Dr. Judith Hellman, MD

Dermatologist

Professional statement

“I find Dermatology personally gratifying” says Dr. Hellman. “I come in contact with many people on a daily basis, which I enjoy tremendously. It also allows me to utilize the fine motor skills which I developed during my musical training in performing surgical and aesthetic procedures of all kinds. I especially enjoy helping my patients improve their appearance in relatively short periods of time, boosting their self-esteem, and giving them the confidence they need to feel that they can go out and conquer the world. This is the greatest gratification a physician can hope for.”

She was terrific! I was nervous, okay, very nervous, because that’s what I do. But she was wonderful, real and even had a great way of gently scolding me for my tan. I absolutely would recommend her to anyone who needs a kind, understanding AND professional dermatologist.

Weird and unprofessional. She was dressed like she was on her way to a club, not as a professional doctor. Was in for a mole screening and she barely looked at my moles before saying they were fine and to comeback every six months and not to go into the sun... Spent my copay for a 5 minute appointment.

This is my first dermatologist visit, and I felt genuinely welcomed. The secretary is polite and seemed to know every patient by name. Dr Hellman was honest, patient, and very informative, taking the time to hear my concerns and answer myquestions. We talked through my process and discussed my best options. The nurse was also informative, and nice. The whole place is a well oiled machine, and I will be going back.

Had such a pleasant experience with everyone I encountered here. I did wait a while as a few patients before me came in late so they were backed up, but I didn’t mind as they were very apologetic, I wasn’t ina rush and it was the end of the day anyway. Dr. Hellman’s bedside manner was wonderful and she answered my many many questions and took her time. Will absolutely be back in a few weeks for my follow up appointment.

Wonderful dermatologist. You pretty much get in regards to skin care treatment the work you put in to continuing the upkeep. There is no miracle doctor. It's a matter of effort. Dr. Hellman tells you as it is, which I like.

Dr. Hellman was kind and professional, but seemed as if she did not have time for me as a patient. I felt rushed throughout the appointment and did not even get to ask all of the questions I wanted to ask.I would only recommend her if you have a single specific problem that you need a quick fix for, but not if you want to discuss your issues thoroughly and receive advice.

I went to Dr. Hellman for help with my acne. Her secretary and nurses are lovely. Dr. Hellman wasn't the warmest person but I don't really care if my doctors are personable or not. She prescribed me a cream to helpwith my acne, which didn't do anything. Then she insulted my tattoos and suggested tattoo removal! If you're looking for a cosmetic dermatologist, maybe Dr. Hellman is right for you. If you are suffering with acne, go someplace else.

I went in to get a small growth removed and she had terrible bedside manner. She was quite rude and the entire appointment felt rushed. She responded in a very disapproving tone when I told her I had the growth formore than 6 months but couldn't get it removed because of my demanding work schedule. I usually expect my healthcare practitioner to give me a heads up when they're injecting me with something but she basically tilted me back and injected me with the numbing agent with no warning. I also told her I was still feeling pain as she was removing my growth and she basically told me to quit my whining and seemed annoyed the whole time. I went in and got my growth removed but I will never go to her again for a procedure.

Lovely office. I've never been to an office that has a more professional, kind and accommodating staff. Karen and Rhoda at reception are caring and helpful. They actually educated me about my insurance and were patient with all the questionsI had. I wish every office I went to was like this. Dr. Hellman took her time with me and answered all my questions. She was thorough and offered real solutions, really listened and took my concerns seriously. I finally found a doctor that doesn't think antibiotics are the only solution for acne! She gets amazing results with lasers. My new derm for sure.

Long wait, although I think it was a busy day. Staff is super nice and professional. Dr Hellman was also nice, knowledgable and friendly! I felt comfortable going there and will be back. Only note is I felt my time withher was a bit rushed, not as thorough as it could have been. Again, probably because it was a busy day.

Dr. Hellman was very thorough. As someone with very sensitive skin but loves the outdoors she was sure to check on every mark I questioned. She also helps me with my rosacea. I also use a few of her own products,which she introduced to me to help with the redness on my face. Love it. I have seen her 3 times now and will continue to go back.

Dr Hellman seems very knowledgeable. However, her bedside manner is very quirky and is not for everyone. She made me uncomfortable by making a comment on my medical condition telling me to "count my blessings" because it could have been worse.I think it's inappropriate to say that to a patient. Also, the first time I went to see her, I waited for close to 2 hours. Luckily, it was my day off. On the plus side, her office staff is extremely nice.
