Dr. Shnitkind seems knowledgeable but she is quick when she finally gets into the room to meet with you. However, my biggest issue is with rude, office staff. When I called with an emergency due to irregular mark, office staff wanted to schedule me over a month later. When i said it was emergency she said no it is not and the continued to tell me it was not an emergency over again when I asked to please get appt. She was rude and obnoxious -arrogant. I will no longer use Dr. Shnitkind -

I received top notch care every step of the way. Everyone in the office was warm, confident, and knowledgeable. The office is very clean and modern. I am glad to have a dermatologist who is a good listener as well as an excellent diagnostician. Dr Shnitkind is genuinely good doctor who cares for her patients. I highly recommend her to others.

Dr Shnitkind is an excellent dermatologist with a thorough method of diagnosing the root cause of skin issues. Her new office is very nice as well as her staff. Within days of seeing her my skin issues started to improve. I am sending my wife to see her next week!

Had a nasty, nasty rash on my hand. Dr Shnitkind spent enormous amount of time with me trying different approaches and combinations of drugs. Thanks to her knowledge she was able to cure me and fought for me with my insurance company until I received 4 thousand!!!! ( no joke!!) dollar prescription at no cost! Thank you Dr Shnitkind for all your dedication to my treatment . I also like to say thanks to all support staff at her office for being helpful and understanding. Miroslav
