best dermatologist

I have been seeing doctor luftman for over 15 years and feel that she is the best dermatologist I have ever seen. As a teenager I had severe eczema. I had seen many different dermatologists who were unable to help me, finally my mother found doctor luftman. I would see the doctor every few months. She was always very concerned for my wellbeing as well as my skin disease. I feel that because of her treatment and her support I was less self conscious than I might have been without her care. She was always on top of the latest treatments and when ever I had a flair she would make sure that I would be seen right away.Now as an adult my eczema is mostly cleared, except for the occasional climate related flair.About 6 months ago however I developed extreme hair loss. I went to my family practice doctor who was unsure how to treat this problem. I then went to doctor luftman , who asked me about any medical issues I may have had. I explained that I have recently felt incredibly tired. She recommended that I have my thyroid checked and found out that my hair loss is actually due to a low thyroid. I went back to my family doctor and have been receiving thyroid medications and my hair loss is now stopped and I am growing new hair.I am so grateful for this doctors care and will continue to recommend her to anyone who asks for the best dermatologist.

WARM AND CARING DR

I Was referred to Dr. Luftman over 10 years ago and found he to always be caring and incredably professional. If you have an emergency the office is always great about getting you in to see her even if its after hours its comforting to know she is available, I wouldnt hesitate to refer her to friends and family which I have and they are still patients, she is also one of the few derms that take my insurance. When I made my first appt for a mole exam she did a full exam and even found some pre-cancerous spots that I didnt even know I had. I am so pleased that she is my dermatologist, and appreciate her warm and caring nature.

very helpful

I recently saw Dr.Luftman for the first time on the recommendation of a friend.I initially saw her for a full skin exam and had her check my moles as well as skin care. It was definitly the most complete skin exam I ever had! She also was very helpful in simplifing my skin care routine. Previous Derms have tried to push alot of creams on me....but Dr. Luftman told me I only needed a cleanser , sunblock and a prescription cream for my occational breakouts.I was very satisified after the first visit...and partcularly liked how helpful her entire staff was. But it was what happened on my next visit that really impressed me. I was stupid enough to pop a pimple on my face and the next day developed extream facial redness and swelling. I called Dr. Luftman's office in the morning and they immediatly fit me in to see her.She told me that I developed an infected abcess....she reassured me that all would be ok. She then drained the abcess and cultured it , put me on antibiotics. The next day she personally called me to see if I was ok, and then fit me in again at the end of the week to make sure I was better. It was this personal touch to feel that this doctor really did care that makes me want to write this!!

a happy patient for 10 years

I will be happy to recommend Dr. Luftman to anyone looking for a dermatologist.My experience with Dr. Luftman and her office staff has been consistently professional, caring and interested in me as both a patient and an individual.I have been a patient in this practice for over 10 years. At one point due to an insurance change I had to see another dermatologist, but I immediatly returned to Dr. Luftmans office. Over the years I have recieved both cosmetic and medical care and have always been satisfied and impressed by her knowlege and compassionate care. My children have also "grown up" with Dr. Luftman. She has taken care of them as young teens with acne, and now as adults, my children still go for their annual mole checks. I can say when ever anyone asks me for a recommendation for a dermatologist, Dr. Luftman is the first on my list.

Dr. Luftman Burned My Face

by not using the proper laser or level of laser for a very simple removel of broken blood vessels. I have deep grooves, scarring, loss of tissue, and small holes in my face due to her negligence. She didn't say a word, or respond to any inquiries about what she did. I reported her to the medical board, but she is stil practicing. She should not have a license. I did not pay her and she did not ask for the money b/c she knows what she did. She is so lacking in integriy and honesty. Karma.
