Not only did front desk ask for insurance cards, but also a credit card to cover any charges not paid by insurance. I was a little perturbed that they asked for this. No other Dr. I have visited has ever askedfor this. This office is more concerned about collecting a fee for a no show appt.

I never write reviews for doctors, restaurants, or products, but I feel compelled to write a review for Dr. Travis and her staff. I have been seeing Dr. Travis for two years now, and I know her to be professional, knowledgeable,humane, and detailed oriented. She has a calming presence, listens to her patients concerns, and provides helpful information when solicited. I highly recommend her and her team to anyone looking for a dermatologist. I am relieved to have found a doctor and clinical team with such high social and medical intelligence. I will continue to see them routinely for annual checks and any other skin issues as long as I am living in NYC.

Maybe because it was an early morning appointment but I got taken right away (even early), the doctor came in shortly after & my whole appointment was done within a half hour. Very pleased & the doctor (along with all personnel & staff) were very nice.

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 feltlike 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.

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. Borderlinerude, 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.
