I am not the type of person to write reviews. This review, in fact, is the only review I've written but I feel it's an important one to write. I was diagnosed with melanoma in 2014 by a dermatologist not affiliated with Dr. Abbott. This diagnosis came after Dr. Abbott failed to correctly remove and diagnosis a mole.

Cynthia Abbott was a great doctor, her Midtown office is beautiful and the wait time wasn't that long. She knew exactly what I needed and preformed it with care. I felt safe.

This is often because there are multiple causes of acne, and each different cause responds best to different...
I think of my rosacea patients as “hot house flowers.” They have to be kept at the perfect temperature, have the right soil or food, be watered, and refreshed regularly, but never with fertilizers or chemicals that are too harsh or abrasive. Only the perfect combination will do. Their environment needs a little moisture, just enough to replenish the skin, but never enough to make them get red, wilt, or sweat. Occasionally their dead blooms and leaves must be “deadheaded,”...
