Danbury |
my one visit I found him to be rude, insulting and not helpful at all. After a long wait he stormed in with an attitude, I now think my information was mixed up and he thought I was someone else. Awhile after this bizarre appointment I received an angry phone call from this most rude staff saying I missed an appointment I never made.

He completely cleared my horrible plaques on my legs. I have one tiny, tiny spot on my left elbow.

This doctor is rude, unprofessional and arrogant. We saw him three times over the course of two months each time the wait time was two hours and he saw us for five minutes. He does not let you ask questions nor does he explain the diagnosis. We decided to see another dermatologist so I contacted his office to request our records and was told that we would have to pay 50 cents per page. I have never had a doctor not just give you the original file. Will not see him again!!!!!!!

Wait time with an apointment is always about an hour sometimes. The doctor doesn't give information on what wrong he just tell you this is what you have and you need this medicine here's a prescription.

Haven't seen him in 20+ years and when I need a dermatologist I could not get someone in my local area I found he was still working and I was given an appointment without a problem. He was quick and accurate with my diagnosis and also very compassionate on some of my other health issues. I will take a Dr. that is straight forward and honest any day. His bill was also very reasonable!
Waited for over an hour...this has happened multiple times. Very unprofessional. Also, they did not have accurate paperwork. He is knowledgeable but does not let his patients speak or explain their conditions.
