My children have seen Dr. Kristal several times. He is the best dermatologist I have seen. He explains all, listens, answers questions, takes time with the children and you never feel rushed. He is friendly and looks at you when he speaks. I have seen other dermatologists, personally, that make you feel rushed and only want to answer some of your questions. I have never had that experience with Dr. Kristal. I highly recommend him.
