Specialties

Dr. Gary J Brauner has the following 2 specialties

  • Dermatology

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
    Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

  • Dermatopathology

    A dermatopathologist is an expert in both dermatology and pathology. They specialize in diseases related to the skin, but where a dermatologist would examine a potentially-cancerous mole by looking at it, a dermatopathologist would examine your skin cells in a lab, more like a pathologist.
    Beyond just skin cancer, dermatopathologists also study a wide range of skin conditions, including everything from warts, moles, spider veins and herpes, to dermatitis, rashes, vitiligo and other conditions related to skin discoloration.

WON'T RETURN!

Awful doctor. I made a huge mistake when I booked an appointment with this doctor. Basically told me he couldn't help me because my insurance would take too long to pay him. I was in disbelieve. Instead, he gave me some him, which I told him I had tried before and didn't work. he didn't care. Off I went with an useless prescription, needless to say, I wont ever be back there! Go at your own risk!

Hurry up and wait.

I am happy with the doctor EXCEPT he is always late. Sometimes more than an hour late, even if you are the first patient.

disregard for patient's time

I am not sure why he believes it's acceptable to keep a patient waiting for over an hour and a half. I finally got up and left and the office called me back as I got into my car, saying the doctor was ready to see me. Since I had already invests my morning to see him, I decided to go back. He spent 5 minutes or less and didn't even apologize for wasting my morning. His staff kept saying stupid and untrue (in my case) things like "oh he really takes time with his patients, but when he is with you, He is WITH YOU". He made the visit very unpleasant and hardly bothered to listen. He told me to come back in two weeks for a follow up. Overall, it was a horrible experience for me...like the last reviewer said, I don't plan to return.
