Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Flashner was excellent. Very to the point and explained everything. Highly recommend.
I have been seeing Dr. Flashner for several years and recommend all my friends who have need of a dermatologist. Dr Flashner has saved my life by discovering melanoma twice in the very early stages and by recommending treatments. I wouldn't go to anyone else. She is so thorough.!!!!
Very good experience
So far she has been excellent. Understood the issue with my sons eczema and right now it looks like his eczema may be clearing. This is years after going to multiple doctors with no success. Keeping my fingers crossed.
This Doctor saved my life. She is thorough and professional!!!
Overall very good visit. Her manner is a bit abrupt which maybe off putting for some, but i never felt as if i wasn't be heard, or my concerns diminished. Be careful when making an appointment through ZocDoc as the office wasn't aware of my appointment until i called the day before.
Dr. Flashner was very thorough. She gave me a great exam and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed and she informed me with everything she was going to do before she did it.
I filled out all the online paperwork for the doctor's office on this site that was supposed to "save time filling out forms" but the receptionist said the paperwork on the site was outdated so i had to do it all over again when i arrived for my appointment. Those forms need to be removed it's misleading & a waste of time
It was a pleasure meeting Dr. Flashner. She provided great service and treatment. I will be back and will refer others to her. So happy to find a quality dermatologist close to home.
