“I find Dermatology personally gratifying” says Dr. Hellman. “I come in contact with many people on a daily basis, which I enjoy tremendously. It also allows me to utilize the fine motor skills which I developed during my musical training in performing surgical and aesthetic procedures of all kinds. I especially enjoy helping my patients improve their appearance in relatively short periods of time, boosting their self-esteem, and giving them the confidence they need to feel that they can go out and conquer the world. This is the greatest gratification a physician can hope for.”
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Hellman is probably my most favorite doctor :) Not only is her staff super nice and accommodating, but Dr. Hellman's knowledge accompanied by her dry sense of humor and wit makes every office visit feel like I'm more than just a patient!
Wonderful, as always!
Dr. Hellman is professional, friendly, thorough and answered all my questions. I'd definitely recommend her if anyone needs a dermatologist.
Dr. Hellman is kind and very honest. She answered all questions truthfully and explains the possible outcomes of the procedure to ensure its worth your time.
Amazing as always! Fantastic doctor!
Dr. Hellman was wonderful and efficient in our appointment. The wait time was a little bit longer than I anticipated, but the staff was apologetic and friendly.
Dr Hellman has been my dermatologist for several years and I love her. She has a great personality, beautiful clean office, friendly staff, and great technology.
Dr. Hellman is very personable and professional. She took her time with me and listened to my concerns.
She's great!! Love her personality and attentiveness. She was also very patient with me. I haven't done any procedures with her yet, but I will tomorrow.
the way every doctor's office visit should be...perfect.
Dr. Hellman was very thorough. As someone with very sensitive skin but loves the outdoors she was sure to check on every mark I questioned. She also helps me with my rosacea. I also use a few of her own products, which she introduced to me to help with the redness on my face. Love it. I have seen her 3 times now and will continue to go back.
Dr. Hellman and the staff in the office were all very warm and comforting. I hate going to any doctor and they made me feel like I could go everyday. Quick and efficient, but thorough and attentive. I waited about 15 minutes, but was apologized to after five and assured it would only be ten more minutes.
Judith is a highly skilled doctor. You know immediately that you are in good hands. She's relaxed, a good listener, courteous. Besides that she has a very cool staff that attend to your needs without hesitation.
Waited over 30min and don't feel she listened or had any helpful recommendations. The cream prescribed has had no effect after a month of regular use.
Had a very good visit --
Dr Hellman seems very knowledgeable. However, her bedside manner is very quirky and is not for everyone. She made me uncomfortable by making a comment on my medical condition telling me to "count my blessings" because it could have been worse. I think it's inappropriate to say that to a patient. Also, the first time I went to see her, I waited for close to 2 hours. Luckily, it was my day off. On the plus side, her office staff is extremely nice.
Very personable, she is a great Doctor. Prompt, polite and well informed office staff are joy to talk to/deal with. Office is clean and the views wonderful.
The best dermatologist in NYC!
Dr. Hellman was great. Office is clean and her exam room overlooked Central Park! Office visit was efficient.
Dr. Hellman is such a wonderful doctor. Her bedside manor is wonderful and she also answers your questions completely. I highly recommend Dr. Hellman.
She spoke to me as if I was a child. I don't need to be lectured but rather supported
Great, experienced, trustworthy doctor. I appreciate so much the care she's given me, and treating my case individually rather than instantly pushing pills as other derms have. Thank you!
She is the best! Competent, caring and cool!
I understand why my doctor recommended Dr. Hellman and why she's so well reviewed here. Great bedside manner and Rhoda is very welcoming at the front desk. Minimal wait considering how late in the day the appointment was and I got quick and appropriate resolution to my concerns. I'm pleased to have a new dermatologist and will be back.
She is not interested in you unless you are aged female who wants to do plastic surgery
She's amazing. Finally found my doctor in NYC for dermatology.
She was very easy to talk to and answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable with her and she didn't just try to sell me product like a lot of NYC doctors. Very high tech machines. If i could afford it i would get her suggested treatments, I Highly recommend :)
Dr. Hellman was terrific. Loved her.
Very knowledgeable and confident in her assessment. Wait time may have been longer than usual due to an emergency need of an older patient. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
Despite filling out all of my paperwork through ZocDoc they still needed me to fill out another set of paperwork. Not a big deal, but I did everything ahead of time to have a shorter appointment and save them time as well. That being said the appointment was done quickly and professionally in a friendly manner. Absolutely incredible view of Central Park from the 10th Floor.
Dr. Hellman is fantastic. She knows her stuff, she gives excellent advice, she works quickly and the results are beautiful.
Let me start this off by saying I chose this office on short notice, but it seemed to have good enough reviews. I noticed some less than flattering reviews, but I figured people may have just been a bit bitter if the doctor couldn't perform any miracles for them. I should have taken the hint. Getting to the office was very quick and easy. There was not a long wait, but the receptionist made a big deal about having to call my insurance to figure out if I have a deductible. I get it can be annoying, but come on. You told me once that I should know these things, but the following 3 times were just unnecessary. I laughed it off. No big deal. When I got in to see the doctor, she was initially very nice and personable. I was seeing her about an acne problem that I have faced for a majority of my life. I was expecting her to ask when it started to flare up again, what my hygienic routine is like, what products i'm using for it, etc. But none of this was even brought up. She almost immediately came to the conclusion that laser treatment (her specialty and not covered by insurance) was likely the only effective course of action. She asked me to show her, so I took off my shirt. I have several tattoos which I am very proud of. As soon as she sees them she says, "I can remove those." I told her they represent my family amongst other things and they mean a lot to me and am not interested, but she had to get in a few more comments about people changing their minds etc. That rubbed me the wrong way, big time. So she actually looks at my back and tells me that I should get injections. It was only after I asked her why that she told me it will make the redness go away. Not for nothing but that goes away in a week and I don't need an injection to do it. Just seems unnecessary. So I told her that I was hoping she could help me with something topical. At this point she all but said topicals don't work and aren't going to do anything to help. It's either the injections or (you guessed it) the laser! She even had the audacity to tell me I should ask my family members (you know, those people so near and dear to me represented by the tattoo she keeps harping on me to remove) to each cover one of the laser treatments! UNBELIEVABLE! When I once again told her I'm not interested, that was basically the end of the appointment. I had to ask her again if there was ANYTHING topical I could try, so she quickly wrote a scrpit and that as that. It seemed to me that the doctor was only trying to push her preferred treatments. There was virtually no flexibility, and I really did not get the sense that she actually cared about my problem or wanted to help. It was more about selling me on coming back for treatments. If you're going here for cosmetic purposes, I'm sure she is great, but for something more medical in nature I would DEFINITELY find another office.
Dr. Hellman was wonderful. Not only is she great at her profession her bedside manner is one of the best I've encountered. Will definitely use her for any other appointments I may need
I would definitely refer family and friends to Dr. Hellman. Waited no more than 10 minutes. She was very professional, and informative about my options. Staff was also great, very welcoming.
I have been going to Dr. Hellman for 16 years. She is smart, thorough, and kind. I have never felt rushed- for that reason sometimes she runs a bit late- but it is well worth it for her undivided attention. I have seen her for primarily for regular medical dermatology but have also had aesthetic treatments and bought products from her skin care line. She is excellent in every way.
Staff was welcoming and polite, unlike other medical facilities I have visited. Dr. Hellman was quite friendly and informative. She took her time with my visit and answered all questions.
Wonderful. Professional. knows her job. You feel great around her!
Very good. She's a charming woman, who know her stuff.
She has been my dermatologist for close to 10 years and I have always found her to be an excellent doctor.
Always friendly and professional.
Beautiful office, friendly staff, and the doctor was extremely helpful. I will definitely return.
Dr Hellman is an excellent dermatologist, and is very attentive and caring. Highly recommended for cosmetic and general dermatology, especially laser treatments.
I went to this doctor to freeze a wart - something that could be done with an over-the-counter kit. This visit was not useful and I wouldn't recommend this doctor.
I arrived early. The office staff was professional and friendly and I would recommend Dr Hellman. She did not think my concern about an out of control bump was silly and treated it on the spot. It was removed sent for a biopsy, which I would have requested but she was on it! Thank you Dr Hellman
Dr Hellman is an excellent dermatologist, very knowledgeable and has a friendly, caring staff. She is great with lasers, and also took care of unwanted moles and lesions for me and really cares about her patients. Her passion is also acne treatments and fillers. She is truly a breath of fresh air in NYC!
Dr. Hellman is a very good doctor and has an great bedside manner. She is a lot of fun - vibrant and funny. Her staff is wonderful - so helpful and friendly. However... I've seen Dr. Hellman 2 - 3 times and have waiting over 1/2 hour each time. This past appointment, I felt very rushed and it was obvious that she was as well. Sadly, she spent more time selling me treatments and products than looking at my skin. When asking about a spot on my face, she replied that it was just an 'ugly spot.' After my last appointment, I will probably not come back.
fast,did not have to wait long .
Dr. Hellman put me at ease right away, listened to all of my concerns, and provided excellent advice.
I'm on the fence about my visit. She gave me 3 prescriptions and if they help then I guess she did her job. However, I have a lot of tattoos and once she saw them she immediately told me that she can remove them. I told her I don't want them removed. I love them and I got them because I love them. She just kept trying to sell me on her tattoo removal. So, I guess she rubbed me the wrong way and didn't listen to what I was telling her.
great doctor, great staff and I always have a very pleasant visit.
Felt like I was being sold to ... didn't like vibe at all.
Over all a good experience though her approach is not typical. For the body exam she had me disrobe while she and her assistant (female) were still in the room. Once I realized they weren't leaving, I adjusted to the idea. And really I didn't mind, but it was unusual.
Excellent cosmetic and general dermatologist, warm and friendly office, great selection of lasers and services. I was very pleased with care and doctor's bedside manner and treatment.
professional & friendly reception staff. very clean and well kept office environment with gorgeous view of central park. my visit with Dr. Hellman was not rushed at all and my concerns were addressed.
She's very good at what she does. I've been seeing her for 10 years and I've never had a problem. She takes the time to answer all of my questions, which is hard to find these days!
The office was very nice- as was her staff. They stayed late for me because I was running late from work. Dr. Hellman was very nice and sweet, but I found the visit non-informative.
She is the best and my favorite Dr.
A true professional. I thoroughly enjoyed my office visit with Dr. Hellman. I highly recommend her.
I haven't seen Dr. Hellman in a year due to my schedule, but I made an appt for next week and except the same exceptional service that she has delivered in the past.
Great visit. Dr. Hellman was very knowledgeable and gave me great advice, and on top of that, she was very kind. Will definitely be back.
Funny and to the point. Great doctor looking forward to seeing her again.
Dr Hellman and her staff were awesome! Everyone was incredibly warm and friendly. I was out of there quickly, but I never felt rushed - she really listened to me and took time in examining and giving a diagnosis. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!
Terrific. Personable and professional.
It was great; I have no complaints. The wait was reasonable, the staff and doctor were professional and courteous and the purpose of my visit was met.
Dr. Hellman is exceptional. She is thorough and professional. She explains things to you carefully and gives you all your options. Love her!
The waiting room is very clean and bright. The physician's assistant checked me in within 5 minutes of waiting and gave me paperwork to fill out. I'd filled out most of it on ZocDoc, already, but I arrived a little early, just in case. The exam rooms are beautiful and the PA came in during the appointment to take notes. Overall, a very good and easy consultation. I was happy with my prescription and made a followup appointment.
Dr. Hellman is very friendly and knowledgable. She gave me an effective prescription that cleared up the issue right away. Highly recommended.
Very personable. Good advice given. Felt very comfortable with what she recommended.
She became family instantly! The best dermatologist I have graced my presence with! She has the best attitude and advice ever.
Seemed like a good doctor, but waiting for an hour for a 5 min skin screening was exasperating.
Very effective. I had these rash on my back periodically. I have tried at least 5 different cream, and had to get cortisone shots. I visited Dr. Hellman prescribed me cream that worked effectively.
Dr. Hellman was excellent - understood my concerns and didn't try to oversell me on cosmetic procedures and products.
She is the best. Very to the point and knows her stuff.
The staff at the front desk were extremely friendly and even took the time to explain my deductible to me. Dr. Hellman was welcoming and deliberate, instead of intimidating and rushed, like other doctors I've encountered. We met for about 10 minutes, and she took the time to not only discuss my symptoms, but also address different ways in which I can prevent them from coming back, aside from just taking certain prescriptions. I would definitely recommend her to others.
She's great but I had to wait 45 minutes before she saw me and then no apology whatsoever for being late.
She was very nice, friendly, I didn't quite feel that I got my time/money worth as far as information and solutions go. It was just kind of "ok write her a prescription" and have a nice day. I would have like to know more about what I could get over the counter, more in depth about why I am breaking out, what to do not do, not just he typical "Dont pick" that I read in magazines and online.
I love Dr. Hellman. She is very friendly and professional. She listened to my needs and I thought she was very thorough. I will definitely be using her as my dermatologist!
She is great! Very thorough and compassionate
Very informative- gave me options and was a pleasure to be around personally.
Dr. Hellman was wonderful!
It was OK. I need to try the medications that she recommended for longer before I know if it works. Otherwise, she was very nice and professional, but the wait time was definitely too long for me.
I haven't gone to anyone else since moving to New York! She's the best! She and the staff are super warm & friendly, and always make me feel at home!
She's smart, thorough, and personable. Will only use her from now on and will refer family and friends.
Reception staff was not very impressive - seemed a bit disorganized and asked me the same questions multiple times. Waiting time was 30 minutes which I was not thrilled with. Judith, however, was wonderful. She recommended a few items for my breakouts and gave me a prescription; she mentioned I was using the completely wrong approach to my skincare, but didn't try to push any products. She was extremely likable and easy to talk to. Let's hope her recommendations work too!
She sort of brushed off my concerns and statements and made her own conclusions without hearing me out. Despite what I was describing, it seems that she made up her mind and was ready to conclude my session. I didn't bother talking more despite only being there for 10-15 minutes in her office.
I made a last-minute appointment with Dr. Hellman for today. She was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and very very thorough. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
I will be seeing her again she was great!!! My new Doc for sure
Thought she was very friendly. She spent the majority of the visit trying to sell me additional services rather than addressing the issues that I came in to ask about.
Ok Hope I get better soon
One of the receptionists was really nice, but the other was a little more coarse and didn't seem to understand how to process my insurance information. In the end, it seems they got it right, although I waited for almost a half-hour. Dr. Hellman was very cheerful and nice, but thorough and straight forward. I will be going back to her.
She was very thorough and very kind. Excellent bedside manners. I highly recommend her. I didn't have to wait long and her secretary was awesome and very caring.
She is a very caring, well educated woman, who is out for the patient’s best interest, and does not try to sell you on unnecessary services. She is very warm and kind, I would recommend her.
She has such a great personality and makes you feel very comfortable. I highly recommend her!
She's was great compassionate n understanding took the time to hear my issue.. I felt very comfortable n secure .. happy I met her ;)
I made an appointment with this doctor for a second opinion to rule out a more serious skin disorder after the first dermatologist I saw gave me just topical cream and said it was just dry skin. During the 1st appt, she spent less than a minute looking at my skin, said she would bet a large wager that its not the serious skin condition I was worried about and asked me to return after 3 weeks of no medication (essentially to discontinue the topical cream the 1st dermatologist had prescribed). At the 2nd appt 3 weeks later, she spent less than a minute and blurted "it could very well be the serious condition you are worried about, but I am not sure". I was devastated and she prescribed another topical cream and wanted me to come back after a month. I set up an appt with a 3rd doctor, who was very patient and explained that it wasn't anything serious after a thorough inspection. After 2 months, the condition is all but gone. For Dr. Hellman to go back and forth without a thorough inspection or diagnosis is appalling. I am not sure if any good doctor would tell a patient that they might have a serious problem if a) they are not unsure b) the patient came in worried about having that problem. Being a good doctor is also about managing communication with the patient and providing thrm with a sense of confidence. If I were in her position, I would first take all necessary steps to completely rule out anything serious before I ever say it might be a big problem. Never again will I visit this doctor or recommend her to anyone.
Very humble. Listened to all the concerns and the medication started working within a week.
Great experience. Wait was about 25 minutes, but it was worth it. Dr. Hellman was very professional and courteous, warm, and the appointment didn't feel at all rushed. The wait is a small price to pay in order to have a good dermatologist pay full attention to you! Office staff was all super friendly, office view was phenomenal too. The waiting area is a bit small and it could feel crowded when full, but there weren't many people waiting when I was there. Overall, great experience, doctor seems pretty knowledgeable and hands on, didn't push any products or try to sell anything. Highly recommended.
Dr. Hellman was great - very professional and provided excellent care. Non-judgmental which is rare for a NYC dermatologist. The office staff, however, are awful and don't know how to keep appointment times. I waited over an hour and a half for my appointment which was unacceptable.
Was lovely - totally worth the wait!
The appointment was on time, and Dr. Hellman was very kind and professional.
She is very pleasant. I feel happy I finally found a dermatologist here in NYC I feel I will be at ease with.
Dr. Hellman is very kind, professional, and honest.
She is the most nice and knowledgeable dermatologist, I feel comfortable with her each time. I love this doctor..
Excellent bedside manner and she shooked my hand the moment she walked in.
Dr. Hellman was very caring and sincere. Made me feel as though she was on my side.
Dr. Hellman was on time, friendly and discussed my issues throughly.
My experience with Dr. Hellman and staff was very pleasant. She was really down to earth and I did not experience any pain with so ever. I am looking forward to going back for her to evaluate my skin.
Very kind and attentive. Didn't rush at all and took the time time explain. I will definitely return.
professional and efficient
Not very attentive.
Very thorough and nice.
I felt rushed, will not be returning again.
Very friendly and professional
I came because of my eczema, which I've had since I was a baby and it was worse than ever before. She looked at me with doubt, half-scoffed and said "how do you know it's eczema?" Then when she looked at it and agreed, she wrote me a prescription to an extremely expensive cream and that was it. She didn't spend any time with me, give me any tips on how to improve it, or provide any alternatives in case I couldn't afford the prescription she gave me (which I couldn't). Definitely not going back.
Dr. Hellman and her staff were great. Very nice and friendly and she really took the time to look at my issue and assess my situation.
Made to feel rushed and awkward. Won't be going back.
I was here from out of town but felt right at home with Dr. Hellman. She took care of the problem and got me out quickly, but did not rush me. I felt I was in very competent hands.
Dr. Hellman and her staff are amazing! They were so professional and welcoming to a new patient. Great experience. I will not go anywhere else for my dermatological needs!
Totally down to earth along with her staff.Seems to truly care too! I like her very much
So far so good. Booked my next appointment.
She was so sweet! I kind of thought she was adorable, completely put me at ease. Her staff was nice and she was great. There was a lot of skin rejuvenation available but no one was pushy about it. Plus a testament to them I think that there were several people checking in and out for things like microdermabrasion or laser with the estheticians. Very pleased with my visit and I will return to her.
Front office continues to be of concern. I was asked to come earlier than my appointment time of 6:00, then didn't see the doctor until nearly 7. I had to ask my boss to leaves the office early do that I could sit in a crowded waiting room. I also do not like being asked to pay for services before I see the doctor. Shouldnt the service be performed first and to the patient's satisfaction?
Always super professional, current and reasonably priced.
I found Dr. Judith Hellman online (I recently moved to New York and was looking for a nearby dermatologist) and, since I didn't know any of her previous patients, I wasn't sure what to expect. The office was really nice, and the receptionists were super friendly! The waiting time was maybe 5-10 minutes, but the receptionists kept me busy with conversation. Dr. Hellman was super friendly, funny, and had a great personality! I've seen many dermatologists, but really enjoyed going to Dr. Hellman! I just booked appointment number 2! :)
Dr. Hellman is fantastic. She takes the time to talk with you and get to know the patient. I arrived a few minutes early to fill out my paperwork and was seen right on time. Highly recommend.
I felt that more attention was given to sales of laser services than what I came for.Dr Hellman is caring but has a forceful manner. I felt unheard so I went to another Dr.for my follow- up.
This was my second appointment with Dr. Hellman, and I was seen immediately. She really makes going to the dermatologist a delight.
I went to see Dr. Hellman about a small rash on my neck. I waited an hour for my appointment to then feel slightly rushed whilst in it. I left not asking everything i needed so I quickly ran back in to double check on something. She was kind enough to see me again for a few minutes. When I expressed my issue she then said I was fine and what I should worry about was the wrinkles in my forehead and that I should get botox. I am a 32 year old female. I take good care of my skin. I have never been more insulted. I went in for a completely different issue and was told this. I am not even going to take the cream she prescribed, especially from someone who pushes something as unnatural as botox to someone my age. I will never go back there and will never recommend her to anyone. Completely inappropriate.
She's a sassy Hungarian doc. Liked her a lot!
Her bedside manner was horrible and I felt rushed through the whole appointment. When I asked her about solutions for my skin issues, she told me to visit her website and see what products she sells and I can come back AGAIN to discuss. Isn't it the doctor's job to diagnose? I will never go back--it was an awful experience.
My visit with Dr. Hellman was absolutely wonderful. She is incredibly kind, very sociable, and made me feel welcome and comfortable throughout the appointment. She clearly articulated the different treatment options and helped me make the most appropriate decision. I will certainly revisit Dr. Hellman for any subsequent Dermatology appointments.
Dr. Hellman was great, she alleviated my worries regarding a mole I was concerned about and removed another one right on the spot. Very nice, professional with a great sense of humor. Happy I found a great derm!
Very thorough- she was running a little behind but she spends a TON of time with you so it's worth the wait. Very frank and easy going. Gives you plenty of options and is careful without being excessive. Good at walking you through the pros and cons of different treatments
This doctor is completely amazing. She took care of my problem right away! She showed me tender care the way a mother would. She was sweet, passionate, and very attentive!
Looking forward to my follow up with Dr. Hellman. She was great during my examination and gave me simple instructions until the next appointment.
I waited about 10 minutes in the waiting room. Dr. Hellman was very friendly and professional. She seems to be very efficient and straight forward with with her practice.
She was great wait time was about 30 minutes. Office was really clean. Will be back in 2 weeks
I am a new patient and looking forward to her work. And the VIEW is amazing!
Dr. Hellman is a very nice dermatologist. She is the first dermatologist to examine other areas of my body for problem areas other than my face and actually explained to my why I'm getting my acne. Although it took less than 10 minutes to actually see her, the office is very nice with giving out samples and coupon cards if you don't have insurance.
She is a very friendy And profesional doctor with the highly skills in her field!
Great doctor but the wait was excruciating.
Beautiful and clean office, friendly and helpful staff, wonderful doctor!
Wasn't helpful, and seemed confused why I would ask for advice on skin protectors. Won't be back.
Dr. Hellman is not familiar with african american skin. She told me one thing when I clearly knew it was the exact opposite. She was pleasant and really sweet. I did not like that she was pushing her nonsense products on me. I bought one cream to get her off my back.
She pushes her products on you, which gets annoying. I didn't get a very helpful vibe at all.
I would not recommend this dermatological to anyone. To start off the waiting area was VERY small I had to keep moving out the way in order for people to get pass. The office looked like it was under renovations, there was dust in the waiting area which I found interesting being it was a dermatologist office. However Dr Hellman was friendly but she spent less than 4 mins with me because she had so many patients book at the same time. She didn't even ask me if I had any other concerns. And I found it odd that there was a coffee maker sitting on top of the counter next to the syringes. The only good thing about this place is the friendly staff.
Staff was professional and helpful, Dr. Hellman was very attentive and listened to my concerns. She is very knowledgeable and did not push me to buy any of her products (although they're great and are recommended!)
Very nice and professial. Would recommend to a friend.
Very nice and helpful.
She's very friendly and so is her office staff. Will be paying her a follow up visit in 2 weeks to get a dark spot on my face re-checked.
The staff was very nice. Judith was very thorough and was so nice. I highly recommend her to every one.
She was wonderful! Very caring,and listened to my concerns. She took the time to get to know me, why I was coming to her, and how she could best help. I felt very comfortable and at ease.
Great doctor. Amazing view.
Very approachable and fast fantastic view over central park from the office
Charming and competent.
She was terrific. Took care of my issues immediately and took her time explaining to me all my options. Very impressed.
Very professional, great overall service!
she is quick and professional. there was a suspicious mole on my back that worried me for a couple of months. she checked it, diagnosed there is a high chance it's pre-cancerous and removed it on the spot. will come again for a follow up appointment in her office.
Went in and waited for 5 minutes until I got seen, the doctor was very professional and knowledgeable. Clean office and well trained staff. Great overall experience, highly recommended!
I was a little bit disappointed since she seemed more interested in selling her own branded line rather than genuinely wanting to resolve my issues. I had to work hard to try to get her to recommend any over the counter creams or medication, even prescription and the reply to everything was, "we have our own product here for that". So all in all I felt more like I was in a spa rather than a doctor's office...
I went during lunch on a Thursday after having booked my appointment just that morning, so I was expecting to wait. I was pleasantly surprised that I was in and out of her office in 30 minutes and she took the time to really examine me and answer all my questions. Highly recommend!
I had some issues setting this up (they automatically rescheduled me for a time I couldn't do). We found another time the same day that worked but I did have to wait about 25 mins. Once I got in, however, Doctor was very professional and had very personable bedside manner.
I really liked Dr. Hellman, she listened, gave great advise and pinpointed my problem, yet the entire process was pretty quick in and out, which I appreciated.
After reading some very mixed reviews online I was a little hesitant to make an appointment with Dr. Hellman, but I could get in right away so I decided to give it a try. When I arrived there were a number of other patients waiting. I figured there must be another doctor working, because I was on time for my appointment. Unfortunately I was wrong. Her office is also being remodeled so there is dirt and white dust everywhere. Being that I have asthma I found it very hard to breathe. After waiting 30 minutes in the cramped waiting area I asked the receptionist how much longer. She told me just a few more minutes... 25 minutes later she told me the same thing ect. Long story short eventually after waiting a total of an hour and 40 minutes I was called back. Dr. Hellman only spent about 10 minutes with me and most of it was her trying to sell me expensive products and laser treatments that I didn't need. Waste of time and money!
Dr. Hellman is great. She has a good sense of humor and puts patients at ease. She is frank and upfront about treatment options and I'm very pleased with my experiences. I began seeing Dr. Hellman for a medical issue, and subsequently took her advice for treating some persistent acne. Sure enough,something that had bugged me for many years vanished within a week. The new office location is great, and staff extremely nice and helpful.
Dr. Hellman was very helpful and provided me with good advice. She is quick and efficient, and helped me take the next step in skin care.
It's my first doctor visit in New York City, so maybe it's just culture shock, but i thought the office was crummy and the doctor was rude.
Dr. Hellman is an excellent doctor; it is a pleasure to have an appointment with her.
She is great - knowledgeable but not condescending. Dr. Hellman was friendly and funny, she did a thorough skin exam, and offered solutions to pimples and acne scars I have on my face. She also recommended a better skin care regimen to improve my skin. The office is trendy and her staff was helpful and nice. Will go again!
