I love this practice. I see Azelesha Rodriguez usually, so sweet!!!”
No waiting time & very professional Best doctor”
Dr. Elysa was very professional. Waiting room can use phone chargers”
My experience with the staff and doctor was definitely 5 star, but the 1 hour wait is what dropped the rating down. I have never had less than an hour wait time which is extremely frustrating. I hope next time when appointment are made and seen at the same time.”
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.”
Very helpful and friendly staff.”
Staff was very kind, and very knowledgeable. I was able to get an appointment within the week that i called, and the wait at the office wasn’t bad at all.”
Super fast service. When I actually got to see my dermatologist, he was very kind and I could tell he was truly listening and not just trying to prescribe meds. I suffer from severe eczema and my life has been a total mess and after coming out of this appointment, I finally got my spark back and have faith as I undergo my new treatment.”
Dr was extremely patient & thorough.”
Dr. Romana quickly and accurately diagnosed my skin condition and helped me with referrals and follow up care. He is fantastic!”
Great attention and good doctor”
Dr. Shapiro was caring and very attentive. Could not have asked for a better health professional in a time of need. Thank you!”
Dr. K is amazing! She’s so sweet.... Thank you so much for your help!”
PA Rodriguez was very sweet and recognized my condition immediately. Was very welcoming to my concerns and offered a lot of insight. Office staff is very pleasant. I am now a regular patient.”
