October 07, 2020
This was a first visit for me and a great experience. The entire staff made it a comfortable visit
October 05, 2020
I waited over six months to have my first visit with Dr. Flynn. On the day of my appointment, I showed up over 20 minutes early (my appointment was at 11 am). I was not seen by any nurses or by Dr. Flynn until nearly 11:40am. When I was finally brought into a room, nobody apologized to me about the wait. When I finally met with Dr. Flynn, it felt like she rushed through our conversation and did not really listen to my needs. She prescribed me medication but she did not explain how that medication was going to help my acne. Although she was respectful and nice, I definitely feel as though there is room for improvement.
October 04, 2020

Incredible. I was wanting to give my appointment up to get my baby looked at because he's also going through treatment bc he's having skin issues we haven't been able to continue but Dr Flynn made time to see me in her already busy schedule. I am so beyond thankful for her.
August 29, 2020
My doc has done well by me in preemptively helping curtail early cancer from becoming a full blown cancerous event. Dr. Flynn has always been considerate and has been informative of my skim issued. I work outside so she is understanding of my skin issues and concerns. Thank you.

It's really sad that at the end of the visit when scheduling the next appointment it is the receptionist that brings an otherwise 10 rating down! Crabby and does not offer a smile! Dr Flynn is awesome ??

I go to your derm clinic & see Dr. Flynn regular for a skin condition...Dr. Flynn & staff are so pleasant & top notch!! I always enjoy my experience with everyone I meet at Avera Derm. Keep up the good work, Avera Derm!!
July 29, 2020
Dr Flynn and her staff are the absolute BEST! I couldnt ask for a better care provider.
July 25, 2020
I think the masks while in the room are a little excessive. I had to take it off anyway for her to look at my face-doesn't make much sense to me.
July 24, 2020
I had an issue with blood leaking through the band aid on my way out-asked for a band-aid -instead took me back to exam room and took care of me
July 22, 2020
This last visit was more on time than any of my other visits.
July 22, 2020
This was my first time at Avera Derm and they were FABULOUS!!! Everyone was so warm and welcoming and comforting.
July 20, 2020
The only thing I have to say is that waiting to see the doctor seemed to take longer than usual.
July 18, 2020
Dr. Flynn is very efficient and thorough
July 13, 2020
Dr. Valerie Flynn is very talented in her work. She listens carefully and asks clarifying questions in order to understand my needs and wishes as her patient. She also has a wonderful bedside manner and cares about her patients. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my dermatology needs.

June 20, 2020
It was a great experience, glad I choose your clinic.
June 20, 2020
Wait time is always quite a bit, but it's in the separate exam room at least. :)

May 21, 2020
Very kind! Explained things well! Made me feel comfortable
May 19, 2020
I was so worried about my first trip to a dermatologist, and Dr. Flynn put me right at ease. She explained everything so well, and really took the time to get to know me. She also didn't judge me based on my amount of sun damage to my skin which was one of my fears before coming and why it took me so long to go to a dermatologist. I wish now I had gone earlier, and will definitely be making a yearly visit to Dr. Flynn.
May 13, 2020
Dr. Valerie Flynn is such a great dermatologist!!
April 03, 2020
Best place and care ever
March 28, 2020
I love Dr Flynn and her office
March 28, 2020
It felt like to me that both the doctor & the nurse were in too much of a hurry to be done with me. Also, I never saw one smile from either of them, too stern which made me feel uncomfortable. Also, I am 79 yrs. old & didn't get much help trying to lie down or get up from the examining table which is very hard for me as I have a bad back & just can't be as agile as I used to be.
March 27, 2020
They were just very nice and professional
March 26, 2020
I was very nervous about the corona virus, not sure what to expect. But when I arrived at the clinic I was put at ease.
March 26, 2020
Impressive
March 25, 2020
Dr. Flynn & her assistant are compassionate, kind and beyond supportive. They make me feel like family that they're eager to spend time with. The entire practice mirrors that concern & welcoming environment.
March 25, 2020
Love the entire staff!
