SHOULD HAVE WALKED OUT WHEN I WAS IGNORED WHEN I WALKED IN. IGNORED AT FRONT DESK AND TOLD TO TAKE A SEAT WHILE RECEPTIONIST CHT CHATTED. THEN HEARD SWEARING FROM THE BACK. FINALLY CALLED UP WHEN SHE WAS DONE TALKING. THEN WAITED ANOTHER 1/2 HOUR. WENT BACK TO SEE DOCTOR. WASN'T IMPRESSED. WANTED A SKIN CHECK AND WAS WEARING A GOWN. HE HARDLY LOOKED AT ME. THEN SPRAYED LIQUID ON AN AGE SPOT. THIS WAS TWO WEEKS AGO. SKIN STILL LOOKS HORRIBLE AND PAINFUL AND RED. WILL NEVER GO BACK.

I have been a patient of Dr. Herszenson for 34 years. I developed chronic acne, including facial cysts when I was 30 years old, I never had acne as a teen, Dr. H treated and solved my urgent acne condition and he helped me develop a successful prevention and maintenance routine that continues to work today. Dr. H has safely removed hundreds of moles from my body. I have consistently recommended friends and family to Dr. H,, unfortunately he is retiring at the end 2017, he will be missed. .

I chose Dr. Herszenson for a second opinion on some facial skin keratosis. All in all I found him very helpful. My only complaint would be the wait time. I was not able to see him until 45 minutes after my scheduled time.

I've been seeing Dr. Herszenson for over 15 yrs. I find him to be a good listener, able to diagnose my skin problems , and arrive at medical options in a straight forward way. I've had Basal Cell Cancer for over 30 years and Dr. H. helps me keep it in check. Years back I encouraged my Mother to see him about some skin problems.

October 3, 2017 Today was my last visit with Dr Herszenson as he is retiring the end of December I have been his patient for many years and enjoyed our relationship. Very knowledgeable, personable, efficient, and always conveyed a sincere interest in my concerns. He has earned retirement, and I wish him all the best.
