Dr David Herschthal took the time to chat about my skin concerns and did a very comprehensive full body scan. An area was identified as a potential problem with a biopsy of the suspect area which was then tested and reportedback as a benign lesion. To my delight there is no visible scar. I am on track for major improvements to the look of my skin with a treatment schedule outlined by Dr David Herschthal that is as much about prevention and identification of possible future problems. The staff is terrific and the office setting is calming and serene. I appreciate the text and emailed appointment confirmations right to my cell phone. As soon as I entered the office for the first time a month ago, I knew I was in the right place!

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.
