    Silvers, Dr Kimberly J.
    I went to Dr. Silvers several times. After the first visit I was not sure I would go back again, I felt very rushed and she seemed rather non-communicative but I did wind up going back a few more times and I now have a completely different opinion of her. she was very warm, very informative and listened to all I had to say and explained everything that would be happening with the procedures I would be having. she took her time to make sure I understood and was comfortable with what would be happening, I would not hesitate to recommend her to others. The experience turned out to be a very pleasant surprise.

    I was really disappointed with the amount of time it took before I could get an appointment as a first time client - it took 2 months before they could schedule me!! But once I got in as a patient, I had a wonderful experience. Dr. McAllister was very friendly and asked about my history of eczema. She gave me a thorough full body check for any signs of skin cancer as well as any other patches of eczema. She promptly gave me a prescription and invited me to ask any questions that I might have. I was surprised by how quickly the appointment went but didn't feel as if I were rushed or unwelcome. My eczema cleared very quickly with the steroid cream that she gave me! A couple months later, my eczema returned to another area (my scalp); since I was unable to effectively apply cream to my neck, I called the office to ask if I could get a similar prescription in liquid form. They were very helpful and prompt in their response. I didn't even need to go in for another appointment; they simply called the script into my pharmacy. I would highly recommend her, despite the long initial wait. I will definitely go back to her if I have any other dermatological needs!

    Dr. McAllister and her staff performed a detailed examination. She spotted 5 suspicious moles and ordered biopsies on them. Subsequently, the results revealed that one of the moles was pre-cancerous and could have become melanoma. I was scheduled to have more skin removed and that biopsy showed clear edges. Problem solved.

    Prostate cancer is famous for being slow and mild to the point that many people "treat" it by just keeping an eye on its progress and doing nothing therapeutic. Because my PSA had come up very fast, however, Dr. Husseini advised me that a biopsy would be a good idea. While he assured me that there was no reason to panic, he made it clear that the situation was potentially serious. When the biopsy results came back it was early in the day I was supposed to see him to learn what was up. Husseini and his office staff showed that they understood how anxious people can get waiting for such information, so they called me up and had me come into the office right away to learn the outcome -- which was not good: the biopsy showed not only that there was quite a bit of cancer there, but that it was a relatively aggressive form. I give these details to indicate what kind of situation that Husseini was managing with me --- it was bad news that couldn't be made pleasant or anxiety-free. I was very pleased that he took me (and my wife who is always there as observer and "advocate") through all the details of the biopsy findings, explaining how they are arrived at and what their potential meaning is. When we were done, I wasn't happy with what was happening to me but I was very reassured that I knew everything relevant to the matter. One of the main topics was the treatment options that are available, and he not only explained them but also made arrangements for me to talk to specialists in each of the options. Once I selected my treatment (which was in Rochester), I left Dr. Husseini's direct care. If I have any urology-related problems, I will certainly return to him for treatment.
    I imagine that some patients may not feel that Dr. Husseini's "bedside manner" is friendly or personal. I found that he didn't spend time in "small talk" but used every moment available to convey information and answer my questions. He was clearly well informed of my case at all times and didn't have to read reports while in my presence. And, he anticipated my feelings by providing very clear and understandable information as promptly as possible. For my part, I was reassured that this is a doctor who shares my idea of what the important things are.

    On 2 separate occasions Dr. McAllister's office dropped appointments we had scheduled then treated us in a condescending and intolerant way when we showed up at the scheduled time. When we challenged the office manager on the office's ability to accurately schedule appointments we received a letter from Dr. McAllister, who was on maternity leave at the time, terminating her office's relationship with our entire family.
    It appears that Dr. McAllister's office staff has control over what patients the doctor will see and they seem to favor patients who will not question the competence of the office staff. It is not a question of Dr. McAllisters competence as a physician, rather her competence in overseeing her own practice and her ability to control what appears to us an unprofessional office staff.

    Silvers, Dr Kimberly J.
    She did a good job. She was very knowledgeable with the dealings of the skin. I had been to an allergist who misdiagnosed the rash that I had on my face and when I walked in she exactly knew what it was. She had it diagnosed when I just walked into the hall then she gave me the medicine that I needed and it cleared up and went away. She was spot on.

    The exam was fairly quick, but thorough. Dr. Silver was very courteous and mentioned a couple moles to keep an eye on just in case. This was a positive experience and I will go back periodically to keep tabs on my overall skin health.

    Silvers, Dr Kimberly J.
    The first appointment was with Dr Silvers, who did a quick evaluation of the condition and checked moles, etc. At that time the condition seemed to be in remission, the doctor prescribed an antibiotic with instructions for use. Her manner was straightforward and businesslike, if a bit distant.
    I went back in May as the condition was not clearing up, and saw the PA (Julie) this time. She evaluated the condition and prescribed a couple ointments, with specific instructions for use, with follow-up after two weeks. The treatment seemed to be effective, and she gave instructions as to what to do if there were a recurrence. Her manner is straightforward and businesslike, but she seems more personable than the doctor
    Billing and admin was straightforward, a $20 co-pay to my insurance. Only downside was a 45 minute wait for the third appointment (for which the PA apologized), other appointments were fairly prompt.
    There are only a couple dermatological practices in Ithaca, and the other was not accepting new patients when I called. This one is fine.

    Dr. Silvers removed the wart and told me that she thought it would be tested and come back benign. It came back positive for skin cancer, so I had to return to have a larger portion of the arm removed to prevent spreading. Dr. Silvers was kind, answered all my questions and then took off a little more of my arm. It was a little difficult getting an appointment made before 6 months, but there was no waiting at her office, and the procedure was done very quickly.

    Dr. Horn was professional and prompt. The two moles were removed painlessly, and I was informed of the biopsy results (benign) a few days later. He gave me advice on having my regular internist check my skin for problems, and overall it was a good experience.
