I was sent to Dr. Backstein by my GP for a growth he though was skin cancer on my nose. Dr. Backstein examined it and felt a small biopsy would be wise before doing a large removal. Well, turned out not to be cancer at all so I am thankful to Dr. Backstein for his judgment as he saved me from having a large scar on the tip of my nose!

I've read a lot of the reviews below and agree! Dr. Backstein definitely has a nak for his work. I was referred to Dr. Freiman who then consulted Dr. Backstein for skin cancer surgery. It was terrifying to consider surgery was needed basically right in the middle of my face beside my nose. Dr. Backstein and his nurse immediately were able to calm me and make me feel better about the situation. He took his time with the needle and was gracious with being patient with me despite my anxiety. The results are great and scarring very minor. So overall the experience was enlightening and very positive.

Had a life-long mole removed from my face. I was very hesitant to do it as my family was against it but always bothered me. Dr. Backstein did a great, great job. I can't thank him enough for helping me "save face"!

Dr Backstein is extremely top notch at what he does. I saw him at the TDC derm centre for a scar revision procedure that turned out beautifully. Despite that the doctor warned me extensively that the results were unpredictable and did NOT make it feel like a sales job I decided to go ahead and it was a great decision for sure. I am very thankful for both his approach to discussing my situation and his skills.

I had a cyst removed from my back. I went to my family doctor first to remove it and she didn't do a good job, not fully removing the cyst. I went to dr backstein, had it performed at the Humber river hospital. he did a great job, very painless , and bruising has subsided. I would definitely recommend Dr backstein. very impressed.
