Dermatologist Silver Spring - Testimonial 01


  • 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.
    - Andrea S.
  • Dr. Patel is a gem,..I was being treated for psoriasis for 10 years by various dermatologist and was seeing no results, he was referred by my dermatologist and he did a biopsy on me and the results showed that I indeed did not have psoriasis, instead I had a drug eruption from Diovan HCT, I was allergic to the HCT in this medication that I had been taking for 10 YEARS! THANKS A MILLION TO DR. PATEL, I am slowly healing and will never change dermatologist again.

  • Dr. Singh is an extremely competent healthcare professional who demonstrates caring and compassionate towards all his patients.
    - Maddox G.
  • 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'.
    - JM
  • Dr. Norman Lockshin is great and diagnosed a condition that my PCP and another doctor failed to diagnose correctly. The problem is resolving and would not have been possible without DermAssociates. The office staff is very friendly. I thank my PCP for referring me to this practice. No complaints from me!
    - Kenny L.
  • Dr. Patel and Dr. Abrams are both excellent ,very helpful and very caring. They have gone out of their way to provide great care. Would definitely recommend both doctors and their assistants.
    - Stuart D.
  • My wife and I really liked Dr. DeSimone. She was clear and unambiguous, and the whole medical procedure was just like she explained it to me. She is great!
    - Roberto F. L.
  • We saw Dr. Melissa Abrams for my 11-year-old daughter. She was fantastic – she immediately knew how to relate to my daughter and made everyone feel comfortable. She had great advice (luckily our issues were minor) and didn't rush at all. She chatted with us and I felt like we could hang out and have coffee – that's how genuinely friendly she was. Would rather not need to come back, but if we do, we'll be so happy to see Dr. Abrams again.
    - Shuly Babitz and Rebecca, age 11
  • I've been a patient of Dr. Norman Lockshin for 30 yrs. Now that says something about my satisfaction with the high quality of care I've received from everyone. Dr. Abrams is a superb doctor and I will recommend her to everyone.
    - Joshua A.
  • Dr. Singh was excellent. He explained my condition, method of treatment, and was very professional and friendly.
    - Chloe E.
  • A few years ago I took my daughter to a dermatology appointment in an upscale neighborhood. I felt like I was in a cross between a plastic surgeon's office and a spa. At DermAssociates it did not seem like they were promoting products, but were a more professional medical practice.
    - Sharon W.
  • A very relaxing atmosphere and Dr. Benjamin Lockshin is a very confident Doctor.
    - Rosario Y.
  • Dr. Cole is great. She listens to you, is humorous and sincerely cares.
    - Susan Q.
5 DermAssociates - Reviews
When I know I can relax and receive pleasant but effective advise and treatment. Of course, I wish we didn't need to see a doctor for any reason but if I have to see a physician, I am delighted that Derm Associates can be my family's choice.
