"I had a mole that had been bothering me for almost 2 weeks and it was off within minutes of my appointment. Julie is so sweet and friendly while having a passion for what she does. Highly recommend!"

"This is the first doctor I've been to since going to my Pediatrician two years ago. I've never really felt comfortable going to the doctor but I had a rash on my stomach and arms and decided that enough was enough. The Nurse I met was VERY nice and greeted me with a smile (I believe her name was Gosha). When the doctor came in a few minutes later she instantly made me feel comfortable by her warm welcome and positive attitude. She checked my rashes and decided to prescribe me something, which was sent right to my Pharmacy so I could pick it up on my way home! I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of Dermatologist! My rash is getting better even after just 5 applications of the ointment!"

"Dr. Cantatore was so wonderful and made me feel so comfortable! I was a little nervous/embarrassed about having a whole-body mole check, but she was incredibly kind and informative. She took time to explain things to me clearly and did not rush through my visit. I will absolutely return to see her again in the future."
