I’m not referring her to any of my friends or family because she piseed me off, has no bedside manners and treated me like I didn’t understand anything she has said. I shared my concern that I was having pain in the area on my surgery and the spot was ozzing yellow.She went to how long it’s going to heal. I said mame this pissed her of and told me not to call her mame. That was disrespectful. In America this is respect. I said again told her I understood the healing process my issue is the the yellow weeping and had pai. She began working on my area without gloves and or washing her hands. She told me she washed them in the hallway, but she also touched the door to come in my room. She then started repeating the same issues she wanted to. When I let her know I understood the healing process, she said I am not talking to you. That I can leave if I wanted, I told her she started this mess and I’m not going anywhere. I may be old but not stupid and I do need my concerns addressed.

Hands down, the best Mohs Surgeon in all of Delaware. Completely removed the Melanoma on my shoulder. After a couple of weeks I can barely see where she cut. Thank you for coming to Middletown.

I’m new to the area and so glad I found Dr Jennifer LaRusso. She is such a good doctor, she takes her time explaining everything. I found her to be very thorough so kind and caring. So knowledgeable. Her staff could not do enough to make me comfortable. I have recommend her to my children she is that good. Simply the best !

I am a patient of Sunwise Dermatology and all staff are wonderful from front desk staff to clinical staff and Dr. Larusso is wonderful. I have taken 2 of my children there as well, one for acne and the other for a mole on his chin which was removed with such precision that there is no scar. I will continue to go to Sunwise for all our Dermatology needs.

I had skin cancer by my eye and it was a fairly large piece. I had about 2 1/2 inches of stitches after the surgery. After the stitches were taken out you could hardly see that I even had surgery. The best thing about Dr. LaRusso is she treats you like a family member. She is genuinely concerned with your overall skin care. I do landscaping for a living and she is on me about not wearing enough sunscreen. I would not choose any doctor over her.

Very compassionate, took the time and listened to my concerns at my visit. She made me feel like family from the first visit and now I have my friends and family following up with her. She completed my MOHs in January and my scar is almost invisable. Just an all around great Dermatologist and surgeon. Highly recommend

Dr Larusso is a very respectful and caring physician. She listens to what is going on and goes through every treatment and options that are available. She is very trustworthy and she made me feel like an actual person not just the next person who is going to make her money! I recommend her and her entire practice Sunwise Dermatology.

Wow, reading one of the previous reviews makes me wonder if we saw the same doctor! Dr. LaRusso was so meticulous when it came to my surgery I felt like she was performing it on a relative. She did everything she could to prevent scarring and was so nice and professional. Pay no attention to the hate, it smells fishy.

My son was seen by Dr. LaRusso recently in her new Middletown office. It was delightful to be greeted so personally and efficienciently by the front office staff. Only to get better with her direct medical team who took us back to gather the concerns I had for my 2 year old. Dr. LaRusso spent a good deal of time with us answering every crazy first time mommy questions I had about his delicate skin. This experience could not have gone better.

I visited this individual in June of 2015. I only just found this site, which is why my review is late. She is incredibly rude, condescending and absolutely unhelpful. I came to her because I have contact dermatitis (contact allergies) and after asking for help, she asked me why I was wasting her time. She kept telling me I was "dark" and that's all it was. She's just a terrible human being. She spent about 3 minutes with me, and then left. Don't waste your time or money going to this jerk.

Recently had the Moh's surgery. Very satisfied with the care, concern, and quality of care. As close to a Marcus Welby type experience as once can get in today's Medical arena. It was wonderful to be treated like a person and not a factory experience. Surgery scar looks great. Dr. LaRusso takes time to consider the best outcome. Could not be happier with my experience.
