Came in for a routine skin check and was diagnosed with Melanoma! Dr. Scatena performed the excision. She was very capable, professional and reassuring. I felt I was in very good hands.

Have been seeing Dr. Scantena for several years, and I'm more than happy with the service, professionalism and all around care. Highly recommended.

Dr. Scatena found a tiny basal cell carcinoma that required surgery. I truly doubt that any other doctor would have found it. She recommended 2 outstanding surgeons, and the outcome was better than I would have thought since the cancer was on an eyelid...
The practice does not 'walk the talk' when it comes to office policies. On multiple occasions, I have waited even up to 1 1/2 hr for my appt. The irony is the dr requires a signed agreement w/ a credit card if you cancel last minute or arrive too late for an appt. In a recent appt, I was left waiting for 10 mins. in the room. I was assured this was quick appt & really needed to get back to work. Due to history, I checked in and this upset the dr. My job is important & should not be left waiting.

Dr Scatena gives me great service and I am glad she is around. I am told that she does teaching consults at Boulder Community Hospital. This means she really knows her stuff.

The level of care is well above five star. Dr. Scatena is very professional, respectable, knowledgeable, and compassionate. She's a top-notch doc but someone who would be fun to sit down and have a beer with at the end of the day.
She's a great doctor, but it's impossible to get in to see her. I called to set up and appointment in early January. The soonest she could see me was early March. I made an appointment, but the office scheduled me at 8:45 instead of the 8:15 slot I was told was available, so I had to cancel that appointment and set up a new one! And, of course, her next available appointment was in early May! In the 2-4 months it takes to get in to see her, someone else could have been treating me! What a waste!
