First time. Have been to too many Dermotologist who just want to cut and have you back for the same. Dr Marc looked at all my medicine and explained what to keep and use and what to discard. Very professional Examined me and gave me a clear explanation of what I needed. Excellent “bedside “ manners and a sense of humor.

First Doctor Abbate appologized for being late,. He then checked my body including my cheek, which was the reason for my visit. When I told him the spot on my thigh was psoriasis and the reason I assumed that was because I have had it in other areas for over fofty years he asked only how long it had been there. I said a few weeks. He proceeded to cut the entire dime size piece of skin off. His assiistant then used a tool to stop the bleeding.Test result Benign.Surgery unnecessary Never go back

I've gone to Dr. Abate for years. Very satisfied with Dr. Abate's skills, and his cheery manner. The staff is friendly and professional. The office and treatment areas are extremely clean. BOOKING CAN BE TIME CONSUMING as there are a number of doctors in this practice and people who make appointments have a lot of juggling of schedules to do. The magazine selection is pathetic, BRING A BOOK. Try to snag an early appointment so there is less chance they run late which is their only flaw.

I love Dr. Abbate. He's very thorough. It's very difficult to get an appointment with him. PA's are great! Drawback of the Riverdale office is the non caring attitude at the front desk upon arrival and it has been my experience the last 2 visits. I walked in and signed the sheet. The girl behind the glass said, "Name?, Insurance?, (looked at her cellphone) $40 copay". Never looked at me and her midriff was exposed. Top was too small. Good I wasn't there for a serious problem.

I believe he is very capable and pleasant. He did 3 biopsies on me. Never called with the results. Image my surprise when the surgeon called! One was Cancer. Poor??

Waiting 20 - 30 minutes after my appointment start time to see Dr. Abbate is the norm. You'll see most patients come in after you and see a doctor before you. Recently I paid my copay, waited over 40 minutes, didn't see Dr. Abbate, had to leave for a business meeting, informed the office staff, and drove back for my meeting. Dr. Abbate and this physician group care much more about making money and less about respecting your time...keep looking for a better doctor.

Over a 70 minute wait time. Rude office staff. Unprofessional. Inconsistent care. When asked what exactly is in the cyst he is removing, his reply was: Stuff!. This guy is totally full of himself - and appears is more interested in volume than true patient care. Spare yourself the narcissism practiced by this doctor - and find someone who REALLY cares about YOU!
