As a legal guardian for my niece who is of special needs and who requires special attention due to her disability, I want to share that Dr. Mercandetti and his supporting staff put forth excellent effort to make her feel comfortable throughout her very successful surgical procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Mercandetti if you are looking for someone to be both professional and personable. All questions were answered and ample time was shared during all visits. You will be 100% satisfied.

Wonderful doctor with outstanding credentials, very attentive to detail and the comfort of the patient. I would go back without hesitation for another procedure.

After a poor experience with office staff and procedural errors I want to rescind my previous review. Dr Mercandetti is an outstanding doctor. No question. The reception and telephone staff were/are the issues. He is professional, empathetic and willing to discuss any and all options. I would highly recommend him for any dermatological issues. I cannot speak to optional procedures.

Dr. Mercandetti it's very knowledgeable attentive, professional, and precise. He is an expert in his field. I was referred to him by other opthamologists who do opthamological surgery. Not only does he take care of the visual aspect of the eyes, he does with botox and fillers and helping people look their best. He is not one to promote surgery that's going to have people look overdone. He is honest, ethical and a good listener. A great asset to our Medical Community.

I have complete confidence in Dr. Mercandett. I've had eye lid cancer twice in the last ten yrs. He's done surgery both time's and results couldn't have turned out better. I've recommended several friends to his office and they also couldn't be more pleased.

I was sent to Dr Mercandetti for dropping eyelids. He could have done the surgery and taken the money. But instead he took the time to send me to a neurologist and to follow up with me after my appt with the neuroligist. He was right about his diagnosis and I did not need surgery. He personally called me to discuss the neurologist findings. I would highly recommend him.
