Patient Testimonials

As a result of the compassionate care we deliver, we develop lasting relationships with our patients. Many times we hear from our patients about how the doctors and staff at Vanguard Skin Specialists have helped them. For those of you we hear from, we thank you for passing along your kind words. Here are some of our favorites:

Everyone was top notch, professional, skilled, and otherwise perfect beyond description. I can't imagine a better place to have one’s face rearranged. – Skin cancer surgery patient


Dr. Michael Leslie along with his medical assistants were all very helpful and friendly for each of my visits. I highly recommend Vanguard to my family and friends. They were always quick and efficient with my appointments and addressed any questions I ever had. Two thumbs up. – Dermatology patient


Tonya Sook was excellent. I went in because I was concerned about some spots on my face and back being cancerous and she quickly assured me they were nothing to worry about. I felt silly for being so worried over nothing and she told me to never feel that way, I did the right thing getting them checked and encouraged me to see a doctor anytime I am worried about these things. – Dermatology patient


I was lucky enough to meet Rachel Frederickson, PA-C...having unusual and unattractive skin issues is already embarrassing, let alone some stranger looking even closer at you, but Rachel was so kind and understanding I felt no trepidation. This was my first visit to a dermatologist but thanks to meeting the wonderful team at Vanguard it won't be my last. Rachel was able to get my skin condition under control in just days, which my GP was not able to help much. I am so thankful I took a shot...I highly recommend Vanguard! – Dermatology patient


Dr. Prado is compassionate, understanding, and really took the time to answer all of my questions. Would highly recommend! – Dermatology patient


I cannot imagine better care than that which I received from Dr. Chung and his entire staff during my recent surgery. Everything and everyone were outstanding in every respect! I offer my sincere appreciation to Dr. Chung, his medical assistants, and front office. – Skin cancer surgery patient, Monument, CO


Dr. Chung is so highly qualified. He puts my mind at ease for any dermatology problems. I was so impressed with him a year ago when I was preparing with him for Mohs on my eyelid. He personally called me back when I had questions. THAT impressed me greatly.  – Skin cancer surgery patient, Colorado Springs, CO


I want to take this opportunity to thank you for taking such care of my dear father… I called my father every day during this grueling procedure and it goes without saying but bears repeating, you are “top of the line” in your field and not only that, but your demeanor is kind, compassionate and genuinely good to your patients. … thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so very kind to my father… I am grateful to you all.  – Daughter of patient, Pueblo, CO


[The picture on this card] reminds me of how grateful I am for your skillful management of my case. In brief: You saved my life and both my (now much relieved) family and I are PROFOUNDLY grateful. Thank you so much.  – Skin cancer surgery patient, Colorado Springs, CO


Thank you for your extraordinary service during the past nine months of my skin cancer removal. It has been a privilege to have been in the care of such a fine dermatology office. Your skill is exceptional, the entire staff professional and caring, and the outcome has been much better than I had anticipated. May God bless you all and your work! With many thanks!  – Skin cancer surgery patient, Colorado Springs, CO


Many thanks for a great job on my ear. I can now lay on my right side without pain for the first time in several years. Also, I want to let you know that you have the most pleasant staff I’ve seen in many years.  – Skin cancer surgery patient, Woodland Park, CO


Everyone at your office does such a great job, and I couldn't have asked for more from a medical team including the assistant that was in the room and the ladies on the phone. I don't usually say that to anyone.  – Skin cancer surgery patient, Woodland Park, CO


I just want to express how grateful I am for your concern and generosity which you have shown my daughter. She has faced many difficulties and your reaction to her situation is one of the bright lights. Thank you.  – Mother of patient, Colorado Springs, CO


This has been the most professional, thoughtful, gracious, and thorough health care I have ever had, anywhere. Dr. Chung is beyond compare as a physician, takes more than enough time and is always explaining treatment options, etc.  He has my full confidence. His staff is always courteous, considerate, cheerful, and even funny. I actually look forward to my visits and consider all of [the staff] to be my friends.  – Skin cancer surgery patient, Woodland Park, CO


The staff made me feel very welcome and comfortable. The doctor was very informational and seemed concerned about me! Thank you all for a wonderful experience!  – Skin cancer surgery patient, Colorado Springs, CO


The staff is so warm and friendly--all smiles. Dr. Chung is very thorough and has great bedside manner.  – Dermatology patient, Woodland Park, CO


Thank you for the great care and concern this past year. It was scary for me, but you treated me and my concerns with compassion.  – Dermatology patient, Colorado Springs, CO


My husband and I want you to know that we appreciate all your help with our skin cancer problems.  We're both doing very well and we're certainly glad to have you taking care of us. Thank you! You are very understanding about our personal issues and your interest and compassion have made us feel at ease. Thank you so much for being there for us.  – Skin cancer surgery patient, Florissant, CO
