It’s quick visit but I enjoyed working with Dr Ginsberg. The front desk was bad though. They didn’t return my ID to me and I had to go back to the office to pick it up..

Great doctor & beautiful office! I felt like I was at a spa. Doctor Ginsberg quickly assessed the situation and provided a diagnosis. The best part was how he explained what was going on - he didn't dumb it down, butthe way he described it was completely understandable and accessible.

Dr. Ginsberg is fantastic. He took the time to explain everything thoroughly and answer all my questions. It seems pretty common to have dermatologists rush you out the door with a handful of samples. I'm happy to say my experience withDr. Ginsberg was the opposite of that. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a dermatologist in NYC.
