in Milwaukee, WI |
A very pleasant experience. I was very apprehensive about having a procedure that was necessary, but Dr. Herszenson and his assistant Patrice were very kind and considerate concerning my feelings. They did the biopsy and made me feel very comfortable. I was very pleased with my whole visit. I would recommend Dr. Herszenson to anyone that needs a good, knowledgeable, and thorough doctor. Thank you.

I had some rashes and red spots appear randomly all over my legs. In my initial appointment, I did a bunch of tests and this was my follow up appointment. I was diagnose with this weird skin condition that I obviously never heard of and it had a super long name. This appointment, I was hoping to get some answers to my questions. When I asked about why I could have gotten this or how long would I have it for, he couldn't even give me any direct answers. It was a lot of "it could be this or that"
in Milwaukee, WI |
He was pleasant and professional and listened to what I had to say about my medical issue. And he took care of my problem. I would definitely recommend Dr. Herszenson to others.

I have had only 2 visits with this doctor and on both occasions, found Dr. Herszenson to be friendly, caring, understanding and genuinely interested in my overall welfare. He listened to my concerns, answered my questions and am very comfortable with him, I would recommend him to friends and family....overall satisfaction - 5 star !!

Dr. Herzenson was very friendly, professional, knowledgeble. I was very satisfied with the appointment I recently had. He answered my questions I had and was focused on the reason for me being there. He gave me choices for treatment. I would easily have no problems seeing him in the future if any new problems arise.
in Butler, WI |
It's really to early to make an accurate review. I had one visit and first impressions were favorable. I have another appointment scheduled for next week Tuesday.
in Milwaukee, WI |
Because the Doctor's assistant completed the electronic medical record the Doctor was able to focus his attention on me instead of the computer screen. I view this as a real plus! The entire office staff was very friendly and I was seen in a very timely manner.

Great, he's a great dermatologist, with a great staff.

Very polite & professional staff. Treated as a person not as patient.

BEWARE BEWARE. Ask questions the ENTIRE time you are there about how much everything is going to cost. From simple conversation to looking at your skin. It will cost you. You will not be advised prior to receiving your bill. He picked a blackhead on my daughter and it cost me $275 for acne surgery. The billing dept said that you can be charged for anything during that appointment without any warning! BEWARE!
