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 was very apologetic when he was delayed by a patient appoint prior to mine. I appreciated his concern.

Once you get past the front desk, the staff are very friendly. Not sure if the front desk person was having a bad day but I was very unimpressed. She never smiled once and her tone/approach with patients was not welcoming! The nurses and doctor we very friendly and welcoming. Definitely affected my first impression of this office.

Very kind and intelligent doctor. Didn't feel judged or like he was rushing through me just to get to the next patient, which was really nice that he took the time to address everything.

This is by far the best experience I have had seeing a doctor. Dr. Bontumasi and his staff provide a very welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. My wait time was less than 5 minutes and he was very gentle and thorough with the exam.
