What do patients have to say about you?

"Dr. Melissa Burnett is above exceptional. I have had skin issues since I was 9 and I am now 50. I have met with many dermatologists. I trust her 1000% with my skin care needs, and that of my two children. She is a perfectionist. Her staff is so warm and welcoming and it is such a great experience entering her office. I highly recommend her for any and all skin care issues."
"Premier Dermatology is the best!! Due to my pre-existing condition I no longer could take medication for my acne, however Dr. Burnett prescribed a topical solution that worked just as well. The staff at Premier Dermatology are all professional and easy to work with. I've also referred Dr. Burnett to several friends who have never been disappointed with service or result."
"Dr. Melissa Burnett and her staff at Premier Dermatology in Wellesley are an amazing team. They take their time, explain thoroughly and make their space so inviting and comfortable. Thank you all for such great care."
