I unfortunately, have dealt with 11 different skin cancers. Dr. Schlesinger has always been very informative it which procedure for removal would be best for each location. The scars that I have are so minimal, most people can not even notice them. My entire family comes to Dr. Schlesinger for all...more

Ashley was fantastic. I can’t wait to see her again for another facial treatment. It was truly the best I have ever experienced. The office is conveniently located. Staff was courteous.

He removed a small brown round mole on my face saying it was cancerous. I found out that a mole like that is not cancerous. On top of that he did plastic surgery which left that side of my cheek uneven. In my opinion he is a very dishonest doctor and no one should go to him.
