Dr. Bruce Kolton, MD

Dermatologist

Professional statement

I have been in dermatologic practice for 24 years in the Hoffman Estates area. My undergraduate, medical and residency programs were all completed at the University of Illinois. I am Board Certified by the American Board of Dermatology. My philosophy of practice is that I am a partner with my patients. I try to educate them on the facts of their condition and allow them to participate in their treatment options. It is also my philosophy that people should not have to wait for months to be seen when they have a problem. I would rather make an effort to fit people into my schedule based on need when it is appropriate.

Dr. Kolton is a very patient and caring doctor. I started seeing him years ago when I worked in Schaumburg. Now I drive farther than my other Doctor's to be seen by him.

Although the wait was over an hour, the staff and doctor were really great. Dr. Kolton was very to the point and made time to do my procedure the same day. The assisting nurse was awesome, she made me feel so comfortable. Would recommend to friends/family.

I was not happy about waiting in the "holding room" for an hour. BUT-once I was seen he gave me as much time as I needed. I needed a procedure and he graciously proceeded with it right then and there soI didn't have to come back again. It was worth the wait. He's kind, thorough, concerned and I'd recommend him to anyone. Everyone of his patience are a priority.

The biggest disappointment was the wait time. My appointment was for 9:30. I reached 15 minutes before the appointment. I was not seen until 11:00. Had to wait for almost 90 minutes in the exam room for a short consultation.

He was not superficial or pretentious, he has very legitimate knowledge and experience in what he's doing. You tell him the problem, he provides a solution. He is a trustable professional.

I saw Dr. Kolton several times and was not pleased with the outcome. I am seeking another doctor with the reoccurring problem I saw him for since I was not pleased. The thoroughness was not there and the appointments were too quick to actually find the problem.

I have a large list of questions for this man, and he answered every single one of them. Diagnosed me with rosacea (something I've dealt with all of my life, so I'm glad to get a clear answer), gave me twoprescriptions for treatment and a bunch of samples for one of them since the treatment is costly (as well as a coupon!). Came home to try the samples, and for the first time in my adult life, I am redness-free. THANK YOU!

I had to wait around 20 minutes to meet the doctor. The doctor provided several options for the treatment and mentioned their side effects. He finally recommended the affordable method to choose. I am quite satisfied with his recommendation.

The wait time is ridiculous, i waited over an hour. they gave me thin paper top to put on and office was cold and i was sitting there for an hour like that... then doctor came in, no knock on thedoor no nothing, he mumbled his name asked where the rush was... not very pleasant and then just left the room as fast as he came in... definitely not recommending this doctor.

I was a little apprehensive about reading the reviews about the wait time, but I just brought a book and was seen within 30 minutes of my arrival, so by my standards nothing outlandish. The ladies in the office were niceand accommodating when I called to ask for directions and then helped with some insurance questions I had. Dr. Kolton answered all of my questions and made some suggestions for better care, so really that's all I could've asked for. Overall, it was a good experience.
