Verified Patient Reviews
Everyone was very cordial and professional. The only wait time that I really experienced was of my referral not being there on time. I would recommend her to everyone.
Absolutely an amazing Doctor. Very attentive and explains in detail as to what your procedure will be. I recommend anyone to visit. Her staff is very upbeat and kind.
I liked Dr Kodama very much....very thorough with everything!!!!
Extremely informative. She took the time to explain things to me. Office staff very friendly as well.
Wonderful staff. Very professional. I was quite nervous going into this appointment as it was my first skin screening ever, and Dr. Kodama made me feel very comfortable. I left the office with some product samples for a trouble spot on my shoulder as well as plenty of information on safe skin practices and what to look out for in the future. A completely positive experience! I am so glad I found this office!
Let me start with the positives: Dr Kodama's staff was warm and professional. They helped to ease my 85 year old mother's nerves as they performed the procedure. The doctor herself was also very caring and patient with my mom, even taking over for her assistant to speed things up. I truly appreciate how they treated my mother. My only complaint would be that we waited over 30 minutes from our appointment time before we were taken to an exam room, though once we were in a room, we didn't have to wait too long for the doctor to come in. Overall, I would definitely recommended Dr Kodama.
It was great
I have been to about 6 doctors before her and no one could help me or tell me what was wrong. She was able to diagnose me and provide me with the care I needed in minutes. AMAZING! I am so happy I went to her
I am a retired surgeon and took a chance as the wait time for former colleagues in the field of dermatology is absurd. I had an appt with Dr. Kodama in less than 24 hours. The staff is great, the doctor is great. The best doctor's office experience I have had in a very long time.
She is very understanding and knowlegable about her field.
Dr. Kodama is very nice. She will great you openly that you wouldn't feel uncomfortable talking to her. Not like to others "M.D." who doesn't have the professionalism to deal with you emotionally. I am always hesitate to see or meet new doctor because its very hard to find a great doctor now a day who can deal with sensitivity to their patients. So, Dr. Atsuko Kodama is one of the old type MD who serve patient from the heart.
Rather than brushing me off when I came to her with a wicked sunburn (like I half expected), she gave me four prescriptions for medications that very quickly had me feeling 100% better. Dr. Kodama is a terrific doctor, and her staff is wonderful, too!
Very fruitful. Dr. Kodama gave me instructions how to treat my skin problem correctly and efficiently.
My appointment was for acne and scarring left by stitches. I gained more from a single appointment with Dr. Kodama than I have from many others over the years. She listened, discussed and examined with great detail. She gave me a perscription with a plan, an explanation for each step and a timeline. She went over my daily skin care routine and pointed out products that could cause breakouts. THE BEST PART was she gave me a list of drugstore health and beauty product options including facewash/masks, face lotions, sunscreens, and makeup (foundations/coverups/powders) with a check next to her first recommendation. This was a weight off my shoulder, in the form of not having to worry about what to use and not use or playing a guessing game about which product caused my sensitive skin to breakout! I also left with instructions, a foundation sample, sunscreen sample and coupons.
excellent mannerism; will refer to collagues and family
Wasnt quite what i was expecting. She came in after the Medical assistant compiled all of the notations from and began prescribing right away. I managed to ask several questions about my needs. She answered everything. Seems very knowledgeable. This is close to home. Will try to go again and see a different prespective. The staff there are wonderful.
Was seen quickly. English is not the doctor's first language and had some difficulty understanding her. But her assistant was there the whole time and able to clarify if I had a question. Solid, professional visit.
Good visit but she never sent my prescription to the pharmacy so I had to keep calling back to remind them to send it.
Amazing. Thorough. Got me in and out quickly.
Beautiful experience. She knows her stuff staff are personable and great . Will never go anywhere else.
Very nice and professional
Vey thorough. Took tome to explain my concerns in detail.
The Doc was great! Told me what it was in less than a min. Showed me excellent information and pics.
This has been by far the best dermatology experience I have had yet! The staff that I worked with seemed to be a direct reflection of Dr. Atsuko Kodama. They were all very knowledgeable, kind, attentive, patient, and positive. No matter what issue I had, they responded with a solution, a smile, and a confident we can help attitude. I actually am excited and hopeful after my experience, which is a first for me!!
I really enjoyed the calm atmosphere of the waiting area. This was my daughters first visit. She has Autism and they made her feel very welcomed!
Great doctor, office employee's were very friendly and professional. Doctor answered all my questions and treated me right away in her office. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is searching for a good dermatologist.
The wait was not bad at all and those minutes are worth the understanding and sympathy she shows while you're seen. Her staff is equally as wonderful and acknowledged me immediately after walking into the office, being checked in promptly. I've had a skin issue for a while and felt insecure and was desperate for help identifying and choosing a regimen to control it. She helped me with both and know I feel like I can help myself by knowing whats going on with my skin and feel more in control of it .Thank you, Dr. Kodama, can't wait to see you soon.
She sat down with me and was very knowledgeable. She was also caring & thorough!
This was just my first visit for what will probably be an extended thing, but so far so good. Dr. Kodama is warm, interested and a tiny bit hard to understand, but the assistant, Linda, is great at helping the patient-doctor relationship work. I look forward to my next appointment.
I really enjoyed it, good comunicating doctor patient , everybody is nice and very helpful. The shortest waiting time I have experienced.
Dr Kodama and all of the staff at this office was INCREDIBLE to say the least! The service, care, and concern that was illustrated was by far the best I've ever received in all of my experiences at doctors offices. The staff at the front was very welcoming, friendly, and had a genuine smile. It made me feel so comfortable and valued as a new patient. I even called prior to me arriving because I was lost and running a little late, they assisted me with directions and assured me that I would still be seen. I felt OK walking into the visit and I felt AMAZING when I left:):) the dr. Kodama was very patient and listened to all of my concerns, she was very informative and educated me on my diagnosis. Pam (assistant) gave me a big hug at the end of my visit along with some very encouraging words. My concerns were addressed and medications sent right over to my pharmacy!! I loved this experience and I highly recommend this doctor and her amazing staff!!
I found my visit there extremely satisfying. The staff was very courteous and the doctor was attentive to my problems and explained everything to me. I will definitely be going back and am trying to convince my husband to try a visit there.
I didn't know what to expect, but once we began communication, I was satisfied with her diagnosis. I think she's brilliant!
Dr. Atsuko Kodama is very knowledgeable and knows how to take care of different kinds of skin issues. She helped me when I had acne and also helped with a wound on my shoulder. She is a great dermatologist.
Dr Kodama is very competent, friendly, patient. She explains conditions thoroughly and educates patients on better skin care. No rush in the office.
Th staff was very friendly! My appointment was brief but she addressed all my concerns and was extremely comforting!
Dr Kodama and her staff were friendly and I got a same-day appointment, which was important to me. But I would never go back. I had a reaction to medication she prescribed and when I called the office for help, they never returned the call. I called the after-hours emergency line and the person who answered was extremely unprofessional, and prescribed another drug without even asking my symptoms that made the issue worse.
Super friendly staff...and the doctor super nice answered all my questions made me feel good
The office was nice and clean. The staff was very pleasant. The doctor was very knowledgeable, and the appointment was wuick without me feeling rushed.
She was great. Maybe a little hard to understand but the nurse was there to clear up and translation problems. I have had a rash for as long as I can remember and I am 55 years old. I visit another Dermatologist two months ago and she had no clue of what the rash was. I have been to doctors for years no one knows anything. She walked in and looked scraped a little off (no pain) looked at it under a microscope and knew right away. Now for the first time in my life I have hope that this rash will be gone. If everything works out she will be the best Doctor ever.
Excelent visit, she is very experienced Doctor, she also spent enough time to understand my concerns and to address them. I definitely highly recommend her
After 30 years, the last two of which being particularly uncomfortable, and four dermatologists, Dr Kodama diagnosed my skin condition in less than a minute. She even pulled out a dermatology textbook to teach me about it. Lovely clean office, friendly staff. I wish I'd found Dr Kodama sooner!
very profesional and caring, would recommend to everyone.
Dr. Kodama & staff is great. Highly recommended.
Was able to get approval right away without a wait 6/14
I felt so comfortable, Dr and MA were very attentive. .. From the time I walked the receptionist was very polite.
Pleasant, friendly and a comfortable environment. I would recommend Dr. Kodama!
The doctor and her staff were very friendly. Dr. Kodana explained everything that she was doing to me.
I felt the staff was very attentive. They were busy but well organized. I filled out the forms online which saved time. I was taken into a room within 15 minutes and the doctor came in within 5 minutes. The doctor is great. Very informative and her assistants are very knowledgeable.
Everyone was very nice. Dr. Kodama was extremely thorough and accommodating. Very efficient and explained everything you wanted to know. Would definitely recommended Dr. Kodama. The office is so nice and clean too. .

Very Clean environment, professional and efficient employees. Dr. Kodama was very knowledgeable about eczema and had great recommendations. My daughter has been to other DR.s and dermatologists none of which compared. Thank you.
Dr Kodama is very knowledgeable and professional. My whole family goes to her office. Highly recommended.
Great doctor! Everything fast and easy.
Her and her staff are by far one of the best, if not the best in the city. Dr. Kodama gives it to you straight and will give you advice on how to handle anything you have thoroughly and will have you out of there in 10-15 minutes. I highly highly recommend her.
She was sweet & knowledgeable. KNew my condition by just my symptoms before even seeing my problem. Was in & out under an hour & made me feel completely comfortable.
My husband and I both saw Dr. Kodama for the first time. We were pleased with her efficiency, professionalism, and especially her great bed side manner. So many doctors today are cold, assembly line individuals; get them in and get them out sort. Not Dr. Kodama. She has a very warm personality, just what a patient needs. Her exams were thorough and her explanations were welcomed. Thank you, Dr. Kodama!
Better than what I expected.
Dr. Kodama was amazing! I had to see her twice because of my problem, and both times she was courteous and friendly. Her staff members outside were friendly as well. The medical assistant in the room that helps her wasn't so pleasant. But Doctor Kodama was excellent. I would highly recommend her to others.
Dr. Kodama and her staff were warm, welcoming, prompt and articulate. The office is new, cozy, and clean. Dr. Kodama heard me out on my issues with eczema and acne and put together a plan of action for me. I was really pleased with her thoroughness, and her attitude. I felt like she cared which sounds minor but it's huge! She gave me the impression that she's interested in my long term well being and didn't just shove a bunch of rxs down my throat. Highly recommend!
Dr. Kodama & her office staff are wonderful. Very knowledgeable & pleasant. The office was very clean & comfortable. Not a long wait time at all.
The staff and the doctor were all very nice, and I was in and out! She even took the time to look at a picture of my daughters birthmark and answer my question (completely unrelated to my appointment). I will definitely go back there should I need a dermatologist again.
She is most pleasant and very very attentive. Outstanding.
Dr. Kodama and her staff was very pleasant, all of my questions was answered. The Office was nice and clean. I will recommend the Doctor to others
The building was east to find. The office and atmosphere was pleasant and clear. The personnell was very nice and attentive. Dr. Kodama was friendly, for me I would have thought since I was a new patient that she would have been more hands on and took care of my problem instead of her intern or assistant. I do believe that everyone has to learn, but for me the doctor should be the first to attend to the patient, especially a new one. I was informed by others this is the new practice with doctors now. With that being said the whole experience was pleasant. I will be going back.
I needed to find a dermatologist right away for an emergency and Dr. Kodama was the only local specialist with an availability right away. I was in and out within 30 minutes and was completely satisfied. Her staff was also very professional and extremely helpful!
Dr Kodama was very thorough, reviewed all my concerns and told me quickly whether anything was a concern. She answered my questions, gave me practical advice and was very warm and polite.
The doctor was very nice, polite & she answered all of my questions. I am happy that I now have a new dermatologist doctor that I will definitely be going back to see real soon. Thanx to zocdoc??
Very fast and professional
She's really wonderful. Very sweet and thorough and I didn't feel rushed. It was well worth the drive from Cherry Hill NJ.
The office staff was professional. As soon as my paperwork was completed, I was called in to be seen. A standard health interview was conducted to collect my medical history. When the doctor came in, she greeted me warmly and flashed a cheerful smile. Everything from the full meticulous examination of my skin to the knowledgeable explanations to the detailed answers to my questions, made me feel very secure and confident about her care. I have been to quite a few dermatologists, but I finally found the ONE. Although I have to travel out-of-state to see her, it is well worth the time.
I was in and out. she was nice and courteous. I was able to get the information I needed from her about my condition within 15 mn
Excellent Service!!!!! Office was nice and clean,Staff was very professional and Courteous. Dr. Kodama took her time and explained everything well. I would truly recommend her to anyone needing a Dermatologist.

They took me right on time...doctor came right in....
I feel I was so fortunate to have met such a wonderful person as Dr. Kodama as well as her pleasant and efficient staff. Never have I felt so warm and welcomed from a physician and staff as I experienced that day. I only wish Dr. Kodama could be my primary doctor. I feel blessed to have met her.
I've been to several other dermatologist and have never been as satisfied as I am with Dr. Kodama. I really like her.
She was great! Took one look at the problem and instantly knew what it was and how to fix it. All of the office staff were great too!
very friendly and professional, answered all my questions
Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful! The office was very clean and there was no wait time. I would definitely recommend this doctor and office.
Awesome, really loved the visit.
She is an awesome doctor.
This was my first time at the office of Dr. Atsuko Kodama, MD, PhD, and I was seen immediately. One of the nurses is much more pleasant than the other with an excellent bedside manner, and Dr. Atsuko Kodama was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I would recommend her for any dermatological concerns.
Dr was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. First visit and very happy.
My experience with Dr. Komama was amazing. She is by far the best dermatologists in the Greater Northeast area. Please consider Dr. Kodama when choosing a dermatologist. Trust me, you will not be sorry about your decision.
Very much liked her professionalism and friendly personally!!
It was an easy comfortable experience. The office is a beautiful cozy place to be in and the staff were friendly and laid back.
First time I used zochoc telling everyone my great experience dr was. Great and didn't rush me thank u
office was clean and modern, no waiting, trouble understanding dr., as she had a thick accent
She was professional, kind and knowledgeable. She took her time and alleviated any and all of my concerns.
I've been to a few dermatologist and Dr. Kodama is by far the best. She has a wonderful bedside manner and knows exactly what she's talking about. I will definitely be going back and recommending her to other people. She came highly recommended by other people and I'm so glad I took the advice.
She is great doctor ...
Doctor very pleasant
Dr. Kodama was very comforting and reassuring, traits that I value in a physician. She assured me that my condition was not serious, and nothing to be alarmed about. Her office personnel were friendly and outgoing. I've never booked an online medical appointment before. I couldn't believe how easy and how effective it was. I'll be sure to use Zocdoc again in the future, and I'm definitely recommending Dr. Kodama to my family and friends as an efficient, knowledgeable dermatologist.
Very sweet and knowledgeable, one of the best dermatologist experiences I've had. Other staff was friendly as well.
Great doctor very informative answered was all my questions. Would recommend her to others
I had a great appointment. Thanks.
They immediately helped!
Very thorough and professional. Friendly and knowledgeable.
I am 30 years old and have had eczema my whole life. I live in fishtown part of Philly and found Dr. Kodama on this site. I wanted to find a doctor that actually took the time to listen to my problems and explain all my options. Not only did I have zero wait, I did all my paperwork online before hand, but Dr. Kodama took about a half hour to discuss my issues. She provided me with options I never knew about and no other doctor I had seen before brought up. Within 24 hours my skin is doing much better and I was able to sleep through the night without scratching. I will gladly make the 15 mile trip to see her, and would recommend her to anyone who wants a doctor that cares and will take her time with you.
beautiful, clean office, helpful staff, Dr. Kodama is friendly, professional and thoroughly answered all my questions
I am very happy with my visit. She was very informative and made me feel much better about my condition. I went to two other doctors before her and she was the only one who could diagnose me correctly. She spent a lot of time with me and addressed all my concerns. Would highly recommend Dr. Kodama!
Very professional and thorough.
I like everything. Great medical personal , beautiful office and doctor Atsuko Kodama she is the best. Doctor Atsuko Kodamo the person Whom you can trust!
