Dr. Checcone is an excellent plastic surgeon.! I highly recommend him to any patient in the Sarasota area requiring his expertise. He is a very kind, caring and compassionate physician who goes the extra mile for his patients. My 87 year old mother was his patient. He started her visits with hugs and ended them the same way. His compassion gave her the peace to withstand the necessary procedures she required for her cancer treatments. This excellent physician deserves a 5 star rating!

Dr. Checcone did an excellent reconstruction job after I had extensive skin cancer removed from my nose. He is knowledgeable, professional, kind and gentle. His rapport with his staff is outstanding. I would not hesitate to see him again if the need arises.

So grateful Dr. Checcone came into my life. An amazing physician and surgeon. A super human being, caring and compassionate. Great listener

I was referred to Dr. Checcone with a problem I had after Mohs surgery in a dermatologist's office. Dr. Checcone was excellent in his communication skills, his reconstructive surgery, and follow-up. He and his staff accommodated me in my sudden time of need. I was grateful for his expertise and calm manner when I was scared and worried about how I would look after healing. The outcome I had, due to his skill, was better than I even hoped for. I highly recommend him.

Very friendly doctor and staff! Makes you feel very comfortable and does great work
After our first consultation, you made me feel very comfortable. You not only removed the basil cell, but also pulled the tip of my nose up a bit. The stitches were made very finely, there was no inflammation or infection. Today, you can't even see where the incision was. The spot is still pinkish, but there is no scar. Your staff was kind, professional & had a great sense of humor, guiding through the procedure & afterwards. If I had to put it in one sentence: You have exceeded my expectations.

I had a mole revision with Dr Checcone. At first he was very pleasant and spent a lot of time explaining the procedure. However the incision took months to heal and kept getting infected. When I went back for follow up he brushed it off and tried to upsell me other services and laser procedures. I ended up having to go to my regular derm for her to excise and drain the wound. It was a long and painful ordeal, and now I am left with a large scar.

Poor bedside manner and poor work. During my surgery he kept scolding his medical assistants for putting supplies in the wrong place and not stocking things correctly. All while he had a knife to my face! It was extremely uncomfortable and left me with very bad scarring. I can't help but think it was because he was in a mood bad day. I regret coming to his office.

Dr checcone is a really nice guy, so I feel horrible leaving this review, but hopefully someone will appreciate the honesty. His work was not good; it was extremely invasive and pretty much ruined my face. I read these reviews thinking they were real, but wish I had gone elsewhere. Even my dermatologist was shocked. When I went for my follow up it was so awkward because I could tell even dr checcone felt bad about his poor work and the large scarring. Everyday I look in the mirror I am so angry.
in Tampa, FL |
Dr. Checcone Is awesome. I went to him for filler and the results are phenomenal! The atmosphere is very high end, while maintaining a warm and friendly feeling. Would recommend him to anyone!
in Bradenton, FL |
Dr Mark Checonne did an amazing job after I had a skin cancer on my nose that was quite large. Its healing up very well and eventually there will hardly be a scar. My friends are amazed how well it looks in such a short time. A very gifted Doctor.!
in Bradenton, Florida |
Dr. checcone rebuilt the tip of my nose after MOHs surgery. He did a beautiful job and even allowed my husband in the room. I was quite impressed with Dr. Checcone's professionalism and his easy friendly manner. I would definatly see him again for any future repairs.
