Dr. Bruce was extremely nice and personable. He saw me right away. Diagnosed me pretty quick but to rule out other possibilities he took a biopsy which didnt hurt at all. He prescribed medication which I have yet to pick up. Hoping it works.

Dr Bruce Heller and his clinical assistant are excellent professionals, but I don't think Dr Heller belongs to that medical group, he was doing much better by himself, he knew how to run a Dr's office. This new place was worst than a community rural clinic or supermarket, they were people that had the same opinion about the dermatologist machine. The office was clean, the space is not enough, neither the staff personal. The office was really uncomfortable packed, I was waiting for more than twenty minutes in a line of seven people before I was attended by a desoriented receptionist that was not sure about what she was doing. We were at least 28 people waiting to be attended (enough chairs to be seated) for any of the 7 doctors...The group Schewiger is a good financial idea for the doctors that participate in the group but they need a biggest office and with better trained staff...I waited for more than 1.10 hrs to be attended...I had to tell the receptionist the waiting time...anyway, I feel Dr. Bruce and his own staff, deserve better and Me too!!!

Amazing! I've had rosacea for 2 years now and could never find a good treatment. First time I see Dr Heller he gave me just the right medication - I haven't seen my skin look this good in a while! Wait time was not too much of an issues - take an early appointment and you'll be sure to be seen right away!

Dr. Heller is very professional, knowledgeable, and very pleasant to communicate with. The appointments are usually available for daytime and evenings - very convenient. The office is busy, indicating that patients like Dr Heller a lot; well, that may cause you a little extra waiting. Highly recommend.

Dr. Heller is thorough--he gave the intense light when checking my face for a second time. He found my melanoma in situ in the 90s, so he takes care to find any others. His colleague, Gracie, took photos of my spots and marked a few. I haven't had any other melanomas, but I have had precancerous lesions removed. I also appreciated his recommendation of Dr. Zuckerman to remove the cyst on my scalp.

He was knowledgeable and lovely to deal with but the wait was 90 minutes and lead to an argument with another patient trying to cut ahead of me which the staff agreed to until I witnessed it and spoke up. Not the kind of stress one needs before a doctor visit no matter how professional the physician is.

Very professional, extremely knowledgeable and very helpful, and a charming, old-school physician. He told me he had founded the original practice. His young assistant (not sure if she was an NP or a PA) was also quite good. I showed him cell-phone photographs of past breakouts (since of course, thanks to "Murphy's 'Going to the Doctor' Law," I had no symptoms by the time of my visit), and he instantly recognized the issue and then determined the next steps. He also gave me great pointers, as well as a sample of a medication he thought might help.

I was very happy with the quality of care received on this visit; the thoroughness of his staff member who gathered details of my current medical condition as well as Dr Heller's approach to collect further information from me. I also appreciate the options that he provided for me to follow up with possible treatment.

The problem besides the long wait time is the fact that this doctor always requires a follow up no matter what. Never one and done. So yes, he's bilking the insurance and my co-pay which hurts. I only go to him in an emergency because he has super early and late hours and I always regret my visit. This will be my last.
