Dr. Ehrlich was extremely knowledgeable and professional. I fully trust her diagnosis, and appreciate her high level ofexpertise. With regards to the wait time, it was absolutely brutal. I waited 40 minutes in the waiting room. I was taken to the exam room, and waited for over an hour to see the doctor. An almost two hour wait to see the doctor is unacceptable. As a result of Dr. Ehrlich's proficiency and great attitude, I will book another appointment. I just hope that this kind of wait time was a glitch in the matrix, and not the way the office runs every day.

Dr. Ehrlich is what every doctor should be. Sadly most aren't. She is gracious, caring, energetic, proactive, smart, extremelyknowledgeable, empathetic, and really nice-- all with a professionalism that makes you feel very confident in her skills.. I was soooo impressed and am really happy to find her.

She was amazing on all levels. She was quick to diagnose a hair loss problem as well as additional skin issues. She was professional, thorough and reassuring. And she quickly developed a treatment plan and gave me samples to get started.Her pricing is very reasonable too. This Dr is certainly was worth the wait!! Looking forward to seeing results!!!

Dr. Ehrlich doesn't cover cosmetics if you don't want to. She is knowledgable in both cosmetic and non cosmetic dermatology. She will work with you on what your best options are and what treats you best.

I had to wait to be called back for at least 30 mins past my scheduled appt Time, Then I waited another 15-25mins in a very cold exam room to see the doctor. However, the wait was so worth it. Shetook her time with me, answered all my questions and asked if there was anything else she could do for me....loved dr Ehrlich....Another downside , but I do not believe it was her fault, the medications she prescribed were not covered by my insurance plan.... With that said,I left with enough samples to see if the mess would work and then see if I want to pay full price for the prescriptions given

I was a new patient referred to her by a friend of mine. The entire visit was smooth and the team was very efficient. Michelle answered all of my questions, explained everything thoroughly, and asked me if there was anything elsethat I wanted to ask her about. She was very friendly and open which made the visit that much better. I am happy that I found her.

I am too new to give fair feed back so my "maybe" response is based on my treatment has not yet started. I was comfortable with Dr. Ehrlich interaction with me...even if she's a bit rapid. I had been warned aboutthe very long waits to be seen. Staff told me when I make appt that it was ok if I called ahead asking if doctor was running on time/late. Was told ten minutes behind. Intake nurse came into room within 15 minutes. That followed by staff person coming in to apologize for the long wait. It was another 30+ minutes after that before doctor came in. I have scheduled follow up appointments and hope waits are shorter or that maybe the office would call patients when when there significant delays. I chose Dr. Ehrlich because she is close to my home, her mailings and credentials noted on websites.

She knew exactly what my problem was when she looked at it. Even told me there's a low chance of skin cancer (less than 1%), but let's do the 1st treatment and evaluate it after a month.

I really like the Doctor, she's knowledgeable and friendly. Her office were really hectic though. There computer system were down, so the wait time was long and not everything was put together. I felt rushed and didn't get all the information on the Meds or products that I need.

Dr. Ehrlich is the best dermatologist I have been to. Her co worker, Sunshine, was amazing as well. They dealt with all my insurance needs and I was seen by the doctor with in 15 minutes of arriving. The whole staffwas lovely and I honestly didn't feel one thing during any procedure. I'm actually looking forward to my next visit there and I'm not one to look forward to dr appointments :)

Had an appointment today and was kept waiting over 80 minutes after they numbed me. I was getting ready to leave, but they had already numbed me. Even more amazing, was no apology from the doctor for the wait. She is friendly, but today's wait was unacceptable.

She had some very exciting ideas that I have wanted to hear for years about my acne scars. She is very knowledgeable and friendly. The office was somewhat unappealing although it was very hospitable with a nespresso type machine, lollipop andmagazines. I wish that I could use the zoo doc to book my appointments there but they do not use it fully. I will need to work out many hours of appointments through discussion unfortunately and during their work hours.

I really liked the doctor and I believe she is competent. The wait time was so long because of ZocDoc. I made the appointment a month in advance. I tried to give my insurance information over the phone. No communication betweenZocDoc and the office. I like the doctor/don't like ZocDoc.
