Dermatologist

Professional statement

Dr. Naomi Donnelley, a board certified dermatologist with 13 years of post-residency experience in both academic and private practice settings, specializes in general medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. She sees both adult and pediatric patients. Dr. Donnelley graduated from Yale University, magna cum laude, with a BA in Biology. She then went on to attend Yale University School of Medicine. She completed her internship in internal medicine at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in NYC, and her dermatology residency at Northwestern University in Chicago where she was Chief Resident. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and member of the AOA Medical Honor Society. She has been active in various regional dermatology societies over the years, and served on the Quality Control Committee for 5 years while practicing at Northwestern. After residency, Dr. Donnelley worked as a Clinical Associate Professor at The Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group for over 6 years. When Chicago winters became too much, she and her family explored living and working in Santa Barbara, California and Charleston, SC. While they thoroughly enjoyed both places, they are happy to return to Dr. Donnelley’s hometown of New York City. Dr. Donnelley prides herself on her meticulous care and positive relationships with her patients. She is comfortable with both basic dermatological conditions like acne and warts, and also with more complicated medical dermatological conditions that require systemic medications and coordination with rheumatologists, allergists, plastic surgeons and more. Surgery and procedural dermatology are some of Dr. Donnelley’s fortes. She has diagnosed and excised hundreds of malignant and benign neoplasms. When it comes to cosmetic dermatology, she believes in a less is more approach to achieve a very natural look with botox, fillers and lasers. She takes her time to give her patients a fresh and youthful look without appearing “done.” She encourages patients to bring in photos from when they were younger to help guide treatment. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, three children and 2 dogs, and enjoys travel, any activities involving water, fine dining and reading.

I went to a dermatologist a couple of months ago who I felt didn’t really examine me as well as they should have so I decided to give Zocdoc a try and I found Dr. Donnelly. She gave me a verythorough skin cancer screening and kindly went over everything with me in layman’s terms. She and her staff were all very professional and a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend her.

Great doctor! Personable, knowledgable, sense of humor --- knows her stuff! Dr. Donnelly listened carefully and responded thoughtfully. Considered all the possibilities, discussed treatment options with regard to my needs and preferences.Reviewed my history and previous treatment to see how that might impact the current problem. Took the time to come up with a diagnosis and plan --- didn't rush me out the door the way most dermatologists have in the past.

Dr. Donnelley was amazing! She walked me through all my various methods of treatment and options. She suggested skincare products and sunscreens, but didn't push me to buy or try immediately. She also wrote everything down for me, legible!,so I can refer to it later. Emily, the PA, was nice and detailed, and gave me a bunch of samples to test everything out. Would highly recommend!

Dr Donnelley was knowledgeable and easily relatable. I really appreciated that she wrote down the instructions about the cream she prescribed for my itchy skin, to send along with me. I thought that was very helpful. You have plenty of timewith her to ask any questions you might have. It was a very pleasant visit and we even planned what would happen at the next visit.

Dr. Donnelley was fantastic. A referral from another dermatologist - she was extremely professional & explained everything my skin was going through and every medication she prescribed. It was a fantastic experience from start to finishwith reception, speaking with the medical aid, to the pharmacy service she recommended. Definitely going back and looking forward to working with her!

The wait time was long but Dr Donnelly came in to explain what was going on and I agreed that she needed to see a new patient first and that I would wait. It was no problem. She is usually right on time. She thanked me as did her assistant.

Even as a new patient I got in right around my scheduled appointment time. Dr. Donnelly and her staff were thorough and helpful and she was able to answer a couple questions better than other Dermatologists I've seen in the past.I didn't feel rushed but the appointment didn't take longer than needed either. A very good experience.

Really thorough skin cancer check up. We had a car strategy for some questionable areas and how to proceed. Office staff are great. Assistant Ada was professional. I feel really comfortable with having a Doctor who will keep track of moleswith measurements and pictures. I was going to a medical hospital clinic and there were to0 many different doctors and an automated system where I could never get someone on the line.. Having one Dr is going to make my anxiety lever much lower. As a fair haired blue eyed gal, I am at high risk and I really need someone who has my back.
