Dr. Allen Sapadin, M.D.
A state of the art facility located in the heart of Hackensack.
I am from Arizona and I was bitten by a brown recluse spider before boarding a plane to N.J. for Thanksgiving. By the time I got to N.J. the reaction to the bite was very bad from my ankle to my knee. I didn't know I was bitten by the spider so the E.R. doctors at Hackensack University ER treated me for an infection. I was admitted to the hospital and after the leg was no better in 3 days the doctors recommended that I see a dermatologist. Dr. Allen Sapadin came right over and after talking with me for about 45 minutes it was determined that I had been bitten by a brown recluse and he immediately took me off the antibiotics and gave me IV steroids. The area began to look much better within 24 hours and I was released from the hospital the day after Thanksgiving after a six day stay. Dr. Sapadin followed up with a phone call after I returned to Arizona to make sure I was doing OK. I would recommend this man to anyone
Dr. Sapadin is very thorough in his examinations....had found a melanoma mole on my back which was removed as a stage 1 cancer three years ago...also other moles which were pre-cancerous over the next few years.,..saved my life from extreme danger and painful recoveries a couple of times...well worth the wait sometimes in his office...highly recommended as a Dr
A friend was referred to Dr. Sapadin by his primary physician to have a mole checked. I had a spot on my face which concerned me and did not have a dermatologist so I also made an appointment. In the course on my exam Dr. Sapadin identified 7 spots on my face and head which he thought needed to be biopsied. The biopsy results proved him right: 3 were precancerous which he removed in a follow-up visit, 3 were squamous cell cancers which required MOHs surgery (done by a colleague in his office), and 1 was a melanoma. Dr. Sapadin referred me to an oncologist and surgeon - two excellent doctors. The melanoma was removed in hospital and an examination of multiple lymph nodes during the surgery showed that the cancer had not yet spread to the nodes. I consider myself as extremely lucky that I went to see Dr. Sapadin. He is a caring physician, knowledgeable and professional. My situation could have been life threatening. I will make it a goal to get regular future checkups with Dr. Sapadin. I would also like to add that I found his nursing assistants and front office personnel to be both friendly and helpful. This doctor is a keeper!
Recommended to me by my oncologist from HUMC. Have been a patient for approximately 8 years. Dr. Sapadin is knowledgeable, patient, thorough, and always openly consults with my oncologist regarding all of his findings. Because I am a melanoma survivor, Dr. Sapadin has been extremely proactive when it comes to checking every inch of my skin. He patiently answers all of my questions and makes recommendations based on his findings.
As a new patient with a suspected skin cancer, the office got me right in. The treatment was excellent, fast and through. Removal of the cancerous growth was handled quickly, in-house. But it was Dr. Sapadin took a substantial amount of extra time to precaution to me about my particular vulnerabilities. The office is clean and efficient. The staff friendly and professional. They even have coffee and cookies in the waiting room. I think that Dr. Sapadin loves his patients.
I went to see Dr. Sapadin to check a spot on my face. I wound up having 7 biopsies for suspicious spots on my face and head. Results showed Dr. Sapadin was correct: 3 were precancerous, 3 squamous cell cancers and 1 melanoma. Thanks to Dr. Sapadin's expertise I subsequently had these cancers removed. Had I not gone to see Dr. Sapadin these issues could have proved life-threatening. He is a kind, caring physician who is completely devoted to the welfare of his patients.
I have been going to Dr. Sapadin's office for years and have had great success in the treatment of my psoriasis. The laser treatments are the only effective way to keep my condition under control. And the best part is it is completely natural, I don't like chemicals or drugs to treat my condition and they respect that. I have recommended several friends and family and they love their experience as well.
Dr Sapadin had the knowledge and compassion in treating me for my ailment. He treated the issue which a minor procedure on the first visit. He took the time for me to get me well!
I have become a regular patient to his office. He is very knowledge and takes the time to listen to all of my concerns if any. He is patient, thorough, and I feel very comfortable there. I had a few minor procedures done at my last visit and I was surprisingly pleased at how pain free it all was.
Dr. Sapadin is an excellent dermatologist who cares about his patients. He takes time to listen and is very knowledgeable within his practice that translates to a relaxed and satisfied experience. I highly recommend Dr. Sapadin!
