Dr. De la Fuente is very knowledgeable and explained everything in detail. Dad and I were very impressed with the professionalism of the 3 providers in the office. There was the doctor, Fellow and his nurse. They were wonderful. The Fellow looked at Dad's melanoma, rebandaged it and gave me an extra one. Little things mean a lot. It was a caring gesture. Dr de la Fuente explained everything to us in a way we understood using a white board. Dad really liked him and trusts him and that is what is important.

I didn't get any feedback after surgery. I am assuming that will come when I see Dr. in two weeks.

Dr. De La Fuente and his staff made me feel like I was their only patient, and made me feel confident and comfortable that they would take good care of me. The person who mapped out my lymph nodes (I think radiology department) was excellent too! (wish I could remember his name)
