Extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Dr. Waldorf is on the cutting edge of cosmetic dermatology and I trust her recommendations completely.

Dec 17th, 2014

You can't put a price on your medical care at least I can’t. Finding a doctor that I trust and feel safe with is my peace of mind. I love Dr Heidi Waldorf because she’s all that to me and more. She’s truly brilliant and she’s always interested in my total well being. That’s a lot to get these days. Dr Waldorf has been my dermatologist for over 3 ½ years. She’s so knowledgeable and discusses and explains everything openly and honestly--I always have options. She really takes her time with me ( I ask a million questions.) I feel safe with my treatment experience as I know I’m in her skilled and magical hands that work wonders. She’s an artist. I feel rejuvenated when I leave her office. —I look like myself (or as someone said, “Like my younger sister”) but nothing more dramatic than that. Thank goodness. I deplore problems and there's never one. Dr Waldorf gives me clear instructions about what to do ahead of time and she always follows up afterwards to make sure I’m “ok.” It’s like I have a direct line to well care management.

I went to Dr H Waldor for filler for laugh lines and some fine lines around my lip, also a slight lip enhancement. She was very crude, fast and abrupt if questions were asked. She left the room and came back to say that I should do dysport in the forehead b ecause she likes to treat the "whole" face. She Was. Very pushy. Said that she used it(since it was new) and basically pushed it on me even though I wasn't prepared to pay an extra few hundred dollars. She massaged my face so hard putting her hands in my mouth.. It hurt. The next day I was SO swollen! My entire face!. Then a week later it looked like nothing so I went back cuz I wasn't happy. She was lecturing me in a VERY condescending way saying "what did I think, i was going to look like Anjelina Jolie"? The worst experience. I was crying. Also had a suspicious mole she was supposed to do surgery on. And at the last minute said she cudnt do it,and I had to scurry around looking for a surgeon. YOU CAN DO BETTER. GO ELSEWHERE!

Dr Waldorf is one of the most caring doctors and people I have met. There was a wait to see her but once you are in her office she doesn't rush you. I have seen lots of dermatologists - most barely looked and me and didn't explain anything. They made me feel vain and stupid. Instead, Dr Waldorf did a thorough exam, explained things, answered questions and then her nurses went over everything with me again. And no one rushed me to decide about procedures.

Heidi Waldorf is a very sick human being, she is abrupt, rude, uncaring. Why is she a doctor? I walked in with a legitimate problem, and she couldn't have been worse. She blamed me for my condition and when I calmly said, "alright", knowing myself that it was best to just leave her office and seek another dermatologist, she wouldn't allow me to leave! She stopped me and started shouting at me, looking for a fight, for what? She's irrational and scary.

Bedside manner was horrible. Didn't introduce herself when she came into the room, very little eye contact, and turfed off all my questions to the nurse. I felt like I was a "number"...not a patient. I left feeling terrible. I will never go back.

I was really nervous about getting anything cosmetic --- what if I looked too 'done' and everyone could tell or if it looked really unnatural? But Dr Heidi (that's what everyone calls her -- she is very low-key and accessible) put me at ease. She and her nurses spent the time explaining the procedures and when, where and why she'd inject different fillers and botox. I did bruise a little as she warned, but when that cleared, I LOVED IT! No one knows what I have done but I keep getting compliments. Even my husband likes it and he was very against my having any 'work done'. THANK YOU DR HEIDI!!! I will be your patient forever!

Dr. Waldorf is a wonderful dermatologist. I appreciated how she took the time and explained which fillers would work best for me and I am very happy with the result. I also love the friendliness of the staff and how they encourage you to call before your appointment to see how the doctor is running so that you don't have to wait long. Great policy since we all have very busy lives!

Dr Waldorf was wonderful. She identified the cause of my problem, offered different options to treat, took the time to explain them and did the procedure quickly and painlessly.

Seeing this doctor was one of the worst experiences of my life. She is crude, loud, obnoxious, and knows very little about dermatology. Crude, uncaring, very bad doctor.

The $300 fee I paid for my visit bought Dr. Heidi Waldorf MD this review. Dr. Waldorf presented herself as an unhinged, deeply unpleasant, incredibly unprofessional physician. She was immediately rude in an uncalled for way, she was crass and loud in her own office, and she offered no help whatsoever. Dr. Waldorf isn't professional in her manner or approach and she's completely unprofessional and lacking in knowledge in her medical care. I would gladly pay $300 to never have to see her again and that's exactly what happened. This is a terrible doctor.

I have never felt so taken care of than I did by Dr Heidi Waldorf and her staff! I went for a cosmetic consultation and she explained everything from antiaging creams to procedures in a way I could understand. It was the most thorough consult I have ever had. Her nurse reviewed everything with me again before my treatment. My botox and fillers look SO natural! I wont go to anyone else!!!

Dr Waldorf is a fantastic dermatologist who has given me absolutely gorgeous skin again after having an awful bout of adult acne...never thought I'd see my skin clear again! WOW! I rarely get a pimple anymore...she is also fantastic with fillers...Her practice isn't covered by my insurance but she is well worth the extra cost....and time in the waiting prepared for the wait and bring a good book or your blackberry... :0)

Been to Dr. Waldorf twice, once in NY and once in her NJ office. NY nurse/assistants are incredibly rude, hustled me out of the exam room, made me feel like an idiot for asking questions about the list of 6(!) prescriptions and products the doctor had recommended for blemished skin. Got the same shopping list/lecture about products in NJ. Waldorf can barely hide her impatience during a visit and doesn't leave you room for any feedback. You can find equally pedigreed and competent derms who still have some humanity left, and you should.

the most uncaring, unpleasant and unconnected doctor i've been to. couldn't care less about my situation...sent me out to an oncologist who couldn't figure out why i had come...never heard from her again...i could go on....and she was recommended to me by the chairman of the mt.sinai dermatology department..a frightening situation instead of a cosmetic one.

I have never experienced such a rude physician such as Dr. Heidi Waldorf.
