How was your experience with the doctor?The quality of the experience at Schweiger Dermatology has quickly deteriorated in the last two years. The office is poorly run by and one of the front desk staff is inattentive, rude. I was left in the exam room for over 25 minutes in a robe with no update until I poked my head out and asked for a status update. I understand there are delays but a lack of communication of updates to a patient is unacceptable. Also, the office looks under construction and while the exam room was clean the bathroom was not, unacceptable at a medical practice.

How was your experience with the doctor?She’s a good doctor. She takes her time to work on you. She’s appears to be quiet. I wish she seemed a bit engaging with her patients. She does not look approachable. But she deserves 5 stars but I will give her three stars because she had a new assistant or intern or someone training to become a doctor and I guess she was shadowing her for the day. Unfortunately I had my appointment the same day as her intern. My face was very very numb I couldn’t feel it. After working on my face, Dr. Jamal sent her assistant to come wipe the blood off but I guess the assistant was busy and the intern came instead. Well, she left irritation which had turned into black scaring around my mouth. I guessed she wiped very hard but I didn’t feel anything. I can’t sue them because I signed a contract but I’m don’t think I will be going there again or to a dermatologist to touch my face. This is ridiculous.

How was your experience with the doctor?I am a African American 61 yr old female. I didn't meet Dr. Jamal because my skin/hair condition isn't serious. But, I met with Dr. Jamal’s Physician Assistant Emily Eppel. Emily Eppel is excellent listener and she prescribed hair scalp oil and for my skin/face a daily cream. She’s very knowledgeable with my medical condition problems. My medicated shampoo was refilled by Emily. Previous Dermatolist in Staten Island, NY wasn't helpful with my skin/hair problems and only prescribed shampoo with no return doctors visits. Emily Eppel will monitor my dry scalp/hair and face. I will have several doctors' appt’s to reduce my dryness with hair & face. Dr. Jamal has a long term patient. I highly recommend Dr. Jamal and Emily Eppel for skin/hair treatments. See you soon. Thanks for your excellent service.

How was your experience with the doctor?The office feels like a factory. They are just going through the motions and don’t really view you as an individual. Feels like a decent place to get light cosmetic treatments but they seem in it for the money and don’t care about patient health — I went in for an annual screening and asked them to renew an acne prescription I’ve had for years, they said that would require a different appointment because of ‘insurance’. No other derm has given me that line before. Also - they brought me back after about ten minutes, but then made me wait for more than 20 minutes to see the doctor (in the paper gown which means basically naked) while nurses came in TWO separate times looking for things in the room. It was really uncomfortable. Doctor spent about five mins with me total. Won’t be returning.

How was your experience with the doctor?She moved me in and out really quickly. Didn’t really offer me much insight or many options. Didn’t explain anything and wasn’t willing to have a full conversation with me about my skin or my options. Just moved me in and out as quick as possible.

How was your experience with the doctor?I’ve seen Dr. Jamal a few times (though she didn’t remember and her notes apparently didn’t say that...) and I hope this last visit was an outlier. She was running 40 minutes late for my 8.10am appointment, and when I was seen she seemed annoyed that I had expressed annoyance at the delay. It was a weekday morning and I have to get to work myself, that’s why I book the early appointment! The receptionist explained that a couple of the clinic’s providers had stopped by unexpectedly that morning, which is understandable, but I am the customer of the clinic and the clinic is the customer of the providers, so I would think you shouldn’t keep your own customers waiting in order to spend time with the providers who are trying to woo you! She removed some milia from my forehead, and did a good, quick job. Although she did ask me if there were any milia on any other parts of my face that I wanted removed, which I thought was a little strange and probably something she could have better told me than vice versa! All in all it was kind of a strange appointment. There used to be a doctor at this clinic who was amazing, but now that she has left the practice I’d only give this location tepid recommendations.

How was your experience with the doctor?Was happy with the visit. Wait time was longer than expected given I had an appointment. However, this was primarily due to me being a new patient and having to establish my patient record. I was particularly impressed with the use of technology for self-check-in and atmosphere of the reception area. Everyone was friendly and inviting which placed me at ease and made me comfortable.
