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.

Computer was not working right so had to pay a different way. Not a problem. The front desk person was doing all she could, was not her fault.

I was very impressed! Over the years I have been to several Dermatologist offices and Dr. Bontumasi’s office was the most comfortable by far. Upon entering the office you are first met by the receptionist who is pleasant, efficient, and has an awesome attitude. The office gives the appearance of being comfortably small versus so many medical offices that are huge and uninviting.I especially liked that the receptionist greeted me, explained she would be just a moment and pointed out the directions to the coffee and the bathroom! Also, the other patients entering and leaving the office seemed very comfortable. The other clinic staff is also very pleasant and polite. Dr. B was not too clinical to be intimidating, but was informative, considerate and thorough. I will confidently refer my family and friends to Dr Bontumasi

Dr. B is very friendly he takes the time to talk with you for a few minutes before starting the procedures. He’s very thorough detailed and does a nice job of explaining things. You never feel rushed.!!
