Arrived at Dr. Topper's office and after I was ushered into the room the nurse took my history and looked at the area where I had concern.She asked me "if it bleeds" and I said, "only if I pick it".She walks out and a HEAD NURSE comes in and says "You may have skin cancer". I asked the nurse where the doctor was and thought the doctor should be coming in to look at the area before making such a statement.The HEAD NURSE said that the doctor reviewed the chart and was aware of everything.I had never been to this doctor before so what was there for her to review before seeing me. Anyway the doctor comes in and appeared nice.She said she would do a biopsy to determine if it was cancer and turned her back to me.The nurse took a needle and numbed the area.I thought this was odd.Here is a nurse on her tippy toes trying to reach my nose to inject me while the doctor has her back to me.If the doctor was performing the biopsy I would think she would want to make sure the area was numb and thought it should be her responsibility to numb the area since she was performing this biopsy.Anyway I didn't have cancer and will go to a doctor next time who is a bit more ''hands on''.

Business Response:

Dear Patient: Your review has just been brought to my attention. I would like to apologize if your experience at our office was less than satisfactory. I assure you that had I been aware of this issue, it would have been immediately addressed. Our philosophy of medicine is to provide individualized treatment with the highest level of care and compassion. I am very concerned that my patients know that all medically appropriate procedures are performed personally by myself or any other physician at DermPartners. Certainly, under no circumstances, are our medical assistants ever allowed or encouraged to discuss a prognosis or diagnosis prior to the doctor's discussing same with the patient. In May 2013, Dr. Jodi Fiedler and myself launched DermPartners and together draw on 30-plus years of combined professional experience for our practice. Our goal is to provide individualized treatment for each patient in both the medical and cosmetic aspects of dermatology by demonstrating respect, compassion and the ability to listen. Again, I do apologize if you were unhappy with your experience, and I hope that you will afford us the opportunity to address your dermatology needs in the future. Warmly, Shari Topper, MD DermPartners

Dr Topper seems to be a smart Dr and provided good care, however, the bill seemed to be much higher than any other dermatologist we've seen for similar care. There were numerous items billed for one office visit. After one visit we decided to not see this Dr again. Otherwise, office is clean and staff is friendly...only one staff member at the front desk was rude...he seemed to have an attitude towards the patients that was demeaning.

Dear Patient, This review was just brought to my attention, and I want to apologize if you did not find our pricing to your satisfaction. I can assure you that neither I nor DermPartners bill for unnecessary procedures. If a patient has insurance, we do everything possible to help patients get a clear understanding of their benefits before going forward with any procedure. At the time of your visit or after, I would have been more than happy to answer questions regarding our fees had you brought your concerns to my attention. We do, however, appreciate your comments because they help us to reevaluate our approach. Our goal is to always do our best to provide our patients with the quality care and service they deserve. Again, I apologize if you were not treated in the manner you saw fit, and I'm willing to discuss in length any misgivings or concerns about your experience if you call my office. Since this review, we have a new practice and our office has relocated. I invite you to come back and give us a try. Sincerely, Shari F. Topper, MD
