Dr Lodha is a pleasure to deal with. From his initial sincere greeting, through the entire consultation with you, he is patient, kind, informative and thorough. He examined me from head to toe, addressed and treated all my troubled spots, refilled my prescriptions and had mvr on my way within 20-25 min.

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. Suggested their 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!

Dr. Lodha was great, made sure I understood medications that he was prescribing. Bedside manner was gentle and reassuring, especially when about to make an injection or incision- explains slight pain threshold, took the worry out of the visit. The receptionist were kind and well spoken, reflects the the doctor. Highly recommend!!!

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 during a 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.

I don' usually write reviews online but I can tell you that Dr. Saurabh Lodha is the best dermatologist I have seen. Very accurate in his diagnostic and will give you the best treatment for your concern. I will defiantly come back again without a single hesitation. Thank you Doc.

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. He didn'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 score is, 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.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lodha. All around great doctor. Very intelligent and caring doc. Concerned about results, not about dollar bills. What stood out the most to me was his approach. Instead of stating what was going to happen next, he would lay out the options that I had as a patient and then offer his professional advice on how to proceed. Staff is amazing as well, all around A+!
