It was my first time getting a consultation with Dr. Zeichner. The session was really quick and was over in amatter of minutes. I was expecting him to take some time to look at my presenting issue, examine it, diagnose it, and come up with a treatment course but it all took him 15 minutes. He was so efficient with all of it that he knew exactly what was wrong, knew exactly what to say, and exactly how to treat it. Woosh! Done. Highly recommend him.

Dr Zeichner is highly knowledge of many skin issues, having helped me beat adult acne. He also correctly diagnosed me with eczema, which had been misdiagnosed as warts by other derms. I would highly recommend Dr. Zeichner.

He was a bit curt, asked me how I think I received my condition and when I explained a timeline he cut me off clearly disinterested. Also, said I was the "easiest patient of the day"- well my condition isn't easy for me to deal hence I came in to get a prescription. None of this would have mattered much to me had it not been the mishandling of my prescription - I asked they call it in to a pharmacy so I know its ready to go once I arrive, and his MA/RN said it'd be called in late today after 5pm but I shouldn't have issues with the paper script in hand and should be ready to go. Well, the first pharmacy I went to said they were out of stock (Duane Reade) and second pharmacy (also Duane Reade) said the script did not indicate the dosage or length of time to use it so the pharmacy cannot fill it (!!). The pharmacy and I have called and left the doctor office multiple messages to call back with this, no reply for hours. Wish I had a better experience, but they aren't patient-centered, their behavior just shows they are focused on getting on as easily as possible with their day.

Wait time is not so long but diagnosis time is so short compared to wait time. Not sure if he really exams my face for diagnosis. He was recommended by my friend but I probably will not recommend him to my other friends.

Dr. Zeichner spoke to me for about 5 minutes, and wrote me a prescription without taking any time to answer my questions, look at my skin, or understand my concerns. Will definitely not be returning.

Zocdoc web site would not allow me to state the reason for my visit (not on the drop down). Also, since I knew what needed to be done it was unnecessary for me to take a time slot that was could not accomplish my goals (surgical recision).

Dr. Zeichner is very skilled and competent. However, I don't feel heard during the appointments -- I only had the chance to say 10-20 words, literally. It must be challenging procuring useful information from a patient to facilitate diagnosis, but I would encourage Dr. Zeichner to consider pushing himself on this front as there is highly useful information available from a patient's report -- information that surely can help with diagnosis and in developing a treatment plan.

Although I arrived late by 20 mins, the doctor agreed to see me right away. I received a free sample to try for my eczema and I asked for a written report about my condition to present to work and he kindly provided me with that as well. Dr. Zeichner listens well and makes sure that I am satisfied with the treatment.
