Verified Patient Reviews
She’s the best! Highly recommend her....
I've been seeing Dr Tzu regularly for two years since I went in for a changing mole that turned out to be melanoma. I simply can't say enough good things about her, but I'll never forget receiving a personal phone call from her the day I had surgery with the oncologist she had referred me to just two weeks earlier because, quite frankly, I forgot to tell her office I had it scheduled and she was concerned. I'm pretty sure that says it all.
Dr Tzu is wonderful!! You do not need to search any further if you want the best!
Dr. Tzu is very professional and informative. She’s downright amazing! She gave treated me right away and was able to provide insight and possible solutions for my problem. She will definitely be my go to for all things Dermatology and l highly recommend her!
Dr Tzu is a great dermatologist. Very through and knows her stuff. However, this is the second time i have waited just over 30 min to see her. I think we all know what would happen if we were 30 min late. So just bear that in mind. The first few times I saw her I was seen within 10 min.
It was great except that nothing I needed done was considered medical. It was all considered cosmetic and costly.
She seemed to have an awful lot of contempt for her patients... she even scoffed at me for daring to ask about other possible reasons for my condition - because some things just didn't make sense.. and when medication doesn't seem to work, it seems wise to maybe try a different approach, but it seemed all she wanted was to get me in and out as fast as possible. The only reason I thought to go back to her is that I thought it would be the most efficient way to get my Rx renewed, seeing as she already wrote one for me (though, with too few refills.. for no apparent reason other than to make me come back sooner) - but now I'm seeing that she has zero availability for the foreseeable future (checked all the way into March). Annoyed that I have to start looking for yet another Dr, but considering how over-priced and unfriendly she was, it's probably for the best.
One thing I wasn't particularly fond of was not knowing that a CC was needed to see the doctor. This information should be on Zocdoc.
She is very thorough compared to past dermatologist I? have seen. Inquired about moles other doctors have questioned. The office is very chic for a doctors office and all that helped me were very p
Great bedside manner, very informative and to the point.
Excellent, caring doctor who diagnosed my issues appropriately
She’s amazing I would refer her to all of my friends. She explained everything to me in a simplified manner and true to her reviews online she is a very sweet woman. And her receptionist was amazing as well she was patient and answered any questions I had asked and asked AGAIN. Looking forward to me next appointment
I cannot recommend Dr. Tzu enough- after having so many mediocre experiences with dermatologists she is a breath of fresh air. I have had multiple surgical procedures with her- she is careful and thorough every time.
The doctor is really nice but the office and the computers were in a mess. The computers weren't working . I requested the office to send me the paperwork, so I could fill it but it was sent too late . I believe I waited about 80 mins or more to see the doctor.
Dr Tzu and the rest of the staff were great, offices are nice and clean, I'd definitely recommend them but bring a book the wait time is a little excessive!
Finally went in for a skin cancer check - easy and pleasant - highly recommended!
Dr. Tzu is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and amicable. I'm getting married in a month, and visited Dr. Tzu to try to tame my adult acne issues as quickly as possible. Dr. Tzu took the time to counsel me on all of the different options available, the risks associated with each, the costs/insurance coverage, etc. I felt very well taken care of, and am so happy I found Dr. Tzu!
I believe it would have been faster had I not scheduled a same-day appointment through ZocDoc and wasn't able to complete new patient information in advance. Outside of that wait, the office is very nice and very efficient. I highly recommend!
Great doctor, medical assistant and receptionist! Highly recommend.
My wait time was excessive but that was mostly because of insurance stuff. I suggest going at least 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to get all of the new patient paperwork in order. Doctor was nice, and informative.
Great, everything I wanted in a doctor's visit.
Dr. Tzu was very thorough. I came in for a skin screening and she took her time to looking at each mark individually (and I have a lot). I will definitely be back!
My first time doing an annual-skin screening. It was easier than I thought. You just put on one of the gown and she scan your skin, head-to-toe. Very professional and helpful. She prescribed a medication gel for my acne on face, as I didn't have any other issues. Def worth it!
I felt rushed the entire time, she gave me no informational paperwork, and there was not enough time to ask all of the questions that I wanted to ask. Her bedside manner was bizarre and off-putting. I felt like I was just another number to her.
Dr. Tzu is an excellent doctor listens very well and explains clearly, Staff are very professional.
Doctor was nice. Long wait time.
Dr. Tzu was very friendly and approachable. She made me feel comfortable and provided me with all of the information that I needed. Her staff was also very helpful and friendly. Overall, it was a great experience!
Dr. Tzu was extremely kind and careful with explaining matters regarding insurance and procedures. Great bedside manner, and was comforting while I dealt with my fear of needles. Her assistant however was aggressive, impatient, and unhelpful. Great experience with Dr. Tzu, but an unpleasant 75mins leading up to her meeting me in the room.
Dr. Tzu was highly knowledgeable and professional. All of her employees are sweet and helpful and I felt 100% comfortable and satisfied with her services.
I was really impressed by Dr.Julia's assessment and she answered all my questions patiently. The office is clean and well-maintained. The only minus was having to complete so many forms!
Waited for an hour only to be looked at for less than five minutes. Office was slow to follow-up with costs as well. I had to follow up myself.
Very professional office and pleasant staff. Would suggest arriving early for first-time patients because there is a fair amount of stuff to fill out, but the receptionist was friendly and helpful and I was seen relatively soon after finishing the paperwork.
The doctor seemed knowledgeable and was very kind and cool. The receptionist was also exceptional, she was on the phone with my insurance for literally 2 hours trying to sort things out and apologized to ME after even though it was clearly just because insurance companies are dicks and if anything, I was to blame. The office is also fancy and clean and immaculate. Highly recommend
Dr. Tzu was friendly, knowledgeable, and took the time to explain her diagnoses and recommendations. I felt very taken care of and comfortable with her immediately. The rest of the staff at the office were also professional, attentive, and warm. Highly recommend.
The nurse that met with me was very rude and abrupt, but the doctor was nice, she just seemed very inexperienced, nervous acting and like she was reciting out of a textbook. The whole visit felt uncomfortable.
Dr. Tzu is a real professional - she's thorough, kind, extremely competent and a terrific doctor!
It took time to complete all forms (35 mins +) for a first time visit. All else was great.
Waited for an hour to see the medical assistant.... the waiting time is riduculous.
Definitely arrive at least 15 minutes early to fill out all the paperwork. She's great, efficient, and kind. She explained all possible side effects of the prescribed medication. Her office staff are excellent and helped resolve all insurance issues.
I'd recommend Dr. Tzu and her team. Dr. Tzu was very knowledgable, professional, and answered all of my questions. I wish there was a way to complete some of the paperwork / registration in advance of the appointment. If you're going for the first time, try to get there an extra 15-20 minutes earlier to allow time to complete the registration process.
Had to wait a bit for them to approve the insurance. Once that was taken care of the appointment and treatment were swift and efficient. Bedside manner was wonderful
Dr. Tzu has always been thorough & attentive. She took the time to address all my concerns one by one. True professional. Her staff are courteous and efficient.
Dr. Tzu is very knowledgeable and patient, and I felt very comfortable with her. She did a biopsy on a spot that's been troubling me. The procedure was painless and her cut looks good. The office is also immaculate. However, I do not recommend her staff. The receptionist was easily frazzled and kept asking another patient for confidential info in front of 2 other patients. The exam rooms were not soundproof and as I waited painfully for 45 minutes on the couches with no upper backs, I almost left. The PA gave me confusing info about what's considered cosmetic, which seemed to be everything. Here, anything cosmetic comes with a consultation fee and she was unable to answer my questions. I had 2 other dermatologists on a different plan and their PAs would at least answer questions about their services. Fortunately, Dr. Tzu was a lot more transparent and informative about what she could do. Overall, everyone was very nice, but the logistics were incredibly frustrating.
I very much enjoyed Dr Tzu, but the office staff was incredibly unprepared and slow.
Doctor seems knowledgable and friendly, but the wait time is outrageous........I still gave a high rating because I want to see if it is a rare event or the wait time is always this long. Sometime we need to be forgiving.
It was good.
She is very good and polite. I had a proceedure done right there and was in and out.
She's extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to explain things to me before administering anything! She and her staff are very friendly and although they seemed busy, I feel like they weren't tilted by it.
Saw me right away, and was super professional and courteous.
I had skin rash problems. Paid for the appointment and waited and got to talk to the doctor for about 10 mins. She's nice but all she did was telling me that she thinks I have eczema and prescribed me topical steroid cream. I was expecting some tests to find out about what the actual problem is but there was none. Unfortunately the rash got worse and is moving from my neck up to my face. Trying to find another doctor now.
Very professional and procedural. Thorough in her work and asks good questions. Office is nice. Just a bit on the pricier side in my opinion, but that's on me for not clarifying what the expenses would be beforehand
I was referred to her to have an excision of atypical skin cells. She was amazing at explaining the procedure, skilled at the surgery and stitching me back up in her office. Her office was very professional in dealing with all my questions and calls after the procedure. The site looks to be healing great and her stitch mitigated the scar.
this is the kind of doctors office experience every patient is looking for - on time, courteous staff, knowledgeable and professional consultation and advice. Dr. Tzu is easily a "5-Star" rating.
The doctor was very kind, took her time and explained to me in detail her thoughts on my condition. It was a conversation in which she asked me many questions and I appreciate it that. I have been in doctors that when I leave I am so confused about what they said. Dr Tzu was very professional yet approachable and made me feel like I was in great hands.
She was really straight forward and thoughtful. You can see her brain working through real solutions when you ask questions. I went with a pretty delicate situation and she made me feel at ease. Her office is cute too.
Dr. Tzu is fantastic, Kind, great listener, very thorough, and very cordial, and incredibly smart and talented- just read her bio !Highly recommended! Also her office is spotless and convenient.
Great experience, very thorough and quick
Very thorough and knowledgeable.
My first visit for a random skin issue that popped up. She was very thorough and asked many questions about my medical history. It did not feel rushed at all. Hoping what she recommended works! I will go back and see her again .
Warm personality and excellent bedside manner. Would highly recommend.
My only compliant is why use zocdoc and allow me to fill out all the paperwork on there only to have my fill everything out again at the clinic. I thought the purpose of zocdoc was so I can save time on filling everything out when I am at the office. Other than that, the visit was great.
Great doctor, really made me feel at ease.
Great office, no waiting and very professional. Would definitely recommend!
I like the doctor, very cheerful and attentive. But I have to wait for 20 mi for set up and paperwork. The office didn't have any other patient but me, so I guess the waiting time just for admin work.
Very kind and caring, professional, very helpful.
Trying to find a great dermatologist in this city is daunting. Luckily, my search is now over. Dr. Tzu's credentials are great, her lab work is done by NYU, and she's personable. I didn't feel the rush/coldness from her staff like other reviewers here. They were all as great as Dr. Tzu. It's a busy office, so I understand why some people could mistake that for curtness. During the consultation, Dr. Tzu went to great lengths to explain what could be causing my condition(s) and explained every step of what she was doing. Definitely helped make me feel more relaxed (especially when she needed to do a biopsy). I didn't have to wait long at all but if I had to, luckily, the waiting room is pretty ritzy.
Dr. Tzu is great! She's friendly, timely and very clear with instructions, procedure options and pricing.
Julia is a super talented dermatologist. Always super professional and friendly, makes you feel very comfortable. I had a spot of skin cancer removed just behind my jawline, and the scar is almost undetectable, really impressive. I go back for frequent visits and check ups as I know I'm in good hands with her.
Disclaimer about my 4 star review about wait time. It was my first time visiting Dr. Tzu and you have to fill out a bunch of standard medical paperwork if it's your first time. Overall though it was a quick visit, very informative and the office is a nice environment.
The office was very clean and the employees were very nice and accommodating. Dr. Julia Tzu had great bedside manners and didn't rush me through any of my questions and ensured that everything was answered before I left the office, something that is quite hard to find these days when visiting doctors.
She is very personable and clearly explained every step of the process. She also provided details on what to expect post the procedure. I will definitely recommend her to others.
It was a nice office, I love the fact that it's not full of other patients waiting in the area. Dr. Tsu is very nice, she explained her treatments and recommendation very clearly, and she was very plesant to deal with. Highly recommended
Dr Tzu is very knowledgeable and informative. She was able to discern right away why my previous medication was not working worked with me to come up with a solution to my problems.
Dr. Tzu is thorough, professional and friendly. I would certainly recommend her, based on my experience with her so far (two visits).
Didn't have to wait at all. She was very nice, great first visit.
Very nice and chic office. Staff is courteous and Dr very professional and thorough. Only complaint is the long wait before actually being seen by the dr.
Dr. Tzu was great. It was my first visit and I thought she was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. Paperwork took a while but that is to be expected. As soon as that was squared away she saw me immediately.
Very professional and friendly, great experience overall
Julia was very professional and explained everything that she was doing. I could not recommend her enough to people! Very positive experience.
Energetic, friendly demeanor
Went for annual screening. Dr. Tzu was so friendly and explained everything she was doing.
Very nice and easy to talk to. Highly recommend!
She's pretty funny and cool. I decided they can be on my team.
Quick, efficient and through. Will go back. Longest part was the paper work. They tried to send it to me ahead of time but it was not working well. They were apologetic.
My appointment was at 9:15am and waited over an hour to meet Dr. Tzu (10:30ish). Very inconvenient. Other than that she's a nice, informative doctor, but appointments should be at the set time especially during work hours.
She was fantastic. Quick wait and really listened and cared to understand what has been going on. Still not entirely certain that the diagnosis is exactly spot on(will know more as I take my new meds) but was nice to a have fresh view on what may be going on. Also very nice and easy to talk to.
Over-priced. Ineffective billing.
The doctor was caring, patient and professional. The waiting time was longer than I expected. My appointment was at 3pm on a weekday, but I saw the doctor after 4pm.
I love her. Great find in lower Manhatttan.
It will take you a whole hour to complete paperwork and be seen by the doctor. Better have lunch at your desk ready.
Julia was great. Excellent bedside manner, willing to take time and listen to patients, knows what she's talking about, very confident and professional.
Great visit. Super informative.
Although doctor was a thorough professional- her medication did not work for me. I was very disappointed about it, plus they charged me twice for the visit ( once through my credit card and once through my insurance) It took them over 2 months to rectify it and it wasted alot of my time trying to call and sort it out with them. I would have been happy atleast if I found a cure for all the chaos ( i happened to go to another dermatologist last week and I see the changes in Just 5 days). This is my personal experience- might be different for others.
Wonderful doctor. , knowledgeable and personable.
Very solid doctor - very thorough and explained everything she was doing. Would definitely recommend and return!
I really liked this doctor and would definitely see her again. However, even though I told the receptionist twice that I really had a time crunch and needed to be back at work quickly, she was extremely slow at checking me in and I almost was late getting back to work.
Very thorough and pleasant bed side manner. Very positive experience
Julia and her staff were so sweet! the office is beautiful and clean and I felt very comfortable the moment I walked in.
She was absolutely wonderful! Very thorough and knowledgeable.
Doctor Tzu was great! Very polite and professional. Her treatment for my issue was also very good.
Dr. Tzu seemed like a nice enough person and was very professional as it related to the visit, however, the office demands credit card information prior to being seen, regardless if you are paying cash, have insurance, or an HSA account which makes you feel like a piece on an assembly line as opposed to a patient.
Dr Tzu was quick, professional, explained everything well and then performed a quick procedure painlessly and, again, professionally.
Outstanding all around. Convenient location and exceptional service!
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Julia Tzu very much! I went for an annual screening and from the moment I walked in, I was working on paperwork as a new patient and her receptionist was very helpful. The doctor was very patient and engaged in conversation while listening to all my concerns. She answered every question and offered follow up third party help for me. She removed two moles for biopsy and it was quick and painless. She has a motherly nature, very sweet, kind, but super professional and knowledgable. Highly recommend! Looking forward to my next visit! Also, this office space is beautiful, chic, and VERY clean!
She was great and very personable. She took her time with me and we discussed several possibilities for treatment.
She is super nice and helpful. I'm really happy to have found her!
The only dermatologist I will go to. Excellent doctor!
She was very informative. Professional on all levels and the atmosphere was delightful.
excellent very impressed over all never been to a dermatologist before staff very nice
She is amazing. Very friendly and professional. She listened to me really carefully and tries to provided the best help.
Dr. Tzu was friendly, helpful and very nice. I'm due for a follow-up to see test results in 10 days which was scheduled before I left. However, I wish they gave a heads up on when to arrive for a 1st time visit (i.e. 30 mins in advance) to fill out paperwork, get set up in their system, etc. as my appt. was for 9:30 am, but I wasn't seen my the doctor until 10:15am. Also, I feel its silly to have a pay another copay to get test results..not sure that the office can do anything about that, but frustrating nonetheless.
Dr. Tzu was the best doctor I've ever been to. She put me right at ease, thoroughly explained absolutely everything I needed to know, and was conscious of my budget when prescribing medication. I could not recommend her highly enough. Even if you're not close to her office, the subway ride is well worth the service you'll receive.
First time visit, but everything is very nice, highly recommend!
She was wonderful. I came in as a new patient, filled out the paper work, and was seen my the Dr in under an hr. She was extremely knowledgeable and gave me multiple options. Highly recommend her!
Dr. Tzu was very professional and extremely clear about terminology, diagnosis and treatment courses. She spent ample time with me, went over all of my concerns, and respond fully to all of my questions. She also did not push me to have unnecessary (and potentially uncovered by insurance) procedures. I arrived on time for my appointment, and waited for about 25-30 minutes.
This was my first ZocDoc appointment and I couldn't have been happier. I chose Dr. Tzu because I was looking a derm near my new office who is both trained in skin cancer prevention / surgery as well as able to do the cosmetic stuff (Botox, etc). Her office is really cute - very stylish with soothing music. Her office manager was very pleasant, straight forward and knew the paperwork inside and out. Dr. Tzu herself is great - took the time to get to know me, discussed everything at length, didn't make me feel rushed at all. She is very highly educated and clearly passionate about her work. I'll definitely be coming back.
Love Dr. Tzu!! Super sweet and attentive. Was not in a rush to get out like other doctors. Took her time to look at my condition and listen to every question I had. Overall great experience!
Great office, and great doctor. Found out afterwards that colleagues of mine had seen her too. All would highly recommend.
She was very professional, patient and understanding.
Dr. Tzu is the greatest! I really enjoyed my visit and the waiting room was also really nice. I was happy to fill out paperwork in such a great waiting area.
VERY PROFESSIONAL,AND CONCERN ABOUT PATIENT CONDITION.
I had a very thorough examination and she was extremely professional and knowledgable. I felt comfortable and she communicated everything clearly with me. She listened to my questions and made sure I was taken care of before leaving. Highly recommend.
Dr. Tzu was knowledgable and took time to explain what medicines she prescribed for my acne as well as why they are said to be effective. While this was great, I waited over an hour after my appointment start time…naturally frustrating. (Supposedly they were short staffed).
I highly recommend Dr. Tzu. She was professional and thorough yet friendly and approachable. She took the time to answer all my questions in a way that I could understand (non-medical speak). She treated my concerns and the results are great! I had some additional questions afterwards and she responded very promptly. Beautiful office and friendly staff. If you were to force me to say something critical, only point for improvement would be to have the option to complete paperwork prior to visit to minimize registration time, but other that, no complaints. What a wonderful asset and resource to have in the Downtown area! Will definitely be back if I have any other future skin issues.
She is an excellent Doctor!!!
My visit with Dr Tzu was excellent!
showed up early and still waited an hour to see the dr. great dr. slow service
Entire staff was extremely friendly, doctor was informative and efficient! Will definitely go back
Very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful!
With most of my doctors I always feel rushed. Dr. Tzu took her time and answered all my questions and explained eveything.
Very professional and explained very detailed. Need to observe a few more visits to really rate how good she is.
Dr. Tzu was very thorough and answered all my questions. She had great bedside manner and was very detailed. I would recommend Dr. Tzu.
Really thorough examination. I felt very comfortable with her and couldn't have asked for a more complete skin exam. She did two biopsies and it was quick and painless. Highly recommended.
Wait was longer than expected today but isn't typically the case. Dr.Tzu is extremely helpful, professional, insightful, and has a pleasant demeanor, highly recommended.
Dr. Tzu is awesome! She is very thorough and knowledgeable. Best dermatologist I have ever seen.
Dr. Tzu was very pleasant and informative throughout the whole visit. I have been struggling with severe acne for 5 year and still counting. Dr.Tzu recommended different options and medications that i should go on. She was very acknowledgeable and patient, never did i felt that i was being rushed. The staffs there were super nice and accommodating, not to mention that the location was absolutely beautiful. I would definitely go back again. Thank you, Dr.Tzu!
I've been seeing Dr Tzu for over a year now and will continue to get my annual skin checks with her. She is kind, and attentive. Her offices are immaculate, and her staff is always friendly.
The actual visit with the doctor felt rush. She came in and out in less than 10mins.
Dr. Tzu was amazing. I visited her for a scalp condition and I've never left a doctors office feeling so confident and satisfied as k was today. She thoughtfully answered each and every one of my questions, thoroughly explained my condition and all possible treatments. I would highly recommend Dr. Tzu, wish I could give her 10 stars!
Dr. Tzu was knowledgable, however, the wait was too long and payment policy is strange. Leaving a credit card on file is not what is typically done in doctor offices
The waiting room process was kind of annoying- fill out pages of forms on paper, the secretary types in all of them, THEN you are brought back. If I had typed them into the computer myself, would have saved 15/20 minutes. Otherwise, a good office- friendly and efficient.
She is amazing!
She was great. Her office was very nice and very clean. I would absolutely recommend.
I've seen dermatologists in the city before. In my experience, it was more of a "meet & greet", and I didn't spend more than 5 minutes with the doctor. Dr. Tzu took the time to ask questions. She seemed like she genuinely cared about listening to my history, and what she could do as a medical professional to help. I'm not a doctor, but she seemed extremely knowledgeable about the issues I was describing, and was able to explain her diagnosis - in simple terms but at a detail that made me comfortable that she knew what she was talking about. I'm glad I met her, and I feel like I've found my dermatologist in NYC.
Dr. Tzu was very caring and provided great advice and diagnosis. She was able to explain everything in simple terms for the average patient
Dr Tzu was amazing, professional and efficient. She takes her time explaining your issue and how she will treat. She makes you completely comfortable. Like a sister that happens to be a doctor. She is also a new guard doctor employing the tools to make sure you get in right away and get exactly what you need.
Great ! Awesome Doctor!! By far the best dermatologist I've seen in NYC ! Her assistant Rebecca was awsome! Definitely going back ??!
Great Dr. And very friendly staff! Highly recommend ??
Dr. Tzu is very likeable and friendly and she made me feel very comfortable. She took the time to explain things to me and wasn't condescending. I did feel our time together was a bit rushed and would like to see better time management from her office. I had an appointment at 815am and was not seen by the doctor until around 930am.
She's fine but her staff is rude and incompetent
Dr. Tzu was attentive to my questions and concerns and is willing to work with me to achieve the best results. I've been to previous doctors where barely looked at me or asked questions and just prescribed something. That is not the case with Dr. Tzu and for that I look forward to going back for my next appointment.
Everyone was very professional and very warm. Nice office.
Very good...would definitely go again.
Wonderful doctor. I have recommended her to several other people in my office.
I should have known from her flashy silver-toned waiting room that Dr Tzu's focus was cosmetics. As a medical derm she did not display impressive expertise. Will not return and would not recommend her unless you're strictly looking for cosmetics.
Dr tzu is so awesome. She's very informed and intelligent in her profession and I felt so calm after leaving her beautiful office on Wall Street!! Highly recommend
I had a feeling that she's my sister who genuinely cares for me.
Dr. Tzu is very knowledgeable, eloquent, and smart. She understood right away what my issues were and prescribed the right solutions.
Amazing!! Best dermatologist
She is just wonderful. She is so professional without being cold.
She was quick but thorough. Made jokes and put me at ease since I had never had a skin screening before.
Dr. Tzu is a gem. She's knowledgeable, efficient, and has a sense of humor (which is always appreciated when dealing with embarrassing stuff like warts!). She's clearly busy but always makes time to talk through issues in a thoughtful way -- you don't get the sense that she applies a textbook approach to her patients. Her staff, both front desk and assistants, are equally friendly and efficient -- I've never had to wait more than 15 minutes, appointments are easy to book, and the office is clean and bright. Highly recommend her (so long as it doesn't make it harder for me to get appointments!)
her and her staff were excellent, thorough and had a sense of humor! highly recommended - great facilities and location!
I know that "fun" isn't a usual adjective one would use while having some benign skin things removed by a dermatologist - but it was a fun visit. Julia is very professional, very obviously a master of her craft, and I would without a doubt go back for a second visit. Great Dermatologist, excellent bedside manner, and overall a very pleasant experience. Thank you, Julia!
Knowledgeable, attentive, kind, and professional- highly recommend!
Dr. Tzu was incredibly respectful, observant, and listened to all my comments and concerns. I would go back in a heart beat for any other needs. My only complaint was the 40 minute wait time for an 8am appointment--I was the only patient there.
Dr Tzu and her staff are terrifc
Was able to diagnose the problem. When asked about treatment she said everything gets worse with time because that's the way of the world. Her treatment advice was to do nothing . After research I found that doing nothing is exactly the way my condition will continue to worsen. The staff was nice but it's pointless to go to a dr who won't provide a treatment plan.
Both Dr. Tzu and her staff are incredibly friendly. The only negative was the wait time - both times I went in for an appt it was 30 minutes before I was seen by the doctor. Other than that, I would highly recommend the practice!
Dr. Julia is very nice , respectful and professional. I would definitely keep going back. The assistants are also awesome!
Very personable doctor who answers all the question with a high level of professionalism. Also very clean and neat facility, highly recommended
Dr Tzu and her staff are absolutely awesome
Dr Tzu and her staff are all wonderful.
Dr. Tzu was very nice and informative but the wait time was about 50min and I only saw her about 15min.
No follow up
Great bedside manner! -Z
She was very personable and welcoming. I was very comfortable not just being there but asking my questions. She answered all my concerns and was reassuring. Her staff was just as informative and kind. Would definitely recommend!
Was seen almost right away, the receptionist was a bit snarky, the doctor was very good, thorough and pleasant. So was the assistant.
Dr. Tzu is very welcoming, personable, and educated on all dermatological matters. I highly recommend her!
Excellent! Very knowledgable but also personable
Doctor Julia Tzu was very thorough in my annual skin screening.
I don't think I've ever been treated by a doctor. The staff took care of me immediately and there was no wait time to see the Dr. Tzu (although I did have an 8am appointment...) Dr. Tzu explained all steps of the procedure (skin screening and a couple biopsies) and she was patient with my concerns. I'm not the easiest patient - she really was great!
Overall my visit to Dr. Tzu was successful and informative. The staff was friendly and explained everything thoroughly, taking the time to answer all my questions and put my anxieties at ease. However, after an hour wait in the waiting room and then a 30 minute wait in a blue gown in the examining room, my patience was thin. The staff and doctor apologized many times and assured me things are not usually like this, and I do believe them, but that doesn't make the absurd wait time any less frustrating.
Dr. Zhu was very professional and kind. She examined me with care and discussed everything in depth. I am 100% satisfied.
Dr. Tzu was patient, kind, and informative. She didn't rush me through my concerns and used plain english, not dermatology jargon, to diagnose me. The office staff was pleasant also.
Very kind and professional. Would recommend her! I felt very comfortable with her.
Considering I went the day before the 4th of July and the staff had to deal with building having not having the AC open they did great. I had 8:15am. I filled out my forms and I was in waiting to see the doctor my 8:35am. Her assistant put in my medical history and the doctor came in did the exam and went over all my concerns and explained everything as she was going over each process. The staff was in great spirit, very helpful, and I was out the door before I knew it.
Dr. Tzu and her staff were all extremely nice, patient and very thorough. I would definitely recommend!
Excellent Doc. Very knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommend!
Dr. Tzu was professional, friendly, and made me feel more comfortable than any other doctor that I have seen in the past. I typically have high anxiety when visiting any doctor, but she made me feel relaxed and gave me time to ask questions. She explained the procedure (biopsy) to me in detail, and her assistant was present to keep me calm the whole time. As for the wait time in the office, I was seen within 5-10 minutes. I had my forms filled out before arriving there (available on Zoc Doc), so that saved me a lot of time. The receptionist was friendly and professional as well. I highly recommend Dr. Tzu as a dermatologist!
Very nice office, staff and doctor we're very easy going.
Dr. Tzu is very friendly, thorough, and has great bedside manner. I had an irregular freckle I was concerned about and she was able to remove it right away during the appointment, and everything was quick and she made sure I wasn't in any pain. She explained everything well to me so that I understood the prognosis and what she was doing for the procedure, and made me feel very comfortable with everything. I really like Dr. Tzu and her office and would recommend her to anyone.
I had a great experience with Dr. Tzu. I chose her because of her high ratings on ZocDoc, and because of her location downtown. The paperwork is available online, which is very convenient. I filled it out beforehand which saved me some time in the waiting room, and would encourage others to do the same. The waiting room and office were clean, the staff was friendly, and Dr. Tzu was both competent and compassionate. My appointment took about 50 minutes from the time I walked in, to the time I walked out. I was seen right away, but I also had one of the first appointments of the day. Highly recommended.
Dr. Tzu was really great, very knowledgeable and took time to review all my questions/concerns. Her staff is friendly, but not the most professional. Overall they were not bad or offensive. My wait time was really quite good *however* they have 12 pages of forms you have to fill out on your 1st visit so definitely give yourself an extra 15 minutes. Also at checkout I waited for quite sometime before someone showed up at the front desk (they seem a little understaffed). My only issue with my appointment is that my prescriptions did not get sent to the pharmacy I requested though I was assured they would be sent in an hour or so after I left the office.
She was very friendly an informative
Excellent doctor! She was very nice and extremely informative.
Doctor Tzu was very knowledgable and personable. The office staff is polite and accommodating. Very pleased with my experience.
She showed up extremely late and I was the first appointment and I felt she was rude when speaking to me.
This was my first visit to Dr Tzu and we have yet to figure out what exactly I have on my skin, but her approach was thorough and she didn't jump to a diagnosis. I am glad I found her as I was looking for a general dermatologist who is intelligent and to whom I could trust for future work. Her office is super clean and fresh, her support staff is friendly and helpful. Wait time was about 20 minutes after my appointment time. I am pleased so far.
Very thorough and knowledgable. Highly recommended.
Dr. Tzu os absolutely amazing. This was my first visit with her & it went extremely well. The wait was less then 10 minutes. My appointment was for 11:15 i arrived at 11 and was out by 11:30. The office itself ks beautiful. She was very thorough asked me alot of questions and explained everything to me and made sure I understood anything before I left the office. I would highly recommend to anybody looking for a dermatologist.
Dr. Tzu is extremely friendly, was very quick and thorough with my check-up. Offices were very clean and modern as well.
The medication she gave for me for acne has worked very well and the moisturizer she recommended, which is in her office, has restored softness to my skin. Up until seeing Dr. Tzu, I had exclusively been seeing estheticians for facials, but even with that after-glow facial, the unsightly pimples would still return. Dr. Tzu's expertise and excellence as a doctor made me a believer again in clinical medicine over homeopathic face treatments.
Outstanding all around. Everyone was very pleasant, professional and knowledgeable. A rare combination.
Office was beautiful and Dr. Tzu was so nice and friendly. Will definitely recommend! Great doctor!
One of the best doctors visit ever! I never write reviews but I had to for Dr. Tzu. Not only was she great but the entire staff are extremely nice, patient, and helpful. As soon as I walked in I felt welcomed and comfortable. I came in for a check up after not seeing the dermatologist in a couple of years. Dr. Tzu took the time to explain everything to me and answered all the questions I had. I would highly recommend Dr. Tzu to any and everyone. She is the only dermatologist I will see.
Everything works fine except front desk ask for SSN
LONGGGGG wait in a cold room, but doctor was great and very nice.
Dr. Julia Tzu is intelligent , patient , educated, professional and right to the point as her previous reviews state. I was very satisfied with my privacy in this office . Her office is extremely on point meaning clean and the staff is very accomoding nice and helpful. I would definitely be referring friends and will be returning for my follow up appointments. Thank you for your time Dr. Tzu & Staff !
Dr Tzu has been really patience with me. My skin shows incredible improvement after a course of a three-month treatment.
Beautiful office friendly staff will absolutely be back when I have a need
What a fancy office and great location in downtown Manhattan. The wait to see the doc was minimal and followed filling out basic forms as I was a first time patient. Dr Julia was great and diagnosed 2 of my problems right away. Unfortunately I was unable to get sufficient time with the doctor and ask all my questions due to the way ZocDoc made the appointment. I thought it was great that the doctor forwarded my prescription directly to my pharmacy by email.
Julia was extremely professional, calm and very informative and detailed in explaining all potential issues. The office is clean, nicely furnished and makes you want to spend time in a doctor studio. Highly recommended.
Beautiful clean office with professional staff.
Dr. Julia Tzu and her staff are absolutely terrible. I wouldn't recommend this practice to my worst enemy, let alone a friend! If you are looking for a quality practice that puts patient care ahead of financial gain, please look elsewhere.
First appointment with Dr. Tzu. Wonderful personality, very thorough, extremely professional.
The office was well kept and peaceful, the staff was very friendly and professional and Dr. Tzu was thorough, pleasant and easy to talk to.
Professional, direct and to the point
Dr. Tzu was very thorough in her examination and explains all possible options in terms of treatment or procedures. Would definitely recommend.
This was my first visit with Dr. Tzu & I must admit I was a bit nervous BUT all that change when I met Noreen (the doc's assistant) & Dr. Tzu. They were VERY professional with warm personalities. I felt comfortable discussing all that was on my mind & was offered several alternatives. This was the best doctor's visit I have ever had.
Very detailed and transparent about all the effects and potential issues. Very informative and patient.
Very friendly staff. Dr. Tzu was professional, and had a really nice bedside manner.
Dr. Tzu is sweet and professional all at the same time. Her Pa is also great. I have been going to her for several months now and she was able to identify and treat a skin condition that had been bothering me for several years that 3 dermatologists couldn't! highly recommend
Doctor is very nice. More of a cosmetics doctor but not recommended if you have normal dermatology problem like eczema. Also if you tend to be conservative in using hormone based drugs and would like to look for a reason that causes your skin problem, the doctor is likely to disappoint you.
Very thorough. Great bedside manner. Highly recommend.
Dr. Tzu was nice but very "matter of fact." Not the best experience but also not the worst.
She is really attentive, sweet, and helpful.. I would definitely come again
Dr. Tzu was excellent! She anticipated my questions and her staff was super friendly. I feel very confident going back to her again.
She is very professional with a lovely office and very caring staff. She was more thorough than any dermatologist I have been to. Highly recommend her.
Dr. Tzu is an exceptionally skilled and congenial specialist with a great bedside manner. She deals with her patients with utmost professionalism, takes time to explain her procedures and diagnosis in a way you can understand, and helps you feel at ease when unexpected issues or symptoms arise. Her staff are also extremely proficient and caring, and her facilities are top notch.
Very professional and thorough!
Very professional with ability to relate to my concerns and address the issue. The clinic is very clean, bright and tasteful, which is not very common on Manhattan. The only thing I found burdensome was the amount of paper-work I had to fill out. Perhaps this is only a symptom of having done the same thing at 3 other doctors the same week.
She's extremely well educated, lovely physician with an excellent bedside manner. She listens to your concerns and makes sure to answer every question. I've already recommended her to several of my colleagues.
I had the first appointment of the day and when I arrived 5 minutes before my appointment, no one was in the office. I had to wait until about 5 minutes after my appointment was supposed to have started for someone to show up and unlock the office. Once someone showed up, everything went very smoothly, except even though I pre-filled out all of the history forms online, they didn't seem to have them, so I had to redo them.
I am so lucky to have found this clinic! Dr. Tzu is an incredibly warm, compassionate, knowledgeable dermatologist who listened to my concerns and worked with me in coming up with a treatment plan. I left the office feeling like all of my questions were answered and relieved about my condition. The staff was friendly and helpful and the office is clean and new. Pleasantly surprised this place takes insurance!
My appointment with Dr Tzu was satisfactory but not very helpful as the only option presented to me was a very expensive one that I had tried many times in the past. The receptionist was quite cold and not welcoming. I left with the impression that this office is suited more for patients that are more in need of cosmetic procedures and expensive laser treatments. In comparison, a nearby doctor with ivy league credentials in a nearby office asks for half the price for the same procedure.
Dr. Tzu is thorough, knowledgable and very patient. She will answer all of your questions and consider the least drastic measures to treat your condition. She is not a pill-happy dermatologist, which I really appreciate. I am always able to get an appointment, even on short notice. I highly recommend Dr. Tzu!
Very thorough and professional . . . Great rapport and communication . . . Efficient, courteous and respectful.
Great visit, beautiful office, friendly staff.
Dr. Tzu is amazing! She has a great personality that really puts the patient at ease. She takes the time to explain all of the confusing medical terminology and what each examination/procedure entails. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist in the area.
Dr. Tzu was very thorough, she did a full body check that was very detailed, and I felt that i finally went to a doctor who took their time and devoted it to the patient. Great doctor, will definitely recommend to anyone needing a dermatologist, and will be who I go to for a long time to come.
Clean office, nice staff. Very sweet, explains and answers questions very well. very thorough screenings.
She is wonderful and she took over an hour to explain everything she recommended. She takes insurance and that is rare for such a high end doctor. She really really cares so happy she will be treating my sons bad acne!
She was cheerful and informative and answered all of my questions.
Very nice and thorough
Dr. Tzu is friendly and extremely professional. I felt that she listened to my concerns and I felt completely at ease with her and Noreen immediately. They also did their very best to make me feel less anxious about an unexpected biopsy of a small mole.
The condition wasn't very complicated. But the treatment process was comfortable and lighthearted as the doctor and her nurse were acting in a very professional and yet amiable manner. Really good experience overall.
very knowledgeable and candid Doctor.
I usually don't like going to doctors in general so I avoid them at all cost but after seeing these reviews I decided to give it a try. First off the office setting is beautiful and extremely clean, no need to worry about dirtiness. The staff was extremely friendly and sufficient the answered all my questions and concerns and helped me with the paperwork. They were even fun to have small talk with! Dr.Tzu was extremely friendly as well and extremely professional as well. She was highly educated and knew exactly what the best treatment for me was and diagnosed my condition quickly and sufficiently and also took the time out to ensure my insurance covered me properly for my prescription (which most doctors don't do!). If your in need of a dermatologist and you live in any of the 5 boroughs your crazy to go anywhere else but Dr.Tzus office. Even if your far its worth the trip and the 5 train is right in front of the office. Super convenient! I'll be referring all my friends and coworkers to this office!
I think it was a little busy today but once I was seen, everybody was friendly and knowledgeable. They called in my prescription right away as they said and I was able to pick it up from the Duane Reade down the street less than 20 minutes later.
She was knowledgable, patience and friendly. Took the time to listen to my history/concerns regarding acne treatment and provide a thorough plan to use going forward and the reasons why she prescribed each medication over other treatments I may have tried in the past.
Great visit to Dr Tzu. Very thorough in explaining treatment options. Office team was helpful and efficient.
A beautiful office, a great staff and Dr. Tzu is top notch.
Lovely, clean office. A lot of paperwork so be sure to arrive at least 15 mins before your scheduled appointment time. Dr. Tzu was very thorough and she took the time to explain things to me. I was very pleased with my overall experience.
What a wonderful experience in the midst of anxiety! The staff was professional and caring. Dr. Tau was absolutely fantastic! I cannot wait for my followup visit.
Dr Tzu was very thorough and knowledgeable.
Extremely professional, accurate and makes you feel very welcome.
Great! beautiful newly renovated office. I loved her and her staff.
Great friendly informative and very helpful
I chose dr. tzu as she looked around my age and attractive/ that she cared about her appearance. I was in to ask her about these wrinkles that I just noticed starting on my chest. I was expecting her to give me some options: Botox/ fillers; some sort of acid based cream/ retinal/ microdermabrasion? Light therapy? ANYTHING?! All she said was "oh you should wear some sunscreen" hmmm well thank you for that pearl of wisdom but given that the damage is already done, what are my options for helping it?? Nothing? Oh ok...thanks.
Dr. Tzu is fantastic! She is one of the best Dermatologists I have seen. She is extremely knowledgeable and efficient! She was super great at giving me all the information and helping to ease my nerves before and during the biopsy process! She has been a great doctor and I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Tzu was very professional, listened attentively, and allowed me to ask as many questions as I wanted. She was thurough and explained my diagnosis and treatment plan well. She even predicted other symptoms I had, without me mentioning them first. Another plus, the office is immaculately clean and well furnished. I would definitely recommend Dr. Tzu.
This is the new practice of an experienced doctor. She's extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The office is spectacular, all white & silver and shiny. Give yourself a couple extra minutes before your appointment to check in at the building's lobby security desk and catch an elevator but once you're in it's nice and quick.
Dr. Tzu was very helpful and answered all of my questions in depth and did not dumb it down for me. I truly appreciated the consultation and am hoping to see some improvement in my acne. Also, she has the shiniest office ever. Silver chairs!
Very knowledgable and nice. Effective solutions to my acne problems.
Dr. Tzu is very informative and talks you through every step of a procedure. The office is very clean and modern looking. Amanda the receptionist was warm and welcoming as well as Dr. Tzu's assistant, Maria.
I received excellent care and advice. Dr. Tzu is very thorough and thoughtful.
It was dope.
Dr. Tzu and staff were excellent care and very friend environment.
Really good doctor, she gave me a plan and went through all of the steps and answered my queries., Would be great if they accepted the zoc doc online forms so I didn't have to spend 20-25 minutes filling everything out.
Not a nice physician
she was terrific. great manner. made me feel comfortable and confident about my diagnosis and treatment
Fantastic. Went on a Saturday. Zero wait time. Both Dr. Tzu and her staff were personable and professional.
Julia Tzu was fantastic. She was personable and approachable. Provided great suggestions for some minor concerns and relayed key information that related to the concerns I was having.
Dr. Tzu was cheerful and professional, listening to all my questions and answering in a straightforward way. She made several suggestions, but did not push a specific product or procedure. While it is still too soon to tell if my treatment plan is "working", I am confident that I received a fair diagnosis and good suggestions. One thing to note is that the office does not take the Zoc Doc check in forms. I arrived 15 minutes before my appointment and still spent 20-25 minutes filling in both paper and iPad based forms. So plan ahead.
Excellent doctor!! Very patient and explains all the details. Highly recommended!!
Dr. Tzu is very sweet, and my visit was wonderful. She is clearly very intelligent, and took a lot of time to walk me through everything and answer all of my questions. Additionally, I loved how she prescribed to me each medication I needed at once, and also scheduled a follow up 2 months out. I've seen plenty of dermatologists who were not respectful of my time, asking me to come back in 2 weeks and then again shortly thereafter. Obviously, I understand follow up timing can differ depending on diagnoses, but I appreciated how she used our appointment to impart her expertise and maximize our time together. A great experience with an expert doctor!
Dr Tzu was very professional and diagnosed my condition quickly. She gave me a prescription that helped my condition and suggested a follow up afterwards. I feel that she is a good physician and would visit her again.
Dr. Tzu is amazing! She took the time to not only understand my dermatology issue, but also my overall health. She gave me several treatment options, and once this was discussed and a treatment plan mutually agreed to, she explained everything she was doing, and why she was doing it. I enthusiastically recommend her to all!
Excellent doctor. Very knowledgeable, competent, and kind. Thoroughly answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns.
Very informative. Overall pleasant interaction.
DR Tzu and her staff was very professional and extremely pleasant. Although my nerves got the best of me for the biopsy, Dr. Tzu made me feel comfortable through the entire process.
I have received excellent care from Dr. Tzu. The Dr. is very professional and caring. Dr. Tzu took time to talk about my problem and a solution to the problem as well as explaining step by step what care she was giving me.
Can Julia practice all forms of medicine?! She is a fantastic doctor; kind, professional, informative, and simply good at what she does. I don't enjoy going to the doctor, but I enjoyed my experience in her office today.
Loved the office and the way I was treated.
She was great. She didn't rush through the appointment and answered all my questions without judgement.
Love Dr Tzu, she treated me so kindly and was very helpful and informative. I have a great new dermatologist now!
Excellent professional and very humble. listened to all the issues I have and took care of them right away.
Excellent! Very knowledgeable, friendly, and did a flawless biopsy that is practically unnoticeable in a very noticeable area! I will be using her until she retires!
She is very nice and attentive.
Really great bedside manner and explained everything thoroughly. Glad I read the reviews that said they don't confirm ZocDoc appointments and called - otherwise, I wouldn't have known prior that my 5:30 pm appointment would not take place until 6:30 pm.
Informative, kind and made me relax. Would definitely see her again and would recommend to friends and colleagues!
She was very easy to talk her and took the time to answer my questions thoroughly. She was not at all pushy nor did she try to sell me on any product or treatment unless I specifically asked. Great doctor!
Dr. Tzu was great, very nice and professional. This is the first dermatologist I've seen that didn't have five other patients at the same time in different rooms. She took her time, answered my questions fully, and even spoke to me about some skin issues that weren't my primary reason for being there.
Dr. Tzu was very knowledgeable and friendly and was able to answer all my questions. I was seen right away and was impressed with the presentation of the office itself as well as the friendly staff. I will be be going back to Dr. Tzu in the future and would definitely recommend her to others.
Dr Tzu was very thorough, gentle and kind. I would highly recommend her to any one needing a dermatologist!
Dr. Tzu is by far the best dermatologist I've seen so far. She is extraordinarily skillful, knowledgeable, and thorough. I finally understand what is happening to my skin after speaking with her. After the past week, I have been seeing dramatic improvements in my skin, and I can’t wait to see how much more my skin will improve by my next appointment. I definitely recommend her for cosmetic procedures. She is just fantastic!
She was great! Very professional and knowledgable. Patient and thorough when explaining things and terms. Super nice. I would recommend her to my friends.
Gracious and clear, she answered all of my questions, and made useful suggestions. A A perfect first appointment.
Excellent. Learned more by asking questions.
Julia was very sweet and offered great advice for helping with a few small skin issues. She made me feel comfortable and was extremely knowledgable reagarding the different medications and products she was recommending.
Dr. Tzu is kind, professional, and thorough, and her office staff is efficient and pleasant. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a dermatologist.
Very good experience , caring doctor , good staff . Glad I tried Zoc Doc .i will use it all the time now . Thank you !
Would definitely recommend her to my family/friends. She was polite and took the time to answer any questions I had. The staff were friendly and the office seemed very clean.
She was wonderful, attentive and caring. Would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Tzu is very knowledgeable, polite and made me feel very comfortable! I will definitely be going back to her for any of my skin care needs!
Incredibly knowledgeable , great bedside manner . Entire staff was amazing!!!
What a pleasure to come into the office and to be seen by Dr. Tzu. A true professional and so personable.
Dr. Tzu is skilled doctor and quickly completed the required procedure.
Fast, efficient, very thorough, and prompt.
She was very thorough, thoughtful, and explained all of her actions. She was also very friendly and personable. A true pleasure.
Very clean office, professional staff. Dr. Tzu answered all my questions thoroughly.
