The appointment itself was excellent and easy. However, the paperwork process was terrible, the wait was longer than necessary, and the woman having me fill out forms was outwardly annoyed to be there

This visit was great, the problem I have is I seem to get the full prescription and its hard to reach someone to fix the matter. They do not follow up or seem to be aware of your situation on areturn visit, I made 5-6 visit and they are still clueless.

I've never left a review for a doctor before but for what I just experienced, I must. I've already had a bad experience at this office where the office didn't let me know the doctor would be in late one daywhen I had a morning appointment. I woke up early, dealt with a huge snow storm, and was notified at the office that the doctor would be in late. Today, I call to schedule a followup appointment from my job. We agreed on a date and time and then the rep asked me what I would be going in for. I informed her it was for a continued treatment which I have previously been going for. This did not suffice and the rep continued to demand I tell her exactly what I'd be going for. I informed the rep I was at work and did not feel comfortable expressing this to her (she is not my doctor) and I did not want to communicate the information in front of my surrounding coworkers. In an extremely passive aggressive manner, the rep went on to explain to me why this information is required. I re-iterated that I had only been there for one thing and I was scheduling to continue the treatment. This did not satisfy the rep and she proceeded to give me an "okay" in the most rude possible tone and hang up on me. I do not recommend this office to anyone! Not necessarily because of the doctor. In my experience the office staff has been less than satisfactory and very unprofessional. This is the only doctors office I ever been to where the front office staff was allowed to be talking on face time while assisting me upon check-in. I felt as if I was bothering the employee. Stay away from this place.

MD and PA were very professional and efficient. Wait time is annoying as they book too many people for appointments at the same time. Front desk staff not very helpful, as she claimed my appointment was not on the schedule.

It was truly awful. I made an appointment several days in advance and was in her schedule, spent money for a cab to cross town and make it there, and when I did arrive on time for the appointment, they tellme the doctor left hours ago for the rest of the day for a family emergency. NO ONE CALLED OR EMAILED ME. Ridiculous that I spent cab fairs going there and back across town and lost an appointment I've been waiting for because they were too disorganized to notify the people in her calendar that she had left!!

I made an appointment for Saturday through Zodoc, the doctor's office canceled it, then I made an appointment over the phone for Monday, I called to confirm my appointment three times and they said it was all set for Monday at6:15pm. I arrived to the office to find out they did not have me in the system. I waited from 6:15pm until 7:45pm. After a long day at work, not so happy about it, The doctor was a little bit in a rush.

She did not have a pleasant demeanor. The resident that saw me first was nice and patient. When Dr. Saini arrived she seemed annoyed. She was supposed to order me a topical antibiotic and now a day later, no medication was ordered. My first and last visit. Very disappointed!

I waited forever to get in and then when I went to pick up my face wash they didn’t have the prior auth so I reached back out and wasn’t able to get a hold of anyone for three weeks! Allthe time I had to be on several tv shows. When finally got ahold of them they couldn’t find my information.... huge waste of time.

Horrible staff, receptionist, as well as and especially the doctor herself. Make sure to cancel all your weekly plans before coming for a visitation, because things can get ugly here. Expect your medication to be called in at the pharmacy anytimebetween 1-3 weeks, after incessant daily callings as a reminder for their incapable and incompetent staff. Dr. Zaini seems more interested in suggesting cosmetic surgical procedures to boost her own profits, as opposed to taking care of the patient for their needs. Additionally, an hour wait to get checked only for 30 seconds, does not quite strike me as a doctor. Good luck to all those involved with this office--you will need it.

Dr.Saini has a good manner which I appreciate. However, I made this appointment for a skin rash problem on my arms but she kept recommending some gels for my acne problems. Not sure if my visit goal was fulfilled at that visit.

No complaints about the office or bedside manner, however I was very disappointed with my medical treatment at this facility. I needed routine plantar wart removal, however the doctor was not skilled in doing so. Wound up with a huge blood-filledblister covering my entire big toe and was unable to bear weight through it for several weeks. Extremely disappointed with this service. Will not return.

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 outin 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.
