Welcome to Minnesota Dermatology! No referral is needed. We are accessible to the greater Minneapolis, Twin Cities area. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to allow for paperwork to be filled out.
You may fill out your registration form ahead of time and bring it in with you:
Please bring the following to your appointment:
- Driver's license
- Insurance card
- Medications or medication list
Upon checking in, you will be asked to pay a copay if your insurance requires it. After you see Dr. Ecker, Eric, or Laura, you will checkout at the front desk and any necessary procedures, labs, or appointments will be made for you at that time. If you do not have insurance, or if you do not have your insurance card, you will be asked to pay in full. We do offer a 20% same day payment discount, typically utilized for non-insurance (cash, check, or credit card) dermatology visits, including the visit and any necessary procedures and tests billed by us.
New patients may also choose to use our Online Consultation Service.
Please arrive just before your appointment time. Please advise the receptionist if there have been any changes to your medical history, insurance information, or address and phone numbers.

On your first visit, you will be asked to review and sign our financial/office policy. We will provide a copy of this policy to you upon request. All co-pays are due before you are seen. There is a $75 charge prior to cosmetic-only appointments, but this may be applied toward any treatment performed or products purchased. In most cases, visits are considered medical/surgical visits, are billed to insurance, and no fee other than a co-pay is required at the time of service. For example, this is true when a diagnosis has not yet been made, since professional evaluation prior to treatment is necessary to ensure its appropriateness. If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to ask.
