Patient reviews for Dr. Marguerite Critelli
Great experience everyone was professional and the visit was in and out. Made the appointment the same day.
Dr. Critelli and her team are great, but bring a book cause you’ll be waiting an hour.
Dr Critelli was thorough & knowledgeable and took a biopsy of area needing attention- used a bright light/magnifier to see close up -most Dermatologists r not as thorough - definitely going back !!
The concern I went there for was resolved...however, it was a long wait and kind of an odd interaction with the Dr. Not very talkative....but I'm happy because i left with a solution.
The staff were great. Friendly and polite. The office was really nice and I felt well cared for by the doc. Thank you
I was made to wait an hour my appt was at 10:30 I arrived 10 minutes early to fill out the paperwork. They took me into a room at 10:30 and the Dr showed up at 11:30. No explanation as to why I was made to wait or an apology for wasting so much of my time.
The office staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The office was relaxing, clean, and comfortable. I did not wait long at all for the doctor and she was delightful and to the point. I felt better as soon as I walked away from my appointment.
I took some time to write this review because I needed to think about it. 1) The front office staff was very nice and personable. No complaints here. 2) The back office staff was fine until they were coming in and out of my room. They did not consider my privacy (I was undressed) and did not knock when entering the room. The doctor did not knock when entering the room either. 3) I did not get the service I booked an appointment for. I wanted an annual skin screening, I described my request to the nurse/staff who escorted me back to the treatment room and I requested it again after the doctor left. It was told that the service I booked would be performed upon a next visit. 4) Nothing was explained to me in detail. It was cursory and rude and the doctor was dismissive, cold and unprofessional. 5) I got a second opinion on the treatment recommendation and the doctor was aghast at the treatment I described. I will not be back and I will be calling the office/medical group to write a more formal complaint.
She seemed to be very cautious and this is likely due to my allergies to most antibiotics. Treatment she chose for me had a positive result. Here, 2 months later, I must return since meds were completed a month ago; irritation and acne is returning.
Dr Critelli is very thorough and informative
