Great experience! I was seen very fast (although I hadn't been able to fill out the paperwork ahead of time); the staff and doctor were extremely nice. Dr Palep took extra time and care to make sure I understood the different forms of skin cancer and could look out for them myself. She was also patient with my questions and took time to discuss other treatment options. Would recommend her anytime!

Waiting on a doctor is to be expected but I was taken into the room within 5 minutes of my appointment time. All of my prep work (Questions re: history) were taken just in time for the doctor to come in 10 minutes after my appt. time. Dr. Palep has a wonderful bedside manner and was really patient in explaining what was going on. I did not feel rushed and I genuinely felt like she cared about what happened after I left the office. Her confidence in her delivery left me feeling extremely comfortable with her diagnosis. The office itself was extremely clean and convenient to get to. For my first dermatology appointment, I couldn't be happier.

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 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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
