“I just wanted to drop a line to let you know how excellent NP Stephanie is at your Marco Island office. Only twice in my life have I encountered a practitioner who was so genuinely cool, nice, knowledgeable, open to answering my questions, and patient with all of my concerns. She is definitely a gem and an asset to your practice! Her medical assistant (Cortney, I think) was also very helpful, kind, and efficient. I will definitely be returning to your facility to see them whenever I have dermatology concerns, and I have rec’d my friends and family to see her as well should any problems arise. Thank you!”
“Stephanie brought in another doctor and worked together to make sure I had the best care possible. I couldn’t be more thankful!”
“Stephanie was thorough in explaining what my skin issue was and resolutions . She also gave me recommendations for products to use, plus gave me some samples.”
