Thank you Dr Benmaman!

In November 2014 my daughter of 13 years began to suffer skin problems . We visited several dermatologist referred by her previous doctor. We went to see a dermatologist at Children Medical at Peabody without any results favorable. Then I decided to change my daughter to another primary care Dr Brenda Foley at Andover Medical Center part of the Pentucket Medical, excellent doctor. Desperate to find answers to her problem , Dr Foley referred my daughter with Dr Coty Benmaman (dermatologist) which thankfully gave us the answers that we were looking for. Thank you Dr Benmaman ! Thank you Gia ( nurse ) … thank you for your excellent service, kindness and professionalisms. 

Dr. Bloom is so genuine and likeable.

Choosing a Doctor is one of the many important decisions I will have to make for my son. I immediately felt at ease when I brought Noah for his first visit as an infant. Dr. Bloom is so genuine and likeable. His gentle approach with my baby and his sense of humor makes each visit a joy. On occasion we have been seen by a nurse practitioner. I find all the staff, from the front desk to the doctors and nurses, and allergist and lab staff, to all be so kind and so nice. There is no doubt I made the right choice for my son in choosing Pentucket Medical for his care.
