Dr. Kofinas was efficient and professional. The whole appointment - including filling out patient intake forms and waiting - lasted about 30 minutes, but it did not feel rushed at all. Although I was just visiting for a skin screening, thedoctor offered candid advice on managing issues like acne and dandruff. I appreciated her recommendations and was very happy with the overall experience. It's good to know Dr. Kofinas' office is the kind of place I can easily visit during a lunch break.

I am embarassed to say that today was my first visit to a dermatologist to have my, what should have been always been, an annual skin check. Dr. Kofinas was excellent. I very bad anxiety around anything medical and she wasvery comforting. I was concerned about mole on my ankle that I was told needed to be removed but she took a closer look at it ans said its a very normal mole and that I shouldnt take it off unless I have to. She addressed another skin concern that I had as well and overall I felt the appointment went well. I did have to wait a while but the front desk was so nice and apologetic for the wait and explained they had an emergency.

Dr. Kofinas was professional and knowledgeable. However, I would rate the overall visit 3/5 starts. While I arrived at my appointment five minutes early, the person who walked in next to me had an appointment 15 minutes later than mine butwas still seen ahead of me. I ended up waiting around 25 minutes to be seen whereas she waited 5. It also seemed the experience with Dr. Kofinas was a bit rushed. She answered my questions quickly and in a way that seemed she wanted to move to the next patient as quickly as possible (to be fair, I’ve had similar experiences with other dermatologists). Lastly, there was a bit of an up-sell for some of the cosmetic services offered in-house. Overall, the visit was relatively pleasant - a clean office and professional stuff, but just a bit of a wait at the start and what felt like a rushed appointment.

Dr. Kofinas really took her time to listen to me and help me find a solution. She was smart, caring,helpful and I honestly have no complaints. An extra bonus is the beautiful office that overlooks Central Park!

I highly recommend Dr. Kofinas! She was very kind and knowledgeable, patient, listened to my concerns, and offered a few different options to treat my issues. She was quick but thorough, and very friendly! I appreciate that she didn't try topush any one product, as some dermatologists do. It's also a plus that she has appointments outside of normal business hours. In addition, the staff at the front desk are an absolute delight!! They made my appointment/experience great from the moment I stepped in the front door. They were helpful, seemed genuinely happy to see me (at 6:15 in the evening I'd say that's admirable), and incredibly friendly. There are a ton of dermatologists in NYC. I'd say it's worth seeing Dr. Kofinas if you're looking for a new one- I don't think you'll regret it!! I'll definitely be back!

Honestly everyone seems to try to be friendly and nice. The doctor was pleasant as well, but billing-wise, they were not knowledgeable or experienced enough to accurately explain it to me. I may not go back just to avoid that hassle.
