Verified Patient Reviews
Incredibly kind and thorough doctor. Really appreciated her professionalism.
Very efficient, professional, and attentive
Dr. Travis is professional and courteous, also genuinely trying to help the patients.
Excellent all around.
Full body check was thorough. She had notes & picture from previous visit for comparison of area being "watched". Was frank and informative about what procedures could be done there and who to see for things she could not do.
Dr Travis is amazing. She is thorough and professional. This is my third time seeing her and each time she has been within 5 minutes of the scheduled appointment time.
Very thorough. Would recommend that she use vernacular terms to describe skin issues, rather than strictly medical terminology. Otherwise, everything was fine.
I loved it! Very clean, well-run office; extremely punctual.
I appreciated Dr. Travis' thorough skin check and explanation of things to keep an eye out for in the future that would warrant a return visit. I was also hoping to get some guidance on skin care routine, but I felt like she was not as interested in helping me navigate the wide array of face products available on the market. This left me feeling a bit bummed out & still confused over what I should use. That said, I would still return to her for any worrisome skin issues as she seemed like an excellent clinician.
Very fast and efficient with good information
She is completely helpful and direct and intelligent.
Dr. Travis is wonderful. She's thorough, takes things seriously, but is very kind and approachable. I never hesitate to ask questions because she gives direct, straightforward answers.

She was fast to diagnose and knowledgeable.
This was an excellent visit very way.

She took time to really consider my past treatment and what we could do going forward. It has been a while since I felt a dermatologist has actually examined my skin so closely. I felt heard and am excited to begin my new course of treatment!
Dr. Travis is great! She's thorough, thoughtful and compassionate. She made me feel very comfortable, she explained everything, and I knew I was in competent, good hands. I recommend her very highly.
Dr. Travis was, as ever, professional, patient, and pleasant, ready to explain complexities and answer questions. She inspires confidence. An excellent doctor! Unfortunately, her assistant didn't come up to that standard. Borderline rude, in fact, making the overall experience somewhat strained. Doctors should realize that the quality of care they provide depends on their ancillary staff as well as themselves.
Dr. Travis is a very thorough and skilled Dermatologist. I highly recommend her.

Overall a great experience. Dr Travis is excellent: professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant. Her staff were very qualified and professional. My only complaint is that I had to write the same information (e.g. my phone number) on multiple forms when I arrived. This just feels like a waste of my time.

Easy booking, smooth appointment.
She has a wonderful bedside manner, was very thorough and happy to help.

Dr. Travis is older/more experienced than her picture would lead you to believe, and very thorough, ready to answer any questions. She was up front and not at all pushy about which services would be covered by insurance and which would be considered cosmetic. Highly recommended.

The appointment went as I expected and I received what I believe to be appropriate recommendations and medication to deal with my issue. With regard to wait-time, I was told there was a delay due to an unanticipated procedure that the doctor had to perform, and the doctor and staff were very courteous in apologizing for the delay. They even gave me some sample products that I could use, as consideration for my having had a long wait, which was very thoughtful. I appreciated it.
Dr. Travis is very pleasant to talk to and is thorough.

Professional, great service, fast waiting time.
I strongly recommend Dr.Travis, very professional, gentle, accomodating, she took the time to check every problem I have in my skin, got the diagnosis, explained to me the problem, the cause and prescribed what was needed to take care of it. She was exceptional calm and clear in what she was doing completely different than most doctor in NYC..
I came in with a specific concern about a mole and a cancer screening. Dr. Travis was really quick with the screening. Said she just couldn't tell if the mole was concerning or not, and told me to come back and check again in a few weeks, then left. It was all incredibly rushed and I left even more distressed than when I came. I felt as though she was not interested in hearing my concerns and I felt generally uncomfortable.
She is very professional.
Love this doctor and her co-doctors and her staff. Love this location and brand new office. So great! And wonderful, clear and expressive bedside manor.
Lovely person and extremely professional. Dr. Travis was very knowledgeable and I would not hesitate to return if I needed to. Office staff was also quite pleasant.

Dr Travis put me at ease immediately. She is calm, warm and extremely respectful. She answered my questions and was very thorough. I will definitely recommend her as an excellent dermatologist.
Lisa Travis was so personable, it was a great visit. We found a spot that ended up being very serious, and her office called me numerous times to be sure they got ahold of me so they didn't leave that on a message. They got me in just a few days later to get it fully removed. I am very thankful to have found her office and the office staff.
Courteous and professional. From the reception staff to PA to Dr. Travis herself.
Dr. Travis was not only professional but very nice as well. She did A complete body check thoroughly. Most dermatologists seem to check perfunctly or do a 5 minute look over. Dr. Travis is a dermatologist that I highly refer.
Dr. Travis is wonderfully communicative, attentive and amazingly thorough. Her mastery of her field is confidence inspiring. She uses electronic records to great effect and has a reassuring, calming and confident manner. The staff is efficient and brings a pleasant atmosphere to the office. I highly recommend Dr. Travis and her practice.
very pleasant and efficient.
Low-key decor, pleasant front staff, Dr was friendly and professional, used electronic records very well - first we talked, she took notes, then she entered the info quickly so the best of both ways of capturing my information. Very thorough exam and discussion.
She was quite nice and friendly and quickly assessed my problem. She sent me home with a few prescription and nonprescription suggestions, which worked! Great doctor.
Dr. Travis was professional, though the wait time was long and her receptionist staff were tacky.
An excellent experience - on time, listened, did what needed to be done with no fuss but, more important, the nicest team you'll ever work with - Dr. Travis and everyone working with her. Really good people.
I have been seeing Dr. Travis for about 2 years now and continue to travel to the Upper West Side to see her despite having moved to Brooklyn. She is kind, patient, and quick!
Nice friendly, clean low key office. I was taken in as soon as I had completed the paperwork and seen by DrTravis almost immediately. She was very friendly and explained everything perfectly. Would definitely recommend!
She was short, not attentive for a new patient, charged the insurance company for new patient fee and no treatment. Would not recommend!
Great - she's got a very easy-going yet professional manner.
This was my first visit with Dr. Travis and I am very pleased! She listened to my history with acne, asked what prior medications I have used, answered all my questions and provided informative answers as to why she thought certain medications would be better than others. She also provided information regarding future medications that we could turn to in case the first ones aren't as effective. She is very kind and friendly, and she has a great bedside manner. I look forward to my next visit with her!
Great attentive doctor. Always listens to concerns and works with me to solve my skin problems. I would highly recommend Dr. Travis.
Very thorough. Explained everything step by step.
Entire staff was very professional and the office was spotless. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Travis for all of your dermatology needs.
Dr. Travis is personable, very competent and I felt very well taken care of!
Dr. Travis is an excellent doctor. She and her staff are very thorough and all information was explained clearly. I found Dr. Travis by reading all of the positive reviews on her and I was not disappointed.
Picked LT MD due to reviews and location. All good. Though all I had was a skin inspection therefore I can't comment on more detailed work.
Dr. Travis is a wonderful dermatologist and one I will be returning to for future check ups. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Travis was very competent. Her prescribed treatment for acne is working well, and the body scan she administered was very thorough.
Very thorough. Answers all questions. I would recommend her.
Lisa has a great bedside manner, and made me feel completely comfortable, addressed all my issues to my satisfaction, and amazingly, I didn't have a long wait before I was seen. 10 minutes maybe. Amazing for NY. I will not hesitate to come back.
I didn't have to wait at all, which was great. Dr. Travis was thorough and efficient. While not overly chatty, she explained everything to me and asked if I had any questions. She did not greet me by name, which is a small thing, but I appreciate doctors who do, as it feels more personal. Overall, it was a good experience and I'd definitely recommend her.
Everything was excellent. The staff as well as the doctor.
Dr. Travis was very thorough and listened to all my concerns and asked me related questions. She has great bedside manner. I plan on recommending her to a friend of mine this week. Her receptionist was also very kind and helpful.
I went to Lisa Travis for an annual skin screening. The office was a little difficult to find (office on 71st street, I believe, rather than Central Park West). She was very respectful during the screening, slightly quicker than I expected (my first skin screening). I had a white bump on my face under my eye for a few years. I asked her about it and she identified it as Milia and offered to remove it, but didn't pressure me. After asking her about the procedure and price, I agreed to have her remove the bump. She did so quick and seamlessly. There was a slight confusion with the billing about a month later (which seems to happen all too often in NYC). After calling the number provided on the bill and my insurance (UHC), it seemed Lisa's office hadn't yet notified their billing office that they received a check from my insurance provider. Overall positive experience.
Very professional and thorough.
Very professional and thorough. Her rooms were spotless and her staff friendly and attentive.
She was very sweet and eager to help!
She was so nice and really seemed to care and listen to what i had to say. Very attentive. I will probably reccomend her however I wanted to see how her course of action pans out for me first!
She was careful, thorough and friendly. I will not hesitate to see her again when I next need a dermatological consultation.
Very personable; explained things well; office was clean, bright and quiet. Office staff was pleasant.
My appt with Dr. Travis went really smoothly. Her office emailed me the paperwork beforehand, which I appreciated and I only waited 5 minutes before being called. Dr. Travis was thoughtful and friendly. She didn't push any products. Her office called to follow up within the time they said they would. Overall, a good experience.
Dr. Travis was great. She does a consultation before she treats you... She listens to all your concerns & addresses them thoroughly... And then explains everything she is planning to do so she can answer any questions. The receptionist and nursing staff are also extremely helpful & take the time to answer any other questions you may have.
She was exactly what I was looking for. Thank goodness she knew how to fill her profile out correctly. The office staff were pleasant, too.
She wasn’t very friendly
Very professional and genuinely concerned about my issues. I would highly recommend her.
First appointment at this office. Great experience with both the doctor and staff.
Loved her! Professional and warm. She took her time to listen to me and diagnose a solution.
Uneventful. Hope that it leads to good results.
professional, lovely, knowledgeable. I would see her again.
I found the doctor to be very knowledgeable and proactive and she had a very pleasant manner as well.
Very pleasant experience.
Professional, attentive, offered treatment options, answered all my questions and dealt with my concerns
Felt rushed, but she did address my immediate needs. Very pleasant demeanor.
I had a great experience with Dr. Travis. She spent plenty of time with me talking about my dermatological and medication histories. Unlike a lot of dermatologists I've encountered, she actually listened to my concerns and opinions instead of just talking over me and being dismissive. She was very pleasant. Her office staff was very nice and easy to work with. I was seen in less than 5 minutes of completing my paperwork. Highly recommend!
So far, we are in the process of determining what it is wrong with me. However, from my initial experience, I can mention that Dr.Travis was very thorough, attentive and respectful.
Seems like a well-run operation. On my two visits the office has been quite calm and low hassle. The zodoc system seems well integrated and appointments are confirmed quickly. The doctor and her assistants are personable and focused on the task at hand. There were no attempts to push any products or services. All-in-all a good experience.
I thought she was terrific and her office was wonderfully efficient
Dr. Travis took the time to give me an extremely thorough exam. She has a very good, professional manner,she was thoughtful about the questions I asked, and she did not hasten me into unnessary procedures that would put money in her pocket. The wait time was very short - the office staff very friendly and helpful.
Dr. Travis was very nice and understanding but I found myself waiting for a long time in the examination room.
Thank you for your advice to my two daughters who are about to attend graduate school.
I was very pleased with this appointment. Dr Travis took the time to make a thorough exam and listened to my remarks.
Not as thorough as I had hoped. The appoitment was kind of quick and she asked general questions, when I thought she would have to specific since I had visited her for a hair loss problem at 25 which I hope is not as common as she seemed to believe.Otherwise the staff was nice and the appoitment was quick.
Very professional, speedy service.
Great experience with this doctor. In fact, she is now my dermatologist.
Convenient location, warm staff, and prompt, professional treatment - no waiting at all. Definitely recommended!
A bright, warm, professional physician who clearly took the time to read my medical history before entering the room. She's a good listener, has a reasonable appoach, and at long last I have found a dermatologist in Manhattan!
Dr. Travis was clear, helpful, and offered useful suggestions. She went over every item on my list. Came up with a plan. I will have more to report after next visit.
Great experience. THE OFFICE: nice building across from central park, helpful doorman, nice professional waiting room. THE STAFF: very friendly and easy going. WAIT TIME: She took me immediately. THE DOCTOR: Lovely woman. Kind, peaceful, caring demeanor. She explained things to me in a very helpful way that made me feel confident in her assessment and concern for my overall well being. She was most helpful in asking questions about my lifestyle and actually recommending NOT to do certain procedures, since the benefit would be small and there would be a minuscule risk for a woman who might be pregnant. It was clear that my overall health was her greatest motivation, and drumming up extra "business" did not factor in at all - this is something I've experienced with other dermatologists. She cared to get a perspective of my overall health. An excellent experience.
Dr. Travis is very professional and kind and warm and patient! She patiently listened and looked at all my little concerns and explained what it each one is all about. I declare her my dermatologist and highly recommend her!!
Dr Travis was very nice and helpful. The experience was very easy and the staff were friendly and professional. Would certainly return and recommend.
