Specialties

Dr. William K Sherwin 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.

Disorganized, obsolete office, hostile staff

This is a disorganized office where paper intake forms are transcribed longhand into paper records... The nurse made lots of errors in this process which led Dr. Sherwin to refuse to refill a prescription I'd been taking for years. As if I wasn't the only source of information for that chart to begin with... His partner Dr. Lieberman has also made changes to my prescriptions without telling me or offering to discuss. Communication is really a problem for these doctors and their staff are very rigid handling anything that's not completely routine.

Been Seeing Him for 25 Years

Time does fly. Dr. Sherwin is a fine doctor and a master of diagnosis. I've had about a dozen suspicious moles removed by him, all painlessly. Highly recommended.
