““I have been seeing Dr. Zurada for several years now, and she’s the best. She is compassionate, insightful, and makes going to the dermatologist a pleasure. She recently treated many red spots on my back and they are completely gone. I think many dermatologists try to sell stuff and Dr. Zurada isn’t pushy at all. I highly recommend her!“
