The doctor is kind and thorough and wonderful. Her staff is friendly and kept me at ease. She is wonderful and saved my life. Dr. Monticciolo found something other dermatologists thought was nothing and it was a cancer. So happy to have found women providers who are thorough and care to talk to their patients and examine them instead of brushing them off and saying their spot is nothing. Glad I found Prestige Dermayology and would recommend them to everyone!!

I can't even explain what my experience was like. The Doctor swirled into the exam room dressed to the nines; hair out to here like she just came in from a photo shoot, makeup, long nails, dripping with jewelry, spike heels, fashionista with a short skirt, wearing an open lab coat with the sleeves fashionably folded up. She was followed by two of her assistants or medical students or whoever they were who were carbon copies of her. Here i was feeling so uncomfortable and nervous, hoping i didn't have skin cancer. I was wearing a tee shirt and blue jeans. And these three "reality stars" (they looked like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) made me feel so unattractive. A quick biopsy was done, and then the Doctor recommended her brand of gentle facial cleanser, and her assistant pointed out the Doctor's beautiful long eyelashes and suggested i buy the eyelash growing formula too. I felt like i was at a high-end beauty salon, not at a Doctor's office.

Prestige Dermatology drained my HRA account by charging me for unnecessary services/procedures! I was originally told that I would get 3 "pre-cancerous" spots removed at one particular appt. They called this procedure, "surgery". Once I arrived at appt, in "surgery" room, they told me that I would need to separate the "surgeries" and have one conducted each day that week because the numbing injection could cause heart palpations...even though, it was the SAME type of injection that they used on me 6 times before in one appt to perform 6 biopsies, 3 weeks before!! These "surgeries" were then separated and I received a bill from my insurance for $650, (the deductible required after all of my yearly HRA funds are used). They charged my insurance $850 a "surgery"!!! These 3 "surgeries" X $850= $2,550!!! These were 3 tiny moles that were removed and stitched!!! All of these "surgeries", as she called and billed them, could have been conducted in one appt, but instead they were separated into 3 appts so that Prestige could bill me 3 separate times! I feel robbed! Not too mention that after I confirmed my stitch removal appt, the billing dept., called me less than 24 hours before my scheduled appt and told me that my insurance had processed and that they would not cover $650, (deductible mentioned above), and that I had to pay it BEFORE my appt. At that point, I had not received any invoice, explanation from insurance or claim information...just her "word" over the phone! I told her that I did not have the money to pay at that time and she insisted that I pay half. I verified online with my insurance and it said that the claim was still "pending". Needless to say, I had my primary remove stitches and I have NOT been back. I feel violated, robbed and disrespected. Prestige charged my insurance over $3,900 for 6 biopsies and 3 small mole removals, all over the course of 1 month!!! Never again!!

Prestige Dermatology will charge you MORE (much more) if you have insurance than if you do not have insurance. That is some advice I learned the hard way. When they ask do you have insurance tell them NO! The only reason they got caught was my girlfriend had the same procedures done (plus more) before me (she recommended this place to me) without having any insurance, so I had an idea of how much it was going to cost me. After receiving my bills a few hundred more than my girlfriends I called them to ask what happened, Jody in billing said "It is because you have insurance". So let me get this straight, I pay a monthly fee to have insurance and I have to pay my co pay/deductable, all to pay more for the same service that somebody else can get much cheaper without paying anything to any insurance company. Then when I asked Jody "Why didn't you tell me before that I can pay XX dollars for these procedure WITHOUT insurance or pay XX+more dollars WITH insurance" her response is "It would be illegal to have insurance and not use it". Now I am really confused, I pay money to have a choice to have/use my insurance, if I want to walk in a dr office and pay cash just like someone else can, how is that illegal? Long story short this place is unethical and discriminates against (and takes advantage of) people who try and do things the right way.

I was treated by Dr.Monticello May, 2010, for spider veins using sclerotherapy. I have had the therapy many times by my dermatologist in Princeton, NJ. She did not appear to understand the procedure and simply injected the solution anywhere instead of into the ends of the spider veins. Not one vein disappeared. The charge is $270 not paid by insurance and is a total rip off. I am returning to my doctor in NJ this summer for the treatment.

It's like an assembly line in there. Waiting room full of patients and you see them come in and out in a minute or 2.

Dr. Monticello is beautiful and intelligent. She has a great bed side manner. Once she gets into your room she is quick and precise and she makes you feel comfortable. She offers a variety of services. Check her out if you can.
