"Talking with Dr. Arntzen, I was not only treated but I learned about my condition. This, I feel, is extremely rare from health care providers. She spoke to me like a person for whom she cared, not just another patient. Most importantly, the treatments have been very effective. Overall, my experience with this clinic was outstanding. I would return to Westside Dermatology without reservation."

"I have NEVER had a better experience with a doctor. For someone who works herself up over medical issues and absolutely loathes going in for an appointment-- Kelli was the nicest, most comforting and down-to-earth doctor I have met. She was so caring and understanding and she put me at ease immediately. By the end we were laughing and sharing stories with each other...Thank you so much!"



Riley W. in Seattle

"I have been seeing Dr Arntzen for years and just love her. She's very professional and caring and always takes her time. I've had different procedures done (skin issues, laser treatments, sclerotherapy) and have always been happy with the results. Their (relatively) new space couldn't be better located, (right off California near EVERYTHING!) especially since there's always free parking available, whether on the street or lot. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone and already have!!!"
