Dr. Wesson

I met Dr. Wesson at my first appointment in her office in Great Neck. Such a lovely doctor. Easy to speak with, she listened and she was very professional, courteous and well knowledge of what I was there for. I have recommended her and her associate Dr. Brisman to all my friends. A very comfortable experience. The staff is above and beyond. So friendly and courteous. I will never go to another dermatologist accept Wesson Dermatology.

I had to wait months to see Dr. Wesson, but she was worth it. She is thorough and caring. She also has a beautifully light touch with her cosmetics. I could not recommend her any higher.

Four Stars

I scheduled an appt. on a holiday 2 months in advance & was assured twice that she was working. Two weeks before this appt, it was cancelled & her office staff didn't even give me the option of a preferred day--they booked appts & disregarded that I made this appt way in advance. I work & therefore taking days off is not as easy as someone who doesn't.
