    Dr. Saylor is awesome! This is the best medical care I've received in a long time. She ( and her staff) made MOHS a weirdly pleasant experience ( and I've had multiple skin cancer surgeries). She's knowledgeable caring and confident ( without being arrogant). I felt totally at ease. She's my skin cancer surgeon from now on!

    Mar 08, 2023
    I was so impressed by Dr. Saylor. I was incredibly anxious during the excision. She seemed to know exactly how much to tell me about what was happening and what to hold back. She helped me calm down by encouraging breathing playing calming music and suggesting I visualize a tropical vacation! She also made me feel confident in her skills and showed concern around minimizing scarring. I was so impressed by her I wish she could be my doctor for everything!
    Mar 04, 2023
    Best Doctor we have had for Moh's Surgery...whole team was excellent

    Feb 24, 2023
    Dr. Saylor is one of the best doctors I've ever seen and I have seen MANY doctors. Professional highly skilled friendly patient caring and generous with her time.
    Feb 24, 2023
    All of the staff seems very rushed! It made me more nervous than I was already! After the procedure I called to ask about the blood at the incision site and spoke to someone who obviously wasn't there when the procedure was done and therefore couldn't answer my question. She said send us a picture. After a procedure one does not feel well enough to do this. So I couldn't. All of this I attribute to the staff being rushed!. UC please provide more staff so patients can feel more at ease. Otherwise care was good!
    Feb 24, 2023
    There could have been more of an explanation about how swollen my face would appear after the surgery and how big the scar would be. I knew it would be larger than the lesion but it was a bit of a shock to actually see how large it was. I know I will get more information when I return to have the stitches removed but this is a difficult waiting time. Pictures of patients 3 and 6 months surgery would be helpful. The service and empathy that I received from the total staff couldn't have been better.
    Feb 22, 2023
    Dr Saylor and the entire practice exceeded all expectations

    Feb 09, 2022
    Drew is amazing. Since I have had many experiences with excision and skin cancer I can compare to many providers over the years. This procedure was amazing. I did not feel any discomfort except one tiny prick when the first numbing went in. I had no discomfort during the procedure and we talked during and it also seemed like it went quickly. I have a nurse friend here checking my stitches and she says they are the best she has ever seen. "Excellent work". She ooooed and aaaahed. I feel confident that Drew is always aware of my multiple health concerns and addresses everything for me. I really can't say enough about how good the experience was. I was having my back cut up and I left grinning.
    Feb 08, 2022
    Dr Saylor was fantastic in every way- she made me feel very comfortable and in great hands she answers all my question with patience and respect. I really appreciate her fitting me in to her schedule.
