I visited Dr.Palep for an acne consultation. I had persistent acne for 2-3 years and nothing seemed to suppress my breakouts. Additionally, I had a few marks from prior breakouts. Dr. Palep healed my skin in less than 2 months throughtopical medication and an extraction. It’s a year later and I haven’t had to deal with any annoying breakouts and am so thankful to Dr.Palep. Would highly recommend this to anyone who’s tired of experimenting with their own solutions and ready to seek effective and professional help.

Dr. Palep was great. She was friendly and knowledgable, and explained everything to me. The appointment was quick but not rushed. I will definitely be using her as my dermatologist for any issues or cancer screens moving forward. The nurse/medicalassistant who saw me before Dr. Palep was also very nice and helpful.

Dr. Palep was able to tell me right away what was going on with my skin. I had worried about it for a week or more and she diagnosed me in less than 4 minutes after looking at my skin anddiscussing my symptoms. Very impressed! Would highly recommend and I will be back for my other dermatologic needs.

LOVED Dr. Palep. She went through my entire regime and debunked a lot of beauty blog and Sephora myths about the 1,000,000 products the internet says we need to use. She really simplified it for me and gave me excellent product recommendations.

Sapna was the kindest doctor I have met so far in NYC. She took the time to explain all my questions and gave great preventative medical advice when it comes to skin and the sun. There is a digital chart ineach room that gives a visual depiction of the skin and common questions people may have. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know that is looking for an MD. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating as well. The office is very clean and the wait time was around 10 min.

The treatment at Spring Street Dermatology is always great; HOWEVER, it is very frustrating that I often make an appointment with the doctor but then I only get the top nurse. To be fair, they do call before to tell methat but in my opinion they shouldn’t be allowed to list that the appointment is with the doctor in the first place.
