5 out of 5 stars Chemical Peel

Great Dermatologist

Excellent experience. I go there for everything skin related. They are professional and curteous. They have a clean, stylish work place and a great staff. I love their parties and always feel comfortable asking questions. Highly recommend Dr. Scheel and her staff!

5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery

Helped me find skin cancer - Kailua Kona, HI

This office is not just for the ladies. My wife got me a gift certificate at one of the office’s events for a full body skin check. While they were doing my skin check, they used MelaFind and detected a basal cell carcinoma on my cheek. Dr Scheel’s team did a great Mohs surgery on it. Was very impressed and glad I went in for a routine checkup.

5 out of 5 stars Chemical Peel

Amazing experience! - Kailua Kona, HI

From the minute you walk through the doors, the experience starts ! I love everything about this office. From the staff, the products, and the many different procedures they offer. I have had everything from Botox , chemical peels and basal cell skin cancer removals. Regardless of the treatment or procedure the staff is extremely qualified and there to help you every step of the way.

5 out of 5 stars IPL

Would highly recommend!

When I walk into Dr. Scheel’s office, I know I will be well taken care of. It’s the best of both worlds: a spa-like feeling met with the highest medical standards and care. I’ve been coming here for years to get HydraFacials, IPLs, and chemical peels. This is also the only place I go to for sunscreen and skin care products. I love Monica’s personal line she created in the last several years a...

5 out of 5 stars CO2 Laser

Thank you Dr Scheel

I have been a patient of Dr Scheels for several years. She has always given me what I feel very good treatment and always listens to my concerns regarding my skin. Her office help is outstanding and I feel lucky we have her here on the Big Island.

2 out of 5 stars Fractional Laser

Cannot Recommend - Kailua Kona, HI

Otherwise, the office appears to be well run, but Dr. Scheel is young and the inexperience is evident.

Get Naked - Melanoma

Melanoma does not play favorites. Anyone can get melanoma (even those with darker skin) and you can get it anywhere on the skin and even some non-skin areas such as inside the eye. It is important to know this because every year 10,000 people die in the United States from melanoma with the incidence of this deadly cancer rising at a steady rate. Good news is that with early detection and treatment survival rates for melanoma can be more than 90%. This is why it is important to get checked at...
