Rachel Bertuzzi was wonderful. She explained things clearly to me and was able to explain it to my young daughter in a way that she would understand as well.

this is our 2nd visit with Bertuzzi. She takes her time to explain EVERYTHING! which is something we never received from other practitioners.

My daughter could only get in to see a NP the next day - I didn't know what to expect and was annoyed we couldn't get her regular Derm. Rachel was AMAZING! such a good experience - thoughtful, smart, kind. You should pay her more....I left super happy instead of looking for another practice.
