I went for a routine check, The visit went well, I liked the doctor. However I was seen about 55 minutes after the planned time, I found ironic on how I was requested 4 times to confirm my appointment as well as emailed 2 times about the cancellation fee. That would have been nice if the same system could have been put to use to notify me about the doctor running behind schedule, so I don't have to take a 2 hour lunch break.

I am extremely upset that I received no warning from the doctor about additional costs which I might incur from the procedures. I was under the assumption that is was all part of a regular consultation and was very shocked when I received an astronomical bill afterwards.

Dr Weinstein was caring and considerate and provided a treatment plan that has been working extraordinarily well
It was my first skin screening, and she made me feel 100% comfortable, was friendly and talked me through the entire process. I also had to have a mole biopsied, and she talked me through the shot in a kind way after I told her of my fear of needles. She was reassuring and professional the entire time.
She was great - very prompt, friendly, didn't try to upsell me on anything (some derms are bad about this.) She gave me honest advice on the questions I had and direct solutions to my problems. I would recommend her for sure.

Dr. Weinstein is great. Took time to speak with me about condition, treatment, and prognosis. Indicated possible need for follow up procedure but suggested a "wait and see" approach rather than attempting to accelerate (and bill for) it, as some other doctors might have done. Good listener, very knowledgeable. Have been looking for a new dermatologist and glad I found her. Staff also very pleasant.
Dr. Weinstein was professional and through. She was very helpful, non-judgmental and pleasant; I would definitely recommend her for any dermatological needs.
She was nice and knowledgeable, but I had to wait about 40 minutes to see her for a 5 minute consultation - not pleased about that.

Dr Weinstein is great! The wait was long today but she is so kind and welcoming I forgot about it!
My wait time was very minimum (I had an 8:40am appointment). Dr. Weinstein was very friendly and personable. The receptionist was a "NY friendly" like not really friendly, she kinda smiled but just said "uh huh" when you thanked her. If anything I wished people who worked in reception would be friendlier.
Dr. Weinstein was thoughtful and compassionate during both of my visits to her office. She took care of every detail regarding my dermatological procedure. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend the office of Dr. Weinstein.
