I find that developing and maintaining a trusting and lasting doctor-patient relationship is of the utmost importance, because a strong doctor-patient relationship can help instill confidence and empower patients to have an active role in the treatment of their skin conditions.

Dr. Botumasi examined the previous procedures I had done at their office to make certain the areas treated were healing well. He, and his assistant, demonstrated great care for which I am grateful. I have been very pleased with the medical service I have received.

This doctor is excellent and thorough. In comparison to our former dermatologist, there is no comparison. He takes the time to talk to you, and the time to look at every portion of your body including your head unlike my previous doctor who was in and out very quickly so he could get on to the next customer. What a difference! As a result, he is now harder to get an appointment but worth the wait.
