I love Dr Goffin on a personal level but he is a little too quick to start chopping and zapping and then I'm left with a big bill every time. He's so swift that it's really hard to digest everything he's saying before he's zipped out of the room and you're sitting there in the paper gown thinking "but wait--what all did he just say?!" Most --of the office staff is very nice and professional especially the nurses.

This man saved my life and the lives of my family. Wonderful physician!

Been seeing Dr. Goffin for a few years. Went in for my checkup with a obvious tan from just returning from vacation. He belittled me in front of the assistant, embarrassed me while I sat in my bra and underwear and then refused to examine me. He then left the room and asked that I not come back. Worst experience I ever had at a Doctor appointment.

This is the only dermatology practice in southern Berkshire County, which leads this group to have limits in terms of what it can provide and to take liberties around patient care. The office does not work well with patient schedules (I rescheduled a session in February, and was told I couldn't get another appointment until late June). The doctor seems to insist on a medication in advance-- the pharmacy noted that his patients all seem to get the same meds. His bedside manner is condescending.

I originally went to Dr Goffin for a growth on my face. He"froze" it and several others. Follow up visit checked what he had removed and removed several more. Third time I went for scalp issues and again he was ready to remove more. When I refused he wanted to know why. I told him I thought it was unnecessary. A routine skin check makes sense but not every visit. He became agitated and said he couldn't be my dr and left the room and never completed the exam. Apparently zapping is mandatory .

Dr. Goffin is a pleasant friendly doctors. He tends to find something to remove each time you visit him, even though he has seen it in a previous visit a year before without much change. I guess that is the way he makes his money.

went for a full skin scan, was only asked to remove my shirt, the dr looked at my hands, neck, tops of shoulders, outside top of arms, have copy of the scan, dr checked off every part of body scalp to toes as examined. misdiagnosed w/incurable skin disease, treatments dangerous and made the condition i did have much worse. dr does not answer direct questions staff doesnt return calls.

He saved my life! I was there for acne follow up and he found a melanoma on my leg and removed it before it spread into lymph. Very thankful! I remove anything that is suspicious. Vanity over cancer is an easy choice for me.
