Ratings for Dr. Ruskin R. Lines
I went in to Dr Lines office for a skin cancer screening and had a couple spots removed, one on the arm and one under.my left eye. The spot under my eye caused swelling and so I needed to stay home from work until the swelling went down. Because I drive a truck, I needed a simple note saying that it would not affect my driving and Dr Lines was rude on the phone and would not provide a doctor's note for my work.
Dr. Lines is one awesome Dermatologist...I am writing a review to express my love for this Dr....he saved my life finding a Melanoma on my back that I did not even know about...I went to him for fascial Basal Cell...he did alot of work on me and what a breath of fresh air....honest and integrity...worked with me on payment for over a period of 2 years without one call for the balance to be paid...I love this Dr.....thank you Dr. Lines and Staff...Vint and Linda Hargrave
During my research to find a Dermotologist, the above 4/21/07 rating struck me as as refreshingly positive in comparison to others. It was the deciding factor for choosing Dr. Lines. My experience was equally positive. Dr. Lines diagnosed the red spot as Basal Cell Carcinoma. During the examination, he also spotted a bluish colored mole that could potentially be melanoma. His demeanor and explanation skills were excellent and comforting. He removed the carcinoma and mole. What I expected would be just an examination, actually resulted in a productive session to remedy the problems. About a week later, I received the results of the biopsies in a phone conversation personally with Dr. Lines, which was an amazing display of personal attention and concern. I was informed that the biopsies confirmed that the carcinoma and mole removal appeared to be complete and that the mole did not appear to be melanoma. I highly recommend Dr. Lines for your dermatology concerns.
I chose Dr. Lines in part because of dual board certification (dermatology, dermatopathology). He is very good at what he does. He removed a very small malignant melanoma from my shoulder, and was thorough in his explanation of what he was doing as well as why each step was performed. Once the sample was biopsed and determined to be malignant, a larger excavation was performed. He was very accommodating and conversational throughout the procedure. I would strongly recommend him as a physician that is skilled and understanding.
