Dr. Zuckerman was extremely knowledge and honest with me. He told me the truth about my situation without sugar coating, which I appreciate so much. Schweiger Dermatology continues to impress and I’ll be back to see him on a cosmetic issue at some point, I am sure.

I’ve been to many clinics and doctors before but Dr. Zuckerman is the doctor I will go to from now on. He has a terrific bedside manner and really knows what he’s doing. I feel very comfortable with his knowledge andabilities. He has guided me away from procedures he thought would be just a waste of money and not yield the results I wanted, and has finely tuned the procedures I did have to minimize pain, scaring and recovery time. I highly recommend him.

I was very pleased overall. This was my first visit, hence my hesitation to "highly recommend", but I would go back. I had a bit of a wait time, but nothing excessive. I liked Dr. Zuckerman very much. He's very pleasant and personable. Everything was explained clearly.

Professional, knows what he's doing and sets expectations on the procedure when you ask about it. He has calming instrumental music playing to ease any nervousness - and I enjoyed it. During my follow up, his assistant helped me get mysutures removed and was helpful. I was super late but the office was very accommodating and took me in a few mins after my arrival. Recommend :)

Dr. Zuckerman is far and away the best, most professional plastic surgeon I have been to. I came for facial injectables treatment at his Murray Hill office as I had seen Dr. Zuckerman's specialized techniques on his social media. I wanteda couple specific things: more treatment in one area than another, etc. He listened to exactly what I said and customized my treatment to what I wanted. (I've unfortunately had other plastic surgeons kind of force on me what they "always do".) He didn't try to oversell me on anything and seemed very straight forward. Not to mention I was in and out in 15 minutes! I'll be back!

Dr Zuckerman is absolutely professional, but it shouldn't be this difficult to schedule an appointment. It took me 24 hours and a call to the referring dermatologist to get an appointment. And now I'm trying to schedule for surgery (since itwasn't scheduled while I was there, which is annoying), and of course can't get anyone on the phone or to return my calls. Very annoying.

Very talented doctor but surrounded by incompetent people. His assistant Abby almoat always never returns phone calls. I'm waiting for my surgery meanwhile between that and my last appointment... he hasn't seen me and checked my thumb. It'sclosing already but he hasn't changed the bandages or checked if the wound is swollen. I still feel pain and throbbing

Dr. Zuckerman had previously explained how a short in house procedure could help me achieve the symmetry I wanted. Today he executed that procedure with great precision. I couldn't be happier with his work and would absolutely recommend him to friends and family.

Dr. Zuckerman was very professional and bedside manners were excellent. My only complaint would be the receptionist should have let me know that the previous appointment before me was taking longer then expected. It's not the Doctor's responsibilityto keep the patient's n the waiting area if the appointment is running behind.

They gave me 7:45 am appt. I got there 15 minutes early but they said no one would be there until 8:00 am. O.k. so why did they give me a 7:45 am appt? rescheduled for 11:15 am. Got there 15minutes but waited 1 hour 15 minutes. I had to ask twice about how much longer (once at 1 hour mark, they said very soon. waited 15 minutes more and still no appt, so asked again. Then, they finally called me in but waited in room for another 5 minutes. Dr. came in for 1 minute, then left. Wait time at this office is always at least 45 minutes which means they overbook.

As a person who is extremely sceptical of all medical professionals, I have avoided going to the doctor except under extreme conditions. Dr. Zuckerman gave me a sense of security and assurance that was only matched by his extraordinary talentas he removed a syst from my cheek and restored the symmetry of my face as if it never existed. I would recommend Dr Zuckerman to anyone needing any type of dermal or body treatment. Thank you for your gentleness that is also very evident in all of your staff.
