I'm going to rate based on 5 criteria: 1) Timeliness - ZERO STARS - I arrived about twenty minutes prior to my appointment (12:00 PM) and did not see the doctor until 1:15 PM. Office staff brought me into the examinationroom approximately 1:00 PM. I think that Dr. Lasser either needs to book appointments with longer set times or take on a partner. (PLAN TO WAIT AT LEAST 1 HOUR TO SEE THE DOCTOR!) 2) Office Staff - ZERO STARS - The office staff were not friendly, had no idea how to access my ZocDoc forms (which I filled out in advance!) and were generally not very pleasant. They openly fought with multiple patients about billing, which I thought was in poor taste. If finances, insurance and medical conditions (such as cancer) are being discussed, there should be some privacy afforded to the patient. 3) Doctor's Bedside Manner - +1 - Dr. Lasser is a peach! Probably the best bedside manner of any dermatologist I have ever seen. Despite the long wait, I would still recommend him. He is both kind and down to earth. Not overly didactic, but also tells you what you need to know. 4) Doctor's Knowledge in Area of Practice - +1 - Dr. Lasser has been practicing for a LONG time and it shows. He knows his stuff and his thorough approach is obvious. I loved speaking with him and appreciated his thoughtfulness. 5) Billing - +1 - As of now, I had no issues. I do wish they had been able to access my insurance information via ZocDoc. (If you're reading this, PLEASE learn to access the ZocDoc documents, as it makes appointments run much more smoothly!)

I wnjoyed my visit with Dr. Lasser. I did complete the paperwork in ZocDoc but had to complete about 6 similar forms upon arriving. Inwaited about 30min to be seen, which i dont consider to be unreasonable. He was very nice,took care of my issue swiftly and with minimal discomfort. My only suggestion would be for him to inform patients a little more about what he is doind during a procedure. I feel comforted knowing what the doctor is doing and why, and he just pretty much did it without much discussion. No big deal- would recommend.

I have been treated by Dr. Lasser for over 20 years and consider him an outstanding dermatologist. Based on the outcome of his treatment of my skin problems over these years, I can definitely state that in my case, his diagnosisand treatment have always been correct. I know you do not want this kind of evaluation from non-medical professionals, but since I have evidence to support my claim, I decided to add this sentence into the review. The waiting time has always been long, but knowing that, I come with a book, sit and read. The extended waiting time seems to be mostly due to the fact that Dr. Lasser actually pays detailed attention to his patients and often performs treatment in his office at the time of the visit. It cannot be expected that the length of the interaction between Dr. Lasser & any given patient can be defined more accurately than it is now.

I had two separate appointment with Dr. Lasser, one was at the old location, and the other at the new location. Both times the wait time was extremely long. At least or close to an hour before I was taken intothe examination room. The first time the wait was so excessive but when the doctor finally showed up, I was satisfied with his service, however the wait was to long. On the second visit I left after waiting close to an hour.

I waited for over an hour past my scheduled appointment time for 5 minutes of quick, brash treatment from Dr. Lasser. I was highly disappointed considering how highly he was rated. It was very clear to him he wanted to getin and get out. I felt so rushed and did not have any opportunities to ask him any questions or voice any concerns about the treatment.
