Wooooow ! Finally Dr who cares and knows. Dr Garofalo explained carefully what skin problems do I have, how to treat them ,what results can I expect and what I can not. Nurses are very polite and knowledgeable. Everything took just enough required time, not careless fast, not necessarily slow. Is it accidental or this is the way they work? After this first visit I'm very satisfied.

Dr Garofalo is a wonderful,caring and professioal doctor who really cares about his patients. Can't say enough about him.
Dr. Garofalo is a very good doctor who is thorough with his examinations. I received a full body check for moles and he spent a great deal of time make sure he looked over every inch of my body carefully. Upon finishing the exam, I had plenty of questions to ask him from things like acne to moles. He answered all of them and made sure I understood the best way to take care of my skin. Highly recommend
