Dermatology reviews in Northdale

    Forman, Dr. Seth B
    Great doctor and staff. Easy to schedule. Prompt. Don't keep you waiting. Office has all the latest treatment options. Nice waiting room. 

    Dr. Forman is a young man and has a fine and caring manner about him. He really cares for his patients. Been practicing around ten years. He takes the time to talk with his patients. Never feel like you are in an assembly line like some other offices.

    The reception area is clean, neat and modern. The receptionist was friendly. I arrived at the office 10 minutes before my appointment so I could fill out the paperwork. I was the only person in the waiting room. I handed the paperwork to the receptionist a minute before my appointment time. I did not get to the see the doctor until 30 minutes after my appointment time. The information I provided in the initial paperwork was asked for again when the nurse brought me into the examination room and again when the doctor came into the examination room. The first thing I noticed about the doctor was that he seems to have some kind of skin condition on his face, which is not very encouraging for a dermatologist. The doctor brought the nurse with him into the examination room. Since I was sitting there in my underwear and a gown, I would have thought he would have asked if this was alright. He basically took the gown off me when he started the exam, so I was standing there in my underwear the entire time. When he was finished with the exam, the nurse opened the door to leave while I was still standing there in my underwear. Since it appeared I was not going to get any privacy, I started to get dressed as fast as possible. The doctor gave me a prescription for the issues with my face, but said he didn't see any moles that looked out of the ordinary (I hope my general practitioner was wrong). I was directed to head to the front of the office to checkout. The checkout area consists of three people, each sitting behind a computer monitor at a partitioned work space. I just sat down at one of the stations since I didn't know what I was supposed to do. When I sat down, I couldn't see the checkout person since the monitor was completely blocking her face. I have never come across such an impersonal, poorly designed set up like this at a doctor's office. My interaction with the checkout person was limited to reaching over the monitor to give her my credit card and her reaching over to hand me the receipt.

    When I got home, I researched the prescription and found it didn't seem like the proper treatment based on my symptoms. He neglected to tell me other things I should do in conjunction with the prescription (which are outlined in the directions, but require me to purchase additional items). I'm going to give it a try, but I have little confidence based on my office experience. I'll update this review if it works as intended.

    Spencer, Dr. James M.
    As usual, I had to wait but a small amount of time to see the doctor. His review of the condition of my skin was thorough. He listened well and was quite cordial. This is a very well managed office, with friendly and efficient staff.

    Countryside Dermatology & Laser
    Staff and assistant very nice and prompt seeing me. Dr Walek was meticulous, careful and focused while doing the surgery, explained what I could expect before, during and after the procedure. I had a great result with very little noticeable scar to date--getting less every week!  His medical assistant removed the stitches a week later and Dr Walek was available for me to talk with had I wanted to do that. I am very pleased.

    Smith, Dr. Kimberly
    Great! Physician was prompt in seeing me, took her time to do the exam and the procedure and discussed a couple of questions I had concerning skin care, providing samples for me to try.
    Availability has been variable during the years I have had under her care. If the reason for your appointment request is of an urgent nature, the staff will get you in fairly quickly, but if it is more of a routine you may be waiting awhile.

    The doctor i use is very professional, and overall a good communicator.  The issue i have is that YOU have to call them if you want the results of your biopsy.  Their policy is that they will call you if biopsy results are positive and require action, but if not, they wont call you.  Their motto is no news is good news.  I had a previous dermatologist who used to send me a brief personal note after each biopsy and explain the results.  It was a wonderful personal touch.  Maybe i was spoiled by my previous doctor in another state, but it is certainly nerve racking after a biopsy and hearing nothing for a week. Then two. Then having to call to make sure all is clear.  I have had positive results come back from recent biopsies and sometimes they called in a week, sometimes two, sometimes three.  So it is a little like roulette.  But this is of course my opinion, and my view of my experience.

    Palm Harbor Dermatology
    Dr Arrington was very cordial, and performed a thorough exam. She recommended that a few moles be removed and sent out for pathological review. A few of the moles required stitches which were removed in a followup visit. I've very happy with the results as well as the entire process.

    Norman, Dr. Robert A.
    Had to schedule my appointment a month ahead.  When the appointment day arrived, I had to sit an hour and half past the scheduled time to get to see the doctor.  Only, I didn't get to see Dr. Norman - another physician saw me.  She took a quick look at the problem, gave me a prescription for a cream, and said the problem will be gone in two weeks.  The problem never went away.  I went to another dermatologist who correctly diagnosed the problem and remedied the blister issue.

    Forman, Dr. Seth B
    Everyone at the office is very nice. We were greated with a hello and a smile. We did not have to wait long before being called back. We did not see Dr. Forman, but did see Marla Schenck. What a joy. Very nice and friendly. She was very thorough with her exam. Would recommend Dr. Forman's office and Marla to others.

    Forman, Dr. Seth B
    My first good impression with Forman Dermatology wasn't actually with Dr. Forman. I interacted with three staff members before I had my check up; and on each occasion the staff member was friendly and helpful. I hadn't been to a dermatologist in a few years, and as a native Floridian in my early 30's I figured it was time I found a new physician for a yearly screening. I had heard good things about Dr. Forman from acquaintances and he has great reviews on Angie's List, so I figured I'd see for myself. I called figuring it would be at least a month before I could get in the office, but was pleasantly surprised when I able to get in the following week as a new patient!
    My appointment was at 8:30 AM on Wednesday morning and there were four other people in the waiting room before I was finished with my patient information paperwork. It took me about 7 minutes fill everything out and before I could open my Kindle I was being called back to the examining room. The PA who took my patient history had a warm personality, which made it a lot more comfortable for me to start peeling my clothes back, down and around as I showed her my moles and freckles. She noted everything on a tablet, which I was happy about...notes that don't have to be deciphered because of illegible writing are a hallmark of quality patient care. After she completed her questions and answered mine, she pulled out the always awful hospital gown and told me to take off everything but my panties. Now I've been in a bikini almost half my life, but when a highly trained physician is (slowly and carefully) examining every inch of your body, it can be a little awkward. It can be A LOT awkward actually, so I'm not exactly shot out for the experience.
    To my relief, this was a best case scenario. Dr. Forman entered the room with a genuine smile, you know...where your eyes crinkle a little, shook my hand and began talking about my patient history. Once we had gone over my description of UV exposure and the evidence it's left on my skin, the physical exam began. If I hadn't had to stand up I probably wouldn't have noticed it; he kept all but the area he was examining draped while he mapped my marks. Meanwhile, medical banter developed into a conversation about the recent holidays, which kept me distracted until the exam was complete. Instead of passing me off to his PA, Dr. Forman asked if there was anything else I wanted to address while I was there....which of course I did. He took another look at my face and after a little more Q and A he prescribed me a retinoid and antibiotic cream for my period-induced breakout. The PA came back in with printed directions for each script (the scripts had already been sent electronically to my pharmacy of choice) and went over them with me so I wouldn't chemically burn my face off. Breakouts are bad, but breakouts with raw, peeling skin is a reason to become a shut-in; so I was thankful for the tutorial. I settled up with billing, scheduled next year's screening and was out the door in an hour!
    It's been two weeks since my appointment and my skin hasn't looked this good since I was 22! It's such an improvement that I have stopped painting my face to fake good skin! All I put on my face is: moisturizer, sunscreen, translucent shine control powder, and some Diorshow mascara...I'll add under eye concealer if I don't get enough sleep. Now, I had been wearing tinted BB cream, concealer, powder and blush to fake a good complexion. I am one happy new patient!
