Steve has been treating my chronic psoriasis problem for years and has been providing outstanding results. There was many years and many doctors I went through before finding Dr. Steven Flax and finally getting true results. He is by far, the best Dermatologist I've ever encountered.

My daughter found him rude and frankly, a jerk. When I tried to get her in with another dr they told me i'd need HIS permission to go someone else! Aren't they at the same practice?! My girl should be seen by anyone she may chose!
