Have been seeing Dr Inzerillo for about 10 years. He did my right knee replacement and I see him for my left knee also. He is kind and patient. Never rushes you. Takes the time to know you as a person and understand your needs. No pressure for surgery until you are ready. He is a gem.

Dr. Blume is a wonderful dermatologist. He has excellent manners, gets right to the point of the visit and is very quick to get me in and out of the office. He has removed questionable skin growths so that they have not left a scar. His prescriptions have always remedied my issues.
