Dr. Arbesfeld is truly a great doctor! He explained to me my condition in easy to understand language, not in some medical lingo, like other doctors like to do. The staff was friendly and helpful. The wait was not bad atall. I left feeling very good and optimistic about my prognosis. Would definitely go back!

The doctor made me feel stupid. It seemed like he was in a rush to get me out the door. Would not go back to him.

With respect, this doctor seems as antiseptic as his instruments. The office is convenient, its staff is helpful and the doctor is knowledgeable but if you’re looking for a concerned care giver, perhaps look elsewhere.

Unfortunately many Dermatologists are unethical and for a simple case of psoriasis try and get you to take light treatments or they prescribe expensive medicine from companies who pay them off. DR Arbesteld prescribed a simple cream and toldme to come back only if I need to. Great doctor and a man of integrity.

Saw Dr Arbesfeld today for the first time. Greeted by cheerful staff. Nice clean reception area and exam room. Doctor did not keep me waiting. Examined by the doctor, not some nurse or PA. I was given a sample to trybefore having to pay for my script. I will definitely come back.

While the staff at the reception desk was helpful, polite, and had me smiling from the second I walked in, my experience was highly disappointing. Dr. Arbesfeld didn't shake my hand, introduce himself, or even confirm my name upon entering theroom. I informed him of the reason for my appointment, to which he replied, "Well I'm not really sure what to do because the back is a large area". I then showed him a list of medications that worked for me in the past and he immediately began to criticise them. The impression I got from him was that he either didn't know what the medications were or never thought to use them. How long has Dr. Arbesfeld been practicing? I don't know. But my last doctor had ALL sorts of ideas and solutions for the issues I face with my skin and never once made me feel like the problem was unsolvable. The examination itself was cold and off-putting. I have NEVER been made to feel so uncomfortable by a doctor. He jerked my face around with his hands rather than ask me to move it, he pulled the neck of my shirt down so hard that he stretched it, and didn't even wear gloves at any point. Needless to say, I was itching to get out of there. He gave me some samples of washes that I know aren't going to work because my problem doesn't stem from on top of the skin but underneath. He made it clear he didn't really have any idea about how to help me with my skin issue and didn't even bother exploring possible prescriptions. I will not be returning.

I went to see Dr. Arbesfeld for the first time recently to remove a mole from my nose. My appointment was on a Sunday, so there was nobody in the waiting room. Great for me! He explained the procedure, and witha few minutes after that my mole was removed. He's very professional and takes the time to explain in plain English. He will be my dermatologist from now on.
