Dr. Herschtal on seeing him for the very first visit I had, he was very plesant and gave me all the information I needed for my minor surgery. I actually recommended him to one of my family member already.

I have been seeing Doctor Herschthal for over 20 years, he always has a friendly staff in the office, and he is rated 5 stars in my book.
Dr David Herschthal is by far the best dermatologist I have ever used. He is professional as well as engaging and pleasant. His facilities and staff at his Boca office are first class. I would recommend him to my friends as I have. Allen in Boca
Everybody is extremely nice and helpful.
I can tell Dr. Herschthal is an expert in his field. He took the time to explain problems and mentioned foods to stay away from. My biggest concern with the practice is the pressure and urge to buy products. Face wash, lotion, sun screen it's too much to put on patients who are vulnerable because of skin problems. Give me the prescription and over the counter recommendations with your products as an option.
David Herschthal is an outstanding Doctor with extensive knowledge. I originally saw Dr. Herschthal for a painful itchy rash that 4 previous dermatologists misidentified & this did not treat the problem. Dr. Herschthal, also a Medical School Professor, immediately identified the rash & successfully tested it.
Another great visit. Appointment was on time and the physician and staff were extremely friendly. The office is always focused on excellent customer service.
Dr HERSCHTHAL is always thorough and happy to answer all your questions. His staff are all friendly courteous and knowledgeable. There is never a long wait. One of the best dermatologists I have ever seen
Appreciate his caring and professionalism in dealing with my skin issues. Even small cosmetic concerns are handled with care. A very pleasant doctor.
He's great, always so friendly and easy to share normally embarrassing skin things with.
Dr. Herschthal is a fantastic doctor. I have been going to him for almost 30 years and I would highly recommend him as your dermatologist !!!
Hard to believe that a high point of my quarterly visits to South Florida is seeing a dermatologist! But it's true. My Mom has been getting great care for years, and now I'm tagging along.
First ever visit with him, he took his time to listen to me. Last visit and today's I felt he was more concerned about getting to the next patient instead of talking about my concerns.
When I had to wait longer than expected, I was a little put out. However, when I met with the Doctor my opinion totally changed. He spends a lot of time with you getting to know you and taking care of the reason you were there in the first place. It was my first visit and I will definitely go back. He is very personable, which a lot of doctors are not.
Wait was too long.
Everybody was very nice. The doctor was very personable and took his time with me. Carol was very knowledgeable and walked me through the entire process that was done to me.
Very Knowledgeable professional.
Dr. Herschthal tends to push his drives!
he was very professional and passion with my 7 years old son
I had a great experience with Dr. David Herschthal. The office is very nice and clean, and everyone was friendly. I arrived about 5 minutes early for my appointment and was seen right away. Dr. Herschthal was able to diagnose my lip infection as staph on sight alone, and he prescribed medication that had my lips looking and feeling drastically better within 2 days. A culture confirmed Dr. Herschthal's diagnosis. I would highly recommend Dr. Herschthal, and being able to book here on ZocDoc is another excellent convenience.
Dr. Herschthal is professional and friendly. I am comfortable in conversing with the Dr. He is knowledgeable and explains things thoroughly and with ease of understanding. I brought my wife in to meet with the Dr. for consultation, that's how confident I am with his expertise. My wife declined facial products and I made a purchase of Body Wash and Moister creme, as well as a prescription on the Doctor's recommendation...
I was extremely nervous about my procedure. However, Dr. Herschthal provided step-by-step information as he performed the process which really made me feel at ease.
Highly professional and a very informative and thorough visit.
The doctor took his time, full history including all previous diagnosis. I was surprised at the thoroughness of the interview process as I am in the health care provider business as well he simply didn't miss any pertinent points. The office was friendly and professional and very important private. I will continue to use his services. The fact that he shares an office with his dermatologist daughter also serves as to the level of commitment to the profession. Amazing experience.
Dr. Herschthal was the best Dermatologist I have visited to date and I am up there in age! Very through and a subject matter expert in his field.

Always Very Professional, Pleasant and Caring or Sensitive to My and Patients' Medical and Personal Needs!!
Dr. Herschthal, Is always very polite, professional and truly caring. You will never leave his office with any un- answered questions from either him or his staff. Years prior I thought I was receiving a "proper" examination, Wow was I ever mislead by my prior doctor, who gave a quick glance, with me believing I was properly examined. Dr. Herschthal examined me from the top of my head to the tips of toes. His demeanor is quite unique in making you feel very comfortable at a time of stress. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking PROPER doctors care and direction. THANKS YOU Dr. & staff
I liked the doctor and so far am happy I went to him. I am not finished with my treatment so will withhold an opinion until I see what the results are.
My first contact with his office was with his staff who were all professional, helpful and polite. I was warmly greeted upon arrival. The receptionist area is open so they can see and hear you. I waited less than five minutes to be taken into a room and less than ten minutes before the doctor appeared. Dr. Herschthal treats you with respect and kindness. He does not rush you through the examination and he is very thorough. I highly recommend Dr. Herschthal. I drive 25 minutes to go see him and it is well worth the drive.
Felt a little rushed and the doctor didn't really ask much but overall he seemed to know what he was doing.
Dr. Herschthal was very friendly, proessional and courteous. Explained everything to me and I felt very comfortable. A++ service. Office staff very freindly and prompt. Great experience again.
I have been going to Dr. Herschthal for years now, VERY professional and friendly!!
Dr. Herschtal and his staff have a wonderful way of making a patient comfortable and at ease.
Doctor was very personable and address my immediate concerns.
Superb person and office. Very friendly staff members. Dr. David Herschthal listens and attends to your concerns. Appreciate his professionalism and I will recommend anyone I know who needs a dermatologist. Recent and New patient
very pleasant as always
He is an excellent Dermatologist and an extrememly likeable person.
When I went into waiting Room it was not more then 5 minutes the Doctor came in. He dealt thoroughly with my issues and had time to talk about life. I actually enjoy my visits and leave feeling Im doing all I can to deal with preventing skin cancer. Plus the Office has great, the best, skin care products.
Doctor H. has ALWAYS given me amply time to explain any concerns that I mat have regarding my skin condition. He is very polite and probably one of the FEW remaining PROFESSIONALS LEFT IN THE" MEDICAL WORLD. ." I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM !!!!!!!!!! His office staff also are very courteous and accommodating. Kurt k
Outstanding professional who has a complete knowledge of his profession. Excellent bedside manner, takes the time to explain everything he is doing and makes you feel like a friend and not a patient. Would highly recommend his services.

My family is a third generation of patients with Dr. Herschthal. He's smart and compassionate with his patients and takes his time with you which rare these days. He's a great diognostic dermatologist.
Excellent Doctor. great staff !!!
Very comforting and professional. Beautiful office
He is great and has controlled a skin issue that I have had all of my life. No one else has been able to do that.
Sincere and full attention to my concerns. A doctor I and my family have known for many years. I trust him with my health. That is the greatest compliment .
He was very professional and friendly
Excellent Doctor. Real Cool. Good conversation and made me aware of things that I did not know of! I have already recommended family and friends!
Dr. Herschthal saw my 3 year old daughter. He immediately made her feel comfortable and at ease in the exam room. He spoke clearly and directly to me, so that I understood the treatment options for my daughter. When it came time to treat my daughter, which required a shot, he talked her through it and handled the matter very quickly. She didn't cry or flinch. Thanks to him, he wasn't scared whatsoever.
Everything was great until he suggested I get Botox or gel injections. I didn't go there for a cosmetic consultation. I was there for a rash on my face. He seemed pompous and narcissistic. The nurses were lovely and very informative.
I was apprehensive, I didn't know Dr David I only had one meeting with him before he schedule me for a 3x laser photo rejuvenation. I didn't know what to expect. They take photos of you, all sides of your face, not a fan of having my picture taken. Then remove all signs of makeup with alcolhol (very strong smelling), you put a headband around your head to keep back your hair. Then Dr. David comes in and starts Zapping away, believe me it hurts! I'll be better prepared next time, since I have to do it 3x. It still shocks you, 2 or 3 times I jumped durning the process even though I knew it was coming, it (the pain) just surprised me. I go back in 3 weeks. It wasn't so bad, I just wasn't prepared, everything I read said you hardly feel a thing. Can't wait to see what he has in store for me next time. All in all it went quickly about 30 min. little to pay for all the damage I've done to my skin through the years. I can't wait to see the final results, I'll be done by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, so I'll have something to be thankfull for, Thanks Dr David, I'm excited to see the final results, untill Thanksgiving..... I'll let you know..
My experience at Dr. Herschthal's office was great. He is extremely personable and every staff member that I spoke with was very sweet and professional.
My visit was very informative. I will have to visit Brooklyn NY in the future. I am scheduled for another visit in November.
Very satisfied, I have recommended his Boca practice to a friend of mine.

It was as usual, quick, efficient, and painless!
Always a pleasure, he puts you at ease with his obvious knowledge and expertise.
This was my second time with Dr. David and I really like the whole experience. He is kind, helpful and doesn't rush any process. He explains everything and what to expect.
It was perfect

My experience with Dr. Herschthal was very pleasant. The office is very well decorated and organized. The nurses are very nice and polite. Dr. Herschthal, himself, was very professional and friendly. Overall, I enjoyed my visit.
This was my first visit with the doctor. Very comfortable and pleasant experience. Beautiful office, professional and courteous staff, and a doctor from my old neighborhood. Very impressive. My wife is going to use him as well.
The Herschthal team was kind, knowledgeable, and prompt; with respect to booking appointments, checkin in/out, product knowledge and making me feel special and cared for during my time with each of them. The office environment was clean, well located with ample parking. Most importantly, Dr Herschthal is a caring man with a kind bedside manner, unlike no other. Totally impressed with my experience and the treatment was effective as well. Thank you all!!!

The staff is great and the doctor puts you at ease and makes you feel very confortable before any procedure.
Very professional, as usu. excellent staff
Dr. Herschthal is the most thorough dermatologist I've ever been to. I have had some issues and he is always attentive to them and errs on the side of caution.
I am an aesthetician. Dr. Herschthal's work is of such a high standard that I send five of my clients to him. They all were very appreciative of the recommendation.
Dr Herschtal is the best
This place is really awesome. Definitely going to go back.
Although there was a wait time, the doctor and staff are simply amazing! Dr. David takes time to explain the issues and treatment plan in detail. The staff is friendly and professional and they make you feel like they're happy to have you as a patient. I spent a lot of time looking for a great dermatologist and I'm happy to have finally found one.
Having had a bad experience with another dermatologist I was dreading this appointment. I can't praise Dr. Herschthal and his staff enough. Everyone was so friendly and professional. I never felt uncomfortable and am looking forward to my next visit.
My daughter and I both had our first appointment with Dr. Herschtal today. We were both very impressed with the staff as well as Dr. Herschthal. The young lady that was working at the reception desk was extremely helpful.. She went way above and beyond to help me. We had a wonderful experience. Thank you!

It went very well, he is very clear and straight to the point on what is best for you.
Excellent! He performed the entire evaluation - NO PA Assistants! Apologized for extended wait when his previous patient kept him longer than anticipated.
I have been seeing Dr David Herschthal since 1989. I would not keep coming back if he did not do a good job.

Dr. Herschthal is an amazing doctor. I have gone to him for over 30 years.
Highly recommend for competence and manner
Very professional, makes you feel at ease, and is happy to answer any questions. I often walk away from dermatologists feeling they provided easy answers without really understanding the specific needs of my skin and more importantly, the emotional frustration I feel. Not the case with David.
Great doctor but very unprofessional and rude staff
Very professional and thorough.
Thought he was great. Very direct no bs.
