  • Please note that virtual visits are not appropriate for urgent conditions or emergencies.  Virtual visits may be submitted after hours, but may be handled by our office during business hours.

    “Dr.Sewell saw my 15 month old and was great with her! He was down on the floor with her to make her feel comfortable and was very helpful with all the questions I had regarding her eczema.”

    Verified Patient

    “I have seen several other dermatologists in the past few years and I have never left feeling content. Always rushed out the door, given a generic regimen, no time for questions. But Dr. Sewell astounded me. He was so kind, so genuine; he really cares about his patients. He answered every single one of my questions and was incredibly knowledgeable when it came to any of the medications or treatment options.  I will certainly be back.”
