Wonderful physician

5 5 Star Rating - Written on April 26, 2018
Dr. Prosise is a wonderful physician. I’ve seen her a few times at the office and it has always been a pleasant and efficient experience. CTD’s new online store makes purchasing my go-to skincare products quick and easy, and is a great way to support a small business rather than just going to Amazon. Shipping was SO fast and couldn’t be more pleased with my overall experience!


Welcoming, friendly & patient

I have been going to Central Texas Dermatology for some time now, to see Dr. Emily Prosise. 1st I am very particular who I see as my Dr from just the simple vulnerability side of things. 2nd who does any form of procedure no matter how minor. Dr. Emily Prosise is amazing, from her high level of knowledge/education, wonderful skills & even her great bedside manner. The entire staff is always welcoming, friendly & patient, even at 7:30 in the morning. To highly recommend, would be a understatement. They truly care at Central Texas Dermatology.


Kind and helpful

Dr. Prosise and her wonderful staff did an excellent job with my MOHS surgery. I was visiting Texas and needed to get it done right away and they got me right in. Dr. Prosise is highly qualified and has a lovely manner that made me feel at ease. The procedure was so quick and easy I felt as if I was there for a spa treatment than a surgical procedure. Everyone was so kind and helpful. I highly recommend this practice!
