This is a great office. Had my first visit here today and the front desk personnel were so professional and friendly! The office is decorated beautifully and have such high-end design features that are just amazing. I didn’t wait any timefor my appointment, and with the help of ZocDoc, had very little paperwork to fill out once I got to the office because I did it all online. The doctor was so friendly, patient, professional and informative. One of the few times I can say I actually truly enjoyed a Doctor visit!!!

Dr. Banker is amazing. She diagnosed my issues and was incredibly proactive about my treatment. I have never felt as comfortable and respected by a doctor as I have with her. She remembered so much about me personally from appointment toappointment, I was shocked. I'm actually quite sad that I had to move and lose her as my dermatologist. If you need a dermatologist, go see Dr. Banker in her beautiful new office!

My experience at Dr. Banker's office was a great one. When I arrived I was immediately greeted by the front desk receptionist who I had previously talked with on the phone to confirm my appointment. The office is beautiful, clean, andappeared up to date with the latest technology. My wait time was minimal, as soon as I was finished completing one form I was immediately taken in. Dr. Banker is one of the kindest doctors I have ever been seen. She was extremely professional, intelligent and made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend her to anyone and will definitely be coming back

This is is my first dermatologist visit and I have to say it was great. The main reason for my visit was the increasing amount of mole's on my body and wanted to make sure that none of them are problematic.The Dr was so friendly, professional, knowledgeable and always provided constant feedback during the whole check up. The Dr made me feel at ease and it was a such a sigh of relief when I walked out of the checkup. I was also asked constantly if I have any more questions or concerns which was reassuring since it felt like you have a doctor who truly cares for a patients wellbeing. Overall, I would highly recommend To visit Dr. Banker of you need to go to a dermatologist. Being a techie, one thing I would like to add is, the fact that zocdoc info is actually used by the doctors office- so the time you spend at the office for paperwork is very less if you had everything filled out on zocdoc. Also, the patient portal provides access to the notes from the visit and any additional information. Kudos to the next generation of doctors like dr. Banker who use technology to make this whole process seamless.
