I had a wonderful experience with my 2 and a half year old son at Dr. Hefter's office. He and his team did their best to ensure that my son felt as comfortable and safe as possible. My son has severe eczema and molluscum, and after following the regimen Dr. Hefter prescribed his condition improved markedly. I would happily recommend Dr. Hefter to anyone dealing with eczema at a pediatric or adult level. SF, Woodmere, NY

Hi there!!! Let me commence by saying that I live in New Jersey and Dr. Hefter’s practice is in New York. In order to arrive for a 10:30 AM appointment, I must leave my house at five in the morning, thereby avoiding the morning rush hour. During peak traffic, the drive would take four hours . I believe this is a telling indication of how valuable, in my humble ( yet experienced) opinion, Dr. Hefter is, in so many ways. I did visit a dermatologist in New Jersey but the diagnosis and guidelines given to me really left me confused, bewildered and with no clear direction or guidelines whatsoever. I felt worse leaving the office visit. Without a true answer or protocol on how to move forward with my dermatological dilemma, I knew I had to go to Dr. Hefter. I needed clarity, information, peace of mind and tools for improvement .I’m just thrilled that I’m able to do so,and that I know about such a fantastic doctor. My father was treated by Dr. Hefter for many, many years. He tended to the

I have been using Dr. Hefter for 30 years. For myself, my husband, my children and now my grandchildren. In this period of time we have used him for numerous things. Acne, growths, skin rashes, warts and now I had the pleasure of using him for fillers, Botox. and laser treatments With my children and grandchildren he always made them feel at ease and tried the less aggressive treatment first so it would be easier for the child. Once he has made the diagnosis he takes his time to think through

Dr. Hefter is a very caring and professional dermatologist. My mother, my sister, her family and my daughters were and are very grateful for the quality of care and positive outcomes we received under his care. I am a pharmacist and have dealt with many physicians over my 45 year career and Dr. Hefter is one of the finest practitioners I have known. The staff is extremely professional and appointments are always within 15 minutes of scheduled time. I highly recommend Dr. Hefter.

My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Hefter for a long time. Dr. Hefter is a very caring and knowledgeable dermatologist. He always gives a very thorough exam and answers all the questions and concerns that we have. He is very patient, and we never felt that he was rushing from one patient to another. My son, who does not live in NY, had a major problem that required surgery. We didn’t know how to proceed and called Dr, Hefter for advice. After putting in a long day in his office, he to

Dr. Hefter is an experienced and caring dermatologist. I was suffering from a rash of some sort for at least two months. The itching I was experiencing was uncontrollable all over my body. It was so severe that a got a maximum of an hour sleep every night. After no help from another dermatologist, it was suggested I go to Dr. Hefter. Within 5 minutes of an exam, Dr. Hefter diagnosed my problem and was elevated within a week that no one else was able to help me with. Thank you, Dr. Hefter.
