I remember the wait time being terribly long!! But the receptionists were very welcoming as soon as I came in. However, when I saw the Doctor, she was polite but she didn’t address my concerns. And she was behaving as ifshe was in a rush to get somewhere. I left her office twice as confused then when I came in.

I felt very comfortable wih Dr. Flamenbaum. She was helpful, nice and of course doesn't hurt that she helped me figure out my issue and treatment. The rest of the staff are nice as well. Easy parking at the building too.I am not really into the idea of rating health care professionals but if it helps others see someone good I guess it is alright. Great visit.

She was wonderful and very friendly and knew her stuff. The only thing is it would have been nice if she wrote down the instructions of when to use each medication because it was a lot of information at once

I came in for hormonal acne and I was given a antibiotic plus two topical treatments. Worked AMAZINGLY I had no negative side effects( dryness, redness etc.) normally associated with acne treatments plus I saw immediate effects. Dr. Flamenbaumgot it right on the first try. Could not be happier with the progress.

Less than 5 minutes in waiting room before, doctor was ready for exam before I was in the exam room. She has recommended a tinted moisturizer and eye cream worth the price as compared to over the counter.

Dr. Flamenbaum is a total professional as she takes the time to listen to you and explains clearly what the treatment options are. I highly recommend her. The only issue I have is with the office as the two receptionists atthe front desk are not professional, provide poor customer care and respond as it is their office. To bad they are unable to welcome a person with a smile.

Dr. Flamenbaum was extremely warm and friendly. I went in for a yearly skin cancer screening and Dr. Flamenbaum was great. I have been to past dermatologists whom always seem to interrogate patients about their skin and habits - not thecase here! The doctor notes the importance of protecting your skin and wearing sunblock without feeling like I am being lecture and judged based on my life. Bonus - we only waiting maximum of 15 in total (from waiting room to exam room) to be seen (super efficient!).

Dr. Flamenbaum is wonderful. She is a great dr and knows what she's doing. I was disappointed though waiting 45 minutes to see her. I was told that on Mondays she is triple booked and I don't think that is considerate of the patient's time.
