Verified Patient Reviews
Loved this office! They were efficient and kind, and didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need. They were also able to call and give me my results, eliminating the need to return back to the office for a follow up, which was great. Definitely recommend.
SO nice and comforting! fast wait! everyone in the office was so nice!
I waited but that was primarily because I was 45 minutes early for my appointment. I love this office.
Very thorough, kind, and considerate. Went in for a variety of reasons with out-of-network coverage and Dr. Mikkilineni listened to the treatments I was interested in and accommodated as best she could regarding treatment and payment plans.
Well - let me start off by saying the young receptionist was very friendly and professional. I was disappointed that I got there a few minutes early and had to wait almost 30minutes!! I then waited 5-10 additional minutes for my dermatologist. Finally she arrives and I immediately felt rushed. She literally prescribed me a face cream within the first minute - didn't bother asking me questions or history. I was confused!? Like, as I kept telling her my concerns she kept rushing me with her answers and prescriptions. My entire time with her was 5 minutes!!!! What a waste!! I would've preferred a thorough appt. Make sense as to why I'm having these issues etc. I unfortunately have to go back one more time but definitely won't be recommending her or returning after that. It's not always about being efficient with YOUR time -practice being effective!! Let me add there were no other patient in the waiting area, so why rush my appt???
I was seen within 5 minutes or so of my appointment time, and once in the room the doctor was very quick to arrive. She spoke with me briefly about if I had any specific concerns, then continued to perform the exam. Dr. Mikkilineni was very courteous and thorough in informing me about what to expect, as well as addressing my concerns.
Staff was courteous and Dr. Mikkilieni was very attentive and explained the procedure and answered any questions I had. Had a 35 min wait for the first appt of the day- can't imagine the rest of the day goes smoothly with a backlog like that.
Office was clean, staff professional and efficient. Dr. Mikkilineni was very friendly and personable. She attended to every concern I had and even offered options for minor conditions I hadn't considered before. Highly recommended!
Really great doctor - highly recommended!
I enjoyed my first visit with Dr. M, she had a wonderful female assistant in the room as well and before I knew it, my prescription was forwarded to the Walgreen's closest to my home. An extra plus is her convienient location in the Union Square area. A+
Dr Mikkilineni took the time to address my condition and all questions I had. I'm really pleased with her patient and professional manner. I would definitely recommend her
Dr.Mikklineni is wonderful. It was my first visit. She was very thorough with my skin exam and answered any questions I had. She also had good recommendations for different types of sunscreen for my kids.
Great personality and very thorough.
Visit took 5 minutes. Basically just asked me what prescription I wanted for acne instead of trying to look at my face and figure out what I needed. Then suggested cosmetic, instead of medical, treatments.
The doctor was very pleasant and efficient. She saw a few suspicious spots and did two biopsies right away. I appreciated that since waiting for another appointment would have been much more stressful.
Very nice and efficient appointment
Dr. Mikkileni and her staff were excellent!
I think she is a skilled professional and I would recommend her to anyone that needs a good dermatologist
I had a really pleasant visit. It was first ever skin screening and Dr. Mikkilineni was very warm and friendly and very knowledgeable. I went in early in the morning and was seen right away. I will definitely be going back.
She was helpful and great! Just was turned off by the wait time.
Dr. Mikkilineni was very nice, easy to talk to, patient, and willing to address any questions I had. The office is nice, the staff is friendly, and I left feeling well cared for. Also, they have office hours on Saturdays which makes scheduling less of a challenge around work.
Very professional and courteous.
Excellent Doctor. Great Results and Attentive
Excellent, she was extremely knowledgable and explained all the options and possibilities. And i was totally finished in 30 minutes, not bad for a first appointment. Absolutely LOVE all of the online paperwork/scheduling/communication capabilities.
She seems very knowledgeable and remembers me even though I've seen her less than a handful of times. Really concerned with solving my problems with acne, as well as Melasma, and very thorough when doing skin checks.
I went to see Dr. Mikkilineni for a dark spot that was concerning me. She was nice and friendly, she didnt keep me waiting long which i appreciated. She answered all my questions. However, from the moment she walked in to the exam room she seemed to be in a rush to get the appointment over which made me uncomfortable. she took less than 2 seconds to look at the spot and rushed into her diagnosis and treatment, didnt ask me about the history of the spot or how it felt or any of the questions any doctor needs to ask. I have no doubts in her capabilities but I believe that she needs to learn to give her patients time and hear them out and gain their trust.
Very professional with a good bedside manner. Checked me over and didn't push any additional services on me (which I appreciated it).
She was very friendly and informative, calmed my worries right away. Quick visit.
Highly competent in the field. One of the best doctors I've seen in general.
If only all doctors were like her! She was congenial, informative, and positive. She's the total opposite of a bully, which is what most doctors seem to be.
Left unsatisfied. Out of the three recommended products that were handed to me on a Post-It, one was a line that was discontinued in 2012, all three were spelled incorrectly so it took forever to find, and two were not a specific product, but a full line so I don't know which specific product was recommended. I was also told to use a product with a specific ingredient in it which none of the written down suggestions have in them. I have rosacea and was not offered a prescription treatment as my father has. No samples. Rushed.
My visit was very quick which is what I was looking for since I knew the diagnosis and just needed a new prescription.
Excellent. She is very nice, listens to your concerns and does not rush you at all. I am looking forward to trying her recommendations.
The doctor was kind and efficient and the nurse and receptionist were both sweet and helpful! Co-pay was pretty expensive since they're considered a specialist, but otherwise it was a good visit.
She's a nice person but the actual time she was in the room with me was so quick, less than 3 minutes?!?
Dr Mikkilineni was fantastic. She was very thorough and listened to my concerns; I felt very comfortable. Her staff is also wonderful. I have been looking for a dermatologist that I actually want to return to for years and have finally found a good fit with Dr. Mikkilineni.
Dr. Mikkilineni saw me for less than five minutes. She came in, looked at my face, and prescribed 3 things without asking me any questions. I had to interrupt her to explain my condition and ask questions for clarification.
Professional, efficient, courteous.
Professional, courteous, efficient.
The staff was professional and courteous. The wait time was within 5-10 minutes of completing my forms. The doctor was attentive and patient in explaining and answering my questions. Overall, I felt comfortable and confident I was receiving the quality of service I had hoped for. I have a feeling my experience will the same during my subsequent visits
A+, seamless & frictionless
I was absolutely floored by the efficiency of Dr Mikkilineni's support staff. I was in and out in less than 45 mins after my arrival. After the doc assessed my problem, my prescriptions were called into my local pharmacy which saved me a trip to drop off scripts. The whole visit left me very pleased!
She was thorough and pleasant.
My appointment with her was fine, but she when she wrote my prescriptions she put the wrong day and wrong year, so I was unable to fill them. I didn't realize until I was at the pharmacy and by that time I had wasted a lot of time. This was my first visit with her and this lack of attention to detail makes me hesitant about continuing with her.
Dr. Radha Mikkilineni was very thorough and took her time with me. I had a lot of questions and she didn't rush me at all. I would definitely recommend her! Her assistant and receptionists were just as nice.
VERY PROFESSIONAL, VERY NICE. FELT COMFORTABLE. WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND HER.
Very professional as well as pleasant. Office staff are friendly and efficient. Visited on a Saturday which was nice as the office was not hectic. Appointment was changed from Thursday to Saturday.
Delightful and very helpful!!
Very friendly and helpful.
Dr. Mikkilineni is very personable and professional. The office staff were also friendly and capable.
I was very happy with the visit. Dr. Mikkilineni was very informative about the different options for me and then explained the treatments plan in detail. She also informed me about alternative methods. I can not comment on the results of the treatment yet.
Dr. Mikkilineni was very thorough and had a great bedside manner. I recommend this doctor.
She was great. She patiently listened to all I had to say and had good advice.
It was a short visit. She is very nice, I liked her. The wait time was a bit over 1/2 hour, not sure if that is normal.
My initial visit was very pleasant and the doctor was very nice and took some time to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. Would definitely see her again.
Dr. Mikkilineni is friendly, attentive, and quick, yet thorough. She's easy to talk to and open to answering any questions you may have. The receptionists at the office are sweet, but the appointment wait time can be improved, as well as her "medical assistant." She was standoffish, not professional, and rude.
Dr. Mikkilineni is super-smart, experienced, trustworthy, and personable. Highly recommended.
She was very nice, and thorough. I went due to bug bites.
She was friendly, but also very efficient.
Very highly recommended!
Great derm visit - would highly recommend. Wait time was typical and during the appointment, all of my concerns were addressed in a timely and professional manner.
I really appreciated Dr. Mikkilineni's attention to detail and professionalism and taking time to discuss the best treatment options for my skin issues.
Quick and efficient.
Dr. Mikkilineni seems like a nice doctor (personable, not intimidating). However, I barely had much time with her - five minutes tops. She didn't even sit down to talk. She leaned against the wall next to me and hunched down a little bit to talk to me. It gave me the feeling that she was in a hurry and did not want me to take too much of her time. I am not sure how acne consults normally work because this is my first dermatology visit. But a 3 second glance at my problem areas (with makeup on) didn't seem like a full acne consult. In the end, I paid the copay to get a prescription for a gel I was interested in trying. Perhaps if I did not disclose my interest in the gel until the end of the consult, there would be more of an assessment instead of keeping me company until the prescription was filled.
She was very patient and answered all my questions. I recommend her.
Everyone working there are very professional and nice. The doctor and her assistant are attentive. I felt my concerns were heard, although i went there for my first skin screening. I feel comfortable going back to see her in the future.
Great and caring doctor, but referred me to a Dr. Fong to remove a mole; he was rushed, rude, and saw me as little as ten minutes before scheduling another appointment. No wonder medical insurance prices are out of control.
She was prompt, no-nonsense, competent. Basically the perfect NYC doctor.
i am always pleased after my visits with Dr Mikkilineni! great practice, great office, great doctor. though the prices are on the high side -- this is Park Ave in NYC, after all -- i highly recommend them to friends and family.
It was short and bereft of explanations but maybe my issues were (thankfully) rather mundane.
I will definitely go back. Thought she was thorough but straight to the point. I did have to wait at least 25 minutes to be seen though.
I walked in as a new patient to see Dr. Mikkilineni and was greeted by a very welcoming staff into a clean office. Dr. Mikkilineni's assistant was very sweet! Dr. Mikkilineni herself was very kind, professional, invested in my questions, and was very thorough in her evaluation as I was in for a dermatological consult. Although the treatment session was quick, I left feeling well taken care of with all of my questions answered. I highly recommend Dr. Mikkilineni!
Very friendly and professional
Warm, personable, professional. Took her time to explain things.
everyone in the office was so nice and made me feel very comfortable. the patient coordinator, Jennifer, is personable and knowledgeable. the Dr was wonderful and it really felt like she was listening to my concerns. i'm definitely coming back for future needs.
She was really nice and professional. I went in for just an annual screening and she was extremely thorough and explanatory
Very insightful and helpful. Calmed all worries and addressed all issues. Highly recommend!
Very professional . Nice friendly staff.
Everybody in her office is very professional and pleasant....especially her assistant who's just sweet. Dr. Radha is wonderful.
Great visit, will definitely be returning to this Dr.
She was very quick and professional. Some of her word choices were a little off-putting "shave it off" for example vs "remove", but not the end of the world, I'm just sensitive. her nurse was really nice too. very comfortable office
Very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr Mikkilineni listened to my questions, provided thorough answers, and helped find the best solution for me. At no point did the appointment feel rushed. Great experience.
She was great
She definitely made me feel comfortable. I made another appt. to see her again. Definitely recommend.
She was very rushed and did no history at all. I wouldn't go back.
Staff is super friendly, and Dr. Mikkilineni is great. The wait was around 25 minutes but that's hard to avoid in NYC doctor's offices. I will definitely be going back.
She was good. I just don't like their office paperwork policy.
Very professional, very personable and answered all questions I had. I would definitely recommend Dr. Mikkilineni.
Dr. Mikkilinenni was cordial, efficient, and very professional in treating the problems that were bothering me. I was concerned that the office was going to recommend some other tests and procedures, but that did not happen. Thank you, Dr. M.
She is wonderful. I couldn't recommend anyone more. I had a lovely visit to the office and everyone who worked there was extremely kind, friendly and professional.
I thought she was very professional and kind. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great dermatologist!
Totally positive experience!!!!
I came because of hair loss. Both Dr. Mikkilineni and the medical assistant were extremely welcoming and thoroughly answered my LOAD of questions that I came with. She was very informative, and ran through different options that we could try. If there was anything I was uncomfortable trying, she presented an alternative that I did feel comfortable trying. Everything was absolutely explained to me in detail. I highly recommend.
Excellent, very thorough, good bedside manner, explained what was necessary as next steps very well. Talked upfront about pricing for some cosmetic procedures.
Wonderful!!! I've seen a lot of dermatologists and it seemed like I pretty much got the same treatment and information each time. She took a totally different approach and it has made such a difference. The results so far have been more than I could have hoped for. I wish I had made the appointment years ago.
Very quick. In and out. Great location!
She was great in the fact that she gave me samples so I didn't need to pick up a prescription but she only walked in looked at the area and walked right out. Her PA gave me the samples and she didn't even know what it was...neither did I.
She was great. She listened to my concerns and gave good advice :)
She was quick and knowledgable!!
Great bedside manner, was friendly and thorough
Very professional and efficient. Friendly bedside manner. Highly recommend.
Very quick and professional, which helped minimize the awkwardness.
This office was amazing! The staff was very efficient and I was seen on-time. The doctor promptly came in and addressed every question that I had. She was extremely professional, thorough and thoughtful when explaining treatments. I would definitely recommend going to see Dr. Mikkilineni!
Dr. Mikkilineli is fabulous! Kind, thoughtful, great care. I would highly recommend.
She's quick and her prescription helped clear my issue.
Very professional and nice. Gave me options. I will go back!
Dr. M is very nice and generally more knowledgeable than most Dermatologists I have seen. She is quick at identifying simple skin issues and dealing with them.
Answered all my questions and concerns. Gave a solid treatment plan of care. Office nice setting and wait time less than 10minutes of original appointment. Will be following up.
Dr. Mikkilineni was professional, friendly, and extremely helpful. She was very informative and didn't talk down to me at all. I have a skin condition that often distracts other dermatologists from whatever I happen to have come in for that day, but she was very focused on what I needed to talk with her about. Excellent experience!
i had no clue who she was, i was just searching online for someone close to my work, that took my insurance, and had decent reviews on here. I would definitely recommend her. She was prompt, caring and I had a LOT of questions, all answered, and every procedure was done with my constant comfort in mind, had a few skin tags and other skin things removed and felt no pain. Now the appointment was just last night, so maybe ill have some adverse reactions later on down the road, but as far as i can tel right now, it was a great experience
It was an awesome experience. The receptionists were friendly and helpful. The assistant was friendly and helpful. Dr. Mikkilineni saw me right away and she, of course, was friendly and helpful. Great bedside manner and very efficient. I wish all appointments were this smooth.
Thoughtful and unrushed attention.
Dr. Mikkilineni was great - quick but thorough, practical, and patient.
She didn't answer my immediate questions nor were the assistants introduced. Overall, uncomfortable experience.
She was very nice and genuinely concerned for my well being.
Office staff extremely nice, Didn't wait long at all. Doctor was very professional and had a great bedside manner.
Dr. Mikkilineni was so professional and friendly. I will definitely be going to her again, and recommending her to my friends!
I had a really great experience. I was seen immediately and the consultation was quick but thorough. She didn't push expensive products or treatments on me, and gave me a holistic perspective on my skin care regimen that was both preventative and proactive. She is very kind and patiently listened to and addressed all my concerns. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Dr. Mikkilineni was professional and made me feel comfortable. Not only was she accommodating, but she also has great patient communication skills.
Dr. Mikkilineni is fantastic. I went to see her when I had a sudden case of severe hives that lasted for over a year. I had seen over 5 other doctors, allergists, and dermatologists, and none of them had even done chemical allergy testing on me! One of the doctors I had previously seen actually told me that I had to get acupuncture and that was the only way to get rid of the hives. Dr. M did extensive allergy testing on me and we figured out that the hives were caused by an allergy to cocamidopropyl betaine, a foaming agent in soaps. The office is super clean, she's very professional, and the receptionists are mostly helpful.
She is fantastic!
Dr. Mikkilineni was professional, thorough and kind. I highly recommend her.
The doctor was very personable and helpful.
Dr. Mikkilineni is fantastic. Very knowledgeable, helpful and kind. The office was very professional. I will be going to her for any more of my dermatological needs!
