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 Bontumasi’s examination was extremely thorough. He did a wonderful job of explaining things and highlighting things that I should watch for.

Great provider, always checks in with you. He is willing to take as much time as needed during an appointment but won't waste you'r time. His office staff is kind, professional and he is spot on with diagnosis/treatment. Would definitely recommend this office.

The “n/a” answers are because there hasn’t been time to know that, yet. The only thing I didn’t like is that I wish I could have gotten a sooner appointment from when I called, but it sounds like Dr. B and others are going to be in GH more in the future. Hope that helps 🤓

Everyone was friendly except the assistant was quiet not very friendly. Maybe just her personality but also maybe she had something going on and was not 100% herself. Overall it’s a good office as far as I can tell from one visit
