San Francisco, CA |
Excellent dermatologist, who is highly respected by her peers. Has treated me as a patient for over 20 years for a range of derm problems.

As a patient with psoriasis I have had a number of dermatologists so I know when one is good. She knows what she is talking about, takes the time to listen to you, and gives good recommendations. However, her style is very direct. I personally love this, but if you are the type of person who wants a pat on the head and chit chat then go somewhere else.

I love Dr. Tuffanelli (and have been going to her for about 15 years) because she is honest, tells it like it is and doesn't encourage me to do things that really don't need to be done. I had a dermatologist once tell me I had to have a mole removed from my back, which I did, at great expense, and later found out the procedure had been completely unnecessary. Dr. Tuffanelli also helped my daughter with an acne problem. She's just a great doctor :)
