She is a great Doctor. Kind, knowledgeable with excellent bedside manners. I will recommend Dr Ciocca without reservations.

Staff extremely rude, over 30 minutes on hold to talk to somebody and over 1 hr to talk to a manager which decided to transfer me to a nurse without listening to my concern/complaint.

I LOVED THIS OFFICE, THE STAFF IS VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. THE WAITING WAS REASONABLE DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF PATIENTS THEY SEE PER DAY. THE DOCTOR WAS VERY NICE TO ME AND ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS. I'VE BEEN BACK FOR MY FOLLOW UP APPTS AND I WILL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR TO ALL MY FRIENDS.

Very unprofessional front staff. I waited for 50 minutes and when I asked the front desk how much longer. I was told that I had to wait another 30 minutes!!! I pulled my son from school for nothing! What a waste of our time!!! Never again will I make an appointment with this office. They really need to learn how to communicate with the patients.

Wanted to have daughter's acne checked out & advice given; 9:15am appt; arrived at 9am; handed over insurance new patient paperwork and still 45 minutes later - not called in; (3) other clients arrived after me and were seen before us; needed to get child back to school and all the front desk staff said was they were on hold waiting to verify my insurance; are you serious? So wasted my time and my child's time. We're in Miami folks; competition all over; time to check out the next option.Wakeup

I never seen to Dr. Ciocca, very frustrating experience I made an appointment with Dr. Ciocca and was seen by her physician's assistant or ARNP no by Dr. Ciocca. The staff should de professional and be sure if the client or patientis agree to see ARPNP or PA, because as a patient we have to be informed and participate in treatment decsion, I dont konw if you are informed the patient's rights. My opinion about Dr. Ciocca is on base of the ARNP/PA.

Dr. Ciocca seems to be a very nice lady but she is not a very competent Doctor. After spending not more than 10 minutes with us, she was out. She politely listened to me but paid no attention. Her incompetent diagnosis of my daughter's serious skin infection as a regular pimple was strange. She told me it was nothing to worry about. We looked for 2nd and 3rd opinions, ordered a blood test and the treatment required antibiotics. So, no, I cannot recommend her as a doctor.

I am unable in good conscience to recommend this doctor to anyone. My experience in trying to secure a prescription was unacceptable. Several phone calls were ignored both by myself and my insurance company who later sent me a letter saying they could not get the office staff to return their phone calls. I called and complained and asked to speak to an office manager but was again ignored and again I never received a return call. I finally gave up and decided to look for a new dermatologist.
