Efficient, professional, knowledgeable
Dr. Milburn is great! He listens to all of your concerns and is very honest!
I have been three times. During my last visit, the office was not busy at all and I was seen right away. I was finished 15 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. I had a good experience during each of my three visits. I certainly recommend Dr. Milburn.
He actually said to me "i can't change your DNA"...so very unsuccessful.
Very kind staff and very efficient treatment! Dr. Milburn must foster this in his staff.
Dr. Milburn is professional and no-nonsense. I was in for a regular screening and was seen within 10 minutes of arriving. He was thorough, informative and efficient.
Excelent profesional !
I like that Dr. Millburn has a solo practice, so you will always see him and not an associate. He is very experienced, knowledgeable and professional. Also, his receptionist and nurse are exceptionally caring and efficient. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Milburn is knowledgable and thorough. His staff are pleasant and efficient. I enjoyed my visit.
Very knowledgeable. Thorough. Great bedside manner. Would recommend.
Professional and informative! Patiently walked me through his thoughts on my questions. Certainly a sign of a good doc!
Dr. Millburn and his staff were great. The receptionist was a pleasure to deal with. Dr. Millburn adequately addressed my concerns, albeit giving off a slight feeling of being rushed. I was seen approximately 15 minutes after the appointment time.
My visit was great. Cant wait to see results of my eczema. Road to recovery.
Peter Milburn is the best dermatologist I have seen. I have seen multiple derms for my skin problems for years and none have been able to resolve. He diagnosed my skin condition and had my skin clear in about a week. He really does care about his patients!
Dr Milburn is a non-nonsense and well versed doctor. I highly recommend him!
Excellent doctor he helped me so much with my skin condition.
Dr. Milburn is extremely thorough, and takes my annual skin cancer scan very seriously--documenting everything and watching for problem areas. After seeing him for about 10 years, he just recently recognized and removed a pre-cancerous mole very early on. I should also menrion that his staff is extrmely helpful with matters of scheduling and insurance.
Dr Milbern is smart, professional, and efficient.
Dr. Milburn was great. Patient, understanding, and explained everything that he was doing/seeing.
Front office lady is great and very welcoming. I am sure Dr.Milburn is very knowledgeable about his practice, but I left this appointment wanting to cry. I was conflicted about treatment and just don't think Dr.Milburn was very understanding to my condition. I may return, but honestly, this interaction left me feeling like he just can't be very relatable to his patients.
Dr Milburn and the office people are extremely nice. I highly recommend this Dermatologist.
The office staff was friendly and efficient in getting me in to see the Dr. He was straightforward, informative, and pleasant. Best of all, he took care of my issue with a minor procedure right away with no fuss no muss. His medical assistant was also good; she gave me easy to follow instructions for the next few days.
Dr. Millburn was great, I would highly recommend visiting his office to my friends & family.
Dr. Milburn is a WONDERFUL, very experienced and calm with Patients like myself, Doctor!!! I am 66yrs. and have been to Dermatologists since 21yr.-the BEST Dermatologist in my 45 years of going to this Medical specialty. I have had melanoma and other skin cancer issues from living in sunny locations. I feel soooooo happy that ZocDoc has Dr. Milburn on their site-Can't THANK YOU enough.
Consistent great service.
I've been a patient of the Dr for well over 20 years and I find him very professional, knowledgeable and a good listener. I recommend him to anyone who needs dermatological care.
The receptionist was warm and accommodating. Dr. Milburn is seasoned and knowledgeable... I will definitely be back!
Just visited Dr Milburn for s skin screening. He was extremely prompt, knowledgeable and had a terrific bedside manner. I like the fact that he is not a cosmetic dermatologist. Seems there a few of these doctors left. He has excellent experience I'm very happy I found him. Would highly recommend Dr Milburn for real skin issues, and I will certainly see him again.
Doctor was great. He listened to all my issues patiently. Highly recommended.
Knows his stuff - practicing since 1970s. Felt I was in good hands.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Milburn for a few years now and he and his staff are a pleasure to work with. The wait time could use some improvement, but everything else is A+ in my book.
Dr. Millburn asked all of the right questions to get a full picture of my medical history. He was thorough and took great care to understand and address my concerns. I would definitely recommend seeing him if you are looking for someone who cares and knows what they're doing.
Excellent doctor. Very calm and professional. Took the time to talk to me and understand my issues. Highly recommended.
Office seemed a bit dated, but the staff was very friendly, and my wait time was very reasonable (5-10 minutes). Dr. Milburn was patient, and listened to everything I had to say. He treated me for both of my issues, and sent me on my way. Overall very satisfied with my visit, would recommend.
Dr milburn' office was a breath of fresh air. His front desk person was cordial and upbeat, his office was immaculate. He saw me within minutes of arriving and thoroughly examined me. He asked plenty of questions and I did not feel rushed. Lovely doctor with a wonderful bedside manner who I will follow up with in a month.
To be fair, I was 30mins late
No wait time. Thorough.
Extremely thorough and informative
Courteous and professional staff, and Dr. Milburn took good care of me. Visit with confidence.

Stop worrying and make an appointment
Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, efficient, thoughtful and highly skilled. A real gentleman. Reminded me of how doctors used to be when I was a kid. Very compassionate and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Milburn. I won't be looking for another dermatologist now that I've found him.
Dr. Milburn was exactly the kind of doctor I was looking for. He had great bedside manner and I feel confident he will help clear up my issues. Besides the 30min wait time (which I understood because he was the only doctor), i will definitely go back to see him.
Dr. Milburn is one of the best doctors I have seen in Manhattan. Excellent bedside manner and being very thorough make him my go-to dermo. I have never felt rushed while there and always left feeling informed with all questions answered. Only negative would be the the wait time...it always seems to be at least half hour or more.
Dr Millburn seems like a true professional. I highly recommend him.
Very impressive. My appointment was at 2:10 pm and I was seeing Doctor exactly at 2:10 pm, no waiting. This was especially important because it was my lunch break. Doctor was very knowledgeable and opened. He treated me like Family! Highly recommend!
Very professional, helpful and caring
He prescribed me the priciest medications. I spent hundreds on a cream that didn't work and then when I went back he prescribed another one that was more than double the first. (and that is with the coupon he gave me and my insurance!) The pharmacist told me that doctors often get kick backs from the drug companies for doing this and that there are cheaper alternatives but I didn't have a prescription that would get me one. I refused to pay the so went to get a second opinion at another dermatologist. She gave me something that worked and was around the same price as a chipotle burrito.
I liked Dr. Millburn. The wait time was a bit long, but otherwise, he was very attentive, took time to explain things, and didn't rush.
Great dermatologist, lots of help!
Everything was great except for the wait time. Why do doctors schedule appointments and then make you wait for 25 minutes once you get there?
On my second visit to Dr Milburn, I mistakenly wrote the time of the appointment for 10 am in my calendar. When I arrived and was informed that my appointment was at 2:40, I was initially disappointed, but they squeezed me in 5 minutes later! The front desk team and the nurses were incredibly friendly. This is so rare! Dr. Milburn is very experienced and thoughtful. I feel very confident that he is doing a good job. He also recommended a new primary care doctor for me.
Dr. Milburn quickly and accurately diagnosed the rash around my left eye as a rosacea like condition. He prescribed a topical cream that, within a few days, began controlling the condition. Several weeks later, the rash is nearly completely gone.
It went well.
Dr. Milburn is courteous and knowledgeable. I went in for an examination, and he was excellent in explaining everything. Being in the dark is the worst when it comes to medical procedures, and I really appreciated that Dr. Milburn let me know what he was doing and why he was doing it. Highly recommended!
The office was highly competent and nice to deal with. The doctor was attentive, listened, did not rush through the appointment. He was helpful with my problem. When I asked if his office could fax my prescription to the pharmacy, he responded immediately by picking up the phone and calling them himself. Overall, a nice, professional and effective visit.
Went for a routine checkup. Doctor was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable.
Thorough and kind. Put me at ease immediately.
