I felt rushed when trying to explain all my issues and was interrupted. The lady checking me in and the lady that checked me out were the nicest ones in the office.

Dr. Aftergut took 1 look at my current medications, which were all to treat Bipolar Type 2, and decided that the symptoms I was reporting must just be a symptom of my psychiatric disorder. I was not examined, looked at, oreven touched. He spent all of 5 minutes in the room with me. I have been Bipolar Type 2 now for almost 10 years and stable on these same medications for over 8 years. I went to Dr. Aftergut because I was suffering and knew something was very wrong but ended up leaving his office crying and ashamed. I wanted to remind Dr. Aftergut that I was also a healthcare professional, licensed through the state and had spoken with him and his staff on several occasions, but did not. I received the treatment that every patient who takes psychiatric medications gets at this office which is unacceptable, because every patient deserves respect!

Dr. Aftergut runs a pretty efficient office. After signing the paperwork I was able to fill out in advance via zocdoc. I waited less than 5 minutes to be called back. Almost as soon as I got into the exam room,he was walking in and got to work. With his trusty assistant by his side they made quick work of checking my skin for any problems. He explained everything in medical terms then gave an idiots version so someone like me could understand. They were quick to perform a simple procedure and I was in and out in less than 30 minutes. My coworkers thought I forgot about my appointment since I was back to work so quickly.

Loved him! I was nervous after all the bad reviews. Yes he's quick and efficient but he knows his stuff! It's not necessary for a doctor to spend 30+min with you for the doctor to be thorough and competent! My sonwill Be back and I'm going to set my own appt too!

The doctor didn't even bother to look at my feet and just listened to what I said. He didn't tell me what was wrong with my skin or anything he just prescribed me a medicine that was very expensive but Ididn't get because I was never told what was wrong with my skin since he didn't even looked at my feet. I used google and found out by myself that I had athlete feet and used a home based method with on shelf items to treat it, used it for few weeks and cost me almost nothing.

I honestly have nothing but good things to say. The appointment process was easy, paperwork minimal, and on top of all that he was on-time. My appointment was a 10:15 and I was talking to him by 10:20. He was quickand efficient. He's also a nice guy, but I can see why others were not so keen on his personality. He didn't make a lot of small talk and cut right to the point - which was great for me. But again, I can see how some people might find that awkward with no "warm-up" or pleasantries, if you will. (It's probably how he stays on time in all honesty) Overall he's a great doctor and very knowledgable in his field. Will definitely be going back to him for annual check-ups.

Dr. Aftergut was very impersonal. I saw him last year for mild persistent acne that was easily treated with a discontinued medication I got from a doctor back home. Aftergut told me that my acne is hormonal and absolutely will notget better unless I go on hormones, and then tried to shame me for not wanting to use the birth control pill. When I told him that I do not want to take hormones because they will amplify the mood swings, depression, anxiety, and BRUTAL breast swelling/tenderness I experience every month, he told me that these side-effects are "mild." When I asked about the teeny, faint little wrinkles forming on my forehead, he told me nothing could be done except get injections. I was only 21! [They've since vanished after using a gel from my GP.] He then told me that I need to start using a very, very fancy skincare regimen that just happens to be sold exclusively at his office. D Magazine says that Dr. Aftergut is one of the best dermatologists in the city, but I left the appointment feeling robbed.
