Dr. Perlmutter was great, she diagnosed my rash issue quite quickly and answered my questions, at no time did I feel like it was a rushed visit. I had a meeting to get back to at the office so the fasterthe better is a plus in my scorecard. Wait time was only a few minutes, it took me longer to fill out the online form as it was my first visit. Maxine her assistant I’m assuming and everyone at the front desk was super nice and welcoming. The office space was spacious, clean and chic. I would definitely go back again and recommend Dr. Perlmutter’s office to my friends/colleagues.

The office staff was great and willing to help! Dr. Perlmutter wasn't as genuine as I expected. She was abrupt and short and cut me off when I was asking questions and left the room without a goodbye. I was therefor a medical purpose but it seemed that the office focuses more on cosmetics, which could be the reason for her being curt.

Very thorough skin screening. I am a repeat patient of Dr Perlmutter, she is a great dermatologist. Wait time is fairly short usually. My only complaint is the rudeness of the front desk staff, it’s quite shocking how rude they areeven as soon as you walk in and say hi.

It was very convenient. I booked the appointment just a few hours ahead of time. Seeing her so early made a difference in treating my shingles diagnosis as soon as possible. Dr. Perlmutter also remembered to give me a coupon for the perscription, which I appreciated.

Dr. Perlmutter seemed to have little interest in my appointment. I had a specific area I wanted her to look at, which she did/discussed it with me for about 3 minutes. Since I was a new patient, I expected her toask me questions and offer a "check-up" of sorts. However, she seemed to just want to get me out as quickly as possible.

Wasn't too enthused. Overall the office has an upscale, boutique feel -- which some might like, but I tend to dislike at a dermatologist as it conveys more interest in cosmetic procedures. Dr. Perlmutter was perfectly nice and it was avery short visit, but not in-depth at all. She didn't ask about my history or explore any underlying causes with my eczema. It was a fine enough visit to get a prescription refilled, as I wanted, but I wouldn't go back for long-term care.

Office is very nice, staff and doctor also very nice. I did feel a little uncomfortable that the assistant comes into the room with the doctor during the exam. I typically select female doctors because I feel more comfortable with afemale presence for some of the more intimate medical issues!

I am new to the country and this was the first time seeing a physician. I explicitly asked reception whether this was covered by my insurance. She called my provider and ensured me it was. I asked repeatedly if I wouldbe charged anything and she said no. Now, close to 6 months later, I have received two bills, both for significant amounts! Its literally stealing! I am Appalled!

I didn't have to wait long to see the doctor for my skin check. She was thorough with my skin check and removed a mole for biopsy. I also had a question about some mysterious spots that appeared on my handand thighs but she didn't know what may have caused them or provide any possible causes. I'm not sure if her conclusions were typical or if she just hadn't seen many cases like mine. When describing certain skin conditions, she used the wordy medical terms, which was like a foreign language to me, so that was a bit odd. Would have been better if she spoke in layman terms.

Front desk staff was very pleasant and efficient. Waiting and exam room were run down, didn't seem sanitary. Assistant to doctor was not friendly or warm at all. Doctor was fine, but very brief (annual skin checkup). This seems like yetanother dermatology practice that courts patients who want cosmetic procedures, not medical care. I thought as a new patient, there'd be more effort from the practice to be welcoming. This was true only at the front desk. I'll keep looking for a dermatology office.

Honestly not that helpful. Also, the total office experience was also not that great. No one (from front desk to doctor's assistant) cared to make eye contact or even say hello. No instructions or explanation either of what will be happeningduring your visit or even to say "take a seat while you wait for the doctor"—they just take your forms and ignore you. Probably won't come back unless I have no other options.

So when telling the assistant that I'm here to discuss my acne, a rash and have a regular skin checkup, she stated that for the skin checkup I had to book a separate appointment. I decided to just do that sincethat was the main reason I came, however I find it extremely unprofessional to not allow a patient who has come to see a skin doctor to discuss various skin issues. In comparison, my husband went to a dermatologist for a regular skin check up, and she herself noticed a few issues and recommended what to do. In addition, they have a really cumbersome method of filling out the paperwork. You have to do it both on a computer and on paper, with the computer being extremely old fashioned and very buggy. The office is pretty, though.

Do not make an appointment with Dr. Perlmutter if you are looking for someone concerned with answering your questions. I booked an appointment for a "dermatology consultation" because I have a slew of questions about my skin. When I sat downthe assistant asked me if I would like a full body check, I said "sure, that is a good idea." After a 5-6 minute skin cancer check Dr. Perlmutter said nothing looks dangerous. I said great - I have a few questions, to which the doctor replied.... "Oh if you have any questions you have to book a separate appointment, this is just a skin cancer scan." I told her that I didn't come here for a skin cancer scan and that I had other questions. She laughed and said "that's not how dermatology works." If I could give this Doctor less then one star I would, this was a completely unacceptable experience. If the Doctor and/or office would like to reach out to me for further clarification, please do.

I went in for a mole/screening check and Dr. Perlmutter was wonderful to deal with. She made me feel comfortable and at ease. It turns out I had to have two moles removed, include one on my face :( Dr. Perlmutterperformed the removal procedure painlessly and flawlessly. I would highly recommend her!
