Dr. Shanesmith was very thorough in her examination. I went in for one thing and she found another thing to address as well. I sincerely appreciated that. I so glad that our town has additional dermatologists now as it's been hard to get appointments in the past. I'll be returning to her for my care I. the future and I've already recommended her to someone else.

The dr carefully looked over my entire body and asked questions as she touched suspicious spots. It was one of the most thorough exams I've had in BCS. She truly was concerned about me because I've had several cancer removals including melanoma. Her assistant was very thorough and corrected all changes in my records. I so appreciate their thoroughness because it can be life altering. They both were professional and caring....Very grateful for this team!

I love this provider because she gave me options concerning the treatment of my acne and didn't just give up on me. In the past, I had a dermatologist not associated with Baylor Scott & White tell me that it was accutane or he couldn't help me. This provider pinpointed the cause of my problem and gave me an aggressive treatment!
