The front desk staff was efficient in checking me in. A 'welcome to Dermagroup' smile/manner as shown by other staff I interacted with was missing. Dr. Torres was very personable, explained the procedure, answered my questions satisfactorily & did a splendid job. Together with the office's new design, the entire experience was a joy.

Dr. Torres was very thorough and thoughtful in answering my questions during a recent cosmetic consultation for my horizontal forehead lines. He was honest and knowledgeable about specific products on the market right now, which I appreciated. I did have to wait, but only for a few minutes past my appointment time, and it was not a big deal at all. I have also seen Raquel, the P.A. in his practice, for yearly skin screenings, and she is very nice. Convenient Union Square location, lovely office space. Recommended.

I came in with a growth on my back and left without it. Dr. Torres took the necessary precautions to make sure that this growth was nothing but benign, and told me how to take care of it. I am very pleased with the results and how I was taken care of. Highly recommend him.

The only delay was that the office didn't have the biopsy from my primary care dermatologist when I arrived. However, that didn't take too long to get faxed over. I didn't have to wait long at all for Dr. Torres. During Mohs surgery, the doctor takes tissue until the skin is clean. Each step, they examine the skin under a microscope before they go further to the next step. But the waiting time in between was maybe 20 minutes – not that long. I'd been told I'd be there up to 3 hours. But I was there less than 90 minutes – much less than expected. The procedure was also relatively pain-free. Dr. Torres is friendly and explained the steps in an easy-to-understand manner. The waiting time was minimal, and I was completely satisfied.
