- Oral Presentation at the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Oct. 2006, Palm Desert, CA
"I recently read a couple of misguided reviews of Dr. Tracy Evans. I have been treated in many of the finest dermatology clinics and in private practices across the West Coast. In my experience, Tracy Evans and her staff of highly trained doctors and nurses, are not just among the best, but are hands down, THE best I have ever seen. Dr Evans is a highly skilled surgeon for Moh's surgery, which she has performed on me dozens of times. Before I met Dr. Evans, I was overwhelmed with increasing numbers of skin cancers. I came to Precision Dermatology utterly discouraged from fighting skin cancer for over 2 decades with no good end in site I felt hopeless, from Dr.s giving up or telling me I couldn't be cured. Dr. Evans gave me hope again. She promised me, she wouldn't give up on me. I now know that I owe my life to her and her amazing staff. If you are looking for the best, and you're lucky enough to become her patient, you need look no further. Thank you Dr Evans!"
"The staff here is beyond exceptional.One of the best Dr appts I’ve had. Clarence, her PA is wonderful & the front desk staff has the competent and cheery disposition of unjaded youth. I’ll update my review after getting the MOHS surgery removal to compare work & costs to my previous doctor but so far, exceptional experience!"
"Unfailingly pleasant and efficient"
"Highly recommended. We felt very comfortable with them. Everything was explained in detail. The staff is absolutely friendly and helpful. Our search for a good dermatologist ends after visiting Dr Evans."
