"The assistant -Deja was very kind & professional. She showed genuine concern for the patient who is 98 yrs old. Dr Bandino was the same. He listened and explained thoroughly. They are a great team"
"Literally the best dermatologist I have ever been to was Justin Bandino. He was the first and only dermatologist to ever suggest I go to an endocrinologist to figure out why I’m basically growing a beard and having so many skin tags (along w other things). He prescribed me an amazing cream to help with my acne. He was thorough and caring and very helpful. The services are a little pricey but definitely worth it for the quality of care received."

"Had my first visit with MD Justin Bandino. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He listened to all my concerns about the severe itching and rash spots I was having. He educated me it was common and that it was a rash induced by one of my medications. Easily treatable with a steroid ointment. I was very relieved to hear this and learned a lot in my visit. I highly recommend him and them. All of the staff were polite, friendly and the environment was clean and comfortable. I'm glad I chose them"
