"She saved my life. I had a melanoma and because of her swift treatment, I am now cancer free. I highly recommend her."
Waterbury, CT.

"Great service! Krystin, who made my appointment was incredibly service-oriented! She went out of her way to accommodate me. Nice job, Krystin! I saw Dr. Gohara last year and I'm going back for my annual skin check up. She is an expert in skin cancer which is why I chose her. I liked her manner very much."
