Live Oak Dermatology was created from the ground up with the goal of enhancing value and creating the best experience for our patients possible, from check-in to check-out. We want to maximize quality and convenience for your visit with the dermatologist. We believe that the needs of the patient comes first and we are always looking to find ways to improve. Here are some key features or practice highlights that we think will make Live Oak Dermatology a great choice for your dermatology concerns.
-Saturday Hours Available
We know that Atlanta is busy, it can be difficult to find time during the week to seek care. Traffic can also be a challenge during the workweek. We have attempted to address these concerns by holding Saturday hours (by appointment only).
-Online scheduling and rescheduling 24/7
No need for Zocdoc. You can schedule and reschedule appointments 24/7 through our website for new and existing patients (just click the scheduling tab on the home page). You can always call 678-870-2020 also. Out patients love the ability to book their appointments online. Click here to book now.
-Tele-dermatology (Virtual Online Visits)
Tele-dermatology is the practice of dermatology from a remote location, a kind of virtual or online visit. We have partnered with Spruce, a secure messaging application on your cellphone, to be able to deliver care without being physically present at the office. This is a great feature for an acute issue when out of town, acne follow up when away at college, or a concern that develops when you really don’t have time to travel to the clinic. Patients are always searching for a dermatologist near me and this is one way to ensure you are always close by to dermatology access. You can learn more here. *Available to established patients only.
-Secure Messaging Application
With the secure messaging application we can invite you to a secure HIPPA compliant conversation. This can be used to request refills, ask questions about your visit, or request or send records. We use the Spruce messaging application. You can send us a text 678-870-2020 asking us to invite you to a secure conversation with Spruce. Or click on the website widget in the bottom right corner that says “Get in Touch”.
-New Office and Equipment
We designed Live Oak Dermatology to feel comfortable and clean and to operate effectively. We want people to feel relaxed from the second they arrive at the office in order to have the best experience possible.
-Convenient and Desirable location
We love being in the heart of historic downtown Roswell, within walking distance to the restaurants and entertainment of the Canton Street district. We are located immediately next door to the public library (across Forrest Street) which is currently undergoing a great renovation. We are excited about the Southern Post development that will soon be adding new neighbors to our block. From our office it is an easy drive to 400. We get patients form all over the area including Alpharetta, East Cobb, Atlanta, Woodstock…etc.
-Long Term Commitment and Continuity
Some corporately owned medical practices may have high turnover of physicians or employ multiple physician assistants. This can be frustrating for patients who do not feel they get good continuity of care with this model. Live Oak Dermatology was founded by board certified dermatologist Brent Thomas Goedjen, MD who is still in the first half of his career. He is fully invested in serving the community of Roswell and Atlanta. He is building a practice with long term service in mind and will only seek team members and partners with similar values.
We believe delivering the highest quality and convenient care requires ongoing adaptation. Using new technology as it becomes available to enhance the patient experience and taking patient feedback to heart, learning from criticism to improve over time. Please, don’t hesitate to provide feedback.
