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.

I loved my Visit with Dr.Buka, I finally know the cause of something that has be bothering me for years. I have gone to several doctors and all have given me different responses and no solution. Today DR.Bukka was able to provide me with answers and solutions to my problem it was well worth the wait!!

I have been going to Dr. Buka for several years and have had amazing experience with him and his assistants. I work in the downtown area and started going to him soon after he first opened the Front Street Office. Dr. Buka is an engaging and interesting person. I also completely trust him. He takes time to talk to me and remembers things about my life to reference each time I go in. His assistant, Alette, is really lovely and does a wonderful job. I really like these people. They both go out of their way to take care of my specific needs. It is a comforting thing to have a doctor you feel really good about. Just be aware that if you want an appointment with Dr. Buka, he is only in the Front Street office on Tuesday (at least as of when I am writing this). Monday he is in Greenwich Village office. Don't forget to get one of the eggs he brings from his farm that are free to clients!

I would not recommend Bobby Buka. I have waited over a month and a half for their office to complete a Prior Authorization!! I really need the medication and even after countless times of calling their office, nothing happens. I have been put on hold for over 10 min just to be lied to. They tell me my form will be moved to the top- that was 10 days ago and nothing has been done. Buka is good but I waited over an hour to see him, spent 3 min with me and my issues are not solved. Waste of time and money.

Wait time really made me want to leave and get a refund on my card. I don't understand why Dr.'s make appointments, and then make you wait...my time is valuable and i was taking this appointment during work hours (my own personal choice). I saw him for all of 5 minutes IF THAT. Very warm, and friendly held a conversation asked me about why i was there but never examined any other place on my face aside from what i came in for (struck me as odd but hey maybe he was having a busy day and needed to move through the remaining patients on his roster) I will give him another try. Office staff was friendly but after waiting an hour...I think anyone would become impatient.

I think my visit with Doctor Buka was great, because He will go make me feel better about my keloides. I do not want they come back against? Never ever ever I want Doctor Buka to removes them for me definitely. Because I am not comfortable with them.

Besides the waiting issue I am 100% satisfied with Dr.Buka's treatment. He has actually fixed my skin. I found a dermatologist who fixed my skin after 15 years of trying different dermatologists. I highly recommend him to people who are looking for the best skin care doctor and honestly, it's worth waiting for him. Sal

the last 2 appointments I waited more than 40 minutes. If they are running late, I would be helpful for them to call patients to tell them to come in later or give them a chance to re-schedule. I came in during my lunch hour, I was very late getting back. All the digital tools like (ZOC DOC, TEXT REMINDERS...) are a waste if they don't use REAL SMART PEOPLE to make smart decisions.
