This was such a good experience for me. It was my first visit and I mixed up my appointment time and was almost two hours late. Dr. Benedetto was willing to see me. The nurse took me in immediately, I did not have to wait very long for the doctor to come into the examining room after the nurse took the initial information from me. The doctor spent all the necessary time to examine me, discuss some issues and direct me in the right direction, which at this time seems to be working and I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Benedetto for a three month continuation check up. I am so happy that I was able to meet such a fine dermatologist that just doesn't push patients through in four minutes.
