Review of Dr. McFerren

-

Arrogant doctor who made some very inappropriate comments to me. In addition, he misdiagnosed me which caused me to suffer with my condition even longer. It took months and three dermatologists in this office to diagnose a run of the mill skin allergy. Scary and unnecessary suffering and expense for me. Be aware that you will be prescribed the most expensive cream or prescription. Dr. McFerren prescribed a small tube of cream that cost $800. Literally--$800. I had to leave the pharmacy, and have the generic one called into the pharmacy. That one cost $15 and was perfectly effective. The name of the game in this office is make patients wait months and months for appointments and prescribe the most expensive treatment possible. I was told I had to go to a different pharmacy than my own because they had "a relationship" with that pharmacy. Money comes first in this office. I left after many years of being taken advantage of and treated poorly. I waited 15 minutes each time I called.

What an arrogant unprofessional individual. The worst bedside manner I have ever encountered. I will never go back to this man. Why anyone would want to undergo his rude demeanor is beyond me.

Review of Dr. Goldberg

-

The wait time to see Dr. Goldberg is just disrespectful to patients who have places to be besides a waiting room. I have waited an hour and 50 minutes to see him without an apology---ever. Do not expect any signs of a personality from him. He is in and out of the room as quickly as possible. It is just form for doctors in this office to prescribe the most expensive cream, prescription possible. I was prescribed an ointment that was $800 for a small tube. ALWAYS ask for the generic.

Review of Dr. Zirn

-

Rudest doctor I ever came across. Didn't think a doctor could make me cry and belittle me due to me thinking I had hives on my skin instead it was eczema. He stormed in angry and didn't even introduce himself. He spent a spent a total of 5 minutes with me not educating me about what's wrong with my skin on my hands but belittling me yelling it's eczema don't you know the difference between the two do you need a computer to go Google the difference between them. Should not be a doctor!

Review of Dr. Clairwood

- in Waterbury, CT |

Excellent doctor, she is kind and compassionate and really listens to you. She is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. I would recommend her to everyone. She spends time with you, does not rush you at all. I also found her to be very intelligent.

Review of Dr. Clairwood

- in CT |

I went to Dr. Clairwood for a second opinion after the cream my regular dermatologist prescribed did not seem to helping. Dr. Clairwood took her time during my appointment and addressed my concerns. She suspected right away and was correct in determining that my other dermatologist had misdiagnosed me. Thanks to Dr. Clairwood, I was better in a week! She is very patient and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend her.
