I see Dr. Passalaqua and she has been amazing. I had a terrible experience a long time ago, but she has made going to the dermatologist a great experience. She took the time to listen to my concerns and needs. She diagnosed the issues and provided me with what I needed to take care of them. I will definitely keep coming back.
