Fast, listened ,and professional .
Dr David Arbesfel is an excellent dermatologist , I would definitely recommend him ,very caring an honest My results were very satisfying.. Thank you Dr David job well done ...
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 at all. 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.
Excellent doctor highly recommended
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.
Very intelligent and helpful. The best of all the dermatologists! Don't waste your time going to others!
Everything went well, i highly recommend! Thank you.
Visit was very smooth and out in no time, love Sunday hours.
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 told me to come back only if I need to. Great doctor and a man of integrity.
Best doctor ever...
He was genuine, straight forward and honest.
Wonderful receptionists and very accommodating doctor.
Amazing! I felt very comfortable asking both the front desk and my doctor questions. They talked me through everything and made sure I understood all procedures. Did I mention the lady in the front desk was super nice? Amazing service!
I was right on time for my appointment and didn't have to wait at all. The receptionist is very pleasant and the doctor was helpful and took his time to speak with me.
Great doctor. Very thorough. Listens to and addresses all concerns.
He is so professional, calm, knowledgeable. He makes you comfortable and explains everything plus you never feel rushed. All staff members are so friendly too!
Went very well
Dr. Arbesfeld is an excellent dermatologist. He has great bedside manner, tremendously competent, as well as proactive. I live in Miami, FL, and I traveled to NY to receive his services. I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to receive his services. Thank you again Dr.Arbesfeld, I appreciate all that you do. Sincerely, Anthony L.
Love the doctor !!!! Sooo friendly and sweet .....he was very understanding ....
I didn't wait long once I got into the doctors office. Dr. Arbesfeld was very straight forward and acted quickly and made sure all my concerns were addressed. Very honest and gave me a lot of good information. Thank you!
My experience was great the receptionsit is a sweetheart one of the most kind and proffessional receptionist i have come across in a long time. The doctor was great, friendly to the point and took the time to answer all my questions. I will be going back :)
This was my first visit to this office on a referral from a friend who said this doctor was an excellent physician . The office was very clean and the staff helped me right away and was extremely friendly. The care I received from Dr. Arbesfeld was outstanding and he made me feel right at home. I will be sure to be returning to this office and I would recommend him to all of my family and friends !
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 try before having to pay for my script. I will definitely come back.
Excellent doctor and staff. Seems very knowledgeable. Explained to me why my previous medications were not working. Sent scripts to a specialty pharmacy to save me some money. I highly recommend Dr Arbesfeld.
Cheerful doctor. Actually was smiling during the visit, and made jokes. Put me at ease right away. Seems to know his stuff . 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 the room. 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.
Answered all questions and concerns, was straight forward and to the point. Very helpful and professional
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 with a 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.
good guy ,good staff , makes you get all your options
