Everything went well. I had a little trouble understanding the Dr. but it was probably caused by the face mask. Bob

My visit to this office is among the best medical experiences that I have had. In addition to good analysis and treatment, Dr Grekin explained my conditions and his treatment to me very well. I will have all of my dermatology care from this great office in the future.

This was my second visit with Dr. Grekin and the experience was thoroughly satisfactory. Upon entering the room he exhibited a warm but professional attitude and was genuinely respectful of my concern. After a careful examination he explained at length the choices and expectations for treatment. He worked in a congenial manner with the attending nurse and cared for me promptly.

When you wake up one day to discover something unknown is happening or growing on your skin it is safe to say I was slightly nervous for my visit with Dr. Grekin. Dr. Grekin came in and had my nerves settled in under 5 minutes. He is so knowledgeable that he can explain what’s happening. Once I understood what was happening my nerves settled down because the mystery was no longer unknown. Trust me when I say I had imagined the worst of the worst. His nurse was also calming while being extremely knowledgeable. I think it’s safe to say a confident nurse is what you want prior to having a biopsy of skin removed. I asked her a few questions and she knew the answer w/o hesitation along with making it clear that none of what was about to happen was out of the ordinary. For having a not so fun procedure Dr. Grekin and his staff made the entire experience much more enjoyable. I left with all my questions/concerns answered while knowing if I ever have another odd spot on my skin I would be returning. This practice has it together! Note; my visit was in the epidemic and they followed every safety precautions! I wasn’t thrilled to expose myself to new people while trying to hide away in hopes to avoid COViD. I wasn’t even worried about the epidemic when I left because they kept me completely away from other patients! My entire procedure and visit happened w/ me being in a risky environment!
