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.

I had a very positive experience. Dr. Bontumasi took the time to explain things well and patiently answered my questions.

Everyone on staff was so comforting and friendly. We didn’t have to wait, we were seen right at our appointment time. Dr. Bontumasi was so nice and was great with my 6 month old during his visit.

We had to wait about an hour to see the doctor. The receptionist said that he was running a little behind and would only be 10 minutes. That was not accurate. The doctor wasn’t sure what was wrong with our son and ordered blood work. No follow up appointment. Was disappointed that he couldn’t give us a reason for our sons symptoms.

Brought my young son into Dr. Bontumasi and was very pleased with the visit. He clearly knows how to interact with young kids, as does his staff. They were warm and friendly, while remaining courteous and professional. While this was our first visit I look forward to utilizing Dr. Bontumasi again.
