New Haven, CT |
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)

Very poor experience with office staff when trying to sign up a new patient

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.

She is very down to earth, friendly, and an excellent listener .I never feel rushed ando I trust her implicitly.
