The appointment lasted about 3 minutes. Doctor read off my paperwork that I was there for acne, and prescribed several medications without even giving me a chance to explain any symptoms or say anything at all about what I’ve been feeling.Said to come back in a month and that was all, absolutely no personalization to my specific issues.

Doctor was very nice indeed. Told me loads of stuff ( get him to write it down if you are like me - no memory ) Gave me some ideas what to use for protection in the sun while running. Suggestedtheir products but not pushy sell at all ( I took some samples ) Overall I was impressed. Room was a tad cold but I was over tired so maybe that’s why I felt it!

The assistants were very unprofessional and unprepared. Equipment wasn't working. The doctor is nice but young and I ended up at another dermatologist because he couldn't fix my problem. I've also never had a doctor look at my nipples duringa mole check. No online payment portal. He didn't go over the cost before treating me and I ended up with a big bill for zero results.

Dr. Lodha was in and out of my room in 5 minutes. Good if you're in a rush but he was throwing a lot of information my way in such a short period of time, I could barely remember any. Hedidn't give me any written details, so I've now forgotten my diagnosis (some long word starting with a 'p'). Additionally, some man entered with Dr. Lodha and he never explained who he was or if I was okay with having someone else in the room. Other than that, Dr. Lodha was very nice and friendly as were both receptionists. The waiting room is very pleasant stocked with tons of magazines. You probably won't get a chance to look at them, though, because you barely have to wait.

The staff was really pleasant and the facility was modern and clean. Dr. Lodha was also nice and seemed knowledgeable about his profession so there wasn't anything in particular that I didn't like about him. The reason for the lower scoreis, I felt rushed, he was quick to talk and slow to listen (which maybe he was really busy that day), he didn't ask many probing questions to further understand why I was there, and the entire experience felt slightly cold and uninviting. Mostly because I felt that I was rushed in and out so they could get to the next patient. I was in for a annual skin check-up. So overall, maybe I had a bad experience because the office was having a bad day or behind schedule but in my mind, new customers should be a high priority since I mentioned that I was looking for a new dermatologist.
