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 to ask me questions and offer a "check-up" of sorts. However, she seemed to just want to get me out as quickly as possible.

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 a female presence for some of the more intimate medical issues!

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 a very 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.

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 hand and 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.

I had a skin screening which was quick but thorough and a mole removed to be tested that same day. Dr. Perlmutter is informative and friendly. The office is very pretty and it was an easy and worthwhile appointment.

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 yet another 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.

I went to a dermatologist because I wanted to have a general discussion about taking better care of my skin, and she was not receptive to that. I felt like that appointment was a complete waste of my time.

Cheery doctor, accommodating and answered all my random-ass questions ("What is the temp of the frozen nitrogen you're spraying me with?"). Felt like I was in good hands the whole time.

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 happening during 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.

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 would be 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!

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 since that 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 down the 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.
