My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Bettencourt for many years. We are both fair skinned. She is very thorough and quick examining us. She identifies all problems before they escalate. Dr. Bettencourt is dedicated to her patients and we feel safe in her hands.

Not only was I very pleased with Dr. Bettencourt and her staff, I made an appointment for my son before I even left, and sent my husband all the information he needed to make his own appointment. I would definitely see her again and am confident in her treatment.
