    My daughter and I both saw Dr. Clark. He was personable, knowledgeable, and quickly took care of all of the skin issues I was concerned with. The staff was also very friendly. Very satisfied with our visit.

    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 Saw Dr. DeCastro ( spelled wrong probably). He is amazing. I will never go anyplace else or see anyone else. He is the greatest. He knew immediately what my issue was and I was in and out. Highly recommend him!

    The reception area is very warm and inviting. The girls behind the counter were professional and efficient. My wait times was less than 10 minutes from my appointment time. The assistant that took my information was thorough the doctor was in to see me within five minutes of the assistant leaving and I was evaluated and treated. Everything was explained to me. I only rated it 9 out of 10 on my satisfaction survey because I do not understand how all of these doctor offices that are part of the Kentucky one network cannot access the information that is already on the patient portal. It seems each one of them has their own patient portal and I have to fill out the information every time I go to see a different doctor even if they're in the same Kentucky one system. I will have No Reservations about referring others to this Clinic or returning myself

    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 been a patient since 2014 and have been seen at both Frankfort and Lexington. I see any doctor who is available as they all have been exceptional. I have even seen one or two of the male doctors and I never felt they were less than professional.

    Skin cancer screenings require every inch of your skin to be examined. If you are a woman and prefer a female, understandable. They listen, review your chart, take photos for compare and contrast, and they will tell you honestly their opinion. If it is bad they explain it, and ease the fear of skin cancers.

    This office sees me in a timely manner, especially when I notixed a carcinoma I was seen in a week. It was small and frozen off. I have had AK's frozen as well.

    Some doctors take the wait and see approach. But I am aggressive as I am

    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!

    My husband and I have both gone to D.A.K. for over 20 years. We have always been very pleased with all the Dr.'s we have seen. Dr. Mersack retired and I have seen about 4 other ones in the office. All have been very excellent. Nurses and Staff have been extremely helpful. We would recommend Dermatology Associates of Ky. In our opinion they are the BEST.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Harry Hilton Avatar

    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!

    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 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.

    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.

    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!

    Dr. Braun was excellent! My daughter (15) was really nervous/anxious about going but he was so kind and helpful that we both felt right at home. He had a very positive and calming demeanor about him that you don't get from a lot of doctors. Very happy I chose them for my daughter's issues and would highly recommend!

    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!
