Dr. Rustad has obviously been treating patients with psoriasis for a long time. After many years of different doctors, different creams, and frustration, Dr. Rustad was able to clear up my psoriasis easily within a month. Thank you for getting my skin to finally stop itching and to be clear and smooth.

I have been seeing Dr. Rustad for close to 30 years, starting out with acne as a teen. I’m a Registered Nurse and know the importance of a good skin specialist. I have sent my children and husband to him, as well. Dr. Rustad is an intelligent doctor with a great bedside manner! I will continue to utilize his expertise and recommend him to family and friends. Thanks for the good care, Dr. Rustad!

Came in with really bad acne on my cheeks and forehead and after a few weeks on the medicine prescribed to me my acne had gone away and had left almost no scaring!

I came to see Dr. Rustad about 25 yrs ago before I moved away., I have since returned and remembered the wonderful job that he had done on my skin imperfections, and so I came back and am still impressed with his technique and skill.

I came to Dr. Rustad at 40 years old with bad acne breakouts. He prescribed me Sulfacetamide cream and it has been a life changer. I no longer get breakouts and it leaves my skin soft and blemish free. I wish I would of came to him 25 years earlier. This stuff is amazing. Thank you Dr. Rustad.

When I came into Rustad Dermatology I had psoriasis plaques on the majority of my body, all of which were raised, cracked, dry, and very painful. Using only the topical medications prescribed by Dr. Rustad, as well his instructions concerning baths, oils, lotions, and UV exposure I was able to become almost 90% free of psoriasis in only two weeks. This is amazing considering other dermatologists have wanted to prescribe me oral medications without high hopes of success.

STARTED TREATING FOR PSORIASIS A FEW MONTHS AGO. Dr. Rustad and staff have been very helpful in treatment plan and care and also with education about psoriasis. Had been treating with other practice with no results. Have had great results in just a short time. The whole staff is very friendly. Would strongly recommend Rustad Dermatology.
K. M.

Went to another doctor for my psoriasis and it didnt get any better after using his medications for 4 months. Came here and already has improved more in 2 weeks than it did in the 4 months.

R.M.
I recommend going to Dr. Rustad because he is simply the whole package!! He is genuinely honest and cares about you and what’s going on and he is not only the best dermatologist but one of the sweetest people I have met and gotten to know. I love going to my appointments because it’s like talking to a friend. What an inspiration he is to me, and many others. He truly just wants the best for you and wants to help!!!

When I came to Dr Rustad I had developed bad acne. Him and his staff were knowledgeable and friendly. They gave me hope that there was a solution. My acne has cleared 100%. Then recently I had an allergic reaction to a face product. Once again they knew what needed done and it cleared up. On top of that they squeezed me in that day on a Friday afternoon because I was so panicked. I would recommend him to anyone!!!!
Sydney S.
I am so happy that I came to see Dr Rustad . He has healed up the rash that Ive had for years , in a week. I cant believe how great my skin looks already. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a Dermatologist!!.
Christina Workman
My acne and blackheads are becoming a problem of the past. Thanks!

If you are looking for a quality dermatologist that will charge you a fraction of any one else in town…then go to Dr. Rustad. He offers a cash price that is 10% of what most would pay going through their insurance. I had over two dozen spots removed from my back and a few months later you couldn’t see any scaring. Very professional care at a great price. He is in Omaha on Monday afternoons.
Steve Royer

Wendy Rogers
I was able to be scheduled for appointments very quickly! The doctor diagnosed me quickly, and then within 4 visits my skin was cleared! Thanks to the kind and helpful staff who made this process simple and fast.
L.D.

I’ve had warts and cysts removed by Dr. Rustad. I always see him on my first visit for something and the problem gets taken care of then. Nothing has ever come back and I don’t have any scars on my hands to show that there was anything there in the first place.

Ryan Sump

i was able to get into Dr. Rustad right away, I have been fighting a foot issue since Sept of this year in and out of other Dr offices taking meds but finally was treated with the right thing and it is gone. All i took was a creme .

B Cole
After going to different dermatologists for many years and not seeing results, I finally decided to switch to Dr. Rustad. After only about 4 weeks of using his treatment, I saw significant improvement in my acne. After going here for almost 4 months, my face is almost always clear and I am very happy with the results.
Abigail M.
I have been bringing my teenagers to Dr. Rustad for a couple of months now and the results are fantastic. Without using hormones, my kids are seeing their acne clear. The regiment is easy for them to follow. Great, friendly staff here too!
Robin Poole
I have been fighting this skin problem on my nose for over 5 years. I was going to a different clinic and they just kept freezing it and it never went away so I decided to try doctor Rustad office and wow sure wish I would’ve done that earlier found out that I have something different and now have been getting the proper treatment and now it’s almost gone. Thank you so much
Sherry Wabs
Dr. Rustad is great and always explains why he is doing what he is doing. He answers all of my questions that I bring into his office.
Colin K.
I’ve been going to Dr. Rustad for quite a few years now I want to say how pleased I am with his work. He has removed a cancerous lesion from my lip & I have no scar tissue. He has removed numerous moles in different areas that were not cancerous. His fees are very reasonable. He is one of the best in Lincoln & I recommend him highly.
Rita Chauza
Dr. Rustad was able to see me within two days of my original call! He was quick, effective, and clearly knowledgeable. I’ve seen incredible improvements in only three weeks. Can’t recommend him enough!
Megan M.

I had a great experience and got great results!!

Kaley Stokey
I had a cancer on my left ear. Dr. Rustad removed the cancer and did a flap. I am very happy with it. Good care.
William Armstrong

In the fall of 2018 I began to notice dry blisters all over my hands and feet. I went to my doctor who immediately sent me to a dermatologist. That dermatologist couldn’t tell me what was wrong. They gave me three separate rounds of steroids which cleared it up but when the steroid wore off the blisters would come back even worse each time. I had to have help and my secretary suggested Dr. Rustad. I got an appointment immediately and in less than five minutes Dr. Rustad diagnosed me as having psoriasis . He began treating me and I got better. Now he has a new treatment for me and after using this treatment for only five days my hands are completely cleared of the blisters from psoriasis. I can’t thank Dr. Rustad enough and can only say that anyone suffering from psoriasis needs to visit Dr. Rustad. You really don’t need to take those expensive prescriptions!

My teenage son was suffering from severe acne to the point it was affecting his day to day routine and sadly he was being bulled at school. I found Dr Rustad online and from the reviews he was highly recommended. I called and was able to schedule appointment the same week. We have been seeing Dr Rustad for the last 5 months. We feel like family every time we go. Office staff is always very friendly, fast check-in and check-out. Nursing staff is outstanding always friendly and very educated. Dr Rustad is a kind hearted man who is very dedicate to his work and his clients. Dr Rustad is very informative he explains everything and the type of treatment he will be performing. Over the last 5 months my son’s skin is a million times better, we still have a ways to go due to the type of acne he has but to see my son smile and see his self-confidence bloom is the most rewarding thing a mother could ask for. Side Note: no more bullying at school he now received compliments

I have struggled with acne for years. It seemed like I tried everything, but nothing worked. I came to see Dr. Rustad and I saw my acne improve within the first couple of weeks. Great Doctor and great experience!
M.S.

Very fast and positive results, almost immediate growth!

B.R
Dr. Rustad was able to find a way to clear my cystic acne with out using accutane, hormones, or other harsh medications. I had visited other dermatologists who had told me that these types of medications would be my only option, but Dr. Rustad had other ideas that were very successful! I thought my face would be permanently scarred, but after visiting Dr. Rustad, he was able to find the right course of treatment to clear my skin and left my face scar free. I can’t recommend him enough!
B. Roe
Rustad Dermatology is great! I went somewhere before that did not clear my acne, and Rustad fixed me right up! HIGHLY recommend.
E.Y.

Dr. Rustad is an amazing Dermatologist. I wish I had before pictures to share, but I was so embarrassed about the condition of my face (rosacea & acne) I would not take a picture and completely avoided any pictures being taken of me, seriously it was bad! Today, I’m a different woman. Thank you Dr. Rustad!!

T.D.
I have been seeing the dermatologist for about a 1 year and couple months and i have seen a fantastic result and it gets better and better everyday using the the face shampoo and the compound cream and i will use it till the acne is gone.

I have been going to Dr. Rustad for many years and he is far and away the best dermatologist around. He can see you within days instead of waiting weeks or months. He knows exactly what needs to be done to treat your skin problem and gives prescriptions that immediately fix the problem. I love going to a knowlegable doctor and not going to the emergency room where they aren’t sure what to do. I had a rash that persisted for weeks and I saw him within one day and the problem cleared up within 5 days. Everyone who comes here will get the fastest and best care anywhere else.

Lee Witzel
Dr. Rustad is gentle and kind. Getting an appointment is easy and usually within one week. His treatments including removal of skin related cancers is done in the office and saved us thousands of dollars in potential hospital costs. He has pioneered treatment options that make this saving possible and he guarantees a 100% cure. For my cancer this trend has held true. Dr. Rustad reports that none of his other patients have had a reoccurence. With my success, I find that totally believable.
P.A.
I have been a patient of Dr. Rustad’s for at least 5 years. As a fair-skinned redhead with allergies, he has treated a number of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis and friable nails. Dr. Rustad uses a variety of treatments to clear the issue including steroids or compound prescriptions. Once the condition is under control, he offers simple methods of treatment that do not require a prescription. Sometimes the treatment is something so simple as washing with a bath oil, keeping hands out of water and away from chemicals, or an application of an over the counter nail treatment for brittle nails. If I cannot find the recommended product at my local drugstore, I have found it available on-line with little or no difficulty. Dr. Rustad does not prescribe drugs that compromise my immune system now or cause long-term side effects. I am grateful that he looks after my well-being!
P.K.
I started coming here mid-summer and was cleared up by the time school started! I have no scarring and wasn’t put on any hormones. I feel great!
C.G.
Started going here after my acne started to flare up pretty badly, after 2 weeks of Rustad’s help my acne was not only better but staying clear. It assisted in my acne and my complexion overall. The staff is also very friendly and answer all my questions with great knowledge. I would not want to be going anywhere else!
Hanna S.
I got right in and they took care of my needs right away, they got it right the first time so there was no need to schedule any follow ups. Problem was solved.
Jake K.
I have been seeing Dr.Rustad for a little over a month and a half now and my skin has improved quite a bit. The visits are a little painful with the extractions and what not, but I understand that it’s necessary, and I appreciate the time and care that is given to me.
M.G.
My adult acne cleared up so quickly, I was really impressed with my results. After just 4 visits my skin is 100% better and I don’t need to return for another appointment for 3 months, and all this was done without the use of hormone treatment. I only wish I had come to see Dr. Rustad early!
C. K.
Great procedure! Got in fast and got immediate care from the Doctor. Thank you, Doc!

I had been dealing with acne since I was in the 7th grade (I’m currently in my 20’s) and had tried everything under the sun to get rid of the problem. I had been to several other dermatologists who had prescribed different topical and oral medications, but none of them got rid of my acne. After no success with prescriptions, I tried Proactive, Lovely Skin products, and other various creams and washes. I went to one more dermatologist who recommended Accutane, which is a drug that treats acne internally. I did not feel comfortable using that and stopped seeing that doctor. I continued to read on the subject, and finally came to the conclusion that my acne was probably from a hormonal imbalance and would have to be fixed with some type of hormonal treatment. My mom suggested I go to one more doctor, and I reluctantly went to see Doctor Rustad. Immediately upon seeing me he made it clear that he intended to fix the problem without wasting any time. He was very blunt about things, and answered any questions I had. He also informed me that Accutane was a horrible way to treat acne, and that his treatment had nothing to do with hormones. I was skeptical about some of his methods, but decided to go ahead and follow his instructions. I began using an oral medication and a couple other prescriptions. I had never tried any of the prescriptions before, but was able to call the office and get any help I needed about how to use them and what to expect once I started using them. Initially I became worried about the drying effect the medication was having on my skin, but Dr. Rustad informed me that was normal and essential to clearing away the infection from the acne. I also did not fully understand how sensitive my skin was to sun while taking the antibiotics, and as a result got an extremely irritating sunburn on my face and neck. The nurse helped me find a sunscreen that took care of any future problems. In addition to the at-home treatment, I also went into the office weekly for extractions, where he removed the acne using a column extractor (a small hand tool). While this treatment was briefly uncomfortable, I could see positive results only a few days after the extractions. Eventually my appointments decreased to monthly ones, and in less than a year my skin was clear. I was so impressed with the results that I was surprised that I had not heard of Dr. Rustad earlier. He was different from every other dermatologist I had been to. Also, unlike some of the medicines I had tried previously, His medications were never painful to apply. He and his staff were always inviting and helpful. I no longer have to wear makeup and don’t have to waste time on a long morning regimen of creams and medicines. Going to Rustad dermatology was one of the best decisions I have made.

Waiting time was long, but Dr Rustad is very knowledgeable and took good care of me.
Chris Junker

My acne was so bad, and I was starting to get really bad scaring, but after my treatments I have almost no acne! I didn’t have to use accutane, and my face healed so fast!

Layne Storrs

I am an LPN and spend a lot of time in gloves, so when I started seeing Dr. Rustad my hands were horrible. They were red, inflamed to the point that they looked like sausages, painful and oh how they itched, but with the help of Dr. Rustad they are 90% better and I am not embarrassed by my hands anymore. I wasn’t pushed off to a PA I was totally cared for by Dr Rustad at every visit it was refreshing and I will recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr Rustad for all you have done.

S.H.

Dr. Rustad gave the correct and accurate diagnosis on day one concerning my Granuloma Annulare. I got fast and great treatment thanks to his knowledge and expertise! Don’t go anywhere else!!

K.B.

I had basal cell carcinoma surgery on my forehead in July 2018. My forehead is 100% free of cancer and also free of a scar!! I am indebted to Dr. Rustad’s experience and expertise.

Jeannette Christianson
My experiences with Dr. Rustad have been very good. Appointments are available without needing to wait for weeks or even months. There have been some fairly long waits in the waiting room, but the flip-side of that is his thoroughness in the examination room. Already at my first appointment he took the time to remove numerous keratoses from my face and upper body, and his pricing policy made it possible to do all that needed to be done. He also removed a basal cell carcinoma from my nose, and was able to verify by lab analysis during the time of the procedure that he had gotten it all, so I wouldn’t need to make a second trip for a repeat procedure. It turned out well, just like he guaranteed it would, saying he has a 100% success rate with such things, and has done thousands of them.
P.H.
They were able to fit my appointment in vary quickly. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and I got a direct diagnosis and prescription that worked right away!

I have been going to Dr. Rustad for over 20 years, and always have great results.

I have had several procedures at Rustad dermatology, and have been pleased with them all. I have been at the Omaha office and the Lincoln office, the staff at both locations are very friendly and helpful.

The doctor did surgery on a cancer that was on my hand and he did an excellent job. He has been giving me cortisone shots also. It looks and feels much better.
Sherry Lankford
I would recommend Rustad Dermatology to anyone. They were able to get me in for an appointment within a few days. They were also able to perform my procedure on the first day without having to make another appointment.

Dr. Rustad has helped me to combat my acne. It is getting better by the day and I can’t wait to see how my face looks in the end. I highly recommend Dr.Rustad.

M.J.

Dr. Rustad was able to get me in the same week that I called. The staff is friendly and helpful! My acne and acne scars have almost disappeared quickly and effortlessly. I feel comfortable using the medicines because they aren’t harsh, but they show quick results. Overall a great experience.

Kassidy
I have been going to Dr. Rustad for several years and have been very pleased with his services. Recently, I had a fast growing skin cancer. Before I knew what it was, I was encouraged by the receptionist to make an appointment as soon as I could. I am grateful for that as they got me in right away. The surgery to remove it was done immediately and will little scarring. I enjoy the staff and the advice I have received has been excellent. I highly recommend the services of Dr. Rustad’s office.
Steve Welton

My experience as Rustad Dermatology has been life changing. After suffering from acne for over 7 years, getting local acne surgery and a prescribed medication changed everything. It feels incredible to finally have a clear face after years of dealing with acne. My only regret was that I didn’t seek treatment sooner. Getting treated stopped my acne and prevented future scarring. The staff are friendly, and I am very satisfied with my experience.
