Had a couple of moles surgically removed, and the procedure left some pretty ugly scarring. The sutures and wound closure was not done in a good manner, and I'm left with some pretty bad scars. Will not go back.

Dr. Ciocon was very friendly and professional! He spent ample time with me during my visit, and was even willing to look up other doctor referrals for me after my appointment. The waiting room and examination room was clean and comfortable,and the wait time was minimal. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ciocon!

Dr. Ciocon and his staff were very friendly, but I felt as though he didn't take my concerns about my health problem very seriously. He seemed very rushed and tried to leave the appointment before I had a chance to askall of my questions. Pleasant enough experience but not the right doctor for me.

My first visit to see Dr. Ciocon. Staff were very professional, polite, and courteous. I waited only 10 minutes before being seen. Dr. Ciocon is so sweet! He looked at the problematic area and reviewed pictures that I took over theyears. He knew immediately what the problem was. I've seen several specialists and no one had an answer. He took time to educate me on the problem and told me he do could do a biopsy to confirm the issue. Walked me through the biopsy. Very quick and painless. And I'm a big baby with pain! I highly recommend this doctor. Offices in New York and New Jersey. I visited the office in montclair.

Friendly and sociable doctor. Wait time, however, is a different story. Wouldn't be surprised if they double booked. Never have had an appointment start on time despite always arriving early or at least on time. In addition, similar to otherreviewers, he probably spent less than 10 minutes with me vs the 30+ that I waited. Bottom line? I would probably recommend him just purely for the fact that he's a nice and friendly doctor but if you're looking for someone who will spend more time with you, perhaps look elsewhere.

The appointment went well. He was very professional and went right into my skin problem so in result he was with me a total of 2 minutes after 30 minutes of waiting in the room. After taking time off work, Iexpect at least a 10 minutes consult. Is it really too much to ask to have a relationship with doctors? I truly believe a lot of things in your normal life can be hints to help a diagnostic. Other than that he was very knowledgeable and helpful.

He was quick and efficient. Although he clearly explained everything and definitely took some time to look at my skin, I felt that he was in a rush. Overall, I am satisfied with my visit and will return, but I wouldhave preferred that he spent some more time to get to know about my habits (cleaning, moisturizing, what I eat) and my history.

I am an existing patient with Dr Ciocon. I will always remain loyal to him because of his superior medical background and skill set and of course his warm bed side manner. I would absolutely recommend him as I already have.My friend went to him at another location and thanked me over and over again for referring her as she said he was so precise with all he did and so comforting as she was nervous prior to the appt but said she walked out feeling so much better and so happy.

Truly thorough and caring professional. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Ciocon following a negative experience with another dermatologist, and my expectations were well surpassed. Having researched my cystic acne condition extensively,he listened to my preferred treatment method, and went above and beyond to research on-the-spot an appropriate vitamin regiment to coincide with the antibiotics, whereas the previous doctor's assistant would not even table the discussion. He clearly explained the pros and cons to all treatment options, and bespoke the prescriptions to my personal and family medical history. I would highly recommend Dr. Ciocon.
