Staff is courteous and my experience was excellent.

As always, absolutely the most wonderful experience Truly relaxing. Sam Beausoliel is amazing.

This review is for Dr. Ofodile ... who I think is the best! What does one look for in a dermatologist? Knowledge, thoroughness, patience, friendliness. Dr. Ofodile is all that. She takes her time, answers questions and offers good, common-sense advice. So nice and helpful. They make a super team!

Alpharetta is a part of the Atlanta Metropolitan area and is located in northern Fulton County, GA. 

The area that is present-day Alpharetta was originally peopled by Cherokee Indians. The Cherokees in Georgia were forcibly relocated to Indian Territory in Oklahoma in the 1830s, and this made room for white settlers to move in. 

One of the first landmarks in the area was the New Prospect Campground, a Methodist camp ground near a natural spring, near present-day downtown Alpharetta. It served as a trading post in later years. 

The name Alpharetta has been conjectured to honor the fictional Indian girl Alfarata, from the song “The Blue Juniata.” However, it is more likely that it comes from two Greek words: “alpha” meaning “first” and “retta” meaning “town.” 

The Alpharetta homepage says describes the Alpharetta community like this:
