Had an appointment on 3/25/21, for a general skin check. The waiting area is spacious & immaculate. The woman who checked me in was very pleasant. Covid protocol was in place the entire visit. Appointment was 1:15, I was early. Waited less than 10 min, then roomed by my nurse, Lindsay, who gave me a gown & told me what to expect. Be aware that you will be asked to undress, leaving underwear on, socks off. This is so a complete body check can be done. There are areas that we can't see so well on our own.. Don't be shy, if you feel somewhat embarrassed, remind yourself how you would feel to later find out there was a suspicious spot you didn't see that turned out to be cancerous. So, I waited maybe 10 min , then Julie PA came in. Very pleasant, told me what she was going to do. For the very first time, I had my scalp checked. Honestly, I never gave that area a thought! I was very comfortable with Julie. Lindsay, was awesome, gave me excellent information about facial treatments

Horrible bedside manner. I went in for a suspicious spot and he walked in, looked at it and said "Do you have any family history of skin cancer?" I answer "No." and he said "Well you do now!" Completely caught me be surprise and had me so worried for the next 7 days until the testing came back. Not to mention I was in his office several years before for the same spot and they said it was not cancer. I was so relieved when he was WRONG! To say that to a patient before you even know 100% is not acceptable, in my opinion. Will not be doing to him or referring him.

I knew I had to make a first appointment just for a consult even though I knew I would need surgery to remove a cyst. To my great surprise when I got there they immediately said they could take care of it while I was there that day. This was a relief to not have to schedule another appointment. I will definitely be returning to this office. Great staff.

I felt fortunate in getting an appt. so quickly, after getting results from the lab. Within just a few days, I had a Squamous cell in situ removed on my face. Sydney, Dr. Accetta's surgical assistant, kindly explained everything to me about the procedure, in advance of Dr. Accetta entering the surgical suite. Dr. Accetta's friendliness and ability to connect with me was outstanding. I felt at ease throughout the whole procedure. All questions were answered to my satisfaction. Pain-free! Tnx

Dr Accetta along with Elizabeth and Sara answered all my questions regarding my surgery to remove basal-cell from the side of my nose and close to my left eye. The perp and procedure was painless. They even called me the next day to see how I was. If your researching were to go for being scanned and treated for skin cancer you will not be disappointed.

As a new patient, I met with Mary Canna, Pa-c, very caring/professional, detected a Melanoma. Day of surgery office traffic very orderly, good appointment management . I was prepped for surgery by Kelly,Rn, surgery by Dr. Peter Accette assisted by Sarah, Pa-c, all very professional and friendly, we chatted during surgery and Kelly wrapped things up. The background music being played was inspirational. As I left the office, I found myself humming Billy Joels "Up Town Girl". I will return.

The office is extremely accomodating and comfortable, The physicians assistants are absolutely wonderful in addressing every question and concern!

Dr. Accetta and his staff are wonderful! I had some cosmetic procedures done on my face to treat old acne scars . For years I always felt self conscious of the scars on my face from teenage acne. I can tell you for the first time in 35 years I can pull my hair back or up, put on a headband and leave the house. It feels great to do that. Dr Accetta and the ladies that work with him are great! I will recommend him to anyone i talk to that needs a dermatologist. Maura Hare

I had a pre-cancerous mole removed by Dr. Accetta. He answered all my questions and explained the surgical procedure. Assistant Elizabeth was wonderful and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Accetta did the surgery quickly and put in dissolving stitches. Another student doctor finished stitching the wound. No pain at all following the procedure. A nurse called the next day to check on me.
