Came in and was seen right away. The doctor was absolutely fantastic. So many times I have walked into a dermatologists office with my condition and been met with confusion or blank stares or dismissal about it being something else. Dr.Romano was knowledgeable, patient, understanding and made the whole experience comfortable when the conversation really isnt very pleasant usually. He seemed very sure of his advice and treatment plan, covered all the bases and extended genuine care to me that not many doctors these days do. So glad I found a doctor who actually takes a minute to understand what the patient is saying and knows his stuff!

Dr. Romano was very kind and professional. I just went in for a quick consultation but he took time to listen to my concerns and make some recommendations. Front office staff was very kind and helpful as well. My only thingwas I took the 8:30am spot thinking I would be in and out quick. I wasn't in the waiting room for long but hung out in the consultation area for a good 15 minutes. Otherwise, all was great.

Avoid this place if you want to be treated respectfully and fairly! Dr. Romano's office made me book a short appointment for a consultation knowing full well that he would not be able to perform a biopsy on me the sameday if I needed it as agreed. They knew ahead of time that they would not be performing the biopsy as they made a 15 minute appointment for me. I took off a full day of work for this. I took off another day of work and returned a second time to do the biopsy. However, the office mistakenly booked me for another consultation instead of a biopsy. Dr. Romano stated that he didn't have enough time to see me and refused to perform the procedure on me or accommodate me in a reasonable manner despite acknowledging that it was his office's fault. His office manager Elvira was similarly dismissive of me when she did not return my call to discuss a fair resolution for their blunder. Elvira also refused to return my co-pay for my first appointment citing an agreement with the insurance company despite my entire experience with this office being a complete and total waste of my time. I have since confirmed with my insurance company that no such agreement exists. When I walked into the office during my first visit, there was another patient screaming at the staff for their incompetence. I should have known then and there to avoid this place like the plague.

The doctor is very nice and easy to talk to. After Dr Romano explained my condition and the course of treatment, he asked me if I understood everything and asked me whether I was okay with that, which I really liked.I didn’t feel rushed at all, which was also very nice. I recommend this doctor.

Great visit. It's rare to find a specialist in NYC who keeps good time while also being thorough and not rushing the appointment. Pleasant bedside manner, professional, and knowledgable. Really takes his time to ask questions and tries to geta sense of your medical history. Very clean office and meeting rooms too. Staff are all friendly, helpful, and quick to respond via phone if you need anything. Highly recommended!
