Ask LOTS of questions!

Dr. Carucci may know his stuff, but he does not communicate what you are in for along the way. He just kind of goes about his business, doing his thing and moving along. The extent of what I was in for was never explained. I went from MOHs to flap surgery all in the same day. I had NO idea what that even meant. Absolutely NO anethesia of any kind is offered - all this torture done under local! My recommendation is to ask A LOT of questions and make sure you know exactly what you are in for!

I had great expectations in seeing him, given his resume to address my skin cancer. Sadly, he came into the room, with 2 residents behind him, introduced himself, stood over me while I was sitting. Placed himself well above my natural site line so I had to strain my neck to look at him. Then he provided speed-mouth monolog that lasted approximately 5 minutes, but seemed like 30. Essentially, he told me how good the procedure was, but provided no information on what occurred or what results I might expect. He marked the spot where he planned the surgery, asked his assistant to take photos. Then essentially, on his way out the door, asked if I had any questions. I found nothing to recommend him, other than his resume.
