Patient Testimonials

The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. Dr. Lockshin has always provided me with the best medical care possible and takes time to explain everything he does. I have been going to Dr. Norman Lockshin for years and sometimes see Dr. Ben Lockshin . Would highly recommend them to everyone.

Dr. Cole is a wonderful doctor! She listens and makes me feel at ease. Dr Cole is extremely knowledgeable and professional and is also a very nice person.

Dr. Ben Lockshin provided excellent medical care – a minor procedure was conducted efficiently. He answered all my questions in an informed and understandable way. Also very kind, approachable, and professional.

Dr. Singh was excellent. He explained my condition, method of treatment, and was very professional and friendly.

After suffering from an itchy rash for almost 3 years and seeking help from many dermatologists during that span, I was referred to Dr. Cowen , who thought I may have an auto immune disease or some type of lymphoma. Within 2 weeks I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After the second chemo treatment I finally had relief as the rash began to disappear. I greatly admire his knowledge as a physician and wish that many other doctors would think outside of the box rather than simply treating ‘the skin’.
It was the most pleasant health check-up I’ve had in years! Dr. Lin was personable, competent, had great energy, put me at ease immediately. Everyone in the office was helpful and amiable.

Dr Dronavalli is an excellent doctor… Really took care and time with me plus he is very polite person.
I love Dr. Norman Lockshin. He is very courteous and explains everything clearly and calmly. I wish all my other doctors would be as excellent as he is
Wonderful experience . Dr. Levender was very professional answered all of my questions, took the time needed and overall provided a high-confidence experience that I will recommend to friends
Thank you to Dr. Abrams for her time and expertise. I was particularly grateful that she called us on the phone to speak to me before seeing my 11 month-old and that she fit us into her busy schedule in a few days (as a new patient!) even though she didn’t have any openings until later in the month.
Dr. Ben Lockshin, is the best dermatologist I’ve seen, and I’ve had psoriasis for thirteen years. He even went to extraordinary measures to help with containing care during a gap in my insurance coverage. Also, just a nice guy.
I love Dr Singh. He is knowledgable and compassionate. He explains in a way that I can understand, he is thorough and caring. Even when the message is sometimes hard to hear. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much Dr Singh. You are a blessing to me. God bless you
I thank God that my husband found DermAssociates by Google. I was misdiagnosed before coming to you. I was at wits end and my psoriasis was getting worse by the day and needless to say I was becoming depressed as I thought topical ointment was the only treatment!!! All I can say is “THANK YOU DERMASSOCIATES.”
So far me and my two little girls have seen Dr. Abrams and Dr. Dronavalli and I am very pleased with both. Thanks for a positive experience!
Dr. Norman is just excellent!
Dr. Singh does a great job. He explains very clearly the procedures that will be used and the follow-up. I always feel very comfortable with him and he greatly reduces the stress of going to a dermatologist .
Dr Lin provided professional, complete examination and consultation and made me feel at ease. I highly recommend her.

Dr Levender is a very caring person–she called me after my surgery to ask how I was feeling. no other doctor has done that! kudos to her.
Dr. Abrams is my regular physicians and certainly one of the primary reasons that I am a loyal client. Most recently, knowing my history, she has caught melanomas that might have easily been missed–thus enabling early and less invasive treatment.
I saw Dr. Cowen initially and was then scheduled for an excision with Dr. Levender. Both doctors were extremely affable and took the time to speak with me about my complaints and treatment.
Had a great experience here under the care of Dr. Dronavalli. He was very thorough in his examination and friendly as well.

Dr.Lin is one the finest dermatologists I’ve come across. I’ve seen a lot of doctors earlier for my acne issues, Dr.Lin paid attention to detail when I was expressing my frustration over my past experiences. She was very patient and carefully explained all my options in detail. I’m glad I finally found a Doctor who shows genuine concern in correcting their patients skin problems.
I just want to thank Dr. Aubrey Wagenseller for her treatment of me. Everything went well and I appreciate her concern and care.
