Wait time was about an hour. I was the first patient in the office but two other patients were taken ahead of me. I received text confirming appointment time which was wrong. Doctor was knowledgeable Will be returning”
The experience was amazing, the treatment I received was a success and the service was very helpful. I would highly recommend”
Best experience I’ve had with a dermatologist. Kind, patient-centered and comprehensive care. Thanks!”
Fast, friendly, efficient. Exactly what I needed.”
Excellent work from the doctors/PAs, I've seen Dr Shapiro and PA Mithal. However, the front desk staff are very chatty. They are always on their phones texting and/or talking out loud to each other about their personal lives. Found out from their conversation that they both live in Brooklyn, something I do not wish to know, but had no choice to listen to. Came in for a visit and the front desk staff was using the company phone to talk to a technician who "walked out" (yes I saw her walk out of the office) to get Dunkin Donuts breakfast. On top of that, the receptionist and technician were asking the patients how to get to Dunkin Donuts, very unprofessional. Not only was the receptionist playfully cursing on the phone, but it seemed like they stopped taking patients in until the technician came back from Dunkin Donuts with their breakfast.”
The doctor very friendly and makes you feel comfortable”
Dr. Shapiro is professional in every way. He really knows his craft. I felt total confidence in his ability to deal with my medical issues. I'm going to become a regular patient of his. Also, the receptionist was very helpful and understood my needs.”
Dr. Om was great at explaining what exactly is needed.”
I went to the Inwood office 2 weeks ago and surprisingly there's no wait at all. (Maybe because I was the last patient.) The MA was nice while she did the assessment for me. I saw Shannen the PA for my hand eczema and sunburn. She's very caring and knowledgeable. She really has a heart for her patients. Thanks to her, my eczema's almost cured, although I do missed seeing her. I would say making appointments in the last hour is better.”
The Dr was extremely patient with my son who kept flinching when he was given the shot for his hair to grow. The front staff was okay had to tell I was a new patient so I can sign necessary documents but doctor was excellent.”
Today was my first visit and I was very please with Dr Suraj. He was very informative and I hope that I see good results on my face. Overall very happy”
Dr. Shapiro was professional, affable, and reassuring. Highly recommend! Office staff was super helpful and parking was easy for early am appts!”
Dr. Rodriguez is confident and competent. Excellent work! She is fun too!”
Easy to use.”
I was very comfortable they took me right in my appointment my appointment was for 9 O’clock I waited five minutes and I was in it was a very good experience”
