    5 star rating   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!

    5 star rating   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.

    5 star rating   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.

    5 star rating   I would highly recommend Dr. Blackmon to anyone who has skin cancer! Dr. Blackmon performed the Mohs surgery on me yesterday to remove Squamous cell carcinoma I had on my nose very close to my eye! Needless to say, I was very anxious but he & his very kind caring staff calmed my fears! He kept me informed every step of the way while he began to remove the cancer in layers that he has to stain, freeze & look at it under a microscope to make sure all the cancer cells are gone. He removed the first layer & all the cancer was gone in the depth but some remained on the surface in 2 areas. He had to remove a little bit more. After he removed it, my family was brought into the room with me while we waited to see what the outcome of the 2nd step. When the door opened Dr. Blackmon had a smile on his face & looked at me and said... ("YOU ARE CANCER FREE!") I can't tell you how happy I was to hear those words!!! � ... THANK YOU DR. BLACKMON FOR GIVING ME MY LIFE BACK!!! �� ... I hope you have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! You have certainly given me & my family one!!! GOD BLESS YOU!!!! �

I received Dr. Massa's full, non-rushed attention during my examination, and my wait time was short. DAK gets five stars from me!

    5 star rating   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 !

    5 star rating   Dr. April Ramsey exhibited concern about my health more than any other doctor ever has! She understood how I felt about the appearance of my skin and listened to what I had to say about my choice of treatment. I even felt comfortable enough to be honest about my inferior health habits. She even gave me hope to improve my other health issues! She's very knowledgeable and professional!

    5 star rating   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.
