Dr. Fortson is an incredible highly gifted talented and devoted doctor. If I could give her 100 stars I would. I have been her patient periodically for 10 years and she has always been not only ready to see me as soon as possible but has provided me exceptional healthcare. She listens to me makes a very comprehensive and thorough diagnosis and has provided me treatment which has been very successful. Her office staff are likewise very professional and friendly and willing to help. I have lived in Alaska over 40 years and I’ve never encountered a doctor more devoted talented and dedicated than Dr. Fortson.

5 stars. Hands-down the best dermatology visit I have ever been to! Dr Fortson is an amazing listener and came up with solutions that all 3 other dermatologists I’ve seen haven’t. ❤️

First time to a dermatologist and so glad I stumbled across Dr. Fortson MD. I was able to schedule an appointment promptly and they were very nice on the phone.

Upon arriving, the waiting room is unassuming, modest and doesn't reveal how fantastic they really are! Receptionist was welcoming, friendly and very organized (which I like!), got me checked in promptly. Five minutes later I was called and in a room. Assistant was sweet, fun and friendly. Minutes later Dr. Fortson came in. She immediately assessed me and we got right to it, lol. I like that she's direct, and gets right to business. She is clearly the best and I loved how she looked at me, listened to my issues, and quickly discussed her treatment plan and my options. I was able to schedule a laser treatment two days later, and she had her assistant show me options for skincare.

They are clear about treatment options, clear about their products, clear about pricing structure, and clear that they are there to help you.

Highly recommend Dr. Fortson. She and her staff have been exceptional. Loved the laser treatment and signed up for three more.

I have had the opportunity to visit this office three times now. Each visit has been a very positive experience. The staff is courteous, professional, and efficient. The Dr. is knowledgeable and timely. In each case the issue has been resolved first time and follow up has been prompt. I do highly recommend Dr. Fortson.

Dr. Fortson and staff is the best, Janelle, Cynthia, and Yuki. Dr. Fortson is very thorough, knowledgeable, listens, and advises accordingly. A very positive experience with preventative body scan, sensitive to modesty and privacy in room. Excellent customer service. 5-star!!!

I'm not normally a "review" person; but in this case my care was so extraordinary and beyond my expectations that I felt it was warranted. I have had an ongoing skin rash that had totally baffled by family physician for more than 8 months; we had tried steroids, antibiotics, and various ointments without success. As the issue worsened my doctor started down a path suspecting that I might be having an allergic reaction to something, but it was all a guess. Out of frustration I went to Dr Fortson, and on my first visit her experience led to a diagnosis and treatment plan that totally eliminated the issue in just two weeks. I was absolutely amazed! You pay a doctor for their expertise, and for skin issues all I can say is that dermatology is her element. She knew instantly precisely what was needed, and in less than an hour she had put me on a path to being cured; two weeks later my skin is back to normal. I only wish I had gone to her sooner.

I had a staph infection that had led to a rash that nobody i went to could figure out. At this point, my leg was more or less ravaged after months and months or failed treatment. I was at my wit's end and felt like a leper. Within weeks she had cleared up everything and sent me out the door with a care plan that's kept me tip-top since. It was such a relief and I can't thank her enough.

I'm a person who is completely reluctant when stepping into medical offices, but Fortson Dermatology was nothing but a great experience.

Medical name: herpes zoster

Shingles causes a painful, blistering rash for most people. It is a reactivation of the same virus that causes chicken pox. If you've had chicken pox, the virus can return as shingles and affect the nerves.

See a doctor immediately if you think you may have shingles. Starting a prescription within 2 to 3 days of developing the rash can substantially reduce pain and shorten the duration. See the doctor even if it's been longer to lower the risk of other serious health issues

The shingles vaccine, available at pharmacies, has been proven as the most effective method to reduce the risk.
