Not very flexible when making an appointment. No loyalty to their patients and don't seem to care.

Kliggy's a Good Guy

He always takes the time to be thorough in his examinations. Little known fact: the few times he's been on a beach or in the water, he always wears a shirt. He himself is probably one of the most unlikely of anyone I know to develop skin cancer from exposure to the sun!

Retin A product

I have seen Dr. Kligman so many years ago at the University Of Penn Hosp. The Dr. Kligman that invented Retin-A. I have nothing but good reviews for him. I had wanted a chemical peel instead he gave me the Retin-A to use and told me that i would not need a peel after i used the Retin-A. He was right and did not let me spend the money for the peel.
