Outstanding consultation. Very professional . Fully answered all my questions.. Outlinined plans for my next procedure.
Disappointed with the appointment. Came in to find out if the redness and rash on my face is rosacea and whether that could be contributing to styes. Dr. Stanko told me I could go home and read about rosacea on the Internet. I left not knowing whether she even thinks I have ocular rosacea. I felt the appointment was a waste of time. If I wanted to self diagnose based on Internet articles, I would not have made an appointment with a dermatologist.
We came to see Dr Stanko about blotchy skin that popped up quickly on our 13 year old. Dr Stanko never got out of her chair- not to introduce herself, not to look at his skin. She seemed 100 percent disinterested. Whether her diagnosis was correct or not, her unprofessional manners left us very unimpressed.
Wonderful practice. The reception staff put me at ease & was very efficient. The waiting room decor is lovely & relaxing. The DA, Emily, was friendly & knowledgeable. Dr. Stanko was professional, courteous, and patient in answering my questions.
It was my first visit to Dr. Stanko. She was lovely. Did and body check and then froze off a bunch of pre-cancerous lesions. She answered my questions and gave me very good recommendations for going forward with improving my facial skin. I Liked her very much.
Medication they prescribed have to be purchase from them (Bryn Mawr) because the insurance company will not approve it. I had a reaction from the medication I returned & show how it was not helping I was prescribed something else which I would to purchase, they would not take back what I had already got from them instead of doing an even exchange they said I had open and used it. If I didn't open and use it how would I know it was not good for me. They did not try to work anything out with me. I would not recommend anyone to them, they do not seem to be concern about patient care or satisfaction. My problem has not be resolved and I have to go to another dermatologist to cure my problem.
Dr. Stanko always is very thorough and listens to everything I have to say, answers all of my questions and is always very proactive about my overall health. She is the best!!!
Dr Stanko is the best physician on my healthcare team. She listens, gives guidance when needed, as well as answers the my questions. Her office staff are efficient, kind, and all of them make the visit very pleasant! I highly recommend this office!!
I was very impressed with Dr Stanko and her staff. They were very friendly, accommodating and professional. My wait time was less than expected and the office was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend Bryn Mawr Dermatology to anyone.
Nice short and quick, im still not seeing the results i should be seeing yet. In 3 weeks my forehead is already completely wrinkling. It looks as if i never got it all. Which had happened to me previously at bryn mawr dermatology. They were very accomodating.
Vary bad she din even spent 5 min- try to sell her product
Very professional and friendly staff and Dr. Stanko is a Doctor you can trust! The office is beautiful and extremely comfortable.
Christine Stanko is warm, professional and thorough. She made what might have been an uncomfortable time into a positive experience.
Outstanding experience and exam with Dr. Stanko. Have recommended her services several times over the years!??
Dr. Stanko and her staff were highly professional and took the time to answer all my questions; even when I asked the same questions a couple of times. Would recommend to anyone.
Answered all my doubts.
I got to the appointment early and Dr. Stanko saw me early. She gave a very thorough examination and answered all my questions. Thrilled with the visit!
I have skin issues. Dr. Stanko is always on top of things.
Quick check in comfortable waiting room good welcome by nurse Dr. Stanko arrived quickly friendly greeting asked good questions everything done very well.
Dr. Stanko was very professional, polite, anytime I'm in their office it is always a great experience ! Everyone there treats you like a special person !!
Very approachable and professional
I have been a long term patient with Dr. Stanko. I recommend her to EVERYBODY I know. Aside from her caring and engaging manner she is a skilled practitoner. Skin cancer was discovered in my family, so I started out years ago being followed by her for well-visit check ups only to eventually discover that I also had a need for treatment dealing with this condition; the area treated was in the middle of my chest. Amazingly today, and due to the surgical skill of this doctor, that highly visible area's scar is not noticed by anyone. I count myself fortunate to be one of Dr. Stanko's patients !! Being a surgical-trauma Registered Nurse, there are select few doctors I would give an unqualified recommendation to and it definitely does apply to this physician and her practice. Kudos and thanks for the excellent care always given .....from a grateful patient. Eileen H., RN, CNOR, CRM
Dr. Stanko performed a laser treatment on my 60+ year old face a month ago. Dr. Stanko and her staff were wonderful. They answered all of my questions and I appreciate that they never try to sell me a treatment that I don't want or need. My friends are all commenting on how great I look, but they are not sure why. I highly recommend Dr. Stanko!
Dr. Stanko and her office staff are fantastic. I have been seeing her for many years and would highly recommend.
Very helpful, honest, caring, and patient.
Scheduled a new patient appointment, was seen by a PA which was fine, but when the doctor came in, she was rude and rushed my issues I wanted to address. She did not give me any solutions except cleansing pads that her office sells for a good chunk of change. I left the appointment not feeling like I had anything resolved.
First time at skin Doc. Would have liked a little more time to discuss things as it was a new experience. She did some spot freezing and a full inspection. Next time I'll be better prepared to ask more questions. She was a little rushed. Good visit though.
I had a 11:45 appointment and wasn't seen until after noon or so, partly because a tech came in and asked questions so Dr. Stanko could understandably get right to the matter. All in all I didn't get out of there until 12:20. My suggestion is to have the client come in that much earlier so that the intended appt. time is actually kept. It made me late for my next appt even thought I'd asked when I first walked in if the doctor was running on time to which I got a yes.
The visit was very quick. I was given suggestions on some preventive care. I especially like the Saturday hours
Was. Excellent I will pass the information To my friend's. Goód work
I was a new patient and went in to have a number of issues addressed (acne, scars, etc.). Dr. Stanko didn't even come within three feet of me to look at the areas of concern on my body. She merely turned to the assistant, rattled off some prescriptions to write and left without even explaining why she prescribed me what she did.
The entire office was very nice and professional. Dr. Stanko addressed my questions and was thorough in the exam. My visit was for an annual screening and I felt comfortable during the visit as well as afterwards that my exam went well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Stanko.
Quick and easy. Great staff.
I was very pleased and will continue to use this office. The staff all had smiles and were really kind.
She addressed any concerns I had to put me at ease.
She was fine but I really get the feeling that dermatologists today are more interested in cosmetic procedures than preventative/medical ones. She was OK. I cant complain. It would have been nice if I didn't have to offer my skin for her to look at (I only went for a skin examination). I just got the feeling that she didn't see a cash cow in me so she wasn't that interested. I would love to find a doctor that cared.
Quick, helpful, and to the point. Looking forward to the next visit.
She told me exactly what the small bump on my leg was and gave me options on how to remove it. She also gave me pros and cons of each option and took time to answer my questions.
Very good bedside manner. Kind, caring and accommodating. She respected my time, was very thorough and easy to communicate with.
Not a thorough examination despite telling her that I have a strong family history of skin cancer, No face-to-face history - just paperwork. No attempt to establish rapport and no advice about prevention. There was also an additional charge for a tiny spray to eradicate a wart. I have excellent health insurance, but that didn't matter. Left office feeling entirely uncertain that I could feel secure that I had nothing to be concerned about. Judith (Appt: 8/2014)
Dr. Stanko is very personal; also asked me about my overall health and upcoming surgery. She is very easy and understanding. Warm and welcoming staff! Thanks! Sister Sue
The visit was very quick and professional. The drive there was shorter than my wait and appointment! I got there early and they took me right way. I was out before my scheduled time! Even though the visit was short, it was very thorough. Definitely an improvement over my previous dermatologists.
Doctor and staff were very professional and courteous. I was seen quickly.
Dr. Stanko and her staff are always professional and make you feel very comfort at their office. They are extremely friendly and knowledgeable in answering all your questions. I am very satisfied with all of the services I have received from Dr. Stanko, she has definitely met my expectations.
Dr. Stanko and her staff are excellent! Very caring and patient-focused.
Dr. Stanko was knowledgeable, cordial and efficient. I'll not hesitate to go back when necessary
Very nice...suggested a few things but didn't make a guess about what was going on.
I found Dr. Stanko and her staff to be both professional and personable. They spent the time with me that was needed to discuss the outcome I was seeking and only performed the procedures that were necessary. In the world of cosmetic procedures, some offices will try to oversell, but NOT here. Dr. Stanko clearly wants to establish long term relationships and will only do what she thinks is in her patients best interests. I would highly recommend her services.
I was very pleased with my visit. I was taken immediately and contrary to some offices once in the treatment area I was seen almost immediately. I was impressed that staff picked up on a problem not part of the original exam and that the Doctor returned and recommended and prescribed a solution.
Dr. Stanko puts the patient at ease and is friendly and very professional.
Very nice office space. Very professional. I was taken right on time, and Dr. Stanko was kind and throughout.
I've been seeing Dr. Stanko for a couple of years and I have always had a great experience with her. She and her staff make you feel very comfortable. Highly recommend.
Answered all my questions and was invested in a quick and seamless solution for my child's skin issue.
The front desk woman and the MA made me feel like it was a bother to see me, both unwelcoming and in fact, the facial expressions were unlike any I have recieved in any other office. They could use some classes on how to treat patients. Not once did anyone smile. I will not return . At one point when the MA realized there was an error in my appointment reason, she rolled her eyes and made it very clear that I was inconveniencing her. Not my fault the scheduling person made an error. And since the parking is impossible, I was not willing to reschedule. Had she been nicer to me, i might have offered. Dr stanko is very good and one would expect a friendlier reception in a place that promotes beauty. The parking situation is ridiculous and costly.
She's very professional and nice
Wait time was a bit long, 33 minutes or so. Dr was very fast (total visit with doctor was 5 minutes) but seemed good.
The staff was very nice and my appointment was only about 15 minutes late whcih isn't bad. My primary doctor set me up with a dermatologist in his practice but I would have had to wait 4 weeks to see them. With this service I was able to book an appointment for the next day. I was thrilled!
Very professional, human and friendly. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Very knowledgeable, spent time explaining things to me, and really friendly
The receptionist was rude, unprofessional and unattentive. Rarely do you encounter such an attitude in a doctor's office these days. The medical staff is good, this receptionist needs to go.
I would recommend Dr. Stanko. I was seen quickly, her bedside manner was good, and the office staff was friendly
She barely looked at my skin and had a brief less than 5 min conversation with me.
The visit was a memorable one. The staff was helpful and Dr Stanko was professional and provided prompt attention to the matter at hand...I would recommend this office to anyone needing dermatology assistance..
Was only first visit so its very early to judge, but good so far.
Seen right away, very nice woman.
The visit and care from Dr. Stanko and her colleagues accomplished the purpose, but they did only a very minimal physical exam. A whole lot of the skin is under the clothes!
Was so happy they were able to get me right in. Dr. Stanko was very professional and receptive to my needs.
Very kind, seemingly thorough, and accommodating.
Pleasant, attentive, and professional.
Excellent...very good with kids
She was professional, caring and explained everything. I'm glad I came across her on zocdoc. She is worth the appointment if your looking for a dermatologist.
Dr. Stanko was very professional and listened to all of my concerns. She made me feel comfortable and the office atmosphere was extremely pleasant. I would definitely recommend this doctor to others.
Great doctor, great staff! Highly recommended!
Christine Stanko is a great dermatologist, I highly recommend her, she is very friendly and very educated.
The nurse was great, the doctor was strange and looked at me like I had three heads. I didn't feel comfortable talking to her at all and will look for another dermatologist.
I was so impressed with my ability to make an appointment in 1 week, and then be in and out of the office within 40 minutes. She seemed very nice, personable and willing to listen.
My visit was great. The doctor listened to me and the staff were friendly too. Now I pray the meds clear me up :)))
Her staff is great! She was great with me and answered all my questions. I love using zocdoc! The text reminder with all the info for the dr. was great! Thank you!!
Excellent! Highly recommended. Best medical practice that I have been to. Receptionist was polite and pleasant. Nurse was great and Dr. Stanko was excellent!
Dr. Stanko is professional, courteous and takes her time when she is with you. You feel like you are the only patient there. Other doctors could learn from her.
Bryn Mawr Dermatology is an efficient and friendly office. From the moment you step in the door to the time you leave, you feel well cared for and comfortable. Dr. Stanko as well as all the staff are professional, kind, and helpful. I am so pleased with the consultation and treatments I received.
She was very nice and knowledgeable. She cut straight to the chase about the concerns and gave me options that I am considering.
My primary reason for seeing Dr. Stanko Burkholder was for a full body scan to make sure there weren't any moles or other irregular skin problems that could indicate cancer. The scan was very quick. I wish she had taken longer to look more carefully.
Dr. Stanko was eminently professional, attentive, and thorough. She demonstrated an impressive command of her field and the range of treatment options available.
Pleasant, thorough, with efficient staff
Dr. Stanko was personable and professional. I may have just been lucky, but waited less than 5 minutes to be seen. Her staff was friendly and easy to talk with. She seemed competent but conservative in her approach which I appreciate.
Professional and thorough. Listened closely to concerns and took time in her evaluation. Highly recommend.
She was very pleasant and listened to my concerns and answered all my questions.
She was a wonderful doctor, I would tell any of my friends to go to her.
Great experience. Easy to talk to.
Dr. Stanko was wonderful! Her staff is friendly and professional.
She was very kind, very soothing. And very helpful. I would return to her anytime.
A good initial consultation
She was very direct, knowledgeable and sympathetic. I was seen right away and she sent me home with free samples to see what worked best for my skin. Overall, this is the best dermatology experience I have had to date. I'd recommend Bryn Mawr dermatology to anyone!
Professional and caring for my 94 year old mother.
Excellent Dr. and staff. A very efficient and pleasant experience.
Very nice and attentive. Pleasant staff and low wait time. Overall good experience. I would recommend her.
