Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Palep was fantastic. Super personable and sweet, and more importantly, totally on top of the latest research and advances. She clearly keeps up. It also doesn't hurt that she looks barely 25 and is in her early 40s. She's honest, doesn't push products, and is super kind.
Dr. Palep was incredibly sweet, thorough and more than willing to answer all of my questions. I felt like I was in undoubtedly great hands.
Dr Palep is an exceptional dermatologist with a lovely personality and outstanding bedside manner. I've visited for medical needs as well as minor cosmetic procedures for over four years now, and each experience has never been anything less than stellar. Her assistants and front desk team are professional and pleasant as well, and are a credit to her. The newly renovated office looks great.
I could not be happier with Dr. Palep. It was my first visit to a dermatologist. She was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions, gave me a ton of information about the condition on my face I came in for, and was warm and non-judgemental.
She's the best dermatologist ever
Dr. Palep was kind and understanding. She knew what my issues were even though it was a cursory examination, and explained them to me in-depth. She listened to all of my medical history, complaints and extra issues that I forgot about and did not write down as my reason for coming. She knew the medications I needed immediately and offered their generics. Great appointment over all.
Kind, attentive, knowledgeable. A+. Excited for the next visit.
Shocking! A place where you have to waste all of your personal time waiting for a potential visit from a doctor who may show up at some point. Wait in the room dressed in nothing more than a gown, listening to awful music cranked a little too loud, waiting with bated breath hoping a doctor will show up to see you. It's really up to you how long you wait. Your original appointment time is a mere guess so really to be ignored. If you turned up an hour after your time slot you'd prob. still be too early to actually see a doctor! Roll on Trump's new health care - I mean, can the US medical profession really get any worse in delivering care? I'm a fully "pay out of pocket" patient and I still can't get to see a doctor on time.
Sapna is excellent. I will be back, thank you!
Sapna is smart, kind and very professional. She doesn't waste your time as a patient and makes sure to listen to your concern before suggesting solutions?
I had initially met Dr. Palep about 8 years ago and was sad she had left the practice I used to visit. I found her again and booked my appt through ZocDoc. I really like her and this office is state of the art. She is fiendly, talkative, answers questions. Overall very charismatic and knowledgeable. Highly recommend her
Amazing nice and thorough doctor!
I love Dr. Palep! She is always so thorough and willing to sit and talk as long as necessary to make sure you completely understand everything.
Although my appointment with her went quickly, she answered all my questions. She was very efficient and gave me a lot of useful information.
The receptionist was was extremely helpful and super friendly service. The Doctor was very attentive and addressed my questions
She was really wonderful and pleasant to talk to. However, the receptionist was a bit rude in my opinion
Everything Was Great !
Dr. Palep is simply the best, I've been coming to her for years for a variety of issues and she always gives great feedback, ensures minimal pain with constant communication, and makes me feel great about my skin.
She was amazing! She made me feel comfortable, she was so thorough, and I learned a lot! I have to go back to get a mole removed, and I'm not dreading it :)
Always highly satisfied with Dr. Palep services. She's an amazing Doctor. Will definitely recommend her.
I had a great experience during my visit with Dr. Palep. She really took the time during her examination to explain her diagnosis and answer my questions. She was very kind, positive, and respectful. At no point did our meeting feel rushed, which was a pleasant contrast to other doctors in the same field in New York that I have seen recently. The office is clean and includes some nice tech-savvy additions like touch screens that the doctor was able to use to display conditions while she educated me on my symptoms. The front-desk staff was polite and friendly. I would definitely recommend this practice.
Dr. Palep's office sends very specific instructions on their expectations of you as a patient. Making these things clear to me, that I then followed made getting in to the office a breeze. I was seen ten minutes before my scheduled appointment even! Dr. Palep had good, constructive, actionable things for me to do until the next time I see her. Her bedside manner was great, and responses to my questions were very accessible for me to understand. Would recommend if you're looking for a dermatologist!
Dr. Pales is wonderful; really very nice. The wait was too long and her prices seem high, but insurance covered a lot.
I was very disappointed. The visit was super rushed. This was a full body scan and she didn't even look at all of my moles. It was over in about 2 minutes and she spent the whole time educating me on how I should be checking my skin myself and letting her know if there is anything strange. Excuse me? You're the doctor - I'm specifically here for YOU to check and tell ME if there is anything strange. I told her staff multiple times that there is a history of skin cancer in my family and at the end of my appointment she said "I would have taken a closer look if there were a history of skin cancer in your family." UGH. It's clear that she didn't want to waste any of her time on me. Will be going to get a second opinion from a doctor who actually looks at my skin. Oh, and to top it off, she said "I'm not a cutter, we don't like to cut things off here" - well that's a shame because I certainly don't like having these moles on my body. She also advocated for freezing over cutting. Freezing is the most painful thing I've ever experienced, while I feel nothing when I'm cut. This doctor was literally the opposite of what I wanted.
Sapna Palep was very friendly. She was patient enough to listen to me and her diagnosis was great.
She was the best doctor I've ever seen. Completely down to earth and funny, too! Did a really great job of educating me on some big medical terms that I didn't understand--she easily broke stuff down so that I really got an idea of what she was talking about. Spent more time with me than other doctors I have seen in the past and was incredibly thorough. You should absolutely go see her!
Super thorough, sweet and knows her stuff.
I love Dr. Palep! She is the best.
ZocDoc was great in setting up an appointment with Dr. Palep and I had hardly any waiting time.
I scheduled an annual skin cancer screening, which I had not done in about 10 years. I had an unusual new bump on my shoulder which prompted the appointment. Dr. Palep was nice. She looked at the bump first and assured me that it was not cancer, and then proceeded to check the rest of my skin. These screenings involve checking all of your skin (all of it), so be prepared for that. They use a gown to give you a bit of modesty. I felt perfectly comfortable with Dr. Palep, the screening went pretty quickly (about 5 minutes?) and i was on my way.
Loved her, so thorough and kind!
It was great. I've seen Dr. Palep for acne treatment in the past (successful completion of Accutane). She is the only doctor at Spring Street I have recommended to quite a few of my friends. With that said, I cannot speak to the experience of the others. This time around I saw her for scar revision (steroid injections) and botox. My first time at the office was around four years ago. I don't see myself switching to another derm in the foreseeable future. She's great with tricky skin issues and darker pigmentations as well as focusing on not just fixing the problem but getting to a beautiful result.
Dr. Palep was awesome! She was kind and didn't rush my time with her at all. She explained everything thoroughly and answered all of my questions. Hopefully this regimen works.. I will be back.
I love Dr. Palep. She's very thorough and helpful. I will definitely see her again.
great bedside manner; I was very happy with the appointment
I went in for an annual skin check up and although my visit was relatively short, She was very nice and professional and answered all of my questions and concerns. She was thorough and efficient and I didn't feel rushed. Their staff is also very friendly and welcoming.
She's awesome. I'm obsessed with her/ the office/ and staff
The place was very professional and up to date, Current technology. Everyone was friendly and kind.
excellent in all forms.
Dr. Palep and her PA were great! Her bedside manner really made the exam pass quickly. She was thorough in my annual skin check and made great recommendations on what to look out for in the future. Quite a few years had passed since I was there last, and she has a way of making you feel like fast friends again. Thanks Dr. Palep and Spring Street staff!
Dr. Palep is the sweetest and really went out of her way to explain things to me. All of the staff members were kind and straightforward. A good experience overally.
Dr. Palep was very thorough in her examination and explanation of her findings. She has a great "eye" to spot things during her examination. She made clear recommendations and gave clear instructions on items to keep and eye on going forward. Very professional and well versed in her craft
Dr Palep is outstanding. I've recommended her to the most important people in my life - that should say it all.
I loved Dr. Palep! The office is nice and clean, she took her time and explained things and was absolutely lovey!
An excellent visit as always. Dr Palep is very knowledgeable and has a very vibrant personality which makes her approachable and great to talk to. Even if one's issues are relatively mundane, she is genuinely interested and makes every effort to ensure those concerns are addressed to the patient's satisfaction. You never feel she is in a hurry to wrap up the appointment even though she is clearly a very busy doctor. Her medical assistant was very professional and kind as well, as was the receptionist who received me and processed my updated paper work in advance for me. All in all, this practice is highly recommended!
Everyone in the office was polite and friendly. The doctor did not keep me waiting and her enthusiasm for my check up was refreshing. It was a pleasure, and I'll go back next year.
Excellent doctor! Would strongly recommend. Developed some cysts on my face, and she treated it really well.
Dr. Palep is a phenomenal doctor. She was very patient in answering all my questions. I was at ease speaking to her about my skincare problems and felt that she genuinely wanted to help. I highly recommend her! Fantastic doctors are hard to find these days :)
Dr. Palep is professional,friendly and answers all my questions. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes before being see. I highly recommend her.
everything was fantastic aside from wait time. my appointment was at 9:15 and i did not see the doctor until 10:15
This is my first time seeing a dermatologist and I'm very satisfied with my experience. She's very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. She makes you feel comfortable talking about your skin problems. I especially enjoy how she's very informational in general. I highly recommend her.
She was incredibly knowledgeable and professional. I will absolutely see her again!
As always very pleasant and caring.
This was my first dermatologist appointment and it went wonderfully! The team members at Spring Street Dermatology are all incredibly warm and welcoming, and facilities are bright and high tech. Dr. Palep not only walked me through everything she was doing during her exam, but was also super educational - explaining why she was looking for different things showing pictures of things to look for on my own that may necessitate a follow up visit. Great experience. I've already recommended 2 other friends to visit Dr. Palep!
I have been going to Dr. Palep for years. Even when I left NY I would take the train from CT to come see her. She is thorough, kind, and never rushes your appointment.
An excellent visit as always. I love the approach of making continuous improvements and the tailored treatment plans. The cosmetic treatments I've had done have been very effective and the price was quite reasonable. I think this is great because it makes treatments available to most people and helps them feel and look their best. Again, I highly recommend this practice and agree with other reviewers that this definitely is the "face maintenance" place!
She was fantastic. AS was the rest of her staff. And the office is clean and beautiful. Highly recommend!
Dr. Palep is amazing!
Dr. Palep was warm, didactic, and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Palep was very knowledgeable and professional.
Amazing service as always. Very clean and friendly.
I have been going to Dr. Palep since 2007. I think she is wonderful
The same feedback as always - Dr Palep is an amazing doctor. I highly recommend this practice.
Truly Dr Palep is such an amazing doctor and a very lovely person indeed. I highly recommend this practice.
Very inpressed! She listened too and addressed all of my concerns.
Dr. Palep is WONDERFUL. Absolutely wonderful. I could not recommend her more highly!
Dr. Palep seemed very knowledgeable and gave a lot of information... however I got a little lost between all of it. She did give her personal office email to contact, so that should help.
Dr. Palep saved my skin from adult hormonal acne. Very easy and fast results, I cannot recommend her enough! Her bedside manners are excellent and she takes the time to always answer my questions thoroughly. Dr. Palep is also easily accessible via email, which I highly appreciate.
Dr Palep was very nice, informative and helpful. Definitely will go back with any concerns.
Very professional, friendly and thorough. I've been seeing her for years and never had a bad experience. Highly recommend her and the office!
Great bedside manner. Answers all questions thoroughly.
I really like and respect Dr Palep. She has a lovely bedside manner, is very knowledgeable and is up to date on the latest treatments available. Very honest and open and easy to talk to. I can totally see why she is always fully booked weeks in advance. Highly recommended!
I signed up for Dr. Palep because she received such high reviews. A few days before my appointment, her office sent me a really long email requesting I fill out all the information I completed via ZocDoc on a PDF for the office and went into these really intense rules about their office. It made me want to almost cancel my appointment and find another doctor. I didn't though (out of laziness), and wrote back, "I completed this via ZocDoc. Confirmed" and when I showed up there was no problem at all and they were actually very friendly and helpful. I will go back to her next year when I need another screening but I would also love to give the feedback to the office admin letting them know that email is a total turnoff and not a representation of their care. (They are lovely)
It was a great visit. I didn't feel rushed and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
I am so impressed by how Dr Palep listened to my concerns and about the prior treatments I have tried for my acne. She was so reassuring that she will help me find the right medication to improve my skin. I am so grateful to have found a doctor who really listens and cares about her patients.
wish every doctor would treat their patients this way!
Dr. Palep was very thorough and explained everything very clearly to me. It was clear she was really paying attention to my concerns.
very impressed from the welcoming and friendly staff to the Drs.
I thought the visit went well. Now I have to see if the meds will work for me.
Dr. Palep is fantastic - great bedside manner, open to discussing any of your skincare issues, and very helpful in finding the right medication for your budget and insurance.
Dr. Palep seemed to actually care about my adult acne issues and took them seriously when other doctors had not. She told me she had also dealt with similar problems with her skin and that it would be ok. You have no idea how amazing it is to just hear someone say that. She made a plan with me and asked to see me in a month to follow up. She also considered my problem holistically, explaining that a couple of the supplements I've been taking could actually be exacerbating my issues. When I researched this at home, I found a ton of studies confirming what she said. I stopped taking those supplements right away. No other doctor had ever told me this. I was referred to her by a friend who said Dr. Palep helped clear adult acne a couple of years ago without resorting to accutane. This is a doctor you can trust to have your best interests in mind.
She's amazing! Very professional and extremely friendly! Makes you feel at home
Great, as always!
Very engaging and answered all of my questions in a way I could easily understand. She gave me more information about my body than I needed so that I was able to be reassured and have no worry.
Efficient and thorough, great doctor.
As usual, another prompt and satisfying visit with Dr Palep. She was thorough and with excellent bedside presence. this is my second visit and would highly recommend to everyone.
Best Derm EVER!
Professional, friendly and efficient Great bedside manner Her staff, especially Robert is also a total professional and makes the process work with enthusiasm and good advice!
I think she was good and I did see her once. After I saw a different dermatologist because she was very busy.
Dr Sapna was amazing. She Took her time to describe every aspect of the treatment. Her staff is friendly and polite. Two thumbs up ????
Felt very comfortable during the appointment and left reassured, best experience at a doctor visit I've had in a while.
The most amazing Dr. I have ever met in my life! so worth the wait. She has the warmest bed side manners and extremely knowledgeable.
She is fantastic! Very personable and knowledgeable.
Dr. Palep is awesome. Highly recommended!
I am usually very happy with the service I receive. However, today I had to wait 45 minutes to be seen by the doctor. It was a bit frustrating, although she apologized. I understand that people run late, it would have been nice for more updates during my appointment and for the staff (other than the doctor) to apologize for any inconvenience. Especially since I tried to move my appointment back 30 minutes and they told me that wasn't possible. I really enjoy Dr. Palep though.
Dr. Palep has canceled the last 3/4 visit I've scheduled wiith her. All cancelations were made the morning of my appointment and I was not given priority in rescheduling. She is an excellent doctor ... when I actually get to see her.
Amazing Experience! Great Staff, Awesome doctor. She's only there every other week but its worth the wait and patience. The doctor makes you feel comfortable and at ease. Very knowledgeable and seeks out information about your past medication and experiences with your problems so she doesn't repeat what you been through already with any other doctor. Highly recommended.
I was referred to Dr. Palep by at least 4 independent people before I actually visited with her. Initially, in an effort to be seen ASAP, I settled for another one of her colleagues and was disappointed by that doctor's impersonal bedside manner. After visiting SSD a second time and holding out for an appointment with Dr. Palep, it was well worth the wait. She was diagnosed me, treated me and tracked my progress. Within 6 months of following her regimen, I was getting compliments on my "naturally flawless" skin. I have decided to pay the recommendation forward and tell EVERYONE about my miracle doctor, Dr. Palep. Now all my friends are "naturally flawless" too!
Dr. Palep is so kind and nonjudgmental. It would be hard to feel comfortable asking a stranger to examine my skin for flaws, but she makes it feel totally natural and supported.
Great experience! Friendly and efficient. I've had nothing but good experiences at Spring Street Dermatology.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Palep and she made me feel comfortable right off the bat. She is also very knowledgeable and tells me the conditions that I have and exactly why she believes that I have them. She then proceeded to describe the things that she was prescribing and also told me the expected results and what the next step would be. I cannot wait to start on the regimen that she recommended because I am already feeling positive about the results.
The appointments seem a bit rushed, but Dr. Palep is very friendly and knowledgeable.
Excellent experience. The front desk staff was kind, efficient and helpful. Dr. Palep was knowledgeable but also warm and friendly and took her time explaining things and what results I should be seeing. Will be going back for sure.
She's amazing and always on point with her diagnosis! I recommend her to others all the time!
Everytime I see Dr. Palep it's an enjoyable experience. I recommend her to all of my friends.
Dr. Palep is so lovely, she made me feel very comfortable and explained everything to me, I will never see another Dermatologist again.
Excellent. Never had issues with my skin until a few months ago. Dr. Palep has an excellent bedside manner. She spent time with me, explained her suspected diagnosis and how to proceed with treatment. Will continue to see her as my only dermatologist.
Knowledgeable, caring professional with great staff and clean facilities!
Direct and seems helpful already. The pricing is affordable. Everyone was pleasant and they listened to me before giving their opinions. The doctor was direct and spent time listening as well as asking questions. Very pleasant...
Dr. Palep is a GREAT doctor! She did not keep me waiting once called back into the room, she listened attentively, answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable. We need more doctors like her!!
I think Dr. Sapna Palep is the best.
Great overall experience. She was efficient, knowledgeable and warm. I'd recommend her very highly.
Dr. Palep and her assistants were prompt, professional and engaging. She made me feel immediately comfortable and took the time to sit down, really talk with me and answer all of my questions. I'm already so happy that ZocDoc led me to her.
Knowledgeable physician and was able to diagnose me right away, at first glanced. Friendly and down to earth. Comfortable, stylish office with goodies in the lobby for patients. I'll be returning.
She took one look at me and was able to come up with a plan to fix my skin immediately -- within two weeks my acne had diminished drastically just as she said! this was a problem I had been dealing with for years and it took Dr. Palep one appointment to get it right.
My visit was outstanding. Dr. Palep and Her assistant could not have been nicer or more accommodating. I'm fair skinned and have a TON of moles and not only did Dr. Palep take her time inspecting each mole, but she was even able to remove one that looked particularly scary on the same visit! Friendly personality, super efficient and a beautiful woman. An absolute pleasure!
Amazing, knowledgeable doctor who takes the time to explain what she is doing. Always responsive and goes out of her way to help you. Fantastic office staff, very flexible. Can't recommend highly enough.
Highly recommended! Dr. Palep was very thoughough, knowledgeable, and had a great bedside manner. Her staff was very friendly as well.
Rushes through the examination and didn't listen to all of my concerns. I have a dark cystic acne that she removed, but after it healed it is still there. She did not fully remove it. She continuously tries to push patients to use her affiliated pharmacy even though I've told her multiple times before I have my own.
She is great and I highly recommend her, however I had to wait 50 minutes after my appointment time (even though I arrived 10 mins ahead of time) and I hope they will be better with time management in the future.
She was friendly and helpful. Slightly quick in and out of the room but answered all questions!
Dr Palep was absolutely delightful. I have never experienced a more warm, engaged, articulate doctor -- I would gush about her to anyone, even before I've seen results from my new medicine/regime.
This was one of the best doctors visits I have ever had. The doctor arrived on time and was very thorough.
Sapna is so wonderful! She is patient, answers my questions, and is always professional. This was my second visit and I will definitely return for any skin related needs. Highly recommend!!
I *love* Dr. Palep, and the entire practice always provides a most pleasant experience.
Very good. I'll be back!
Amazing! I recommend everyone to her.
I would recommend her to anyone needing her services.
I've actually already recommended Dr. Palep to a few of my friends. She is wonderful! The only gripe I might have is that she is not as conscientious about answering emails as I'd like. She does give you her card and tell you to email her if you have any questions but she doesn't answer quickly or at all sometimes. Otherwise, she has great bedside manner and the office and staff are great!
She was so sweet and fixed my problem right away!
Very professional and warm personality. Nice office staff. Office very clean.
wonderful. She is kind, professional and personable. She takes her time, listens and is extremely thoughtful in her approach and followup. She is the BEST doctor I have ever had.
Consistently blown away by Dr. Palep's bedside manner, professionalism, skill, and patience. Would never go anywhere else!
I loved Dr. Palep's office but unfortunately, they don't accept my new insurance.
Dr. Palep is wonderful. She is very easy to talk to and she made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend her.
Very impressed. She took the time to explain things in detail but yet at a level that was understandable.
Extremely pleasant visit! She was very easy to talk to and listened / addressed all my concerns. Left a great impression. I'll definitely go back.
LOVE Spring Street Dermatology. The staff is so warm, welcoming, and professional. Best doctor's office I have ever been to.
I was very impressed with the doctor. She was extremely pleasant, answered all my questions and explained additional things that I should be aware of in connection with my skin health. I would definitely recommend the doctor and the entire practice to anybody looking for a good dermatologist.
She is THE BEST!
Dr. Palep was approachable and had great bedside manner. She was knowledgable, thorough, and made me feel at ease during the examination.
Dr. Palep is simply awesome. She has helped my acne immensely and is now helping me with some acne scarring from previous days and also minor melasma. Highly recommended.
The staff was great. She was amazing. Knowledgeable and compassionate
This was my second visit to sapna's office and both of my experiences here were fantastic. Sapna really listens to my concerns and answers all my questions fully. The support staff is also super warm and welcoming, and their reception area is nicely designed and very comfortable (cute chandelier!) Highly reccomded!
Very pleasant and knowledgeable.
She was so informative and conversational without making you feel uncomfortable during the skin screening. I will definitely be going back again.
Dr. Sapna Palep was really such a sweetheart and extremely helpful and not to mention I loved her nail polish! The entire staff was awesome too. Everybody was friendly and smiling and it just seemed like a great atmosphere.
She was great! Looking forward to my second appointment with her.
Wonderful doctor and fantastic staff!
She was warm and nice. She spent time to listen to me, she took her time to explain things to me and she answered my questions in professional, yet easy to understand terms. I'm happy I found her on zoc doc!
I really liked Dr. Palep. She made me feel at ease as soon as I met her. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist!
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience- the doctor was super helpful and had a great personality and my wait time was minimal. The receptionist was also very helpful! Overall a great experience :)
Very professional, easy-going atmosphere, very clean space, would definitely recommend.
Knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, exudes a very comfortable atmosphere
Very thorough screening - super helpful - very friendly. Nice oofice.
She is amazing! Very friendly, knowledgeable. My appt didn't feel rushed either; she took the time to answer my questions. Would definitely recommend her!
Dr. Palep is very nice and friendly.
Love her!!! a wonderful experience, every time.
The staff was friendly and the dermatologist was very thorough in explanation of process.
Dr. Palep had great bedside manner, and was really good at explaining what she was doing. One of the best doctors I've seen in a long time. The office seemed a little disorganized though.
Dr. Palep is fantastic! Super friendly, intelligent and helpful ... And not to mention - has amazing skin herself!
The office was very clean and the staff bright and engaging. The PA and Dr Palep couldn't have been more professional and were helpful in explaining the various treatment options.
I love this doctor! She is very friendly and warm, very thorough and quick too! The offices are bright and clean and the staff is great too. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Palep was so wonderful. I went in for acne on my face and back. I waited maybe 5-7 minutes to see her. Once in the room she quickly noticed where my issues were coming from and asked me what I was comfortable doing as far as treatment. She thoroughly reviewed all my options with me and made me feel so hopeful and excited for this process. It's going to be uncomfortable, because what medication is pleasant, but there is a solution in my near future. I also mentioned to her my concern with treatment being expensive and she gave me a bag of samples for everything I needed to use and also gave me coupons for the prescriptions. I will see her again in 6 weeks for a follow up to see how I am doing.
Everyone in that office is SO nice, and never make you feel like you're wasting their time with questions. I LOVE Spring Street Dermatology.
Dr Palep is the best, if only I could find other doctors just as pleasant as her. My skin looks AMAZING because of her!
She was wonderful and thorough. The wait was very long, although the staff were extremely apologetic.
Doctor Palep was fine. But her office staff is horrible. They mishandled my blood sample, supposedly it congealed (first time this ever happened) so that the Lab was unable to successfully test it. And they still charged me for Lab fee. I've attempted to discuss this issue with the staff to no avail, where they maintained the blame on me and that they had nothing to do with billing. Once again note that I had blood drawn numerous times prior, and never had an issue with the blood congealing. Very irresponsible and unprofessional attitude.
She is the best! Patient, friendly, informative and empathetic.
As a first timer to Dermatology I was more than pleased with Dr. Palep's services. She was friendly, warm and very informative. She was transparent about her own acne issues which made me feel very normal when it came to mine. She mentioned that she would hold my hand throughout the healing process and I really felt like she meant it! I am definitely going back to her!
She is amazing. I highly recommend her. I had to wait for over 40 minutes, but she made it worth my time. Sweet and professional, answered all my questions.
Dr. Palep is really wonderful and knowledgable. She has great bedside manner and really takes time with her patients.
Dr. Palep was easy to talk and very understanding. She listened attentively to my concerns and explained all I needed to know about my treatment.
Excellent, highly recommended !!!
Dr. Palep was great! Thorough, engaging, understanding and highly informative. I'm glad she's the first dermatologist I chose to see. :)
Dr. Palep is knowledgeable and friendly. She takes the time to answer questions and helps you work with your insurance company to lower costs. I highly recommend her to all my friends.
First visit, very friendly relatable doctor who explains clearly all options for treatment. Great bedside manner ...awaiting to see results of treatment
Amazing. I love her!!!
I would recommend Dr. Palep to everyone. I've had acne for years, as a child and even in high school, and have visited many dermatologists, Dr. Palep is the only one that has made my skin clear. She is pretty amazing.
Great!! She is very thorough and spends time with you. I did not feel rushed.
this was not my first visit.
Sapna was very nice, honest and professional. However, I did feel like the appointment was a bit rushed as this is a busy office.
I have to tell the world how wonder Dr. Palep is! She not only listened to my concerns, she was very thorough and efficient. She reassured me and took great care of me. I am new(er) to New York (my year anniversary was this month) and I can't tell you how many AWFUL customer service/doctor experiences I've had. This was the complete opposite. Finally I have found people that take their profession and services seriously and I'm not going anywhere else! The front desk staff was also very friendly and helpful.
Great visit, already scheduled my next one.
Dr. Palep was wonderful! She was professional and warm. I will definitely be seeing her again in the future
Going to the office is always a pleasant experience. She makes you feel comfortable and addresses any and all concerns you have.
Started seeing her a couple of months ago, have been incredibly happy with her office and personal attention. Have a high standard for my doctors and I am impressed so far with her professional expertise. Very pleased that she is also available to communicate through email. Location and downtown vibe of the office is also a huge plus.
I've been going to Spring Street Dermatology fir a year now and have seen both Dr. Palep and Dr. Uliasz. Both are extreme professionals who are kind and honest about what you're dealing with. It's hard enough dealing with skin issues but having such nice doctors and staff is definitely helpful. The office staff is extremely accommodating and considerate as well. I've called with a few emergencies and they fit me in right away and have even emailed me forms ahead of time because I told them I would be running late from another appointment! If you're considering going to this practice, I can assure you, whoever you see will put you at ease and deal with your case with kindness and professionalism.
The best doctor I've seen in a long time!
Love Spring St. Dermatology! Had a great visit with Dr. Palep. She was super friendly, answered all my questions and was really wonderful. The office is really nice and in a great location. Will be back and recommend to friends!
One of the most thorough exams I've had from a dermatologist.
She was lovely, very calm and informative and told me everything she was doing.
Great office. Friendly staff and Sapna is an excellent Dermatologist! Highly recommend.
She's amazing. Impressive in every way.
Just as great as the first time! Highly recommend.
Had a great experience, they listened and gave great advice/treatment. Will definitely be back!
The office is very soothing, beautiful, and everyone there was really friendly. I had to wait in my room for a long time to see Dr. Palep, but once she came in she spent as much time with me as I needed. She really cares about her patients! I'm definitely making her my go-to dermatologist.
She has an amazing bedside manner. She thoroughly explained what I should expect and made sure I was comfortable with both the instructions and expectations.
I haven't seen a dermatologist in years so I was hoping to undergo a very thorough exam. That is exactly what I received. Took the time to inform me on different skin conditions before beginning the exam. I left the office feeling very confident.
Absolutely loved her. Other doctors I have seen dismissed my issues as "probably allergies" and sent me on my way. She took the time to understand and diagnose my problems, and then explained in detail why it was happening and the course of treatment. She even gives you her personal e-mail address if you have any questions. Highly highly recommend her.
She's great, friendly office, highly recommend
Very good impression so far.
Excellent doc! Very friendly. Answers her emails right away.
I've started taking the medicine for 6 days. Although I havent seem the result clearly yet, I can tell Dr palep is very responsible to her patients. Whenever you got questions, you can always email her, and she replys the email almost right away.
Dr sapna is very sweet and listen to my question and made me felt very very comfortable -double check with me about my insurance to make sure I'm not getting charge extra as well as gave me coupon to save on my prescription I only need to pay 10$extra she also gave me her emailaddress so I can contact her with any question ;all in all very very awesome experience
Loved her and she was so knowledgable!
I've been a patient of Dr. Palep's for over 3 years, and she is wonderful. She really cares about her patients and is very knowledgeable and thorough. Excellent bedside manner, and the office staff is actually pleasant to deal with. She's also responsive on email and always takes the time to answer my questions. Highly recommend!
Dr. Sapna is one of the best physicians i have ever been to. She helped me clear my face within a very short period of time and i just can't thank enough for the change that has bought into my life. She is very caring and has a very pleasing persona which in turn make you feel good and kind of to open up tell her all your concerns. So blessed to have gone to her office for consultation and treatment and would highly recommend her to all !!!
Great doctor and I highly recommend her
Absolutely LOVE her! She's so profession and personal, all at the same time. She is very smart and doesn't make you feel rushed at all. I will absolutely (and have) recommended her to other people in the city. Definitely going back on a regular basis.
Dr. Palep is the best! She's a great doctor, both medically knowledgeable and compassionate. I am so happy that I found my way to her. Dr. Mikhail (other partner in the practice) is also good and the staff is unfailingly kind and helpful.
Expert, very friendly, extremely prompt-- looking forward to coming back!
She is the BEST!!!
Kind, helpful and what she did actually worked! Can't recommend enough.
Dr. Palep is great and takes her time explaining things carefully as well as what options are best. She is very sweet and is easy to talk to.
Dr Palep is always professional, thourough and enjoyable to speak to. Nurses and desk staff were equally wonderful! I always enjoy going to their beautiful office.
I had a first visit with Dr. Palep, where we addressed a few separate issues that I am having, including some pretty obscure symptoms. She was kind, knowledgable, open to discussion, competent, and efficient without being rushed. I rarely leave reviews, but was so impressed with Dr. Palep that I had to say something. She is everything an MD should be, and one of the best I have seen lately. Highly recommend!
Everyone in this office is cheerful, pleasant and helpful, and Dr. Palep is excellent. Highly recommend.
Not sure how to rate. Going back for a procedure.
She is a great doctor! She took time to explain everything very well and offered her email address to reach her with any follow-up questions or concerns. The office staff is nice and the office itself is clean.
Very knowledgeable, friendly, and honest.
She is the best dermatologist I have had in NY. I am a loyal and happy customer, and see her every year for my skin needs.
Dr. Palep is just amazing! She's personable, warm, and doesn't rush you out the door. She seems like she genuinely cares about her patients. I love her!
To describe Dr. Palep in one word, I would have to say amazing. I went in for an extraction, and she made me feel like I was in great hands.
thorough, but quick. very friendly. made sure i had all of the information i needed on what she was doing/seeing/follow-up.
The entire office staff is very nice. I did have to wait almost an hour to be seen but was told that was not the norm. My visit went great. Dr. Sapna Palep seems to know her stuff and I hope to see great results!
My visit today was great. Doctor Palep is an amazing doctor. She answered all my questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend Doctor Palep to friends and family.
First timer. Dr. Palep was fantastic. She was extremely helpful and informative and made me feel at ease. my whole experience at Spring St. Dermatology was top notch.
Simply amazing! I had scheduled an appointment with another doctor that is closer to my office, simply to save myself the commute time, and it only made me realize how amazing Dr. Palep is. I had to schedule another appointment with her right after it to fix the damage that the other doctor left.
Sapna is an amazing dermatologist! I would recommend her to everyone
Dr Palep was wonderful - super knowledgeable yet also very personable and friendly
Dr. Palep was very easy to talk to and very informative. Her staff was professional as well.
Best dermatologist in NYC.
She was very friendly and encouraging. She was informative and helped me know my treatment options. I trust her and will be going back for treatments.
I am late in my reivew, but Dr. Palep helped clear all of my acne after years of trying so many different products and methods. She is easy to talk to and answered all of my questions. She makes you feel comfortable, and I feel like she understood exactly what I was experiencing. Dr. Palep is probably my favorite person in the world.
Amazing. Very outgoing and have me immediate and useful advice on how to deal with my skin complexion + treatment
Dr. Sapna Palep can only be described with 1 word: AWESOME. She was patient in listening to my concerns and worries about my skin, and provided me many treatment options providing me with her suggestion based on my comfort levels and personal preferences. I have been on her treatment plan for a few weeks now and can say my skin looks even better than I imagined. When I had a small issue with the topical medication, she replied to my email immediately and provided me with a remedy even sent the script to the pharmacy for me!
Very warm, yet highly professional at the same time. By far the best doctor I've ever been to, (primary care or specialist).
She was very nice and I highly recommend her. I went for a full body check and she was very professional and clear.
Dr. Palep was wonderful; clear, concise, and thoughtful of my needs from a wholistic perspective.
She's great. Professional, personable, very knowledgeable. Takes her time and makes sure she's doing the job right rather than rushing you out.
I highly recommend Dr. Palep. She always has an excellent demeanor during appointments and seems to truly want to help solve any problems that you are having. Excellent doctor, excellent office.
Dr. Palep is a wonderful dermatologist. Although the wait can get frustrating (but honestly, i have yet to go to a doctor in NYC where you did not have to wait even if you did make an appointment), she is a great doctor, listens carefully to your medical issues, and takes her time explaining the diagnosis and the treatment options. The receptionist/front desk person and nurses that work in that office are really nice too. The office decor is very contemporary and clean - but not overly sterile. I highly recommend Dr. Sapna! By the way, she responds to emails! And not just with one of those standard responses where the doctor asks you to make an appointment to discuss. Dr. Sapna definitely puts thoughts into her responses (and of course she cannot diagnose you without seeing you. What is not to like about that - a doctor that actually cares about her patients and their well-being. I highly recommend Dr. Sapna.
Dr Palep was great! She explained everything during the appointment (with illustrations to boot). Would 100% recommend her!
Dr. Palep was fantastic! She took the time and listened to every little question and (hypochondriac) concern I had and addressed them all very thoroughly and on the spot. I could not have been more impressed.
Excellent, kind and thorough. Highly recommend.
It was my first visit with Dr Palep and it was very good. I've been visiting her fairly consistently ever since.
I think Dr Palep is a great person and is very knowledgeable. Her only con is that she likes to push her $40.00 products in your face after a consultation.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Palep. She was extremely down to earth, courteous and informative. I definitely would recommend her to my family and friends!
Dr Palep is great. Super professional, very intelligent, articulate, seems up on the latest and greatest. Bed side manner is top notch - she actually listens and responds to your questions. Sweet, kind, and her staff is great too. Definitely a recommend. She'll put a smile on your face.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Palep. She was very friendly, knowledgable, and have excellent manners. I feel very comfortable talking to her. Highly recommend !
Absolutely great experience with Dr. Palep and her staff. She took her time to fully explain everything to me, gave me tons of samples, actually talked with me (instead of being like some other doctors that talk down to u), and was an overall great doctors! Dr. Palep has become dermatologist and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great dermatologist!
Quick, to the point, but not rushed. Great.
Excellent doctor. Very thorough explanations and a warm personality. I'll be a patient for life.
Dr. Palep is very thorough and has an excellent bedside manner - she is very easy to talk to. I will never go to another dermatologist's office again as long as I am in NYC!
Dr. Palep answered all my questions. She explained every detail. She was very honest with me about procedures I had to get and she gave me some options to save money. I really appreciate that she gives you a realistic expectation of results. I felt very comfortable asking her questions. I am also very happy she wasn't trying to rush me out either. My first visit was excellent and I will continue to go to her.
Quick and efficient!
Dr. Palep is excellent. She is knowledgeable and efficient, while still being very generous with her time. You simply will not find someone to help you take better care of your skin.
I LOVE DR. PALEP!!! She is very down to earth and explains everything. I was referred to Dr. Palep by someone that has been treated by her in the past which lets me know she knows what she's doing. Can't wait to see the results.
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Palep. She was extremely courteous and informative. I definitely would recommend her to my family and friends!
Doctor Palep is the greatest! She's very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Her office is run very well. Visits are a pleasure, and my skin has improved!
Long wait time before seen by doctor.
I appreciate that Dr. Palep was very thorough and offered solutions to my questions.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Sapna Palep. She made me feel very comfortable and took the time to explain everything thoroughly. I'm looking forward to seeing her again.
Dr. Palep is simply fabulous - totally high tech in terms of her facility and techniques and puts old school dermatologists to shame. She has solved all of my skin issues and I will be a loyal patient forever. If I end up looking nearly as stunning as she does, that would be a plus.
I visited Dr. Palep about 3 times, first for a consultation, then 2 MiraDry treatments. The treatments did not go smoothly, it was awkward that the machine kept overheating and we had to take (painful) breaks to wait for it to cool down. Also, I thought she had a poor bedside manner in that she was somewhat mocking of my condition. I don't feel like she set good expectations of what the treatment would be like or how long it would last. Overall, a very disappointing experience.
Dr. Palep is fantastic!
they are firece about collecting their money. They take the co-pay before the appointment.
I got a referral to Dr. Palep from a dermatologist in my previous city. I was pleasantly surprised at the overall appointment. They accomodated me even though I was very late! I was seen right away. Dr. Palep listened and answered all my questions before giving me any recommendations. That was a first! All in all, I would highly recommend.
Dr. Palep is amazing. She always makes me feel as if she is truly listening and open to feedback. Instead of a unilateral doctor to patient discussion she listens, follows up with questions to clarify, and then confirms whether her recommendation is satisfactory. Just great.
I have seen Dr. Palep for three years. She is very knowledgeable, nice and always thinks patients as priority. She cured my acnes that bothered me for years and is taking care of my skin pretty well.Staff is also very nice and professional, waiting time is usually less than 10 mins.Not easy to get an appointment but there are always other doctors in the facility who are awesome as well.
Dr. Palep was incredibly easy to talk to and very engaging, understanding, and knowledgeable. Great visit!
Dr. Palep is great. The premises are impeccable.
Dr Palep is very attentive and truly cares about her patients. I recommend her to all of my friends!
Dr. Palep is terrific, but I was kept waiting 45 minutes for my 8:15 am appointment. The office policy requires patients to reschedule appointments and pay a $50 fee if they arrive more than 15 minutes late. Patients' time also is valuable. The office might consider allowing additional time per appointment so patients are not kept waiting so long.
I feel confident that I get excellent treatment from Dr. Palep. She is always professional, precise and friendly. However I have found that the wait times tend to be a little longer than comfortable. It's a great practice, but it's not speedy.
I'm not recommending her purely on the basis of her staff. Otherwise she came highly recommended from two close friends.
I would recommend this Doctor to anyone. She is pleasant, efficient and very caring.
Dr. Palep was very thorough and knowledgeable about my skin conditions. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great Dermatologist.
I'm in my 30s, and had been to many dermatologists. Dr. Palep is the first doctor to completely cure my acne. I could not be more thankful!
I've seen Dr. Palep a couple times over the past year that I've been a patient at Spring Street and I love her "bedside" manner. Very easy to talk to and is great with emailing right back if I have had any follow up questions.
She was wonderful. Professional, helpful, knowledgable and very nice. I was very very pleased. I highly recommend her.
Super impressed with the warmth and the efficiency of this practice. Welcoming receptionist, terrific modern and clean office, no wait time (this is unheard of in Manhattan) and that's not even commenting on the doctor herself...she was delightful, knowledgeable and provided information and context that no prior dermatologist had shared during routine skin cancer checks. This was my first visit and I'll be back regularly.
She was very pleasant and personable. She answered all of my questions, was very sweet and super helpful. I got what I wanted and needed out of the appointment, her staff was friendly and everyone was very thorough. A huge relief after many experiences with horrible doctors and staffs in New York. She was great!
She's very knowledgeable and attentive. Highly-recommended.
Dr. Palep is, without a doubt, one of the best dermatologists in New York. She cleared my lifelong acne problem up in less than a month, and 16 months later, my skin is clear and beautiful. She's very nice, the office is super chic, and she takes all your skin concerns seriously! Love her!
Excellent. The only doctor that could treat my acne. I cannot recommend her enough. I am so pleased with her that I'd wait months just to have an appointment with her!
Dr. Palep is by far the most wonderful doctor I have ever visited. She is smart and sweet and helpful. Definitely the best derm I've ever seen. She's so understanding and caring. I can't say enought positive things about her.
She is a lovely doctor with amazing bedside manner and always goes into detail about the procedures or medications.
Very friendly, very knowledgeable, excellent manner.
Dr. Palep is so darling! Going to Spring Street is such a treat.
Fantastic doctor. One of the few doctors that actually care about your issues. She'll sit you down and go over everything in detail - very informative. She'll even break down the science behind it if you're willing. Not condescending at all like some folks. She also helps out in any way possible even through e-mail. You don't see that too often!
Dr. Palep is so lovely and really takes time to listen to your issues and concerns. She explains the skincare regime that you should utilize and answers any questions that you may have. Helped put me at ease and gives me hope that I will see results.
Dr. Palep is one of the nicest and most professional doctors I ever dealt with. She really knows knows her stuff and my skin has dramatically improved because of her. Only problem now is that she's so popular that you literally have to book an appointment months in advance to see her. Can't blame her, she's one of the best in the biz.
She is amazingly kind, professional, friendly, and a perfect advertisement for her advice on skin care. Her's is flawless. She is never in a hurry and answers all your questions. She explains each procedure as she administures it and tells you the why and how. I can't imagine going to another dermatologist after becoming her patient.
She was very friendly and professional. I have a history of skin cancer in my family and she took the time to educate me on the various types of skin cancer as she was going through the appointment. I was there for a full body skin exam as I have moles that I need to watch so they don't turn into melanoma. She ended up having to do a biopsy which was very quick and painless and gave me great directions on how to care for my stitches. I would recommend her to anyone- she made me feel so comfortable during the exam and answered all my questions!
Love Dr. Palep!
Dr. Palep is amazing. She takes the time to go over treatments and makes you feel at ease. I've tried other Dermatologists who just didn't take the time to explain things but Dr. Palep is just wonderful!
Excellent Doctor, I highly recommended
Awesome, awesome Doctor! Very knowledgeable, polite and super engaging! She actually listens to every word you say and gives you undivided attention. Best Doctor ever!
Dr. Palep is AMAZING. The office is clean, the receptionist is very polite. The staff is great. Dr. Palep took the time to listen to my concerns and spent a decent amount of time talking to me during my visit. I am so excited to have found this place (and this lovely doctor).
Dr. Palep was very personable. She was also very knowledgeable to the core, earning my trust. Her appearance it a testament to what she does. You know - unlike a doctor telling you not to smoke while doing it. I'll give her an A easily
Do not recommend. It is impossible to get a follow-up appointment within the same month, the next availability was 3 months later. They took all sorts of blood tests and charged me for it but never called to share their findings. I called the clinic twice but was unable to receive my reports. The doctor never returned my calls.
This was actually the best dr appt I've ever had! She is comfortable, knowledgeable, easy to talk to, professional and very sweet. Dr.s usually make me nervous--that they're not listening, not interested, don't actually care--but Dr. Palep was exactly the opposite. Was so pleasantly surprised.
Dr. Palep was professional while managing to be very personable simultaneously. I went about some pigment change on my face, and she was cool enough to show me she has some as well, just an issue some of us darker completed people have. Very down to earth, truly listened to my concern and as long as she stays just as she is, I will never have another dermatologist!
Great doctor! I had a skin cancer screening with Dr Sapna Palep and she took the time to explain every step of the process and made me feel totally at ease. Will definitely make her my dermatologist!
Dr. Palep was extremely friendly and likeable while being completely professional and quite satisfyingly thorough. I will continue to see her whenever I have dermatological needs and will absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of a thoughtful, kind and confident dermatologist.
She is excellent...thorough yet efficient!
I loved my visit with Dr. Sapna. She is very gracious and is the first doctor that has ever sincerely listened to everything I had to say. she is extremely knowlegeable and joy to have as a doctor. I have already told my friends about my experience.
Dr Palep is lovely. She's caring, considerate and compassionate and takes the time to actually listen to her patients. She seemed very knowledgeable and understood exactly what my problem was. The staff is very professional and friendly, and the office clean and very modern. I especially loved the free bottled water and granola bars in the reception area. :)
Pleasure to be arround her
Excellent doctor. Very information and easy to talk to.
I have never met a nicer, more informed dermatologist, and I have seen many! I am excited to start my new regimen and look forward to positive results! What a lovely doctor...! Wow, they do exist ..!
The best in NYC
This is the best doctor's office experience I have had since coming to NYC. The location is great, the office is beautiful and Dr. Palep is a wonderful. She is friendly and kind and knows what she's doing.
Very sweet lady. Explained things really well and I'll definitely recommend.
Dr. Palep is amazing! She's knowledgeable and attentive to your needs/questions. I plan on referring her to all of my friends!
Dr Palep is fabulous! Love her office and her bedside manner. Her staff is lovely and every experience I've had here has been great. Plus, any doctor's office with a chandelier in the waiting room is ok by me!
Fantastic experience. Friendly, caring, she listens to your concerns without rushing you out the door.
Dr. Palep is always so friendly and cares about finding the best solutions for me.
Dr. Palep was very good. I didn't go in for anything very difficult, but was very helpful. Will return to her.
direct, efficient, attentive, warm -- i felt so comfortable for someone i've only met for 15min
Dr. Palep was amazing! She talked to me on a human level - not just doctor to patient. She made me feel very comfortable! I would definitely recommend her!
Absolutely professional and excellent bedside manners. She answered all my questions (even the silly ones!) and very patient through the entire time. I will highly recommend her to anyone with dermatological needs. I am going to start on her recommended treatment regime and hopefully see some great results!
Dr. Palep is patient, friendly & very knowledgeable. An absolute pleasure!
I went for a skin check and she was fantastic. Was extremely thorough, yet I didn't feel self conscious or uncomfortable for a second. The best.
Dr. Sapna is fabulous. She is always very cheerful and more than willing to take the time it needs to ensure all my questions are answered. I highly recommend Dr. Sapna.
She helped clear up my acne, My skin has never looked this good!
I love Dr. Palep and everyone at Spring Street Derm! The service is phenomenal and all employees are an absolute pleasure to be around. I will book an appointment 5 months in advance if I have to. Amazing here! !
Spring Street Dermatology is a beautiful office with a terrific staff. Dr. Palep is amazing. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and she treats it with the importance it deserves. Her knowledge and immediate action of finding solutions to skin problems shows that she takes great care in her work. I always recommend her to my friends without a second thought. My visits are always enjoyable.
She is extraordinary. I wish all doctors were like her.
Dr. Palep is amazing! She takes the time to get to know you and answer all of your questions thoroughly. I feel completely understood and reassured when I leave our appointments.
Dr. Palep was extremely professional and thorough. She made sure to take the extra time to explain everything to me. She was great! Emily
Great doctor. Had to wait 30 min in the room.
Great visit. Dr. Palep was very honest about what my options were and was open to educating me on the options.
Couldn't have been happier with my first appointment with Dr. Palep. She engages with you as a person and looks at you while she speaks as opposed to staring at a computer screen. She explains all of your options very clearly without making you feel pressured one or way or the other and she made me feel that she had all the time in the world to talk and address any concerns I might have had.
I had to wait for an hour after my scheduled appointment time before I was seen. I arrived 10 minutes early so it felt like an unnecessary amount of time to be waiting. Once the Dr. came in she made sure my concerns were adressed and we worked out a treatment plan that made me feel comfortable, and set up a follow-up appointment. this is a busy practice, so finding a time to come in is often tricky.
I really like this Dr. The location is great, the office is great. However, there are a set of forms that had to be filled prior to the consultation; insurance and such. The last of these forms was a 20-30 set of fees and charges that needed to be initialized. A fee for this and a fee for that, random fees. It read a lot like the fine print you'd find at a bank. It was odd.
Dr. Palep is great! She's so easy to talk to and takes her time to really listen to your concerns.
Amazing! Go see her.
Excellent!!!!! the best dermatologist .
The doctor was great and really took the time to explain everything. Highly recommend!
It was great! She was very understanding of my acne problems and my overall concerns about oral medications. She took her time to explain the skin regimen I should use and any potential issues that may come up from the regimen she recommended, which I appreciated. Overall, very thorough appointment, didn't feel rushed at all.
My visit with Dr. Palep was excellent. The staff is friendly and my wait time was minimal. She was very thorough, answered all of my questions, and made sure that I understood everything. I felt like she was really concerned about my needs as a patient instead of just trying to rush me out of the office. I'd highly recommend her!
She both told me what I had and then explained exactly what it was. She was then very thorough in telling me what she was prescribing (and the caveats about what might not be covered by insurance -- and the alternatives) and how to use the various creams, etc. Excellent.
Absolutely LOVE Dr. Palep. Excellent first visit to the dermatologist.
Dr. Palep was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She took time to explain things to me and help me to understand the answers to several questions I had. Generally she made me feel at ease and was able to make some helpful recommendations! Looking forward to seeing her again.
Very thorough annual skin screening. Great bedside manners, friendly, knowledgable, and provided samples for my eczema.
Dr. Palep was great- very professional, very helpful. She provided me with instructions, samples, and really great advice.
She has been the best clinical experience that I've ever had. fit me in with a covering MD when i needed to be seen immeidately. and her admin is simply amazing; so professional , friendly and efficient.
She focused on me, her patient, for a solid 20 minutes and answered every question I had.
Dr. Palep is amazing! She didn't seem to be in a rush as she listened to all my concerns patiently and explained to me my options with great detail. I highly recommend her.
Strongly recommend Dr. Palep.She put me at ease from the start, and my visit was very informative and thorough.
Dr. Palep is so friendly, easy to talk to, and calming. She takes time with me to review any issues each time I am in her office. She always tells me I can email her with any questions between visits, is professional, courteous, and genuine. Would absolutely recommend her.
Excellent! Very detailed.
She's fantastic-highly skilled and took the time to explain everything to me
Such a good experience! First of all- the office is really pretty and they have free coffee/water/etc. Receptionist was very friendly and professional and I was taken back right away. Dr. Palep was great- she just sits and chats with you like you're old friends. She gave me really thorough information, answered all my questions and really knew her stuff! Plus I didn't feel rushed in the slightest. Overall great experience- so glad I chose her!
always wonderful. like visiting an old friend! I have recommended her many times over.
Oustadning and caring physician.
She's great and I have already recommended her to tons of my friends.
Dr. Sapna Palep is great! She is very friendly, and professional. Dr. Palep listens and provides solutions to all of your concerns and doesn't rush you out of the office. I would recommend Dr. Palep to everyone.
Favorite doctor EVER
Dr. Palep was absolutely amazing. She listened to all my questions and was extremely knowledgeable about all my issues.
She is wonderful doctor. She is very patient and caring. You feel very relaxed while talking and asking questions about your concern.
She's the best!
She was absolutely sweet and down-to-earth and at the same time knowledgeable, confident, and passionate about educating me on how to best take care of my skin and the underlying biological processes.
Most amazing doctor I've ever met. Her bedside manner was beyond excellent. She was thee most thorough dermatologist I've ever visited as well. I had melanoma when I was 15 and have seen a few dermatologists since them for check-ups, never had one as completely thorough as her. She even caught some pre cancerous skin legions that no one had thought anything of before and offered to freeze them off the same day but my schedule didn't allow me. Only bummer is I couldn't get in with her for a follow-up for two months so I booked with another doctor who I'm sure will be excellent. There's a reason this office is so highly rated! Couldn't be happier :)
The office was very welcoming and relaxing. It didn't feel like I was in a doctors office at all.
The most awesome dermatologist I have ever been to.
It was a wonderful visit, I was very nervous going into it. She made the visit so comfortable and explained everything. I will be definitely be seeing her again and will be recommending her to family and friends too.
My first visit was yesterday. From start to finish, the office staff, as well as Dr Palep, are personable, and professional.
She seemed very nice, but I wish I could rave about her like everyone else on here. I felt that she didn't spend enough time with me to really understand how my skin works (diet, life style), and she didn't even do the thorough skin examination. She dismissed me current facial regime and put me on her standard acne treatment (which isn't working out very well)...and it sucks that she booked like 2 months advance! It's unfortunate that finding the right acne medicine is just as difficult as finding a good derm.
I met with Dr. Palep for the first time today. My appointment was booked months ago but it was definitely worth the wait. She explained everything very well, made suggestions for OTC products, and made me feel at ease.
First time patient, so this review is based on my one experience. Dr. Sapna Palep = Great bedside manner, courteous, took the time to explain things. Wish I had more time with her since this was my first visit to also talk about current skin care and condition and get an overall assessment/reco from her. We only covered the general yearly skin check, so perhaps another visit would be different. Office/staff = Really nice and timely. Had plenty of reminders to ensure I was on time and prepared with paperwork, etc. However, their internet was down and I couldn't book my follow up appointment. The receptionist said she would call me to book the appointment once the internet went back up but she never did.
I can't say enough about how highly I think of Dr. Palep both professionally and personally. It is rare to have the pleasure of knowing someone of her caliber let alone receiving treatment from her.
One of the best doctors overall I have ever seen
Excellent doctor, thorough care, insightful recommendations, conveniently located.
Great experience from beginning to end- the staff was quite courteous & Dr. Palep took the time to provide a thorough explanation and answer all my qts! Highly recommended.
She takes time to answer any questions. She's the best
Wait time was very short (5-10 min). Wait room was very comfortable. Met with Dr. Palep and she spent a good amount of time with me. She was extremely nice and was sure to answer all of my questions. She did not seem bothered by all the questions I had and she even made sure I had all of the information she gave me correct before leaving. Highly recommended! She is one of the only doctors I have that takes the time to listen without making you feel rushed.
She was so warm and friendly and helpful. I am so happy that I came here to help clear up my skin. I am sure that I am going to get good results! The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful and the office is great looking ;) Very modern!'
I thought Sapna was great. She wrote down the names of all the paricular little dermatological eccentrecities I had, and was able to answer all my questions. She offered me options to remove certain blemishes, but left it for me to decide.
Very informative and such a nice person (felt very comfortable asking questions)
She is smart, professional and jus fab...she makes you feel utmost comfortable and at ease .She listens and explains all the queries ,,She defintely knows whats best for your skin and gives you honest opinions.She knows it all that you would entrust in her within no time!Very down to earth,polite and cordial. A ll the reviews written are just so true.....
The whole experience was fantastic. I've never been treatedly so warmly in a doctor's office and never seen so quickly! On time! Dr. Palep made me feel very comfortable and was happy to answer any questions I had.
Every visit I've ever had - the staff are nice/courteous. Dr Palep herself is outstanding in every aspect one should care for their Doctor to be - smart, knowledgable, patient, caring, and always out for my best interest. On top of that she's friendly, funny, etc..so that always makes the visits a pleasure rather than a drag.
The office was lovely, with snacks and drinks available in the waiting room, and everyone was extremely helpful and professional. Dr. Palep was very sweet, easygoing and totally thorough in her exam. She took the time to answer all my questions, and offered her e-mail if I have any concerns in the future.
Really sweet and really thorough. She took her time to explain everything to me and to answer my questions.
Dr. Palep is very sweet and caring. She's concerned about your well being and will do everything to make sure you leave her office comfortably.
Awesome and knowledgable!
The best doctor I have ever been too!
I strongly recommend Dr. Palep. She is a very good doctor with a well-run office.
She was very warm and sweet. She didn't rush through the appointment like many doctors but actually took the time to explain what she was prescribing and what my issues were. She even gave samples until I can get the prescription filled.
She was great. Made a usually uncomfortable body exam very comfortable.
great bedside manner, very pleasant and professional. I wish all doctors were like her. Great experience. A+++
I absolutely loved Dr. Palep. I've visited with her twice already and she is one of the best doctors I've encountered. She is easy to talk to and recommends a treatment plan right away. Very knowledgable. Definitely my permanent dermatologist. I've already told my entire family about her and they're all planning to make appointments with her. Highly recommended.
SHE IS AMAZING!
Amazing doctor to say the least, very kind and personable she answered all my questions and made me feel so comfortable. She was very open to me being able to reach her as well if I had any questions and listened to all my concerns as well. I highly recommend her. The young lady at the front desk was also very warm and welcoming, and my prescription was sent and ready to pick up by the time I got home. Thank you again!
Fantastic, highly recommend
Great experience - I saw an opening on ZocDoc and grabbed it immediately. Very friendly staff and Dr. Palep was so kind and spent ample time explaining things to me and making sure I felt comfortable with the plan she had! And the elegant, chic feeling to the whole office didn't hurt either!
Professional. Friendly. Efficient
Very professional. Accurate and has provided my a regimen for my acne that I think may actually work! I've been to three other doctors and no improvements but with Dr. Palep's prescriptions I already feel my skin improving.
Easily the best doctor (not just dermatologist) I have ever been to.
I love love love her! I have never left a review for anyone before, but she is an amazing doctor and has great bedside manner. My skin has never looked better. I have sent all of my friends her way.
Every appointment I have had with Dr. Palep has been wonderful. I can't speak highly enough of her. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens, and makes you feel completely comfortable.
Wonderful doctor. Very reassuring and answers e-mails quickly!
Dr. Palep was great. She listened to my concerns and offered treatments with which I am comfortable. She was very thorough in explaining her diagnosis, outlining the process and expected effects, and describing the treatments she was prescribing. She made sure to make herself available in case I had any questions after the appointment.
She was great and listened to my skin concerns. Informed me how to use products and when to use them. Also, recommend some great inexpensive products. I will definitely make her my permanent dermatologist.
My skin has never looked better.
I can honestly say that I was amazed in every sense of the word in regards to my visit. It literally could not have gone better. Everyone was so nice and helpful and Dr. Palep seemed extremely genuine. She also spoke to me about all my available options and explained everything. I am very glad I chose to go here.
Dr. Palep was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The office is gorgeous, receptionist totally helpful and I was sent home with lots of samples. So glad I found her!
Dr. Palep is fantastic!!!
Love her! It has been so beneficial, my skin has improved dramatically, and it's always a pleasure being treated in her practice.
now i know why she has such great reviews! :)
Absolutely pleasant! I have finally found a dermatologist who knows their material and wants to actually help others look and feel their best. Thanks!
Dr Palep is personal as well as professional. She combines her excellent medical training with respect and attention to the patients wishes. I feel lucky to have found her.
the office is GORGEOUS and clean. The staff (receptionist and assistant) were through and sincerely nice. Dr Palep was very thorough and took her time to explain everything she was doing. She has a great bedside manner, i was comfortable and at ease the entire time.
I was so pleased with Dr. Palep and her staff. Dr. Palep is warm, knowledgeable, and approachable. The receptionist is also a joy, and the whole visit feels more like a spa outing as opposed to a trip to the doctor. Highly recommended!
I looooved her! She was so sweet. She took her time and answered every one of my questions. She made me feel so comfortable. I left wanting to be her friend!! Highly knowledgeable and would definitely recommend her to everyone I know. Great experience.
This was one of the best experiences I've had with a specialist. She took the time to explain everything in concepts a layman can understand, but the appointment was swift and efficient. She laid out options and recommendations, but put the choice in my hands. I'm going to recommend Dr. Palep to all my friends.
So friendly and in informative. I would recommend her to anyone!
I must say Dr.Palep is the BEST,she actually takes the time and cares! I highly recommend her,I already told my friends,family and co-workers to switch to her. Receptionist is sweet as well! I love this place! And I feel very comfortable! Thank you so much Dr. Palep;)
I saw Dr. Palep for a hormonal acne problem. She was extremely kind and knowledgable. I felt like I was at a relaxing spa, rather than a lifeless doctor's office (even the elevator smells great!). I only waited about 10 minutes, but would of waited longer just to enjoy the bottle water, style magazines and beautiful decor. I left feeling confident and excited for the results.
It was a very good experience.
Terrific dermatologist, only downside is she stays pretty booked up so it can be tough to get an appointment with her.
Best dermatologist I've been too, very friendly and professional
Dr. Palep is really good at what she does. My 3 visits deserve 5 stars. Appointments right on scheduled time. Lobby/Waiting room offers coffee tea cold water bottles and snacks. Waiting time in consultation room 5min. Spotless office. Examination and procedures done with a lot of care and very good results. After visit email correspondance at any time. SpringStDerm staff is professional and friendly. My best experience at any medical location in the city! Thank you
She's very sweet!
My first visit to Dr Palep but will certainly be back. Was very impressed not only with her comprehensive knowledge but her friendly manner.
Dr. Palep was amazing. She did such a thorough job with my annual exam and made me feel comfortable and cared for as a patient. She explained everything and answered my questions without making me feel rushed or that any question was silly. Amazing dermatologist, will definitely keep her and would highly recommend!
She was amazing!! Having seen other doctors that make you feel like just another nameless face, she was a breath of fresh air. She was reasonable in her approach and had great ideas in ways to treat my skin without going crazy on expensive creams and harsh chemical treatments. Would definitely recommend her.
loved her. she was not afraid to touch my scars with her bare hands, and i felt very comfortable talking to her. she is a good listener, explains everything in detail, top notch equipment, very clean and bright office, pleasant staff. Just as nice as she is beautiful.
She is amazing! Felt like I have known her for years! She really knows what will work for each person. I love her!
She was very personable and helpful and I definitely did not feel rushed.
Probably the best dermatologist I have ever had. She seemed very knowledgeable (even about things that completely stumped the other doctors I've seen). She seems like a genuinely nice person and took the time to thoroughly explain everything to me. Also, the office is really nice and I love the little coffee / snack bar they have in the waiting area. I would definitely see her again.
Very very good bedside manner!
This was my first visit with a dermatologist and it went extremely well. The prior reviews of Dr. Palep were all correct; she is very professional and knowledgeable. Even though the appointment started a little late, it was well worth it because I did not feel rushed at all during the appointment. Dr. Palep answered all of my questions and I will certainly recommend her to all of my friends.
I usually dread going to the doctor, but I don't mind going to Spring Street Dermatology. Dr. Palep is hands down the best Western doctor that I've ever seen. She is friendly, efficient, effective, honest, and a great communicator. After years of awful acne and feeling low confidence about my skin, Dr. Palep cleared it up after about 2 weeks and 2 visits. She is a miracle worker! I'm wearing less make-up and getting compliments on my skin thanks to Dr. Palep.
She is very helpful, patiently answered all my questions, has a great clinic with top-notch equipment, and is very open to discuss different treatment alternatives with the patient. Great experience!
Dr. Palep was great! She listened to my concerns, and was very helpful. Dr. Palep also encouraged me to reach out to her via email if I have any follow up issues/concerns. The waiting room is also very comfortable and their entire staff seemed happy and friendly. Great atmosphere, especially for a doctor's office.
From the moment you meet Dr. Palep, it is clear she loves what she does. She puts you at ease with her warm bedside manner and in the way she communicates her knowledge. I felt very comfortable asking questions and left feeling like she really helped me.
I absolutely loved my consultation with Dr. Palep. She was very thorough asking me every single question one could think of. Also, she was so helpful when it came down to the medications I have to buy. Since I don't have insurance she told me I should get the generic brand so I don't have to spend so much money. She not only cares to better my skin but also takes into consideration my economic situation. With Dr. Palep, you feel as though you connect and make a friend. I am definitely coming back for a second consultation.
When I first started Dr. Palep things were better but in the past year my past 4 experiences with her and her staff have been incredibly unpleasant. The receptionist and nurse barely smile and act like you are causing them a burden. Dr. Palep spent less than 2 minutes with me and was friendly but dismissive and clearly rushed. I use to recommend Spring St dermatology to everyone I knew and raved about them. I no longer do and am looking for another dermatologist in the area.
Dr. Palep was fantastic. She is very caring and attentive to your needs. I haven't started the medicine yet so I don't know if it will work but judging by her knowledge and helpful attitude I think she recommended a good medicine that fits my needs. I would definitely recommend her. I got great vibes and a hassle free experience for my first time visit!
One of the best doctor's appointments I've ever been to!
She was completely lovely. Knowledgable and thorough but also spoke to me like I was human. The office is clean and modern. The service was fast. I was able to get in and out on my lunch break. I highly recommend Dr. Palep.
Sapna's probably my favorite doctor ever, the office is fine (SOHO loft feel). SUPER easy to make appointments. Only negative to my visit was that I was left waiting in the surgery for what felt like 20 mins. Highly recommended
Seen immediately, Dr. Palep is incredibly kind and helpful, willing to answer all questions.
Dr. Palep was so nice and helpful. She developed a plan for my acne, and explained everything for me. She even provided samples of all the products I would be using. Office staff was very friendly and helpful. And the office space itself is beautiful. I'm really glad I found her on ZocDoc and booked an appointment.
Very friendly, understanding and thorough. She explained the regiment clearly and answered all my questions without making me feel embarrassed or rushed. Beautiful office and very friendly, professional staff.
Immediately put me at ease. She took the time to explain everything she did during the appointment and to make sure I was comfortable with the prescription instructions. One of the nicest dermatologists I've ever visited!
I had read really great reviews about Spring Street Dermatology and about Dr. Palep but the actual visit was even better. I appreciate that they give you the opportunity to complete forms in advance, which allowed them to see me right away. The nurse took detailed notes of why I was there and when Dr. Palep came in she had already been briefed by the nurse. Dr. Palep spent close to an hour with me, was extremely informative and patient. I was really blown away by how down to earth and thoughtful she was. She took the time to let me explain my situation/symptoms and diagnosed me quickly but I appreciated that she took the time to explain why this was the diagnosis and explain the cause of the symptoms to me. I have been to other dermatologists where they diagnose you without even taking the time to listen to you, and you feel steamrolled. At the end of the visit, she encouraged me to make a follow up visit and offered for me to email her if I had any questions. I was really apprehensive about visiting a dermatologist, but this was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend Sprint Street Dermatology.
I have truly enjoyed my visit with Dr.Palep and I will definitely will be back again.
This was my first visit with Dr. Palep and it was probably one of the best experiences at a doctor's office. She took the time to listen to all my concerns and questions. She is very knowledgeable and the service was excellent.
Dr. Palep is wonderful all around. Thorough, patient, kind and professional. I highly highly highly recommend!
Absolutely fantastic doctor. Can't recommend her highly enough.
A great caring physician. She goes above and beyond her duties.
I love Dr Palep because she treats her patients like they are human beings instead of like 'patients'. She's friendly, respectful, thorough, extremely kind and she generates a positive energy. I really wish every doctor I had was as wonderful as she is. I highly recommend her and this wonderful office.
Great! Knowledgeable, always listens, super nice.
dr. palep was very personable and efficient in diagnosing my issues. i was concerned when she didn't much time to examining my skin, but i have to say the acne treatment she prescribed is already working. the office is very clean and everyone is extremely professional and helpful.
I felt very well taken care of and advised!
She is very friendly, but couldn't resolve my scar problem. :(
I really enjoyed everything about this place -- really convenient location, Dr. Palep was great, and I was in and out in no time. The waiting area is super cute as well. Highly recommended!
Very knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommended.
Very friendly doc who took the time to explain everything to me in great detail. She even drew a diagram to help explain a procedure to me. Warm, caring and knowledgeable. Everything you'd what you'd want in a doctor.
Dr. Palep is fantastic. I've been searching for a good dermatologist in NYC for years, and feel I've finally found one in Dr. Palep. Her bedside manner is great, she listens, takes all concerns seriously, and is very knowledgeable. Her office is also very nice and calming, and everyone who works there is wonderful.
She is absolutely great!
Only about 10 mins waiting time. Dr. Palep is friendly, thorough, and patient. She is open to your questions, and answers them thoughtfully and appropriately. Highly recommend!
Very Professional! Impressive. I highly recommend her to Asian decent with mild to severe acne.
Office was emaculately clean and well put together, the staff was warm and welcoming, and the doctor was kind, careful and sensative to my expenses as I pay out of pocket. Look no further!
I was the first appt of the day and waited about 5 or so min (I was also there early). But staff is very nice and friendly, and not stuffy so the wait time is more enjoyable. Doctor was fantastic, really understands her patients and what they need. Understands that people are budgets and works with you on the best plan. Also, I had issues getting one of my prescription (my insurance was trying to not pay for it) but they helped resolve the problem without me getting too much into the details.
Had a wonderful experience with Dr. Palep. Her entire staff was friendly and helpful, and the office was so cute and super clean. Will definitely go back for any future skin issues.
her office is fabulous. Staff kind and warm, Dr. Palep is amazing. She took her time explaining to me an action plan for my issues, drew diagrams and was just amazing. Believe the hype, she is that great.
Dr Palep is great - very knowledgeable, honest, detailed-oriented, not to mention very polite and approachable. She answered all my questions with detailed information and lots of patient. Highly recommend her!
Loved Dr. Palep! Totally on board with her wanting to pursue an aggressive acne plan. I'm ready to be relieved of adult acne!
This was my second visit, and these are the only two visits I've ever had with a Dermatologist. Dr. Palep has put me at ease both times and generally made me feel comfortable. She explains things in terms that I understand, and is reachable by email should I have additional questions. The office is beautiful - it almost has a spa feeling in the waiting room. Dr. Palep was a few minutes late today, but that is completely understandable as we were hit with a snowstorm last night.
Very pleasing and professional manner. Dr. Palep carefully explained each step of the examination process, as well as the implications of the findings she observed.
Incredibly nice and warm, I definitely recommend her services!
Very thorough and caring physician. She took the time to listen and explain my condition and the treatment. Her staff is very welcoming and professional. I highly recomend her.
She was friendly and seemed to genuinely care about my problems, a rare trait among New York doctors. She immediately knew the causes of my problems and was quick to reassure me that there were easy solutions.
Dr Palep was very friendly and took the time to explain my options in detail. She's great!
Dr. Palep is truly a fantastic physician. The practice spares no attention to detail both technologically and aesthetically. As a provider, she goes above and beyond to make even a first time patient feel welcome and important. One of the best experiences I’ve had with any physician; I will be a lifelong patient.
She was absolutely amazing- very sweet, reassuring and helpful.
Dr. Palep was great! She made me feel comfortable, she answered all of my questions thoroughly, and provided the care and attention every patient deserves! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great dermatologist!
She was amazing! I'm so pleased! The place is classy, professional and relaxing! My kind of place!
This was probably the best appointment I've ever had with any doctor. Dr. Palep was so informative and thorough, and took her the time to really answer all of my questions. I didn't feel rushed at all. I can't recommend her highly enough! Not to mention that the office itself is beautiful.
Couldn't have been better. Dr. Palep was thorough, patient and very genuine. Highly recommend.
Dr. Palep is thorough and sets up a comfortable atmosphere for treatments. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
Dr. Palep was very kind and helpful. The office was hot but it was cold outside. I would go back every day.
I saw Dr. Palep a few times, over a year ago, until she stopped taking HMO this year. The entire office was pristine and the receptionists are always pleasant. I wish she still accepted my insurance!
Very attentive. She took time to explain conditions and treatment options without rushing me out of the office.
Without exaggeration, one of the best doctors I've visited. Professional, caring, patient, and honest. Would highly recommend.
I can honestly say I could not be happier about my experience, and I generally cannot stand doctors (and their associated egos and lack of care). You can tell she really, really cares. And her level of knowledge is through the roof. Best Dr vist I personally have ever had. Keep up the good work doc, so glad I found you.
The first dermatologist in New York that doesn't try to upsell you services and products that you don't need/may not be the best option for you. Amazing bedside manner, takes the time to listen to your concerns and develops a thoughtful and thorough plan of action. Looking forward to my next appointment.
My experience with Dr. Palep was fantastic! Start to finish, my time at the office was amazing. Great facilities and ammenities, friendly receptionist, prompt and caring service. I was in and out in 30 minutes (and that included a small procedure). I highly recommend this office.
Dr Palep diagnosed the issue immediately and offered multiple methods of treatment without pressuring me to go one way or the other. I feel more knowledgable having had my questions answered.
Really enjoyed how informative Dr. Palep was. She really took the time to explain everything to me.
Dr Palep was more than anyone could ask for in a doctor. She makes you instantly comfortable and there is really nothing you can't talk about with her. Smart and funny. I've been to about a dozen dermatologists in my life and this is the first one that didn't try to sell me products. She is nothing short of amazing. I only wish she could be my primary care physician!
"She was very thoughtful and explained everthing where it was easy to understand. It was like talking to a close friend, and not a doctor who just wants your money and to move on to the next paying patient."
I'm obsessed with her! I just visited her for the first time after leaving two other dermatologists and left so happy and impressed. The office is beautiful, the wait wasn't long, she wasn't rushed at all and took the time to talk to me about my condition (which she diagnosed as soon as walking in the room). She explained things in such a caring way and gave me her email and told me not to hesitate to call her if things didn't clear up (sooo not a thing you are used to a doctor doing). I'm going back in 2 weeks!
She's wonderful. I would go to her for anything!
Great doctor - highly recommended!
Dr. Palep was an absolute delight. She is very personable, professional and thorough. I highly recommend her!
Very nice and personable. Great atmosphere in the office but the diagnosis seems a tiny bit rushed.
Dr Palep was very professional and gave a great overview of her initial dermatological evaluation philosophy and procedure, promptly conducted the exam and removed a "pesky" wart in a pristine and welcoming medical suite. Her medical assistant and receptionist were all delightful Very highly recommended!
Dr. Palep is absolutely fantastic. Thoroughly knowledgeable, very skilled, and thoroughly sweet and friendly.
She was very professional, friendly and confident in her diagnosis and treatments.
I was her patient at another facility in Flatiron and when I switched health insurances I was really bummed because she was not on my new one. Then I found her on ZocDoc and was soo excited! She is excellent. Very personable and really knows what she is talking about. She remembered me and was aware of the past medications she had given me. She is the best dermatologist I have ever been too!
She was spot on with diagnosis and incredibly pleasant.
Very pleasant, relaxed environment.
She is fantastic. I've never written a positive review of any medical professional, but I would recommend this office to anyone.
Dr. Palep was amazing. She was really kind and patient, put me at ease, answered all my questions and explained my condition and the way the medication she prescribed works. She was extremely honest and really took the time to come up with an individualized treatment for a fairly common condition like acne, that was appropriate for me. I have great confidence and trust in her professionalism and knowledge and I truely loved her personality. I e-mailed her the day after the consultation with a few questions and she replied promptly, answered my questions very thouroughly and what she suggested really worked. I couldn't be happier with my visit and the follow-up. I highly recommend Dr. Palep!
Totally professional -- extremely knowledgable. The office is managed flawlessly!
Dr. Palep is great! She's so nice, thoroughly listens to your concerns, and she does not push any sort of products or procedures on you. To add to that, her knowledge of dermatology is both reassuring as well as all-encompassing. Love her!
Overall the visit was excellent. The exam was very thorough. Dr.Palep listened to all my concerns and explained several different treatment options for my cystic acne. She took the time and careful consideration in outlining the right treatment program since I have near term plans to start a family and certain medications should be avoided. She is great to interact with - warm, approachable and friendly and she takes the time to explain the clinical side. I'm looking forward to seeing great results from my treatment program.
Dr. Palep is amazing! She is so nice and understanding and makes a frustrating situation much more bearable. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Palep is extremely nice. She spent time answering all my questions without acting like she was annoyed or in a hurry. Very kind and helpful. I will definitely keep her as my dermatologist.
Dr. Palep is wonderful. She is very warm, personable, and very knowledgeable. She takes the time to address all of your concerns and I never felt rushed. She encourages patients to email her with questions and responds promptly. The staff are very friendly as well. The office is nice as well.
Professional and Kind
Dr. Palep provided the perfect experience. I felt that she was very knowledgeable about my condition and interested in learning about me as a patient. She met every expectation and surpassed any hopes I had before coming for a visit. I highly recommend this practice and will tell all my friends!
Very warm and knowledgeable.
I think she is really helpful. Good at giving advice. And what I liked the most she tells you what cheaper drugstore products would be good for you. I really appreciate this as the price of prescriptions is crazy expensive. I have recommended her to all my friends. Simply a good doctor.
Dr. Palep was incredibly personable and made clear to me that she is accessible through e-mail to answer any follow up questions, a quality rarely found in this city! She has clearly invested a great deal in her practice, with a modern office which uses the latest technology. I felt very welcome and believe I am in good hands.
She is so amazing, so comforting, really makes a connection but manages to do it in a timely manner. I felt at ease with her right away.
I liked that she was very personable, knowledgeable, didn't push products and made me feel at ease with my condition and the hope for treatments. She also gave me a lot of reading material which I appreciated because I'd like to learn more about it!
Dr. Palep was incredible! I was in and out of the doctor's office in 30 minutes.
She was so helpful and answered all of my questions. I left the office feeling very reassured and hopeful. I had seen another dermatologist a month before and left the office in tears. I highly recommend her. She is the only dermatologist I will see from now on.
The office was clean and beautifully decorated. It was an enjoyable experience.
Attentive, informative and amazing as usual!
More than nice!
It is a beautifully designed office: All white swank modern with frosted glass windows, white leather claw couch and chairs, and chandelier. Very polite and helpful staff that make your visit seamless. Dr. Palep is a very thorough, knowledgeable, personable doctor that doesn't just rush you through. I've had a difficult time finding doctors/doctors offices I like in the city, so spring st derm is quite a breath of fresh air!
Dr. Palep was very helpful and listened carefully to all of my concerns. When I had an allergic reaction to one of my medications, she responded very quickly to my email even though it was a Sunday.
great facility, great people. highly recommended
Dr. Palep was extremely nice and very thorough. She listened to everything I had to say and provided a sensible treatment plan. She was easy to talk to, and said I could email her regarding any additional questions and concerns.
When I read the reviews before booking an appointment, I thought they must have been written by friends and family members. I risked it and booked anyway because of convenience. She was great. I've tried the top "famous" dermatologists for the latest cosmetic work and I'd recommend Dr. Palep over all of them. You won't be sorry. All round positive experience.
This women is so sweet! Very nice! BUT my problems with my skin did not improve and follow-ups became a joke! 10 minutes tops to tell me keep doing the same thing recommend the last time. I don't plan to go back
Phenomenal. Fantastic hours, very knowledgeable, and she's incredibly nice. Was willing to stay and answer any and all questions. Definitely recommend.
Key Words: Comfortable environment, Professional, Friendly, Relaxing experience
Dr. Palep is not only extremely professional and competent, she is also very communicative, receptive and understanding. She did not place any filters on our consultation and made sure I knew everything I needed to have peace of mind. Plus, there are cookies and coffee in her lobby :)
Dr. Palep was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and patient, taking lots of time to explain things and answer questions.
Everyone I encountered from the receptionist to the doctor's assistant to the Doctor was extremely friendly, very personable and professional. The office is very clean and has a relaxing atmosphere. Dr. Palep is very knowledgeable in her craft. She's extremely helpful and a genuinely sweet person. Although I was pretty nervous about my procedure, Dr. Palep and her assistant was helpful in putting me at ease (her assistant even held my hand through the process). I really enjoyed my visit, very glad I came and I will be back.
Friendly and Efficient
Great Service! Highly Knowledgable doctor. Very Professional.
Friendly, warm and knowledgeable. The entire office is welcoming!
Dr. Palep is wonderful. I was seen about three minutes after I finished filling out my paperwork. The office staff was friendly and helpful and Dr. Palep was generous with her time and talents. It had been a while since I had seen a dermatologist, so I went in with a laundry list of questions and concerns. She addressed and resolved my concerns in under an hour. I scheduled a follow up appointment and look forward to recommending her to all my friends.
She's great! A very kind and knowledgeable doctor. Her staff is great too. I recommend her highly.
Great!! Extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I could not ask for more in a physician.
Dr.Palep is an amazing doctor. I am not the type who writes reviews but she deserves the credit. I have dealt with dermatologists for about 8 years and it seems like she's really there to help unlike many other doctors i've visited who have a full waiting room and take 5 minutes to see you.She took her time with me. I am really hopeful that she will be the one to help me with a long term result for my acne problem. Highly recommended.
Possibly the best experience I've had with a doctor. The staff was courteous, the office was sleek and clean and Dr. Palep was extremely helpful. I'd definitely recommend.
Just how fab, smart & professional is Dr. Palep? Lets just say I debated writing this even at all. Not because she isn't those things--but because she's all those things and more. I selfishly fear that as more people do visit her at Spring Street Dermatology, her awesome availability may soon disappear. BUT I believe in good karma, and this woman deserves it. She knows her stuff. She and her staff took time to make a nervous, clueless guy like me feel comfortable. So if U live in the east village/noho/soho area and have any skin issues, I'd def stop procrastinating and call Dr. Palep. BTW, I'm a 31yo gwm who is being treated for for acne, hyperhydrosis and laser back hair removal.
I haven't visited the dermatologist for over 5 years, I don't even have a physician. The visit was totally painless which is important for me. I got my appointment the same day, the office was totally computerized, the Dr seemed pretty knowledgeable and thorough, but best of all I was in and out in a jiffy. It was a great experience.
After a horrible experience with an UES dermatologist recently, I was skeptical about being able to find someone in NY who would give me the same level of care I've enjoyed from my doctors in the past. Imagine my delight when Dr. Palep not only met my expectations, but exceeded them! She was such a comforting hug and has renewed my faith in health professionals :) The office is so beautiful and everyone there is so nice. I'm thrilled to say I have found my dermatologist and am even looking forward to my next visit.
Excellent first visit, very personable and knowledgeable. Could see her being my permanent dermatologist. Great front desk as well and hip high tech office.
great doc. would def recommend.
Relatively new office (both seem to have recently completed residencies). Very clean office, new equipment, efficient process, and good bedside manner. Saw me right away and was very knowledgeable and willing to spend the time required to address all my complaints. Amazing considering that I made the appoiu
Dr. Palep is a wonderful doctor. Very caring and attentive. My skin looks amazing since I have started seeing her.
Dr. Palep was very very helpful, warm and took the time listen. She was also able to save me money through my insurance and some rebates on medication. The office itself is very clean and the staff very welcoming.
Dr. Palep was very professional and personable. I am going to switch from my regular dermatologist to her.
Excellent doctor - takes the time to discuss any issues one may one. And is very patient and helpful.
Absolutely will be going back and recommending her to others. Very impressed. She even gave me her email if I had any followup questions.
nicest doctor ever!
Dr. Palep was by far one of the best doctors I've had in a very long time. Her attitude and communication was by far one of the best I've encountered. She made me feel at ease and she also explained every step of my skin regiment. Dr. Palep will definitely be my dermatologist for life, I would recommend her to anyone.
Extremely courteous, professional and friendly. Dr Palep's diagnosis was quick and informative and my condition has been successfully treated.
I had a pre-wedding "stress breakout" on my face. I went to Dr. Palep 4 days before my wedding and she suggested extractions, Neutrogena wash and antibiotics. I was really anxious about the extractions b/c I thought it might do more damage (plus I had never had extractions, so the thought of it freaked me out). Although, I was red for approximately 3 days (which she warned me about), it was worth it bc my skin looked great for my wedding! Dr. Palep once again has proven to be knowledgeable, patient and helpful. Thank you
Dr. Palep was very thorough and answered all of my questions/concerns, it was my first time at a dermatologists office and she was very kind and helpful in explaining things.
she was great - very thorough and attentive, as well as knowledgeable.
There was no wait time and all of the staff were very friendly. Dr. Palep was not rushed like many doctors are and took the time to address all of my questions and concerns.
Love, love Dr. Palep. She's a fabulous medical and cosmetic dermatologist. Beautiful offices, painless procedures (she makes her own numbing cream and it's excellent!). Will visit her often to keep skin healthy and glowing :)
She was nice.
very professional and knowledgeable; also very caring and listens to pt attentively; the receptionist is also very nice and the office itself is appealing
I had a great experience! The rooms were so nicely decorated, I felt completely comfortable and trusted them right away. Dr. Palep was kind and explained everything in detail. She was quick to write me prescriptions based on what she saw. I did not have to wait and everyone was very kind. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a dermatologist.
I made sure to wait on this review until I had seen whether she really helped my acne, and boy she did! I decided to do only external treatments, which have probably been a bit more painful than just going for the antibiotic would've been, but regardless my skin has gotten so much better! I used to be blanketed with acne, which is now gone. I still have redness (probably because I waited so long before seeing her) but she said this will go away within a year as well. She's also very sweet and the office appears more like a spa than an office.
Loved her! Great office, super nice people
Dr. Palep is absolutely wonderful! She was extremely kind and attentive, which made me have confidence in her and her ability. I felt comfortable speaking with her about all of my questions and concerns. I was so happy to meet her and I am looking forward to going back! She is by far the best dermatologist I've ever had.
Dr. Palep was compassionate and knowledgeable about my complaints, which helped put me at ease. I look forward to having her as a long term dermatologist. And, her office lends to a feeling of comfort, as it is not your typical "white walled and stuffy" medical suite.
Dr. Palep is a wonderful dermatologist. I've been seeing her for 6 months. She listens to patient concerns and is always upfront about what to expect from different dermatological treatments. I wouldn't trust my skin to anyone else.
She is wonderful, both knowledgeable and empathetic. I will definitely recommend her and go back and see her!
Dr. Palep is kind and considerate. I always feel very comfortable in her office.
I felt very comfortable working with Dr. Palep. She was patient and informative about the various conditions that I presented with (laser hair removal and brittle nails). The Administrative Assistant was friendly and helpful about providing a letter for my work. The office was well kept and beautifully decorated, which is quite a rarity and a luxury when visiting a doctors office. I arrived 15 minutes early and she saw me right at our scheduled time.
I don't usually like going to see any doctor but from the moment I stepped into the office, I was made to feel welcome. The appointment was thorough and never rushed. All my questions were answered thoughtfully. I definitely will be recommending her to all my friends.
Copied from my review on Yelp found here - http://www.yelp.com/biz/spring-street-dermatology-manhattan#hrid:QG7avxvyZs5rq3UcNapDUA/src:self ***** A new practice nestled in the center of SoHo, Spring Street Dermatology is just like me - practically perfect in every way. (*wink*) Seriously, though, as much as one can like a visit to a doctor's office, I liked my visit here. The offices are new and well-located. The decor is tasteful and modern with white leather seating, fresh flower arrangements, a crystal chandelier, large mirrors and exposed brick - very nice. They are also located on the top floor of the building (elevator, thankfully), so the exam rooms all have skylights, which is pretty fantastic because they provide ample natural light. If you saw my immediately previous review, I booked this appointment through ZocDoc, which is itself a wonderful service. As you can see, they have Saturday appointments, which is also in and of itself a miracle. Today I saw Dr. Palep, a youthful woman who is incredibly friendly, easy to talk to, and completely understanding of my concerns for having to pay big $$$ for prescriptions. Oh, and in terms of diagnosis, apparently I didn't get enough of the zit lifestyle when I was a teenager because it appears I may now be suffering from hormonal acne. OH JOY. Anyway, Dr. Palep was super nice and explained that there can unfortunately be adult onset of hormonal acne at basically any time. She also gave me a TON of samples to use (instead of writing me an Rx and having to pay for it), so now I have something to combat these suckers. I made a follow up appointment with her to see how this regimen turns out (and to get more samples!), and she will also do a full body check at that time, too. I really liked this practice and Dr. Palep. They offer beverages in the lobby/waiting area, the receptionist is friendly, and the waiting room and exam rooms appeal to my sense of the aesthetic. I felt that maybe the assistant could use a little more training...I felt like she didn't quite understand what I was saying when I said I had an allergy to sulfa (she instead wrote down "sulfur"). Also, when she asked if I had a history of medical problems and I said "it depends on what you define as a "problem,"" she pretty much gave me a blank stare. I explained that I didn't know if she wanted a complete medical history (e.g., I once had an allergic reaction to this and this lotion) or only something big (e.g., I had melanoma). As this is a new practice, maybe ease with this type of interaction will come with practice. Regardless, because of the personal attention paid to me by Dr. Palep, I didn't think the assistant contact was all that necessary anyway, so I'm not overly bothered by that initial interaction. I ended up arriving around 11:10 for my 11:15 appointment. I had already printed out and completed the new patient form available on their website. I was in an exam room by 11:20 and speaking with the assistant at that time, and then I only had to wait til maybe 11:30/11:35 to see Dr. Palep. Overall, considering the wait time epidemic that is common in Manhattan, I'm happy with the efficiency here. I recommend this practice and Dr. Palep (and the use of ZocDoc to book the appointment!). I'll be back.
highly recommend dr. palep. one of the best MDs I have met in years!!
Dr. Palep was so personable and efficient. I recommend her 100% Beautiful and immaculate office as well!
