Even though Dr. Kolansky wasn’t in the exam room very long, he took one look at my arm, stated what he thought it was (an allergic reaction to laundry detergent), prescribed a cream but said just change my detergent to free & clear. Did that and the condition cleared up immediately. I had gone to a different dermatologist before him who spent more time in the exam room with me, prescribed a medication that did NOTHING but make it worse, and after several months it didn’t get better, UNTIL I went to Dr. Kolansky. Also, the other dermatologist’s diagnosis was wrong. I was miserable, until I went to Dr. Kolansky. I’ll take less time with a doctor that gets it right over more time with a doctor that gets it wrong any day!

He is an excellent physician, capable of thinking outside the box to solve a problem where other doctors fail. He is generous with samples and is able to order personalized prescriptions to specifically alleviate persistent skin problems. This is a professional who really knows his “stuff” !!!

Dr Kolansky is without a doubt the most thorough diagnostician I ever visited. He recently took a scraping of a suspicious looking mole on my arm which after a biopsy turned out to be malignant melanoma requiring immediate surgery to have it removed. Dr Kolansky was able to discuss my case with the Surgeon and within 3 days the melanoma was removed. Dr Kolansky is the best Dermatologist I have ever been to! His diagnostic skills,immediate intervention, and the fact that he called me after the biopsy came back and personally intervened by setting up my appointment with one of the top surgeons in his field may have saved my life!

Dr. Glenn Kolansky changed my life for the better. I’m so grateful to God that I was recommended to him. First, the staff, his team, are so very polite and helpful, I feel welcomed and at ease when I go in. When I think of medical efficacy, I think of Dr. Kolansky. He is the epitome of professional, kind, and knowledgeable. Quite frankly, he is the most down to earth physician a person can have. Dr. Glenn Kolansky truly is the operational definition of what a doctor should be. His genuine care and respect for his patients radiates from the moment he greets you until your appointment is over. If I could ask Medical Schools to offer a class on how to be the type of doctor everyone hopes to have in their time of medical attention, I’d tell the Medical Schools to have Dr.Kolansky teach it. Thank you Dr. Kolansky for being THE BEST Dermatologist a gal can have. You’ve given me confidence and hope. I’m blessed to be your patient. Thank you and God bless you and your team always.

Dr. Kolansky has been taking care of me and my family for many years now. He is a skilled dermatologist that treats his patients with kindness and compassion. He has performed 2 facial Mohs's surgeries on me and you couldn't tell I ever had surgery. My appointments are always quick with minimal waiting. Office staff including nurses are terrific as well. I highly recommend Dr. K.

Dr. Kolansky helped my mother by removing the stage one skin cancer on her nose. Worried that the puncture procedure wound would be disfiguring, Dr. Kolansky and his staff spent extra time comforting and reassuring my mother that everything would be okay. She could not be happier, or more relieved with her clean bill of health and uncompromised appearance.

Dr. Kolansky is intelligent, friendly, polite, and caring. My father was referred to him by our family physician. I looked up his credentials and was impressed to see he had won New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor Award in 2017. I also found out many people we know use and love him. I went to see him with my dad, he walked into the room and immediately saw the cancer spots on my father's face, marked them and biopsied each one right there in the office. He also pointed out that the lump on my dad's

Dr. Kolansky is a great Doctor. His expertise is invaluable especially when not so good biopsies come back and your faced with what to do. He has an amazing amount of compassion. I trust him completely with me and my whole family. Sometimes he’s very busy and you have to wait but it’s well worth it. You won’t be disappointed.

I have been seeing Dr. Kolansky for ten years. The office has improved during that period. The staff goes out of their way to explain each procedure. Dr. Kolansky, as well, is NEVER impatient or rushed during the visit. He does not initiate any conversation regarding cosmetic procedures, but responds to the reason for the visit. I find him thoroughly professional and compassionate.
