Verified Patient Reviews
Had a couple of moles surgically removed, and the procedure left some pretty ugly scarring. The sutures and wound closure was not done in a good manner, and I'm left with some pretty bad scars. Will not go back.
He saw me for all of 5 minutes and took a phone call while he was in the room with me. I would not go back to this office.
nice guy. smart guy. explained the reason for my condition in a way that I understood -- didn't just give me a diagnosis and walk out of the room.
Dr. Ciocon was extremely friendly, helpful, and professional. He was a little quick with me, but his staff was warm and welcoming enough that I didn't mind.
Very informed. Asked questions. Just a great doctor.
A very pleasant experience.
Great bedside manner. Dr. Ciocon is very knowledgeable. You can tell he keeps well informed of the latest research and technologies and will take the time to walk you through it, and the pros and cons of different treatments.
Dr. Ciocon was very friendly and professional! He spent ample time with me during my visit, and was even willing to look up other doctor referrals for me after my appointment. The waiting room and examination room was clean and comfortable, and the wait time was minimal. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ciocon!
Very nice doctor. Extremely down to earth and easy to talk to.
Dr. Ciocon and his staff were very friendly, but I felt as though he didn't take my concerns about my health problem very seriously. He seemed very rushed and tried to leave the appointment before I had a chance to ask all of my questions. Pleasant enough experience but not the right doctor for me.
Dr. Ciocon was very patient and attentive. I definitely plan on going back to him.
He so friendly
My first visit to see Dr. Ciocon. Staff were very professional, polite, and courteous. I waited only 10 minutes before being seen. Dr. Ciocon is so sweet! He looked at the problematic area and reviewed pictures that I took over the years. He knew immediately what the problem was. I've seen several specialists and no one had an answer. He took time to educate me on the problem and told me he do could do a biopsy to confirm the issue. Walked me through the biopsy. Very quick and painless. And I'm a big baby with pain! I highly recommend this doctor. Offices in New York and New Jersey. I visited the office in montclair.
The doctor is good, however, the wait in the examination room is wayyyy too long..
Very nice and good doctor! Recommend!
Friendly and sociable doctor. Wait time, however, is a different story. Wouldn't be surprised if they double booked. Never have had an appointment start on time despite always arriving early or at least on time. In addition, similar to other reviewers, he probably spent less than 10 minutes with me vs the 30+ that I waited. Bottom line? I would probably recommend him just purely for the fact that he's a nice and friendly doctor but if you're looking for someone who will spend more time with you, perhaps look elsewhere.
Dr. Ciocon is wonderful. By far the most attentive Dermatologist I've ever seen. He was incredibly down to earth and took the time to not only evaluate my skin, but walk me through the details of my new daily routine. Two thumbs up!
Professional, polite & informed. He's excellent.
Passionate about what he does. Takes time to answer questions.
Very professional, knowledgeable and informative.
The appointment went well. He was very professional and went right into my skin problem so in result he was with me a total of 2 minutes after 30 minutes of waiting in the room. After taking time off work, I expect at least a 10 minutes consult. Is it really too much to ask to have a relationship with doctors? I truly believe a lot of things in your normal life can be hints to help a diagnostic. Other than that he was very knowledgeable and helpful.
He was very nice and personable, he checked everything with care and gave me suggestions considering my skin type. He was open to answer questions. His stuff is also really nice and prepared. I will definitely go back there.
Really smart, pleasant doctor. He has a great attitude, listens and is excited to help you.
very happy that i saw him, as my condition was initially misdiagnosed by a less than competent dermatologist near where i used to live. highly recommended!
Excellent, I am refering him to my family as well.
He's an awesome doctor!
Very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. Great staff. Nice, clean office. Evening appointments offered on Wednesday nights are convenient.
Doctor and office were great!
It was fantastic. He gave me a lot of information on what needs to be done to my skin and products and procedures that will be beneficial for me. Def going back for my next appointment.
Helpful and informative we will see! Dr. David it was refreshing to meet a dermatologist that could lead to future improvement!
My mother and I were both seen by Dr.Ciocon. He was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable! He took his time during our visit and explained to us step by step his plan in our treatment. All of our questions were adressed in detail throughout the visit. We would highly recommend Dr.Ciocon!!
I really liked Dr. Ciocon. He was thorough, took his time to explain things to me and had a very nice manner. If it were not for the long wait time, I would rate him 5 stars.
Loved his bedside manner. Very happy with the results after healing.
He was quick and efficient. Although he clearly explained everything and definitely took some time to look at my skin, I felt that he was in a rush. Overall, I am satisfied with my visit and will return, but I would have preferred that he spent some more time to get to know about my habits (cleaning, moisturizing, what I eat) and my history.
Returning patient and fan of Dr. Cicocon, and he has proven himself once again! I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking professional, caring dermatology help.
Dr Ciocon was very professional. It is the first time a dermatologist gave me a complete examination. I am very pleased
Very friendly and professional
Dr. Ciocon was a rare combination of compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. He listened to my concern and explained to a variety of treatment options. I did not feel rushed and left satisfied. I highly recommend Dr. Ciocon and will definitely return.
He came into the room looked at me for less then 10 seconds n went out. Told me things I already knew
I was highly impressed. I just had a simple rash, but he really spent time with me explaining what was going on. He was super nice, made good eye contact, and seemed very thorough. I will definitely recommend him to friends.
Dr. Ciocon has a very warm and inviting presence. His sensibility and care for his patients are present immediately. I highly recommend this man down the road to dermatological recovery.
The follow up visit was very quick. Kind of hoped he spent more time. Felt as if he was in a rush.
I am an existing patient with Dr Ciocon. I will always remain loyal to him because of his superior medical background and skill set and of course his warm bed side manner. I would absolutely recommend him as I already have. My friend went to him at another location and thanked me over and over again for referring her as she said he was so precise with all he did and so comforting as she was nervous prior to the appt but said she walked out feeling so much better and so happy.
Truly thorough and caring professional. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Ciocon following a negative experience with another dermatologist, and my expectations were well surpassed. Having researched my cystic acne condition extensively, he listened to my preferred treatment method, and went above and beyond to research on-the-spot an appropriate vitamin regiment to coincide with the antibiotics, whereas the previous doctor's assistant would not even table the discussion. He clearly explained the pros and cons to all treatment options, and bespoke the prescriptions to my personal and family medical history. I would highly recommend Dr. Ciocon.
My visit was helpful, productive, enlightening.
Overall good experience. Was a quick visit.
We weren't able to solve my issue but he was very kind and attentive. His staff was very personable. The office is clean and welcoming.
Very professional doctor.
All his appointments were on time and his office is nice. Dr. Ciocon is a great down to earth, friendly and well informed professional. He is a great choice, and I would return for any dermatology concern.
Dr. Ciocon was absolutely ideal. He treated me the way you wish every doctor would. He explained everything in detail, he was thorough when asking all questions about my medical history, and his bedside manner was impeccable. I recommend him to anyone, young or old. He was respectful, endearing and just plain NICE, which is so hard to come by these days, especially in Manhattan. He's just fantastic!
As always my experience with Dr Ciocon and his staff was outstanding. I was taken in with in 5 mins of arriving. The staff was friendly and professional. Dr Ciocon took his time with and listened to my concerns and then addressed each one. I continue to go to Dr Ciocon because he very simply is the best!
Felt comfortable asking all of my questions. He answered each question thoroughly.
He was very nice and quite thorough did an annual skin cancer exam first time with this practice. Also had them do some Botox.
The entire visit (signing in, waiting, consultation) lasted about 30 minutes -- that can't be beat. Granted, the reason I visited turned out to be nothing, but still. The front desk were very cordial and courteous. I already had the forms filled out (thank you, ZocDoc), so that saved time. About 30 seconds after taking my forms, I was called into the back. There, I spoke with the nurse (?) and she took the preliminary info. A little after that, Dr. Ciocon came in, recognized my concerns and quickly squashed it. He was very respectful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Done.
He is a friendly, kindful and professional doctor.
He is very kind and efficient. Wait time was short. The office looks clean and cozy. He does seem to move fast though so make sure you have your questions ready. But he was patient to address my concerns.
The office staff could have been a bit more professional when I forst got there. Dr. Ciocon himself was great. He helped me with what I wanted help with and answered all of my questions. He was also training two new doctors which was surprising at first, but he asked me if it was OK for them to be there and they were helpful as well. The next time I need to see a dermatologist I will surely make an appointment with Dr. Ciocon.
Dr. Ciocon is like a breath of fresh air! I've seen several dermatologists in the past few years, and none have been as sincere and caring. He had several appointments going on around the same time, but he took the time to sit and get to know me, my background, and my challenges. He listened so intently and, instead of just spouting off his prescription right away, he worked through it with me to find a regimen that I felt comfortable with. Then he even typed out the instructions and gave me a print out so I couldn't mess it up! Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, he spent a while longer with me answering my request for recommendations on products and cosmetics that I haven't found favorites of yet. (And it doesn't hurt that the office is 100 yards from Sephora). All in all, great appointment. I've never felt so satisfied and hopeful leaving a derm office before. :)
I waited briefly only because I was late myself, but I could not have had a more positive experience. He was very personable and answered all of my questions/curiosities more completely than I hoped, all the while delivering the material in the most appropriate wording so that it was especially accessible/digestible. He was really great, and the nurses were on point as well.
Very professional and efficient. Would recommend
Very clean and professional office. Dr. Ciocon was very personable and listened carefully to my list of ailments. I will definitely continue to see him.
A great experience. I am a juvenile diabetic for 28 years. I have seen a lot of doctors and Dr. Ciocon is one of the best doctors I have seen in a long time!!!
If you are looking for a GREAT dermatologist, who is sharp, thoughtful and patient - and whose staff is helpful and friendly - Dr. Ciocon (pronounced "SHO-con") is HIGHLY recommended.
Absolutely phenomenal! Couldn't ask for a better experience!
I was late for my appointment by 20 minutes so i can not blame them for not taking me in right away.The Doctor was very professional and was very nice. He answered all my questions and even when the exam was done and he was walking out the door, I asked him for some more of his time for some questions and he sat back down without hesitation and gave me his full attention Office staff was very helpfully. If you have ever been to a dermatologist you should know its usually at 5-10 min. exam. I have been to many dermatologists and its the same across the board. Don't be discouraged by this. Have all your questions memorized so at least you don't get home and say "Dam I forgot to ask the doctor..............."
Great. Thoroughly professional and efficient.
Dr. Ciocon was easy very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He answered all my questions and I felt comfortable around him.
He really helped me and knew exactly what was going on.
He is very professional and great. Im sticking with this dr!
I liked him very much. He was very knowledgable, friendly and on time. And he didn't give you the feeling he was in a rush to run off and see other patients.
He was so great! He made me feel really at ease and explained everything that I had concerns over. I waited a little bit for him in the office, but it was totally worth the wait because he was very informative and compassionate. I usually struggle with visits to the dermatologist because I have very sensitive skin. I just moved and so had to find a new one, and I am so happy I found him!
Both me and my boyfriend went to see Dr Ciocon on two separate days, and we both ended up having to wait close to an hour. Ridiculous. Esp since when my boyfriend went, he was called by his staff to come in earlier since the doctor had an opening!! The doctor himself has nice bedside manners and apologized for the LONG wait. He tried to be patient and listen to my skin problems, but I could tell he was rushing, so I didn't feel comfortable filling my prescription since he didn't take the time to explain everything in detail. I tried asking him questions, but again, it was obvious that he was rushing, so I said forget it. Front desk staff are unprofessional and seems to not be communicating at all with the doctor.
Very patient-oriented care. Staff works well together, generous time given to patients for procedures, questions, etc.
Very nice and professional. Will become my regular dermatologist
I really like how comfortable he made me feel and he was great making sure I had all my questions answered.
It was a very positive experience.
Another Amazing appointment with Dr Ciocon! This was my 3rd visit and my experience was just as wonderful as it was the first visit 5 months ago. The staff was pleasant and prompt with their service. The wait time was less than 5 mins and nurse was thorough with questions prior to treatment. Dr Ciocon was very kind as usual. He really took his time to explain everything to me and make me feel comfortable. I was most impressed with his explanation of what he was doing and why. His knowledge of the products and how they work and why he injects is specific parts of the face for my personal facial expression was so comprehensive. It is no wonder why my results each time I go to him are absolutely awesome and why I will always go back to him for any dermalogical needs I may have in the future.
My visit with Dr. Ciocon was very positive.
He was wonderful! Very easy going! Great office -would highly recommend!
It was great
Dr Ciocon was warm, personable and knowledgeable. He put me at ease and made me feel very comfortable at a visit that I came in feeling nervous about. I would definitely see him again if I needed to. The office was modern and the staff was friendly as well.
Very nice guy
My first visit is not bad and I have to see how it goes subsequent visits.
Great dr , extremely nice and professional .
Dr. David Ciocon was very thorough and took his time explaining different proceedures with me. His kind bedside manner meant a lot to me. His staff was exceptional too. Thank you again, Joan M. Fry
I was very impressed by the nice office and staff. The service was outstanding an eerybody was very helpful with a nice smile.
Dr. Ciocon was great -- not rushed, very nice, answered all of my questions and was flexible enough to do a last-minute add on treatment. Would highly recommend to anyone!
Dr. Ciocon was extremely friendly and warm. He answered all my questions thoroughly and was quite patient. I was even 10 minutes late to my appointment and he still saw me right away despite a full waiting room. Another sign of how wonderful Dr. Ciocon and his staff are that all the patients in the waiting room looked happy. The office was clean and the staff are extremely welcoming and professional. I have seen many doctors and none compare to the great experience I had with Dr. Ciocon.
My visit to Dr. Ciocon's office was the best experience that I've had in a doctor's office. The office itself was beautiful, extremely clean, and the staff was very helpful and courteous. Dr. Ciocon was very professional, informative, and, at the same time, was able to make me feel comfortable, which is usually a problem for me visiting any doctor. It was easy to disucss with him my biggest issues and concerns and I left the office with absolutely no questions, doubts, or complaints. Without question, I would recommend him to any member of my family and to all of my friends and co-workers. Moreover, I don't see myself visiting any other dermatologist in the foreseeable future.
Agreed with previous review about that you can hear doctor, nurse and others' conversations from waiting room. If you have very private matter I would not recommend this place.
I highly recommend! Excellent experience.
Awesome guy! Very personable. Listens to everything you have to say and answers questions. Very thorough and quick to bring you back in the very next week if needed. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Very nice guy and on top of things. I would recommend him to anyone
very professional and beautiful office
Friendly Staff, clean office and Dr. Ciocon was very thorough.
Dr Ciocon was professional, thorough, and friendly. He answered all my questions and took time to explain things. Recommended!
Dr. Ciocon was great. He and his staff were very friendly. Although, his walls are kind of paper thin and I could hear what was going on in the room next to mine.
Confident, courteous, and efficient. Going back for a follow-up next week. Thanks Dr. C.!
I was very impressed with the visit and felt that Dr. Ciocon was very interested to help me and while I went in for itchy skin condition, I also was examined for skin cancer and a biopsy was taken. Just shows he was interested in the total patient, not just what was bothering me at that time.
The doctor was knowledgable and had a excellent manner. I will be returning for a full skin check-up
Dr. Ciocon was very friendly and gave straightforward, sound advice. I went to have a mole checked out and he made the removal process easy and painless. The only criticism I have is that the appointment felt a bit rushed, however that can be a blessing in NYC!
He was sure of him self and straight forward.
Dr Ciocon was friendly explained the procedure thoroughly beforehand, he also explained my skin type and factors that may have caused the skin lesions. He was very nice and I would recommend him to anyone
Amazing! The office was beautiful & staff was very professional. Dr Ciocon spent a lot of time with me thoroughly explained everything and made me feel very comfortable. The results were amazing, best I have ever gotten. I have already recommended him to a friend and she's booking an apointment with him ASAP. I Highly Recommend Dr Ciocon!
Dr. Ciocon was excellent. He makes you feel so comfortable and explain exactly what I have and the procedure to removing it. His staff was excellent as well. I will recommend him to EVERYONE!
It was a very quick visit; but, Dr. Ciocon was very professional and friendly. He answered all my questions. The rest of the staff were warm and welcoming as well.
