Dr. Rupani was great and I would recommend her to anybody. My only complaint was that in addition to a mole check, I wanted to express some concerns I have about rashes/excema, and the nurse told me I had to makea separate appointment about that. I've seen other dermatologists who were happy to cover everything in one visit. I'm not sure if this is normal or just dictated by insurance. Otherwise, great doctor!

Dr. Rupani and her p.a. couldn't have been nicer or more medically more knowledgeable. However, the office staff do not know the procedure for ordering medications from Canada. This is particularly irksome because dermatologic medicationsin the U. S. are most often prohibitively expensive. I have tried numerous times to make the office understand that the Canadian pharmacy requires an e-script with the doctor's electronic signature, or a faxed copy of a hard-copy prescription (old style). For some reason they find this impossible to effect; I cannot be the only person in NYC/NYS who orders medications from Canada. This is all perfectly legal. I've decided to wait until I see my PCP in the fall and will ask her to send the scripts to Canada, as she seems more savvy. Hopefully I have enough meds to tide me over in the meantime. Very annoying.

I liked Dr. Rupani but I hate the fact that every time I go to Beth Israel to see a new doctor I have to fill out a thick clipboard full of exactly the same forms I filled out for thelast doctor. It's 2017. Haven't these people heard of computers?

Dr. Rupani was friendly and professional. She performed a full-body mole check, but was unwilling to discuss my other concerns--acne, fine lines, and sunspots. Instead, she and her assistant pushed heavily for me to come back for a second visit,which would be available for a specific fee. That fee would then be rolled into my future treatments. I found the visit to be the very bare minimum, and a disappointing experience. I will not return.

I know I am writing this review late but it is because of what has transpired since my annual exam in Feb 2017 with Dr. Rupani. I would not under any circumstances re-visit or suggest anyone treats with Dr. Rupani. Ias a new patient came to her (yes she had great reviews) for a preventative dermatology screening (covered by most insurance plans, mine included) but was in-turn billed as a 'new outpatient' leaving me with an expensive bill. After multiple attempts in clearing this up with her / her office to properly code and bill my insurance company as an annual wellness exam (I also spoke with Tanya in her office confirming it would be cleared up where Tanya mentioned it happened before to another patient), 5 months later was contacted by a collections agency last month. Shame on her, her office and Mt. Sinai. Naturally no returned calls from Dr. Rupani or her office. I mention this to hopefully prevent this happening to other new or existing patients. Perfect example of a doctor over billing for routine care.

provided information I was never provided in all my visits with a previous and long time visited dermatologist on conditions I have had for years. Removed a growth I had through several earlier visits with another dermatologist and checkeda mole for problems. Advised me of an over the counter med readily available to handle itching and irritation which previously I had been provided a prescription for an expensive ointment. I am very happy with my visit. Nursing staff is very professional.
