The Nurses/ ladies at the front desk could have been more helpful. Unable to get answers when I called to follow up on my blood test results.

Mt. Sinai does not use the zocdoc registration, insurance card capture etc so entire registration process had to be re done in office.

Dr Sivendran has a warm manner that automatically sets you at ease. I came in to have a small lump in my arm checked out, was seen right away and Dr Sivendran diagnosed the situation efficiently and presented my follow up options in a very accessible manner that showcased her sound knowledge but never forced a treatment plan on me. This was all done in such a quick yet welcoming manner so when she asked if there was anything else I wanted looked at while we were there, I felt able to open up about a more sensitive medical issue that Id had trouble getting diagnosed, had given up on and was quite insecure in raising. She handled it with support and grace and was thorough and pragmatic with what the situation was and the options to remedy it along with the pros and cons of each course of action and even a smart way to get a discount on the medication involved. In short, it was an excellent experience from start to finish that went above and beyond what I'd even planned on receiving from the appointment.

She was very efficient and thorough. She had a student with her and talked out loud throughout the exam about what she is seeing and what it means. I'm not sure if she's as communicative if she doesn't have a student with her, but I appreciated the lesson.

Dr. Sivendran is an excellent doctor. I wish i could have continued my treatment with her but the billing department messed up my payment, the hospital did nothing upon a review, and I had to pay out of pocket. 10/10 would recommend Dr. Sivendran with my life - but be weary of St. Luke's dermatology dept.

My zocdoc schedule got mixed up and my appointment was not relayed to the admin team. Dr. Sivendran still made time to see me even as her schedule was full. She was very knowledgeable, had a great bedside manner and was a good listener. I would recommend her to my friends and do plan on seeing her again in a few months.

Building lobby was great - staff there was very nice. Office was a little sketchy with the staff showing up late. Then opening the security gates to the check-in desk only to make everyone wait even longer (10+ min for them to log into the computers). Then we were all given a smug look and a clipboard with 8 intake forms with mostly the same questions on each form that needed to be filled out. Why they couldn't give me the forms before they logged into their computer, I will never know. Why they couldn't reduce all the forms to 1-2 pages, I will never know.

Great physician. Dr. Sivendran was on time, welcoming, listened to what I had to say, and thoroughly explained what she was doing and all the potential courses of action. She also actually took the time to examine my skin (which seems to be a rare thing in the dermatologists I've seen so far in NYC). Would definitely see her again, and recommend to others.

Dr. Sivendran is perfectly lovely! She was quick, efficient, and very friendly. She makes excellent conversation while asking you the routine questions; I learned several fascinating skin-related facts during my exam. The office staff was polite and efficient. I was seen within 10 minutes of completing my new patient paperwork.
