Very friendly office staff and Dr. Zelaya is very professional and caring. He's thorough albeit a little scattered (rushing to see many other patients). I appreciated that he gave me a follow-up call to discuss my lab results.

Doctor Zelaya was very helpful and matter of fact. No frill approach which didn't really match up with the fact that I was in his waiting room for an entire hour before getting called in. Time management is not his forte

Loved my visit with Dr Zelaya, he listened and addressed all my questions and concerns. He's so nice and welcoming, I felt very comfortable and the office is nice and comfortable. He gave me options for little to no cost rx medications to treat my skin issues since my insurance has a nigh rx deductible. I high recommend if you need a new dermatologist.

Dr Zelaya is one of those docs I wish I could have for everything. He's patient, kind, looks you in the eye (sadly that seems to be rare in healthcare!) and doesn't rush you. It's always a pleasure seeing him. Highly recommended.

Dr. Zelaya is always professional, thorough, courteous, and he clearly knows his stuff. He never tries to sell you on discretionary and aesthetic options, though they are available. I've been going to see him for years and he's been consistently all of the above since my first appt. with him.

I accidentally made my appointment for the NYC office and when I realized this and called they quickly rescheduled me for the Brooklyn office without a problem. The PA (Kate) was on call since Dr. Zelaya was in his NYC office. She was awesome. Professional with great "bedside" manner.

Dr. Zelaya has a sunny disposition. His office is clean and orderly. I arrived about 20mins early for my appointment and was seen within 30 minutes. He took his time with me, but towards the end when he was telling me what my next steps would be, it all felt very rushed. I had questions that were both medical and administrative in nature. He was speaking to me as though I knew how everything was going to go or as though figuring it out wouldn't be a big deal. I worry at times and what I needed most towards the end of the appointment was for the doctor to make sure all of my questions were answered adequately before leaving the office. I don't think this is an unreasonable desire.

Beware, ZocDoc patients! This office is overburdened. The long wait times (over an hour each visit) are bad, but I was willing to overlook them for excellent treatment. It's only after the office refused to answer my multiple calls regarding concerns with my treatment regimen that I sought out another dermatologist. I'm now finally being treated appropriately, but have been suffering from perioral dermatitis for over two months now, and have been using steroids prescribed by this office which actually intensify the dermatitis! Your skin is too valuable to be treated casually- book elsewhere.
