The experience with the doctor and assistant was just fine. In and out quickly for my annual skin exam. The administrative side of this office is operating in the 20th century. DON'T ACCEPT ZOCDOC MEDICAL RECORDS They didn't accept my medical records from ZocDoc and made me fill out their paper forms upon my arrival. The front desk admin told me "I'm not sure why they are still using 'that system' [ZocDoc.]" They must be using Zocdoc for scheduling because I had to waste my time filling out stupid, duplicative forms that they could have easily imported or just printed out and typed in. This is simply not considerate of my time. DON'T PROVIDE AN ITEMIZED RECEIPT FOR FSA At checkout, the office couldn't give me an itemized receipt that I could have to justify the payment to my FSA card. I have to wait to receive an itemized bill in the postal mail in a few weeks. They couldn't give me one while I was at the office because they outsourced their billing. This is setting me up for a bunch of future phone calls to track down a simple bill that should be printed and given to a customer at the office upon request. If you are looking for a streamlined experience, I wouldn't go here.
Dr. Avram is a wonderful dermatologist. Almost no wait time, comes in after having consulted with the physician's assistant so I don't need to repeat myself, and consults me in my treatment decisions. Highly recommended.
When I first researched Dr. David Avram, I saw a lot of reviews saying that the wait time was really long. I experienced no delay at all and saw Dr. Avram right away for my appointment!
I've been seeing him for many years and he's both an excellent doctor and very nice.
Dr. Avram is very conversational and lays out options and is also willing to answer all questions. Has a great sense of humor and positive demeanor.
Awesome dermatologist. In every way and great staff.
He was great, he made me feel comfortable and more so it was important to him to understand my issue and solve it. I went in with low expectations of a solution but he addressed my needs and was very invested in me leaving with an answer and solutions.
Efficient, wonderful manners, and did the trick on 10 minutes (I have been putting off this appointment for 5 years because I did not have a doctor I trusted). He was recommended by a friend and it was an excellent recommendation. Would go back in a second should I have skin conditions again.
Great Doctor, but wait was 45 minutes :/
Quick diagnosis & treatment.
My appointment felt rushed and my wait time was longer than I anticipated. Staff was very friendly and office was very clean.
Smooth, everyone was friendly. No complaints.
I had to wait for awhile but it was well worth it. It's quite obvious he is a busy man and yet he was warm and personable and answered all my questions. I'm glad I chose this Dr.
The visit was pretty quick and felt very rushed. He was very nice and explained things, but I felt a little like a piece on an assembly line. Unfortunately, I've noticed that in most dermatologist offices.
The whole visit can be described as perfect! Dr. Avram was highly professional, incredibly helpful and absolutely respectful. I highly recommend him!
Very efficient and professional.
Dr. David Avram is a great dermatologist! There's a short wait (10 minutes or so), but that is to be expected when a doctor is in high demand and provides such great service to patients. I highly recommend.
Dr David Avram was thorough, professional and extremely kind. Great visit!
Convenient in Brooklyn Heights, nice offices and professional / efficient doctor. Went for an annual skin screening. Found him on ZocDoc.
excellent physician very personable great bedside manner. He was very patient and very thorough.
Just a yearly exam; he was pleasant and thorough.
The doctor appeared very knowledgeable and had great bedside manner
I've been going to him for at about ten years and really like him. I wish every doctor was as friendly and professional as Dr. Avram.
Excellent doctor and a great first experience with Dr. David Avram.
amazing dermatologist! the front desk staff can be a little stuffy at times, but as far as dermatologists, it doesn't get better than Dr. Avram - I really love his bedside manner and he truly listens to you.
really good visit, i had to wait a little longer than I'd prefer but I didn't have a very urgent problem either so there may have been some circumstances behind the wait, it wasn't that bad though, nice waiting room.
Professional, thorough and no run around.
David was personable and compassionate. He listened to my questions and gave me actionable advice. Made sure all my questions were answered and concerns addressed by the end of the visit.
excellent physician, professional and helpful office, very good experience - couldn't be happier!
I've been coming to him for just about3 years, and I think he's great!! His staff is also wonderful!
He looked at my skin, said it was in good shape and left the room. I had some questions, but no invitation to ask. There was an interesting conversation not about our appointment. Dr Avram seems to be knowledgable. The experience was disappointing.
A good visit.
The wait took forever, but once in the exam room, the nurse was incredibly nice and Dr. Avram was great.
He was very professional, comprehensive & he took the time to perform a thorough exam and explained everything.
I found it too be very professional and warm and friendly.
He is a great guy, that instantly knew what treatment would be best. He also recommended alternatives that wouldn't require a prescription.
He's receptive to my perspective and opinions about my care options.
Doctor Avram is courteous, and informative. Would go back to see him for a follow-up.
Dr. Avram was very efficient and professional. There was minimal wait time and his staff was wonderful.
A little disappointed in Dr. Avram's thoroughness.
Will continue to go back- he's always prompt, listens to my concerns, and takes the time to explain everything to me.
Dr. David Avram is professional, warm, thorough, and excellent bedside manner and addressed all of my questions. His office staff was efficient and the appointment was right on time. I would recommend him and his office highly.
My wait was not long, and Dr. Avram was thorough and courteous. I would definitely recommend him!
Dr. David Avram is great. Warm, professional, obviously brilliant at what he does, he makes getting an exam as enjoyable as such a thing could be. I recommend him very, very highly and without reservation.
Dr. Avram was skilled and professional. I had to wait a little longer than I would have liked, but not too bad. Knowing that, I would just plan my next visit more carefully.
Great. He gets to the point quickly.
Always pleased with my visits and treatment from Dr. Avram. He is knowledgeable, personable, and the treatment he's been giving me has been effective in curing a skin problem that I had for over a year and which another dermatologist in the area misdiagnosed. I definitely feel comfortable raising any concerns I have with my skin and receiving a professional answer which is extremely important for a dermatologist.
I went to the office to get checked out and his medical assistant gave me a prescription. When I got home I realized it was not in my name. No big deal right? wrong! I called the office it is so hard to get through. I finally got someone and explained the situation to them only for them to transfer me over to prescriptions with out my permission. When I got to prescriptions I couldn't provide them with the information because it was not in my name. The lady was rude I am not going back!
I had a 9.30am appointment and he showed up at 10.32am. I don't know a one-hour delay can be created so early in the morning. I find it very disrespectful of the patient's time. Other than that, the actual consultation went well, it was fast and to the point.
Usually 10-20 minutes wait time, that is in the morning as well. Then probably another 5-10 minutes waiting once your in the exam room. But I don't think the waiting time was unreasonable for NYC. In any case, I saw Dr. Avram for a rash (ezcema) that another dermotologist misdiagnosed as a sweat rash and as a result had to put up with it way longer than necessary. Dr. Avram diagnosed the condition quickly and prescribed me a cream that worked great. He is also a very nice guy and I felt very comfortable discussing my symptoms and concerns with him.
Dr. Avram was very professional and was able to tend to all my needs on the same visit! Most places make you come back and it takes forever but I was very impressed with his expediency and level of attention.
Nice, friendly and knowledgeable doctor. Easy, quick same day appointment slot availability, short wait, great location. I was a new patient, and I was able to be seen at my lunch time; in & out within an hour including insurance verification. I will continue to see to Dr. Avram for a very long time!
It was my first time and I was very happy with his treatment.
Great doctor - personable and respectful
It was quick and easy.
Nice guy. I was in and out. No fuss :)
Dr. Avram was really efficient and easy to talk to. He was super clear and good at communicating my options.
I waited for more than an hour, and he saw me for 3 minutes and prescribed ointment. In the words of Seinfeld, 'the whole profession is 'eh, just put some aloe on it.'" I wouldn't have mind if I didn't have to wait so long, and if I didn't feel as if he was trying to push me out of there as soon as humanly possible.
The waiting time was about an hour, but the doctor politely appologized as he walked in. The consultation was short and efficent. He had been briefed by his assistant and it took him but a quick look to give me a convincing diagnosis. As there was no seating for the doctor in the consultation room, I guess it's meant to be quick. He rushed in and out, nevertheless kindly provided me with a treatment for one of my problems and had all the basic information written down for me before taken off. All in all it was a satisfying experience with a well trained and gifted though borderline overbooked professional. I'll return for a second session and the follow-up later this year.
Dr. Avram was quick and efficient and I will recommend him to my colleagues.
Fantastic experience. I was seen immediately and the entire staff was extremely professional. Dr. Avram was very knowledgable and answered all my questions. He told me what to look for and when to see him again.
The lighting in the office was so poor that he could barely see the wart on my foot. I had to point it out to him!!!
Very nice and friendly
Dr. Avram was a very nice guy. Made me feel comfortable and at ease, I just wanted to make sure that a minor skin issue I had was nothing to worry about, but he seemed like he knows what hes doing. I definitely feel more reassured after the visit.
I have been seeing Dr. Avram for years. He has always been professional, courteous and mostly knowledgeable. I have complete trust in him. I now travel from Staten Island to see him where here you have to wait a month or two for an appointment with a good dermatologist as well as a three hour wait in the office.
Very professional and friendly.
I would highly recommend Dr.David Avram, to all my friends.
Thorough and attentive.
Very quick visit but he seemed to know what he was doing!
Dr. Avram wasn't great and he wasn't bad. They scheduled a lot of back to back appointments and it was obvious that people who were there for elective procedures received more face time with the doctor. I probably won't go back.
He is friendly and made me felt very comfortable.
Excellent. Answered all my questions. I will recommend Dr. Avram to friends and colleagues.
Dr. Avram was very knowledgeable. During my visit, he gave me (3) options on how he could deliver care to me and allowed me to choose the one that worked best for me. Now thats quality care. Thanks Dr. Avram
Basically no wait time and the appointment was short and to the point. I am not sure how much thought he put into the prescriptions he gave me, but we'll see if they work and rethink after the follow-up appointment.
Seemed extremely rushed. The consultation was done too quickly in what seemed like an effort to stay on time. Not a settling feeling.
I will return, and I will recommend him
Excellent, comprehensive exam & he did some needed proceedures right away!!!
It is very impressive. The entire staff were very professional and Dr David Avram listen to your medical complains and he professionally explain the medical options you have as a patient. He respect your privacy as a patient. I will recomend him to other patients without a dought. I received excellence medical treatment from him and his staff. Thanks Dr David Avram . Your patient.
Super approachable, straight to the point, and very affable.
My wait time was less than 10 minutes, awesome. Unfortunately, so was my actual appointment. I was given a prescription (and maybe what I came in for is an easy diagnosis). I did, however try to ask questions and it seemed like there wasn't really time for answers. Nice staff, nice doctor, nice office.
DR DAVID AVRAM WAS VERY GOOD, AND LEARNING FROM HIM WAS VERY EDUCATIONAL.
Dr. Avram was pleasant and approachable and was very forthright in his explanation of my procedure. He was very gentle during my procedure, which made everything completely painless. I would certainly return to Dr. Avram in the future.
My overall experience was great!
Speedy and competent: a refreshing combination.
He spent less than 10 minutes in the room - walked in, wrote a prescription, said to come back in a few months if it didn't improve.
Great experience. Will continue to see him as my dermatologist (for post-pregnancy acne).
Dr. Avram was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough in his check up. We'll see how his diagnosis and prescriptions work out.
He was very polite and attentive. I will be coming back.
Dr Avram was very kind and honest. He let me know the details and how effect some treatments would be and honestly gave his opinions. Greatly appreciated!
I had to wait awhile to see the doctor in the waiting room and again in the examination room. I felt rushed through my consultation. As a result of these concerns, I've looked elsewhere in Brooklyn for a dermatologist.
Very nice and calming. I would definitely recommend him to others
A little disappointed that he was non-committal about whether what he prescribed would even work. I did not find him at all innovative or even supportive of helping me resolved my issues. With all the hype I'd read, I really expected more after an hour wait outside and another 15-minutes once I was in an exam room.
