Dr. Cordova and all of the staff at Pennsylvania Dermatology Partners were wonderful! I came in to have a mole excised and was anxious about it. However, the nurse Jenn and Dr. Cordova helped me through the process without issue. Professional, courteous, patient, wonderful. Highly recommend!

Over six months I saw 9 physicians and would care staff for a skin condition that worsened. The biopsy was negative, then saw an infectious disease specialist who could not dx the skin condition, but put me on antibiotics long-term. Most of my HMO's dermatologists were not taking new patients or did not have an opening for 6 months. Got an appointment quickly with Dr Cordova, which should have warned me. He was arrogant, irritable, dismissive, glanced at the wounded area from two feet away, stated it could only be treated with steroids. I said I had glaucoma and osteopenia and he pooh-poohed that, said that absolutely, positively the steroids would not be a problem but without any information about the degree of those conditions for me...and then walked out of the room stating that only steroids would cure the skin condition. I did not take the steroids, remained on the antibiotics, and within two weeks the wound healed. TOTAL WASTE of my time and co-pay.

I have always had a good experience. The staff is pleasant and knowledgeable and helpful. Dr. Cordova takes his time reviewing ones records and asking questions. He thoroughly explains any procedure he is going to do and works with a steady hand. I recommend his services to any who require an excellent dermatologist.

My previous dermatologist retired so I selected Dr. Cordova based upon reviews such as this one. I was not disappointed, as Dr. Cordova addressed all my needs in a friendly but professional manner. I will continue to see Dr. Cordova for any future skin related concerns and I recommend him to anyone in need of a good dermatologist.

Been dealing with an issue for over a year with family doctor. Dr. Cordova took one look and knew exactly what the problem was and how to treat it. He was super nice and professional. Very personable. Will definitely use this office again. The staff were friendly and helpful. All in all a very good experience.
