I started seeing Dr. Kaminester June 2016 after moving here from NJ. He is a wonderful doctor and caring person. I have severe psoriasis. He is the best I have seen in my 65 years. Along with Dr. Kaminester his office staff is the friendliest (cheerful) and most helpful I have encountered. If you want a pleasant experience at a dermatology office this is the place to go.
I just came from his office where he found I had several small skin cancers. He removed them and sent me on my way. He and his staff were so pleasant and professional that I am having my wife go to him, also. To give me the final lab report, HE PERSONALLY CALLED ME AT HOME.

Doctor Kaminester is truly a special dermatologist in my opinion and I write that with 55 years of experience with that profession. Not only are his diagnostic skills superb but his surgical capabilities are evident in each visit. DR. Kaminester has been treating my wife and me for ten years and we both are extremely satisfied not only with his professional capabilities but with his truly "caring" nature. His very knowledgeable staff and office personnel make each visit a delight.

Both my wife and I have been in Dr. Kaminester's care for about 40 years and we could not be more satisfied. I have been around the water and exposed to the sun for some 80 years and have had numerous cancers excised or frozen from my back, shoulders, head and arms and have never been back for a second treatment for the same location. I am regularly contacted by phone regarding results of any cancerous removals.

A truly patient-centered office! Dr. Kaminester's caring manner, along with his professional skills, are clearly focused on diagnosing and addressing the needs of his patients. He and his staff promote a welcoming environment and attentiveness to detail. Dr. Kaminester is a model for all medical practitioners, regardless of their areas of specialty!

My wife and I moved to Palm Beach area about four years ago and needed a dermatologist, like everyone else in Florida. Through a referral, we found Dr. Kaminester who came highly regarded. Four years later, we know we found a thorough, careful professional with a first-class resume. He is very experienced in Mohs and I needed that and he is part of the cutting edge in new diagnostic technology. Extremely efficient and thorough, and understands cosmetic issues. Great staff!

We were recommended to Dr. Kaminester by a friend. Dr. Kaminester runs an excellent dermatology clinic, ably supported by Sarah Kennedy and other staff. Sarah Kennedy treated both my wife and myself. She listened patiently to our health problems and provided excellent care accordingly. Sarah requested my wife to keep in touch regarding non-dermatology issues being treated by other specialists. Finally Dr. Kaminester graciously guided us on a tour of his clinic.

I was referred to him by several other Physicians. I have been there several times. He is thorough, great bedside manners and explains everything. He takes no chances unless he is 100% sure of the spot. I appreciate he biopsies any questionable spot, mark or sore on my skin. His staff is excellent and have been there for decades. I am completely satisfied and feel confident he will protect me from any serious skin cancer issues. I live in S Florida, boat and spend time in the sun. See him

Outstanding Dermatologist. Referred by several other doctors. His staff is excellent and he is beyond thorough. I have been to other Derms but none like him. Highly recommend him to anyone needing a derm. I have been in the sun much of my nearly 70 yrs and need to be carefully examined. I appreciate his thoroughness and makes no assumptions from visuals unless he is certain. Otherwise he biopsies or treats. His PA and nurses are terrific as well.

Dr. Kaminester was referred to me by my orthopedic surgeon who praised Dr. K and his articulate and knowledgeable staff. Dr. K found two suspicious growths on my back removing them in their entirety and not just scraping for biopsy. These growths were missed by my previous dermatologist whom I left for not being thorough enough. Thank goodness I was referred to Dr. Kaminester who is both professional and personable with a keen eye. I have finally found a dermatologist I can trust!

I was skeptical about going to see a Doctor until a friend recommended Dr. Kaminester. The ladies at the front desk made my scheduling easy. While I was at my appointment, the whole staff was friendly and made me feel comfortable there. Dr Kaminester takes the time to talk to you and lets you know what's going on as he is working on you. Everyone was professional and I would definitely recommend him.
in West Palm Beach, FL |
His office staff is professional, personable, knowledgeable and caring. Everyone has a genuine concern for your health and well being. You can?t fake this stuff; they truly do care about their patients. When I met Dr. Kaminester, he took an abundance of time learning about me, my concerns, my health and my expectations. His personality and professionalism are second to none. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kaminester and his staff for any Dermatological needs you may have.
Compassionate and easy to interact with. He has been my dermatologist for 20 years! ??

Dr. Kaminester took care of my skin issues, informed me of all my options, and put my mind at ease. The office staff is communicative and most efficient. A great experience.

My 15 year old son had severe acne and in less than six weeks with the regime given to him by dr Kaminester his acne is all but gone. Dr. Kaminester is beyond knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. He gets to know you on a personal level unlike those large practices where you are just another face in the crowd. His staff is supportive and wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Kaminester. We continue to have a wonderful experience.

Why go coach when you can go first class? First and foremost Dr. Kaminester is the finest dermatologist you will find. His skills and knowledge is outstanding. His staff are the finest anywhere. The office is warm and inviting. The waiting room welcomes you with fresh coffee or tea along with butter cookies and candies. A flat screen TV is there for your enjoyment as are magazines, which won't be necessary as the wait times are short and punctual. Have been going there for years. Very Happy.
