The medical professional who tended to me was very kind and gave me a number of options for treating my underarm infected hair follicle and wats to avoid it in the future. The extraction was as painless as one could hope for and I’m looking forward to a speedy recovery.

Only interested in cosmetic dermatology, not at all interested in general dermatological health. Rushes patients and talks over them. Terrible bedside manner. Little to no interest in explaining things in detail to patients or having any kind of emotional understanding of issues.

Made an appt with Dr. Zelaya very last minute, and he had reasonably good reviews on zocdoc so I thought it would be fine. I came in for a skin reaction I had from taking antibiotics and I swear this man did not even *look* at my skin before telling me I was wrong and that *I* had somehow picked at my own skin (? despite me telling him otherwise) and caused the rash. Proceeded to prescribe me more of the same antibiotic. I was infantilized and ignored - and I'm someone who works in clinical medicine personally as well, well-educated and perfectly capable of understanding any sort of clinical language but was treated as if I were a child. Very bad experience.

I got an appointment quickly, was seen quickly, and got friendly, pragmatic, and helpful advice. What more could you want? Also gave me free samples of a pretty expensive medication, which saved me a lot of money. Thank you!

One of the best doctors I've ever seen. Took the time to diagnose and talk through the issue. Didn't immediately shove a prescription down my throat, and instead spoke about limited medication use. Very personable and makes you feel comfortable. Definitely highly recommended

Receptionist told me I can have an earlier morning appointment. I arrive with one patient in front of me. Another patient comes in and is seen before. I advised the receptionist that was very unprofessional and she did not care. Brooklyn office has the worst front desk people. The doctor keeps replacing them.

I like the doc a lot, he makes getting prescriptions extremely easy, but ran 40 or so minutes late. He kinda rushed the appointment as well, but I do feel he gave me the attention my concerns required, if hastily.

Pleasant dr to talk with. Seemed knowledgable, listened to my issues, responded appropriately. The only negative is that the "delivery pharmacy" he recommended, RXPlus, was absolutely horrible to deal with.

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!
