What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Kaminsky, MD
Reply
(Copied from my Google review) I had the misfortune of being referred to Dr. Kaminsky by my primary care physician,and went to see him for a consultation. After filling out the usual paperwork and a brief wait, I was sent into an examination room to be examined by him. A few minutes later, he entered, had me take off my shirt, looked me over, said that everything was fine, and started to leave. Total time was approximately 90 seconds. I stopped him by saying that I had some questions and asked about a large mole that was the reason for my referral. He reiterated that it looked fine and handed me a pamphlet that described the warning signs of melanoma, then immediately left. I never got a chance to ask about a discoloration of my skin. Dr. Kaminsky has the bedside manner of a wolf, and you are a piece of meat to him. If you want a doctor who will treat you like a number, rush through your appointment, and ignore any questions you may have, he is your guy!
