Dr. Careccia is wonderful! I was seen exactly on time for my appointment. She gave me excellent advice and options, and her staff was extremely attentive and accommodating. I didn't think my insurance would cover my medication, but her tech looked up a local pharmacy and verified my insurance would cover it AND printed a coupon. I had an excellent experience and I look forward to continuing my care with her.

Dr. Careccia is wonderful! I always appreciate her thoroughness - and how she makes it easy for me to understand the "science" of what she's recommending for treatment of both me and my kids. Highly recommended!

Highly recommend -- I went to a few other local dermatologists in the area and was disappointed with the quality of care. Dr Careccia did a much thorough exam than others, and I feel very confident in her diagnosis. I plan to have the rest of my family see her.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR. Diagnosis incorrect because Diagnosis not correlated with clinical facts . Apparently doctor perfers to make assumption. For me this resulted in antibiotics being unnecessarily prescribed. Refused to do a biopsy to correctly diagnose condition . Waste of money,Waste of time . RUDE

Very caring,.... Terrific listener .... Great touch Had Dr. Careccia preform a removal of some skin cancer located on my back... The Doc and her staff were extremely professional in the way they handled the whole procedure. Well done ladies

My experience with Dr. Careccia and her staff has always been great! I believe that with my issue, she was the most thorough with the process of evaluating my condition to ensure the best possible result and with subsequent monitoring has kept me in a normal lifestyle. I highly recommend her!

If there was a star that I could not highlight I would. There is a 30$ copay and all she does is tell you what you already know---actually she did not tell me anything.. she had a nurse assistant tell me everything. In the middle of my question she straight out walked up and left....like seriously so rude. This is a person's face we are talking about..for you to disregard it like nothing is very rude and very unrelatable for a doctor. There are many other dermatologists in Tampa. Save your copay
I visited Dr. Careccia for my acne. She told me I would see a change in 4 weeks . Well it's been over 6 weeks and my acne has worsened . I went to a new dematologist that told me that what Dr. Careccia gave me would not of made a big impact on my acne , and only would worsen over time. What I really need was an antibiotic pill , which I was not given . So now I am 6 weeks in the wrong direction. Also , when I would see her , she acted like she had no time for my questions and wasn't sympathetic
