When is an appointment not an appointment? When it's with Cheryl Effron, MD. I waited three months for an appointment and went to Effron's office only to be told that the doctor wasn't in. I showed the rude front desk lady my appointment card and she said that they send out letters and phoned clients to tell them that all appointments for the day were cancelled. Lies. I never received a letter, call, voicemail, or text message. I paid for an overpriced consultation for a procedure that never happened. Their next appointment was three weeks away. Two weeks after I'll leave for a three month trip. What a waste of time and money!

Both my husband and I have been patients of Dr Effron for well over 10 years. We have seen her for skin cancer treatment, cysts, skin checks for moles and other discolorations and she has exceeded our expectations in her professionalism and treatment of all these issues. She has also treated me for cosmetic procedures and is very honest and fair in her assessments and treatments. I have no reservations in saying I completely trust Dr Effron as a reliable, professional and caring physician

I have been seeing doctor Cheryl Effron for over 20 years easily. She is a marvelous doctor. She works miracles! She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. And she is cautious and also cares for her patients. Her staff is also very professional. I have had to see other dermatologists over the years because of being in a different country or state; she has ALWAYS been the best overall. With pricing and most importantly her miracles. And she is a kind person inside without a doubt. Kenji B.
