We had a very pleasant professional experience after months of going to several specialists I'm happy to say that our daughter has a diagnosis and waiting on approval for orthotics. I arrived early to complete paperwork and we waited a little longer than 30 minutes but that's because he gives EVERY patient the same level of professionalism and takes his time to answer questions. We are very happy with the choice we made

I've been seeing Dr. Dershowitz for a few months. I think that he is an excellent doctor. He explains everything to you, and answers all of your questions. I never feel rushed. The most impressive aspect of my visits with Dr. Dershowitz is that when he gives me shots in my feet, it doesn't hurt. My first visit, I wouldn't let him give me shots, because I was still traumatized from past experiences. Now, I don't hesitate to let him stick me. He's really good at what he does. I can't say enough good things about him. I also want to mention the office staff. They are polite and professional. The two ladies in the front are very personable and accommodating. You truly feel like they care about you.

Although I filled out the new patient forms on ZocDoc, some of the papers were not available at the doctor's office and I had to fill them out again.

Front office is nice but their policies are to collect copay and deductible upfront. That's a lot of cash out of pocket.

Dr Dershowitz was great! He asked questions, listened to what I had to say, went over and explained my x-rays to me, was able to diagnose my problem immediately, explained my various options and soothed my fears about getting shots in my foot. I'm so glad I picked him for my doctor and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great podiatrist!

I was the first patient to be seen in Dr Dershowitz's new office suite and am also a returning patient (having been discharged 4 years ago). There were glitches, as there are in any move/new situation, but the doctor was up to speed on my health history and the staff was pleasant and helpful.
