When we actually got to meet with Dr. Rampazzo he was very nice and competent. We did not feel rushed through the visit and he kept eye contact with us. He also said if we had any questions after the visit to reach out, which I did. He answered my follow-up visit questions through the MyChart messaging in a fairly timely manner which I greatly appreciated!

The video consult worked well for the most part to have a discussion of options. But of course the doctor was unable to palpate the area of concern to assess for pliability and elasticity of the surrounding skin.

Dr. antonio rampazzo cares for my daughter as if she was his own child. The love and compassion he shows her and our family when he cares for her is something you cant get any where else.
