Years ago I went to Dr Szylit. I went for the first time in several years and was reminded why I stopped going to see her. Unfortunately, her dismissive demeanor isn't the only negative issue I experienced. Dealing with a skin rash on my face she provided no other information other than a prescription. Every question I had seemed like an inconvenience for her. Several friends have stopped going to her for the same reason and now see her associate Dr. Schwartz. I wont be back.

Dr Szylit is an excellent doctor who is very knowledgeable and friendly . She answers all your questions and concerns and never rushes you . The office staff is friendly and they quickly call you with any test results . I highly recommend Dr Szylitz.

Dr.Szylit is a wonderful doctor, she is compassionate, and spends time listening to you and your concerns. The office staff is also very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend any doctor in her practice if you need a dermatologist!

I left another area Dermatologist in a larger practice because he was in such a rush to get out of the exam room onto the next patient. His full body check screening was pathetic-I could have done better! Dr. Szylit was fantastic, thorough and explained everything as she went through the exam. I asked for clarification a few times & she explained in lay terms that I understood. When I told her who I had the bad experience with she & her staff were not surprised. Office staff was also great.

Dr. Szylit is a very knowledgeable and caring doctor. Whenever I have had a concern about a rash, she has always been willing to take me seriously and explain what is wrong and what all of the possible treatments might be. I am ever thankful for Dr. Szylit for successfully recognizing my Lyme disease rash and sending me for an immediate blood test. Her knowledge of internal medicine also makes her a very resourceful physician when prescribing medications.

I had a spot on my leg that the doctor thought might be cancerous. She took her time and explained everything to me. I thought the office staff and nurses couldn't be nicer. I would highly recommend Dr. Szylit!

look elsewhere!! office staff is rude and so is the Physicians assistant! who you will more than likely see and not be told but certainly be billed for the doctor! dont even think about being 1 min late because they will literally walk out and close the door on you which is what happened to my daughter who had a 1230 appointment arrived early at 1220 but because she could not get the address of the ins co. to them before 1235 her appt. was abruptly canceled on her only day off & doors closed!
