This provider was very insensitive to a young teens acne situation. Instead of providing hope he made the teen feel hopeless. This is not the manner in a professional toward a patient much less a vulnerable one. NEVER AGAIN will thisperson get a penny of my service and you should heed my warning.

I've been to this office twice now and neither time did I enjoy my experience. I thought the first time was a fluke but this was not the case. The wait time ranged from 50 to 75 minutes between when myappointment was scheduled and when I actually first saw Seth. He was a bit arrogant, would check his cell phone when in the room and would frequently interrupt when I had questions. I overall got the sense that he had other things on his mind. I pretty much knew the medicine that worked for me and he just prescribed it, so as a means to an end this office can work. However, for quality dermatological treatment I would advise you to look elsewhere.

I don't like visiting doctors. My time as everyone's time is limited and valuable. I actually enjoyed him as he was in no rush to push me thru and in fact I might have talked as much as he talked. But,it was healthy talk for my needs . Dr. Wilentz is smart, he is warm, he is cool and he directs and educates objectively. Good upscale, clean offices with Ashley as a well balanced and smart assistant. A very good experience.

Dr. Wilentz does not disappoint! After seeing the doctor myself in the past, I decided to bring my infant daughter to see him. I prefer his more thorough bedside manner compared to my daughter's usual dermatologist. Once he took a lookat my daughter's skin, he was able to alleviate my fears that her rash was something fungal and prescribed next steps for me to take. Looking forward to future visits!
