“Both Dr. Stanko and her assistant Sydney were the best! They were very personable and professional. In the real world, people don’t feel 100% comfortable and confident when being medically evaluated. As optimistic as they may want to be, it’s normal to feel a little nervous. Yet despite these premature feelings, Dr. Stanko made me feel comfortable and confident and in good hands. She explained everything, recommended a follow-up visit, and displayed human concern that really matters. I thank her and Sydney for making it a pleasant and an encouraging visit.”
“It has always been a pleasant experience to walk into Dr. Stanko’s offices. She is never too busy to take the time to speak with me with both kindness and patience. Her attitude is positive, upbeat and comforting at all times. Her ability to give the results, both medically and cosmetically, results in giving the trust one needs to return over and over, and to highly recommend Dr. Stanko with the upmost ease. Whenever I leave the office it’s with a smile, feeling secure and knowing I look a decade younger. Thank you Dr. Stanko…from a grateful patient.”
“Bryn Mawr Dermatology is an efficient and friendly office. From the moment you step in the door to the time you leave, you feel well cared for and comfortable. Dr. Stanko as well as all the staff are professional, kind, and helpful. I am so pleased with the consultation and treatments I received.”
“My mother had melanoma, so every time I have to get my skin checked I get very anxious, expecting the worst. That added on top of the anticipation of getting naked in front of a stranger makes me hesitant to attend my annual checks. I’ve had dermatologists in the past that seem to want to biopsy everything and those who hardly look at my skin. Rae Calamia, the PA at Bryn Mawr Dermatology, took the time to look at every one of my spots very thoroughly and left me feeling like my skin was safe and without an ounce of embarrassment. She even took the time to answer my (many) questions about fighting fine lines and wrinkles. When it is time to do this all over again next year, I won’t exactly look forward to it, but I won’t dread it either.”
“Thank you for the wonderful results from my rejuvenation treatment. I feel (and look) years younger. I had a combination of Radiesse, Juvederm and Restylane to help with my under eyes, thinning lips and marionette lines. Dr. Stanko made the whole process very comfortable and I left the office with instant improvement and no downtime. As a busy physician in Philadelphia, I am aware of the many choices we have for cosmetic treatment. I chose Dr. Stanko, a dermatologist, specifically because of her training in the skin and aging. Surgery (and recovery time) was not an option for me. I look better than I have in years and it took less than an hour. I especially appreciated Dr. Stanko’s individualized attention and artistry, which gave me very natural results. I will be returning for touch-ups as needed. Thanks to Dr. Stanko and her friendly staff.”
“I first came to Dr. Stanko because of a skin condition, which turned out to be an allergic reaction to bug bites. Dr. Stanko was very proactive helping me with my situation. Once that condition was under control, she asked if I had ever had a full-body screening since I was around the age where I should have that done. I scheduled an appointment to have the screening. Dr. Stanko saw a suspicious mole on my back and took a biopsy. The biopsy came back suspicious so the mole was removed. It turned out that it was melanoma and I needed to have a bigger section removed.
I am so grateful that Dr. Stanko encouraged me to get checked and that the melanoma was caught early enough that it was removed. I have returned for my follow-up screenings and did have another questionable spot, which was removed. I feel that Dr. Stanko saved my life that day she recommended the full-body screening. I really don’t know when I would have made the decision or the time to have the screening done.
Dr. Stanko has educated me as to the importance of regular eye exams, dental exams and mammograms since I have had melanoma. I feel that she has taken extra steps to ensure that my overall health is the priority.”
"Kimber was very courteous and friendly...she had a nice tone of voice while giving the facial. It was very relaxing. She described every step of the process, which I liked."
"Kimber was very pleasant and explained everything she was doing. I thought my face looked great and it felt so much different than when I arrived."
"I have been in the care of Bryn Mawr Dermatology and Rae Calamia for about a year and a half. In that time Rae has identified three spots that required Moh's Surgery removal... All were identified as Basal Cell Carcinoma and successfully removed clean. My rosacea is now comfortably being controlled. I am extremely happy with the diligence and patience of your entire staff."
"Loved Marisa!! ...She made me feel so comfortable and at ease to be getting this treatment. She was also very detailed in what to expect and listened to my needs as well"
“Marisa was excellent, very cautious, efficient and very patient and thorough. Explained everything very well. Great job!"
"Marisa is very thorough with her processes and treatments. Very personable, I enjoy my time with her very much, like an old friend. Thank you."
"Marisa was so sweet! She was very kind in explaining to me the details of my treatment and making sure I had no additional concerns or questions. The entire procedure she was checking in with me, answering questions knowledgeably and making my comfort a priority. From an establishment where I expect the best care during my treatments, Marisa did not disappoint."
“I found Dr. Stanko and her staff to be both professional and personable. They spent the time with me that was needed to discuss the outcome I was seeking and only performed the procedures that were necessary. In the world of cosmetic procedures, some offices will try to oversell, but NOT here. Dr. Stanko clearly wants to establish long term relationships and will only do what she thinks is in her patients best interests. I would highly recommend her services.”

“My very first esthetic treatment was with Kimber at Bryn Mawr Dermatology…Kimber was super warm and kind, which made me feel comfortable and relieved my uneasiness. She took the time to discuss all my different options and we agreed on the Fire & Ice facial because I needed minimal downtime due to an upcoming event (my sister’s wedding). Kimber explained each step of the process and really took her time; I left feeling confident that the peel was worth the price…My face was pink for a day, but after that subsided it felt smooth, moisturized and clear! My face is glowing! The front office staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable as well. It was a great experience from start to finish and I definitely will be back for future treatments.”
“My first experience with a chemical peel was an excellent one due to the aesthetician Kimber at Bryn Mawr Dermatology. She gave me a quick glycolic peel that left my skin red for a few days, but feeling wonderful after! Kimber was efficient, but meticulous. She made sure to explain to me how the peel would feel when she put it on, how long it would be left on, and what to expect after. I was nervous at first, having never had a peel, but Kimber definitely helped put me at ease. I have since continued to come to Kimber anytime my skin needed a “refresher”!
