Even though they were behind, the doctor didn't feel rushed and took her time with me. She did use a lot of medical words I didn't understand for her assistant to enter into the computer. I wish she would've explained what she meant by that verses me trying to decide what I should ask and what wasn't important for me to be able to define.

I was running late 15-20 mins for my appt and called the clinic 45 mins before my appt to let them know. I live an hour from NM and have been coming here for decades. The Derm clinic and Dr. Colavincecenzo were understanding and accommodating! I appreciate it and can't thank them enough!

Care--time, expertise, thoroughness, concern--exceeded my hopes. It was worth the months of waiting and the two-hour commute to see her. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Colavincenzo. Personally, it was also amazing to be visited by an all female team for a female "issue."

Dr Colavincenzo is extremely thorough explaining everything I asked or discussed with her. she never once made me feel that my questions were irrelevant or unimportant. to the contrary she validated many of my own explorations to remedy my hair loss problem. She was the mostcomprehensive in her approach raising questions that I may nothave thought of. she is one of my favorite doctors and would recommend her highly to anyone with hair loss.
