He walked in the room seeing my kids for the first time for acne and already had a plan. While I am sure he knew a standard that he would start with , even my kids said out loud they felt ignored and wondered if he even looked at their skin. He spent more time with the students than talking to my kids. While, the plan is working, I don't know if I would even suggest him to others. The wait time is ridiculous both making an appointment and waiting in the waiting room.

I think Dr. Huerter is smart and informative. I like that he has students with him much of the time. To me it means he is always teaching. Based on Dr. Huerter's good character, I am confident he'll want to pass on to the students the proper medical standards of care and treatment. He's the type of man who understands what he teaches these kids today - echos into the future for the benefit of generations of patients to come. Those who Dr. Huerter will never know.

Very happy. Described my condition, removed a bothersome mole behind my ear, and froze one on my spine. Very professional and friendly.

I have quite a rough two years, seen many doctors, been to Urgent Care and ER's. I was feeling discouraged and when I first saw Dr. Huerter, he reassured me that we would get to the bottom of this. He even gave me a particular phone # to call as my condition did require immediate attention. After a few months of trying this and that, he put me on a med that is meant to solve this. So far so good. He's a really good doctor.

he was efficient, kind, and reassuring. He answered my questions and did not perform unnecessary procedures which was wonderful. He is conscientious of how much drugs cost which is refreshing and is up to date on innovative treatments while realizing their cost. He uses the old tried and true drugs which are infinitely cheaper when possible and ramps it up as needed.

Dr Heurter seems more concerned with his new medical gadgets. He spent less than 5 min was unwilling to try anything new, when obviously his treatment was not helping. At 1 visit he yelled at me in front of some woman he did not even get my consent to be there . He is rude, disrespectful...a poor dr.

Would not recommend this doctor at all. I waited for 35 minutes for him to come in, have him glance at me and prescribe me some meds (which would send me to the hospital, but he didn't look at my history) and then tell me to do something that I've already tried and that is very painful. Wouldn't listen to me when he would allow me to get a word in. Spent a total of three an a half minutes with me before leaving. I wish I could get a refund for this.

I have seen several different dematologists in three major cities, and Dr. Huerter is by far the best! I highly recommended him. It's hard to find a good caring dermatologist that is interested in solving your problem...not just focusing on cosmetic issues.
