Verified Patient Reviews
Very good, very efficient!
What an INCREDIBLE doctor. I had a very mild side effect from one of the medications. I called the office and he talked me through it and then called me again a couple hours later to check up on me- even though it was mild and not at all serious, he still took my health very seriously. He then talked me through other options- which, by the way, are already helping a ton. I couldn't possibly speak more highly of this derm. The wait time was very short and he was easy to talk to. He made sure I understood my condition, what he was prescribing me, and why. I'm re-booking in two weeks and wouldn't consider going anywhere else.
Doctor Scheinfeld is the most professional while entertaining dermatologist in NYC.
Dr. Scheinfeld is always on the proverbial money!
My first visit so it's hard to really assess. He seemed very knowledgable. A bit fast with the freeze gun. Should've warned me first. Also wished he let the novacaine take effect before he did the biopsy on my ear. I would recommend him.
He is very smart
Never a problem.
Dr. Scheinfeld is always professional and well informed. Never a problem.
Dr Scheinfeld is the best Dermatologist in NYC A true scientist. An extraordinary diagnostician. right to the heart of the problem kind of guy. love him!
I have used this doctor for many years and find him to be relentless in finding a cure for my skin problems. He is always polite, his office well run and there is never a long wait (if any). You never feel rushed and while he is with you, he is not distracted by outside issues.
Worst Dermatologist experience! I went here because I work around the area and the location was convenient. I came in because I needed to get some skin tags removed and regret the fact that I chose this doctor. The doctor has such a "heavy hand" when removing skin tag which was on top of the skin! It wasn't one of those that was very close to the skin. He ended up taking many layers below it, causing me to SCAR!!! MY SCAR IS NOW BIGGER THAN THE SKIN TAG THAT WAS REMOVED! If you value your skin, save yourself the headache and stay away. Also, when I told him he should have mentioned he was going to go deep into my skin to remove the tag, he asked if I was going to write a bad review on ZocDoc. That's what he cared for, a review on zocdoc.... not if I'm ok, or that my hand is now scarred!
Doctor was extremely rushed and did not fully explain condition to patient. Furthermore, multiple treatments were administered without proper explanation of the process and how it would help the condition. Overall, very disappointed with the quality of care from the doctor.
i received an accurate treatment to my complaints
Fantastic doctor. Almost zero waiting time. Highly efficient.
-short wait -very friendly -upfront about pricing and insurance coverage -quick and to the point I will definitely see Dr Scheinfeld again.
Noah was great ad explained every thing we'll to me highly recommend him.
Seen within 5 minutes of arrival. Excellent
Never a problem.
Dr. Scheinfeld is personable, prompt and super helpful. No wait time -- the office staff are polite and kind and it's an overall great experience.
I was not crazy about this doctor. Not the best bedside manner. I've been to other derms that have done the same procedures (pertaining to acne) and didn't charge my insurance as much as this office did.
Tried to prescribe antibiotics "just in case" for an viral infection. Dr. Scheinfeld didn't speak to me. Just mumbled what I had and wrote the script. The script was written with incorrect directions and had to call to find out what I was supposed to do. The receptionist told me what to do without even checking with the doctor or nurse.
Very knowledgable Doctor. He's quick and efficient. Howeve if you are looking for a doctor that will hold your hand for 15 minutes, he's not the right fit for you. But if you are looking for a doctor that will get the job done in a timely manner, he's your guy!
He has been my doctor, for years. Never a problem, The best.
Dr. Scheinfeld was excellent. He took the time to explain my diagnosis and the proper course of action. I did not feel rushed, and I think we discussed all the proper treatment options. I will definitely be returning.
I have suffered from truly debilitating rosacea for years. Dr. Scheinfeld has helped me much more than any other doctor. If you suffer from rosacea, Dr. Scheinfeld is the doctor for you!
very quick didnt feel like he had much time for me. very direct approach but not really explaining what was going on. only gave me immediately prescriptions and suggested to come back in 2 weeks again. not the most incredible experience.
Never a complaint. I have been a more than satisfied patient for many years.
He has been my doctor for a number of years. He is professional, caring and is always aware of the newest research in the field.
Dr. Schienfeld diagnosed me differently than dermatologists I have seen in the past. It was a refreshing new perspective on an old problem, and I'm happy with the results!
Dr. Scheinfeld has warmth and humor, knows what to do!
Always friendly and efficient.
He always gets right to the problem with great follow up.
The office is centrally located in Manhattan easily accessible via subway, bus or taxi. The staff is friendly, professional and efficient. They were familiar with my insurance and explained my deductible and coverage, Doctor S. is an outstanding physician. Besides diagnosing and treating my problem, he was personable and quite entertaining quoting chapter and verse from Plato and Shakespeare and directing it in a personal way. In other words, he made me feel at ease.
He's quirky but in the best way - I've been a patient of his for 7 years and he remembers everything. Truly wants the best for his patients and the staff is great too. No complaints ever!
Staff and doctor were efficient and caring.
One word - horrible. Extremely rushed, did not care to understand my problem, could not complete his sentences and spoke in very technical medical language that it was hard to follow what he was saying. Do not waste your time and spoil your mood by going to this doctor.
Never a problem. Professional office staff as well.
Dr Scheinfeld spent nearly an hour with me explaining skin cancer issues with me. I was initially very alarmed at the diagnosis, but the Doctor set my mind at ease and and helped me understand a sensible plan to move forward. Thank you Dr. Scheinfeld!
Never a problem, concerned, caring and knowledgeable.
No. Just no. Horrible bedside manner. I literally said less than 5 sentences the whole visit and just sat in the chair as he shoved consent forms in my face and then injected something into my skin as we was telling me the side effects of the injection. Thanks for that. I will never go here again.
Concerned, professional, prompt.
Amazing, dedicated, concerned.
The doctor was Ok. He did not seem too apathetic towards the patient and was boastful about his findings on his subject matter. He overall did not give a very good feeling of assuring me to solve my problem.
This was my first and only visit with Dr. Scheinfeld, so this could've been a fluke, everyone has their off-days I suppose. He was a nice enough guy, but he seemed pretty much out of it, and had trouble putting sentences together during my exam. It was a late afternoon appointment, so I suppose I could've been the last patient of the day, maybe he was already checked out.
Dr. Scheinfeld is clearly taking advantage of how messed up our healthcare system is in America. He is running people through that office so quickly and loading up on extra prodedures so he can bill as much as possible. I wouldn't call him unethical, because he clearly knows his stuff, but he speaks and moves so quickly you don't really know what's going on. Worst of all, whatever your insurance pays isn't enough for him. You'll get a bill a few months later for more.
Very informative. Great doctor.
Professional and respectful.
Staff was very busy but attentive. Dr. was amazing, Providing almost a complete diagnoses upon first sight. Very thorough and and communicative.
Knowledgeable, but dismissive and seemed in a rush.
I visited Dr. Scheinfeld's office for a specific skin problem that recently developed. He not only reviewed and treated my specific problem, but also checked out all of my skin areas and advised me on sun damaged areas. He was informative, professional and even humorous. He showed that he cared about my general well being and that made me feel good about the experience. I would definitely return to him.
Did not find him to be very professional. Threw some paper in front of me to sign quickly without giving me much time to read it. Removed a mole quickly before I fully understood what he was doing. Unclear directions on prescriptions.
Absolutely AVOID. Noah is all about making cash and will push onto you procedures that have nothing to do with your chief complaint (and he insists even after you've said "no, thank you" multiple times) so that he can charge a ridiculous amount to your health insurance plan. It's mind-boggling that Zocdoc would rate him so highly -- check out his Yelp reviews for a more accurate assessment. I have never written such a harsh review, but this physician engages in unethical behavior - in my opinion, he should have his board certification revoked.
Dr. Scheinfed was very efficient, and knowledgeable. I would recommend him without hesitation.
Dr. Schienfeld is the best! Sees me right away, listens, and treats my issues just right!
No wait. Great Dr. ++
Dr. is usually in a hurry. I think that's the new reality in medicine.
I haven't seen Dr. Scheinfeld since 2012. His original treatment has kept me symptom free until last week. I saw him today, and can honestly say that I feel better now than I have in week, when he was unavailable because of a conference he was attending. ( I saw 2 other doctors during that time and had no real relief)
He is very knowledgeable about his field and thorough in explaining it to you. Not many doctors will take the time to explain the science to a patient. He can seem rushed and curt at times but he is kind and determined to help you. I highly recommend him especially for those who have hard to treat, rare or painful diseases or need a diagnosis for something that has gone unidentified for long. His nurses are awesome as well.
Never a problem. Professional.
He was very thorough and pleasant throughout the examination.
I have recommended him to several friends and everyone has been satisfied. Friendly, knowledgeable advice.
No one asked if I needed to make a f/u appt. Now I have to call. A ltitle annoying.
Very helpful and did good amount of time to explain why the issue happened and how to best avoid it
My first review/experience wasn't so great. This time, Dr. Sheinfeld's bedside manner was great (perhaps he was having a bad day the first time I went). He asked me about concerns, if I knew about side effects of some medications/procedures, and listened. The staff was great as well. Wait time wasn't bad. Three people were ahead of me, I was out in about 30 minutes. I was able to do the whole visit (walking there and back) in an hour.
Dr. Scheinfeld called me in for a followup appointment telling me the sample they took of a cut of mine was showing signs of infection. I freaked out and saw him immediately. Once I got there before even looking at the cut he told me our bodies can typically fight off infections naturally and that I was okay. I don't understand why he couldn't just tell me this on the phone when he originally called. It was a waste of my time, and I got the impression he did this only to bill my insurance for another visit. He could tell I wasn't happy about this and offered a "free sample" for something I didn't even need to make it up to me. On top of that he is incredibly rude to his staff. He yells and belittles them right in front of patients. Horrible. A doctors office shouldn't be run like a used car business. People (patients and employees) should be treated with more respect.
Great doctor visit! Was in and out very quickly-- and was only in the waiting room for five minutes.
Doctor and office staff is excellent.
Dr. Scheinfeld spent maybe 3 minutes with me and was completely rude. He didn't even do an examination before prescribing something. He said if I had any follow up issues he would be out of town next week so he couldn't help me. What kind of a response is that? How about refer me to someone else? He was dismissive of the 1 question I had. He just said, "Yeah, I don't know," took his gloves off and left. Do NOT go here. Only nice thing I can say is his staff was friendly.
Never an issue.
Long wait time but doctor very nice and professional
Never a wait, always attentive, never a problem.
Never a problem.
The wait was a little long but once he came in it was quick and painless to have a suspicious mole removed. I also appreciated that he wasn't quick to shove medications at me.
Never a problem.
He is very nice, generous, quirky and smart. The appointment was too quick. It began and ended before it was scheduled to start. I guess this is good, but I needed to have him repeat ideas and and slow down. He seemed rushed- I would have appreciated meeting longer (a proper 20 minute session would have been good) with him to discuss my issues more slowly and more in more detail.
Came in on my lunch break, and was in and out in less than 20 minutes. This would have been great, if the take away was worth it. I left with a little less in my FSA and nothing gained as far as medical assistance. Bedside manner was lacking sincerity and it felt like he was rushing more than anything else. The two ladies that I dealt with, one for signing in and the other taking some more info when I went into the room, were very nice. The doctor simply kept quoting stats and data, which is important, but would be nice if it was accompanied by professional insight. I don't think I would go back again and if I had to do it over, I would choose a different doctor.
The doctor only writes escribes- so be sure you have a pharmacist that takes them.
Never a problem and would recommend him highly.
It was very quick procedure and straight forward but I would have liked if the Doctor had made check of his own looking for any other dermatological problems or concerns since it was my first visit.
Me gusto comprobar que las referencias que leí sobre el trató al paciente fueron acertadas... Nos sentimos muy a gusto en su consultorio. Busque un especialista en dermatología infantil para mi hija y aunque es muy pronto para ver resultados me siento segura de haber encontrado el médico apropiado.
Never a problem. Courteous, efficient, knowledgeable.
Dr Scheinfeld is great! I was seen right away and he took care of all my derm needs. The staff called in my rx right away and I even got samples. Definitely will go back!
Never a problem. Highly recommend him.
Great doctor. Made me feel comfortable and would recommend him.
Visited this doctor twice, out of convenience, given availability of time slots. First experience wasn't great so perhaps it was my fault for going back a second time! Doctor seemed to be in a rush in performing a procedure I went in for, which left several scars on my skin. Overall seemed quite disinterested in addressing what I came in for and didn't have the 'bedside' manner other doctors possess in talking the patient through what may be causing their issue and what they recommend. Dermatologist seemed to take an assembly line approach in processing as many patients as possible (at least this is how I felt).
Great experience! Short waiting time, knowledgeable and courteous staff. Doctor Scheinfeld was able to diagnose my problem immediately, prescribe treatment and sent me on my way. He is one of the best of I visited.
I would have to say my worst visit to a dermatologist. By the way, I would go to Yelp for better reviews. The ones on here seem to be filtered. Yelp has him at 1 or 2 stars which is very accurate. Let me sum up my 5 minute visit with you : I walk in, only to be ignored by a young receptionist that clearly hates her job. I know this because it was evident by her patient interaction that she did not want to be there. (Another reviewer called his receptionists children. I would have to agree. They sit there teasing each other like children the entire time you are in there waiting.) After waiting in the room for 5 minutes, the doctors walks in (in a rush with what looked like dry yogurt around his lips) and tells me that we are both men so if it's fine by me then I can just take off my clothes without a patient robe. I'm not a shy person so I agreed. Immediately after taking off my clothes he spends literally no more than 2 minutes looking at my body and naming off multiple medical terms that i don't understand. This ended with him telling me that everything looks "fine". Really? i have to ask you what those terms are? I actually had to stop him and ask him about each thing he named out. To top that all off, after asking about a bump on my nose and being advised by him not to do anything about it since it may scar, without permission he grabbed a tool and scraped the tip of the bump off. (I'm sorry!? i thought you just told me that it would scar and I told you lets forget about it!) This caused my bump to bleed and become inflamed. It has been a week since the visit and now the bump is more evident and appears darker. Thanks for the scar Doc! Simply put, this doctor is clearly more concerned with his finances than his clients. I would recommend that he rethink his staff, take a class on social interaction, and to spend more time with his patients rather than charging them for an inefficient 5 minute screening.
He has been my doctor for a number of years. Dedicated, professional and respectful.
Bedside manner was very rushed. Didn't explain that the additional procedures in addition to the annual check up may incur a significant deductible (didn't advise me to check with my insurance, just went ahead and did the procedure). Also left a visible scar when I was told it wouldn't be noticeable.
Dr. Scheinfeld was very courteous and professional. He works quickly as others have mentioned, but time is money.
While the doctor saw me right away, he rushed the appointment
He is an excellent doctor. My entire family decided to switch and go only to him
This was one of the worst experiences I've had a doctor's office EVER had. I went to have warts removed from my neck. I've had this done before by other doctors, however my insurance changed and I had to find a new doctor. First, I had multiple scheduling issues with this office, they asked me to move my appointment last minute, and then didn't properly record the changes. Then, when I was actually there, the doctor came in and looked disheveled. He had something on his face, his pants were dirty, and one of the hems was falling out. He had weird mannerisms, and was curt, and awkward. It was very bizarre, and i felt extremely uncomfortable, had I had any time to think about anything I think I would have gotten up and left. However, the Dr. seemed in such a hurry that before I really knew what was happening he had already pinched my neck to number the area he was removing the warts from. Every other time I've had this done, the doctors have used a razor blade and have been very careful and meticulous. Dr. Scheinfeld used scissors, and when he first started, his assistant goes, "no, not there". It was all very rushed, and seemed like he was doing a haphazard job. The whole appointment took no more than 5 minutes, and I think I interacted with the doctor for less than 3 minutes of that. If you're really in a hurry, and being fast is all that matters, then this might be good, but I felt extremely uncomfortable, and want someone who is going to take their time and make sure they're doing a good job when cutting into me. It was also very concerning that he himself did not seem clean...
Never a problem and would recommend him, without reservation.
I spent maybe 5 min max with the dr. He seemed very rushed. He also didn't seem to have a genuine care for any of my concerns. It was like a typical visit, collect the copay spend 30 seconds with the patient and be on your way. Very surprised since other people has such high recommendations of him.
It felt rushed.
This is my second appointment with Dr. Scheinfeld, no complaints at all. He knows his craft well and I am confident that the treatment he prescribed is the best course of action.
It was quick and to the point. A little too quick though and wish he spent a little more time on the full body check. But he did what I needed
Very fast visit. There is quick turnover.
Strange bedside manner. Didn't really help solve the issue I came in for.
Excellent. Never a problem.
Doctor Scheinfeld is very thorough and was attentive to my needs. He explained treatment options very simply and made a recommendation. He is very smart and very genuine.
I was looking for a new dermatologist, and Doctor Scheinfeld had same day availability. Not only was there no wait, I was in and out in 25 minutes, including significant face-time with the doctor, as well as a thorough skin check and biopsy procedure. All very professional and nice.
Dr. made me feel horribly uncomfortable with how he looked at me and touched me, e.g. rubbing my earlobe, even though my ears were not at all part of the exam. Creeped me out!
Doctor saw me right away. He was professional will wait for the follow up
As good as it gets!
Expert in HS should see if looking for help and treatments
The bills are always askew. The office staff is insolent and screamed at me when questioned about the practices. My insurance assures me they are coding things improperly. Dr Scheinfeld, should he read this, needs to fire some people. Aside from that, he's ok.
too fast. didn't feel important. he prescribed medicine too quickly as if I were a bother and he just wanted to get to the next patient or his lunch. I am making another appointment at another facility to actually take care of what he didn't.
Never a problem.
He's very knowledgeable with a slightly quirky personality, which I like.
Never a problem, perfect!
Quick and professional. Good sense of humor too. Dr. Scheinfeld was a pleasure to meet and came up with a course of action that I was comfortable with.
Okay i read all the reviews, some were bad, some were good. I should have listened to the bad reviews because they were all very accurate. First of all, this doctor charges more than other doctors, significantly more, but he is not any better. In fact, i felt very rushed; he looked at me quickly and brushed it away. Yes, i get that he has experiences and probably knows what he is doing, but hey, can you explain!?? I am not you, i cannot read your mind! Overall, as a doctor, he is not patient, neither did he offer any constructive medical advice. Now lets talk about the medicine he prescribed; lets just say most people cannot afford the medicine, i could have bought a Burberry trench coat with that amount of cash. The doctor's office gave me a coupon, which is obviously insignificant. So i figured he probably gets a commission from the medicine that he prescribes. BOO. very bad experience. if you are in midtown manhattan, i highly suggest you to book one of the popular doctors. They are popular for a reason!!!!
Prompt appointment. Caring doctor.
Very well-run practice--no waiting around. Dr. Scheinfeld diagnosed and prescribed treatment for 3 different problems with great success.
No wait time. Attentive staff and physician.
Great attention, fantastic location and premises and the Doctor is very nice and professional.
Never a problem with Dr. Scheinfeld or his staff.
Dr. Scheinfeld runs a very busy office, but it is well-organized, so one doesn't wait long to see him. He has very competent staff working with him. He is willing to spend time to explain the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. He is very current on scientific developments in his discipline. I rate him highly.
The previous dermatologist I went to said I needed up to ten or even more appointments to gradually freeze the thing I wanted to get rid of until it would shrivel and fall off by itself. I did not had patience for all that, so I went for a second opinion. Doctor Scheinfeld took one look and just cut it right out. In total I was done in less than 40 minutes. That included 10 minutes wait, answering a few questions, signing a few forms, surgery, stitches and booking the follow up appointment. If you value your time - this is the guy to go to.
Dr. Scheinfeld is very knowledgeable and thorough in his diagnosis. I was impressed by the experience.
Office was fast and efficient. Staff at the front desk were of the usual sort, mildly DMV-ish, but overall they were fast, efficient and got me in and out, they called in my prescriptions and I would readily return. Doctor could have been a little more friendly, but I don't need a pal, just a good doc. This place seemed right on to me for what I needed.
Never a problem.
Great experience--doctor was cordial, informative, and did a great job during the appointment.
had minor allergy, went to the doc office. the doctor immediately asked for a biopsy test to two different labs which results in high cost from both the doc office and two biopsy offices. as a patient i felt like the doc should be responsible asking for patient's opinions and let patient know all the costs instead of pushing patients into expensive tests. both doc and labs couldn't reach any conclusions in the end. when i called later asking about the bill the receptionist was very impatient and cut my line after one minute. the service and attitude were definitely bad. i would not recommend this place to anyone.
Never a long wait, usually right away. Never feel rushed. Compassionate and intelligent.
HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING. My severe acne (caused by a hormonal disorder) was treatment-resistant, but Dr. S sat me down and said "we're going to find what works for you." He was as determined as I was to help me, and that was such a huge relief. Just a warning: His bedside manner isn't the friendliest (zero small talk, zero jokes, very fast paced, few pauses) but it turns out he is a very attentive and efficient doctor after all. His personality grows on you-- especially as you start seeing results! I'd say his manner is strictly professional. I always see the doctor, never an internist, and I always wait well under 30min--usually 10 min. at most. The whole experience takes well under an hour. The staff is young and on-top of things. Test results come back in a matter of days, the doctor is readily accessible via phone. The waiting area and patient rooms are clean and modern.
He has no bedside major very careless and unsympathetic I would recommend to no one
I had a rash that I was concerned about and booked an appointment with him for after work. He immediately wanted to give me a biopsy instead of talking to me about waiting for it to clear up (because it did) He was very rough with the biopsy and it felt rushed. I was left with an ugly scar on my leg as a result. I wish I hadn't gone to see him because I wouldn't have to deal with this scar now
Dr. Scheinfeld was very quick and efficient with his diagnosis. However, I felt like he was trying to rush through our appointment, which ended up lasting only a few minutes
he performed a procedure I did not ask for (or at least charged for one I did not ask for). then snuck in another procedure which took 10 seconds (literally) I did not ask for at all. when I called him to figure out what the claims corresponded to in real life, he immediately agreed to drop one of them and dial down the other if I paid that day (shady, no?). dishonest conduct throughout or at least that was my feeling.
Informative helpful zeros in on problems and solves them always has time to talk
Did a really good job knows a lot about the skin and knows how to apply it to help me.
I felt the visit was bit rushed. The doc was in and out of the room in about 7 minutes. Did not give me any time to ask questions. He did appear quite smart and proficient in what he was doing.
Really nice guy, performed a skin screening since I hadn't had one in a while and was able to get my skin health needs situated in a timely manner.
If you have been to other doctors and been dissatisfied. Give Dr. Scheinfeld a try,
It was very good...he was knew right away what medications and ointments would work for my skin...he was very knowledgeable...his office is very clean, and his staff is pleasant.
Never a problem.
Went for a consult on a rash that had formed on the sole of my left foot. Dr. Scheinfeld sent his nurse in, and then briskly followed and began asking questions (no introduction). Shortly thereafter--without discussing with me, the patient--ordered two shots which were incredibly painful, and then took a scalpel to my foot and shaved off skin from my heel! It bled like crazy and I could not walk for a week. He then gave me 4 different prescriptions which were completely out of my price range! I was treated like a guinea pig, not a patient, and never returned for my follow-up appointment. One of the creams prescribed did end up clearing the rash, but not without much pain, discomfort, and interruption of my day-to-day life!
very through kind service
Knowledgable and good company
Knowledgeable but didn't seem interested in listening to my specific symptoms or concerns. Felt very abrupt and rushed.
Through and caring
Doctor was great - very personable, a good sense of humor, and very thorough. The wait was very long, I wasn't called in to the exam room until over 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment time and after a brief questionnaire with one of the office personnel in the exam room, had to wait a significant amount of time for the doctor to complete the skin screening. Once it was determined that an irregular mole needed to be looked at further, a third long wait for the doctor's return ensued. In total, I was at the office for nearly two hours, most of which was time spent waiting, but recognizing the extended wait time, the doctor provided me with a box of free samples of face moisturizer! Today seemed particularly busy and the wait time was in stark contrast to my two other experiences at this office when I was seen immediately upon my arrival. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Scheinfeld.
Not impressed overall and a very long wait so not sure what the point of an appointment is.
The doctor was excellent. This was my first time and I was a bit nervous. He walked in and made me feel very at home. I now found a dermatologist.
Caring and professional doctor. You won't be disappointed.
This was the worst doctor I've ever been to. I went to him for skin-related issues, and he went outside his area of expertise and demanded that I begin to take depression medication (which he prescribed for me). He then called me on the phone, after getting blood test results, and told me that the situation was life and death and that I needed to see a specialist immediately. When I asked him if he could give me a number to call, he said they were all busy and then hung up the phone. Never go to this doctor.
Caring, efficient doctor. Works until the correct diagnosis is achieved and successful treatment.
I have recommended Dr. Scheinfeld to a bunch of people. He is fast, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. I like his no-nonsense approach!
Very good guy and doctor!
Great staff, professional and courteous. The Dr is very thorough and very knowledgable I highly recommend.
Came to have my moles checked for the first time. I pointed one out that seemed suspicious to me. Dr. Scheinfeld took a simple of it. I had to sign a paper preventing me from suing him if i get a scar... I got a bit worried but signed. Now I have a round scar in my back that looks weird...
This a very business-oriented physician. He is knowledgeable enough, but will insist on seeing you every two weeks to continue prescribing you medication, and he is very pushy and forward about it. This is disconcerting for me as a patient because you hope to be able to trust a doctor to be looking out for your best interest. It was also problematic for me as I have a very high copay and it was difficult to budget with having to also pay for the prescriptions etc. He also hurries through his appointments and often won't let you finish a thought before he jumps in and starts telling you what he thinks about it, which is frustrating and often times makes you lose track of the things you need to ask about.
Concerned caring doctor.
Very knowledgeable, focused and kind. I arrived with only one issue but was given a comprehensive exam, many recommendations on other conditions i have, and a follow up scheduled.
I have used Dr. Scheinfeld for a number of years. Wouldn't use anyone else.
Dr Schofield is very personable, well mannered and quite funny. I felt at ease and his bedside manner was quite refreshing. I am definitely keeping him as my dermatologist and will highly recommend him to others. His staff is awesome as well.
Never a problem. Excellent physician.
Awesome doctor, very detail oriented.
The whole experience was quite good. Minimum waiting time and the doctor explained clearly what to expect on the process.
I chose Dr. Scheinfeld because of the reviews and I made the right choice. He is a very lovely man.
This was the worst doctor experience I have ever had. (Which is a testament to how many good doctors I have found on ZocDoc!) I almost walked out during the appointment, but didn't because they make you pay upfront before you even see the doctor. The problem is he does not listen, will literally not let you get one word in to explain the problem. It was insulting. Then he asked me to sign a waiver saying I would not sue him if his treatment caused skin cancer down the road. No, thank you! I could not get out of that office fast enough. I can say without reservation that it wasn't just a bad day or singular experience; it's his complete lack of bedside manner that is the problem.
Dr. Scheinfeld has been my doctor for a number of years. Would not think of using anyone else.
Dr. Scheinfeld's office is hands down the best place for the treatment of Psoriasis in the City of New York. He has up-to-the-minute equipment, both with broadband UV tubes and XTrac XeCl Pulsed Lasers. And his staff is much, much better trained in their use than the office a few blocks east of here. Futhermore, Dr. Scheinfeld is fully current on the latest research in the field; and continues to publish. I trust his judgement on the wide array of topical, injectable, and biologic treatments on the market or soon to be released. If you have Psoriasis, Vitiligo, or Eczema, go here first!
Completely professional and super knowledgeable. Highly recommend
Easiest appointment ever. Filled all my paperwork out online, signed it all when I got there, waited about 5 min. to see the doctor (my appt. was at 9am), and was out by 9:20. The staff and doctor were both friendly, and he made sure to check if there were any other concerns as long as I was already there.
He is an ok dermatologist but very impersonal and rushed. He asked no questions and just threw medications at me. His assistant was in the room and he never even asked if I was ok with that - overall I may go back if I don't find anything better but recommend him to others? No.
Hello, I went to see Dr. Scheinfeld today. His office was quick, professional and efficient. Dr. Sheinfeld had a good bedside manner. He was quick, confident and really listened. I truely believe he has a vested interest in your health.
This doctor is terrible. He didn't explain anything to me and perform any examination before giving me the treatment. Very rude and unprofessional. Will never go back again.
Appointment felt very rushed. He performed a minor procedure without explaining to me what it was first.
Dr. Scheinfeld is wonderful to my 92 year old mother. He listens to her and addresses her concerns.
I have H.S. this man and his staff are saving my life. I was in bad bad shape have had this for 20 plus years only doc to understand and treat.
Very through and attentive to symptoms.
Perfect. Never a complaint.
Very experienced and knowledgeable, straight to the point. Would recommend
did a great job helped with all my issues attentive and his staff is great too
Doctor and his staff are exceptionally friendly, nice, and caring. I arrived 15 minutes early and they were able to get me in right away - almost no waiting at all! The doctor is VERY nice - especially compared to most Manhattan doctors who couldn't care any less and don't take time to answer questions or treat you like a human being. This is the first doctor I have ever reviewed because he truly deserves the praise! Please choose him!
The doctor made me feel very rushed and barely looked at my skin.
Good and easy appointment. Took care of what needed to be done. Good location, easy to get to. Clean, nice office.
Dr. Scheinfeld has a terrific bedside manner, matched only by the professionalism and warmth of his stellar office staff. Will definitely be back!
I was instantly pleased with my visit; such a lovely clean office, friendly staff, & Dr. Scheinfeld was delightful! Being that I suffer from Alopecia Areata & treatment involves less than enjoyable injections to the scalp finding a doctor that makes you feel comfortable is obviously important. I found all that & more here in their office. I initially booked my appointment off of his amazing reviews, and I can now vouche that the office certainly lives up to their reputation! Whatever your dermatology needs may be, this is definitely the way to go.
Doctor was rude and rushed me out without explaining anything. When I asked questions he was sarcastic and condescending with his answers. I felt rushed and disrespected. Never going back.
Never a complaint
Got right to the point! I was in and out in 15 minutes - and not because he was in a rush. I was able to ask all the questions I wanted.
Felt very rushed when I went for my check up and he did not take the time to answer my questions in "non-medical" terms. He brushed off any answers by saying it was nothing to worry about.
Excellent. Dr. Scheinfeld makes you feel comfortable and takes care of business.
I was lucky enough to start seeing Dr. Noah Scheinfeld... the man himself... Dr. Noah Scheinfeld is one of the best Dermatologist I have ever seen in the last 20 years. He is amazing, friendly, personal, caring.. waiting to heal you to say the least. Dr. Noah Scheinfeld received his MD at Yale University, also an assistant clinical professor of Dermatology at Columbia University Medical Center which leads me to believe he's a WIZARD of Dermatology. I was very pleased by the service of staff (The girls know their stuff) at Dr. Noah Scheinfeld office. It's hard to find such equipped staff/Dermatologist office with in NYC. A++++++++++++++
I thought Dr. Scheinfeld was a very attentive and caring doctor. He listened to me, made his suggestions, answered my questions and left me feeling like I was heard and on the way to looking and feeling better with my skin and problems. I will refer any person looking for a dermatologist for cosmetic or medical reasons to Dr. Scheinfeld!
Caring and efficient.
Friendly, knowledgeable, and got the job done!
I was charged for a procedure i didn't undergo which was removed eventually. But due to their procedure clause was charged for extraction which was really him just gliding cold metal on my T-zone. no pressure, no extraction which insurance did not cover fully. Not the best experience but certainly not the worst.
He's all business.
No nonsense took care of my issue with minimal discomfort.
Professional and courteous
did a great job
The right amount of time, caring, efficient
Never any issues
I felt very comfortable and confident. Professional staff. Organized and efficient.
Never a problem.
Fantastic, he was very professional and courteous. Answered all my questions and did a complete examination. I was very pleased with my visit. Thank you Dr.Scheinfeld
to the point is helping me to understand my condition better is coordinating care with my other doctors
He made me give him a good rating and was very rude.
answered all my questions was very through.
He was courteous and professional. I felt the visit was a bit brief, though that could just be due to my particular case. Office felt a bit dated, like it hadn't changed since the 80s. Overall a generally good experience, though.
Very straightforward and prompt. Listened to my concerns and together we talked about solutions. Highly recommended, wonderful staff, and a doctor who doesn't waste time!
An excellent doctor. Knows his stuff, treats efficiently and carefully and in general goes the extra distance to help the patient. Plus, he's very personable and an excellent conversationalist.
great visit--answered all my questions; explained in simple terms (so i understood what i was dealing with); addressed my concerns and booked a follow up appt so i dont have to worry about future availability (!)
Very knowledgable and professional
informative, answered questions, and explained procedures. definitely a better visit than my first time here that felt somewhat rushed. glad i gave him a second chance because i now feel comfortable and in good hands.
He was good. Very well informed and asked the right question. Very rushed however.
Never any problem.
helpful as always
excellent continues to help with my skin issues
keeps on trying to help with my difficult to treat problems
Wished I met him years ago. Best doctor ever
The time spent with the doctor was brief and his bedside manner a bit awkward. Eager to prescribe meds to treat symptoms but not to identify the source.
he always gets the job done
Excellent, as usual.
kind caring efficient
always trying to make me better
kind and caring
good advice and kind attention
thought it was excelent
kind creative approach to stopping my itch
Dr Scheinfeld is very efficient - he never wastes a second of your time. Whatever you need done, it'll be over before you realize what happened. Highly recommended!
Very satisfactory visit.
Helpful and Kind
Very knowledgeable, honest and informative.
He is very competent and effective.
Great doctor, courteous staff
Continues to help me greatly
He is a fine doctor and has kept my scalp clear
Great experience overall. He is very knowledgeable and informative on my condition. He even emailed me a research paper who wrote on the topic! I highly recommend him.
efficient kind and caring
He and his staff have been a life saver for me
keeps my scalp clear
Dr. Scheinfeld is the best!!
Dr. Scheinfeld is very sweet and willing to listen. He does not "preach" but makes many good suggestions for what to do and what the choices are. I have psoriasis and his treatment has been very helpful to me. The office is very well staffed and are all the helpers are very nice.
His diagnosis was right on the money, and his treatment made me 1000% better
He is excellent
he is helpful and efficent
Dr. Scheinfeld was excellent. He's straight to the point! He gave his full attention and honest opinion. He didn't string us along. The staff are very courteous and attentive.
Dr Scheinfeld was awful. He was unfriendly and was in a major rush. I saw him for less than 5 minutes. He rushed through the procedure which caused pain. I have been to many dermatologists and have never experienced anything like this. I will not return.
helpful as always
He was great. He is a genius of the skin. While he might not spend the most time with you, it is because he knows what the problem is right away. He was able to diagnose a problem that many other doctors were not able to treat. I am very glad I went there.
Dr. Scheinfeld is a wonderful, knowledgeable, and caring physician. His office staff are caring, personable, and efficient. I would highly recommend his office to any person seeking a very qualified doctor.
helpful as always
Doctor Scheinfeld goes above and beyond his job to make sure patients get the service and help they need. I highly recommend him.
Helpful and through as always easy to get in and get out
Beware the inflated ratings. This guy is an a-hole. He is an arrogant man who clearly has a disdain for his patients and his profession. All the negative reviews are true. He: * Strolled in yelling "Salutations!" without introducing himself. * Rushed through everything. Didn't give me a chance to explain my history and didn't even really examine my skin. * Started spit-firing pharma jargon that he knows no patient would understand. * Shoved a don't-sue-me form in my face (which released him from 'scarring' me) and then scraped my nose for "blackheads," which amounted to two swipes at the corners of my nose. Now he has another fee to charge insurance. * When asked about his treatment plan for me, kept going in circles, making very little sense. * Prescribed antibiotics without clearly explaining how they would help and seemed super annoyed when I asked how often/when I should take them. * Claimed those meds were free when each of them had a copay at the pharmacy. * Boasted "I have publications," as if I gave a damn about that. * Bad-mouthed my previous dermatologist. * Kept repeating stuff like "I want you to be perfect." Fake and creepy as hell. * Said "I want you to know I'm trying" at the end of the appointment. Anyone who needs to say that clearly isn't. Good doctors never have to say "I'm trying"; their bedside manners speak for themselves. I really hope this man is seeing a psychiatrist because he seems like he has some major issues with egotism, grandiosity, and narcissism -- and he acts like he's about to snap (if he hasn't already). For the love of god, TALK to someone professional about your frustrations with insurance companies and not making enough money; don't patronize your patients. What's even sadder is that he is evidently trying to wipe away his tarnished online reputation by opening another Dr. S account on yelp (to no avail) and flooding Zoc Doc with likely fake high ratings (ZD please beef up your account verification). Do you see all the 5-star one-liners and "perfects"? You are smarter than that.
Caring, quick, efficient
It was goog just a little rushed
Getting better very happy
excellent job as always,
Helped me on many issues
great job as always
Great Job as always
I have a rare genetic disease. Over the past 30 or so years, I have been to about 10 dermatologists, 6 allergists and a hematologist. I have also been to a cancer center. Every doctor has tried to help me to no avail. Although there is no cure for this disease, Dr. Scheinfeld has been reasonably successful in relieving the symptoms and I expect he will be even more successful given more time. Dr. Scheinfeld is a, caring, knowledgeable, persistent, personable, and nice man. I would highly recommend Dr. Scheinfeld to any person that is in need of a qualified dermatologist.
Dr. Scheinfeld is a genius when it comes to skin problems. In seconds he was able to identify not only the risk factors but also the histories of my various moles, freckles, and other skin issues with surprising accuracy. Will definitely return for an annual screening!
It was great I got what I wanted and I will be going back based upon my 1st visit
careful caring and a great listener
He is an incredible doctor who really cares.
Professional, friendly, speedy! The staff was extremely nice; the doctor was all business, but still treated me with respect and care. Highly recommended.
He and his staff are absolutely excellent professionals.
Dr. Scheinfeld was professional, courteous and timely. I highly recommend him.
Did a great job for me.
effectively gave me advice
It was exelent.
Liked him a lot, a bit expensive if you're still paying up your deductible for the year, so ask ahead of time
Did a good job and gave me accurate advice
Fast, caring, efficient
He did a great job and answered all my questions, i would recommend him to any one who has a skin problem
Needed a day-of appointment and was able to find one easily. Took me within the first 10 minutes of arrival. They had lost my paperwork that I had filled out on ZocDoc so had to refill that out but besides that, great experience.
Professional, efficient and caring
Not having a long wait time is great.. however once in the room with Dr Noah everything seems rushed! and is. I am usually out of there in less than 5 mins. My Acne never seems to clear up and he prescribes the same things all the time. I wish he would slow down and have more client relations.
The Doctor and his staff were both empathetic and efficacious in their "bedside manner",explanation of procedures to be implimented and actual execution of said procedures.Their concern for my comfort and my understanding of my condition was abundantly clear to me.All procedures were painless and comfortably executed by both Dr. Scheinfeld and his staff.
He did a through job and I would recommend him
Professional and to the point as always
The doctor is very awkward. He avoids eye contact or shake hands. He is very short with his staff. He seems very knowledgeable however he has very little social skills.
He always takes his time and explains everything clearly. Could not ask for a more competent or caring doctor.
Dr. Scheinfeld has always been effective in clearing up whatever skin issue I have in a jiffy. I have recommended him many times over to friends, with the caveat that they should take his bedside manner with a grain of salt. He is usually brisk and in hurry and doesn't leave a lot of time for questions or consideration. That being said, he really knows his stuff.
I found Dr. Scheinfeld to be very thorough. He came up with the right diagnosis, and I found him to be very helpful. I would recommend him for my friends and family.
I will need protracted treatment with phototherapy. Dr Scheinfeld has a light box which few private dermatology has and an excimer laser so he has all that i need to get better. His staff was kind and caring
He is an outstanding caring doctor who took the time to answer all my questions. I recommend him to anyone seeking a dermatologist
He was very efficient and I was taken only a few minutes after my apt time; which in the city rarely happens. I would go back to him in the future.
I was surprised how quickly I was in and out. Will definitely be coming here again.
Very thorough, good personality and very professional
Very direct, comprehensive and quick service.
Excellent in all ways.
Always excellent. A great doctor with a great staff.
waste of time . And the receptionist was treating me as nothing , i never saw this kind of service in USA it was so awful . i will never use zocdoc again .
He's always fast and thorough. Great Dermatologist.
Learn to show some emotion and not seem like you are rushing from patient to patient. It makes for a slightly unpleasant experience. Not a bad guy by any means.
It's was really good
He's all business, you don't get to spend much time with him, but he is effective and gets the job done.
I think it was a rush appointment. He barely spent 5 minutes. My problem was given little attention and it was more like a generic treatment. I just could not have all my questions answered because it was a race as to who finished first. I went to this doctor based on the ZocDoc review, but since there were a lot patients waiting, my appointment was compromised. I can't speak for the treatment yet, because I have just started the medication.
It is always perfect!
The doctor detected one problem but completely ignored the other when it was in front of his eyes. This caused me to go to some other doctor. Double fees!
No issues. Wonderful
Professional and helpful. Very comfortable manner.
Professional and caring.
Very knowledgeable and speedy service
it was better than other dermatologists i've visited. Dr Scheinfeld focuses on health-related skin issues, not cosmetics.
Liked his friendly, no-nonsense approach
Wise physician. Excellent.
Professional and caring.
Has been consistently great.
He seems competent. He does not spend any time with you and really seems to run a factory. That having been said, he is respectful, courteous and his staff is very good. He is just nothing exceptional.
Couldn't ask for anything bettter.
Professional and caring.
He is in rush and didn't spend enough time with the patient. The visit is less than 2 mins. He doesn't explain anything and just give you a few sample and charge your insurance. It doesn't help much! I would not recommend him to my friend.
Always more than perfect.
Noah was good and efficient in getting to the root of my problem and he even gave me free samples for a product that my insurance did not cover BUT he had a terrible bedside manner - I felt very uncomfortable and would not recommend him.
Professional, yet caring.
Never a complaint.
The doctor came in the appointment in a rush, didn't introduce. Himself or really ask any questions. Said he was going to do an extraction for blackheads, tabbed my nose closed, and without any tenderness started digging the blackheads out of my nose. My face was bleeding and I had to go back to work. He shoved some samples into my hands and left the room. I was told that they would contact me in a month for a "follow up" visit so the doctor can write a prescription. So, i am going to be charged again for this man to write on paper. The whole process took about 10 minutes. No good bye, no have a nice day. They just left me in the room. The girls at the front desk were pushy and eating while they shoved paperwork in my face. Overall, I will not be going back.
Dr. Scheinfeld and his office work VERY efficiently. Through ZocDoc you can fill out all the paperwork ahead of time, then just show photo ID, insurance card, and co-pay when you arrive. I was visiting with Dr within 10 minutes of arrival at office. I had several minor conditions to discuss and he had quick, no-nonsense response to all of them, so much so that it was making me laugh a bit. Exactly how I wish all doctors visits went, quick and productive.
He was disgusting. He was rude, didn't listen to me at all, and was extremely rough, even pulling up my shirt without asking. Avoid.
Dr. Scheinfeld is a very competent, very professional doctor. I had a severe condition when I went to him and prescribed the correct course of action. He even made himself available over email, and checked in on me around midnight once to make sure I was okay. Although his mannerism may come across as brusque, he genuinely cares for his patients.
It was great!
Never a problem.
The doctor is an expert and honest. Im very pleased with my visit.
The man loves his work. Fast, Efficient, Very Knowledgeable
He took time to listen, seemed knowledgeable, and the wait time wasn't bad.
The nurses were extremely kind, and I did not wait more than about 10 minutes. He was sort of in and out, but that was fine for my purposes...I was on my lunch break! He gave me as many samples and coupons as he could, which I really appreciated.
He is a doctor who truly cares about his patients.
Long wait, two minute visit with doctor, no explanations
FAST! And professional.
Excellent as always
Prompt visit. Very efficient and professional treatment
Liked the lack of waiting and how efficient the doctor was in dealing with my issue, but I felt rushed throughout the visit.
Concerned, considerate and professional.
Perfect, wonderful doctor.
Dr. Scheinfeld is obviously a knowledgable guy with a passion for his work, and a healthy respect for the science behind it. He is a no-nonsense clinician who treats you like a grownup, presents the facts, and helps you make an informed decision. He thoroughly answered all my questions, and even offered to share his research work. If you are looking for hand-holding and a box of tissues, he may not be your style. If you are looking for a capable doc who knows his sh*t, book an appointment, and don't be afraid to ask questions.
Nice guy. Friendly staff. A+
Quick and expert diagnosis! Nice office staff too. If I lived in NY he'd be my dermatologist.
He was friendly and interesting. Clearly in a rush so be sure to ask him all of your questions before your appointment is over.
He was really quirky and nice - really good bedside manner!
Prompt, caring, professional, as always.
Patient, friendly, knowledgeable, thorough.
Got me in right away thorough and professional.
I thought he did a very quick and through job.
Prompt and professional, as well as caring.
He's very knowledgeable and quickly prescribed me what I needed. He works quickly but he gets the job done so I don't mind that. Would go again.
I don't feel like he ever takes time and listens my concerns. He sounds/looks always in rush.
No problems at all.
Smooth as silk.
Timely and knowledgeable. Will continue seeing Dr Scheinfeld in the future.
Very concerned, friendly and observant.
He doesn't care about patients. Just churns through to bill insurance
No problems at all, perfect. Always recommend him to my friends.
Always top notch! Recommend him highly to all my friends.
So I just visited Dr. Scheinfeld yesterday after a terrible reaction to food. He is an amazing doctor and the medication he prescribed instantly helped my skin. Dr. Scheinfeld is a courteous doctor who also happens to be funny! I really appreciate how kind the staff was to me as well. If you are in Manhattan, or anywhere close, and if you are looking for a dermatologist you owe yourself a visit to Dr. Scheinfeld.
The appointment was good, but far too expensive, and that was before I got mailed a bunch of additional fees that I didn't even agree to.
If you want someone who will rush and answer your questions flippantly, then he's your guy!He was really rushing the process no explanations. What was weird to me was that he was rushing and I was the only patient there that day. He was also really quick to just prescribe rather than assess.
I completely agree with that one reviewer far below about this guy pulling out- almost plucking out- a sample from your skin and then produces a paper for you to sign that you just had a biopsy procedure. And in my case, he didn't even let me read the paper so after I singed it, I got to know I'll owe him a LOT of money because my insurance won't pay for it! He and his staff, is seriously creepy.
Considerate, concerned and thorough.
Dr. Scheinfeld and the rest of his staff were very professional, courteous and helpful. I did not wait long at all before I was seen. The appointment was quick and informative. I would highly recommend Dr. Scheinfeld to anyone.
Shortest doctor's visit ever! (not including 30+ min of wait time) The doctor spent literally 2 minutes. He heard me describing the problem, saw my face (not even took a close look), told me what it is, and the medication he was going to put me on. He didn't ask me any question, didn't allow any time to ask him any question. It felt like he's treating me not as a patient but something on his list to check off: Ok, this one is done, next! It's very unpleasant feeling.
Rushed, bad advise, waited for 30+ mins to see him for less than 5mins
definitely knows what he is doing.
I am someone who tends to avoid writing feedback online, but feel compelled to do so after a particularly bad experience with Dr. Scheinfeld. I went in for a standard mole check and to treat a discoloration in my face. Although he did see me roughly on-time, once the actual appointment started, Dr. Scheinfeld was speeding through it as if he couldn't spare a second to actually engage me as a patient. He was speaking incredibly quickly and his effort was very far from diligent. I have a history of skin cancer in my family so know what a proper check-up looks like having gone to many dermatologists in the past. I could barely get a word in before he gave me a few subscriptions, decided to take a biopsy of a mole on my back then send me on my way. I received no follow-up call for the results of the biopsy and when I called in because the cream subscribed for the face discoloration was not working, I never received a call back. If you are someone who likes a doctor who is attentive, treats you like an individual as opposed to just one of many appointments in the day, I would avoid Dr. Scheinfeld.
Dr. Scheinfeld saw me right away. He took some time to talk with me about my ailments even though I was the last patient and was late. His staff was polite and I got what I needed and got out of the office with a prescription in under 30 minutes from walking in the door. I will definitely visit Dr. Scheinfeld again.
Couldn't be better. Would recommend highly.
Well-,mannered, educated, confidential
Dr. Scheinfeld was very personable, easy to talk to and gets you in and out quickly. I will definitely be recommending him!!
SO CREEPY and weird.The only reason I went to him was because of the good reviews on here, and I honestly do not know how other people rated this Doctor so well. HE did NOTHING for me and was rude, rough, and didn't care about anything.He told me I had sun damage and didn't understand what the purpose of my appt was. The took a swab of a rash on my face and dug the Q-tip into me..and worse didn't even know what prescription to give me, and just was like oh well I guess we will try this one. Told me that he would give me a free sample, and I waited another 20 minutes for that. HORRIBLE CREEPY MAN.
Got in pretty quick. Doc comes in, kind of does a once-over (it was for a yearly checkup). Didn't use the magnifier thing, didn't try to hide his impatience at being asked questions, and pretty much rushed me through, said "clean bill of health" and sent me out to pay. Also, he warned me that the Yelp reviews were unfairly negative because he didn't pay, or something. Most of the reviews echoed sentiments similar to mine: terrible bedside manner. Go somewhere else.
Kind, thorough, and took care of all my concerns quickly.
Always takes the time to properly diagnose and presents different options.
Great Service and speedy turn around. If I am on time I never have to wait.
The staff were very professional and polite. The doctor was very thorough and explained all of the options to me. Would definately recommend to others.
Amazing, caring doctor.
Caring and efficient.
No problems. Great visit.
He's clearly very knowledgeable in the field, and he took the time to answer all of my questions. He does lack certain social conventions such as making direct eye contact, however, this did not bother me so much since he was so sure in his medical assessment. I left his office with clearer skin and peace of mind. Also, filling prescriptions was a cinch as they were called in directly from his office and ready at the pharmacy by the time I got there.
He seemed very knowledgable, even outside of his area of expertise, was kind and helpful as well as quick.
Very friendly and helpful!
No complaints at all.
Professional and caring.
He chopped off a huge piece of my skin to do a biopsy. I have a huge scar as a result. It is true that the wait time is quick, but that is because he spends max 5 minutes with each person he sees. He is truly just trying to see as many people as possible in a short period of time.
All around professional.
On time, professional and concerned.
Competent and caring.
Professional and respectful.
Couldn't be better
Dr. Scheinfeld is curt in his analysis and acurate in his treatment. If you are a patient who knows what you need (I asked for his opinion on a cyst, a scar and a mole and I wanted to know my options) this is the doctor. He laid the options out (and possible outcomes), I chose what I wanted, he explained what I would be charged and executed the plan. I'm not sure I could ask for more.
Professional and caring.
I really enjoy Dr. Scheinfeld and I hate doctors. I have been seeing him for 2 problems - overall mild case of acne on the nose area minor but it bothers me. He gave me a mild treatment that is working great without the burning and peeling. I also have been seeing him for a spot on my forehead that I want lightened. He has been working with me to lightened it without causing scarring - it sits right in the middle of my forehead. I am even thinking of scheduling some laser hair removal treatment.
He's an excellent doctor. He was a bit abrupt but that may be because he had a lot of patients.
Couldn't imagine a more dedicated doctor.
Great visit. On time, efficient, never felt rushed.
Dr. Scheinfeld was able to see right away, diagnose my problem and fix me. I am very impressed by his vast medical knowledge. I would also definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
Never any problems.
He is incredible, a miracle worker and very patient.
Never a problem--
No complaints at all.
Friendly office, well informed doctor.
He was straight to the point, solid diagnosis, and cure, very helpful. One note for the needy though: If you have a million bs questions or if you need cuddling this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for a to the point, experienced doctor, solid diagnosis and cure, definitely Doctor Scheinfeld is for you.
This is my second time seeing Dr Scheinfeld and it was once again a great experience. There was very little wait time and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Dr. Schinefeld was spot on with his diagnosis of my perioral dermatitis and the antibiotic he gave me worked like a charm. He also gave me lots of free samples which was greatly appreciated as I am a recent college graduate with only an entry level salary. I came back for a follow up visit and it was clear he truly cared about my condition and was determined to help me. I would highly recommend Dr. Schinefeld!
There is never any waiting at Dr. Scheinfeld's. Besides being considerate of his patient's schedules, he is thorough and professional. His staff is friendly and professional as well.
My experience with this doctor was terrible. Neither the doctor nor the nurse introduced themselves, and he rushed through my consultation with him. He was very disinterested and brief, and did not care to talk through solutions for my problem. He dismissed my fear of needles and was hasty and careless with injections. The whole appointment lasted 5 minutes, then he then left the room and told me to schedule a follow up in two weeks, with no good bye. Horrible bedside manner. I will not go back.
As always, professional.
The best there is.
Everything was perfect!
I am compelled to write this because my visit yesterday was probably the best visit I've ever made to a doctor. Dr. Scheinfeld offered me a second opinion on my skin condition and less than 24 hours after heeding his advice and treatment plan i feel absolutely better. In my opinion, he is a great doctor and makes you feel at ease. When I asked him how to pronounce his last name, he just said "you can call me Noah". He was receptive to my questions, and was very direct in his answers. I felt absolutley at ease that this is a well qualified doctor who knows what he is talking about. The staff was really great too, they even faxed something over for me to my office so i was able to do some work during the brief wait. I don't wish my skin condition on anyone, its annoying and sometimes painful, but I would say that if you are in need of a dermatologist make your way over to see this doctor on 55th street.
he's a great doctor...really listens to you and creates a plan to help you together
Awful dermatologist and quite creepy to boot. I went in with dermatitis. They made me sign a form that said any procedure I would have to pay $250 for. Dr. Scheinfeld comes in, said I had dermatitis and should be put on meds and a cream, then poked me with a little instrument right away (like those sticks that they use to extract pimples with during a facial), and said "sign here." The form said that I had just gotten a "biopsy." I said, "That's a procedure? I didn't consent to that." He said, in the CREEPIEST way possible, "Well, then it's on me." And then he was all mad and left the room without explaining anything else. Literally the entire appointment lasted exactly 1 minute. DO NOT GO THERE.
This is a fast paced no nonsense operation. If you need cuddling, don't go here. If you're there to get checked, get a recommendation and get the hell out, it's the best place for you.
Quick and painless. Staff was very well Trained, courteous and responsive. I wish more physicians would run a practice like.
He needs another doctor working with him, because he rushed through the appt. it was literally the fastest appt. I've ever been to. anyone would prefer to see a doctor who actually wants to take their time with you. I spent 3 minutes with him, he checked me, diagnosed me, and prescribed me with treatments that didn't work. This was more than a year ago, I hope he has changed.
He was professional and friendly which you don't see alot of in doctors. He made my visit stress free. Thanks Doc!
Doctor: great. Receptionists: rude!
I just left Dr. Scheinfeld's office after my initial visit. I have to say that it was a wonderful experience all around. Dr. Scheinfeld is delightful. He explained my condition to me in a way I understood. At one point, he showed me an article he wrote about my exact condition--which really speaks to his competence and knowledge. The staff made my visit very comfortable. I dreadded making a Modnday morning appointment, for fear that I would be made to wait forever. Instead, I was seen quickly and yet not rushed. I highly recommend Dr. Scheinfeld!
I agree with some of the other reviews, he was very quick about 5mins but I am wondering if its because I have mild acne ,just need some clearing and he has seen alot of patients like me. maybe if i had a skin disorder he would spend more time listening. he was very pleasant though, knows his stuff and hopefully i can get good results.
I think that he was fine- his receptionists on the other hand are disgustingly rude.
No problems at all with him or his staff.
Dr Scheinfeld has correctly diagnosed me and rapidly cured me when other dermatologists (especially one who appears almost regularly in the front page of the NYT) misdiagnosed me and wasted my money on expensive but useless prescriptions and creams. With graduate degrees from Harvard, Yale and Columbia, it shouldn't be surprising that he's such a whiz. Indeed, your first experience with him will seem to go too fast; you'll wonder how he could ever succeed in such a flash, but that's just how quick his brilliant mind is. If you want to be cured of a skin ailment quickly, go see Dr. Scheinfeld; if you want to feel like you're worth being talked to at length, go see a shrink.
My first and only encounter with Dr. Scheinfeld was awful enough that I feel compelled to review. I would never recommend him to anyone. He barged in the office without introducing himself or knocking. He interrupted the discussion I was having with his assistant and never bothered to learn what I had already told her. He talked incessantly and self importantly, as if his voice would somehow cure my skin. He wasn't interested in my symptoms or my history. He didn't attempt a diagnosis, but even if he had, I can't imagine how it could have been accurate considering he interrupted me every time I tried to explain my situation.
Very unprofessional receptionists. Rude and stuck up. Doctor barely spends 5 minutes with you and seems to rush you out. I wish I read the online reviews before going to him. Now I have an unnecessary scar on my cheek.
A true professional.
The worst experience I've ever had at a doctor. Really seemed like he was on uppers. Wouldn't explain clearly what he thought the issue might be, and convinced me to let him do a biopsy without feeling comfortable with it. The procedure felt sloppy and I almost fainted. Then he offered me a limonata and, while I was still half-conscious, ranted about the UK health care system. Needless to say, I asked his office to send my biopsy results to another doctor.
Dr. Scheinfeld is probably one of the brightest people I have ever met. His knowledge about run of the mill, everyday dermatology as well as esoteric, 'you'll be lucky if you've seen one case like this in 50 years' is astounding. I have referred my husband (also a physician) as well as several of my children to him for routine, as well as more complicated issues. Also, when speaking to colleagues of Dr. Scheinfeld, all I hear is glowing comments about his medical knowledge and expertise. Without a doubt, I highly recommend Dr. Scheinfeld to anyone looking for a good dermatologist in NYC.
He cares about his patients.
Dr. Scheinfeld has a keen mind and a steady hand. He performed painless mole removal for me. I have seen Dr. Scheinfeld for a long time for various skin disorders and he has always been able to help me out.
Bedside manner was horrible. Felt like a science experiment rather than a patient and human being. Took little time to treat me, just started sticking needles in me and got upset when I couldn't handle the pain. Didn't do a thorough job either because what he "treated" came back days later. Offered me something free to "compensate" for my pain. What a joke. Never going back.
I felt very rushed and left uninformed of what procedures he was doing and why. I didn't feel like he cared about my specific case or needs and rather I was lumped into a category.
As always a good experience,very helpful and concerned.
long wait, great staff, sign away all your rights even if he makes a mistake, better DR's around,
Very profesional and answeres my questions.
I think someone called him wacky in a previous review. Spot on. Felt very comfortable with his knowledge and prognosis.
Dr. Scheinfeld was great. He cut right to the point and helped me with my issue. He was all about solving my problems right away! He explained to me what my benefits covered, what my options were, and wrote me 3 Rx's without any run-around.
Great doctor and great staff!
very professional explained everything in language I could understand, I already told one of my friends to go to him... he is aces
i had discoloration of the skin this guy frightened me and asked if i had AIDS...i hadn't even been sexually active, i dont know if the dr. implied this because i am black. i cannot recommend him for anything other than counseling.
He was level-headed and personable with just the right amount of wacky.
Really quick in and out. If he solved my problems, then he's a miracle worker, if he doesn't I'll say he's full of crap. Hoping for the former, of course. Nice guy too.
service is great, very punctual for the times i visited. Patient's doctor :)
Excellent, efficient and down to earth physician. Grateful to have found him!
my visit met all expectations. My questions were answered and the doctor and staff were all very pleasant and thorough.
Wonderful bedside manner and quick and accurate diagnosis. Thanks!
Wonderful first visit. Waited less than 3 minutes and found Dr.Scheinfeld to be a good listener and a doctor who was truly interested in researching various treatment options to treat my condition. I did not feel rushed and found his staff courteous and professional. I left feeling extremely satisfied with my visit.
Was not happy with this doctor. Rushes you out of his office as soon as possible. Cuts off your questions to save time. Very cursory and superficial examination. Overall very unsatisfied and unhappy with his poor level of surface. If you want to feel completely rushed and leave with unanswered questions, please come here so the doctor can see you for 10 min and kick you out ASAP
He was very quick and pleasant. Was able to determine my problem right away.
Very nice office. Staff was very professional and Dr. Scheinfeld took his time to evaluate and treat me. A very positve experience overall!
He was awesome. Proceed without hesitation.
Very attentive and good knowledge of his specialty. Almost no waiting time. Would highly reccommend this Doctor.
Professional, quick and thorough.
My visit was great i think so far he's on top of matter's of my concern's
He seems really stuck up and spends less than 5 minutes with you. Doesn't seem to even care. One of the worst doctors I have ever went to. A zombie can put on more of an effort.
he addressed my concern w/o brushing me off
I was very satisfied with Dr. Scheinfeld advice and his knowledge of my problem. Highly reccomended!
Only spent 5 minutes with me, mumbled a scientific name and I had to ask him what it was. No time for other questions. I felt expedited
Not the friendliest receptionists. The Dr. walked in while I wasn't even done changing. No knock. He looked at my skin for all of 10 seconds (no exagerration). Really? Would not recommend! Ever!
so quick and no nonsense!
Professional and efficient without leaving me feeling like I did not get the personal attention and consideration I needed. Have already reccomended him!
Really good experience. He's a very personable guy who takes the time to have a conversation but gets the job done quickly and thoroughly. I had to get an irregular mole removed-not the most pleasant of tasks but my experience was as pleasant and painless as could be under the circumstances. I highly recommend Dr. Scheinfeld.
Good doctor, a bit short but competent and fast
Great doctor, highly recommend - and high quality, responsive staff, including an exceptional physician's assistant!
Very pleased with first visit.
Dr. Scheinfeld is the best. He is very persistant and works with you to make sure that everything is okay. I took my fiance to Dr. scheinfeld and he love him too. I would recommend anyone to his office.
The office is very sanitary; The staff seems friendly & helpful. The Doctor was quick to see me, however, I went to him for one reason, which he dismissed all too soon for my liking, & focused on something totally different which I wasn't even worried about. He proceeded to pull out a needle to take a sample of what he thought was a potential problem without fully explaining it to me or asking me if it was ever looked at. After taking the sample, without fully getting dressed, he asked me to sign a piece of paper. After reading, it was a waiver in case I get a permanent scar or pains, etc... a document which I should have signed BEFORE he took the sample!
Was in and out in 35 minutes as a new patient. 15 minutes in the doctors office, but ALL 15 minutes were with him. Not some low-grade assistant taking my info, for him to then come in and read it for 10 seconds and misdiagnose. Plus, he was caring, listened, and truly felt like he knew what he was talking about. Great first experience.
Quick and efficient, knowledgeable and reassuring. Pleasant staff. No issues.
Dr. Scheinfeld is friendly and good at communication. I'm happy with my visit and wait to see if the medicine he prescribed is going to work.
Very friendly, and knowledgeable. He made me feel very comfortable asked the rite questions, honestly all and all the best doctor visit i have had yet. the office was very clean and up to date receptionists were friendly also. If you need a dermatologist don't hesitate see Dr. Scheinfeld u wont regret it.
I was seen ten minutes before my actual appointment. The office was very clean and looked high end. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The doctor was very thorough and made sure to answer all my questions. I will definitely recommend Dr. Scheinfeld to my friends.
