My family and I have been fortunate enough to have Dr. John Garafalo as our dermatologist for many, many years. He is knowledgeable, intelligent, sincere, and has a wonderful "bedside manner." I highly recommend him.

Dr. GAROFALO is a patient, caring doctor. He puts you at ease from the beginning of your appointment. He is very thorough in his exam and explains everything he is doing. I get very nervous going to doctors and have to say he made me feel very comfortable. He never rushed me and spent the time answering my many questions. He has the reputation of being a top notch dermatologist and I can understand why.
