Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Khalil was excellent in his consultation and now have a peace of mind about my skin condition. I was in and out quickly. I'll definitely come back if I have other concerns.
Dr. Khalil is great. He explained everything and was fun to talk to. Very knowledgeable and would definitely recommend.
He was very precise, thorough, and got me in and out of the office very quickly!
This office is seriously the most compassionate group of health care practitioners I have ever worked with. I am dealing with a mystery skin rash right now, and I can tell that Dr. David Khalil wants to figure out what's going on as much as I do. Yesterday we did a skin biopsy and are testing for Lupus. In all my years nobody has suggested that, and I feel like we are getting closer to the underlying cause. 5 stars, over and over again. If you want a derm that really listens, he's your guy!
He’s very professional.
David and his staff were great. They actually listened to what I was saying and diagnosed me with a skin condition I thought I had for years, but nobody was able to confirm it. Highly recommend.
Super fast and personable! Great experience!
Dr. Khalil is amazing! So kind and very well informed in various areas of acne treatment. I have seen a lot of dermatologists over the years and he was one of the sharpest and most efficient! Already seeing improvement!
Dr. Khalil was extremely thorough and informed. He is very knowledgeable and takes time with his patients. He addressed all of my concerns and took the time to evaluate things thoroughly, and asked all great questions. This is by far the best experience that I've had with a dermatologist yet! I highly recommend Dr. Khalil.
This doctor takes his time and has great bedside manners! He cares about what you have to ask and answers all my questions.
Very kind great doctor! I was there to check if a mole on my foot was a melanoma. He kindly did biopsy and let me know the result as soon as it came out.
He was a perfectly fine doctor but his bedside manner is incredibly awkward.
Dr Khalil was incredibly thorough and attentive. He took time to explain everything and was not rushed. He is very knowledgeable and listened to my problems carefully. The assistant was nice and helpful. I will definitely go back there for follow up.
Attentive, thorough. Great office with wonderful assistants.
Great visit . Doctor Khalil is personable pleasant and really put me at ease
Dr. Khalil is great! Highly recommended.
We had a regular dermatologist but we tried to search near our home. Dr Khalil was very professional and was sensitive to my teenager daughter's worries and to keep her calm during the procedure. Highly recommended.
I have had a few issues with this doctor: 1. They canceled one of my appointments 24 hours before. 2. They submitted my insurance wrong so I got a huge bill. They didn't help me figure it out and they were hard to get ahold of. 3. I had to wait more than 30 minutes to see the doctor across my last 2 visits.
Dr. Khalil and his staff were excellent. They really spent a lot of time with me and answered each and every one of my questions throughly . I would recommend to friends, family and anyone reading this review.
I went in for an annual screening, which I was doing for the first time. Dr. Khalil was very personable and took time to explain what he was doing, and answer questions. Highly recommend him.
Dr. Khalil is a wonderful doctor--knowledgeable, patient, and makes you feel comfortable. Highly recommended!
The doctor and all the staff took the time to review all of my concerns. They were very thorough, efficient, and made me feel comfortable. One of the best Dr experiences I've had since moving to NYC.
Dr Khalil is the most patient and caring skin doctor I have met my entire life. Not exaggerating!
Excellent! Took the time to discuss diagnosis and treatment options
I was a bit apprehensive at first because the front desk seemed to have several issues with incoming patients' insurances. (Including mine) However, once it was cleared that he was in network, I really enjoyed my experience with Dr. Khalil and his assistants. Very professional, knowledgable, and friendly. I look forward to working with them again.
Super sweet and patient with my worrying. Narrating everything he was doing so there were no surprises and his assistants do the same. Called me himself with results.
I am extremely pleased with my visit to Dr.Khalil's office. Dr.Khalil is a highly qualified, competent, knowledgable, caring about his patients professional. His staff is well trained, efficient and polite. The office is very clean and modern.
Dr. Khalil is a wonderful physician and has excellent bedside manner. He is thorough and takes time to explain the subject at hand. I would definitely recommend him!
very thorough and good doctor. explains stuff very well.
Dr. Khalil was very knowledgeable and made sure I felt at ease throughout my entire visit. He made sure to cover everything I wanted to ask him about and I look forward to seeing him again!
Had a very good experience with Dr. Khalid, it was my first visit. He was very professional and talked me through everything he was going to do so I was clear. I would certainly recommend.
Dr. Khalil was extremely professional, patient and thorough. He's a great listener and did a wonderful job carefully explaining the answers to all my (many) questions. I was nervous heading into the appointment as I hadn't seen a dermatologist in a few years, but he and his staff put me immediately at ease. I had some issues with my insurance coverage since I'm based in LA, but the receptionist took the time to walk me through the necessary steps and called my provider to sort everything out (he probably spent 10-15 minutes waiting and speaking with different representatives). Everyone took great care of me. Would definitely recommend and will certainly return for my next annual check-up.
Had a pleasant experience with Dr. Khalil. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Khalil was extremely professional yet personal. My time with him was not rushed and he listened to and thoroughly answered every one of my questions and concerns. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for and/or in need of an excellent and highly accredited dermatologist.
Prompt, knowledgeable, experienced and caring. I had some biopsies done, and go there for annual exam. Very happy with service. Office could improve their voice system, there's currently no way to speak to a human.
Love Dr. Khalil! The wait time was a bit long. But his assistants were very helpful and Dr.Khalil was very cool and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
Would recommend the doctor ; the receptionists were very polite and professional
So caring! He made me feel like a human being, not rushed or annoyed by my millions of questions. Best dermatologist I've had!
Great experience with Dr. David Khalil and his staff. He understood my concerns and make a biopsy on the spot, very careful, it was completely painless and it's healing fast. From setting up appointment, registration, consultation, all staff and physician you met were wonderful, professional and dedicated people.
Dr. Khalil is very professional, has excellent bedside manners, and performed a good evaluation.
Filled out the forms via Zocdoc, show up right on time and was in the room within 2 minutes. Front desk and his assistant were very nice and helpful. Dr. Khalil was very friendly and thorough, definitely took his time looking over everything. Felt happy I went in and picked him.
At first, I was very impressed by the receptionist, she was extremely pleasant and on top of her work. Dr Khalil, was very pleasant, attentive, and delicate. Exactly what I was looking for.
Very nice guy. Professional and thorough.
Great Dr! Nice, knowledgeable, clearly explain my issues and treatment. Highly recommended.
Really nice doctor who is attentive to his patients. He is a good listener and explains everything clear and concise.
Dr Khalil is very knowledgeable and attentive. I visited him for adult acne and he always consult my opinions on the treatment options. After several visits, my acne is under control.
Might be the best experience I've had in going to a Dr. Showed up 10 mins early, forms completed in 6-7 and got pulled in right away. Full exam went quick, but didn't feel rushed. Completely satisfied with the service and would give them my highest recommendation!
Doctor was really great. He was really nice, great bedside manner. He was very caring and made me feel very comfortable. He took his time and didn't make me feel rushed. I was really nervous to get a biopsy done and he and his assistant talked to me and they even offered for her to hold my hand while getting the procedure and they gave me some cold compresses when I said I often feel faint after. I really appreciated their service. The assistant came by to check up on me after several times to make sure everything was ok as the doctor requested. It's very rare to come by such great staff and doctors. Office staff was nice but one thing that was off to me was that the front desk staff asked me if any of my information changed when I checked off the new patient box. Why ask that question then on the form? Maybe honest mistake. In any case I would come back.
Great experience! From the receptionist who was so friendly to the nurse who took me to the room and asked the preliminary questions, everyone at this office is awesome! And the doctor came in right away and identified exactly what my issue was as well as addressed a few other things I'd been putting off for some time. Will definitely be using him as my go to dermatologist
Dr. Khalil was very knowledgeable, did a thorough exam and satisfactorily answered all my questions. I did not require a follow up appointment but would return to him in the future if the need arises. His staff was patient and professional both with scheduling questions and during my appointment. Thank you.
He was very gentle and seemed to genuinely care about healing my skin. He doagnosed me very fast and took an aggressive approach to treatment to insure that I would get better and wasn't wasting my time. Very happy I saw him!
Dr. K and everyone else in the office were very nice, knowledgeable, and professional!
Dr. Khalil is INCREDIBLE. His staff is awesome too. I always feel so welcomed. He addressed my issue right away and i saw a significant change in my condition. I will not go anywhere else. He's so easy to talk to and so knowledgeable. I asked so many questions the first time I went and he gladly explained.
The experience was just okay. My wait time was very long, but the office staff was really nice. Dr. Khalil is fairly timid but polite.
Dr. Khalil is very thoughtful and thorough. Highly recommend! His office staff was also very helpful and kind as well.
Dr. Khalil was great! Had a great demeanor, answered all my questions patiently and thoughtfully, and definitely took time to explain my situation, his diagnosis and next steps.
I've been to three Dermatalogists prior to my visit with Dr. Khalil - all were terrible experiences. He was extremely patient, listened to me thoroughly and made sure that I was comfortable with his feedback. I'd highly recommend him!
Was in the waiting room for about 20 minutes after the start time of my appointment - the receptionist noted it was because there were no rooms open (as I stared at the open door of an empty room). After being brought in by an assistant and she got the basics, i waited another 25 minutes in the room until the doctor came in (at this point it was 2:45 - my appointment started at 2pm - and i got to the office at 1:50). Honestly, normally this office is so much better, so this was disappointing.
He was very personable, accurate and took the time to explain everything to me. Very much recommened.
Dr. Khalil and his team were absolutely lovely. They were patient, through, and helpful. Highly recommended.
AMAZING he is so kind caring and passionate about being a dermatologist. He explains everything so clearly and is so intelligent. He is my go to skin doctor now will recommend him to all my friends. The staff is also so nice warm and inviting everything was so smooth and quick!
Doctor Khalil is very knowledgeable and thorough. And his assistant is great—charming and professional.
Very nice and knowledgeable. No complaints.
Best dermatologist I have seen in my entire life. Very attentive and truly care about your health. I would highly recommend his practice.
My skin exam with Dr Khalil was good. Knowledgeable and friendly doctor. However I had to wait 40 minutes past my appointment time until he could see me, in a small and crowded waiting room.
A friendly medical assistant asked for some details about my visit before the doctor came in. I appreciated that she asked me whether there was anything else I wanted to ask the doctor about, making sure that he would be able to address all my concerns. I felt like they both took the time to listen to me and address each individual concern. I will back.
While my appointment with Dr. Khalil was satisfactory, I've had such a hard time communicating with his office. Maybe he is in a shared office? Even the pharmacist couldn't get ahold of them for weeks to get prior authorization on my prescription. Getting someone to call you back was hard, paying the bill was challenging... I wouldn't recommend this practice until they get their patient communication in order.
Very knowledgeable with a professional manner. Definitely recommend!
Dr Khalil and his assistant were great, very careful and very precise. I highly recommend this place
Dr. Khalil was wonderful! I came to the appointment for a skin screening, and brought a LONG laundry list of questions and issues I've been having that I wanted to inquire about. He very kindly and patiently took the time to address and answer each specific issue and provided a few recommended solutions. In the past when I inquired with other doctors about some issues that were becoming problematic (like hyperhydrosis - super heavy sweating, just to name one), they blew them off as not a big deal. Dr. Khalil listened, and understood, and came up with options. I would definitely recommend him!
He is truly an amazing doctor! Great bedside manner and would highly recommend.
The office staff was very pleasant and helpful. Dr. Khalil was great and patient with my million & one questions. Definitely recommend.
amazing took me right away! thanks!
Great - took time to explain everything - very thorough and not rushed. Very happy with the experience.
Dr. Khalid and his staff were very polite and professional. He helped me with my medical condition when another doctor could not. I would highly recommend him.
He listens, then recommends. He doesnt over medicate.
Dr. Khalil as well as his staff were all helpful, kind and calm - really made you feel at ease.
Nice guy and very knowledgeable
Very professional. Answered all my questions. Clean nice office. Will be back again (I hope not)))))))
Was seen quickly, the doctor didn't rush, and he gave me solutions for each problem.
I've been shopping for a great dermatologist for years and years, and I am so happy to have found Dr. Khalil. His bedside manner is among the best I've ever experienced, and he is very thorough in asking questions and providing instructions. He listens well, takes the time to figure out how to help, and never makes me feel rushed. Couldn't recommend him more highly!
Dr. Khalil, is very nice. He has great bedside manner, he is also receptive to your needs, the staff is wonderful,I would recommend a friend.
Dr. Khalil was great! He really cares and is involved with his patients
Dr. Khalil was so friendly, patient, and knowledgeable.
The wait time was not long at all and the office staff were very friendly and courteous. Before I saw Dr. Khalil his medical assistant came in to get information about my medical history and to document my reasons for the visit. When Dr. Khalil came in he only addressed one of the issues, looked at my skin and said he would prescribe something and said nothing else. Although the chart was in front of him he remained silent and stared at me until I kept glancing at the chart to remember what I had told his medical assistant about my issues. Pretty much I felt as though there should have been more communication between the doctor and the patient.
PROFESSIONALISM, ATTENTIVE TO THE PATIENT COMPLAINS AND POLITE.
Real convenient to get to by train. I came early since I was a new patient and had to fill out forms. The front desk was cordial and pleasant and answered all me questions. Dr. Khalil was pleasant and easy to talk to about my issues. His consultation was straight forward and to the point which I appreciate. I will look forward to my next visit.
Dr. Khalil was very thoughtful and attentive. He took the time to answer and address all of my questions and concerns. Highly recommend!
Great Visit. Professional and Personable and so we're the staff

Informative, professional, and really helpful!
He was very nice and courteous. Will go back to see him again.
Dr. Khalil was extremely professional and thorough. He diagnosed me within 10-15 minutes and made sure to answer any of my questions and concerns. He also was available for a few phone calls without my having to stop by the office to follow up with me after I got my prescribed medications. The office staff were all kind and attentive. I would return to Lumos Dermatology to see Dr. Khalil again.
I was pretty worried about seeing him as I haven't been to a dermatologist in a while. He answered all of my questions and was a pretty direct and strait forward guy. I will be coming back to him for all my skin needs!
Three words I would use to describe Dr. Khalil: Calm, Kind and knowledgeable. I presented a list of 3 different issues. Dr. Khalil took care of every single one. When there were different options for treatment, he explained them to me with lots of patience and answered all my questions thoroughly and honestly. I've been to many skin doctors through the years. He is definitely the best I've been to.
Dr. Khalil was great. Professional and knowledgeable. Would recommend.
Both the receptionist and Dr. Khalil were very kind and patient.
Dr. Khalil was personable and took great care of me. At one point during the session I felt light-headed and instead of brushing it off, treated me with respect as I came back to full strength. I would, and will, recommend him to all of my friends.

Great first time experience here starting with the lovely front desk person, and thorough physician's assistant and the doctor.

Dr. Khalil and his staff were very professional. I highly recommend them.
The appointment went really well! The front desk staff was very polite, and it only took 15 mins from the moment I walked in to the moment when Doctor saw me. Doctor Khalil was very friendly and professional. He addressed all questions and concerns, and spent good 25 mins with me. He also has very gentle hands and mild voice which made me more comfortable. Doctor also called me in the evening to let me know that he filled the prescription with pharmacy and advised on some details. I was overall satisfied with my experience and will definitely be back for a follow up.
My husband visited Dar Khalil after reading reviews on Zocdoc. He highly rated him so I went to visit him too and was very satisfied. He was thorough, attentive, listened to everything I said or asked and would highly recommend him to others.
His staff is the most efficient and friendliest I have come across in the city. Dr. Khalil was very kind and extremely knowledgeable. The Best Dermatologist office I have ever been to. I cannot recommend it higher.
Quick, nice, and really helpful. He said he can make my skin better and it gave me hope.

The Doctor was running an hour late - and the staff were extremely rude about it. His advice was mediocre
Great doctor! Really cares
The office was well appointed and had availability on the weekend. Dr. Khalil demonstrated a high level of professionalism and calm, while patiently going through my questions. The rest of the staff was also very kind and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment.
Dr. Khalil answered all my questions and concerns. He outlined a treatment plan and discussed all potential outcomes and alternatives. He made me feel assured and confident in his care. Overall a fantastic doctor that I'd recommend to anyone looking for a dermatologist.

Great experiences for a multitude of issues and different appointments
He gave me a clear diagnosis and prescribed me lotions that ended up taking care of the issue.
First visit. Great experience.
Small office, no more than a 10-minute wait. Smart young doctor who was thorough and helpful in his diagnosis and treatment options. A much better experience than the last dermatologist I saw in New York. Definitely recommended if you're looking for a new dermatologist here.
It was great, straight to the point. Highly recommended.
The receptionist and the assistant physician were kind, professional, and extremely helpful. The doctor asked the right questions, listened, and provided thoughtful input. Highly recommended!
