General environment feels more like a spa/salon than a medical office. Scheduling error resulted in 25.00 fee which office manager refused to waive and immediately submitted to collection agency - the most unapologetically greedy "profits over patients" business practice I have ever hear of or experienced.

Dr.Housel and his staff are actually saving my dads life. And I can not thank them enough. The staff have move so quickly to schelude and have removed very aggressive cancerous lesions from his head and neck. They can not do enough for us! Dad is 85 years old and we have been chasing these lesions for over a year. Multiple procedures with Dr. Housel. The entire staff has become like family to us. God has sent us an army of angels. From the first day we walked in!

A word of warning: If Dr. Housel diagnoses you with a melanoma, insist on seeing the pathology report yourself. While what you have may require removal, it may not be a melanoma. It will prevent you from having to declare on all future medical records that you had a melanoma. As an aside, his office staff is completely unprofessional and the wait times in his office are ridiculous. If you can't accommodate your patients in a timely manner, but back on your patient load.

I arrived at his surgery at 12.45 pm for a 1.15pm appointment. At 1.45pm I left with little likelihood of my appointment being fulfilled. His office staff are rude ,ignorant,unhelpful,unintelligent and totally inefficient about what they are doing . They also make comments about patients behind their glass screen that can easily be heard .. one woman in particular needs to be fired !!!! I would never go back there to receive third world quality treatment or service ,

Excellent surgeon. I am so impressed with Dr. Housel after having Mohs surgery. He is truly amazing. I had one surgery at another office for skin cancer in Syracuse and still have a terrible scar. No one can tell that I just had surgery on my face two months ago.

I had a 6m follow up appt, I never recv'd a confirm. call, After receiving a bill for a no show fee I called the office to ask if they still make confirm. calls they said it was an automated system I asked to speak to supervisor since I had never rcv'd a call, & stated I will provide phone records to prove so. When a "supervisor" got on she never gave her name her exact words were "We can waive this fee for you, but you will need to find another dermatologist." Just unbelievable/unprofessional.
