Really rushed appointments, but he's been accurate and helpful to my skin condition. Just gives a bad impression when he's practically standing in the doorway, itching to get out to see the next patient.

Had seen him my first skin cancer screening along with Igor Romanov his nurse practitioner. I saw his NP several times after my first screening and was very happy and comfortable with seeing only Igor Romanov. However, he no longer worksthere so I was glad I got good care from Michael Paltiel. He was an attentive listener.

He is very good at what he does. He removed a growth on my skin, with fine precision and accuracy, and I didn't feel any pain during the procedure. The area is healing so well, barely visible after 2 days.
