The front desk staff and nurse that brought me back were fantastic, as was the atmosphere. However, I felt like my annual skin cancer screening was very rushed, and Dr. Stanko seemed relatively disinterested in having a conversation or checkingthoroughly. Though she seems like a great doctor, I left feeling very hesitant. I wish she would have taken the time to analyze my skin better!

The office is lovely and the staff are courteous and professional. I was actually seen before my appointment time. However, Dr. Stanko's bedside manner was less than impressive. She barely looked at the rash on my back, and suggested two cleansers,both of which have sulfates (after I told her I am allergic to sulfates). She did not inspire great confidence in the way she discussed potential causes for the issues I came in for, and I feel I could have googled treatments for a lot less money.

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 theInternet. 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.

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 whichI 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.

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 outyears 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 thatI 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!

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 thather 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 thereuntil 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.

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 turnedto the assistant, rattled off some prescriptions to write and left without even explaining why she prescribed me what she did.

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 forher 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.

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 chargefor 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)
