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 Dermatolgy and especially Dr. Coakley. A special shout out to Holly who is so good at what she does.

Everyone was so professional, friendly and went out of their way to make me comfortable. The staff, PA’s and Mohs surgeons are definitely top notch. Highly recommend if you want the best care!

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 Pawley’s 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.
