KARA PRETZLAFF, MD
Henderson Location Only
Best experience EVER! Dr. Kara Pretzlaff was very thorough and took the time to explain my condition with compassion–completely alleviated all my concerns. I rank her as Las Vegas’s #1 Dermatologist. Head and shoulders above the rest.
Very nice facility, friendly staff, short wait times, and the doctor was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Kara Pretzlaff and Vivida Dermatology.
One of the best experiences I have had in a medical practice here in Henderson. Dr. Kara Pretzlaff is an excellent Dr.–great bedside manner, very thorough, and clear explanations and answers to questions. Maribela is very welcoming and provides fantastic assistance to Dr. Pretzlaff. I also have to recognize the two ladies at the front desk. Excellent customer service which provides a great first impression for the office. I will definitely recommend this practice to neighbors and friends!
This was my first visit and I was very impressed with the state of the art facility and professionalism of all staff and Dr. Pretzlaff. They made the process easy and painless.
I would highly recommend Dr. Pretzlaff to friends and family. She was thorough, kind and explained everything. When I had a concern after my procedure and left a message, Dr. Pretzlaff got back to me quickly-I didn’t have to wait for days to get a call back. The nurse was wonderful and the front desk staff was very nice too. Thank you for a great experience.
In college, her mission statement reminded her to be “men and women for others”. She tries to implement this into her daily practice and enjoys getting to know her patients beyond whatever skin problems they are dealing with. She loves helping patients of all ages regain confidence with problems ranging from psoriasis to acne to eczema to skin cancer, in addition to more complex dermatologic conditions like autoimmune bullous disorders and dermatomyositis.
Dr. Pretzlaff understands that issues with your skin, hair, or nails can be difficult when it is the first thing that everyone else sees, and empathizes with the goal to get things back to normal. She remains a member of the American Academy of Dermatology and looks forward to remaining connected with the rest of dermatology community to ensure access to the most up to date care for all of my patients.
Now that she is here with her husband and adorable mutt, Heidi, when not in the office her family is out exploring all of the hiking, camping, and outdoor adventures that Vegas has to offer!
