A good dermatologist?

dry winter skin knucklesAlison asks:

Any recommendations on a local dermatologist?

We hear that, in addition to trying to find a good dermatologist, Alison is also looking for one who might do well with kids.

So, got a suggestion? Please share! As usual for these types of questions, non-redeemable bonus points for a quick explanation about why that doctor is good -- thorough, good listener, whatever.

Dr Teddy Pan came highly recommended to me.

Dr Joel Spiro is good and the nurse practitioner who works with him (I think her name is Nancy) is excellent. Dermatologists can be very difficult to get an appointment with, so start early.

I can 2nd the recommendation for Dr. Pan. His office is near Harriman Campus. Great doc.

I agree that Nancy, Joel Spiro's nurse practitioner, is excellent. Spiro, however, is a dinosaur of the old school so be prepared for him to pat you on the knee and call you "honey." I prefer to avoid the old coot and if I had a serious medical issue (skin cancer instead of adult acne), I'd find another dermatologist.

I have been going to Dr. Jerome Hill in Glenmont for years. Sometimes you wait awhile to be seen but he spends quality time with you, listening and answering questions. Love him.

Dr. Jerome Hill is excellent. His Physician's Assistant (PA) is also wonderful.

Went to Dr. Spiro to get a mole removed. He is old school and doesn't have the nicest bedside manner but overall the experience was good. He told me if my insurance didn't cover it he would charge me $100. He sent me a bill for $275 but when I called they dropped it to the $100 agreed upon price.

I second Dr. Jerome Hill and his practice. I have seen both Dr. Hill and his nurse practitioner. Excellent. Good with kids as well.
