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.

I am a patient of Dr. DeVaro's. She has seen my husband and me for several different things. She is agressive in treatment and intent on getting to the solution of whatever issue is at hand. I appreciate her honesty and thorough treatment. Her staff is also amazing and always friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. DeVaro and staff!

Dr. Devaro is the absolute best! She found a spot on my scalp, which luckily turned out not to be melanoma. I often have questions about my skin (I am freckled and fair) and she's thorough with her answers. I consider myself lucky to have found her and highly recommend her to anyone!!
