Just loved Dr. Pena and her office staff. They were friendly and the office is beautiful. Dr. Pena fit me in immediately for a condition and was very knowledgeable, friendly and communicates clearly, allowing the time for the patient to feel comfortable with the process of diagnosis and procedure. I felt very confident in her expertise and so glad to have discovered this lovely professional.

EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH HER KINDNESS AND TREATMENT FOR THE KINETIC KERATOSIS. I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH HER AND HER STAFF now WHAT AM I GONNA DO WITHOUT HER TREATMENT AND KNOWLEDGE IN TREATING MY FACE ISSUES... I WAS SO PLEASED AND AM SO UPSET SHE IS LEAVING..ONE MORE APPOINTMENT BEFORE SHE LEAVES THE BUILDING .... HOPE WE ARE ADVISED IF REPLACEMENTS WILL FILL THE OFFICE SO WE DO NOT HAVE TO SEARCH AGAIN FOR A REPUTABLE DERMATOLOGIST. A VERY DISSAPOINTED CLIENT... CYNTHIA

super nice and very informational. Would recommend her to anyone. My skin wasn't that bad, but she really listened to my concerns and told me about different options.

I saw Dr Pena-Robicheaux (14 months ago). I pointed out a growth on my nose. I told her that it just kept growing a flaking off. She said it was "nothing to be concerned about" and froze it. I was a bit concerned about her diagnosis but put off seeing another doc for a year. I go yearly (told her) due to past skin cancer on my nose and hip. It turned out to be cancer, with a root. So, I'm sitting here with 14 stitches, running the length of my nose. Needs more training as a diagnostician. More..
