Overall and over the years, I've been very satisfied with Dermatology Group and its doctors. However, on January 17 I had a consultation appointment with Dr. Seth Matarasso. Without explanation, he removed his mask during the approximately ten-minute consultation while I remained masked. I was and am concerned that he would violate protocols during the highly contagious omicron variant COVID pandemic. While in the office complex, I saw no other staff or patients in the waiting area unmasked.
