I've been seeing Dr. Ugel for perhaps 25 years. His office is the most efficient of all those I visit. He sees his job as to diagnose and prescribe, leaving to his nurse-practitioner discussions of how to apply the treatment he has prescribed. So you will not have a long conversation with him--normally he's not in the examining room more than five minutes--but every time my condition has responded to the treatment he has prescribed. I rarely wait more than 5 minutes before being called in by staff, who write my problem down for Ugel to read, which he will do first, before examining me. As he examines he dictates his findings to his nurse-practitioner. I've always been satisfied with his care.
I started going to Dr.Ugelâs new aesthetic nurse, Cissy, for my botox and fillers. She corrected the volume loss in my cheeks with Radiesse, giving a beautiful, even looking results that make me look younger!! I usually go to a local plastic surgeon to have Juvederm put in my lips for a fuller look, since I have a very thin upper lip and a thin lower lip as well. I was a little nervous, but at this point I liked how Cissy did my cheeks so much, I wanted her to do my lips too! Results? They look fantastic! I liked her work better than any of the surgeons I had seen in the past. She created a âcupidâs bowâ and an upper lip border, which I never had before. I am so happy with everything I had done. Thanks, Cissy!!
I have been to see Dr. Ugel once and I don't plan to go back. It takes a lot for me to write a negative review, but my experience was so negative, I feel responsible to warn other patients.First bad sign: the counter in the medical room wasn't clean. Something brown had smeared and been left to dry there. When Dr. Ugel came in with the nurse, he spent less than three minutes looking at my problem. (Full disclosure, since this is relevant - I have common warts. Not a dermatologist's biggest concern. But just because I don't have skin cancer and I don't plan to shell out for expensive cosmetic procedures doesn't mean I don't deserve as much attention as the next patient).Not once did Dr. Ugel make eye contact with me or even ask questions about the history my condition. When it started to look like he was preparing to leave, I scrambled to ask questions I had prepared. Then he literally walked out when I was in the middle of a sentence, leaving me gaping at the nurse. It was completely disrespectful. I will never go back to this doctor and I would urge other prospective patients to keep looking.
I brought my adult brother with a disability to see Dr. Ugel on Monday. He has several things wrong with his skin and scalp and is a very difficult patient to deal with due to his mental and physical limitations. Dr. Ugel was brilliant with him. Kind, patient, understanding, and most importantly smart as a whip. We are going back tomorrow for a follow up because Dr. Ugel was very concerned about the severity of one area on my brother's leg. I am happy to report that it is no longer irritated and that Dr. Ugel's diagnosis and prescription were absolutely correct. Highly recommend. My brother and I are very happy.
