I came in for acne. I've been coming here a long time and I'm used to seeing the nurse Sean. I was surprised to see Dr. Zelaya as it had been a very long time. I felt like my appointment withhim was EXTREMELY rushed compared to Sean. He injected my cystic acne with cortisone and he missed some. I also asked him to inject some on my chest and he found a way to brush it off. I was pretty disappointed with the appointment cause I had to pay out of pocket cause my last appointment was less than 2 weeks before and insurance wouldn't cover it. I was desperate to get this cyst on my forehead down for new year's though. Sean is better.

Dont go there unorganized. They never gave back my Id and health card. I realize after visit the same day that I didnt received my id and health card. I called right away. Left aessage because the office was closed forthe day. No one can find it. Multiple people work front desk. Surprisely when I ask was in the copier/ scanner no it was never scanned or copied. So how was able to see the PA. Playing the run around with who worked the front desk. Call multiple time to see if it was mistaken given to wrong person or lost between file. Will be making a visit to see the cameras and front desk personnel fired. How do you lose some personal identification? Will be compensated. When asked if the personnel who worked front will be in tomorrow. They said “no” suprisely and conviently.

I met with an assistant instead of the doctor which he was very good and explained everything clearly. But if I make an appt with a doctor, I would like to atleast meet him. My appt 10am and I was seen by 10:10.

DO NOT GO HERE. Was supposed to get a shampoo but my insurance didn’t cover it and they told me to call the office if that happened. Called repeatedly over 3 weeks and eventually I got sent back to the pharmacyand they gave me the drops that I’d already picked up. Decided to leave it at that point because my follow up was in only a week. Figured I’d get more results with a professional in front of me. Had to reschedule my follow up due to work, they gave me a date, I repeated that date and wrote it down. When I showed up the office was locked up, called they told me my appt was the following day and that the Maspeth office wasn’t open Tuesday’s even tho they told me in previous phone calls that the woman I saw was only in on tuesdays/Thursday’s. Do not waste your time and energy with this place, the drs are decent but they need an organization overhaul

This office is a complete mess. Pay for Dr Zelaya, see a nurse practitioner. Prescriptions sent to an upper west side pharmacy who don’t work in your favor = awful service with prescriptions. Multiple phone calls to get issues resolved. Unbelievable. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.
