Dr. Seth E Wilentz has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

All these reviews are correct! He's NOT the doctor you'd want for your money and time.

As the previous commentators exposed, Mr. Wilentz's intentions are obvious by his rushed service, lack of sympathy, and rude manners when seen patients. And, as it were not enough, he misdiagnoses and repeatedly provides no solutions to the problems you bring to his care asking you, THE PATIENT, instead, as a previous commenter said, how would you like your problem solved. I know it could be tough for inexperienced doctors, but he's not new. He should definitely work in his patient's care manners as well as to improve his outlook on doing what's necessary to treat patients diseases. I for one, stopped attending once he said there were no more treatments to my problems, when in fact there were several available. It was as if his only intentions were for me to keep showing up without proper results. Stay clear from this one. You have been warned.

Rude, Rushed, and Unhelpful

I went in to have someone look at my acne. After a five minute exam he prescribed me some antibiotics. I figured the brevity of the exam was due to the fact that it was just acne and treatment should be fairly simple, but when I went back later after the medicine didn't work he was still rushed and not very helpful. He didn't give any advice, just asked what medicine I wanted to try next. Obviously, if I knew what to do I wouldn't be going to the dermatologist for help in the first place. Seemed very rude. I won't be returning.

What a jerk!

I waited 40 minutes for this appointment. He didn't know what the rash on my hands and arms were from but still prescribed a whole slew of creams. He was insulting the ENTIRE 5 minutes I was sitting there and, when the appointment was over, he said "see ya". I'm calling my insurance company to complain about this terrible service and then i'm complaining to St. Lukes and asking for my money back.

Stay away

This doctor is absolutely terrible. Stay away and do not waste your money. He was not able to properly diagnose Molescum and stated that this viral skin disease will simply go away. Very disappointed and definitely will not return. I guess luck of knowledge and professionalism explain why it is so easy to make an appointment with this so-called doctor.
