Patient Reviews (5)
Boynton Beach, FL |
Went to three dermatologists and he is the only one that biopsied my skin, the other two Doctors just guessed at the problem.

This practice is horrific! I took my mother in for her procedure and they refused to allow me in the room with her, even after I explained she was a dementia patient and it was in everyone's best interest if I were in attendance. Needless to say, things did not end well. During the second visit, my mom ended up on the FLOOR because they did not help her off the exam table! For further details on this experience, please review my full posting on yelp and google. DO NOT USE THIS PRACTICE!

First of all the office was dirty (floors) second the examination table/chair had duct tape on it. The doctor was very brief and communicated very little. He gave no instructions as to how to take care of the biopsy site. I was denied entry into the exam room to comfort my husband who was concerned about the possible cancer diagnosis. I was told that the exam room was too small for the both of us. Why was it big enough for first time we say that doctor. We will not be back!

This doctor gave me incorrect information about medication. He would rather endanger his patients health than read the medical literature.
in Lighthouse Point, FL |
The Doctor did not, in my opinion, use due care when burning off some skin conditions. I was left with a dime sized, puss filled, hole in my leg for many weeks. When it finally healed I received a bill for the additional visits! I guess being a doctor with a practice, is much harder than it seems.
