Absolutely the best, if you wait then that proves she is the most highly sought after doctor; and the reason you may have to wait is that she genuinely cares about each one of her patience. So when it's your turn you get nothing short of 100% of that woman's attention, an absolute blessing to the medical profession!

I like Dr. Pesce very much. However, the wait time is RIDICULOUS. Once i waited 2 hours and was still noy the next person so i rescheduled for a morning appt. Normally go at 9:30. At this point the office had only been open an hour or so and i still wait for a good hour!! Very over booked office. Its not right.

Dr Pesce is very kind and knowledgeable. She takes time with each patient to explain what she is doing and why. And what she thinks the problems are. I have gone to her for many years and I do tell my friends and family that are looking for a dermatologist about her and her dad.

I agree with other reviewers as to the staff and wait, however, Dr. Pesce is well worth the inconvenience. She thoroughly explains everything and you are never rushed. She has also helped out with getting medicines at reduced prices. I have met with her father once, and he was also excellent.

I agree with most reviewers. Katherine Pesce herself is a good doctor and I have no complaints about her, but average wait time in that office is always long. I went for an apt the other day and after waiting 45 min, went and asked how much longer it would be and was told possibly another 30-45 min. The office staff has no idea and takes no accountability- not even an apology. I walked out.

The doctors know what they are doing, HOWEVER I will never again bring my business here due to the fact that they kept me waiting OVER AN HOUR for my appointment. This is extremely unprofessional and downright rude. Please don't even bother and take your business elsewhere because these people do not respect their clients time and this is a sign of downright disrespect.

Hello, This is Iftikhar Dr. Katherine Pesce is one of the best doctors, I have ever met. I visited her 9th March,2017 and she was very nice and helpful. She examined my skin disease very friendly manner and gave me proper medicine which will be covered by my insurance company. In addition, she gave some free medicine as part of her good will. I am satisfied by her treatment process. However, I found her receptionist unfriendly but except her everyone was very good.

Dr. Pesce comes to my place of employment each year to do skin cancer screening days and I've seen her twice and really liked her. This year, I was out on maternity leave when she came so I figured I'd make an appointment at her office. I made an appointment 1-2 months in advance and was told to pay $100 up front (even though my insurance says NOT to do that) , and upon arrival the staff had no record of me. There was no apology, no "Hey! Our bad!" Dr. Pesce as a person: great. Office:awful

Katherine is extremely caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. I have had multiple issues (basel, squamous and 2 melanomas) and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to care for me. There may be a wait, but then she gives patients all her attention and time when she is with them)

I would not recommend even trying to schedule an appointment with this doctor. The office staff is rude. IF you get through to the office and they are able to make an appointment (likely weeks from the time you call), they will double or triple book you. This office is notorious in the area for having an hour+ wait in the waiting room, then a similar wait in the exam room. There are other great dermatologists in the area who do not treat their patients this way.
