My experience at Eternal was outstanding. Professional courteous staff and doctors! The improvements in my skin from the chemical peel are amazing!
I visited Eternal Dermatology for hair loss and burning on my scalp. Dr. Rodney and her staff were very knowledgeable about CCCA and the most cutting-edge treatments.
My appointment with Dr. Rodney was nothing short of amazing. I've gotten botox and fillers done by other dermatologists but I've never gotten results as great as this before.
I went to Dr. Rodney for a routine skin cancer screening. As soon as I arrived, I was certain that this is a top quality establishment.
I just had a wonderful consultation with Dr. Rodney. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable about my daughters skin condition. I’m looking forward to seeing the results of her recommendations.
I highly recommend adding them to your appointment list! I would rate them a 10 if rating scales went that far!!
