I am very pleased with my 1st time visit with Dr. Kontos. He was very open to answering my questions and detailed in his exam. He was very careful and gentle while working on a spot very close to my eye. He made the procedure painless also. The staff were all friendly.

The staff, Kristin and Dr Kontos are all amazing.
in Naples, FL |
The staff is wonderful! I think he is a fabulous doctor. I highly recommend his Bonita office! My experience has been that most dermatologists overbook their appointments to keep the cash flow coming in. Dr. Kontos and his staff took the time to see me, answer my questions and make sure that I was satisfied, before exiting the exam.
in Cape Coral, FL |
The atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. The staff all work well together and appear happy in their work. I have had several MOHS surgeries, all done by Dr. Kontos. He is very thorough and I have great respect and trust in him. I would highly recommended him.
in Fort Myers, FL |
First of all the staff were very courteous and professional. I went for a skin cancer screening and waited for less than 10 minutes to be seen. Having had many skin cancer screenings through the years with other Dermatologists I can say that Doctor Kontos did an extremely thorough screening and he is very informative and a pleasant personality as well. Dr. Kontos is also highly qualified in his field as he is Mohs surgery Board certified. Excellent Doctor, great patient care, highly recommended!
