Office cancels your appointments with no notification! 8/15/2011

I made an appointment with Dr. Effron on July 1, 2011 for Aug. 15th, 2011 at 2:10pm. I had no reason to believe my appointment was cancelled. I received no confirmation call from the office, and certainly did not cancel the appointment. I drove the hour to get to the Anaheim office and arrived at 1:51pm. At 2:07pm I was informed by a very uncaring and condesending office worker that they didn't have me on the schedule. That my appointmen had been cancelled. I assured her that I did not cancel nor received any calls but the best that she could do was to ""try and fit me in"" as if she were doing me a favor when it was their fault! She said it would be 45 minutes. Because it is a 2 hour round trip to that office, I decided to wait even though I was furious. After and hour, I told them I was leaving. It was becoming obvious that she was going to make me wait as long as possible. It would be different if it was my fault, but the fault was all on the office and I was being punished for their incompetence. After I got home, I received and email from the office manager saying that she confirmed I was not on the call list to confirm appointments and said I could reschedule. I would not waste my time again to go back there and would not recommend them to anyone. Ever. more

Rude and unethical doctor 6/10/2010

I made an appt to have 2 cysts removed. I confirmed that this would be performed at this appt and that I didn't want to have to return for a second appt. I also called ahead the day of the appt to see if she was running on time, to which the office worker said yes. I waited over 1 1/2 hrs. Dr Effron rushed in and without my permission burns a few sunspots off my face and told me I would have to schedule each cyst separately for $300 per procedure. I was charged $200 for the visit. When I protested and told her what I had prearranged, she yelled at me and told me ""she was the doctor around here."" In my opinion the staff act fearful as if they are verbally abused. I made an appt at Dr. Applebaum on Tustin Ave. What a difference. He appreciated my business treated me like a valued patient. He removed both cysts without making me come back. He also rmoved a few skin tags all for under $200. AVOID THIS RUDE AND INCOMPETENT DR EFFRON! PS She also talked me into her sun screen product which doesn't work. She claims that all other products out there are shams but hers. What arrogance! Pros: Nothing Cons: Rude doctor, staff and they lie more

Dr. Effron - Caring physician 5/25/2010

I have been a long time patient of Dr. Effron and very happy with her products especially the effronmd line. If you look at the ingredients there are no fragrances and no paraben to any of her products. Also Dr. Effron has a 30 day return policy on her products no questions asked. I have used her eye products and anti-aging products with GREAT results. Pros: Knowledgable-experienced-result oriented MD Cons: Waiting times more

Beauty Editors beware!! 4/27/2010

I can't say enough about this place. I'm a beauty editor, and I was going to write a review on Dr. Effron for my column. Now I'm afraid that if I print my experience with her, she might be removed from practice or something. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy, but Dr. Effron is someone I will never forget. Pros: Close to my house Cons: Too many to list - I am fighting to REPAIR WHAT SHE DID more


Finally my husband and I said we're never going to this Dr. again. They don't respect the patients' time; concerns or questions. Very condesending attitude toward questions, as if ""How dare YOU (lowly patient) ask me a question!!"" Pros: Teenagers acne Cons: Bad bedside manner from top down; patients necessary evil more

Be careful 8/8/2009

Treated my mate for the wrong thing. Many creams and pain later we asked our friends for another Dr.. Went to him, he emitted he could not help and give us a referral! Now their ok, but still some scares from the prolonged, wrong treatment Cons: Needs to know when she is wrong more

Caring & Passionate 7/30/2009

Very caring, very honest, very passionate, and very result driven. If you are looking for answers, Dr. Effron is the one for you. She detected my skin cancer, and I am on the road to recovery. In addition, she worked with me in a time when I was financially strapped. Her products work great, especially her facial firming. Also I was pleased with my cosmetic filler results. Pros: Result Oriented Cons: Wait times getting better more

Disappointed from many years ago 1/14/2009

I saw Dr. Effron many many years ago for my cystic acne. She was very nice and spent time with you, but I do recall long waits at her office. Also, it seemed like every time I went to her office, I came home with more and more products to add to my regime. It got pretty ridiculous. Plus, I could never go out after an appointment. She was pretty aggressive with my acne. She would poke at a cyst with a needle to either aspirate it or inject it with steroids, which hurt a lot. After the torture, I would go home with a huge gauze bandage on my face. One time she even scarred me (a small deep pit). Just to clarify, my face isn't broken out all over the place, but I would get 2-3 painful cysts, and she never once talked about oral treatments. I eventually went to a different doctor. I think my skin was irritated from all the topical ointments she had me on, and the new doctor put me on an oral antibiotic which had the best results I had ever gotten. Pros: She was very nice and spent time with you Cons: Treatments for acne were not affective more

She's busy! 10/2/2008

You know why Dr. Effron is so busy? Because she's awesome. Sure you may have to wait an hour or two for an office visit but so what? I like an older female dermatologist because it make me think of my cranky grandmother who was an excellent role model in my life. I got a bruise from my Botox but she went in deep and it took well. She doesn't offer tattoo removal just FYI but I like her for botox. Pros: I like a bossy old lady doctor! Cons: the office is small and freezing! more
