    How was your appointment with Dr. Balestra?

    Dec 07, 2022
    Dr. Balestra is the only person I would trust for Moh’s surgery. She is a caring, highly experienced specialized Moh’s surgeon who has a wonderful bed side manner - a rare find in this world these days! She explains in detail what is happening every step of the way and makes you feel very comfortable during a very worrisome situation. Dr. Balestra is precise and detailed with her work and will do her very best to make sure you have minimal scaring. Moh’s can be quite scary, but Dr. Balestra and her office staff will make you feel very relaxed and at ease. This is not the kind of appointment where you will be in and out, so be prepared to be patient but you will feel relieved when it’s over! In my two experiences with Moh’s procedures, I’ve had no complaints. I can’t comment on any other Dermatologist in this practice as she is the only one I have seen, but I would highly recommend Dr. Balestra for the specialty of Moh’s surgery - you will absolutely be in the very best hands with her!!
