Dr Aber maybe spent a total of three minutes with me, my appointment with her felt extremely rushed. I had an allergic reaction to the medication that Dr. Aber prescribed to me for mild acne. I called her office five times(not exaggerating, actually five times) and every time, I spoke to the office manager who said that Dr. Aber would get back to me but I never got any kind of follow up. I had to go to another doctor for a new examination and a different prescription. I absolutely would not recommend her to anyone!

The doctor was really excellent. She was super nice and answered my questions, very knowledgeable and had excellent bedside manners. However, her staff not so much. When I arrived at the office they had me fill out all the paperworkall over again even though I confirmed with Zoc doc that all the paperwork was correctly sent. I spent time filling out all of my biographical information and insurance Information through the app and then sent it over. The office pretended like they didn't have any of that information. Additionally, they canceled and rescheduled my appointment without an explanation.

She was okay, nice actually, although She kept trying to sell my Wife and i things we didnt want or need, but her Staff and overall operation is very unprofessional. It took me 2 days to get the prescription forwarded electronicallyto wallgreens! Whats the point in the electronic script if its not going to be fast and done? She might as weal have hand written it out for me, at least i couple have started to treat this nasty rash in a timely manner!! Than when i called (well, kept calling) her office, the woman there was rude and unprofessional. She kept telling me She was understaffed that day, yesterday they seemed lazy, sluggish, and sleepy when i was at the office. Typical, unprofessional, Miami service i guess.

I love the office and the doctors, but every time I go I have to set a 3 hour block of time, for a simple 40 minute procedure (including prep and cleanup time). The waiting is horrible.

Everyone in the office was pleasant. The waiting room and examination room were attractive and clean. Dr. Aber was affable and thorough. I waited close to an hour to be seen; had I been that late I'm sure it would not have been acceptable. Still, I would recommend this Dr.

The wait time was due to insurance matters and not the office. Dr. Aber also apologized for the wait as soon as she came in. She was very professional and I highly recommend her to others.

Very kind, personable, patient and knowledgeable. She actually took time to listen, understand and address all of my dermatology concerns and questions. In addition, she actually reviewed my family history to understand how that historycould be related to my concern. I've been in Miami 6years now and haven't found a doctor that would take the valuable time she did (even though she had another appt' waiting) to make me comfortable with her diagnosis and thoughts regarding my condition. It was an absolute positive visit and I will definitely go back. In addition, I will not hesitate to refer others to see her.
