Dr Saini was the third doctor I consulted for a skin condition. I was growing so frustrated that the prior doctors could not identify the problem nor were they really taking the time to figure it out. Dr Saini knew immediately what was wrong, yet still took time to consider/investigate other causes and order a biopsy. I left the office so happy that I saw someone who actually gave me the answers I was looking for.

MD was nice and professional, but she asked if she could send in a " medical. Esthecian " - Really?! I don't appreciate being treated like a potential customer for beauty products when I go to the doctor. Avoid !

Dr. Saini is an excellent doctor, with great bedside manner. I always feel that she truly cares about her patients, and I'm confident with the decisions she makes on any issue that I have. She has also gone above and beyond the norm for me. I highly recommend her.

DOCTOR INTERACTION Dr. Saini was respectful, professional, and kind. Those 3 merits are the only reason I would visit this office again. She didn't try to talk over me, as some prideful medical professionals are sometimes apt to do, and listened carefully to what I said, and suggested possible treatments/procedures that were in line with other dermatologist have suggested. Other aspects were not so favorable: PRE-VISIT If you get a link from the office to do pre-office paper work, don't fill it out, and don't upload your Insurance Card. You'll be wasting your time. Their system in the actual office doesn't receive the info you fill out. VISIT The office administration was horrible. The receptionist was clueless as to why I had come for a visit (a cosmetic consultation) and said that it was their office policy to take the deductible upfront, which can be pricey (am not at liberty to write actual amount here on Zocdoc). When I asked what goes into calculating that cost, she refused to let me know. It was only after I had spoken to another nurse and their accountant, that they informed me they were mistaken, and that the consultation was--as it should be--free. By this time, at least 20 minutes had elapsed, and I was quite a bit frustrated. If the office can better train their receptionist, and improve ZocDoc - office communication, it'd be much better off.

I saw Dr. Aziz at the Fresh Meadows location (he is the one that goes to that location). I arrived 15 mins before my 315P appt, but I wasn't seen by the doctor until roughly 25 mins after my appt time. In fact, he didn't arrive to the office until around 315, despite having a 3P appt on his schedule, so keep that in mind if you're booking the first appts of the day. That being said, the actual appt was great. Dr. Aziz was completely professional and personable. He seemed genuine and took his time, including insuring there was nothing else I wanted to go over. Overall a great experience and I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking for dermatologists in the area.

I was asked to pay the full fare and promised they would refund me after the claim is settled with my insurance company. Never heard from them again. The insurance covered the visit and I had to call them and ask for the refund. At that point, the person I spoke with had no access to billing and did not know anything. I did not appreciate the game playing.

We met with her associate Dr. Aziz Chowdhury. Dr. Chowdhury diagnosed my daughter's symptom immediately. Explained in detail the cause, effect and solution. Wait time was less than 10 minutes. The office is clean and the receptionist was pleasant. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him.

Overall, my visit was quite satisfactory. I went to Dr. Saini to get her evaluation of a small eyelid lesion. She and her clinical staff assessed and treated it promptly, painlessly, and reassuringly. Was done and out the door in under 30 min. Dr. Saini and her team are friendly and efficient. They get the job done!

She did not seem very interested in hearing about the reasons for my visit. Everything was rushed and the only part of the visit where she seemed to be actually engaged on was at the end, when she tried to sell me unnecessary cosmetic procedures. Not recommended.

I was not able to meet with Dr. Saini, but I did have the pleasure of working with Dr. Amrit Kumar. I have been to many dermatologists and he has been. by far, the greatest. He took his time to actually talk to me about my lifestyle and diet, since it can contribute to my psoriasis and cystic acne. He described in great length of certain medications I am eligible for and overall was very kind towards me! I would love to continue to see him.

I arrived for my appointment ten minutes early to fill out paper work and remained in the waiting room for about half an hour although there were very few patients in the office. I was taken to the exam room and waited another half an hour to see the doctor for two minutes. The waiting room was fine but the exam room was extremely disorganized. Not a place I want to be treated by a doctor. Dr Saini answered a few of my questions but didnt really give me an exam and then tried to sell me on the in house products. Pretty disappointing visit, I can only imagine that her four star rating on here is not real.

Never again! First off, Dr. Saini seemed nice enough but my first interaction with her office staff should've been an indication of what was to come. I waited at the desk (with no one in front of me) for at least 10 minutes (after almost an hour wait) while the two receptionists behind the desk kept picking up the phone and putting people on hold and then laughing about it. I overheard them say "This one won't give up". I should really have just left right then. After my check up, which again was ok, I was told I could pick up my prescription at my local pharmacy. After picking up it was unclear which of the 3 ointments were to be used where. So I called the office to get clarification. After 3 days of trying I finally got someone on who wasn't sure either. They said they'd get back to me. They didn't. I then finally go through again 2 days later and someone else gave me direction but was telling me to put the ointments in places I didn't even have checked out. I had to insist extremely aggressively that the Dr. call me back—which she did before the end of that day and I thought to myself "ok, I was supposed to go back for a follow up, but I'm not dealing with this office ever again". NO such luck. Three months later I get ANOTHER bill from the office. Another 3 days of trying to get through!! NEVER again... stay away!!
