Dr. Filiberto Cedeno Laurent and his staff are amazing!!! I feel very comfortable knowing that he answers all of my questions thoroughly. I don’t have to worry about writing anything down because I get a detailed hard copy and an e-copyof my progress and what we discussed during the appointment. After trying few nearby dermatologists, I have not found one as thorough and helpful as Dr. Filiberto Cedeno Laurent! His staff are also very welcoming, patient, and helpful. There are many kinds of treatments available to try, and his staff, nor himself, don’t push all the expensive things first. All of the staff have a passion for what they do and always put their patients first. Highly recommend.

Very positive experience in the office, beginning to end. Very friendly and attentive staff. Doctor Laurent is personable and addressed all my issues in a very thorough way. Loved the fact that he considered my input to elaborate my treatmentplan. He put all my instructions in writing with a lot of detail so that when I left the office I felt very comfortable of what and how to do. Furthermore, one of my medications required a prior authorization and the office processed it within 2 hours, something that I did not have in any other office. I am bringing my kids back for a consultation next week.

I would not recommend this doctor. He was not friendly at all and had an attitude. He was not helpful in resolving any of my skin concerns and did not tell me anything I couldn’t have googled myself. At the endof my appointment I felt like I had no answers to anything. He didn’t even offer the courtesy of walking me out when I was leaving. I had to find the exit door myself.

I was a new patient when I visited this office for a very severe and uncomfortable skin condition I'd been battling for over a year. Upon my arrival I immediately noticed a very clean, organized space, and elegantly designed waiting area.All the staff greeted me when I walked in and offered us (husband and I) snacks and water while we waited. I found it interesting that Dr. Cendeno Laurent was featured in several magazines that were spread on the reception desk. After only a couple minutes of waiting, I was escorted to the back where the doctor greeted me with a big smile and firm handshake. He was very receptive and understanding of my issue and seemed genuinely concerned. He offered very good advice and seemed completely confident in his approach to my recovery. Overall, I was very impressed and I feel confident with my treatment plan. I definitely would recommend this office and I look forward to future appointments.

Everyone we had contact with inhis office was very friendly. Location was a bit far for me, but would definitely travel the distance again. We were very happy with our visit.
