I waited about 30+ minutes to see him for less than 10 minutes. He very briefly looked me over-- I don't feel that he really took the time to get to know / understand my concerns and I do not think I got the service I was hoping for

Excellent care from Dr. Amster. He is very straightforward and incredibly professional. His clinical staff leave a lot to be desired, especially in the area of communication. Their manner of speaking to patients was less than ideal and thenew patient paperwork was a nightmare to fill out. Dr. Amster's care outweighs these drawbacks, but it would be nice to see more professionalism and thoughtfullness in the administrative staff.

He is a superb Dermatologist. My issue was related to hair loss and he suggested me few medicines. I am hoping that will help me regain strength. Visit was smooth and quick. Support staff is really good.

Dr. Amster's office is convenient for me, and online appointment scheduling was convenient. The office visit went smoothly, he reviewed my skin issue, wrote me a few prescriptions and that solved the issue. I have a follow-up appt next month.

Visit was rushed. The medical office is in an old building and did not look clean. There was bloody gauze on the floor and the paper on the chair was not changed. Scary!

Although i waited longer than I am used to (new patient to this office), Dr.Amster had me in and out rather fast. I was a little taken aback by how quick he saw me (felt rushed), but hope his expertise will trump that feeling.
