Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Neckman was very professional and personable - a really great experience - I would absolutely recommend her and go back if I ever need to!!
Great doctor!! Very attentive and patient in answering all of my questions and concerns. I feel lucky to have found her!
Dr. Neckman was great. Only complaint is about her staff, they are disorganized and have made ti hassle for me to get my prescription.
The wait was unusual and Dr. Neckman apologized profusely which was nice, and she explained why they were running so late (a good reason), so I don't want you to hold that against her. I went in for a consultation about pre-existing basal cell carcinomas and other suspicious looking facial lesions from 47 years of sun exposure. She answered all my (many) questions and took the time to explain my treatment options, what the procedures are like, the recovery times, and the varied outcomes and cure rates. Despite being over booked due to another Doctor being out, she took her time with me, and made me feel calm and relaxed not rushed. I gotta say, she really was fabulous in her bedside manor, thorough exam and intake questioning process, knowledge, and willingness to explain. I will bring my 3 year old son in to see her too.
This doc was awesome! Clearly knows what she is doing but also extremely personable and not overly stuffy/serious like many doctors. Actually enjoyed my visit!
Dr. Neckman is seriously the best dermatologist in New York. She is kind and intelligent and funny. She is very frank and does not perform procedures she deems unsafe or unnecessary. I recommend her to all my friends both for cosmetic and medical visits.
Dr neckman is my favorite derm in New York
Hands down, she is the best dermatologist!! She immediately puts you at ease, has amazing diagnostic skills and answers every tiny query with absolute patience. She is extremely comforting and has great inter-personal skills. Highly recommended.
She is stellar. Best derm I've seen for both medical and cosmetic visits.
Great doctor! I needed a dermatologist in the city who is update to date on new technology and information. Dr. Neckman was amazing and really took the time to work out a skin care plan and address all my concerns. She even took time to look at a burn I've had on my arm for the last 20 years since she knew I hadn't been to the derm in a long time. I will definitely be coming back to her!!
Dr Neckman is the best derm I've seen. She's smart and honest and also very easy to talk to. I've seen her both as a cosmetic and medical patient and I recommended her to all of my friends. She is trustworthy, kind and even funny!
