I liked my appointment with Dr. Finesmith. She is nice and low-key, and somehow made me feel very comfortable about doing the exam of my whole body. Dr. Finesmith thoroughly examined me, and identified my little ongoing skin skirmishes

I have been seeing Dr. Finesmith for about three years. After living in a tropical climate for many years, I am concerned about skin cancer. I have had several "spots" frozen off and a few moles removed plus a few other minor skin

Pros: No drama, No Upsell

I have been a patient of Dr. Finesmith for over 7 years, as well as my husband. I have always found her to be straight forward, and not one to add additional tests or treatments to pad her pocket. \r

Cons: Extra charges for visits over 2 years

I once had a case of basal cell carcinoma on my arm that required surgery for removal, so Dr Finesmith concern for looking for skin cancer is reassuring. But she also understands the desire for nice skin and does not get too zealous.

Tina Finesmith is frank and to the point in her care. She was conservative in her initial treatment, and I am happy to have found her.
