The less than stellar rating for this doc should have raised red flags. I was expecting a bit more thorough examination of my eczema, where I am have them, etc as well as just basic patient advice. I was the one who fielded all the questions and tried to pull as much info from him on what I should do and not do. Showed very little concern for my condition and was in a haste to get rid of me ASAP. Felt like as long as he wrote the prescriptions - his work is is done.

I felt very rushed, he was with me a total of three minutes. He did not answer my questions. Left feeling upset

Dr. Nieves did a good job of determining what could were some of the reasons behind my skin condition. Nieves however seemed very rushed and told me to use medicine that I already had and said to try that and come back in two weeks. I did not return, and went to see another dermatologist.

Long time patient of EWD, but had never seen Dr Nieves prior to bringing my teen daughter for facial outbreak. He barely looked at her face; said acne despite telling him of her tendency to have allergic reactions. He prescribed a strong cream - staring at his iPad whole time - I had to beg for more info. He said that her "acne" would show a 30% improvement in 3 mos with meds - her face cleared totally in 3 days. But not until after suffering a burning reaction to cream every night. NOT acne!

I brought my daughter to see Dr.Nieves for something on her face. He was extremely patient and kind, and explained what was going on with my daughter in a way we both understood. i had a great experience with Dr.Nieves and I would see him again for sure! Her condition has improved thanks to his medical recommendation.

Very professional, some people take this as if he is not friendly, this is his personality. Give him a chance, he is an excellent Doctor and if you need anything removed he will do an excellent job and you will not have a scar.
M.A. did not put all of my meds in my electronic chart which made a HUGE difference in Dr. Nieves' conclusion of my illness. M.A. was also rude. Dr. Nieves is very nice but rushed and did not listen well when I explained how my rash started, which, along with my missing meds caused him to draw a conclusion that was WAY OFF!!! I also had to ask him the same question every visit....finally got an answer on the 3rd !!
