I was very happy with the amount of time the doctor spent with me. I had several skin tags and a large mole. The doctor removed all growths immediately. This was my first visit to a dermatologist. It was an excellent one and very professional. Thank you!!!!

He was very kind to my daughter, who is young and skittish with new people. But he and his staff were all very warm and welcoming. He also helped with our prescriptions to ensure we had something effective yet affordable. Worth our hike to the South Slope!

Aside from waiting a bit (which you'll encounter at most specialist appointments), the visit went very well. Dr. Zelaya was very straight to the point and wasted no time trying to find a solution to my problem. Him and his staff treated me very well and I would have no problem visiting again.

Dr Zelaya didn’t seem competent and seems to be a poor listener. I mentioned to him that a specific medication wasn't working for me but he still prescribed the same medication. Would not recommend.

Everything went super smoothly as always. Only thing to note was I booked a cyst removal via ZocDoc and it didn't come up in his system correctly, so if you need to book anything other than a general consultation you may want to shoot a note to the office to double check that it is correct.

This is not the place to go if you have an actual dermatological issue. It is obvious from the office, waiting area, and treatment rooms his bread and butter is Botox and women really want clear skin. He seemed uninterested in treating a skin condition. He spent less than 2 minutes gave, in his words, "an educated guess" and was out the door. He forgot twice to send the prescription to the pharmacy. Would not recommend unless seeking cosmetic services only.
