I would leave zero stars but this is not an option. I paid cash to see Dr. Nicole Bender; Gretchen Zirbel was her supervising doctor. I was refused to have my cysts looked at, every one of my nail were ingrown & refused to be looked at. I was refused bloodwork & cancer screening. The 5 minutes I was there the ONLY thing that was looked at was the fact I take antidepressants for depression. Nicole Bender & Gretchen Zirbel slandered me on my medical charts in a note to my psychiatrist that I brought in a "bag of wood chips, rocks & candywrappers"! I was prescribed 2 medicines for "nothing wrong with me" that made ALL my hair fall out including my eyebrows. I brought in Pilar cysts which fell out of my head in the shower that both doctors refused to test and accused me of lying about. I was told that, "I must have lost my mind because my mother died"; in 5 minutes. I never received a summary of my visit & was told to leave as if I were less than human. NO humanity.

Excellent. I have seen Dr. Zirbel twice and find her to be very pleasant, knowledgeable and accommodating. She listens well and provides helpful suggestions for treatment option.

Dr. Zirbel is wonderful. Brilliant. My former dermatologist was unable to diagnose a rare infection that I had on my scalp. Told me to "see a psychologist". Dr. Zirbel identified the infection right away. My experience is that she will go far beyond the norm to ensure good patient care.

Very poor experience. Although she may be knowledgeable she lacks basic people skills. As a new patient, she was 15 mins late to the appointment. Talked for about 6 mins and told me she was going to put me on some medication. Didn't listen to me when I told her I had already tried it with a different provider. Didn't even look at my skin. Told me she was going to be right back and left the room. 15 mins later a nurse came in and told me my appointment was over. Never followed up with me.

Dr. Zirbel is terrific. She runs on time, and is very efficient, yet thorough and personable. I can completely understand why she's named as one of Milwaukee magazine's best dermatologists. Highly recommended!

This is the second time I've seen Dr Zirbel. Both times she has left the room before I even had a chance to say, Wait, can I ask you about... Twice!! I recently had a surgery with her that was about 3 inches long. She put in 6 stitches which was barely enough to keep the wound closed, let alone heal nicely. I strongly feel that she put in fewer stitches that required because she is always in a rush. After the stitches were put in, I was given no wound care directions, just a piece of paper.
