Dr. Storwick finally came into the room and with no introduction said "What do you want from me". I felt like saying I want to not wait for over an hour everytime I come here, but I replied instead that I needed help with my acne. He then proceeded to tell me that I was virtually incurable, that I would have acne well into my 40s (I'm 20), and that it would be completely reasonable for me to be on accutane 5-6 times before it worked. I have already been on the drug twice, and was informed by another dermatologist that to go on it more than twice was both unhealthy and unreasonable. He called this "a myth" — the Internet would say otherwise. On top of all this he wouldn't remove his hand from my leg for almost the entire visit and he asked me about five times how often I "do the wild thing", if I have a boyfriend, when the last time I "did the wild thing" was, etc. I belive the question is "are you sexually active". Please save yourself time and frustration and do not see this pathetic excuse of a doctor.
Dr. Storwick is the best Dermatologist that I have ever seen. I would actually have to say that he is the best doctor that I have ever seen. He genuinely cares about my skin and me. I went to him for my acne, and as I'm sure most people are, was very sensitive about my skins condition and very skeptical on taking Accutane or antibiotics. Dr. Storwick answered all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable. He is very kind, & professional! His staff are all wonderful too! The entire clinic has a great vibe :) I am so happy I was referred to him and will continue to see him for any skin issues I have.
If you can spare the extra time and can put up with his staff, he is really great. The office staff is brutal and he was running a 1/2 hour behind by 8:30 in the morning. That said, he knows his stuff and was a pleasure to meet. He even identified and treated things I had not even come in to talk about.
10 years ago, I went to Dr. Storwick for an injectable to soften my nasal labial folds. For reasons which still puzzle me, he gave me Dermalive, which was pulled off the market soon after I got it. I developed huge, disfiguring capsulations all along the injectable area. I got off lucky; my current dermatologist, Dr. Remington, told me he's seen former Storwick patients who look like Gorans from Star Trek; huge welts of Dermalive around their eyes. I went back to Dr. S to talk about the situation; I remember him saying "Good fill! Good fill!" while his nurse/minion nodded in agreement. He didn't offer to do anything about this very serious (and common) reaction to Dermalive. After 6 years of Dr. R blasting them with Kenalog (and seeing no difference),this week I opted to have him cut them out surgically. Way to step up, Dr. S! That's why Dr. R gets *all* my business. You treat patients in a dismissive manner and refuse to take responsibility for maiming us. DO NOT GO TO THIS "DOCTOR".
I see Dr. Storwick for pigmentation problem. An initial consultation was a 6 months wait. Another hour of wait on the appointment date. I did not even get to see Dr. Storwick at all! A female doctor briefly looked at my face and prescribed a cream for me (a similar product that I have been using). And then she asked if I am interested in "chemical peel"? I said yes then she left me with a nurse who suppose to explain to me what it is. The nurse passed me to the front desk who suppose to give me information. Ended up the printer failed and I have nothing to take except a web address. I asked how effect it is and how long is the downtime etc, no one can answer me. They said I need to make another appointment in order to start the "chemical peel". But how can I judge if I should start the chemical peel if I was told NOTHING? Why couldn't they explained on the spot and let me make an informed decision? A total waste of time!!!
Consultation began 35 minutes late. Storwick entered room, neglected to introduce himself and asked "what are we doing here?". I responded that I was there for a consultation. The next question completely shocked me, "are you on your daddy's payroll?". I thought I must have misheard (as the question was inappropriate and completely irrelevant to my consultation) but he repeated the question again, with the qualifier.."does your dad pay your way". After informing him that I was a completely self sufficient 25 year old woman, he launched into an explanation of treatment options. He scoffed at one of the questions I asked and generally made me feel like the things I asked were a waste of his time. He finished by saying in a condescending tone "well I can tell you aren't going to decided on a treatment today, seems like you are a real thinker..I'll leave your file open". Storwick was clear that my apt was a consultation but he made me feel my inquisitions were a waste of his time. STAY AWAY
