I am so glad we were able to see Dr. Kress. He listened to what we had been doing. Rather than starting from the beginning he tweaked our routine and we saw results within days. He treated us with kindness and respect. Most importantly he gave me confidence that the skin issues would be resolved. I felt like he was on this journey with us.

excellent experience efficient, thorough and very professional.

March 06, 2020

Both Dr Kress and the Resident that saw our son were WONDERFUL. I was so overwhelmed with the kindness and interest in him. The simple act of telling us that we were doing "a great job" with my sons care seems simple but meant so much. Dr Kress took some time to sit down and give us some hope about my sons medical future. It meant so much to us.

I am very happy with the care we have received from Dr. Kress. He is very knowledgeable and knew which medications to prescribe. We are always seen quickly when we have a scheduled appointment. If I have to call the office with any questions I always get a quick response. I would recommend Dr. Kress to anyone whose child needs to see a dermatologist.

My daughter has been a patient of Dr. Kress' for 2 years. Her health issues are very complex and required a doctor that was extremely knowledgeable and willing to work closely with her other specialist to achieve the appropriate treatment. Dr. Kress possesses both of these qualities and then some and he does it all with a heartwarming smile! He always listens and explains things in a way that both my daughter and I can understand. Dr. Kress and his nursing staff have always gone above and beyond to provide the proper care for my daughter's condition. I am so very grateful to have Dr. Kress caring for my child!
