What People Say About Dr. Helen Flamenbaum, MD

Had itchy rash on arms & foot. Doctor didn't look at foot maybe because she doesn't like touching feet. Offered me a strong steroid pill & mentioned side effects would be migraines, high BP and cholesterol. I asked for an alternative because of side effects & she gave me a different steroid ointment. I did not find out that it was $1000 until I got to duane reade. Used it anyway and it was not effective so I asked for the stronger steroid pill which was only $7. Shocked dat she ddnt say price b4

Dr Flamenbaum is still a pleasant, qualified md, but was safer to use before she joined Schweiger. in 2016 their main billing office in NYC overcharged my ins. co. thousands of dollars , and myself hundreds, and won't refund either one of us after numerous months. I had to switch to another dermatologist for non-medical reasons. I never had any billing issues when she was not affiliated with Schweiger, so I am fairly certain Schweiger is the problem.

I found Dr. Flamenbaum patient, thorough, and informative. Waiting time upon arrival was less than five minutes. She took as much time as was necessary for the exam and did not rush out to see the next patient. I give her the highest rating possible.
