Dr. Zaladonis is the best around. His staff is very professional and kind. I'm always greeted with a smile. If you need any help, ask for Tina. She is one of his medical assistants and has been so good to me and my family over the years.

When my daughter developed terrible eczema on her face, Dr. Zaladonis was the only derm able to provide an appointment within the same week and prescribed treatment that started working immediately. Any time I have called to make an appointment during a flare up we were accommodated very quickly. Dr. Zaladonis has an excellent bedside manner and takes the time to explain the issue and how to apply medications, the staff took notes for me to reference at home and gave me samples of medications.

I have been a patient of Dr. Zaladonis since 2005. He is very knowledgeable and competent . I would highly recommend him . His front office staff is consistently aloof and not very friendly. It is really hit or miss. Seems like the younger employees are doing you a favor by assisting you. I recently had a very unpleasant experience with a young woiman who lacked clear communication skills .A situation was escalated by her inability to listen and respond professionally.

I have been a patient of Dr. Zaladonis for many years (10+) and for good reason. He cares - about his work and about his patients. He's highly skilled and very knowledgeable. He thoroughly explains everything, and fully addresses all questions. He has all the professional traits I look for in a doctor - expert in his field with excellent soft skills: respectful, empathetic, honest, forthright and just very pleasant to talk with. Highly recommend!

He was good when I was a teenager. But then I went as an adult, and he didn’t listen at all to what I was saying. My acne wasn’t “enough” to him. It was frustrating and I will never go back. The staff is also very snobby. Find another dermatologist.
