Dr. Colombo is very engaging, professional, knowledgeable and thorough. I have been so impressed with her that my husband is now going to her. She is the best dermatologist that I have ever been to! She truly cares about her patients. We are so glad that we found her because we trust her explicitly with our health.

Went in for skin check. She was efficient. Said she could freeze off a small area of concern (supposedly covered by insurance), or do laser treatment (not covered, would cost $400). I decided to wait, so I could check with insurance. It was a VERY short visit, but I guess I got what I came in for. Insurance said I need preauthorization or would have to see my doc again for auth. Called office today & they said they don't do preauthorizations, so I cancelled the follow-up appointment.

This doctor is completely impersonal and rude. She will not listen to your concerns. I had a very bad skin infection on my hand and I needed to insist for her to drain pus between my fingers. Then she finally did and stopped after a little bit saying that it did not need anymore. The whole time she only spoke with her assistant dictating the prescriptions. I voiced my concern about getting another infection since she did remove all the pus and she simply ignored.

I went in worried about dark spots on my face. She put me at ease on my first visit. After following her recommendations those spots have disappeared! Later on she even helped me regain my bald hair spot! After hair extension ruined part of my hair line! I've been going to the practice for over 2 years. Now my appointments just for check ups! A #1 important point you can get your first appointment right away not 3 months later! Thank you Dr. Colombo & office staff your great!

I went to see Dr. Colombo when I had a very serious skin infection. Unfortunately the way this practice is run I do not feel like I got the care I needed-resulting in MAJOR scarring from my infection. Have no idea if this was preventable.When I was in the office I only saw Dr. Colombo for 4-5 minutes at a time. The office rarely returned my calls about the medication I was taking. However she is very friendly and would recommend for cosmetic procedures but maybe not for serious skin issues.
