Great! Thank you!
I had a very personal and depressing and frustrating lesion that I needed zapped (a STD related one)...Dr. Passalacqua was extremely friendly and generous with her time and answering any questions I had about it and listening to my short rant about another previous doc and overall anxiety about the issue. She expressed empathy and then told me good medical information and then told me my options for removal. She then took care of it quickly and efficiently...I can't recommend her enough! :)
