Dr Santa was so incredibly professional, great bedside manner as well. I was a last minute emergency booking and she made sure to get me treatment right away. She assessed everything and was amazing at breaking down the terminology for meto understand. Before leaving she also made sure to let me know how to take the medication and what side effects it may have. When I left she also made sure I knew to call right away if anything else happens or my condition got worse. I will HIGHLY recommend this office and Dr Santa to my friends and family!

Absolutely AMAZING! Kind, caring and understanding of my daughters skin issue. She was respectful and inclusive in speaking with both of us about a treatment plan for her. We left with the feeling of relief and could not have made abetter decision to switch from another practice. Even my daughter made the comment that "She was awesome, Mom! Thanks!"

Dr. Santa is the best. She takes her time and is very thorough. I arrived early for my appointment and anticipated waiting, but was actually was out of the office before my scheduled appointment time. Great office and staff. Also, thebathroom across the hall from the office is a five star pooper. Private stalls and supple toilet paper... couldn't ask for more.

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!

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 ableto 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.

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.

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 andconcerns. 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 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.

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 myinsurance, 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.
