How was your experience with the doctor?The office was very professional and most importantly meticulously clean exactly what you would expect from an amazing dermatologist’s office. The cream she prescribed for me works on my psoriasis immediately unlike the last dermatology office I visited two months prior.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have to say that everything about this doctors office was amazing! The office is beautiful! The staff is the most friendliest, kind and they made me feel so welcome. As soon as I came in, the woman at the front desk was very friendly, the doctors assistant was also very friendly and just very nice people. I met with Iris and she was awesome. She explained what she was going to do, she went over the treatment she was going to prescribe and she also gave me a few samples which was great. Overall I loved this place and everyone there. I look forward to my next appointment and also getting some information on anti aging treatments that I can have done in the future.

I enjoyed every minute in the beautifully decorated office feeling that everyone I was in contact with tried to answer all my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend It.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was happy enough with initial visit. She recommended a surgical procedure that was appropriate for my skin cancer but did not tell me that Medicare did not cover it. Only after it was done did I find out that I owed a lot of money.

How was your experience with the doctor?Beautiful office. I was there for a general dermatology visit and Dr. Russak is clearly focused on cosmetic dermatology. So I was a little worried as I was waiting for her that I am in the wrong place. However, she has treated me in a very professional way, addressed my needs and did not propose/ sell any cosmetic procedures. Excellent experience.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a really positive experience at Dr.Russak's office. I had basal cell cancer last year that required mohs surgery so i am now on a course to be dilligent about my follow ups. My previous doctor didnt seem thorough at all and it concerned me. Dr. Russak had a great bedside manner, made me feel comfortable, was extremely thorough and then fully explained course of treatment and follow up appointments. All in all great experince, found my new dermatologist!

How was your experience with the doctor?The office is immaculate and the staff is extremely friendly. Dr. Russak did not push any treatments or prescriptions which I find rare in today's environment.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was very impressed- it's hard to find a doctor you trust as there seem to be a zillion. I had not been to the dermatologist in years and made an appointment to have a few places looked at, Dr. Russak (and her assistant) were VERY friendly, personable, took their time to explain procedures and told me any costs not covered by insurance upfront (which I appreciate). I will definitely return and give Dr. Russaks information to friends.

How was your experience with the doctor?Julie and her aesthetician assistant were incredibly helpful, professional, thorough, and knowledgeable. Just as the ZocDoc reviews I read had indicated, the office itself was very modern, sleek, and clean, and Julie was very attentive. While they only book at 15 minute intervals, Julie was helpful and patient and I did not feeling rushed at all as I was going through my list of questions for her. Highly recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?Highly recommended. Dr. Russak and her practice were really great. The physician's assistant took all my info on an iPad and really listened to the issues I was describing and was very friendly and courteous. Dr. Russak herself was great and explained everything about what she was prescribing and why. She gave me manufacturer's rebate coupons for the medication and told me to call her office if I had any pricing issues with the pharmacy.
