I came in as a new patient and waited no longer than 5 minutes. Dr. Lodha was able to give me my diagnosis and treat me instantly. And I saw results in under 24 hours.

Dr. Lodha is a remarkable doctor. Not only is he an expert in dermatology, but he also treats patients with care and concern, always taking the time to answer questions. Being PA residents, we make the journey to NY because he is that good.

5 minute session. Billed for services/treatments I don't recognize. Session was revolved around just prescribing as many medications as possible versus understanding cause and working on prevention.

Dr. Lohda is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. For example, he noticed my thyroid surgery scar and inquired because one type of thyroid cancer is connected with skin cancer. He has a friendly bedside manner and is very concerned for the patient's comfort.

Wait time wasn't bad and staff was really friendly. Dr. Lohda acted more like he was trying to sell me something than hear about my problem. He talked over me, seemed to come to a pretty hasty conclusion, and then offered for me to buy his body wash he creates that's "cheaper than Sephora". I'm sure he's a smart guy but he came off like a salesperson.

I was really disappointed by my experience with Dr. Lodha (especially based on the positive reviews). He spent 5 minutes with me, didn't even look at the area I was having issues with, and rattled off four different prescriptions. I had no time to ask questions or explain my symptoms.

Dr. Lodha is very knowledgeable and imparts his knowledge in an affable and unpretentious way. He is patient, listens well and seems genuinely interested. Everyone in Dr. Lodha's office is pleasant as well. All and all it was a refreshing medical office experience is unusual to find these days. My husband also consulted with Dr. Lodha; he rarely likes doctors and had only positive comments about Dr. Lodha and his staff, as well. We are happy to have found Dr. Lodha!

I visited Dr Lodha for the first time a little more than a year ago and today had a mirror experience. Dr Lodha is one of the most professional, honest, and genuine doctors I've encountered. I referred him to multiple colleagues immediately while raving about the super positive experience I had at his office once again. I only feel compelled to leave reviews when the experience is extremely exceptional or the opposite. Dr Lodha saw me immediately, diagnosed my concern immediatel with the utmost confidence and reassurance. It's just a few hours later and I've already experienced immediate results. My colleagues even commented on the immediate and positive impact. Thank you Dr Lodha, see you soon.

Did not wait long at all, in the waiting room or in the exam room. I didn't even get to finish taking my makeup off before Dr Lodha came in. He is so nice, knowledgable, and got right to the point. It was such a relief to not only have someone take care of the issues right away, but seemed to actually care about my results. Also, very accommodating to insurances and pricing of prescriptions. Looking forward to my next visit.

Dr Lodha is one of the BEST dermatologists that I have visited. As soon as you enter Pura dermatology you immideatly get greeted by his lovely staff, the wait time is almost non existent. The doctor is extremely knowledgable, and will answer all of your questions and will find the right individual treatment for you. All of my visits have been extremely pleasant. Can not say enough great things about Saurabh Lodha, I am just glad that I had finally found my go to dermatologist. Thank you Dr Lodha again!

Dr Lodha is clearly a great doctor from what I can tell. I had a lot of questions for him, and I wish I'd had a chance to get a little more in depth discussing them (I'm pale skinned and it had been a couple of years since my last derm appt). However, he did help me with everything I needed, and I'll continue to see him!

Great doctor, but felt rushed in the appointment. Spoke with the office a few times and they were slow to get back to me. Additionally, felt like it was an inconvenience to ask questions about treatment. Overall, effective doctor and treatment plan for my face, but not the friendliest service.
