She was wonderful and very helpful. Able to answer all my questions. I love that she actually gave me a routine to follow and able to recommend a peel for my hyperpigmentation. She definitely gave me hope that my skin would get better

Dr. Strachan was very pleasant. However, you used a lot of medical terms that I do not know the meaning. If she could just explain a little more to help me understand my condition.

Honestly it's sad I have to give a bad review but I won't ever be coming back. The staff is wonderful but the doctor herself is just rude and careless. Time wasted. I don't want any treatment from her I rather treat my skin on my own.

The doctor was pushy with her suggestions. Instead of taking the time to explain her reasoning she seemed defensive when I questioned her prescription which after 3 weeks of use gave me a rash on top of the acne I was trying to treat. The doctor did not ask enough questions before prescribing an antibiotic at my first visit and only after my reaction to the gel did she realize there was another problem which she should have inquired about at our initial consultation. Not a positive experience for me. I've never had a personality issue with a doctor before and this sort of felt into that category.

My visit went smoothly but it was after that everything went wrong. It took me 2 days to reach the pharmacy that they suggested (has a delivery service). Now I am not sure if I will receive the meds today or tomorrow. All I can say is Thank God its not an emergency.

Everyone there was very nice, but the doctor spent very little time actually looking at my problem. She looked at it for a minute and then prescribed something and rushed out of the room.

Earlier today I had a seriously impressive first visit to Dr. Strachan's office. I came in because of a persistent issue that my GP was unable to give an accurate diagnosis to. Dr. Strachan looked at my issue, listened to my experience with the issue and unresponsive treatment (unfortunately, listening skills are sometimes a rarity with NYC doctors), and gave a very fair assessment and contextualization. I'll definitely be recommending her to friends.

Where do I began this is my second visit my first visit was literally 5 minutes she looked at my skin and gave me prescriptions that I should try moving forward I only received 1 of the 3 medications which I explained to her she then explained to me that I should try and contact the pharmacy which I had to call in my medications which I explained to her she then went on by telling me once she writes the prescription it's out of her hands which I understood she didn't seem like she cared what so ever I then asked her moving forward what should I do she then went off to explain I could buy aveeno and eucrine cream which I been doing it doesn't help everytime I spoke she just talked over me she then went on to say she can give me medicine that will require a xo pay and started telling me prices as if I was concerned about pricing it was a very uncomfortable experience she made me seem like it was about money as if I couldn't afford the required medications when in fact I have the top insurance plan and I am also willing to pay out of pocket if needed this was the first time in my 28 years that I felt discrimination not to mention from another African American women to wrap things up I was not helped and wasn't proscribed anything I wouldn't recommend anyone going to her she's not humble nor very helpful at all. The visit was approx less then 10 minutes BTW

Dr. Strachan was great, she gave me a prescription and said based on my symptoms, the medication should work well for me. She gave me an extraction on the spot, which I appreciated. I got a text from my pharmacy less than an hour later telling my my prescription was ready. Very efficient! I was 10 minutes late for my appointment and called to advise the office. The receptionist said that was fine. When I arrived, I waited another full hour to be seen. The waiting room was full, and I sat next to another woman who had arrived before me who voiced her frustration over the delay. It seemed the office staff overbooked Dr. Strachan for each appointment slot. My wait was more than 3 times as long as my actual time with the doctor. I was very late to work.

She, like many patients have said, has terrible bed side manner. She's very abrupt and rude. The team appointed at the front desk is also rude. Nicole was the only approachable staff member. I don't recommend going to new clients.

She was great! She was quick but knew what she was talking about. She was very nice and answered all the questions I had. The only thing that went wrong was that my prescriptions needed to be called in a second time to my insurance, but I don't think that was her fault. I highly recommend her. She even gave me a coupon for my prescription. Definitely going back.

Dr. Strachan wasn't very friendly. She seemed bothered by my request to see her and not the PA. She was also being a little indifferent when I attempted to explain MY skin/acne problems. She wasn't very receptive to me explaining the history of my acne and what products I've already experienced using.

Me gusta como me trataron desde el moment que entre hasta el momento de salir. Me atendieron en menos de 30 minutos de aver llegado, y me hicieron sentir muy bienvenida. La Doctora me trato muy bien y hasta me ayudo con un tratamiento que mi seguro no cubria. Creo que encontre mi dermatologa de por vida.
