She was impatient and dismissive of my concerns, insisting the problem was resolved. It wasn't. I went to another doctor who recognized the rash immediately and treated it correctly, resolving the issue permanently.

Staff, scheduling and wait times are above average. I had been seeing this doctor for over 5 years and she had always been attentive until of lately. I had to change doctors due to her ignoring a repeated concerned I had for over a year about a suspicious spot on my skin that she would occasionally burn; I finally had to insist on a biopsy as I knew something was wrong. Dr. Devaro told me she was sure it was precancerous and told me not to be worried. I told her I was sure it was squamous cancer by now. A front desk clerk called me to say it was squamous, no call or concern from the doctor. I had the cancer removed by a surgeon, one layer of inner stitches and 10 staples. Eight months later I am still recovering from scarring. I am now more assertive with all my doctors. If you feel something is wrong, insist on having biopsy early. I do not know why she didn't do it.

I waited an hour for my visit, which I never mind for a good doctor. I could hear the nurse going over my history with her in the hallway and the doctor was annoyed that I had three things to discuss with her at the visit. I assume she felt this was too much. She was in the room for less than five minutes. No bedside manner. Almost argumentative about my medical history. Developed no rapport. I would not recommend her.

My husband and both children have been going to Dr DeVaro for years. We have always been confident in her practice. She does what is necessary while being attentive to any issues both that we report, or she observes. Her office staff is both pleasant and efficient. We have no reason to consider going anywhere else for dermatology issues.
