Patient Comments (3)
in Hialeah, FL |
He has no bedside manner and his staff is rude. Students preform surgery not him. Not a good environment. Waiting room was hot, crowded, and tv was too loud. Too many people there at the same time having surgery! He must pack them like sardines just to make money off insurance! Wait time was hours and you can't leave. It was horrible and he was not comforting or even nice! His staff is abrupt and pushy. No kindness just pushing you in and out like you are an inconvenience
in Port Richey, FL |
I moved to the Florida are not to long ago with a spot that was suspicious to me. My last doctor in North Carolina told me its nothing & not to worry about it. But because I am who I am & it wasn't looking/feeling right to me when I arrived in FL, I decided to get a second opinion. After weeks of research for the best out of the top 10 derm docs in Florida I decided to make a visit to Dr. Cherpelis, all I can say from here is WOW!! not only did he diagnose Skin Cancer but he found a 2nd spot!
Sarasota, FL |
Dr. Cherpelis was very kind and friendly, yet professional in his manner. He took time to explain the procedure and answer questions.
