Verified Patient Reviews
She was personable, professional and friendly.
Dr. Flamenbaum was thorough, kind, and correctly diagnosed my skin condition that had been previously misdiagnosed. I am very happy with her as a doctor, and plan on returning for all of my future skincare needs.
It's an extremely clean, modern, and efficient practice. Everyone was very friendly and seemed to know what they were doing and answered all of my questions promptly without hesitation. Their choice of waiting room music was refreshing too :) Very professional place!
She's very pleasant but since I'm used to my primary doctor who really makes you feel that he is in no hurry even if there are patients waiting, she suffers in comparison.
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
Dr. Flamenbaum is friendly and warm, yet extremely professional. She takes time to address all your concerns. I would definitely recommend her.
She is great and if you book the first apt you are taken promptly
My visit was completely professional,pleasant and comprehensive..this has been my experience with Dr. Flamenbaum since I became a patient many,many years ago. She is the best!
Doctor was great, what a sweetheart! Front desk was extremely rude when I mentioned financial assistance. Told me there wasn't any when it is offered on their website in plain english. I will not return because of the front desk's manners.
Extremely pleasant, very professional and thorough.
Dr. Flamenbaum was friendly, informative, reassuring and professional. I highly recommend her.
I've been a patient of Dr. Flamenbaum's for 10 years. She's sweet and efficient. I highly recommend her.
The office is modern and clean, the staff is professional. The Dr. was great, thorough, answered all my questions, and was quick without being rushed. Looks like I found my new dermatologist.
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. Flamenbaum got 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 at the 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.
She was very thorough with my exam, answered all my questions, and made me feel comfortable.
She only spent about 10 minutes with me but on the other hand she was very professional during that time. Just needs to look at the appointment clock a little closer.
Beautiful, modern office. I've been buying her products for a couple of years which are inexpensive and highly effective. She has a lovely manner and is a delight.
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 the case 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 has been the family's dermatologist for years. She is professional, thorough, with a professional and at the same time friendly manner!
Dr Flamenbaum is a great practitioner. She cares about her patients
Dr. Flamenbaum runs a very clean and professional office. Her staff is just as efficient, helpful, understanding and compassionate as she is. Dr. Flamenbaum was both competent and personable, a combination that one hopes to encounter in all doctors.
Dr. Flamenbaum took care of some sun damaged skin. She gave me clear after visit instructions.
She was wonderful! She addressed all of my issues and was very knowledgeable. She even addressed issues of mine that I wasn't aware of. Very thorough. Pleasant. It was definitely worth the wait until I had insurance that she accepted. Awesome!!!
Kudos to her office manager who helped with several issues the past week and is efficient and kind the office is lucky to have her as an employee
I was very satisfied with my appointment. I was deciding whether to switch to a dermatologist closer to my home, after having moh surgery there. I decided to stay with Dr Flamenbaum.
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.
I've been going to Dr F for years & always enjoy going back to her. I feel safe & worry free after seeing her. I've even moved far from her offices & prefer to still travel to get treated by her. I trusted her & would highly recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Flamenbaum is very knowledgeable, professional and has a great bedside manner. She explained everything she was doing and left no questions unanswered. Her staff was also very cordial and friendly. Unlike other doctor's offices, you are seen almost immediately upon arrival.
Accurate diagnosis. Additional appointment made. Careful observation and professional , calming demeanor. Very clean and simple environment. Pleasant assistants.
Great! I waited about 2 minutes to see her and she took care of me and had me out very quickly. I was completely satisfied with the visit.

The office and rooms are exceptionally clean. The wait time was less than 10 minutes. Dr. Flamenbaum addressed all of my concerns and made sure to ask me if I had additional questions.

Competent, thorough and great bedside manner. The best that I and my husband have experienced. We flew up from Florida to continue with Dr. Flamenbaum. This doctor is worth it.
Dr. Flamenbaum has been the dermatologist for our family for about 25 years-with good reason. She is pleasant while at the same time professional, taking time to explain what she is doing and what her findings and suggested treatments are!!
She is a doll and very competent, through and professional
Her assistant and herself were very nice and professional. The reception area wasn't as nice. At first I felt a little uncomfortable because the office looked like a Beverly Hills office and I thought the doctor would be snobbish but she was great. Would definitely recommend.

During the exam, she was extremely thorough, patient, professional, and explained everything she was doing. She demonstrated she is a top doctor, and deserves the highest recommendation possible.
Very pleasant and detailed on my condition
Very friendly & efficient staff. I arrived 10 minutes before my scheduled appointment and was called within 5 minutes. Dr Flamenbaum was very nice and very professional. I received a full body check & removal of a tiny growth on my arm. I had a 3:45 appointment & was on the road at 4:05.
Great doctor, no wait, saw me for a follow-up last minute.
Dr. Flamenbaum and her staff was very friendly, professional and easy to speak with. She diagnosed my problem quickly and offered sound advice to keep the problem at bay. Very satisfied and will not hesitate to see her again.
By far the nicest dr EVER. The entire practice from receptionist to physicians assistant to Dr were all amazing. Hands down one of the most pleasant experiences I've ever had going to a doctors office.
The Doctor was very professional and reassuring. I understood the situation and am no longer worried that I will have a serious problem. It was a big relief. They also gave me an appointment quickly so I didn't have to over worry about the prognosis.
I would definitely recommend Dr Flamenbaum. She was quick but thorough and reassuring. I felt very comfortable under her care
Dr. Flamenbaum is professional, prompt, pleasant and thorough. She gets down to business and takes care of any issues the patient mentions. I find her business-like, yet empathetic style just the right combination for a successful medical treatment. Any follow-up is carefully explained and materials are even furnished for home care. All in all, a fine experience.
I appreciated meeting with Dr. Flamenbaum. She was friendly, seemed very knowledgeable and I am hoping her prescribed treatment will help me. Her office was nice and her staff courteous.
Dr. Flamenbaum is very professional; she takes time to listen to my concerns, and she answers all of my questions thoroughly
my visit was good because she is very kind and calm.Her delivery of my diagnosis was less painful than my problem.She is a pro and I feel that I am in good hands with her.
I loved her she is good and perfect timing
Going to the doctor, any doctor, is usually a chore. Meeting with Dr Flamenbaum, on the other hand, was a very pleasant experience. She was courteous, professional and friendly. I asked what I could remember to ask (don't we always forget all the things we wanted to ask?) and she answered everything to my complete satisfaction. I have made more appointments to complete my treatments and instead of dreading them, I believe she will be able to help me with my problems. All in all, a very nice visit and I would highly recommend her to anyone with a dermatology issue.
Pleasant attentive thorough and kind....an overall great experience.
Lovely...very professional and informative.
She seemed nice, professional and was quick (it was for an annual preventative skin check).
I was shocked and should have walked out when she asked "Well what do you want me to do?" I came in with my arm in a temp splint that my doctor wanted check as I was having a reaction. I had to undo the wrapping and re-wrap my arm myself. All she did was look at the skin and gave me a cream. When I asked for new wrapping she said she didn't have any. Stay away, my doctor upon learnin this felt the same way.
Quick visit. I was seen within 10 minutes from parking my car. Very nice bedside manner and overall I will be returning in 6months.
Best doctor I've been to in ages! Made me feel very comfortable and quite humorous as well! Definitely an added bonus to make me feel more comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Flamenbaum. Really took the time to listen to my questions and advise me.
I have been going to Dr. Flamenbaum's office for years. She and her staff are always friendly and professional.
Addressed the problem quickly. Seems very knowledgeable. Professional office staff a good experience
She was helpful.
Dr. Flamenbaum has a wonderful manner. You never feel rushed and she has a genuine concern for the patient
This was my first visit and I am looking forward to my next one!
Dr. Flamenbaum only saw me for 5-7 mins she completely ignored my concerns, she barely examined my skin but was quick to try and sell her overpriced skin products. I would never go back or recommend her to anyone especially since my skin concern turned out to be a bacterial infection.
Dr is very professional. Wait time was good! Staff was very friendly
Very professional and although the office was busy did not seem rushed during my appt.
Dr. Flamenbaum was really nice and friendly. I didnt wait long at all. I would go back.
First time seeing a dermatologist and I was very satisfied with my overall experience. Will visit again.
My parents have been seeing her for years, so when I had a skin concern, they recommended I see her. She was friendly, helpful, and there was minimal wait time. I'd recommend seeing her as well.
It was great. She was very nice, thorough and explained everything well and made me feel at ease
Didn't take much time with me and she didn't seem to care.

My visit was outstanding! Dr. Flamenbaum was terrific... she spoke to me like a regular human being and was very genuine (not easy to find these days). Her bedside manner was awesome. I would definitely recommend her to everyone I know... so happy with my visit!
very accommodating and helpful
Office does not take patients according to scheduled appointment time, but based on arrival. Dr Flamenbaum was late getting into the office and we had to wait over a hour. To her credit she did apologize.
Very sincere, down to earth and informative dermatologist. Had to wait for 40 minutes before seeing the doctor and I was the first appointment; otherwise, it was a great experience.
I went to the appointment with both my daughters. The three of us were treated so nicely by the staff, and by Dr. Flamenbaum. She was engaging to the girls and really listened to them when she asked a question. We all really liked her and would definitelenly recommend her to our friends and family. The only drawback I experienced was the prescriptions we received were very expensive for my insurance company and I cannot afford them. I called the office and they are working on seeing about generic substitutes, and said they would give me more samples. It was a nice way to resolve a problem. : )
Nice doctor but waiting time was close to an hour and actual visit was 5 minutes long!
she is a wonderful doctor with a great and calming manner
Professional no nonsense doctor
Wait time is too long
GREAT tHE DOC IS FREINDLY AND QUICK
Efficient and the Dr. was friendly and open to questions
She was really nice and had very good suggestions. I just felt a bit rushed tho. Bedside manner not too good.
