What People Say About Dr. Steven Proper, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Proper is an awesome doctor, HOWEVER, the office staff is very rude, lacks intelligence and can't seem to get it together. My husband underwent care with this office for more than a year and signed authorization for them to speak with me regarding any treatments, tests results, etc. and was done with no problem. Apparently, now this year, they have "misplaced" the authorization and even after having my husband sign another release, they still won't speak with me. When I tried to resolve it, that was an even bigger joke. Left 2 messages for "Jennifer", the "office manager" to return my call and of course, she didn't. Tried e-mailing her and received a "block" notification. I then tried to call her again and my call was screened and then put through to voicemail. I am officially DONE and I am currently in the process of transferring my husband's care elsewhere.

The way he runs his office is chaotic... Plan to be there all day... Had a few small procedures he was okay but very rough... Blew smoke up my butt for 3 months telling me how good and wonderful and experience he was...the day of my big procedure... He changed his mind it was too much for him... I definitely do not recommend him ! there are much much better out there

This office messed up my medication paperwork, refused to correct the situation, and now I am back to square one. I never received my medications, left messages, three times, and never got the courtesy of a return call. Anyone dealing with this practice does so at their own risk. I was treated abhorrently and my condition is worse than ever.

Dr. Proper has been my dermatologist for more than 20 years. He has cared for me and my entire family. He is an exceptional diagnostician, who is able to identify skin and other health issues better than other dermatologists because he is also an internist. His knowledge and skill are obvious in everything he does, and his personal attentiveness and follow through are uncommon in today's health care system. He is, in al respects, a 'doctor's doctor' for all of us.
