Dr. Saini was pleasant, informative and easy yo talk to. I would recommend her to anyone. About a 30 minute wait, not horrible. Office staff were friendly and welcoming. Facility was clean and bright. I will be seeing her for all my dermotology needs from now on.

My appointment was scheduled for 9am which was confirmed by voicemail and over the phone, however when I arrived at the office, it appeared that several other patients were also scheduled at 9am. I'm assuming some of them were for procedures and might not have been scheduled to see the doctor, but I still ended up waiting an hour and 15 min before being seen. Besides the long wait, I had a good experience with the clinicians. The support staff seemed a bit unprofessional (late to open up the office, rude to one another). I'll wait to see how the treatment goes in a few weeks.

The person who took care of me was amazing! However the organization and professionalism of the business can improve. When I arrived the door was locked and the lights were off and the several paper signs in the door were really confusing for a first time visit. Called the 2 listed phone numbers and no one picked up either. Waited outside the office for 30 min before I even figured out how to get in.

Long wait time each time I've had an appointment; office has uncomfortable chairs and no magazines; would prefer to watch CNN over endless infomercials about cosmetic procedures. When I was having a procedure, assistant called my name out in waiting room and said "You need another procedure" - in front of the other patients; then she did it again when I was complete! At the last visit, MD said she would return to exam room for post procedure follow up but I sat there for 20 minutes and then was told that my visit was over - no follow up on procedure. Not sure I will return.

doctor spend more time offering botox and other cosmetic procedures than really examining my body. I clearly said I don't want to use any acid in the summer and she prescribed me acid. she's nice, but because she has a cosmetic company inside her office I think she has another objective

Doctor always listens and answers any questions. She is not judgemental and always is willing to consider any type of treatment.

You will ALWAYS wait at least 30 minutes to see the doctor. Also, she will only write a RX for a 30-day supply so if you need a maintenance medication you will be in the office every month for a follow up appointment. I get the feeling she wants to keep me from healing so she doesn't lose a steady income stream. This is the kind of doctor that also pushes other in-house services and products. I called to request a refill before I left for a trip but was denied despite the fact that I had just been in the office a few weeks before. I was on hold for over 15 minutes when I called (the usual) and the RX was never called in nor did I receive a follow up call. Now I have to wait 2 more weeks because there are no late appointments available. To add insult to injury, during my last visit a guy randomly walked into the exam room while I was waiting and looked at my face and started talking about my condition. Then he introduces himself as an intern. It was an intrusion of my privacy. The last thing I want at the doctor's office is an audience. Skip this doc and find someone else.

Waited more than an hour to see the doctor, who spent less than 7 minutes talking to me, and charged an excessive fee for a 'specialist visit' for nothing more than a prescription, which I probably could/should have gotten at my local pharmacy. She did not seem interested or provide any additional information regarding the skin condition I went to see her for, and the appointment left me very frustrated.

I like Dr. Saini and i've been here twice. Waited 30 minutes the first time and now 40 minutes this time even with the appointments. Unfortunately, that is a dealbreaker for me since i usually plan my own schedule around these appointments, therefore, it brings down my overall experience. They did apologize but she also looked at me blankly when she explained that she has other procedures that took longer than expected...(almost seemed like a half apology?). Also, she then tried to ask me to stay longer so their other staff member can sell me their other services (sort of like how new gyms try to make you stay after your first workout with them). Needless to say, i said i had to REALLY go.

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 !

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.
