"After years of suffering with eczema, Patrice Simon at Legacy Dermatology finally gave me some hope! My occupation as a hairdresser has prevented me from being able to heal and treat the dyshidrotic eczema on my hands to the point that it was unbearable. It has prevented me from being able to perform over 75% of my tasks at work and home. I was no longer able to even bathe my daughter because my hands were left with severe pain, itching, burning, and so on. Even religiously wearing gloves didn't work. My hands would get hot and sweat, and the symptoms would flare up just as bad. I was at a complete loss. It was a viscous cycle. I was willing to try anything to make the pain go away. That's when i found Legacy Dermatology. The staff was warm and welcoming. Patrice was very sweet, sincere, patient, and informative to me. She drew up a game plan and prescribed me the right over the counter and prescriptions needed to tackle this agony! I must mention the young man at the counter that rescheduled me and took care of my products was a breath of fresh air! He was very helpful and left my smiling on the way out. They felt like a family and that's very important when you are at your wits end with a medical condition! Thank you again to Legacy Dermatology and Patrice for all your hospitality and care."
"Went to Legacy Dermatology a few weeks ago and saw Patrice. She was so knowledgeable and actually listen to me and my concerns. She made sure to have me use the best products for my skin for a reasonable price. I greatly appreciated every moment there. Highly recommend her."
"I went today for the first time to have a mole checked. The office is beautiful, and everyone there I interacted with was welcoming and professional. I saw Patrice Simon, and she was awesomely knowledgeable with a warm, friendly manner that put me at ease. She explained everything she saw on my skin that I had worried about. Frisco is a bit of a drive for me, but is well worth it for the level of care and consideration I experienced. I am happy to recommend this practice!"
"I've been going here for about 6 months now and have seen both Dr. Dharamsi and Patrice. Both are incredibly knowledgeable and kind, and any skin issue you walk in with will be solved or have an excellent treatment plan when you leave whether or not it's the issue that brought you in the first place. I love how thorough they are and how on top of any situation you may have they are from their follow ups to their quickness at getting back to you with any phoned in questions. My husband and daughter both see either Dr. Dharamsi or Patrice as well and feel the same way. Daughter's eczema is under control and she has products that actually work on teen skin without aggravating it further. On the product note, they do sell many in a variety of price ranges and don't push them on you. My husband, daughter, and myself all now have a customized skincare routine. Andrea is amazing too for any cosmetic skin concerns. I've done a facial, a peel, 2 different lasers, and even ventured into Botox once with her and it was a great experience every time. She takes a "less is more" approach with Botox so I never felt stiff or expressionless. When it came to the lasers it was for a specific concern in one area that I was told might take more than one treatment and they adjusted the price for the second treatment since it was isolated to one spot. Highly recommend Legacy Dermatology for any medical or cosmetic skin concerns."
"I was a new patient and I was able to get an appointment within 24 hours. Everyone in the office was super friendly, the wait to see the PA was not long at all. Her name was Patrice and she was super nice and knowledgeable. I went in with one concern and she ended up addressing 3 additional things. I had 3 shave biopsies and 1 punch biopsy done. It was fast and they made me feel very comfortable. She explained everything to me thoroughly and I didn't leave the office with any unanswered questions. Definitely recommend."
