Verified Patient Reviews
She's very knowledgeable and compassionate! A pleasure to come see her, even though it's a doctor's office and that's not always where one would like to visit too often!!
Dr. Salvemini always gets it right with me, using the most conservative means of treatment. She has a friendly, professional "bedside manner" and is very effective in all that ails me, skinwise!
Great derm! Took her time examining my skin condition before recommending prescription, plus she gave other useful advice to help take better care of it. Only downside was the wait time - I ended up waiting over 30 mins past my appointment to see the doctor.
Very helpful and invested in informing the patient and answering patient questions. She spends a good amount of time with the patient and provides resources for further research and follow up info. Loved how invested she was in my personal skin care.
First time took a while which is normal. Fast and efficient work and had the right tools.
Dr. Salvameni is an excellent Dr. She is very thorough in examining and treating and caring. On the other hand , the Schweiger transition left a LOT to be desired. I couldn't fill out my history online because the password emailed to me didn't work. I had to call again and was told to arrive 15 minutes early. On arrival I was told the patient ipad entry was eliminated and I had to wait my turn to give my history to an assistant (which the front desk told me would "only take seconds"). I waited almost 1/2 hour. Than I sat with the assistant to answer questions some of which took some time...like what am I here for? I hope that my next visit will be facilitated with all the data in the system. Dr. S walked in before we finished the form.
Dr. Salvemini is pleasant, thorough, and informative.
Great bedside manner. Very thorough and easy to talk to.
Great doc. I depend on her
great staff, great atmosphere!
Very professional, gave me various options
Actual visit with Dr. Salvemini was great and helpful. I did not appreciate waiting an hour and 15 after my appointment time to be seen.
Dr Salvemini had been my favorite dermatologist of all that I've seen. I've recommended several friends to her already, and will continue to do so.
Dr. Salvemini was very thorough and i felt very comfortable with her. Although i did dislike the office policy of keeping your credit card info on file. Otherwise, a great experience and office staff were super nice and professional.
I've read reviews about her from my insurance's website and she sounded fabulous so I went out of my way to go to her. But I was pretty disappointed when I met her in person. She did my skin check out thoroughly but when I asked her questions, she really couldn't care less about my problems. And the office was really outdated.
Dr. Salvemini was knowledgeable and had excellent bedside manners. Looking forward to seeing her again for future needs.
Professional and thorough but in and out quickly.
Dr. Salvamini was professional, efficient, knowledgable, and warm. I felt I was in good hands!
Dr. Salvamini is an excellent doctor.
She was thorough and explained everything
Dr. Salvemini has always been professional, thorough and personable. The ability to view current conditions and review prior history on handheld devices was impressive.
Dr. Salvemini puts you at ease. She has a great bedside manner and informs you every step of the way.
she is the best
I used to see Dr Salvemini a number of years ago in another office until she left. When I learned from my internist that she was in Great Neck, I decided to see her there. The best, most thorough skin check! She explains things very clearly. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Salvemini is very friendly and easy to talk to.
She is an incredible physician, extremely knowledgeable and answered every question that I had! Very patient and good communicator.
I was happy to get an appointment with her at relatively short notice and was very happy with her professional accurate diagnosis. She was kind and personable.
Dr Salvemini was great. She has great bedside manner and she was very thorough at giving me a full body scan. The wait time was minimal. However, when I entered the office for the first time as a new patient, neither of the women behind the front desk greeted me. One of them was on the computer and the other was talking to a patient. I waited patiently for 15 minutes since I was early for my appointment and still neither woman asked me my name or who I was there to see. I finally approached them. I nearly walked out thinking it wasn't a professional atmosphere but another patient in the waiting room told me how great the dr's are and that the office is in transition as being bought by Schweiger. I'm glad I stayed.
The wait was long due to an upgrade in system. But the wait was worth it !!!
Dr. Salvemini was the first dermatologist I ever encountered since having skin problems since childhood that took time to figure out was going on with my skin. Very appreciative of her.
My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Salvemini for several years. We travel to Long Island from Staten Island just to be a patient of hers! Dr. Salvemini is very thorough and very pro-active in her body screening for skin abnormalities. I refer to her as "Eagle Eyes" as she has found skin changes where I did not suspect anything out of the ordinary and I wear my skin everyday! Of course that is her job, but she does it very well! Her bedside manner is comforting and reassuring. The wait time varies from 30-60 minutes, but if you build that into your day, Dr. Salvemini is worth it!
thorough exam, reviewed prior visits, always gives me feeling that I am important to her
She is a fabulous physician. I have been going to her for 18-20 years. Highly recommend her!
Total concern over my progress.
She is very knowledgeable and gives much thought to her decisions. She listens to what I have to say about what I am experiencing and takes it into consideration when deciding the best treatment for me.
Dr. Salvemini is very thorough and she requests and more importantly listens for your input.
Dr. Salvemini gives a very thorough exam..she is an excellent Dr.
