"I had an amazing experience with Dr. Lederhandler! She was extremely thorough and professional, while also being super calm and kind. I have a history of basal cells so being in the best dermatological care is extremely important to me. I felt great and safe after our visit and plan to be a lifetime patient! She found one mole that was a bit suspicious and took multiple high resolution photos to monitor it closely and is having me come back in three months. I loved having a plan in place and also documentation of the issue so it can best be followed. I fully trust her and her decisions with my skin. I also had developed milia from my mask wearing and it was really bothering me. Dr. Lederhandler was able to quickly remove the milia and my skin is looking great! The office was a pleasure to work with and easy to make an appointment. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Lederhandler!"
