Had two appointments and was stood up both times. First time they put me in a room and forgot about me. They apologized up and down rescheduled. Second time they did the same thing. Been going to the Skin Center for years, but no more. The second time they didn't even call to explain. Dr. Galitzer is great but he needs to get staff with better scheduling abilities and respecting patients time.

The staff treat me like a client at a posh spa. They are kind, courteous, professional and caring. Dr Galitzer gave me the most thorough skin exam I have ever had and Mary, his PA was just as thorough and kind. I would cheerfully recommend this practice to everyone.

Dr. Barry Galitzer and his staff are exceptional. Dr. Galitzer did the most thorough exam I could imagine. He is very informative, great personality, very friendly and cares about his patients. His staff is the same. The young ladies at the reception as well as the nurses are very kind. I would highly recommend Dr. Galitzer.
