Patient Comments (5)

Dr Giannelli has been our family’s dermotogist for over 15 years.. He is an excellent Dermatogist. Everyone over the years to whom we have recommended him raves about him. The negative reviews must be from people who have never seen him.

Hello Thank you for the recommendation and positive feedback. I appreciate it very much.

I see Dr. Abritten in Dr. Gianelli's office. Each time I have an appointment, I am left waiting from 40 minutes to an hour. Even for an appointment first thing in the morning, I waited over 40 minutes to see the doctor.

as all the reviews have said, he overcharges for all the procedures and may do procedures that are not necessary for the condition. BEWARE!!! otherwise you might end up with a Surprise Bill.

He does not seem to know much and did not demonstrate enough ability to assess the skin condition and problems, he does not provide satisfactory explanation of the skin condition, he does not care about the patient at all. He overcharges.

He is incompetent, does not listen and does not address patient's concerns, does not explain anything. and shows zero care to the patient. He overcharges a lot. He lies on his bills. He spent 3 minutes on my procedure and he charged me for 30 minutes. His staff are very rude.
