Dr. Coakley and staff are by far the best professional, personable and efficient folks I have ever dealt with. I have had well over nine different surgeries over the years at four other dermatologists offices. I would highly recommend Waccamaw Dermatology and especially Dr. Coakley. A special shout out to Holly who is so good at what she does.

Been a patient of Dr. Bibb for ten years, top notch every visit, very knowledgeable and caring. I have referred many people, goes above and beyond, glad I found him when I moved here.

The staff at Waccamaw Dermatology were super kind and caring through the entire process. Everyone I interacted with at this location, and the Pawleys Island location were amazing. This could have been a much more terrifying experience had it not been for the awesome staff. I honestly couldn’t be happier with the service, and I’ve already recommended it to several friends.
