It was such a pleasure to be welcomed by knowledgeable staff and treated in a professional and friendly manner which you can't find very often anymore ! I left amazed and thankful to have a good experience ! Gold stars for this team !
Dr. Santa and Cheryl were wonderful- they put me at ease and were conversational, professional and it was a great visit!
She was very kind and willing to give me the time I needed to feel fully prepared. She informed me and gave me the necessary documents. However, I did not feel like she provide me with all the information necessary for my next step in the process.
Professional, personable, and effective. An excellent doctor and great person!
Dr.Lynn and her staffs are professionally good, they listens and treat nice with patience.

She really took her time with me and answered all my questions. She's very through and understanding.
Dr. Santa has the nicest bedside manner. She is so easy to talk to and she really listens. I never felt like she was in a rush to get to the next patient during my appointment. My other family members will also see Dr. Santa whenever they need a dermatologist.
Very professional and accommodating to all your questions. Very pleased with practice,
This office and Dr Santa are great. I recently moved to the area and was in need of a new Dermatologist. I've been used to waiting for a long time and then being rushed through once my name was called. Fortunately, this wasn't the case here. Everyone was very helpful and answered all my questions. I didn't have to wait, and my whole visit lasted less than a half hour. The office is also seems brand new, as it was very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend this place!
I enjoy my visit it was my first time with Dr. Santa. She came in a nice hand shake welcome me and straight to the point. Outstanding service?? Thank you, T
I thought my visit was lovely. Every individual i worked with was curious and informed. They were thorough and conscientious of individual need.
Dr. Santa is both very friendly and professional. I would recommend her highly.
Dr. Santa is an excellent provider!!! I am fortunate to have had her as my dermatologist! I have had numerous in the past and have never seemed to find any that seem to truly care. Amazing how quickly I was able to get an appointment and see such a great physician. On the other hand, the front desk workers need to learn some manners and common courtesy. I have been to many doctors offices in my life, more than I can count, and these front desk workers were probably the rudest I had ever encountered. If I was Dr. Santa I would be upset that my patients would be coming to me after dealing with them. Personally, I am in the medical field and did not care about this at all...but I know this would absolutely irk some patients. I was instructed to strip down to my under garments by the MA, and told me Dr. Santa would be in shortly. And there I waited, for almost 45 mins in a cold room, half naked, without any gown to put on or blanket to be covered. Again, it did not bother me too much, but I know many patients I deal with everyday would absolutely be horrified by this. A gown should be offered, or clothes should not be removed until the doctor arrives. Again, so thankful to have found Dr. Santa and very happy to have a dermatologist who I feel confident in after having many who I did not feel were great providers.
We were sold some in-house medication at the doctor's office and its been more than 3 months without any improvements so far.. so planning to look for an another doctor who can help..
Personable, professional, thorough and a good listener. She and the staff were tops! Would recommend highly.
The Villanova office is clean (only a year old). I was there for an annual screening which I thought Dr. Santa performed thoroughly. She was unsure if she should biopsy a spot (really her main concern was due to family history), but she was fine when I said I didn't think it was necessary. I like that she included me in her thinking. As awkward as it is to meet someone in one of those gowns, Dr. Santa could not have made me feel more comfortable, asking about summer vacations and telling me about hers (ie. excellent bedside manner). Dana, who got the history and concerns at the beginning was also very nice. Not having anything removed I can't speak to her surgery skills.
Dr. Santa is a professional and knowledgeable person.
Extremely personable. She made me very comfortable havingmy first filler treatment
Thorough review of my condition. Answered questions and willing to listen.
My 4 yr. old son has had eczema since birth. We moved to PA from NC and we were looking to establish care with a dermatologist in the area. Dr. Santa was professional and very thorough. She addressed our questions and concerns. I was so pleased with the visit, I have scheduled an appointment for myself with her to have a skin check and discuss my psoriasis. I would definitely recommend Dr. Santa.
Dr. Santa, and the entire staff at Bryn Mawr Dermatology in Villanova, are the best. Dr. Santa actually listens and is extremely thorough. She is incredibly sweet and easy to talk to. She is my derm for life!! Thank you!
Dr. Santa is friendly and caring - I could tell right away she genuinely wants the best for her patients. I like how my appointments typically run at least 20-30 minutes so I can discuss all my questions without feeling rushed. She's helped me through so many skin problems I've been having and I'm very grateful! Also, I never wait more than 10 minutes to be seen, which is great.
Very straightforward and professional. Overall, very pleased.
Dr Santa is excellent and I highly recommend her. She does not rush your appt and allows you to ask as many questions as you need. The staff is very attentive and professional as well.
I had a different dermatologist office that I had been to a few times before, but this was my first visit with Dr. Santa at BMD. I used to have the impression dermatologists would cut spots off just to bill my insurance, which is why I wanted to find a new office. Dr. Santa was so easy-going and even took my appointment early. The skin exam was a lot quicker than it used to be, but I should have asked more questions or spoke up about trouble spots. I should have built more of a rapport, but all in all it was a successful visit. I would recommend Dr. Santa to anyone that is looking for a dermatologist.
I love her. She has a great bedside manner, very sweet, and seems to really care about her patients. Highly recommend her!
I was very pleased with Dr. Erin Santa. She immediately put my son at ease and he felt very comfortable talking to her. She's an excellent communicator and an extremely knowledgeable dermatologist. My son and I both left her office feeling very happy we had chosen Dr. Santa and our entire family will continue to see her in the future for any of our dermatological needs. She has an excellent bedside manner. I will recommend her to all of my friends.
She is a upbeat pleasant Dr.
Dr Santa is extremely knowledgeable and absolutely wants what is best for your skin. If you are looking for someone who will take there time with you to explain treatments and products, I recommend Dr. Santa.
Everyone at Bryn Mawr Dermatology is extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Dr. Santa is fantastic! She made me feel very comfortable, listened to my concerns / issues, and answered all of my questions (and I had a lot!). I highly recommend this practice and Dr. Santa.
Dr Santa is very friendly and professional
Great bedside manner, very friendly and patient with me and my son. Eager to assist with my requests and she has a gentle touch. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Santa was kind and knowledgeable, she answered my questions and without me having to ask a ton of questions, let me know exactly the scope of my diagnosis. The office is also very nice, including the women at the front desk who were kind even at the end of a very long day where they had to double book tons of patients for an impending blizzard.
Dr Santa was very professional & honest, and I will be back again and will highly recommend her to my friends.
Dr. Santa was very knowledgeable and efficient. Will definitely be a returning patient!
Erin and staff are very nice and very professional. They had me in and out fast for both of my visits and gave me some good advice for my condition. The only thing I could suggest is to have common questions for clients relating to their conditions. I always think of questions after I leave and I imagine most of them are common questions people might ask.
The office is clean and well organized - very efficient. Quite happy to have found this practice,
My condition was not as critical or acute but I felt rushed. I would have preferred more time with the Doctor.
The ease of making an immediate appointment on line, the convenience and availability of evening hours with a dermatologist is a rarity in this area. I had a growth that was concerning. My regular dermatologist had a four month wait! That is unacceptable when a patient develops an issue that requires somewhat immediate attention. Very pleased clinically and personally. My only suggestion would be to offer an online portal whereby patients can access lab results.
Dr Santa's, knowledge is more than skin deep. She has extensive knowledge about autoimmune issues and the different body systems. She is conservative in her treatment, really listens to the patient, doesn't make you feel rushed and is available for questions after you leave the office. Did I mention how nice Dr. Santa is, not just smart? ;-) Very happy I found this practice and Dr. Santa.
Great bedside manner. 2/2 for taking me on time. That is huge for derm!!
She was very attentive and I didn't feel like I was being rushed out at all
She was so personable and nice. Answered all of my questions without hesitation and listened to me!
Dr. Santa was extremely kind and made me feel at ease.
First time a dermatologist took me on time!!!!
My first impression of the practice was 100% negative. Just 5 minutes into the appointment and I already told myself, "I gotta find a different practice". The nurse was very rude and did not want to communicate with me. She was not speaking professionally and did not make me feel comfortable. However, when Dr. Santa walked into the room, my opinion turned 180 degrees. Dr. Santa was absolutely amazing. She did not make me feel like she was rushing to get to the next patient. She patiently listened to me explaining my issues. I definitely think Dr. Santa is great, but perhaps a different nurse would've made my experience today better.
Dr. Santa was a true professional. My procedure was painless and efficient!
Having a lesion removed on my neck and was quite concerned and nervous. I was fearful I would feel the cutting and stitching. Dr. Santa put me at ease immediately, and I didn't feel a thing!!! She is a great and caring surgeon!!!
Very thorough and took time to explain what she was looking for!
Dr. Santa was incredibly pleasant and very caring. She was quick and confident as well. Highly recommended! The PA and front desk staff were also very nice.
Dr. Santa was great!! Really took her time and addressed my concerns !
