Dr Magnino was excellent! I went in there with a long list. As I hadn’t been in 2 years to Forefront. This was my first time with her! I absolutely love ❤️ her! I want to use her for all my future appointments! So kind! She listens and explains as she’s going!

Although Dr, Magnino is obviously knowledgeable in recognizing skin conditions, my visits seem so rushed in order for her to see her other patients, I presume. Therefore, I do not feel we have time to ask questions or possibly treat some other matter I might have. As I do all healthcare professionals, I understand their tremendous workload and dedication to providing care but nevertheless, I feel too rushed to be checked, interact, and for me to be gone.

When I was in my early 30s about 30 years ago, my former dermatologist, who retired a few years ago, saved my life by discovering melanoma at at early stage. I am happy to have found another wonderful dermatologist in Dr. Magnino!

UPDATE: Doctor Magnino called me back and addressed my concerns. The effect seems to be pretty normal, and as she explained now, they should go away and not leave any scarring. My complaint was that she was extremely quick. I wish she had slowed down a bit, and talked about what she was finding on my skin as she examined me. She did give me a leaflet. The worst part was being sprayed with liquid nitrogen (I believe, she didn't specify what it was) on my nose and lip. She just said: are you ready? And sprayed. I asked what to expect afterward, she said it would go away. Well, a few hours later I had a blister on my lip, which I tried to protect but ended up bursting. I'm applying neosporin to avoid infection. Both spots look and feel pretty hurt a couple of days later.

I think the interactions with the doctor and her expertise are very good. However, I have had trouble with the filling of prescriptions and responsiveness of the office. Also, I have the feeling of being rushed and that there are time limits on appointments, which compromises the communication.
