What People Say About Dr. Joel Max, MD

Dr Max is the most impersonal Dr I have ever had the displeasure of coming across. He rushes into the room, says Dr Max, and goes right into, show me your spot, I can do this or this. When other concerns are brought up, he quickly brushes them off insinuating, this is not what this appt is for, make another appt to address those issues. He spent less than 3 minutes total in the office, and this was for a child. Awful doctor, I would never recommend.

Always made to wait for an hour past appointment time. Doctors are always in a rush to dismiss. Common diagnose is always fungal infection without bothering to consider other possibilities. Staff has no idea what was done to you in the exam room when you get checked out. There are no reports or notes made on time.

As a new patient, Dr very impersonal. Didn’t even introduce himself to me. Just came in with can of frozen nitrogen. Started using it on spot nesr my eyebrow without even telling me to close my eye. Won’t be back!

Dis-trustworthy. He ended up charging me for $300 for a Botox that was covered by my insurance company. He complained to me that he wasn't making any money off my visit.
