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 have been dealing with chronic atopic eczema for several years. I had a massive flare and took a chance on Dr. Bontumasi (I live in IL but am in MI right now). He's a pretty intense guy which is usually off-putting to me, but his bedside manner and sense urgency had an undertone of genuine care. I could tell he is smart as a whip and very current on his knowledge. I never give 5 stars but he and his staff totally earned it. His fix is working too. And I guess that's the most important part.

I have been seeing Dr. Bontumasi for for my annual mole check and I am extremely happy. His office staff is friendly & courteous always. I am seen at my appointment time. He explains things well and gives me all the information I need regarding any procedures he is suggesting and my options. So glad I changed from my previous skin specialist to him!

This is Philip Hollar, not Carol Hollar. Carol has never been a patient at your office. My experience was good.

The place that called me to get me my prescription from a 313 area code sent my prescription locally. The local provider said it was $600 for a tube of cream?

The front staff had many people to deal with at the same time, did a nice job and was polite. I was brought back to the room quickly and Dr. B was informative and very gentle. That was my first visit and I will return for routine care. Thank you.

This was a follow up check up and I mistakenly arrived 15 min late. They accommodated my blunder and I was able to have the checkup with only a short wait and nobody made any comments about it.
