    Dr.Saylor and her team are the best!
    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

    I would highly recommend Dr. Drew Saylor as she has always shown compassion caring and allows plenty of time to explain details of treatment needed in a very understandable way. She is a very good communicator & has taken time to listen to any of my questions/concerns. Even though I'm not thrilled with my diagnosis which initially caused me to see her I always look forward to seeing Dr. Saylor as I look forward to seeing a good friend. She is the epitome of what every doctor should be.
    Apr 20, 2021
    I called in to get instructions again which were then posted on MyChart which was great!
    Apr 14, 2021
    Drew is knowledgable a great communicator empathetic & lovely to work with. I have multiple health issues post cancer & my skin is very different. She has given me straight answers on what to be concerned about and what things I can do to make the things that bother me that are not medically important better. I have seen several dermos over the years ans she is HANDS DOWN the best. I feel very blessed to have her added to my arsenal of people who are helping guide me back to wellness. It has been a very tough journey.
    Apr 14, 2021
    Would certainly recommend this doctor to friends and family.

    Apr 08, 2021
    Dr Drew Saylor is truly exceptional. From the consult day re: the MOHS straight thru to the end of the procedure her professional knowledge clear explanations accessibility--all A-plus. She instilled confidence and assured the MOHS procedure progressed without a flaw. She was so very careful and gentle that I had no pain whatsoever in the aftermath of the MOHS. I acually thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience----a rare compliment for a medical intervention. But I am so impressed and deeply grateful. You've got a real winner in Dr. Saylor as well as a first-rate medical team who works with her. Thank you!
