Very polite, very attentive, very informative. Open to hearing your approach on how you would prefer to treat your symptoms, i.e.: topical / oral, with / without steroids ect. Options are always a plus! You can tell they love what they do and they do it very well! Staff were all smiles and welcoming. Highly recommended. PS: Skin care vending machine in the waiting room? AWESOME. And they raise organic chickens on their roof, offering complimentary eggs while you wait. An experience to say the least.

Everything was great, wait was what you would expect for a doctors office. Get there 20 minutes ahead of appointment and be seen about 20-25 minutes after your appointment should have started. Robert was great, super nice and once I was in the exam room I was out in 15 minutes with two diagnosis.

The medical staff were thorough and friendly and seemed very competent. Check in wasn't quite seamless with ZocDoc (I had to re-fill out a bunch of info including info that was on my card which they took/copied), and I was sort of miffed at being pressured to sign a form I didn't want to sign re: billing in the case of insurance denial, but that all sort of worked out (I didn't have to sign it) and yeah. They were certainly nice enough too.

I went for a rash and the doctor was not helpful at all. I paid a lot for a consultation and was only seen for 3 minutes. The dermatologist didn't even try to see what had caused my rash or what type of rash it was. I still have my rash one month later.

The wait was absolutely horrific on a weekday afternoon. It took 40 minutes before I could meet with the PA (Dr. Buka does not see patients immediately) and another 1+ hour before meeting Dr. Buka (30+ minutes in the examination room itself). Other than that, Dr. Buka himself and the staff are quite friendly and open to questions if you're willing to spend 1-2 hours waiting.

Dr. Buka and his staff were excellent. They were very nice, and clearly put a lot of effort into their service. Had a good amount of time with Dr. Buka too, and got great answers to any questions I had. Only drawback was the wait time, which took over 30 minutes from sign-in to seeing a doctor.

The wait time wasn't anything out of the ordinary for a busy doctor's office but all the staff kept apologizing for the wait and it felt like they really meant it. And Dr. Buka was amazing! He has such a calming personality and it's clear that he really cares about his patients. It was my first time there and I'll definitely be going back.

He was probably the best doctor I have been to in NYC in over 20 years. Highly recommend and the office is very warm and un-institutional feeling. He is very nice, explains everything thoroughly. The front desk people were lovely and his assistants were perfect. I love this place!!

The location is east to find. The front desk staff was very nice and offered me refreshments. His assistants were very through with questions and about my issue. He was very nice, listened to me very attentively and cared for me and answered all my questions. He doesn't force choices on you...just an all around good doctor. Will see again for my care.

Dr. Buka wasn't very helpful to my issues, nor was he very friendly. I had been taken in back after like 15 minutes which was nice but I waited 45min to see the doctor. I'm not sure if he's used to having people of color as clients because he made a very hurtful comment towards me regarding my race like I was some kind of cripple. Also I'm very conscious about my body and how I look so when I did my screening I asked that the two people he had in the room would leave and he told me that one had to stay. I felt very uncomfortable through this whole situation and I will not go back.

I had a 5:40PM appointment and I was ushered into the room one full hour later. I saw the doctor at 7PM. That's just ridiculous. The front desk staff was rude and cold. The nurses gossiped instead of tending to patients. Additionally, one nurse couldn't figure out how to use the computer or log my medical information. I only came here because my regular dermatologist was all booked out and I needed to be seen quickly before my trip -- worst decision ever. Never go here. There are far better doctors at Tribeca Skin Center.

Dr Buka always does a great job. I've been going to his practice for fillers and Botox for years. The only downside is that the administration is a bit disorganized which can be frustrating.

I have never experienced a more non professional environment in my life. I would highly recommend seeking an expert's opinion elsewhere before ever returning to this establishment. I.E. My wait time exceeded well over an hour and a half, my privacy was violated in numerous ways, and the office operated in a dysfunctional way from start to finish.
