What Patients Are Saying:

  • Dr. Correa has supported my husband through a very challenging, somewhat rare condition that has severely limited his mobility. Having an expert with bedside manners feels rare and we are eternally grateful to have found this with Dr. Correa.
  • Dr. Correa was so informative as he did my annual body check. To know that the moles and other skin oddities on my body were benign and nothing to worry about was very reassuring. No other dermatologist I have seen was that thorough.
  • I had a great experience, Doctor Correa was excellent and the clinic and staff were a pleasure to work with.
  • My 92 year old father and I were extremely pleased with Dr Correa’s treatment. Many doctors don’t do well with older people, but Dr Correa was thorough, considerate and very good at giving us an explanation of his condition . Many older people feel fobbed off by doctors. This doctor was excellent.
  • Dr. Correa is the nicest Dermatologist ever. He thinks of the best solution that fits YOU. He’s very sweet and super smart about the care he provides. He explains everything he’ll do before he does it. His Asst. is amazing also. Together they helped take care of an issue I’ve had for 20 years. I’ve seen approx. 10 Dermatologists, but always end up back at the Derm. Dr. C. is a good listener, he cares about people and wants the best for his patients. I highly recommend him. If I could give an extra star I would. In my opinion, he’s the best in Austin!
