Ratings for Dr. Leon H. Kircik
When I first came in I was the only person in the waiting room waited for about 45 min before being called back while waiting 10 other paitents came in and were being seen. One patient and doctor yelled at each other for about 2 min then dr kircik proceded to yell at his staff. I sat naked in a room from instructions that his staff told me for over an hr. He came in talked to me very rudely for about 20 sec. Horrible experiance
This doctor is very abrupt and abrasive. He wouldn't even let me quickly answer any question without being very sarcastic. He seems to enjoy belittling his patients.He took less than 5 minutes to see me and my mother. I would not recommend him to anyone. Was extremely disappointed in appointment. Will certainly not return.
I've seen quite a few nasty comments about Dr. Kircik here, I guess I can understand, he did come off as being kind of curt at times. Overall, I think he's a good doctor. Once I got to know him, he was actually pretty friendly qith me, even joked a few times. He treated a skin problem that was causing social issues for me, after 5 months, he cured it. I would recommend him. I wish I still lived in Louisville, I would certainly have continued to see him.
Kircik would remove one 1 mole per visit. Insisted that was all my insurance company allowed him to do. He left a 1/2 inch scar on my face. I then went to another dermatologist and it was like heaven. Courteous staff. MD removed 2 moles and a wart -- all in one visit -- and all without scars. Same insurance company -- paid for all services.
The office staff is a little gruff and the waiting space is uninviting, with nothing to read or look at other than a couple photographs, but I have no complaints about the doctor himself. He may be interpreted as hurried or not-interested, I took it as efficient and confident. I needed a cyst removed, and he gladly stayed late that day to do it. He also cleared up my wife's acne after she'd tried various other methods than the one he prescribed.
I have some possible skin cancer. I'm concerned. I point out the areas. He abruptly tells me that he cannot look at anything but ONE MOLE as the referral only covers one at a time. I'd have to go back to my PCP for anything else. I'm incredulous at at this (wouldn't you be?) and say, really? (thinking about the ordeal it took to get just this far) and well, I say, "Wow, OK let's look at ONE mole then" - and he becomes furious! I wasn't rude but I was shocked. Then he says he doesn't 'like my attitude' and doesn't have to see me, he gets to pick and choose the patients he wants - goodbye! He has a terrible case of pomposity, not to mention he's focused on pushing $250+ a pop skin care at you. My intake sheet was riddled with questions: do I want skin care, anti-aging treatments, and products that make him the most money? No real care, just pricey products and gimmicks. I'm sure he'd have had lots of time for addressing these things. Avoid this rude doctor like the plague.
