Patient Comments (4)
Lindenhurst, NY |
Having recently gone to Dr. Watsky for an exam, he took three biopsies from my body within five minutes. I never even took off my T shirt because he saw the three issues he felt necessary to remove. He then wanted to sell me two cremes from his extensive supply of cremes which I declined. I was told to return in two weeks. I called prior to my appointment and was advised that my biopsies all came back negative. I don't believe they were necessary and would not recommend him.

He is the worse doctor you can visit. He will do procedures that are not needed or indicated just to collect on insurance; what is worse, he has not open a book since he finished school. I came to see him, I am in medicine and I was shocked at how wrong medically he was. He will try to do biopsies on benign lesions just to collect on the insurance and likely you will end up with scars. Simply ask him for specific diagnosis besides "changing mole" and he will not able to give you any. BEWARE!

Dr Watsky was amazing! He was very attentive to my skin condition and helped resolve all of my issues. He was very attentive to my needs and was immensely caring and responsible in all of his services.
