What our patients say about Peter Eichwald

Best dermatologist ever! Peter Eichwald was very personable, professional and efficient. He took great care of my needs. I can’t recommend him highly enough. My husband also had a great experience with him a year ago. Recommended without hesitation! – Ellen Stewart

Quick and easy check in for my appointment. Staff was friendly, polite and professional. In the exam room, Peter took time to check my concerns, ensured my comfort and provided treatment at the same time – Chad Bennett

First visit to Redding Derm, however, not my last. I was amazed at the efficiency and level of service. I had a nasty cancer growing next to my eye and they took one look and got right on it. Now, two days post opp and so relieved and pain free at last. Thank you Peter Eichwald and staff. Everyone is fantastic!
