He insisted on a steroid treatment and did not listen to my input, even though this was a repeat visit. His treatment did not work and I was coming back for some more extensive help. I did not get it. Hebasically told me to use steroids or to move to another climate. I left very dissatisfied.

He was definitely not like many doctors who are after your money. He might not be overly warm and fuzzy, but he is one that seems to look out for your best interest rather than his pocket book.

I was disappointed with the appointment. I wanted to open a dialogue about my facial issues and opportunities to improve my skin and I felt rushed out the door with an rx in hand. I am looking for more from my dermatologist.

Not good, he barely spent time with my son and couldn't diagnose the issue. Gave a few samples to try and see which medication would work and report to his office to write a prescription. Horrible service!

Making the appointment was quick and simple and I credit the office staff for that. Wait time was almost nil. Because my reason for visiting/complaint was illustrated before my visit (ZocDoc patient info), I felt that the doctor had it inhis mind what he was going to say to me before I went in to the clinic. He spoke fast and, other than his quick written prescription, did not offer much when I had questions about said prescription or other concerns. I felt as though my visit had a prewritten conclusion before I ever went in.

After seeing several other specialists over several months, Dr. Kranson was the first to perform a biopsy and take cultures for my uncontrolled skin bumps, rash and boils. Rather than just prescribing a cream or antibiotic to see if it wouldhelp, he was interesting in obtaining a definitive diagnosis and treatment Dr. Kranson was extremely thorough in his exam, testing and scheduling a follow-up appointment.
