What People Say About Dr. Jonathan Held, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Displeased with his treatment towards my situation. Unless you have melanoma or other cancerous ailments do not bother visiting his practice. Currently dealing with Chronic Lyme disease because his lack of interest to dig deeper many years ago. I had shown dermatological warning signs of the disease, otherwise I would not have gone to seek his treatment. Other appointments involved me being spoken to as if I was a child and needed discipline ...realized later on he was aggravated because I questioned his thought process and care. I wanted to see other specialists about the issue and that was also a problem. Ego issue of his needs to be addressed. I do not expect lovey dovey care but I do expect respect as a educated individual. He has intelligence in many areas however his personality gets in the way of that.

Dr. Held seems personable and seems to know his business. But I have never felt so rushed, so not listened to, so bulldozed at a Drs office. Was he missing his lunch or on speed that he reduced my appointment to a few fast talking arrogant minutes( on his part) and did a procedure on me without explaining it first? Won't go back.

Beware !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Save your money and time !!!!!!! I don't think I will ever visit this doctor again. I was charged 80$ for 0 service. I am not sure how can someone expect their customers/clients to pay 80$ for missing an appointment. I could not digest the thought that money is more important for a doctor. I would not have reacted or cared to write a review if it was somer other field/domain but the very thought doctors care for money not for health hurt me more.

Been a patient of Held since early 90's. My wife and son's also saw him. Decent Dr, who seems to know his stuff, but he's 100% about the money. Once my wife missed an appt for my son and the office hammered us with a $75 charge despite it being the first time. Although disappointed, we didn't dispute, and paid it. Most recently, I had an appt in Jan and a week prior his billing office called to say I had a deductible and would have to pay $100 prior to seeing him. I was pissed. He sucks.

I've had nothing but positive experiences with Dr. Held and his staff - he does a nice job adjusting to the patient and will take the extra time to explain things if needed but not waste your time if not. He also recognizes that skin conditions can affect your life and makes that part of the conversation rather than just focusing everything on treatment.

Beware! My daughter was home sick with the stomach bug and I missed the my appointment, I was hit with an $80.00 bill.. I am completely disgusted. Apparently my responsibility was to Dr.Held and not the caring of my child.
