Dear Dr. Farris,
It’s so rare to find a doctor that cares enough to give a patient their cell phone. I can’t thank you enough for answering my call on Christmas and for calling in the medication I needed so quickly. You were right, shingles is no fun, but I’m sure it would have been far worse without your prompt attention.

Dr Farris,
The procedure you did for me last month was nicest thing anyone has done for me in years. I am so pleased with the results and I have a renewed self-confidence in the way I look. Thank you for your expert hands, generosity and for taking such good care of me”

Dr Farris,
I just wanted to thank you for all your help and for being available when I need an appointment. Virginia and Sheri are so sweet, patient and eager to help me every time I call your office to schedule. Your sensitivity to my problem and sense of humor have been a great comfort to me and for that I say THANK YOU! I am so fortunate to be one of your patients.”

Dr Farris,
Just a quick note to tell you how please I am with the filler injections you did on my cheek. If I had know that taking that cyst out would leave a deep scar I probably would not have done it. Good news is the scar is far less noticeable now after the filler

I’ve been seeing Dr. Turegano for mole and skin checks and couldn’t be more appreciative of how caring and understanding she is. I tend to worry myself more than necessary and she puts me at ease. Skin checks are very important to me and it’s wonderful to have found a dermatologist who is understanding of my concerns and knowledgeable on the matter. She’s also provided the most thorough skin checks I’ve had compared to those with any other dermatologist. I can leave feeling confident that I’ve had a thorough check without the nagging afterthought of wondering if something was missed. Her positive and understanding nature is exactly what you want in a dermatologist. Thank you so much, Dr. Turegano!

I knew I had to see Dr. Turegano on my trip to New Orleans having heard about Old Metairie Dermatology through a friend and finding out that Dr. T is triple board certified in dermatology, internal medicine, and dermapathology. Despite her superb credentials, she was relatable and had a down-to-earth humility about her, which made me trust her even more.

Dr. T was everything I had hoped for in a doc. Not only was she knowledgable and thorough in helping me come up with a solution for adult acne, she is also incredibly caring and understanding. She took all the time she needed to understand the history of my acne. She demonstrated knowledge of the latest in research and treatment and was very thorough when answering all of my (many) questions regarding risks and benefits of each possible treatment approach. I appreciated that she was supportive in empowering me as a patient by taking into consideration my goals in selecting the best treatment for me (to go with a treatment that would have the least number of possible side effects yet still be effective). Dr. Turegano also incorporated nutritional and dietary recommendations for me to supplement my treatment. She followed up with me two weeks after I began treatment, and answered the remaining questions that I had which I really appreciated.

One week after I visited Old Metairie Dermatology, my acne began to subside and soon after it was gone. I felt very confident in the treatment that we decided on together, and completely trust her recommendations. The staff at Old Metairie is awesome. From Virginia in the office to the nurses. I got a sense of a team of people who care a lot about their patients. I would recommend Old Metairie Dermatology to everyone.
