Dr. Wolinsky was great. She was very nice, answered all of my questions about various different concerns, and came up with a plan for treatment as well as a backup plan and plans for a follow up visit. She and her staff were very kind and professional. I’ll be using Dr. Wolinsky as my dermatologist from now on.

Dr. Wolinsky is one of the nicest doctors I have ever met. She is also very honest, she could have sold be lots of her lotions & potions & told me to come back every week, but instead told me I had great skin & keep using sun block cream.

The nurse that helped first was very nice and Dr. Wolinsky was very quick, efficient and explained everything thoroughly. She suggested a few different products and told me I had a few price options, but could call her back if it ended up being to much (which was really nice because I was concerned about price). Definitely would recommend!

She was very thorough and answered all my questions. Over the last few years the skin in my T-zone area became very dry and flaky at times. She said it was just very dry skin. I use coconut oil on my face and also cocoa butter as well as almond oil. She was unsure of what could help. She prescribed a moisturizer but was unsure if it would help. I liked her honesty. However, the prescription was very expensive and not covered by my insurance so I did not get it. Still searching for something to bring my skin back to normal. I've always had really soft, smooth skin on my face and neck.

Clean office, very personable and short wait (though I was there at 8:30, so unclear what happens later in the day). She was understanding, thorough and kind. Even set me up with a local pharmacy that's good at getting insurance to cover tricky meds.

Claire Wolinksy is amazing but unfortunately, it took over a week to get my prescription authorized. I called both my insurance and the pharmacy and they confirmed that the doctor office was responsible for contacting the insurance company. It is not very clear to me what happened but when I followed up with the doctor office, the I was told multiple times that the nurse would call me back which never happened. I had to keep calling the office and get samples of the medication while I awaited my Rx to go through. With my insurance, I have NEVER had a to wait this long to get a prescription filled by a doctor office so I precaution this for anyone considering coming here. Claire is wonderful, but there is no guarantee with the experience you will have with the front desk or nurses on staff.
