    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.

Not a proper body check

Was dissatisfied with my PA’s body check. Was very rushed. Was not given opportunity to ask questions .Will not be going back to this dermatologist. Have only seen him once in all of the years that I have been a patient of his. Always had to see one of his PA’s

Can never get in to see him!

Cannot get appointment if you have condition that needs attention right away. I had flare up of eczema and it covers both legs, itching and burning, but was told I could only see him 3 weeks from now. Good thing he's not a cardiologist.

The Best

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Sugarman to anyone seeking a profoundly knowledgeable and caring dermatologist. Appointment times are often booked out a little ways, but that's just further evidence that everyone wants to see Dr. Sugarman as he is the best.
