Best dermatologist in the country!

Dr golomb is a great doctor! I have gone around many other dermatologist thinking that I would receive the same care Dr Golomb provides but closer to my home and after going to many I decided to go back to see him even if I spend an hour of driving!! The care and the price I pay for his service is worth it!!

GOD BLESS THIS OLDER DOCTOR!!!!
in Falls Church VA |
I went to Dr. Golomb to have some small age spots removed from arms and legs. He froze 24 spots in one session. He was careless with his targeting of the freezing tool and made holes in my legs and arms that took months to heal and left dark scars far worse than the age spots. The blistering was shocking - some the size of golf balls. I have a very high tolerance for pain and the pain in my legs was excruciating for days. When I told him he was dismissive. Both his office and person were filthy.

He is way too old to still be practicing and I felt uncomfortable with him. I had to wait in the office 2 hours over my scheduled appointment and once I saw him he old took 5 minutes and gave me a bunch of stuff to ready and prescribed me to medication that isn't working. Also, Falls Church Medical Center said I was fully covered for the visit and still sent me a bill only reducing a small amount of money off. I will never go back here and tell everyone to stay away from this facility and doctor
