Patient Testimonials

"The staff at Inverness Dermatology is always so positive and friendly. Dr. Jacobson always takes time to ensure that my needs are being met. I don’t feel like I’m just another patient but more like a family member. Thanks Dr. J. You are WONDERFUL!"

− Dee, Birmingham, AL

"My first visit to Inverness Dermatology & Laser was because my wife insisted I go with her. I reluctantly made an appointment and Dr. Jacobson found a melanoma on my scalp during a routine exam. It was removed and was in an early stage so it had not metastasized. During subsequent exams over the past three years, two squamous cell carcinomas and one basal cell carcinoma have been found early and removed. I have also seen Dr. Marks and Mary Beth Helms, PA-C and they are competent, professional and caring. I simply will not go anywhere else. The staff is courteous and efficient. Appointments are almost always on time. This is the best run medical practice I have ever experienced. I consider myself very fortunate to be a patient of Inverness Dermatology & laser."

− Jon, Tuscaloosa, AL

"I have been a patient of Inverness Dermatology since their office opened. My experience has only been positive. The professionalism displayed by everyone in the office is a standard that I look for and receive every time I visit the office. I feel very confident that I am receiving the most accurate and best medical service available and have full trust in their decisions to address my medical needs. Pre-cancer and cancer cells have been removed and this gives me peace of mind that the staff is very knowledgeable and provides the best treatment. I enjoy the positive atmosphere that is always displayed by all personnel. I would not consider another Dermatology office for my medical needs. They are simply the best."
