Dr. Halperin is busy for a reason. He really is a great derm and sees every patient himself. To get the shortest wait time, make your appointment as early in the day as possible, but don't be surprised when you walk in at 8:45 am and see a waiting room full of people. I see Dr. Halperin for routine mole checks and Botox for hyperhidrosis. He actually turned me on to Botox which has changed my life. His staff is very helpful in getting this procedure approved by my insurance company.

Hello,
This was the worst doctor visit I have ever had.
First of all, he made me wait a long time, which is annoying, but not horrible. I came in for a cancer screening and a small procedure. I was rushed through the visit in a few minutes. I asked him if it would hurt, he said no. I left in severe pain. To top it off, he billed my insurance company incorrectly and I had to out of pocket hundreds of dollars. I called up the office a dozen times to rebill my visit correctly, but they refused to listen to me, and the doctor never called me back. I wasn't going to pay because of the principal of the situation (their error), but I was afraid of it affecting my credit report.

DO NOT GO TO SEE THIS DOCTOR!!!

Pros: None

Cons: Rude, Late for Appointment

Modern and quite office. I had laser hair removal and the result is very good.
Doctor may not appear so friendly at first, but it's just his personality.
Prices are higher.

I've gone to him for years because he was so highly recommended by another top doctor. he's highly qualified -- and busy. So if you're looking for chit chat, talk to your hairdresser or manicurist or the sales clerk at Barneys.
He's not only an Assistant Professor of Dermatology at New York Hospital, he's also Vice Chair of the Dermatology Foundation Leaders Society. That works for me and is more important that idle gab. He's always answered every question I could fire at him and being a journalist, I've got plenty.
btw, the posting by jamor listed as Cons what are actually Pros.

Dr. Halperin is a great dermatologist. Simple as that. I've had a skin biopsy done by him that left absolutely no scar whatsoever -- I can't even find the site now. (Had the same procedure done by other doctors over the years and the scars are very obvious) I can't disagree with other posters that he's not chatty but that doesn't bother me at all. Personally, I think he's just shy. But he's very sweet and very good at what he does. I have medical skin conditions and he knows his stuff. He's also removed age-related things and done small cosmetic skin "repairs" that are just flawless. If I want a charming schmoozer, I can get that from my hairdresser or at a cocktail party. If you want an excellent skilled DOCTOR, Peter Halperin's your man.

Cons: Very smart, up-to-date, knows his field

I've been going to him for years and have not had any issues. I can always get an appt pretty quickly and wait times are are not long. He may not talk an awful lot but he always gives the info I need and if I ask him questions he does take the time to fully answer. As the other poster said I also appreciate that they are not at all "salesy"

Hmm. I have been seeing this dermatologist for years, and I am satisfied. I don't disagree with the other two posters that Dr. H. is not a talker. He certainly is not. I don't feel that he's in such a big hurry-- I feel instead that he is a man of few words.
There is something that I LOVE about this practice-- if you're there for skin cancer screenings or a dermatological problem, you will NOT be solicited to buy lots of products or services that you don't need. Instead, there is a TINY sign hanging on the wall-- perhaps it is 4 x 6 inches, offering: "if you'd like to discuss laser or other cosmetic procedures, the doctor can give you details." In other words-- we're not going to treat you like a shopkeeper would. I love that. Who needs a doc to push moisturizers?
Dr. H. removed a large mole for me, when I was clearly nervous about the procedure. He said, in his typical quick style: "it won't hurt, and in five minutes it will be gone."
And it didn't hurt. And it was gone.

Pros: straightforward, easy to visit

Cons: not chatty enough for some people

Office staff was rather snooty, but the wait was very brief.
Social skills of the derm were rather disappointing. Performed a full body scan for possible benign moles, etc, and pulled out my hairband rather harshly. Barely time to ask questions, felt like i was brushed off as a patient with prescriptions rather than practical advice or education about my skin.
Disappointed, although written up to be the derm for models with a hip and stylish office. Doesn't live up to it....

Pros: cool office, hardly any wait time

Cons: , no people skills, no time to educate pt

May be a good doctor, but very brusque and makes it clear that he wants the visit over in 5 minutes or less. Don't doubt that he is competent, but doesn't really have any people skills.
