Professional Statement

Dr. Catherine Carretero-Ferrufino was born and raised in Detroit Michigan. She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and her Medical Degree in Detroit Michigan at Wayne State University. While at Wayne State she was a member of the national medical honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha. Following medical school, she went on to complete her medical internship and dermatology residency at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit Michigan. While at Henry Ford Dr. Carretero received both the Henry Ford Hospital and Michigan Dermatological Society awards for outstanding resident research. She presented at the American Academy of Dermatology in both 2004 & 2005, and published several scientific articles. Throughout medical school and residency Dr. Carretero served as a tutor and mentor to high-school students preparing for college entrance exams. She also had the opportunity to work in the health care system in Spain, on two separate occasions during both medical school and residency, so that she could improve her communication with her many Spanish speaking patients.

Following residency Dr. Carretero moved to Colorado to be with her husband Mike Ferrufino (a Colorado native) who is in the radio industry. Since then she has started her own practice in the lower highlands, where she also lives. She enjoys seeing patients of all ages and does take special pride in being able to serve the large Latino community in the Denver area, as she is fluent in Spanish. Dr. Carretero is a past board member of the Level One Society of the Denver Health Foundation and Project PAVE(promoting alternatives to violence through education). She is an active member of Robby’s Friends (a non-profit serving children with cancer).

Really great experience. Cathy listened to my issue, provided a thoughtful treatment and provided recommendations for different products. It was a quick visit but also thorough. The building and office are also really nice and there's some parking behind the building which is convenient in that neighborhood.

Dr. Carretero has been wonderful, fitting me in quickly to resolve an acne issue before my wedding. She made sure I could get in to have a cyst treated if needed at that time too which was so helpful to know as a stressed bride. Now that I've just had a baby she has also been very helpful in explaining and helping me find options that can help my skin and are safe for my baby. She is a very caring and considerate doctor.

I was able to get my issue resolved right away. The assistant, receptionist, and physician were all very accommodating and polite. Plus, the view from the office is spectacular, and so it's no wonder the office has such a nice atmosphere. I recommend using a specialist for your skin concerns. It was worth it for peace of mind.

My first experience with Dr. Carretero was extremely positive. She's very professional/ knowledgable, and has a very personable character. I was more than comfortable with her and will keep her as my primary dermatologist here in Denver (I'm new in town, feeling very lucky to have found her on my first go). Wait time was nearly non existent, I literally filled out the form, sat down, and she called my name. Thanks for such a great experience :)

Professional, understanding, and didn't waste time. I was in and out (for a routine acne check) in 20-30 minutes. I arrived early and they were able to take me early. Will continue to go to her.

This was my 3rd year in a row getting a skin screening from Dr. Carretero and the first time I passed with flying colors! The office is beautiful and high-end feeling and while her bedside manner could be considered a bit "dry," I like it because I know that she is being real with me. She's very thorough, which is most important, making me feel safe that anything of concern will be detected.

The only problem I had was the front desk didn't have my ZocDoc info. pulled up. It took a little while, but after that Catherine was awesome and everything was super smooth. Front desk was very nice and helpful in getting the docs. Would recommend her to anyone in the Denver area!

Dr. Carretero was on time, extremely personable, and I trusted her instantly. Not trying to sell any fancy skincare products or push procedures, simply answered my questions, addressed any concerns, and sent me on my way! Will definitely recommend her to friends.

No nonsense office! Super quick. Dr. Carretero was timely and didn't make me wait forever. HUGE plus. My perception was that she could have been perhaps a little more thorough by possibly asking more probing questions about my skin, but she did do a full body check which is what I went in there for. (skin cancer screening). I will be going to her again!

She was helpful and suggested I try some topical creams for my hormonal acne - but I feel like the root cause of my acne were not addressed.
