The wait time was about 40 minutes. Doctor Esther was very knowledgeable and helpful. She prescribed various medications to help with my skin issues. The office was pleasant, not the most spacious but nice. Will definitely go back for follow ups.

I really liked this guy, but there was a huge problem with his receptionist. I booked my zoo doc appointment for 9 in the morning because I had to prior engagements at around 11:30, so I thought this would be plentyof time. I was the first one in the office and waited for quite a bit of time. Every few minutes, someone else would come in and wait for the doctor until the room was completely full, and no one was getting seen after an hour of waiting. I asked the receptionist nicely when I would be seen because it was an hour. She told me the doctor doesn't get in until 10:30. I asked her why she would book people at 9 if the doctor comes in at 10:30, why make me come in so early to wait an hour and a half. She gave me an attitude and said the doctors office doesn't take appointment times, its first come first serve. If I knew this I wouldn't have booked. I live a 5 minute walk away from the office, I could have left and gotten some food or something in the mean time. She told me if I didn't like it, I could leave. I decided to stick it out for a few more minutes and as soon as I got up to leave, the doctor walked in. Then the receptionist called someone that wasn't me even though I was the first one signed in and the first one in the room. I wasn't seen until 11. The doctor was really cool though! Really nice and answered a lot of questions I had. He really worked with me because my health insurance doesn't cover much of the creams I needed, but he found something that was covered. Really nice guy, just need to sack the receptionist.

The office was small, crowded, and not clean. The office triple books patients and even with a Zoc Doc confirmation email, the front desk staff questions if you actually had an appt. And yes they triple book I shared the sametime slot as the gentleman to the left of me and the child to the right of me. The actual visit lasted 5 minutes and wasn't very thorough.

No issues with the staff or Dr. Fried. He was quick, answered my questions, and even addressed some acne I was not there to address. The office is small and can get crowded in the waiting area. The wait was long,over an hour, but it was crowded that day. Everyone was friendly. The front desk area can be a little loud, but not intentionally, as some people talk louder than others. I did have to bring up that I have a co-pay. But that's not major. I think this is a good dermatologist office. They are actually a practice, so there are other locations as well. I would visit this office again & recommend it to others. Also I like that there is parking.

The office was not located where it is stated. It is on another block. The office staff said not to make an appointment on ZocDoc and was very unhelpful. I will not return.

He seems pretty awesome! I called the office in regards to my appointment, however, if you book online on Zocdoc, be sure to call them to confirm. They were not aware I was on the schedule till I called to letthem know I was running a few minutes late. However, I was still seen less than an hour which is awesome. I had probably a 30 minute wait or so. Good doctor, humorous, and got my prescription quick! Can't wait to see the results! :-)

The doctor was great. He was very kind and informative. he listened to me and even prescribed two different types of acne medicine just in case my insurance doesn't cover one of them. The receptionist was a little rude and unprofessionaland I didn't like the fact that they only take cash and checks.....NO CARDS. All in all the doctor was great and I would go back to him.
