Spent maximum of 2 minutes with me. Incomplete physical assessment. Poor eye contact. Couldn't be bothered. Find a competent dermatologist. He is not one.

Dr. Amster is by far the worst medical providers I have come across. He takes absolutely NO TIME to address your questions or concerns. Is very dismissive of what the course of action would be. He was supposed to do a Botox procedure for me (not cosmetic), he did not do half the things other dermatologists did in the past. I moved town and that;s how I met this provider. There is no dearth of good medical providers who are genuinely concerned about the well being, he is not that guy. STAY AWAY

Very negative experience. Went in for moderate acne. Spent at most 90 seconds with me (I'm being generous). Didn't take the time to ask my history or discuss questions/concerns. Also called my acne wild, which I found insensitive. I work in healthcare and understand the importance of efficiency. However, there is a difference between efficiency and rudeness, and Dr. Amster was definitely the latter. I left with no confidence that his recommendations were right for me. Will be going elsewhere.

Saw me for a few seconds. That's it. Feel he could have paid more attention.
