Dr. K has been my dermatologist for several years and I rate him among the best M.D.s I know. Everything about his practice is A+. Earlier this year, he discovered two melanoma cancer growths, one on my neck and one on my back. He recommended an outstanding surgeon and within weeks my problem was solved. Since my Mother died of melanoma cancer at age 73, I am very happy that Dr. K is my doctor. Ronald K. Parker, Ph.D.

I'm a new patient of Doc K. Over the course of a couple of weeks, I had a thorough exam and had a couple of pre cancerous "spots" removed. The office is very clean. The staff is engaging and quick to assist. The Dr was terrific and took a good amount of time on my initial visit. The removal of the spots was painless. I would highly recommend this office and Dr.

Dr. Kaminester is the dermatologist I was always looking for but never found until now. I am a 67 year old man and have had 7 skin cancers in the last 16 years. Quite frankly, until Dr Kaminester, I was so traumatized by the dermatologists and their very cold ways and by what I considered excessive use of the Mohs procedure for even the tiniest growths, that I foolishly stopped going to see a dermatologist for the last 5 years. Very foolish. Finally, my sanity took hold of me and I searched and researched for a Highly Experienced and qualified doctor and found Dr Kaminester. Everything about him and his staff is warm and compassionate and real.He examines you from head to toe and him and his staff see everything. He talks to you on a one to one equal level and you just know that he knows skin. His credentials are extremely top of the line. I can say all this about him because I have been around the block with both doctors and life. He is the real thing.

I went to Dr. Kaminester for a general skin review/exam. Everything you read about him is true. A fine office, and Dr. Kaminester is a fine Dr! He listens, and is a genuinely warm soul. Saw a spot that he wanted to biopsy, and personally called me back with the results. He enjoys his practice and meeting with patients and that seems to be unique these days. Thanks Dr. Lou!!!

This doctor had an impeccable eye for abnormal growths. He has diagnosed melanoma on my daughter, squamous cell cancer on my scalp and basal cell on my husband. These were unusual areas that could have been easily missed by another doctor but his keen eye saved my daughters life.

I have been a male patient of Dr Kaminester's for several years as a result of growing up in So Fla with little knowledge of the effects of the sun. He has done an excellent job of keeping my skin cancer under control. On a recent visit, I pointed out what I thought was a cyst on my chest. He inspected it and recommended that I see a surgeon as soon as possible "because men can have breast cancer too". Thanks to him, I was diagnosed with early male breast cancer an am a breast cancer survivor.
