Dermatology reviews in Trenton

    Yardley Dermatology Associates
    .Even though I was a first-time patient, I was able to get an appt the following week when I called. I was told I would need to make another appt (a longer wait) in order to have a full skin cancer screening. This was fine with me, as I was only concerned about one mole. I saw a PA who was very friendly and competent. She took the time to answer all of my questions. I will definitely use them as my dermatology providers.

    Kessel, Dr. Daniel S.
    He came highly recommended. He's very down to earth and very friendly. He always tries to find some common ground with you. The people behind the desk are very nice. The waiting room was a little crowded. Once you get in to see him, you see why so many people want to see him. He has good rapport with his patients and things like that.

    My appointment was 2:45 pm and I did not get in to see the Doctor until 4:15 pm. I feel as though he was very rushed as he knew he was behind schedule and I barely had five minutes of his time. The office was packed with people as there were not enough seats for everyone. Why Doctors double book their patients is beyond me. I've been going to this office for many years, but I doubt that I will return in the future.

    Hubert, Dr. Steven L.
    First, Dr. Hubert's nurse came in and looked at me and immediately diagnosed the problem. It turned out her diagnosis was correct when Dr. Hubert came in. She said I had dermatitis, probably an allergic reaction to the Neosporin that my previous internist's nurse practitioner had told me to use for SIX WEEKS. I had called my internist many times, gone in twice, and my cut wouldn't heal, so I was becoming more and more concerned that perhaps I was developing MRSA or something else. In general, I was worried because over all that time, the infection was 1) not healing, and 2) turning into something more, which was an allergic reaction to the Nesporin (but it was Dr. Hubert who put his finger on it immediately and prescribed something completely different, a steroid cream in addition to another cream that stopped the itching). I had gone in there worried and frustrated from previous visits with an incompetent internist and dermatologist, so I was getting more and more desperate as I was worried from what (at first, the internist's nurse practitioner) had told me: that I had impetigo, which is contagious. As a result, I missed going to Thanksgiving dinner. Here it was 6-8 weeks later, I STILL had the infection, and Dr. Hubert and his nurse simply looked at my hand and arm in less than ONE MINUTE and they both diagnosed my problem CORRECTLY. He fixed me in just a few mins. in addition he answered many other questions I had about my psoriasis. PLUS he was KIND, NICE and PATIENT! Loved him and will DEFinitely go back.

    HORRIBLY!! First of all, at first I thought "How wonderful, they fit me in on the day after Thanksgiving when I couldn't find any Dr. OPEN, much less one who would see me." I know why now: he's desperate for patients! His receptionist got me in and upon my arrival (I WAS ON TIME) told me to fill out paper work that I immed. saw would take a long time to fill out. I asked her if I could finish AFTER the appt. so as not to hold the Dr. up and she told me "No, it's fine, fill it out first." I asked this at least 3 times. I hope you're all listening because I'm telling the truth. What a horrific experience. After a half-hour of paperwork and the NEXT patient coming in, the Dr. came out and proceeded to SCREAM at me, saying, "THIS IS AN EMERGENCY, IS IT NOT? I've been waiting for you for 45 MINUTES!" I was FLABBERGASTED that 1) he was screaming at me and 2) he was screaming at me in FRONT of this other patient w/ his young child AND the receptionist! I defended myself saying that the recept. had TOLD me to fill all this out and that I'd come on time, etc., etc., and he said he was going to take this next patient (who was AFTER me) FIRST. If I didn't have this horrible itchy rash and infected cut I would have walked out right then and there. So I said to the receptionist I could not BELIEVE how he had just treated me, how unprofessional he'd been, and how he had no RIGHT to talk to me in that manner (for ANY reason!). I told her I was going to let him know how I felt, and I know she went back to tell him; she apologized a few times but it did not matter at that point. I was highly upset and angry. When Dr. Mandel finished with the patient who came in a half hour after ME, he came out to get me and started to apologize profusely to me. I cut him off saying I didn't care WHO he was, whether he was a doctor or anyone else, that he had no right to speak to me in that manner, and the fact that he'd done it in front of other people made it that much worse. PLUS the fact that I was merely following THEIR instructions and they SHOULD have told me to come in earlier if they wanted me to fill out SO much information! Again, he apologized and after about 15 minutes, we resolved the issues. He proceeded to take a culture of my cut for MRSA (my request), was very gentle, seemed very intelligent (but I thought for sure had extreme personality and professional issues) and also seemed to know his "stuff." Turns out I found out a few weeks later that he's an anesthesiologist and another Dr. told he me shouldn't even be practicing dermatology! I DID see his degrees, however, so I cannot speak to that. He applied a cream (forget the name now) that immediately calmed the itching and prescribed a jar of the generic for me. He kept saying how he saves his patients money, and also prescribed a cream from a lab in Hopewell, NJ that literally MAKES the cream for my psoriasis. He said it would be inexpensive and it turned out (when I called the drugstore) that an 8-ounce tube was going to cost me well over $60 if not more. (I forget the exact price now.) When I saw him during my second appt. I mentioned this and he seemed almost insulted, saying, "Well, you know, I called that IN for you, etc., etc., so I HOPE you plan to pick it UP." I responded that I had called the drugstore FIRST, telling them NOT to fill it until they could give me a PRICE for it because money is an issue for me. The 2 creams he prescribed for my cut and what HE SAID WAS IMPETIGO (and I thought it was also, from reading on the Internet -- but it turns out, it WAS NOT THAT AT ALL, BECAUSE A WEEK or 2 LATER I WENT TO ANOTHER SKIN DR., who said it ABSOLUTELY WAS NOT IMPETIGO. I HAD AN ALLERGY TO NEOSPORIN and he kept me on the one itch cream and gave me a steroid cream to use VERY sparingly. So what do you know, he COMPLETELY MISDIAGNOSED ME!! After putting me through that horrible upset, and let me tell you, it took a LOT for me to put HIM in HIS place. I don't care if he's a doctor or NOT; NO one should SCREAM (and he DID SCREAM; his receptionist was totally embarrassed) at a patient! It was SO unprofessional!! Turns out, my MRSA culture was negative, thank goodness, and I did see him a second time because he told me to come back to see how I was doing. He totally rushed me through THAT visit; he did not want to give me any time at ALL. I had some questions and he literally rushed me right through. I left THAT appt. thinking I'd never go back, but things got worse even after THAT. I called him a few weeks later to ask him if he'd refer me to an internist as I really had to find a new one; mine was completely incompetent. He referred me to a new Dr. that I'd never heard of in his building and then when I called back a second time, telling the receptionist that he and I had had a whole conversation about this during my first visit; that I'd asked him, "Can't you refer me to SOMEONE GOOD? I have so much trouble finding a GOOD DR. on my HMO." And he responded even THEN that he DID know some good doctors but well, they were either full or blah blah blah ........ I asked him if he could make a CALL for me and ask if one of the doctors he knew might make an exception and take in a new patient, etc., and he said HE WOULD THINK ABOUT IT. THAT is why I called him back a few weeks later, and THAT was when he completely put me OFF, gave me these names that were basically doctors just starting out in practice (no thank you!), and as I wrote just above, he finally gave me the name of another DERMATOLOGIST!! So obviously he didn't want to see me any further ( and obviously it was quite MUTUAL at that point!) I tried calling him (I believe) a third time but he wouldn't even return my call. Funny, that; the day after my very FIRST appt., he actually called me at home to see how I was feeling. I was so impressed with that at first. He sort of bragged saying how he does this with ALL his patients. What a different story it was NOW; he wouldn't even RETURN MY CALL. In the long run, he did me a HUGE FAVOR. By the way? I HAVE to add this: During my first visit, he continually complained to me, to the point of WHINING, how he couldn't get his practice up and running because all the other dermatological practices had the "fancy doctors" who treated the really wealthy patients in Princeton and West Windsor (I lived in Princeton for 25 years so I know), doing face lifts and botox and whatever other expensive treatments wealthy patients go to dermatologists for. And that's their prerogative, both patients AND doctors, seems to me. I spent a LOT of my appt. time giving HIM suggestions of how to advertise on the web, or in other ways, to build his practice, and he kept complaining about how that costs MONEY and how he doesn't HAVE it. Again, I found this highly unprofessional. A doctor complaining to his patient about not having money to advertise or build up his practice? I see his age is 56; his credentials were very impressive, so after I saw how intelligent he was, I was wondering what the problem was. But now I guess I have figured all that out... I realize this is a highly negative review, but he treated me horrifically for NO reason and he treated me badly in many ways, too. I gave the dermatologist I saw a few weeks later extremely high grades and reviews, so I give what I feel is deserved. Bottom line is this: NO doctor has ANY right to treat ANY patient badly, not for ANY REASON.

    I've been seeing Dr. Scott Schafrank every 6 months for the last 12 years. I'm very happy with his professionalism. Over the years, he has found numerous skin cancers which he has removed himself. On two occasions he referred me to specialists for more complicated procedures. I would highly recommend Dr. Schafrank's dermatological services.

    Kessel, Dr. Daniel S.
    Overall, I would rate my experience: EXCELLENT. This was my first appointment with Dr. Kessel and I would see him again. It took about a month to get an appointment because he is the only dermatologist in my area and the reason for my visit was not an emergecy or life threatening. When I arrived for the appointment, his office staff was friendly and efficient. My wait was reasonable. He spent alot of time taking a medical history and listening to my concerns. I didn't feel rushed. He had a nice bedside manner and was extremely professional. I will recommend him to family and friends.

    Kessel, Dr. Daniel S.
    They are good and competent. They know what they are doing. It is very hard to get an appointment with him. You have to wait long if you want to see him and that is why I usually go and see a nurse practitioner. He has been voted many times as the best dermatologist of Mercer County and that is probably why you cannot get an appointment with him.

    Kessel, Dr. Daniel S.
    I think that he is very thorough. I am very fair and I had a lot of sun burns when I was a child and now everything is coming out and he is very thorough. He has been voted the best doctor in most of the county for I don���t know how many years. I must say that he is the best dermatologist. He is not easy to get an appointment with, but once I am in he will take time with me. If a doctor is good, it is hard to get an appointment with them.
