A great experience overall. I checked in online and did not have to wait too long. The nurse that attended me was friendly and polite, made me feel comfortable and that she was really listening to my needs. Dr. Engelman wasvery friendly as well and put me at ease. I needed a small procedure, she explained everything before she started and talked to me during the procedure. I felt that she listened and allowed me to ask the questions I needed to ask. So often it feels that doctors rush patients out, but I did not feel that way with Dr. Engelman. A great experience!

Dr. Engelman is fantastic, she listened to my concerns and desires carefully and answered my questions thoroughly. She also gave me great product recomendations (both high and low end) and did not only push the brands that she sells in heroffice. She's also gorgeous and although that should not be a factor, it helped me trust her judgement since I visited for cosmetic reasons. I also love that she is quoted in every beauty article I read. New fave derm!

Dr. Engelman was lovely. She addressed my needs immediately and without hesitation, and we created a treatment plan. She assured me that we would have everything taken care of with my skin before my wedding and we scheduled a follow upappointment already to make sure of it! The entire staff at the office (reception, PA's, etc.) were so helpful and sweet. I would recommend to anyone!

Doctor was great (but spent less than 10 mins with her), but the staff was terrible (couldn't answer any questions - starting with billing-related questions, to post-procedure medicine). The waiting time was also ridiculous - approx 50 mins.

This Dr was not for me, or anyone who is looking to feel heard. She has a great office and a very nice staff but the visit was cold. I am in my late 20s and just trying to understand whatsbest for my skin. She came in offered me Botox spent 2 minutes with me and then had her nurse come back in and had me try to sign a pre payment for a dose of juvaderm for the future. I had never been to a dermatologist before and was highly disappointed. If you know your skin very well already and just need an update on medication than she should work fine, but if your really trying to understand your skin and how to keep it healthy find someone else

I have been suffering from severe psoriasis since I was a child and I was looking for a better solution to live with it besides coal tar shampoo and topical sprays. She prescribed me topical spray. Whomp Whomp. Also she seemedvery busy like she didn't have time for me. I think she sat with me for less than a minute. She didn't seem very interested about my concerns. I'm 95% positive that I will not be going back as this is not the kind of treatment I'm looking for.

She had removed a cyst from my scalp with perfection and this time injected a different cyst. She has a very soft touch with the needle so who can complain? All good. Definitely give her a chance. She's worth it, in a big way.

Dr. Engelman is a great dermatologist. It's obvious that she takes her time with each patient and makes sure to respectfully address any and all concerns. There is sometimes a bit of a wait after being escorted from the main waitingroom to a room to be seen, but that is usually under 30 minutes.
