Excellent doctor, very caring and spends a lot of time with my daughter. She is the best dermo we have found for acne and I would highly recommend her.
This was my son's follow up appointment with Dr. Bershad. Both times, we waited more than forty minutes. She was somewhat thorough with her examination the first time, but not this time around. I’m not too sure whether I would take my son back to her next time.
The best doctor I ever meant.
All I can say about Dr. Susan Bershad is that she's the best!! Totally awesome! I wish all doctors would have the same professionalism. ??????
It was our 3rd visit and it gets better each time.
Dr. Bershad is friendly, kind and thorough. As Mount Sinai is a teaching hospital, don't be surprised to be treated by someone under Dr. Bershad's supervision. All the medical staff are pleasant and accommodating.
