Force you to put a credit card on file or they will not see you - also i had to remind the office days later to send my prescription to the pharmacy. After they finally sent it the pharmacy couldnt fill it bc they didnt provide the correct information. Long story short waste of my time since they neglected to help me get my prescription and i was forced to go to a different dermatologist.
It was good. However, they did not have my booked appointment? Zocdoc probably did not confirm with them?
Dr. Schweiger is an excellent dermatologist who has always been very patient and attentive with me. He takes his time to listen to me and my concerns. I've been going to different offices in the practice for a variety of things for a while now and always recommend them to my friends and family. It is easy to get an appointment and they have locations everywhere that is convenient for everyone.
He kept trying to collect for the amount that the he's not entitled to under the insurance plan - eventually the insurance company had to to issue a formal official letter to him to tell him to stop doing that illegal billing practice.
The procedure I had, CoolSculpting, didn't produce any results. When I pointed out I hadn't seen any real improvement and wanted to compare my after and before pictures, the office responded they had lost my before pictures due to technical issues with the camera the day they were taken.
NEGATIVE experience with Dr. Schweiger re: botox injections. I went back three additional times for corrections only to still have drooping eyelids and other side effects and the manager offered me a free visit AFTER this botched botox experience wears off!! so until then I'll look and feel awful. Next time I will be sure to go to a skilled professional for this kind of treatment. I do not recommend this doctor to anyone. Thank you.
Incredibly long wait times, more than 3 nurses working on one patient. disorganized office, staff, worst experience!!
Long wait time, but quick procedure.
Great doc, highly recommend
I was not particularly impressed. I felt it was more about selling treatments than actually looking after a patient's needs. Then again he only spent about 5 minutes with me.
Everyone was incredibly warm and professional when I came in for a consult AND when I came in for treatment. Dr Shweiger gave great advice, and after my treatment, I saw significant improvement.
Dr. Schweiger seems to care mostly about performing cosmetic procedures and not about explaining things to patients. His bedside manner could use improvement.
Staff and environment was energetic. Waits can sometimes take a bit. But Schweiger listens and treats well. The office decor is also comparatively nicer than most doc offices, which is reassuring but expected of skin care professionals.
i felt he was not very interested; he seemed distracted and rushed
I've visited twice for my acne issues that I got suddenly. I was very frustrated because I didn't know how to take care of it and it was spreading like wildfire leaving scars all over my face. When I visited him for the first time, I felt like he was nice but very impersonal to my issues. He quickly prescribed some medication without listening to issues I was having and rushed out of the room. I didn't know how to properly use the topical creme that my acne got worse and my whole face turned red and blotchy. The medication wasn't really working either. So in the next visit, I prepared a list of questions so I can be efficient with time so I don't steal much of his time. He seemed patient in the beginning but soon he got up trying to wrap up the appointment. I understand that he is a very demanded and busy doctor, but I didn't get enough attention and he just wanted to get the job done quickly. I do not recommend him.
Very thorough PA and accommodating office staff.
Nice office and doctor. Wait time could have been shorter but all and all, nice visit.
Dr Schweiger was very courteous and helpful, and was able to provide help, but was disappointed to find that a product I was sold at the practice was just a private branded version of a cream available at drugstores, but significantly marked up.
Everything was great, except the wait, which was nearly an hour. Otherwise, a terrific experience.
I have been going to Dr. Schweiger for about 5 years now and would highly recommend him. He's an excellent dermatologist.
Overall had a great visit!!
I felt that the doctor was not very personal and would not be friendly or converse or try to get to know you. Felt rushed and didn't take the time to make sure my questions were answered.
very professional and thorough
Very good porfessional.
Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. My procedure (laser scar revision) was priced fairly, and didn't hurt! The waiting room is clean and nicely decorated, and there's bottled water for patients.
Modern, clean and well-run office. Great staff. Dr. Schweiger is excellent. Felt very well taken care of. Efficient but thorough.
The biggest waste of money I ever had, and God knows how little I have it. It was something really important to me, and he came there, didn't even look at my face properly, and sent me some ignorant intern or whatever she was. Awful experience and I couldn't regret it more! Such a disappointment!
I was called into the exam room seconds after checking in with the front desk. I discussed the reason for my visit with a receptionist and then with the physician assistant. Next, the physician assistant consulted with Dr. Schweiger and then they both presented me with a treatment plan. Although I spent only about 3 minutes with him, I feel I received good service. He has a good staff and they work well as a team.
It felt more like a plastic surgery office than a doctor's office. The whole experience felt very cheap and pressured. I likely will not go back.
Everyone is this office is very nice and knowledgable. They took the time to answer all of my questions and they always take you on time for your appointment. I would highly recommend Schweiger Dermatology.
Very sweet and caring. Made me feel comfortable.
Fantastic customer service and professional services. I would highly recommend Dr. Schweiger and his entire team and office. Very happy with them.
I'd really liked how attentive they were. Jessica was super helpful and kind. Dr Schweiger was straightforward and thorough. The only thing I'd change was how long I had to wait - that was a disappointment.
Dr. Schweiger's office is great - but the issue is he never actually came to my appointment on my follow up. They just sent a physician's assistant and it felt rushed.
Professional, smart, well-run office.
It was late in the evening on a Monday, so the doctors were rushing to get all the patients done to leave. Not complaining, but I'd hope for better service for my follow-up. And I'll probably try a more decent hour.
if looking for acne treatment, be prepared that they would recommend you their laser treatment one in every five sentences.
Great experience once I was seen, but it took quite a while to get in.
I strongly recommend dr schweiger and i am also a physician/ dermatopathologist. His office is state-of-the-art and he and his team are kind and professional.
Friendly atmosphere. Though I was seen by three people (medical assistant, physician's assistant, personal assistant) before the doctor saw me. I thought that was a lot of people to see before the doctor dropped by. It also wasn't too busy, so it was interesting. Other than that, Dr. Schweiger was fantastic for the brief time that I saw him. He and his staff members were responsive and friendly to my concerns.
Very great visit. Barely had to wait at all, clean office with friendly people. They gave me a discount card for my prescriptions and phoned them in for me without any problem!
Great experience! They really took the time to answer all my concerns.
Dr. Schweiger is excellent, I have been his patient for a couple of years, and wholeheartedly recommend him.
They run a paperless office and I think this cuts down the wait time and increases efficiency. The best office visit I've had with any doctor, ever.
Saw his nurse who was so wonderful. Very knowledgable and helpful and didn't try to sell me any products from the office. Just a pleasant visit!!
very good. hope his medicine works for me.
Dr. Schweiger is a great doctor. For two years, my daughter and I went many places for my daughter's acne problem but without good result. However, only after my daughter see Dr. Schweiger two times, her skin become clean! Now my daughter's acne is gone and she likes her new look so much!
All was very good except that most of the visit was with the physician's assistant and very little time with the actual doctor. The physician's assistant was very good so my rating is really for her. The only negative is that she was very short so I had to lie down on an uncomfortable chair and flip over at one point instead of just standing during the exam (which is how it worked with the doctor). I would get the physician's assitant a step stool rather than make patient's contort on an uncomfortable chair.
Wrong choice to go to him. My decision was based on his ratings. Now I know that I can no long count on the website reviews. Some of the reviews I do believe were from actual patients. However, some others were from his staff, friends and/or related parties.
Very personable. Very knowledgeable. Appreciated that he was cognizant of time, and therefore consultation was succinct and professional.
I had a bad experience during a recent visit to my Dermatologist at Mnt Sinai Hospital I contacted my Insurance company who put me in contact with Dr. Schweiger's office and was able to get an appointment on a very short notice. All the staff were very professional. I am more than pleased with my visit and will definately both recommend and use dr S. again myself.
Great Team of professionals.
Very corteous with a caring approach. Offices are nice and the staff are polite.
Very professional and so was the staff. I am going back next week for treatments. If all goes well I will be going back for more treatments.
Everything was very good, I think was too quick, I had other questions,,, let's see how will be the next appointment
Very professional and to the point. Didn't ask too many questions about my skin/cleansing habits and were pretty willing to write perscriptions for medications for my acne. Fine by me, as long as it works!
Great bedside manner and very caring - would recommend him highly!
Very prompt, kind, and professional. He is a great example of perfect bedside manner.
Amazing staff, incredibly sterile environment--just a great experience.
It's always busy when I go there so they must be doing something right! Dr S is utterly professional, honest and clearly a very talented doctor. I'm glad I discovered him and his practice.
Professional and clean office
I thought it was great. A bit too quick. Maybe. A more indepth explination of issue,but overall a good experience
He's on time; there is no wasted time and he seems to be quite thorough
Nice doctor. But rushes you in and out of the office.
Very much enjoyed meeting the good Doctor Schweiger. He immediately addressed my concerns, explained his choices for recommended treatments and I will be seeing him again Friday morning May 18th.
very professional and understanding
I waited too long for the appointment- more than 1 hour. When I checked in, the girls at the desk did not even acknowledge me and were rude when I tried to check in. The dr was ok but obviously overbooked and running between patients. Finally be aware that his fees are very high
Dr Schweiger was great! He was very caring and patient. We went through all of my past acne regiments and came up with a new one. Cant wait to see how it works.
Very nice office. The doctor was friendly and down to earth. Not what you would expect from Fancy Park Ave address... Can't comment on the procedure since results are not known yet.
His PA saw me first then it took him a while to come in and see me. When he finally came into the examination room, he was very brief in his exam. He could not tell me why I had a rash on my face but quickly wanted to prescribe a strong oral medicine. When I refused it, he switched to a topical one and asked me to return in two weeks. I walked away feeling uneasy.
He was quick but he was to the point. I would recommend him.
I was seen by a different doctor who was a delight! Dr. Schweiger also came in for few seconds re:concern and was very friendly.
The doctor and his staff are extremely personable, and effective.
Dr. Schweiger was excellent. I would also add that his staff and assistant were superb, professional and very efficient.
Vry knoledgable and professional.
Staff was very friendly. Barely any wait time. I felt comfortable the entire time, especially in what can be a very sensitive situation. After my first visit, I recommended a family member to try out the Schweiger office
He was quick but it's my first time so we'll see how the treatment goes.
Great office and nice set-up! I would prefer a medical team to truly engage with the patient and get to know them as a person.
He was great. I had a mark that I was concerned about and he made me feel so much better about it while at the same time taking concern and scheduling a follow up just to be absolutely certain. I also had some other concerns that we spoke about briefly and he was a big help with that as well. Overall a great office.
He is very knowledgeable, thorough and professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!
Dr. Schweiger and his PA Brooke were great and very helpful! I am glad they take my insurance.
I waited at max 2 min after i arrived. One of Dr Schweiger's associates gave me a look over, answered all of my questions, and even had Dr. Schweiger come in when I had a stupid question. They answered all of my questions with the utmost patience and i left feeling we had a plan to take care of my issue.
Doctor was nice, PA was really nice. Wait time was ridiculous. Don't come here on your lunch break.
Dr Schweiger didn't spend much time with me, it was more of his assistant and less of him.
I had a great visit. Painless.
the doctor was great. the receptionist was fairly rude.
Great experience- Both Dr. Schweiger and his assistant were very accomodating, very polite and very easy to speak to.
LISTENS TO PATIENTS CONCERNS AND CARES.
Very friendly and helpful advice.
The staff is so friendly, kind and helpful! The office is lovely, very sleek, modern and clean. Everyone seemed genuinely concerned with helping me, and went out of their way to make sure I would be getting the treatments that would work best for me. Awesome!
Great staff, very efficient, comfortable and pleasant visit. Highly recommend!
It was great
Very professional and easy to talk to! Nice, supportive staff.
I was extremely impressed with Dr. Schweiger and his entire staff. I'm hoping my results will be just as fantastic.
He was very nice and professional - Brooke Studley was also amazing and very friendly and thorough. I would definitely recommend both of them!
Front desk clerks amazing! Dr Eric Schweiger ,swift and very helpful,Brock must be his assistant found her to be very helpful as well ,Thanks i will see you in 2 weeks ,Already recommended a special friend
It was a great experience! I am struggling with adult acne which has put me in a low place and at times feeling depressed. I felt very comfortable talking to Dr. Eric Schweiger and to Brooke Studley (she's the best!!) They understood how I felt and were very compassionate. I can't wait to see my final results!
Pleasant atmosphere, relaxed environment. Very professional and amicable doctors.
went very well so far . I need to heal from the laser treatments to see the result..will take weeks I think.
Dr Schweiger was great!! He had an answer to all my questions and was able to solve my problem. I felt very comfortable with him and his staff.
I was a patient at his old office. Dr Schweiger's new office is beautiful and I was seen right away! I am happy that I followed Dr Schweiger to his own practice and appreciate that he remembers me and my medical history.
I have had chronic issues with rosacea and had been previously treated to no solution. Dr. Schweiger's immediate remedy worked instantly. His recommendation was to treat the ance from the rosacea and then focus on the other issues assocated. I am very pleased and will continue to make him my dermatologist!
The dude knows his stuff.
the doctors were friendly and gave give me the information i needed
He was extremely impersonal, making very limited eye contact with me during the five minutes he took to see me. There were no explanations in his diagnosis; he simply expected me to accept the prescription he wrote out withought even knowing how it would alleviate the issue. He even started to leave before discussing all of the reasons for my visit. Overall, the experience was quite negative and I have no intention of ever returning.
Very straight forward and nice.
The wait was roughly 30 minutes. Not terrible, but not prompt either. The reception area was nice and all the staff members that I encountered were courteous, including the doctor. He provided a range of treatment options. The first treatment will take about 6 weeks. We will see what the results are at the end of that time. I was impressed that the office used electronic filing to request pharmacy information ahead of time....but then I still had to take prescriptions to the pharmacist. After I went to the pharmacy to fill the prescription, I was told that the doctor's office would have to call in the prescription for me because of insurance issues. Since it's a routine prescription, you'd think that the doctor's office would have known that ahead of time. Annoying but not terrible. Hopefully, the treatment goes well and these are just minor logistical issues.
Very friendly. Great diagnosis process. Definitive answers and treatment. Squeezed me in at the last minute.
a true pro!
very unprofessional office staff, was horrified by the lack of patient confidentiality exhibited in the office
Everyone was very polite and professional.
md schweiger is very friendly and a real professional.
Excellent visit - listened to my concerns and came up with an effective course of action! Highly recommended!
suggested a best approach in tacking my uneven tone skin and scars. very thankful.
Me 100th review placer. nice. Good doctor . experienced. I recommend Dr.E.S to the teenagers who face acne issues. Patient has to of course ask lot of questions , do thorough research to be able to ask Dr. E.S questions. Good staff. No issues with them. After my laser thingy it has now become a waiting game to see how it will turn out for me after few days. jb042011 at gmail
They made me feel very welcomed and comfortable during the whole visit! Dr. Schweiger is very professional and has genuine concern for his patients. Well done!
I was very pleased with my visit. Office is clean and bright all personal were friendly - Would recommend highly to anyone.
The visit went well, however, what made the visit sour was the wait time. I waited for 15 minutes in the waiting room, which is normal, and an additional 50 minutes in the patient room after his physician's assistant performed the initial assessment. Frankly I thought I was forgotten.
Professional and accommodating. Great assistants and friendly reception staff. Excellent experience.
I was very touched and amazed. I googled Dr.Schweiger and saw a news interview and felt the urge to try a consultation. I went in for my appointment, there was a message on my cell I did not get to reschedule because the doctor was not feeling well, They serviced me anyway everyone including his assistants are very nice and professional and the medication is working well on me immidiately. I felt very touched not being a patient with a history of coming in for appointments and they serviced all my need and concerns about my skin. My skin means everything to me. It is my pride and for someone to treat me that way, it means that they are really passionate about what they're doing.
He was very personable and approachable. He was also very willing to listen to questions. I didn't get the same feeling I get with a lot of doctors that you are wasting their time by asking anything.
super professional staff & did the consultation & procedure during the same visit. would totally go back/recommend.
Dr. Schweiger was diligent and extremely knowledgeable. He put me at ease the moment he sat down. I would recommend him to anyone.
Very pleasant and quick.
rude staff. Incompetent! Good doctor. Seemed to care about my issue and did not push to upsell treatment or products.
Very professional - will continue to visit this practise
Very comfortable/ addressed all my concerns
This Doc is awesome! i would highly recommend him to anyone.
He was awesome!!
Dr. Schweiger is a diamond in a beautiful new setting! As an acne sufferer for most of my adult life, I've seen my share of dermatoligists and he is the best by far. I recommend him highly.
Only my first visit, but I would definitely recommend Dr. Schweiger.
Dr. Schweiger is my hero. I had the fractional CO2 laser and I look 10 years younger. It's a miricle. Thanks Doc.
Great, friendly staff and the doctor was lovely.
Dr. Schweiger is very pleasant and made me feel at ease. All my questions were answered. His assistants were very professional and I particularly like the friendly atmosphere.
very nice, with very nice staff.
Dr.Scheweiger was terrific...... He made me feel extremely comfortable.... His professional approach made me feel extremely confident....Marc
Very nice office, staff, and service.
He was very nice and informative.
Dr. Schweiger was very personable and very knowledgeable. I will definitely continue to see him in the future.
Dr. Schweiger has cured my daughters scarring acne when other dermatologists could not. He explains options, discusses things in great detail and has a wonderful manner especially with dealing with a teenage girl and an overprotective mother. The staff is kind and professional, we are always seen in a timely manner and although we moved and now have to travel nearly 2 hours to see him, there is no other dermatologist I will trust with the care of my daughter.
From a tough critic-Dr. Schweiger is terrific: professional,knowledgeable, understanding, trustworthy and very considerate. Office staff is great, very friendly and efficient. I recently moved to NYC and needed to see a physician asap; appt was easy to book and I was seen in within a matter of two days. Excellent MD, recommended with highest regard!
Nice office and a nice doctor. Would definitely recommend to others and will use him again in the future.
the staff and doctors were extremely friendly and kind and involved. a great practice. recommended!
The service was excellent - very friendly and easy. thank you
Dr. Schweiger is the kindest and most compassionate medical professional I have ever met. He knows his stuff, clearly, but really seemed to listen to and care about my concerns as a patient as well. As a result, I feel confident that he designed the treatment plan that would truly work best for me as an individual.
I think this would be my last visit. They always seem to be in a rush at this place.
I enjoyed the staff. Especially the lady at the desk. It would've had I not felt like I was being rushed off. (the ending) The visit was great until the end. But he seems to be competent.
Excellent Dr and staff. Heartily recommended.
Great guy and did the job.
Nice office, nice and accomodating doctor. All around great experience.
Friendly, Professional. Nice office.
The appointment was quick,and he was very warm and proffessional. Most importantly his staff was polite and warm as well.
Just went in for random cause. In by 10 out by 11 past.
Was very happy with this doctor and will be going back to.
Courteous, nice offices, kind staff. In short a very pleasant appointment.
Very attentive and considerate, highly recommend!
