Long wait for a 5 min consultation which led to me being told to see an allergist, that I’m prob allergic to dust and to buy a humidifier and to keep doing what I’ve been doing

I have struggle to find medical care that is professional and has a high quality experience. So I’m glad I came here today and received service. The ladies at the front desk were very nice. After I filled out paper workI was taken in 5-10 minutes later. I was in and out within an hour. Quick and thorough. Highly recommend.

Waited over an hour even though I had an 11:40 am appointment. Then someone came in long after I've been waiting with an appointment scheduled after mine but because she complained about the wait the receptionist skipped me and took herin to see the doctors. This has been Incredibly frustrating andthe staff is very unprofessional. The doctors need to hire better help. Not coming back that's a certainty. It's so bad that I'm actually writing this review in the waiting room. The worst part of it all is that the dermatologists are actually really good, just not worth the wate. To make things worse I got a ticket for an expired meter. Note: I put 1:30 minutes in the meter.

Due to the Zocdoc guidelines I am unable to disclose the reasons for the negative feedback. As any discussion of the nature of the diagnosis or reimbursement is not allowed. Suffice to say I was very unhappy with their services.

Dr. Kriegel is an absolute professional and I am very glad to have gone with him as a dermatologist. We were hesitant at first as we had read some reviews which stated that there was a long wait time, however thiswas not our experience and we were seen within a few minutes of arriving. (I'm sure it helped to go through the online check in!) First time using Zocdoc and it was an awesome experience all around. Thank you Zocdoc and thank you Dr. Kriegel!

He was very approachable and knowledgable. Took time to listen. Took a mole off and sent for biopsy within first appointment. I am not good with needles and blood and he made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. I would definitely recommend him and his services.

I was mentally prepared about the wait time after reading the reviews but was still shocked to see 6 people ahead of me when I arrived on time for my appointment. Be prepared to wait for at least 60 mins. Itook me 75 mins before I was seen (the parking outside only allows 90 mins. I had to go back to add quarters). Someone (I think the PA or NP) came in to do the diagnosis first. The doc literally just came in for 2 mins at the end to confirm the diagnosis. While the doc was friendly and nice, I was really unhappy about the long wait which completely defeats the purpose of making appointment. The only reason I went was because this is the only in-network detematologist within 20-min drive from my apartment

It's a busy office but I did not feel rushed and he took the time to answer all my questions. He specializes in Mohs surgery and has the reputation of being one of the best in the country. Highly recommended. However,allow extra time if it's your first visit - they don't get any info from ZocDoc -- they give you a very old-fashioned "tablet" to type in your information - it is slow and very clunky. Took me 20 minutes to do what I could have done in 3.

wait time was too long. a 10:45 appointment taken at noon is really bad! I make another appointment with a doctor at l PM and was late for that because of it. My whole day spent between 2 doctor's appointments-not good! Angela

Dr. Kriegel was friendly, professional, prompt and obviously knowledgeable. While I can't say I *enjoyed* the visit -- as I was having a small growth removed for testing -- it was as good as it could have been. I would happily refer Dr. Kriegel to friends and family.

He kept me waiting an hour and then spent less than a minute with me. He advised me to come back for a check-up in a few months which is what this visit was meant to be for. I'm not sureif I should criticize this doctor specifically because almost all doctors seem to treat people like this these days. I can't bring myself to give him a good review either be a use I feel so badly treated. If you have all the time in the world to wait, this guy is about as bad as all the others so you may as well go to the one that is closest.

Since I was the very first patient to be treated at this location, I can't really comment on the wait time or overall efficiency of their office. That said, I found the staff to be knowledgeable and welcoming. Dr Kriegel isan expert in the field (also operates out of NYC) and I strongly encourage anyone in the Westchester area to visit this office if you're in need of top-notch care.

Dr Kriegel was excellent. He took his time and was very thorough and explained what he was doing very well. The office was somewhat disorganized and I had to wait almost 40 minutes after my appointment time despite having arrived 30minutes early. The staff members that check in the patients were arguing amongst themselves which was awkward for the patients waiting. Overall, I would definitely come back because of Dr Kriegel. It would be nice if the office staff were more organized/professional.

The office could get themselves a little more organized with information and don't really need to be carrying on personal conversations for the 6 or so people in the waiting room to here (if I have been a patient there forsome time and visited 6 months ago, why should I have to write my credit card info including the security code again and why should I have to fill out the form again about my lack of interest in having botox, leg veins treated, etc). Other than that, pretty good.

Dr. Kriegel has a calm, gentle demeanor. Thankfully, he doesn't insinuate I should inject my face with any kind of plumping elements, but I'm sure would be detailed in his explanation should I inquire about this. In addition, he biopsied asuspicious mark on my arm that another doctor disregarded. I felt this was very thorough on his part.
