This guy must have been an actor or took acting classes. He is as fake as they come! Polite with me as a patient and slaps a nice smile on it. He is rehearsed and his visits are fast as ifhe's timing himself—not genuine experience at all. He wanted to catch an attitude when I kept interrupting him during one of the visits. He needs to realize that being an MD is still a service job. It’s not about you. It’s about me—the patient.

Dr. Lodha diagnosed my melanoma a few years ago and I couldn't be more grateful for how comforting he was through the process. Thankfully, it was caught early, and I couldn't recommend him more!

Dr. Lodha did not seem to have a whole lot of time for me, as he was clearly impatient when I asked him to repeat some of the steps in treating my skin condition. I guess I was unprepared in nothaving a pen and paper? Luckily his assistant was there, to write some of the details down after they were repeated. I will find someone else in the future.

The doctor was great. Very attentive and knew what he was talking about. He correctly diagnosed a skin condition as symptomatic of a virus instead of psoriasis, which saved me a huge amount of trouble. Thank you!

Really impressed! My first appointment with Dr.Lodha was today at 11:00 AM, I am back in my office writing this review at 11:40 AM. The front office staff was quick, pleasant and efficient. I was seen by the doctor's assistant firstto ask about the reason for my visit and then quickly seen by the doctor who seemed knowledgeable regarding my issue and also answered a ton of questions I had for him regarding skincare, products and additional procedures such as lasers, etc.

I visited due to the rash all over my upper body. Doctor checked the problems, asked questions and prescribed some medication for two days. He then said the office will call in two days to check the symptoms and if it’snot getting better, I’d need to take stronger medication. At the end of the visit, he told me that he can fix my acne problem which I wasn’t there for. His staff right away tried to schedule me for that and I told her that I’ll schedule after the rash problem is solved. Two days after the visit, the staff called to ask about symptoms and if I’d like to schedule for the acne. I didn’t schedule and told her that my symptoms didn’t get worse but not so much better either. She said she’ll talk to the doctor and call me back. I waited for hours and called the office. The front desk said the staff was busy and will call. Waited again and nothing. Called another three times but got the same answer. It was Friday afternoon and I was worried about the whole weekend without any instructions. I called again and no one picked up and the office was closed. I didn’t know what to do and had no other offices to visit. Monday morning, I called them again and finally got a hold of the staff and doctor. They apologized but it was already too late. Leaving a patient without any instruction for the whole weekend was so unprofessional. It seems like they didn’t care about my rash. they were just interested in making me come back for acne treatment. Very disappointing and lack of professionalism. I would never trust this doctor again nor go back for any treatment.

He was very sweet, I literally started shedding tears, because it’s hard to be open about your insecurities and he was not uncomfortable at all . He was honest and very hopeful of my outcome at the end of my treatment.I’m very hopeful he can find the best solution for me.

Office needs to integrate better w/ Zocdoc. Very annoying that I had to fill out a whole ream of physical forms, which the receptionist then typed into the computer? Puzzling waste of time all around. All this data was already inmy Zocdoc profile, which I used to make the appointment. Once paperwork was done, everything was fine.

This was my first appointment with Dr Lodha and Pura Dermatolgy was Great. The staff is really friendly and I had overall good feeling about the faculty. Dr. Lodha bedside manner is excellent. He takes the time to listen to yourconcerns and really explain to you the situation. Dr. Lodha also gave me some homework on better skin care, which was a big plus for me. I highly recommend Dr. Saurabh Lodha and Pura Dermatolgy.
