excellent dermatologist; have referred many patients to him
Worst bed side manner I have seen in a long time. I felt more like a bother than a patient. Wait time was horrible before the appointment and during the appointment.
Easy to get an appointment. However I am left waiting for a long time before seeing the doctor for 5 minutes. The practice seems to be expanding too fast and not focusing on providing good patient care. Also not sure why my surgical cut was not fixed on the same day - i had to return the next day to have it fixed. I suspect this is financially driven. Probably safer to go elsewhere.
Getting appt was easy. Receptionist could at least smile or say hello before asking for your insurance card and form of ID. MA/RN and PA were very nice and knowledgeable. Dr . Shurman has an aloof demeanor but was pleasant enough, answered questions and explained diagnosis.
After sitting in a cold room for 45 minutes, Dr. Shurman walked in, looked at the spot on my ankle, told me it wasn't cancer and told me to come back for another appointment. REALLY? Won't EVER go back to him!!
Dr. Shurman was dismissive, rude, and disinterested in my condition. He flatly stated that there is no cure for rosacea, but offered a prescription for a new (and very expensive) cream. The cream worked, but I know that there are other techniques to manage and reduce the progression. I canceled my follow up, and am seeking a second appointment. If you want a doctor who cares, go to someone else.
Office was extremely dirty. Looking for a new doctor
Dr Shurman helped me with an issue that no other dermatologist was able to help me with . He was very positive and compassionate and helped me feel Comfortable . I'm so glad he opened an office near me and its a very pretty office too.
Shurman had left Lawlors office and took staff with him. No explanation of why he does something to your skin. Place is always dirty, not too proffessional. So sad...I really believe Shurman and his staff has potential to be one of the best. Will see....What is happening to the generations.
Dr. Shurman wasn't the least bit interested in my skin issues. He was rushed and left the room quickly without saying "goodbye" or "I hope your situation improves"..nothing. I wasn't sure if he had permantley left or what? No, I would certainly NOT recommend him to anybody. The rest of the staff there were A (the nurses and the physician's assistant were terrific!!) I'm hoping he had a bad day but after reading other reviews (post appointment - my mistake) I think this is how he operates. Will not see him again- ever!
I had a small spot on my chest. This "doctor" told me i needed the Mohs procedure on my chest to remove the cancer. aftrer he did surgery, i had to return the next day to have the stitching done! i needed to take another day off work! i asked why he coundt stitch it when he removed the cancer spot, and the "doctor" said it was better for me. I don't understand.
Dr. Shurman is fabulous. His staff is warm and friendly. He took the time to listen to my issues, and was the first doctor to be able to help me. Thank you Dr. Shurman!
Horrible terrible. He cut me and then sent me home with an open wound. Made me return the next day to fix. Sweet lordie Jesus
I felt so positive about Dr. Shurman at my first appointment. But on the next visit I was rushed, cut off from speaking, and felt unimportant. I also felt bad for the nurse in the room. He was short and irritated with her inability to manage the computer process. He is great with skin, not so great with people.
Staff is great. Can get them on the phone and Dr. shurman always gets back to you immediately. He puts you at ease and makes you comfortable and a great at diagnosing. He can tell when you are nervous and always takes control and puts you at ease
very direct and thorough. caring with good follow up. would recommend him.
Excellent. He really took his time listened to me and explained everything very clearly
Dr. Shurman operated on me twice. On both occassions, the doctor and his staff were professional, caring, timely, and did a great overall job. I did not have to wait long to see the doctor. The doctor took the time to describe the problem, the procedure and my options for the surgery. My incisions healed nicely with minimal scarring. I recommend this doctor.
Unfortunately, this doctor is one of the few (if not the only) dermatologists seeing new patients in my area. I scheduled and appointment for treatment of adult acne. After over a 45 minute wait, the doctor spent less than 5 minutes with me. During that time I tried to explain my condition, but he constantly interrupted, and at one point simply ignored me and started talking to the nurse. He left the exam room after 4 minutes! I was confused and frustrated and had to ask the nurse to explain what he prescribed as a treatment. My recommendation is to search for another dermatologist and avoid the problems and disappointment I had with Daniel Shurman.

Dr. Shurman has been very good to me, but his bedside manner are poor. He need needs to spend more time with a patient, he seems to rush you. Other wise he is nice. His staff members are very friendly and helpful.
After seeing 2 other dermatolgists in the area Dr. Shurman's staff was warm and knowlegdeble. Dr. Shurman was on time, thorough, had a great personality, and above all really took his time and cared about my issues. After one visit with Dr. Shurman my skin issues were completely resolved
Dr Shurman treated a condition for me that nobody has been able to diagnose. He did it with such ease and comfort and helped me achieve a successful treatment while making me feel less scared. I appreciate his knowledge and his bedside manner.
I liked Dr. Shurman alot, he was thorough and listened to my concerns. I did not feel as i was rushed through my appointment. I'm certainly happy i was referred to him.
I am so happy that a young, intelligent dermatologist has come to the Reading area. Dr. Shurman returns all my calls that day and always knows about me and my condition like I'm the only patient he has. I highly recommend him. Thanks Dr. Shurmamn
I had a lot of scarring from a skin condition and was very embarrassed and insecure about it. Dr. Shurman helped to treat it and made me feel more positive and secure about myself and that I wasn't the only one.
