I had two (2) Mohs procedures, neck and face. From the time I first went to the office for a consultation until my stiches were removed, I found the staff and Dr. Giancola to be professional, friendly, and extremely efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Giancola.

Dr G is a top-notch, caring and professional doctor! His manner of truly understanding the patient and his needs is rare and appreciated! If the skin problem is serious, he’ll tell you; conversely, if the issue is less serious and “can wait” due to a personal schedule, he will tell you... He cares about YOU!

I was taken early and treated very professionally. Dr. Giancola explained what he was going to do prior to the procedure (Mohs surgery). The nurse were also highly professional and answered any question that I raised. A very well run office with first-rate treatment.

Excellent physician. He is both personable and professional. He listens and answers all questions and is calm and reassuring. He teaches both his staff and, at least in my case, his patients as he performs his procedures. I wouldn't go anywhere else for a Mohs.

Dr. G removed some cancer cells from inside my ear this week. Each time before starting the procedure he made sure I was comfortable and aware of the measures he was taking to remove the cancer cells. Thx Doc
