Riverside, NJ |
Don't see NP E. Morales. If his treatment is not working, he questions, shames, blames you. His treatment didn't work, diagnosis is wrong. He recommended I get a different antidepressant drug from my health professional. He also repeated that I should make his job EASIER - what health prof says that? HE should take script drugs for his attitude; he is condescending, unkind. Turns out a different dermatologist diagnosed a very rare skin disorder. His demeanor is irreparably hurtful.

Dr. Kessel took the time to explain what my skin conditions were. He talked about having some of the same issues that I had. He put me at ease and was very knowledgeable about explaining how my skin problems were not serious and how they could be treated. Very happy with this visit.

Was referred by Dr. Kessel by the nurses at the hospital I work. Called as a new patient and was able to get a appointment the next day- the receptionist was awesome. She gave me directions told me about printing out the forms etc. Dr. Kessel was extremely caring, kind and very detailed when he treated me. He was very respectful and answered all my questions. He was not rushed . The assistant Kimberly was a breath of fresh air. As a Registered Nurse I highly recommend Dr. Kessel and his staff.

My wife visited this place on 5/17/2016 to get treatment on rash on her hand. They took sample for fungus test and she was prescribed an ointment to treat fungus. She was scheduled an appointment after 1 month on 6/16/2016 for follow-up. When we visited on 6/16, we were told that fungus test was not even performed yet. It had been 1 month since we visited last time and still the test was not started. Then based on assumption that ointment will treat only fungus and there was bit improvement on h
