What People Say About Dr. Gwen Abeles, MD

A friend of mine had recommended Dr. Abeles as someone who really helped her with her acne scars. I went to see Dr. Abeles for chronic acne which I have had a difficult time with for years. Dr. Abeles did a procedure and provided rx meds for me. It's been about 6 weeks since my visit and my skin looks better and I'm starting to feel better about how I look. I am looking forward to my next visit.

I have been going to Dr. Abeles for over 20 years. She always provides me with the best service and has essentially saved my life by removing countless atypical moles. Her staff is always very friendly as well. I have recommended many of my co-workers to her and they all use her now.

Dr. Abeles is knowledgeable and informative, but I did not feel seen or heard at any deeper level. Her answers were superficial and she slipped in and out quickly.

Attempted to sell her products which I found to be in poor taste given that she is supposedly a doctor and impartial. Similar to professors who sell their textbooks as part of the course they teach. I felt a little rushed and harried as well. I will find a better dermatologist.

unfortunately I have to give one star. I would give them No star at all. I will not tell you my horrible story. it is too long and unbelievable disturbing. I'm under antibiotics because of them. The front desk is absolutely incredible no compassion, careless, indifferent people. they don't treat you as a patient. They don't care at all about you.
