my trust. I am also appreciative of the lack of wait time! I was called 2 minutes after my 10:50 appointment time, spent maybe 2 minutes answering questions from her nurse and sat on the table waiting to be seen for another 2. Impressive office management and care!

    I called for an appointment and was able to get in 2 days later. Getting into the office was super easy; they have everything pretty streamlined. All the staff I encountered was very nice. I saw Stacy and she was extremely kind and patient. She went over everything I felt might be an issue and she took her time explaining to me what each thing was. I never felt rushed.

    Dr. DeCastro is excellent! He is kind as well as extremely smart! And his staff is great! Such a clean and professional practice! I've been to several Dermatologist and Dr. DeCastro is the only one who diagnosed me and knew what was wrong with my skin.....best of all he gave me hope and didn't make me feel like a germ! I drive 114 miles one way to see him and his staff and it's worth every mile! The difference is worth the drive! No better dermatologist in Kentucky!

  • Annie Homan Avatar

    I have had regular exams by Dr. Repass and am grateful for her thoroughness and her clarity of explanations. When I was highly unsatisfied with the consult by a surgeon to whom I was initially referred, Dr. Repass promptly directed me to other help. Dr. Marzolf and other staff in the clinic "downstairs" were outstanding during my surgical procedure. My procedure was done and the problem was resolved in a far more timely, less risky, and more cost-effective manner than what the original consulting surgeon proposed. While over the years I have noticed my wait times to see the doctor have varied, I am confident this practice puts patients' needs before schedules, so I do not mind.
