Dr. Bettencourt is very knowledgeable in her field. She has the best bedside manner. As a patient of hers for the last 3 years I have always been treated like a friend. She always showed genuine concern for her patient's problem. As a retired general surgeon of 30+ years' private practice, I fully understand that COMPASSION is the most important quality besides medical knowledge and skill that makes a fine HEALER. Dr. Bettencourt is also active in helping to educate the general public in her field. I consider it my honor to be her patient and friend. H. K. Poon, MD, FACS

Excellent dermatologist. Not only care and compassion, but very experienced and highly competent. Found a pre-cancerous mole for me that another doctor never caught and sent me off for a year saying no problems. I am fortunate to have Dr. Bettencourt as my dermatologist.

Dr. Bettencourt has an excellent bedside manner. She is Duke trained and an expert at her craft. Be sure to thoroughly explain the purpose for your visit to her nurse so she can zero in on your issues immediately. She has always been a leader in choosing the best skincare products and is highly knowledgeable in addressing all of my skin related concerns. On more than one occasion she identified and removed pre cancerous spots. If you ever went to a tanning salon or regularly baked your skin in the sun, make an appointment today. I've done the research, no one has an eye for irregular moles like Dr. Bettencourt.

I've had skin cancer twice, and both times, Dr. Bettencourt saw it in seconds, confirmed the diagnosis with 100% accuracy, and then dispatched it with unparalleled skill and with minimal scarring. I could not be more pleased with the result. I have numerous professional friends, many of whom are physicians, so I asked around for a referral. They all recommended Dr. Bettencourt as the best in town. In my view, they were right. I recommend her to all.

I have had several cancerous moles removed by Dr. Bettencourt. Several would never have hit my radar but she had a concern after a full body review. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field. Her answers to questions are easy to understand and are founded upon the concern and well being of the patient. I have been a patient for over eight years and have never been disappointed. Would highly recommend.

Dr. Bettencourt performed the MOHS surgery on me several years ago, and got a clear margin the first time! I have seen her regularly ever since, and find her to be knowledgeable, diligent and compassionate. I have recommended her to all my friends and family. She is top-notch!

Dr. Miriam S. Bettencourt was of the utmost help in clearing up my skin problems! She takes time in examining and explaining what approach is needed to cure my skin disorder. She takes the time to get to know her patients, I didn't feel like I was just another number coming into to see a physician. Her staff and assistants run a highly efficient office. I recommend her highly to anyone who has a skin problem.
