The staff - receptionist, assistant and Dr. Careccia we’re very thorough and professional. They were also very personable and welcoming. Dr. Careccia takes her time with you during the exam, explains her observations and answers questions easily. The entire visit was very thorough, educational and helpful.

Regularly scheduled six month exam to look for any skin problems including any signs of cancerous growths. Follow up on previous surgery.

I've been a patient for a few yrs and recommend her highly. Some of the best doctors are not the best in bedside manners especially on a busy day. I was prompted to include in my review a reply to a one star review by a person who had a whole body examine for melanoma. Complaining of the doctor starting with the feet and working upward being possibly not hygienic, that may seem unconventional, but I have gotten it done the other way around by another doc who forgot to finish the rest of my body! I have this to say: Did you go to this appointment with unclean feet or other parts of your body? If you wore flip flops after a few hours of running around and then went to the appointment I would say shame on you! Any doctor appointment expects you to have the courtesy and sense to be freshly bathed without perfumes or makeup in some instances, in order for the doctor to be able to judge your condition without those things interfering. And if you were, then you had nothing to worry about.

Dr. Careccia's staff has treated three members of our family, including my 100 year old mother-in-law. We are very grateful for their skilled, thorough, patient diagnosis and treatment of our skin ailments. Heather Leto, in particular, exhibits such high level nursing experience and is a great mentor for her medical assistant, Brianna. We will miss Brianna, as she heads off to medical school. Our family is pleased to recommend Dr. Careccia's dermatology office to anyone with skin concerns.

Heather, Dr. Careccia’s nurse, examined lesions prior to removal and determined they were benign. Brianna, Heather’s assistant, also performed extremely well with pre- examine questioning and post-treatment procedures and information.

Dr. Careccia was professional and very thorough in her explanation of a melanoma lesion on my upper back. When she removed the lesion my anxiety was lessened due to her caring and friendly attitude. She is very skilled in surgical procedures as demonstrated by the small and unnoticeable scar. I highly recommend her.

If Dr. Careccia performs a full body dermatology exam on you, be sure to tell her face first, then feet! NOT the other way around, as was done to me. After handling my toes and feet, she put her hands all over my face to check for abnormalities. One only wonders if she bothered to wash her hands before seeing the next patient. This woman is not a practitioner of patient-centered care.

Dr. Careccia is the best dermatologist I have been to. I was diagnosed with melanoma a week before I moved to Florida in 2015. I came to see her about 6 months after I moved here. She was very thorough with my exam and made me feel very comfortable. Anything new on me she takes off. Even if to her it looks benign, because of my melanoma history, she takes it off. I feel like it is mostly to ease my mind but that's okay with me. Her staff is amazing and always so friendly. I highly recommend her!

I went in for a black legion on my genital area that looked like cancer from all the info I gathered on the internet(rapid growth, a large size, uneven borders, uneven colors). Dr Rachel Careccia looked at it and told me she thought it was a mole and that I shouldn't worry about it, or to watch to see if it grows in 2-3 months. I told her I have been watching it for a year, its been growing rapidly, and I just want it removed. She said ok she couldn't remove it at that moment and I would have to

My daughter went to see Dr. Careccia and she was wonderful. She identified 3 different skin issues she had and treated them accordingly. She was great with my daughter and very thorough. The wait time wasn't long either which is big plus for us.

For my total body exam, I took in a list of about 20 areas of concern. Dr. Careccia said that she has a specific routine of doing an exam so that she doesn't "miss anything." In addition to her specific routine, she addressed each area about which I was concerned. None of the areas that I asked about looked worrisome to her. However, due to her specific routine exam she noted a precancerous lesion that I had never noticed! Also, she does an antiseptic cleaning of the exam table between patients!

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.
