I see Dr. DeStefano in Port Charlotte. She is a very good Dr. Takes her time explaining things and is willing to provide free samples if needed. She is very pleasant and personable. My only complaint would be the length of waiting time. I know Dr's have to see numerous patients to cover costs but waiting over an hour is a bit much...

Friendly. Caring. Kind. Compassionate.

Professional and friendly approach that got the desired results! Also helped in finding an affordable drug to treat the problem when insurance made the first choice unaffordable.
in Punta Gorda, FL |
My wife & I set appts with her every winter when we come down to Florida to have full body skin exams to check for any pre-cancerous lesions. She's found several which our Dermatologist back in Wisconsin wouldn't remove because of concerns about Medicare paying for the removal. Dr. DeStefano has no reservations about removing these which she found. She's excellent. Wouldn't think of going somewhere else. Asks questions and listens to the patient. Very compassionate and understanding
