My experience was frustrating. I was misdiagnosed and put on an expensive medication for psoriasis when I had eczema. Even after repeated calls to the office over 3 month period to say I was not getting better. I was told to be patient. Went back to a dermatologist I had seen years ago. He took a biopsy and has prescribed the appropriate medication for eczema. I am completely clear after seeing another doctor who took the time to do a biopsy to see exactly what they were treating.

I visited Dr. Amato smonths ago and was very pleased with him, his knowledge and his service. Unfortunately my review on his pratice is based solely on the office manager, Jerry, and because of him that I will never return to this practice and would advise anyone to steer clear. He personally entered the wrong information on my account, was rude, condescending and completely inappropriate to me, and he attempted to turn a situation around on me. I am astonished and disappointed with his behavior

Doctor Amato is amazing. He is thorough, responsive and has taken the time to know me and my family. When my son had a staff infection- he and his team were the only ones who were able to manage this situation and get it under control. I am a big fan!!

Be aware that if you make an appointment with Dr. Amato for a condition other than skin cancer? you will not see Dr. Amato. You will instead see a nurse practitioner. If you try to call Dr. Amato's office to set up an appointement? you will most likely receive a recorded message and wait patiently for someone to return your call.
