I am 63 years old and have lived in many different cities in the US.I have been using botox and dysport since i was about 50.He is the kindest and most thorough dermatologist i have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.He is extremely patient and very precise.He takes his time, marks the places with green dots( has you numbed first with a liquid so you feel nothing)then gently with a very small needle injects over the green dots.What a nice experience compared to most!!!!!

Dr. Stiefler's office staff was courteous, professional and I was was seen on time. Dr. Stiefler was thorough in his review of the condition that I came in for, and knowledgeable and candid about my prospects for a cure. He described a new cutting-edge treatment that his office offers, but suggested that I wait until he evaluates the longer-term results - very honest. He did not leave until he was sure that all my questions had been answered. Very personable and professional doctor.

25 minutes late seeing me, even though I didn't see anyone leaving. I had an appointment for a routine skin cancer check, but he barely looked at me. Asked me what I wanted him to look at, I said my whole body. He really did not want to do that but took a very quick look and said I seemed OK to him. He seemed much more interested in getting me to sign up for regular purchases of skin care products. I think this doctor is more interested in cosmetic surgery than in helping people to stay healthy.

it was the most unprofessional doctors visit i've had in my life. He's completely uniformed and unwillingly to do what a dermatologist...or any doctor is suppose to do. Care for the patient. i left with no result, no information and total disgust. And,...he had the gall to bill my insurance company for an office visit. I'm sending him a bill for my time in return
