What People Say About Dr. Mark Checcone, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Outstanding I was referred to Dr. Checcone by my Dermatologist after having a melanoma removed from my face. I had a hole in my face at least the size of a quarter for a week, while waiting to hear whether or not all of the cancer had been removed. Dr. Checcone's staff was very polite, efficient, and attentive. Dr. Checcone evaluated the opening during a consult and then performed the surgery the next day. He is a talented plastic surgeon who did an outstanding job. He took a round hole and turned it into a longer scar which he moved closer to my jaw line so that it would appear more natural. It has healed very well and people who have seen the before and after can't believe it. He even managed to save my beard by ensuring the scar didn't interfere too much with the natural hair growth! Highly recommend.

Four years ago I had a failed skin graft from a dermatologist after MOHs surgery on my nose - my nostril collapsed when breathing in. Dr Checcone reconstructed the nose using a piece of bone from the nasal septum as structural support and remaking the nostril- scary with great outcome. I sought his expertise again for another basal cell on the other side of my nose- he made the incision so you can't see the repair after a few months.

I wish for the readers hereof to take a moment while I tell the good news regarding Dr. Checcone and his staff. Each member of the staff is welcoming and competent. When I placed my initial call, the voice at the other end enabled me to sense that the office would take good care of me. Because my left ear was almost completely blocked, my need for an appointment was urgent. April offered me a convenient appointment. From the moment I entered the waiting room, I was greeted cheerfully. April and Flo assisted me as needed in the completion of the new-patient forms. The waiting room is spacious, comfortable and attractive. Upon my first meeting with Dr. Checcone, I quickly sensed that I was in a very suitable place. I now know that Dr. Checcone is very skillful, confident, personable and sensitive to the needs of the patient. Most importantly, Dr. Checcone has proper qualifications both in otolaryngology (i.e., ENT) and plastic surgery. A patient could not ask for more.

I question the validity of these reviews. Dr checcone had to perform a second reconstructive surgery because his first was horrible. He clearly lacks experience and expertise. I would not recommend this office whatsoever.

I went in for moes surgery on January 23rd. On January 26th. I had surgery with Dr.Checking at Lakewood ranch hospital. I had a hole in my nose the size of a quarter. Dr.Checcone closed up the hole without any skin grafts and my nose looks fantastic a week later. Now two weeks later you can't even see where the stitches were. I was so worried what my face would look like prior to surgery and now I'm overwhelmed at the success. I couldn't be more satisfied. A BIG thank you to Dr.Checcone

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.
