Doctor Izikson is five star

Doctor Izikson was amazing. Professional and kind with a great bedside manner. He even called to check on me when I got home. I strongly recommend him and his staff. They were all very friendly, competent and knowledgable.

Find another dermatologist.....

I thought by the reviews, that I would see a dermatologist who would take his profession more serious. I found him to be nice, but lacked the serious needed to listen to the patient instead of just dismissing them and trying to do procedures like cryopathy, when it was not needed. I had him check some growths on my body, albeit small, he looked at them with the naked eye dismissed it as, he doesn't see it. If he used a headband magnifier to see them, he would have seen them. I have been to dermatologists before and Dr Izikson just seemed "to wing it" instead of taking the time to listen and use the proper equipment to evaluate the situation. Instead he looked at my skin and told me I had precancerous spots that needed to be "frozen". So I trusted him, and let him proceed. But I walked away feeling like he took advantage of me and was just trying to make him look good and money for Crystal Run. I would not recommend him.

Disappointing

I know I'm partly to blame because I decided to listen to the majority of positive reviews instead of the two negative reviews. I thought I'd give him a chance and now I regret it.I made the appointment two days before the actual day, which was great. The office is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. I waited somewhere around 5-10 minutes before the lovely physician's assistant took me to a room to go over my symptoms. After explaining to her what was going on, she assured me that Dr. Izikson would help me out.A few minutes later, he arrives into the room. Already with a list of products in hand, he attempted to sell me an expensive product the office sells, followed by giving me a list of how to properly wash my skin as if I'm a child who doesn't know any better.Next I explained to him about a recurring situation and the list of medications and products I had used (which three previous doctors told me to use, including another dermatologist) and how they did not help yet he recommended the SAME product again (the weakest, store bought one) so at this point I was upset because I have had these issues for over a year and have yet to find a solution.I politely ask him what I should do if the issue persists and he smiled for a few seconds before saying "then you should see a different doctor."I left the office wanting to cry and short the money I paid for the copayment. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone and I hope people choose to pay more attention to the negatives than the positive and not make the same mistake as I did.
