He is a talented surgeon-can hardly tell a mole was removed. Very professional and nice. Recommend him highly!
Dr. Wittenberg is the absolute best surgeon for Mohs surgery! He is meticulous and any scarring is minimal. He is so kind and calls the evening of the surgery to make sure all is well. His staff is amazing as well. They are so personable and gentle in every task they have to do.
Dr. Wittenberg is a skilled and caring professional. I had several large areas on my face requiring complete and very careful removal. He accomplished this with great skill, and the results are fantastic. I highly recommend Dr. Wittenberg.Terry K. Kaiser, DVM
Always appreciate Dr. Wittenberg, his care and his staff!!
Dr. and his staff are wonderful. They are very caring. Dr Wittenburg is very thorough, and makes you feel very comfortable.
He is wonderful and so compassionate.
The staff were considerate and knowledgeable. Dr. Wittenburg explained everything and answered all my questions. It was a very positive experience.
Great doctor and staff. Very thorough and professional.
Fantastic dermatologist who is very knowledgeable. Offers options for treatment and involves me in the decision making. At the top of his field of Moh's surgery. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Wittenberg and his nurses make you feel like more than a number or a condition. He is very careful and thorough. His entire team is outstanding and very hard working. I have been there as a patient and the loved one of a patient. They always make you feel welcome, see to your comfort and care.I appreciate them so much!!
simply outstanding and so is the staff
Can’t say enough nice comments about Dr Wittenburg and his staff. How many Doctors and their staff remember you from year to year, remember what you talk about every year when you are only there once a year? I can tell you from experience that not many do. I wish I could recall Dr. Wittenburg’s assistant’s name, I am old so forgive me, but she is from Wall, SD, and has the greatest personality. Surgically they are a great team too, took care of the spot on my bottom eyelid without a hitch, my eyelid doesn’t droop or look different so I am pleased. I give them a five out of five stars.
The dr and staff were excellent ! The dr called me later in the evening to make sure I was stable and doing fine!!!
Dr. Wittenberg was so kind and compassionate during my visit/procedure. Always making sure that I was comfortable and not feeling any pain. When the procedure was done I was feeling a little shaky and he walked me out to the waiting room where my husband was, ensuring that I didn’t fall. His staff also needs recognition as they too were very compassionate, making sure I was comfortable.
Very friendly Dr. & staff. I would recommend to anyone.
Words cannot express how grateful I am for the exceptional care I’ve received from Dr Greg Wittenberg and Dr Linda Fromm and the entire staff @ The Skin Institute (@Rapid City Medical Center). Feeling really blessed to be cared for by such a competent and equally important compassionate group.

Dr. Thornburg has welcomed a national role for Allergan as speaker, consultant, and instructor to other dermatology groups throughout the United States.

Dr. Thornburg has been selected to be a media expert for the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) on all topics regarding skin. This is a national position, and she has had opportunities to represent dermatologists throughout the United States.

Made for Shade is the heart and soul of Dr. Lycia Thornburg, who founded this in 2006, along with her partners at Rapid City Medical Center Skin Institute.  Dedicated to sheltering children from the damaging effects of the sun while fostering a love of outdoor play, Dr. Thornburg, and her team of volunteers, with the Made for Shade Foundation, have funded and supported over 34 shade structures in the Black Hills.  Along with prevention of skin cancer, Dr. Thornburg is focused on research and development with her partner Dr. Melody Eide and Dr. Blake Jones, on a study to evaluate biomarkers in patients with cancer.  This is an area of her practice that she is very passionate about and is attentive to her patients and community on the prevention and early detection of skin cancer.

Her favorite quote is by Maya Angelou: “At the end of the day people won’t remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.” She draws on this philosophy daily in how she cares for her patients – providing the best treatment available, educating patients on the tools necessary to achieve and maintain healthy skin, and never forgetting the medical importance of the skin to overall patient-health. At the end of the day, Dr. Thornburg makes her patients, whether medical or cosmetic, feel like red carpet guests, as she honors their inner beauty.

I appreciate Doc’s knowledge and ability to explain her procedures. So thankful for the care I get each time I visit.
she is extremely nice but it seems the things she gave me is not working 100%. Also, she knew there was nothing going on one part of my body but yet she looked there. I don't know it is probably what she needed to do or something.
Dr. Thornburg is the BEST! Not only is she patient and kind, she treats each person as if they were the most important person she will see today. Dr. Thornburg takes the time to educate and gives great recommendations. #lyciathornburgmd

Dr. Sage is the best. He is thorough and so careful. Never had a better cancer surgeon.
Dr. Sage found a rare skin cancer inside my face. He and his team made it a priority to act quickly and removed it completely within a week. Dr Sage also came in on his day off to complete my surgery and make sure I was set up for success. Nurses and staff are so friendly and care about you. I thank God for a skilled, knowledgeable, and caring doctor.
I'm normally not the reviewing type. But having just come from seeing Dr. Robert Sage in Rapid City, I simply had to express my gratitude and appreciation. Having seen several Dermatologists in my life time, I speak with credence and credulity. Both He and his staff were awsome. Thank You Sir !
Dr Sage and his staff are absolutely amazing. I had a procedure done the today and everything was awesome! If you need a great Dermatologist I highly recommend him!
Dr. Sage was amazing and great with making sure I was comfortable and okay. My body decided to dissolve the dissolvable stitches too early and short notice (11pm on a Wednesday night) was able to get me stitched back up. Will be recommending him for any and all dermatology
Dr. Sage is caring and talented. I refer people to him all the time because I know they are going to get the BEST care. Personally, I would never go see anyone else.
Dr. Sage and staff are very caring and professional. I was seen on time for my first appointment and he took care of all the necessary procedures in his office on that initial visit. He will remain the go-to doctor for any and all skin care issues of my family.
If you want a doctor who absolutely cares, listens to his patients, and knows what he is doing,..This is the Doctor to see!!He treated us with the utmost respect and care! After bad advice from a general nurse practitioner, my husband was in a bad way & I felt helpless! He seen him on a last second notice and continued to treat him with great success until he was healed..We can’t say enough about how impressed we are with Dr. Sage.!!! His staff is remarkable as well, Thank you all!
