How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Engelman has excellent bedside manners. She's a very good listener, professional and patient.

How was your experience with the doctor?She was super nice, fast, and informative. Gave me options and different price points of ways to treat a skin condition. I truly felt like she cared about the best option for me -- not just for her bank account.

How was your experience with the doctor?A great experience overall. I checked in online and did not have to wait too long. The nurse that attended me was friendly and polite, made me feel comfortable and that she was really listening to my needs. Dr. Engelman was very friendly as well and put me at ease. I needed a small procedure, she explained everything before she started and talked to me during the procedure. I felt that she listened and allowed me to ask the questions I needed to ask. So often it feels that doctors rush patients out, but I did not feel that way with Dr. Engelman. A great experience!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Engelman was lovely. She addressed my needs immediately and without hesitation, and we created a treatment plan. She assured me that we would have everything taken care of with my skin before my wedding and we scheduled a follow up appointment already to make sure of it! The entire staff at the office (reception, PA's, etc.) were so helpful and sweet. I would recommend to anyone!

How was your experience with the doctor?This Dr was not for me, or anyone who is looking to feel heard. She has a great office and a very nice staff but the visit was cold. I am in my late 20s and just trying to understand whats best for my skin. She came in offered me Botox spent 2 minutes with me and then had her nurse come back in and had me try to sign a pre payment for a dose of juvaderm for the future. I had never been to a dermatologist before and was highly disappointed. If you know your skin very well already and just need an update on medication than she should work fine, but if your really trying to understand your skin and how to keep it healthy find someone else

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been suffering from severe psoriasis since I was a child and I was looking for a better solution to live with it besides coal tar shampoo and topical sprays. She prescribed me topical spray. Whomp Whomp. Also she seemed very busy like she didn't have time for me. I think she sat with me for less than a minute. She didn't seem very interested about my concerns. I'm 95% positive that I will not be going back as this is not the kind of treatment I'm looking for.
