I like Dr. Frew. Really my only complaint is that she has an office policy of needing to come in every 6 months to refill a prescription i've used most of my life and seems to always want more and morein-person visits. This is a waste of both of our time and i resent the imposition on my time.

Dr Frew is by far the best doctor I have ever gone to. Too many doctors in NYC just take your copay and give you some generic rushed inspection, and send you on your way. Not so with Dr. Frew. Shemakes an effort to get to know her patients on a personal level and provides a truly unparalleled level of attention and concern for her patients' health. She also goes above and beyond merely providing care by taking the time to explain diagnoses, treatments, etc to her patients - she truly cares and wants to make sure you leave understanding fully! Shes honestly just an amazing person and I could go on and on - if you need a dermatologist, look no further. Her office also runs so smoothly - appointments are on time, staff is friendly, etc. I'm actually looking forward to my next dermatologist appointment!

Arrived nearly an hour early (first time and traveling from afar). Upon checking in I noticed that they moved my appointment forward. I was seen to within the first 10 minutes. Dr. Frew listened to my concerns. Didn't feel rushed.

She's awesome. Super friendly, and she explains things in laymen's terms, and she doesn't skin shame you, meaning she doesn't make you feel guilty for not slathering yourself in suntan lotion at all times.

I waited a bit of time before being seen by Dr. Frew and was a little thrown off when she finally came in to speak with me. I felt like once i was finally seen the entire appointment was rushed andI was trying to be pushed out the door. Dr. Frew was very nice, but speeded through my appointment and I didn't feel like I was getting the attention and direction I needed. I was in for a first time visit for acne and I wanted to discuss my problems and all that was kind of skipped and she rushed to prescribe me what just seemed to be easy. I'm going back for a check up in a month, but not sure I would recommend or revisit this office..

Both Dr. Frew and her staff are extremely friendly and thorough. I always feel listened to and heard when I visit her and appreciate that each year following my annual skin check they walk through things I should look out forand preventative measures I should take. Her thoroughness led me to discover two underlying conditions I have, symptoms of which had previously been ignored by other doctors.

Dr. Frew is a great dermatologist. I came in with specific concerns and she has put me on a treatment plan that has really helped. I enjoy going to her office - it is small, clean, and well organized. It isvery easy to communicate with her office and to request prescriptions or any additional information. I have continued to see Dr. Frew since my initial appointment and hope to continue to do so to address all my dermatology needs going forward!

She gave me too many directions and options of treatment, suggesting a couple of products. I had to ask what I had and exactly what was the treatment.
