Never going back. Went for skin check & told the nurse I had some areas of concern . She was leaving the room & I asked if there was a gown or sheet so I could undress for the exam. She told me I can just drop my pants when the Dr came in. Thought that was strange so I began to remove my clothing down to my boxers, so the Dr. could actually look at my skin, & he immediately walks in. He was super fast & barely glanced at me. I pointed out the spots I was concerned about, & he was very dismissive. Total waste of time & money. Time to find another Dr.

Best ever Dermatologist. Have been treated by 5or 6 different Dermatologist in North Carolina for Neurodermatitis without success. The itching constanly was really affecting not only my skin but my mental state. Finally decided to give it one more try here in Florida and he gave me a RX for a creme that absolutely got rid of the itch like never before and skin cleared up. This was all over my head and body, front and back. He is my Hero.

As a single mother I am limited to using the Medicaid system for my kids healthcare. Dr. Heskell is one of very few dermatologists who accept Medicaid so my expectations were not very high. To my surprise I have found him to be the ultimate professional having gotten my sons acne under control in record time. He has a wonderful staff who are professional and caring. The office is clean and orderly.I am pleased with the care and overall environment of Dr. Heskell‘s practice. One final thing that can’t go without mention is The Dude. The Dude abides in Dr. Haskell‘s private office and patients are invited to say hello to him. He is a gentle giant who provides a wonderful icebreaker for the nervous, young or new patients. It is always the highlight of our visit to be invited to say hello. There is nothing like pet therapy to assist in the emotional and spiritual well-being of the patients. This mother is very grateful that Dr. Heskell takes medicaid!!!

Dr. Heskel has been my Dermatologist for more than 5 years now. He is my find it and fix it guy. He is efficient, personable and professional which gives me confidence that his actions are correct and in my best interest. His staff is also top notch. On each and every phone call and appointment that I have had with them they are efficient, courteous and helpful. It is a first class office headed by a first class Dermatologist that I highly recommend to anyone looking for quality care.

I have had the pleasure of being taken care of by Dr. Heskel and his outstanding staff once or twice a year for 22 years. I am an "old" blue-eyed redhead with extremely sensitive skin. Dr. Heskel and his folks have expertly managed my medical care and related records/billing matters. You couldn't be in better hands with any other dermatologist practice. Sharon

Dr. Heskel and his wonderful staff have been taking care of me since 1997. I require quarterly monitoring because I am a retired golf professional, I am in the Florida sun everyday, and I have had melanoma/other skin cancer more than a few times. I cannot play golf in the dark so Doc keeps my skin in the best working order possible. And I really enjoy visiting the office when the Dude abides! Thanks, Ernie

Dr. Heskel has been my doctor for several years and has done a wonderful job with both my surgical and blue light experiences. He is a very caring and a more than competent physician. His patient's health is his primary concern along with giving options and explanations of treatments . Linda Greer

One of the best doctors in Vero Beach. Always has time to discuss care plans, options and more importantly doesn't make you wait 6 months to get an appointment. I recommend him to all my friends and family. His office is clean and his staff is friendly and attentive. I wish more doctors followed his philosophy.

Dr. Heskel and his staff are great, very professional and caring. Since I had many pre-cancer spots on my face, he recommended photodynamic therapy where a solution is applied to your face and you sit under a light for about 15”. It was very effective and less damaging than cryosurgery. He treated my psoriasis flare-up with UVB light box for about 6 weeks, 3 days a week. Luckily it worked, and I didn’t have to go on Humira. I highly recommend Dr. Heskel.

Dr. Heskel diagnosed my autoimmune skin disease ( Bullous Pemphigoid )on the very 1st visit with him. I had seen my primary and cardio Drs. and they both were bewildered as to the cause. Dr. Heskel is very professional and relaxing to be around , with a sense of humor to make you smile. Very comforting and puts you at ease , esp. in this situation of the disease being rare ( one out of 20,000 in the US )
