Dermatology reviews in Suffern

    Lieb, Dr. Jocelyn A.
    She takes her time with me and she seems to be listening to what I say. I had a skin cancer screening with her and I thought it was very thorough. She did some other work and I was concerned that it wasn't done completely, so I called and they said just come back and she addressed everything that I was concerned about.

    Cohen, Dr. Robert J.
    Dr. Cohen is very knowledgeable and professional.
    He gave me lots of information on basal cell carcinomas and the further development of this carcinoma
    if operated and if not operated. I chose to have it removed. Dr. Cohen does general dermatology.
    There is another doctor in the same practice who specializes in this surgery.
    I will write a separate review of Dr. Olhoffer who did the surgery.

    Frey, Dr. Fayne L
    It was not a good experience - she's not very good. She is a nice person, if you have very simple needs and don't need a skilled doctor, she is fine. The office was like all offices. I don't remember the punctuality. They told me it would be a certain amount and then they sent me a bill which they weren't supposed to do. I have Medicare which is supposed to pay for everything but it wasn't enough for them. This report is accurate as far as I remember. I don't remember the punctuality or how long I had to wait.

    Philip Strenger MD
    He is very good, he works on schedule which is wonderful. His pricing is very reasonable, he is a present man,and he knows his staff. He did an excellent job on me, one Friday afternoon I could not find a plastic surgeon and I called him up he said come right over and he managed it. So you could to him in an emergency and he could do it. He is a wonderful guy.

    Sutton, Dr. Joseph D.
    I had seen Dr. Sutton for about 2 years. I didn't like his bedside manner, but over time I suppose he warmed up a little, and he was geographically convenient and in my insurance plan. I am fair-skinned with a history of sun exposure and I know that every time I see him he will identify a questionable mole or two, biopsy it. In the past, two results were equivocal and wide excision was recommended; all other times the biopsies were negative. He makes extensive use of well-trained medical assistants and he himself spends very little time with me. On the date in question, a medical assistant did the preliminary skin check, and used a marker to indicate for Dr. Sutton which mole he should focus on. Then Dr. Sutton came in, and he looked at the identified mole on my thigh. It was not very large, uniform in color, but somehow he didn't like it and said it should be biopsied, then left the room. In the past, the procedure was that I would make an appointment in two weeks and then he would do the biopsy, he referred me to a surgeon for the biopsy. This time, as I was getting dressed, a medical assistant came into the room and told me to lie down for the biopsy. I was surprised, but pleased that I wouldn't have to make a second appointment. I lay on the table as she prepped the skin for the biopsy. She told me it would sting a little, and I assumed that was the topical anesthetic. I couldn't see what she was doing because she was positioned between my head and my thigh, facing away from me, and I could only see her back and shoulders. No one else was in the room. Suddenly she was dabbing at my skin with a dry dressing and telling me, "All done." In other words, the medical assistant performed the biopsy. I was not happy with this, but I didn't say anything at the time; I was too shocked. The next week I received a phone call from the an office person or medical assistant, not sure who, who told me that there was no cancer, but I should come back in three months because the doctor wanted to see if any pigment came back. I said no thank you, I wouldn't be coming back. I am a registered nurse and I am capable of recognizing if pigment has come back. A few days later I received a polite letter from Dr. Sutton, with a concerned tone, along with a copy of the biopsy report. He urged me to follow up and offered to help me if I wanted. I believe that the scope of practice of a medical assistant is vague, and depends on how he/she has been trained. I do not know if any codes were violated; it is just my preference that only a doctor perform surgery on my body. Since a dermatologist correctly bills for a biopsy as a surgical procedure, I want a licensed qualified professional to do any biopsies I require. I am writing this report in case someone else has this same preference, in which case I advise that person to look for a dermatologist who does his/her own biopsies.

    Epstein, Dr. Wendy A.
    I went to Sutton Dermatology to see Dr Epstein on a friends recommendation. She did a "full" body check, even between the toes. However, she asked if anyone at home could check my scalp and skipped over it completely. She found one thing on my back that she wanted to remove, but didn't think it was bad so I could schedule the removal at my leisure. I scheduled the next appointment on April 1st (about 3 weeks later). Her assistant prepped the area by numbing it, and she came in and removed a small freckle on my back and sent it away. A week or so later I hadn't heard back from the office so I called and the spot was fine. I started getting phone calls from a lab and bills from a lab shortly after. I ignored them all until one day I realized this was for the testing of my freckle. I promptly paid them, but I wish someone at the Dr.'s office had mentioned that I was getting billed separately for the testing vs. through my insurance or from their office.

    Epstein, Dr. Wendy A.
    Dr. Epstein is experienced and comprehensive. She explains everything. She does her job and gets on with her day. She doesn't have a lot of availability, so that's a bit of a problem. She is punctual and she has a good bedside manner. I think her treatment is very effective.

    Sutton, Dr. Joseph
    He is quite good. He is the head of dermatology for a local hospital. He is very thorough and highly knowledgeable. He has got an active practice. He is highly respected physician. It is pretty good to get an appointment with him. His office is comfortable and accessible. He does not make you wait for a long time. His staff is friendly. The nurses are supportive.

    Sutton, Dr. Joseph D.
    Dr. Sutton is very knowledgable in his field, and after being checked and marked by his Nurse Practitioner, he checked me head to toe, back to front, and I was completely satisfied.
