Every aspect was exceptional. Highly recommended
Very attentive and caring physician. Office staff are also very on top of things and extremely helpful!
They are more than excellent.
Great experience with this doctor and his team. The front desk staff is super nice and professional. The doctor is very knowledgeable, professional and also friendly. He took his time to listen to me and my needs and gave me a treatment that best worked for me. Not many doctors will take their time to listen to patients.
Dr Lodha was amazing, super nice, very funny, and helped me out with my skin. He's great, I highly recommend.
Very personable, efficient, and helpful. Highly recommended.
Seemed knowledgeable and helpful but appointment was very rushed and I felt like I had to interrupt to be heard.
Awesome experience. Friendly staff, didn't wait long and Dr Lodha is incredible.
Verify friendly and efficient.
Dr. Saurabh is kind, personable and thorough. All the qualities you want in a physician.
the experience was second to none very quick efficient would recommend to everyone. so helpful and honest truly amazing
The best dermatologist! Gentle, knowledgeable, doesn’t rush through the session. Love him!
Dr. Lodha is fantastic! Didnt have to wait which was great! He was very helpful and informative. I had a small mole removed from my leg, the whole thing was taken care of in a short time. I wish all my doctors were that efficent and friendly. Many thanks to Dr. Lodha.
He is a cosmetic dermatologist. If you have real skin issues, please go see a medical dermatologist for your answers.
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.
Excellent from front desk staff to Dr. Lodha himself. Highly recommend.
I highly recommend Dr.Lodha. He was absolutely amazing!!! If your looking for the perfect dermatolgist who cares about his patients and you want excellent results schedule an appt now!!! Look no further!!!
Pleasant experience. Highly recommend.
Dr. Lodha was knowledgable, had excellent bedside manner and hes also a delight to look at. Highly recommend 11/10
Professional, clear communication, positive, clean office, good staff. Excellent overall.
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.
Very welcoming and helped to do proper diagnosis.
Dr. Lodha is very nice but always seems to be in a rush. A few times now I have had to call his attention to things that he should be catching. I originally picked him due to his proximity to my office, but am now going elsewhere.
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.
I was able to schedule an appointment right away. The receptionist was very friendly & registration quick. I was seen by the doctor in 15 minutes and he was friendly, knowledgeable & treated my skin rash right away. I will be returning again to Dr Lodha and would highly reccomend his office.
He is really amazing. Very knowledgeably and friendly. Highly recommended.
Dr.Lodha is awesome ! He is extremely informative and takes the time to educate his patients. He is also very kind and personable. I still go to him even though I changed work locations because I feel well taken care of.
He was great he answered all my questions concerns and knew what I needed right away
I love my Doc. He's awesome. Thank you !!!!
Very professional and a good doctor.
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.
One of the best doctor experiences I've ever had.
Very professional, friendly and reassuring. Just what you want from a doctor.
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.
I had very pleasant first visit with Dr. Lodha. He is very efficient and friendly. He eased my concerns and treated my condition really fast. Plus the office is nice and clean. The receptionist is very nice and helpful in getting in my referral. Will go for check-up soon!
Very positive first visit, absolutely lovely doctor and very attentive, helpful and professional! Good diagnosis of my issue and suggested treatment that fit my needs and budget.
Excellent experience .everybody is great from receptionist to the doctor
A bit rushed.
I thought it was very informative. He was a bit quick but got his point across and answered all questions.
Very efficient, nice and clear!
Great visit. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
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.
Great! Quick, thorough, painless experience
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.
The office was quite professional. The doctor was knowledgeable and put me at ease. This was my first visit with a dermatologist. I would definitely recommend him to my peers.
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 great. He's friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
Excellent experience. Doctor Lodha is thorough and really gets you in and out! He knew exactly what my issues were upon first visit just by looking at me!
Dr. Lodha is very friendly and helpful. The receptionists are very nice as well. I highly recommend!
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.
He was very thorough & honest. He didn't waste my time trying to sugar coat or upsell me, which I appreciate. It was also very easy to get an appointment.
Dr. Lodha is a very knowledgeable Doctor who is easy to talk to and comfortable to be around. I'm very happy to find a dermatologist as caring and astute as him.
Dr. is very brief and to the point. The office is very friendly and the environment is nice.
Great staff and great doctor. Whenever I went to the clinic, Dr. Lodha explained logically, clearly, and nicely. Just loved it. Thank you so much!
Not only is he extremely good looking, he's quite informative and directs one to take responsibility in their skin cancer education, as well as very nice. His assistant was friendly and had a great personality!
best doctor ever I've been to, seriously. Will recommend to anyone and all my friends who are concerned with skin cancer/mole treatment etc.
Everyone in the office is warm and welcoming. Dr. Lodha always makes my son feel comfortable and clearly explains the best treatment. Dr. Lodha must be exceptional because as a Pennsylvania resident, I wouldn't take the journey to NYC to receive his care.
He was great ! By professional and nice
As good as it could have been
Such a great doctor! Willing to take time to answer and questions. Extremely knowledgeable about skin concerns. I highly recommend.
Dr. Lodha is a whip-smart specialist that was able to quickly but thoroughly address all my issues and questions. Looks like a real pro. Will definitely recommend.
My new go-to dermatologist. I went in for a preventative care appointment and with a question about a suspicious blemish, and he was able to provide me with a complete skin regimen as well as to remove the blemish within 30 minutes. He was thorough and compassionate, and walked me through every element step-by-step so I was comfortable and confident. Excellent experience.
Friendly staff and clean facilities. Dr. Lodha was really helpful!
Very rushed and does not allow patient to talk
Dr. Lodha was excellent. Very nice and was able to diagnose quickly and prescribe the right medication. He also worked with me to make sure I get the prescription that is cheaper under my insurance but is still just as effective.
Excellent service and everyone in the office was very polite.
Such a great service from the whole team!
Had a first rate experience. Great staff and physician, friendly but professional.
I was disappointed with Dr. Lodha's recommendation of an in-house wash priced twice as much as the pharmacy's, and containing the exact same ingredients, despite me also telling him that I had tried it before with no results.
Dr. Lodha and his staff are an amazing group of professionals. I always have a great and swift experience at their office. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great dermatologist!
Dr. Lodha was extremely professional, easy to see for a first time visitor, and was able to diagnose and treat me right away. I'm able to make appointments on my lunch during work days, so he's very efficient! Very helpful, understanding and personable.
Dr. Lodha is wonderful. Incredibly informative and very kind. He answers all of your questions and makes great recommendations. I'm thrilled to have have found a genuinely great and talented Dermo. Highly recommend.
Fantastic! Answered all my questions and didn't make me feel rushed. Office was clean and receptionists were friendly. Highly recommend.
Wonderful doctor ! Took his time, really examined my skin and skin issues. Gave me a regimen to stick to as well as recommend Vitamins I could use to help. Booked my second appointment in 2 weeks for my follow up ! Service was awesome ! Thanks Dr. Lodha
Amazing! Dr. Lodha & the pura dermatology staff are so friendly, respectful, and helpful. Dr. Lodha answered all of my questions and explained my treatment plan very clearly. Highly recommend!
Knowledgeable, genuine, seemingly kind and most importantly, efficient and thorough. Terrific doctor.
burnt my face with overdose of retinol, whole face swollen up with unbearable dryness, itchyness and irritation. doc gave me prescription and really made me feel reassured somehow. front desk lady not so welcoming.
He is the real deal and I can't wait for the next visit. I feel like he really cares about my skin and wants to make a difference. A1!
Very kind. Puts patients at ease. Answers all questions, educates you.
My appointment with Dr. Saurabh Lodha was great. He actually took the time to look at me and explain to me what was going on and the next steps we would take to avoid my skin issues going forward. I have been to MANY dermatologists in my life and I must say I've never been treated with such care and attention as today. Thank you!
I would highly recommend Dr. Lodha! He seems very knowledgeable and thorough.
The doctor and his staff were extremely professional. He was very detailed!
Dr. Lodha started talking about prescription drugs before I even got a chance to ask questions and before he took a closer look at my skin. I wanted to talk about the problems and possible solutions with a professional but I felt like he just walked in, made some presumptions and tried to send me on my way. Whole visit was under 5 minutes. When I voiced my concern about using prescription drugs for the problem, he suggested I just try it and we could talk about other options if I didn't like it. I did not feel very heard or understood.
very attentive and helpful. Staff members were pleasant and informative. Provided samples of skin products which was also helpful at deciding the right products
Excellent. Highly recommended
Great Doctor! explains everything to you and makes you feel comfortable..highly recommended!
Very kind and down to earth doctor! Highly recommend.
Excellent experience! I would recommend to anyone looking for a Dermatologist.
Very caring and knowledgable. Takes time to explain everything you want to know.
The doctor saw me right away! He was super friendly and very helpful, will definitely be back!
Excellent service, diagnosis and remedy
Very professional courteous. Would certainly recommend.
Dr. Lodha was very professional and also informative. I came for a specific procedure but he was happy to give me a full skin screening, walking me through the steps along the way. This way I can be aware of any potential problems in the future. He also recommended some great, inexpensive products I can use. Very helpful!
Dr Lodha was very friendly, took time to answer all my questions and to make sure I was comfortable with the treatment he was recommending. He didn't try to push any products or procedures on me. The staff was very nice too!
I was seen right away in this office, which looks very clean and new. The receptionist and the nurse were warm, welcoming and helpful. Dr. Lodha saw me quickly and diagnosed my problem, laid out treatment options, wrote my prescriptions and gave me free samples and instructions for a follow up visit, all in about 5 minutes! This was much appreciated, since I visited on my lunch hour from work. Dr. Lodha is very friendly and seems extremely knowledgeable and clearly cares about the health of his patients. There were no hard sells re: products. Furthermore, his own healthy skin is a walking advertisement for his practice. That's exactly what I'd hope for in a dermatologist!
For a first time patient, it was very quick! I would have liked the doctor to not make me feel so rushed. Hopefully, the basic plan of action will be effective to treat my condition.
I would not recommend based on bedside manner. Left his office very frustrated and with a prescription for an expensive face wash that I didn't even want.
I felt being rushed.
From the entrance, to the front desk, to the simplicity of the decor, the bathroom, the employees, and save the best for last the DOCTOR! Everyone was super amazing. I went in for my severe acne, scars ad discoloration. He planned out a 3 months treatment for me, prescribed me medications and also told me which makeup I should use. The front desk were awesome! The nurse was sweet and informative. This doctor is super adorable! He has a welcoming & willingly to help you face. (If that makes any sense). Definitely give him a shot! He is amazing. =)
The Doctor answered all my questions, and recommended treatment. He was friendly.
It was good. All my issues were addressed and I was satisfied.
Fantastic! He took his time and was very good at listens to my concerns and explaining things! I highly recommend him
Fabulous doctor. Very nice and thorough. Quick to be seen. Definitely highly, highly recommend.
Dr. Lodha was perfect. That might sound over the top but it is true. He was professional, informative, listened to what I had to say and answered all my questions. I simply could not be happier with his service.
Excellent visit, was pleased, will return.
I filled out my health forms on Zocdoc, and when I went in the receptionist had them printed out all I had to do was sign my name. I was taken into an examination room within a few minutes. The room itself was very clean and bright and the doctor was in to see me in less than 3 minutes. The exam itself was brief, he went over the issue I was seeing him for (rash) and explained what it is and the medication he was prescribing and asked if I had any other questions or concerns. Was very friendly
Went during weekday work hours. Waited less than 3 minutes after finishing filling out disclosure forms. Keep in mind this office will electronically send your prescription to the pharmacy you recommend. Can be a problem if you like having a paper prescription and researching prices at various pharmacies.
Everything about the visit went well and I could tell that the doctor was meticulous in executing the treatment he recommended for me.
Great bedside manner. The doctor really know his stuff. He answered all my questions and provided solutions to all my issues.
The doctor was very knowledgeable about my symptoms and was able to administer a remedy immediately. Great visit overall.
Really positive experience. Dr L was super friendly, informative, and made me feel comfortable asking questions. Great care.
Dr.Lodha is a a highly professional. Pleasant, very good manners. Resolved all my issues in seconds.
highly recommend him. visited 3 general practicioners and they all seemed more or less clueless about how to fix my issue. spent 20 minutes with Dr. Lodha, got a shot and a prescription and was literally cured within 2 days. The progress was almost unbelievable. Thanks doc!
I felt rushed, He didn't take time to explain things to me. I saw him for 5 mins and he was able to make a full assessment in that time, questionable. His staff tried to explain the next steps but weren't very helpful or detailed. I was just another number going through their doors. They failed to process my prescription and when they called to ask for a follow-up appointment. How can I come for a follow-up when then never sent through the prescriptions? When I finally got the prescriptions it didn't work. Same as when I went in. I will not be going back and looks like you would only receive great treatment if you are paying for it, not if you are covered by insurance. Find another doctor who actually cares.
Dr. Lodha was wonderful! The entire appointment was seamless and went so quickly (in a good way) and smoothly. He answered all my questions and was so incredibly polite! Would definitely recommend him! His assistant Sage was wonderful too!
First time meeting Doc ....seemed very knowledgeable and confident regarding my issue. I felt comfortable and will be going back for follow up visits. Highey recommend this office
Excellent experience. Nice office, no wait time, Dr and RN were both extremely friendly!
It was super quick!
The staff is quite pleasant and the doctor is very attentive to your needs.
Dr. Lodha seems very knowledgeable and interested in his patients' care. He takes time to answer questions.
Smart, Knew what he was doing. in and out.
Super efficient and lovely staff. I was in and out in less than an hour! Answered all my questions and concerns, and helped me feel better about my skin!
Wonderful Smart, informative, great communicator. All around great guy!!! My new permanent DR
I had a great appointment with Dr. Lodha. His front desk staff was friendly and though they were busy, did not leave me waiting - a rarity! The nurses were kind and Dr. Lodha was very thorough, but left me feeling relaxed throughout the process. I was put at ease by the entire office's professionalism. I would highly recommend.
Friendly staff. Excellent Doctor
Very nice staff. Dr Lodha was very helpful and extremely nice. I definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a dermatologists in NYC
Dr. Lodha was warm, comforting and kind. I'd highly recommend him.
Dr. Lodha was very friendly, and answered all the questions I had. I didn't feel rushed at all.
Very professional doctor, exellent listener, knowledgeble. The receptionist is very nice and friendly.very rare these days ....
Great experience. Dr. Lodha was very quick and efficient, while still being thorough and not appearing rushed. He also explained things very well and seemed extremely knowledgeable. Would recommend.
Such a great experience! Didn't wait any longer than 3 minutes and the doctor saw me right away. He was extremely professional, kind, and knowledgeable. Definitely will be coming here again!
The doctor was very good but kept me waiting 45 minutes
Doctor Lodha was very professional and has excellent bedside manner.
really liked his vibe and his promise to fix my skin, excited to go back and get further treatment from him.
Easy, quick, knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend!
Dr. Lodha was great! Very nice, professional and knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend him.
Visit felt a bit rushed, but I was very satisfied with what he did. He noticed something I didn't even come in for and treated it on the spot. I would go to this dermatologist again.
Knew and told me exactly what was wrong, prescribed me exactly what I needed and went into detail about what each drug did. Also took my tight budget into consideration when prescribing so I was able to drop drugs I didn't need and get the cheapest generics.
Dr. Lodha was very personable and thorough. He made recommendations that felt accessible and helpful. His medical assistant and other office staff were equally professional and warm. The wait time was completely reasonable and the space was comfortable.
Very professional. Sometimes I feel a dermatologist isn't interested in anything but patients who want expensive cosmetic treatments, but Dr. Lodha did not rush and took the time to do a full body scan, and gave me helpful information about checking moles, etc.
This it my first visit when Dr. Lodha, I suffer from HS and I had a severe cast so I found him on ZocDoc & I definitely think he will be my permanent dermatologist. The office is very conveniently located (well from my job), the office decor is very cute & quaint. Staff was friendly & welcoming. The doctor saw me within less than 5 mins being in the room. Upon getting there i waited no more than 10min. He knew exactly how to treat my case, he was swift with action and gave me great advice about new medicines. He was very knowable and asks me if I had any questions and just generally seems concerned about my well being.I've been to many dermatologist who gave me the run around but Dr. Lodha knows what he's doing. highly recommended!!!
Dr Lodha was efficient and thorough during my appointment, which I very much appreciated. I never felt rushed during the exam and everything was fully explained during the exam.
I was very impressed with my whole visit. He was very friendly and really easy to talk with. I would return and plan to tell friends.
He was thorough, knowledgeable and pleasant.
I have to say there's was no wait time, it was a beautiful office, everyone was super friendly and I was in and out! Highly recommend
This was my first time seeing Dr. Lodha, and I think he is one of the best doctors I've ever had. He has a warm, professional manner, is very skilled, and puts you at ease quickly. I especially appreciated that he took the time to explain the specifics of various hereditary skin conditions. He answered all my questions patiently and unlike many doctors, he didn't seem in a hurry to check the boxes and move on to the next patient. I'm happy to have found my regular dermatologist! His office is very clean, spacious, and well-run. His staff is friendly and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Lodha.
I was not impressed. DrLodha spent 5 min with me. I felt like the visit was rushed. He did not examine my skin, he just walked in and looked at me and said you have peri oral dermatitis. .look it up on the internet..You have to take oral medication. ....I have a few little bumps on my cheek..approximately 3 on each cheek..Oral medication seems a bit drastic to me...He also wanted to give me a facial injection...Which I deferred. I did research this condition and I saw very severe cases of it online... (oral medication may be a remedy for some of the cases I saw online)...I also read about natural homepathic remedies. ..So I will try and get rid of my bumps on my own. I will also get a second opinion.
Dr. Lodha and his team are consistently professional, helpful, and considerate! After less than satisfying visits with other dermatologists, I wouldn't go anywhere else!
He was very friendly and informative. He answered all my questions and I felt very reassured. He was extremely thorough. I highly recommend Dr. Lodha
He was extremely nice and friendly. He clearly explained things I can do myself to monitor my condition.
He was very professional and thorough... It was my first Dermatologist appointment in my life and I had some concerns. He made sure that I felt comfortable and spoke to me about each and every concern... I will definitely be recommending him to my friends and family members!
Dr. Lodha was great and very thorough! Great bedside manner and clear explanations of everything going on with my skin.
Dr. Saurabh Lodha was fantastic! Right away he addressed my issues and found a solution– I walked out of there very happy!
It was an easy visit.
Office is beautiful. Staff is beautiful. Very cold feeling. I was uncomfortable.
Dr. Lodge appears to be very knowledgable and friendly and his clinic is pleasant and well managed. This was a first visit, and within 10 minutes from my arrival I already saw the doctor. He is up to date on new treatments and is knowledgable about the cost of treatments and patient assistance options. I work with doctors and you won't believe how many of them have no idea about the cost of what they prescribe, or alternatively prescribe ancient treatments despite the availability of better options. Based on this experience I highly recommend Dr. Lodha!
My visit was a first-time visit and I was very impressed. The office was new and very clean, the receptionists were very friendly and helpful and Dr. Lodha made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions. I would definitely recommend and will continue to see Dr. Lodha!
Dr. Lodha took time to understand the problem and was able to quickly diagnose it. I highly recommend Dr. Lodha for any dermatology related problems.
Found the office and the doctor to be clean, courteous, and professional. Will return!
Excellent Spent adequate time and was very professional yet friendly
Very professional and courteous
I was extremely pleased how well Dr. Lodha explained everything and made sure i felt comfortable and left with all my questions answered. I will definitely keep on coming back!!
He was nice, and seemed down to earth unlike most Doctors like him.
Dr. Lodha was very quick and right to the point, but quite friendly and prescribed the medicine quickly. Downside is that he didn't even check what it was or how it looked during the appointment, it was more from what I had written in the forms he kind of knew, which is weird for a dermatologist to not examine the patient. Still, seemed to be knowledgeable
Excellent visit. Dr. Lodha took the time to explain the diagnosis and how he would like to address it. Procedure was done in office the same day. I'd highly recommend Dr. Lodha.
Dr. Lodha was amazing! VERY reassuring, straight forward and kind. I got a same day appointment, and my wait time in the waiting room was ZERO minutes. Seriously, one of the best doctor visits of my entire life.
My appointment with Dr. Lodha was really more with Dr. Lodha's assistant than with him. Once the assistant took my medical history, she went and got the doctor. As soon as he entered the room, and without speaking more than two or three generic pleasantry sentences to me, Dr. Lodha announced his plan for the treatment of my acne, which involved starting three prescriptions simultaneously. He was also very pushy about giving me facial injections for my acne. Further, the appointment was extremely short and rushed. This was my first appointment with a dermatologist, so I had a lot of questions about the active ingredients in what he was prescribing as well as the potential consequences of the injections. However, when I asked questions, the doctor became extremely defensive, saying things like, "didn't I already explain that?" He seemed interested only in treating the symptoms, not the patient, nor the potential cause of the problem. I had a very negative experience and would not see this doctor again, or recommend him to a friend.
I went in for a yearly check up and Dr. Lodha and his staff were great. Everyone was friendly and efficient. Office and exam room were spotless. I was also seen right away and didn't have to wait, which was greatly appreciated.
Dr. Lodha is fantastic. He listens, he confidently resolved issues that I was having with my skin [things that stumped other doctors for years!] and was wonderfully speedy. Could not recommend him enough.
gave a detailed description of treatment for my symptoms
Dr Lodha was very warm and welcoming, and quickly addressed my issues.
Very thorough and knew the problem right away. Explained everything in detail too.
There was no wait time and Dr. Lodha immediately identified my problems and worked to resolve it on the spot. He took care of some of my acne right then and there as well as cleared some of my white heads. Was a really efficient process and he made sure to explain everything very clearly. Would definitely recommend!
It was great he actually took he's time and answered all my questions and concerns.
Great experience, great doc.
This appointment was almost a year ago, but I highly recommend this dermatologist. Waited less than five minutes. Staff and doctor were very friendly, professional, and helpful. Next time I need a dermatologist in that area I'll be sure to go back.
Excellent! I feel confident he will be able to clear up my existing issue. Would definitely recommend.
Quick and efficient visit.
Very pleasant and informative. Good focus on educating the patient and attending to concerns.
Everyone was lovely in the office and Dr. Lodha
Dr. Lodha was extremely knowledgeable and listened to all of my concerns and issues, answering any questions I had. Appointment was quick but thorough which I appreciate since I am a doctor myself and had to move some patients around to run to this appointment. Going back for a follow up in 2 weeks and would definitely recommend him to others!
I did not feel comfortable with this doctor whatsoever. I felt very rushed. I had probably 4 pimples on my face, and I would truly and honestly not describe myself as someone who has bad acne. He immediately started sticking needles in my face and ended up prescribing me over 5 medications! It was quite shocking to have someone walk in the room and immediately start pricking you with needles. If I had severe acne I would understand, but I did not walk into that appointment expecting to leave with 5 prescriptions and feel so uncomfortable.
Dr. Lodha was professional, thorough ad kind. His staff was helpful and reassuring. Great experience.
This was my first visit at his office and I was very pleased. His office is clean, front desk and staff is friendly and Dr. Lodha is very pleasant and knowledgeable. The wait time was under 30 minutes because I pre-filled my ZocDoc information online. I would definitely recommend this facility.
Best dermatologist I've ever visited
Dr. Lodha had a great bedside manner. He was nice and upbeat. You can tell he really loves what he does.
Entire staff from reception through the doctor were incredibly friendly and professional. I was in and out in under 30 minutes, yet happy with the attention to detail and accommodation I was provided. Hands down, my best medical experience in NYC.
Top notch service and resolved my problems immediately. Highly recommend!
Despite the sudden time change in my appointment, I had a very good first impression of the clinic. The receptionists were very cordial. I was seen right away after finishing some paper work. Dr. Lodha is very informative and descriptive when explaining your options for treatments. He does speak very quickly though.
This was my first time going to a dermatologist and every employee who worked there was extremely friendly and helpful. I had never had any skin issues before so the doctor was very calm and reassuring in explaining everything thoroughly to me about my treatment. The assistant working with him was also extremely nice and gave me a lot of great tips. Overall the appointment was quick and painless and every employee there was so patient making the experience very pleasant.
Went for acne treatment, after 6 months, my face is completely clear. Dr. Lodha is very gentle and explained all the medications, processes. Made me fell very comfortable. Office is clean, nurses always friendly and welcoming.
Well, the office is clean and welcoming, staff is adorable, and the whole experience is relaxing. However, when I pay for a 30 min consultation, and get out after less than 5 minutes, to be told I have to book another appointment to have a general skin / moles screening, I find it a bit exaggerated. The whole thing could have been done with 1 appointment only.
Great office, with great people. I will only come here. Everyone was extremely friendly, there was no wait. I thought I would have to come back after the consultation, but everything was taken care of immediately on the day. Perfect doctor.
Very attentive and pleasant doctor.
He was not only very informative but seemed to really enjoy what he does. I recommend Dr. Lodha for your dermatology needs!
He met with me right on time and had great bedside manner. Everyone else in the office also had a great upbeat attitude.
Great doctor and office in general. Everyone from front desk and assistant were friendly and nice.
Dr. Lodha was courteous, articulate and professional.
I went to consult him regarding patches on my face. For a skin doctor he did not even see my face clearly and recommended his own line of products.I am sure they are great since he had fabulous skin himself but somehow I did not want to be used as a prop to buy products. Got a second opinion from another doctor later.
You can tell the doc really knows what he is doing. His staff was extremely nice and helpful and the wait is just a few minutes. All of my questions were answered even before I got the chance to ask them. Awesome doctor.
Wonderful doctor! Very knowledgable and attentive. Polite staff, almost no wait time. Highly recommended.
Dr Lodha is great, however good luck getting an email response from his admin team regarding simple matters like requesting a receipt.
I was seen by the doctor ahead of my scheduled appointment. The check-in process was a breeze. Dr. Lodha was courteous and efficient. I am happy with my visit.
I saw Dr, Lodha for a stubborn skin condition. There were quite a few people in the waiting room, but I was seen in a timely manner. Dr. Lodha is friendly, knowledgeable and charming. He explained that my treatment would be quite painful, but then he guided my breathing during the injections and I found it only slightly uncomfortable. I was given a prescription and detailed instructions for home care. I look forward to going back for an overall skin check.
very detailed and courteous. office was impeccably clean and staff very professional. made me feel at ease.
Professional, efficient, personable - both Doctor and staff. Can't ask for more than that.
it was pleasant. the beautiful staff was kind and helpful. Dr. Lodha was informative and explaining the details of the procedure and what to expect after. i would recommend to my friends. thanks!
It was quick and accurate, friendly staff I like the fact that he explained specifically what me and my son had, and the recommendations and the specifics regarding the medication, treatments and cure.
Dr. Lodha is wonderful, as is his staff. Highly recommended!
Was great, very informative and send very knowledgeable. Looking forward to better skin with his care.
Dr. Lodha is extremely intelligent and personable. He gave clear, concise answers to all my questions and provided a tremendous amount of information about the diagnosis. The office is very nice, the staff is courteous, there was no wait, and it's convenient to midtown, I'll definitely be coming back for any other dermatology needs.
The entire staff was very personable. The doctor was quick but thorough answer d all my questions. Yes I will return.
Dr. Lodha was really great. He gave me solution to my infection in ear lob really quickly and he also did a thorough examination for any moles in my body. He was good about answering all the questions I had and additionally the receptionists at the desk was very nice and polite. Even though I was late, they were very friendly through out my visit.
The doctor has good bedside manner. But I was not happy after the last visit and I wanted to return the acne treatment bottle he was selling at the office. But I never heard back from the staff after my questions on the return policy.
Answered all the questions I had and was very attentive. Will be back for future skin needs!
Dr. Lodha and his staff had the perfect mix of conversation and efficiency, things went very quickly but all relevant information was discussed in a manner that felt unrushed. Everyone was nice and pleasant to talk to. Highly recommend.
Dr. Lodha was great and very professional. There was a nurse assisting him/in the room, which was quite courteous while he checked me for my annual screening. Dr. Lodha also was very knowledgeable about preventative skin care/protection; something great to take away from the entire experience. Everyone working there was very friendly as well.
Great doc. Skin cleared up beautifully.
Very friendly staff. Very clean office environment. Dr. Lodha was very thorough with explaining everything. Prescription was sent to my local pharmacy and was ready for pickup when I arrived home.
Excellent service. Excellent doctor. I already have recommended Dr. Lodha to my family and my colleagues.
I was seen right away . Doctor was very knowledgeable , as I had seen other dermatologist who misdiagnosed me . I can already see a difference in skin . Will be going back .
If you're in the times square area, convenient location. Nice office, pleasant staff. Doc was quick, professional and kind. Can't ask for more.
I was having trouble with my skin and one day I got so fed up, I started looking for a same day appointment with a Doctor with good reviews. I found Dr. Lodha and he did not disappoint. He saw me right away, gave me some prescriptions for acne medication, a few cortisone injections for my problem areas and a few misc. things I had on my list.. but on top of that I asked for a botox consultation. What he suggested was exactly what I was thinking, nothing more or pushy or over the top. He quoted me a price that I felt was very reasonable so I was down. He did it 10 minutes later, and at first I was a bit horrified with all of the redness and swelling from the injections, but they only lasted 30 minutes and after that, it was literally the BEST THING EVER. By dinner time I looked well rested, and fresh faced. No more deep expression lines. I will be back to see Dr. Lodha as soon as my forehead wrinkles return. It's been a little over 2 months though, and still looking good! Thanks Dr. Lodha
Seriously impressed by how kind, warm, and professional literally every person was in the office, from the moment I entered to the time I left. Dr. Lodha himself was prompt, unrushed yet efficient, knowledgable and informative, warm and caring. Absolutely outstanding experience across the board, and thrilled to have found my permanent dermatologist in Dr. Lodha!
I have referred several friends to him and they all have only positive things to say. This office is excellent from the front staff to Dr. Lodha himself.
The office is nice, and Dr. Lodha is easy to talk to and very professional!
Thank you fellow ZocDoc reviewers! Had a great experience today. Wonderful office staff, beautiful office and great bedside manner. Would definitely recommend him to others!
I've been seeing Dr. Lodha for about a year now, and I consistently have had great experiences him and Pura Dermatology. He always encourages me to do my own research before pursuing a course of treatment and he legitimately cares about answering any questions I have, even after explaining the ins and outs of a procedure clearly and simply. The doctor's staff is exceptional, as well. Brittany, who works at the front desk, is an incredible asset to this practice. She is so warm, well-informed, and willing to help patients. I overheard her helping someone out with a tricky insurance situation, answering any questions he had, and pointing him in the right direction to ensure that he was fully informed and covered by his insurance. To top it all off, they have always honored the appointments I booked on ZocDoc, even when I have to cancel or reschedule online; I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes, even on a busy day. The level of service and care that I receive here is astounding, and certainly is hard to find these days. Thanks for being amazing, guys!!!
Dr. Lodha is awesome. I cannot express enough how thorough, friendly, professional and knowledgeable he is. He treated my skin concerns on the spot and answered all of my questions. I really like this guy a lot. You should check him out and see for yourself.
I have a regular doc, so I was just going to see Dr. Lodha for a quick problem. He treated me like one of his regular patients. Great experience.
He seems very knowledgeable. Very thorough. I will go back.
Extremely pleased with the friendly staff, the beautiful office, and the helpful information that was given to me during my visit. Dr. Lodha was very personable and warm. Excited to have him as my dermatologist!
Follow up was a breeze, as expected. Same professionalism all over again.
Amazing Dermatologist. Took his time explaining what I have and prescribed a cure. Answered all my questions. Definitely recommend.
My visit with Dr. Lodha, his staff, and his office was a very pleasant experience and I would highly recommend him.
Best Dermatologist!! My experience with Dr. Lodha and his staff was exceptional. His office is refreshing, modern and spotless. His lasers are top of the line. His execution was flawless with noticeable results. I have been to several dermatologist throughout Manhattan for medical and cosmetic work, Dr. Lodha is the best by far. I'm glad I can stop searching. Highly recommend!
great! very helpful!
Dr. Lodha was great! He was very professional and took care to address my concerns (I came with many skin issues). He and his assistants were very helpful and made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely be back to see him for future skin concerns.
Dr. Lodha is kind, a great listener and so professional. I NEVER write reviews but he deserves it. I've been dealing with acne since I was 16. I'm 26 now and was about to just give up. I booked with him specifically because I have dark skin and he does too. I wanted to make sure I went to someone who would understand my needs. During my first visit he made me feel so confident that he could clear my skin. It's been 2 weeks and I can already tell a difference. The ladies who work in his office are also great, especially Birttany. I am very glad I decided to book and appointment!
Pleasantly surprised at how easy the process was. Dr. Lodha was extremely friendly, knowledgable, and thorough. I would highly recommend him.
The friendliest staff I have seen in New York. Very thorough and extremely thoughtful. Followed up several times via phone after our visit.
Very professional. He explained everything in a manner were the patient understand. He prescribed the right medication and the problem was resolved in less than two days. Amazing!
Very professional, very quick. I will definitely be returning.
Dr. Lodha is always very polite, prompt and professional. Highly recommended.
For a first visit he was good and patient.
Very friendly and efficient staff. Wonderful experience.
He was great! Answered all my questions. Clear skin here we come. ??
I am pleased I found him on zocdoc and would highly recommend him!!
Overall experience was pleasant Efficient and great bedside manner Reception was very kind as well
Super friendly staff and Dr. Lodha is as well. Took his time examining me and explaining as he went. He made me feel very comfortable. Listened to my questions and offered lots of knowledge and suggestions. Clean, nice office. Virtually no wait time. Definitely going back.
My experience at this office was top notch! Front desk was amazing. Medical staff with Dr Lodaha so professional. Dr Lodaha was perfect. Office...very HIP...NOW...WOW!! I will be going back in tow weeks to take care of my diagnosis right in the office.
The service was impeccable and the doctor truly cares about his patients.
Less than 30 and that was because I had to fill in first time visit forms. All good there.
It was awesome, the first doctor to ever make me smile and feel comfortable when doing a consultation, I hate needles and the way he handle it made me feel calm. Even his staff had me smiling and my nephew couldn't get enough of the two females at the front desk. Can't wait for my next appointment.
Doctor and office staff were fast, efficient, professional, personable. Scheduling my follow-up was easy.
Reception personnel were professional and friendly. Dr. Lochs and his nurses are informative,knowledgeable, professional and excellent at putting you at ease. They create a game plan and a direction. One of the best doctor's offices I have ever experienced. #awesomenesspersonified
This was a return visit for me. I highly recommend Dr. Lodha. The office is new and inviting, and the staff professional and courteous.
He was able to identify the cause of my rash right away and answered all of my questions.
By far, one of the best dermatologist ever. He is always courteous and gentle and gets to the bottom of the diagnosis. And his staff is AMAZING! Want to keep him a secret!
Clean and professional office. Dr. Lodha is an excellent communicator. Confident and enthusiastic about explaining and translating information. He offered in depth explanations and discussion of details. Thank you!
Wonderfully efficient all around, from reception to the appointment itself. Extremely happy with how everything went.
I had a great experience here. The receptionists, the nurse (Selena), and the doctor were all very kind, professional, and made me feel very comfortable. They were both efficient and thorough. I highly recommend this practice.
Very nice and caring doctor. Answered my concerns and questions in detail. Highly recommended.
Dr. Lodha was professional, friendly, and very personable. He answered all of my questions before I even had to ask them, and made me feel very comfortable during the whole appointment. I will certainly be back for all of my dermatology needs.
I took his advice and it paid off, my symptoms are going away!
Dr. Lodha made me feel very comfortable when I visited him yesterday for a skin rash. He was very helpful and gave me the information I needed to know about the cause and treatments. The facility is very clean and well maintained.
It was a really informative visit. The doctor was very quick and he had a great personality. Made me feel very comfortable for my first visit. He provided me with lots of information which made me feel at ease. He also recommended products that would improve my skin and prevent sun burn. I will definitely return to Dr Lodha in the future.
Dr. Lodha and his staff are so impressive. Their friendliness and attention to patient service are truly exceptional. I wish all my doctors were like this!
Great service. Professionalism starts from the time I entered the office till discharge. First doctor's appointment I look forward to go to. Dr. Lodha is very informative and answers with honesty all questions put forward to him.
My visit with Dr.Saurabh Lodha was great, he was very knowledgeable about my acne and skin problems, and took his time explaining them to me.He is a very nice doctor.
Visit went well! Everyone from the receptionist to the doctor were professional and super nice.
Great bedside manor in and out in less then 20 min. I was seen immediately and given a concise answer to my question.
He is a very good doctor! Looking forward to seeing him again. Highly recommend him
Office staff very friendly and accommodating. Office well organized and quiet. Doctor is very professional and friendly.
Very very good. I went in for a simple checkup to get my moles looked at, but it felt like he addressed every question I've ever had about my skin without me even asking. I also had 3 moles removed quick and easy. No pain, and plenty attention to detail.
Absolutely excellent and professional experience. Highly recommend dr Lodha...its worth the extra trip west.
My visit was wonderful and I'm looking to refer people who don't need to see a dermatologist. He was amazing and very on point with everything
Dr. Lodha has a beautiful office with a friendly reception team. They worked quickly to get me in to see him. Dr. Lodha was very friendly and took great care to explain everything he was doing. I would highly recommend him.
Very thorough and efficient. Dr. Lodha explained everything fully.
He's a hack that didn't ask enough questions and prescribed me a medication that gave me major intestinal issues. Also upsold me on a common acne medication that was marked up in his office to make an additional profit.
My fear of doctors and hospitals stem from childhood but it was a great relief to work with Dr Lodha as he was very gentle and thorough. His staff from the front desk to the nurse were professional and personable. The hospital was also very well organize, clean and inviting. I would highly recommend Dr Lodha's office to any new patients looking for a new doctor.
Great staff. Wonderful doctor. Highly recommend.
great doctor, explained everything I needed to know.
The doctor was kind, thorough and very helpful. The staff was also very accommodating. This will be my one and only place for dermatology.
Dr. Lodha is great! I am always seen right away. He is very professional and knowledgeable while being friendly and personable. I will definitely continue to see him.
He is great!
Everyone here, from the receptionist to the doctor, is friendly and very reassuring. I picked up my prescription right after today's appointment and am already seeing results after one application! I'm confident Dr. Lodha will help me improve the overall appearance of my skin, and I'm so grateful for his expertise.
I realized upon leaving Dr. Lodha's office today that I was happy, and satisfied, just like I've been every other time I left there. Dr. Lodha is thorough, informative, gets to the root of the problem quickly and has the nicest, most pleasant staff you'll ever find. All that and under a 10 minute wait every time. What more could you ask for?
Have visited 2 previous dermatologists and Dr. Lodha has been the only one that gave me the right diagnosis. It happened to be a vitamin deficiency not an infection.
First time here, I loved it! It was quick & easy, He got straight to the point and he was so nice !
From the moment I walked in, the staff was very kind and the ladies at the front desk were very helpful. There was barely any wait time, just a couple of minutes to have my paperwork processed, and then it was to the back to meet the doctor. Dr. Lodha was very knowledgeable about my condition and gave me lots of good information about it, without merely giving me medication options. I also had quite a few questions and he was very willing to answer them. The appointment did not feel rushed, and Dr. Lodha seems genuinely interested in helping his patients.
This was my first visit with Dr. Lodha. He was pleasant, knowledgeable, thorough, and professional. Everyone I met in the office was pleasant and helpful as well. Overall, it was a good experience.
My experience with Dr. Lodha and his office was exceptional and I would highly recommend him. I arrived early for my appointment and was seen right away. Both Dr. Lodha and his staff were very personable and welcoming. He addressed all my questions and concerns, and made me feel at ease.
He and his staff were professional, kind, and... funny? Not what I'm used to with doctors' offices in NYC, but it was refreshing. I had been stuck on the subway and was 15 minutes late, but they kindly accommodated my lateness. Would recommend them for sure.
I will certainly return!
Doctor Saurabh Lodha's office was very clean, the staff members were very nice and professional and the exam room was impeccable. I arrived late due to traffic, rain, and an MTA bus that decided to skip that bus stop on the one day with torrential down pours. However the staff at the desk was understanding and ensured the doctor was able to see me still. Doctor Saurabh Lodha is very knowledgeable but the visit was too quick and was over before I even realized; it almost felt like he was trying to squeeze in as many visits in a short period as possible. I know it wasn't just my tardiness because a colleague of mine had the same experience. I wished he would have asked more questions about my general skin care and prevention aside from what I went to see him for. I would recommend him highly but I suggest having a list of questions prepared for your visit ahead of time.
I wish everyone had taken a little more time with me - everything moved a little too quickly that it started to feel a bit overwhelming. Other than that, everyone couldn't have been nicer - it was a very nice experience.
He's amazing. Very informative polite and just great
The overall location was convient to where I work, the receptionist was friendly and professional. The location was clean, neat and organized and modern. The doctor was great, explained what was being done and had a easy going personality. He will now be my permanent dermatologist.
No wait time. great doctor. He explained everything to me and why it's happening. Also gave me A sheet has everything that I have to avoid. Highly recommended!
One of my best doctor experiences ever! Dr. Lodha's entire staff was quick yet thorough, and his knowledge and expertise of skin is second to none. I am an avid user of ZocDoc and Dr. Lodha is my experience to date.
Phenomenal! His staff is very friendly and social.A lot of times it's awkward ,not that you need entertainment while you wait but let's be serious a lot of your doctor's visit is about the WHOLE experience.If you've waited for hours in a dirty crowded office and no one communicates you'd be miserable by the time you see a Dr.Not here, everyone was professional . Dr Saurabh goes above and beyond, he is VERY explicit in explaining your questions and doesn't just give you an explanation just to move to the next person.He's great. I will find a reason to be back ;-).Lol
He was professional and very knowledgable. I will absolutely see him again if needed.
He's very nice, and extremely knowledgeable. I've been going to him for 4 months now and no complaints so far!
Smart, personable, accurate.
As fantastic as always have been.
Dr. Lodha was great... I was seen right on time, and the appointment took 15-20 minutes. The office is also extremely clean and bright (a plus!) I would definitely recommend him.
Great doctor, very nice front desk and assistants. Office is clean and organized. Will repeat as needed.
This doctor is awesome. Super knowledgable and very kind. Exactly what a specific person like me looks for. He explained, in depth, the answers to every question I had.
The appointment was very rushed. At two different instances, two different assistants came into the room while I waited and asked me the same questions. When the doctor arrived, the consultation was very brief. And while he did address my concern, there was no actual closeup examination of my skin, which makes me feel uneasy. He seemed to be very busy, but I also felt like just another number amongst the crowd.
Best experience that I've had seeing a doctor in the city. Not only was Dr. Lodha great, but his staff was excellent as well. Would not go to any other dermatologist after seeing him.
Dr. Lodha is always super nice and I love how knowledgeable he is about my condition. He always has great recommendations and takes all of my concerns seriously. He's the best dermatologist I've ever had!
Very nice and friendly people in the entire office. Very clean, looks brand new.
Extremely friendly and attentive. Takes the time to listen to your concerns and explain treatments to you. Helped me resolve a couple of stubborn issues that required multiple treatments, that 3 other dermatologists I saw before him were unable to diagnose and treat.
Everyone in the office is always very courteous, friendly and helpful Dr. Lodha is very thorough and addresses all my issues and concerns. Feel very comfortable and at ease Definitely recommend Dr. Lodha and I will keep seeing him
Consistent good friendly clean service. Great office, great doctor, great staff.
Personable, friendly and knowledgeable. He took Time and examined in details
My overall visit went very well. The lady at the front desk was very professional and very sweet. the office is immaculate. Dr. Lodha was nice. He answered questions I had, although I didn't ask many. One thing I was about confused about was that he came in and knew what creams/washes/anti-biotics he was going to put me the second he opened the door. He didn't really speak to me or ask me any questions prior to making this decision. I don't know, maybe the guy is THAT good. Felt a little skeptical about how the appointment went for this reason, but I am going to remain patient/optimistic and try the products he prescribed before I can really say anything. Overall, he was still really nice and professional. He did some work on my face - injected two pimples, opened a few others, and used some cool exfoliator. They automatically scheduled me for a 2 week follow-up, so I guess we'll see what happens!
Excellent service, knowledgeable and approachable. Can't recommend him enough!
Great team! Thank you for advice and assistance!
Doctor Lodha is amazing! Friendly and professional. I was so impressed by him. The office staff is great! The place is very clean and modern. I will definitely be back and will highly recommend him. Can't be happier that I found him just by searching and reading reviews !!!
An excellent doctor. He listen to my concerns made me feel at ease & prescribed the needed medication. I was encouraged to call Dr. Lodha before my follow up if I felt my condition worsen or had not improved.. The office is clean & modern. The staff was super professional which is an asset to the physician, especially office manager Brittany she made me feel so welcome. Looking forward to my next visit
This place is awesome.
The doctor is intelligent, thorough, respectful, and efficient. The staff is professional, friendly, and helpful. There is usually very little wait, and the office is clean, modern, and attractive.
Amazing. Dr. Lodha is an amazing physican who truly cares. He made sure to explain all my questions and addressed all my issues.
Short 5 min wait, office was clean and modern. Dr. Lodha was nice and patient with me, answering all my questions. Would definitely recommend.
My visit was great, Dr. Loda was very nice and informative. I suffer from acne and I left feeling assured i'd be in good hands on my journey to clear skin.
The visit was fine. The doctor was very thorough. The staff was just "ok". They could have been a bit more professional. For example, she was alternating between talking into the phone and me. Didn't even really look up from the desk. At one point I wasn't sure if she was talking to me or someone on the phone. Also, what's up with the music blasting in the waiting room. Especially when it was borderline inappropriate music. I don't care how modern an office is. It's a doctors office not a night club.
Super friendly staff and clean office.
First experience with a dermatologist and it was such a great experience. Dr. Lodha was very prompt and attentive. Highly, highly recommended!
An amazing doctor highly recommend him he has all the answers and solutions to your problems!
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Lodha. He's personable, knowledgeable and efficient. He takes a genuine interest in his patients. His office staff is top-notch, too -- just lovely to deal with. I get a real pick-me-up from my visits, as crazy as that sounds. (My son is a patient, too, and feels the same way.)
Visit was pretty quick. Doctor was very nice, and made diagnosis quickly. I forgot to ask for a print out of the product recommendations and instructions for treatment, so in future it might be something that would have been nice to give out at the end. Other than that, pleasant experience.
Ground Floor office entrance ( A+) Office appearance modern (A+) you know what's coming now????? Dr Lodha ( A+++++) I was blown away with Dr Lodha professional and sound expertise in skin care. Old World techniques with a ultra modern flair. Highly recommended!
His staff is amazing. They are very kind and friendly. The Dr. Lodha is really nice. I will definitely go back.
Very proffesional and courteous.
Very pleasant doctor and seemingly very knowledgable about anything I asked. He smiled a lot and made me feel very comfortable there. His office is very clean and the girl at the front desk is awesome! I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Lodha was very friendly and knowledgeable. He answered all my questions thoroughly and was very patient. I am glad I made the trek out in the winter storm to see him.
Dr. Lodha is the absolute man, such a friendly and knowledgable doc, couldn't recommend him more. The whole office staff is awesome as well, what a lovely experience.
the doctor and his staff are awesome. They are both kind friendly and very hospitable. The doctor knew exactly what was going on and Knew how to treat my condition.I would refer this doctor to anyone. If you have a chance see him indeed a dermatologist I would advise you not to give him a second thought. He is the Doctor to go t.
Was a good visit with the exception of the third person inside the room that made me very uncomfortable, it is the first time in my life, and I'm quite old, that I have to share the intimacy of doctor/patient with someone else inside the consultation room The assistance made an efficient job assisting but it is not necessary inside plus I was never asked about it.
Dr. Lodha is simply the best! He's so sweet, his staff is wonderful and you can tell he is truly passionate about what he does. I highly recommend him! This was my first time going to a Dermatologist in the city and I just can't say enough good things about him. Don't look any further than him!
I have been visiting Dr. Lodha's office for acne for a few months now and see a dramatic difference in my skin. During my first appointment, Dr. Lodha told me he was going to "cure me" of my acne. Suffice it to say I was slightly skeptical about this statement--but in just a few short months, my skin has vastly improved! Outside of the effective regimen he prescribed, Dr. Lodha's bedside manner should also be commended. He is personable, attentive and answers questions thoroughly without rushing. I also have to give credit to the office staff. Brittany and Celeana at the front desk are not only helpful and efficient but they are very nice girls! Great to speak to while waiting to see the doctor.
Love this Doctor! The office is so nice an cozy and the staff is great!
My visit was very quick and professional. Dr. Lodha explained my diagnosis and prescription throughly. Good visit! Very to-the-point. The front desk staff were really friendly and conversational.
Dr. Saurabh Lodha was extremely knowledgeable and confident. He made sure I understood all of his instructions and answered my questions completely.
Fast, clean, friendly, effective. Dr. Lodha and the Pura dermatology practice are well run.
Dr. Lodha and staff are xecellent. Upon arrival I was greeted by two members of his staff in which were very polite and courteous. They gave me no hassle to the fact that I was running 10 min behind my scheduled appointment. His office assistant was also very pleasant. First time visiting a dermatologist so didn't know what to expect. Dr. Lodha explained the process thoroughly to me before commencing, asked many questions to understand the root of my breakout, and gave specific instruction on how to use the items he would be prescribing. I will definitely return to Dr. Lodha as well as recommend any family or friends.
Great friendly and very professional. I really like him. He's funny and easy to talk to and i been to other dermatologist and they would just talk and prescribe the same prescription. This one doctor even told me where nothing i could do about my acne. Dr Lodha said not only could he do something about it he will do it everything he could to help me. He gave me hope and i really recommend him
Dr. Lodha was great. He was caring, seemed knowledgeable, and took the time to answer all my questions. He also did a recap at the end of the appointment to make sure we got everything covered.
Excellent doctor. I truly had a lovely experience visiting his office. It has been less than 24 hours and my face is already clearing up!
Great visit, looking forward to going back. Thanks!
The office was really nice, I was seen right away, and Dr. Lodha was really nice and thorough!
Receptionists we're very friendly and helped me with an issue with my insurance card. They went out of their way to fix the situation, were very patient, and got me right in with the doctor as soon as they found a resolution. The appointment was quick and efficient, would definitely recommend.
Wonderful doctor! Really cares about you and what you want to fix. I went for acne and he's super positive and knowledgable.
Super simple process and very friendly staff, minimal wait time and was extensively informed of my condition and treatment steps! Highly recommend.
Nice person. Probably a good doctor. But I wouldn't go back. Didn't feel like he genuinely cared. Felt super rushed. (It was the end of the day but should it matter?) He spoke fast I barely remembered what he prescribed. (Nothing that i didnt know already anyway). I expect more from a doctor with this amount of great reviews. Not good, not bad - satisfactory. Not going back.
Very pleased, Brittany is wonderful and the rest of the team. Dr. Lodha, MD, made me feel comfortable while discussing my problem and new right away what I had. I will recommend whenever possible. Regards, Gina
The doctor quickly treated my condition and set up a followup appointment for a skin check up.
Excellent doctor, great friendly front desk, fast service.
Dr. Lodha is super friendly and very wicked smart. I go to him every year for my skin check. Wouldn't trust anyone else!
Dr. Lodha was extremely professional and quick yet thorough. I'll definitely be back.
Great office and staff. Friendly and short wait times.
Very helpful and professional - took time to explain things thoroughly to me, including what I could start changing immediately and what sort of side effects to expect with my medication. Best visit to a derm I've ever had! :)
He listened to all of my concerns and addressed them all quickly but fully. He sent the prescriptions to my pharmacy right away, and he offered to change them if they were not affordable. I'm also glad that he took some time to describe how my problems occurred and that they weren't out of the ordinary. The other staff members were also incredibly friendly, helpful, and personable.
I had to come in for a procedure, and Dr. Lodha put me at ease right away: He is exceptionally skilled and knowledgeable, and was efficient, competent and professional. The consultation was a bit rushed, but I can't really complain: He has great bedside manner. And he was very sensitive to my concerns about costs and insurance coverage, which I really appreciated.
I haven't been to the dermatologist in decades so I was understandably a little nervous but Dr. Lodha put me at ease, quickly diagnosed my issue and offered a reasonable treatment and I saw results immediately. Would highly recommend his practice.
Dr. Lodha took the time to answer all my questions. He provided me a detailed plan of how we are going to go about tackling my issues. He was very reassuring and polite. I'm looking forward to continuing working with him.
Great very professional and friendly , eased my nerves and made me feel comfortable , answer all my questions
The doctor was great - knowledgeable and good bed side manners. The location of the office is terrible though. As a woman, I was scared to walk in such a sketchy neighborhood. Debating seeing the doctor again due to the location.
awesome staff! Dr lodha was caring and knowledgeable. I highly recommend coming to see him!
This was the second time I saw Dr. Lodha and I am even more impressed than I was the first time! He's so friendly and attentive and really takes the time to explain everything thoroughly and make sure I understood my treatment and all of my options. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great dermatologist!
very cheerful, sensitive doctor. Clear + helpful.
Doctor was extremely receptive, friendly and helpful. He listened to my concerns, gave a thorough examination, and a thorough diagnosis. Kind, efficient, effective care! I will be returning!
My visit's were always nice...His staff was amazing which was a big reason I came back. But I stopped going to him. I have this spot on my nose that my old dermatologist was taking care of, but he retired. So I went to Lodha and after a few treatments from some laser - I didn't see any improvement at all. I would understand if there was nothing he could do, but I've seen more improvement with other dermatologists and other forms of treatment. Nicely enough, he refunded me for my last visit...but I haven't gone back since.
He is very professional, friendly , overall a great doctor.
Smart, nice and an excellent doctor.
The office is very nice and modern. The staff was welcoming and friendly. Glad i found Dr Lodha. I felt very comfortable with both Dr Lodha and the staff.
Great bedside manner, everyone in the office is extremely professional and friendly. He goes above and beyond to make sure I have a good experience and that my skin stays clear.
It was good, the doctor seemed to be on a hurry
He is a very nice and gentle man. He listened to my concerns and made me feel comfortable about everything. I was looking for a new dermatologist and I think I found one! He's highly recommended!
Completely positive experience (on this, my second visit, as with my first). Office staff members are very efficient and friendly, too.
I was seen right away and took the time to address all of my concerns. Was very friendly and attentive.
Best doctor and staff, hands down, I've ever dealt with since moving to NYC. They are quick, SO nice and patient, and overall fantastic. The staff is friendly, and Dr. Lodha is amazing - could not recommend enough.
Everyone in this office was so friendly, and so quick and efficient! They even suggested alternative pharmacys for me. Dr Lodha was kind, answered all of my questions, and treated a few of my issues right there on the spot. The office is super modern and clean. If you want all your derm needs met quickly and efficiently (with a smile!), go here!!
He knows his stuff. He is quick, precise - doesn't waste your time. Wait time was literally 3 mins - Receptionist - Brittany girl is very nice and friendly. I would highly recommend.
My experience with Dr. Lodha was by far the most comforting and informative visit I have ever had with a dermatologist! I am definitely referring all of my family and friends.
Nice doc who seems to know his work well. Took the time and didn't rush the appointment
Dr Lodha seems to improve with each visit. He is quite knowledgeable, patient, informed, and helpful/supportive, I like that he's flexible with treatment approaches.
Great visit. Dr. Lodha and his staff were cordial, respectful, and efficient.
Amazing Service. Doctor was very attentive, understanding and knowledgable. Gave me an opportunity to ask questions and was very detailed in looking into my hair loss. Would definitely recommend! Will be going back soon for follow up. Until then looking into seeing a primary doctor he recommended to check out.
efficient, friendly, professional!
He was trying to get me out quick, he did not even take the time to listen to me, the history of what was going on. He changed his mind about the prescription 3 times within 10 minutes. I would NEVER recommend this doctor.
A wonderful experience. Finally a doctor who didn't make me feel like a specimen but actually a person. Already have been recommending.
Great doctor, great bedside manner, very caring, and gentle (had skin treatment - not painful). Staff is friendly and accommodating.
Great. Knows his stuff.
The whole visit lasted maybe 5 minutes and was very, very fast-paced. While I have gone back a few times for followups and my condition is now under control, my consent was not asked for a "procedure" (really something I could have done myself at home) and I ended up getting a hefty bill from my insurance company. While misleading and frustrating, I will likely go back if/when I need to because the treatment was incredibly fast.
He was fine but I felt like he was trying to sell me procedures etc
Pleasant and to the point. His office is brand new and spotless. Wait time less than 15 min.
Loved the friendly staff, great atmosphere, and knowledgeable doctor that made me feel very comfortable
Staff and doctor was professional and courteous. Organized. Clean office. The doctor seems knowledgeable and addressed my concerns. Staff took care of pharmaceutical needs so all I had to do was pickup from pharmacy.
He was truly a great doctor! All the reviews are dead on! He answered all my questions and ensured that I didn't have anymore questions. Great and welcoming staff! Highly recommend!
Dr. Lodha is great. He's really helped me get my acne under control (which came out of NOWHERE in my mid-twenties). Definitely recommend.
Very knowledgeable doctor. Quick with his assessment but in no way rushed. Extremely pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommend.
The best Doctor I have ever visited..very patient and friendly..
Great Doctor. Super Knowledgeable.
Dr. Lodha was wonderful. I didn't feel rushed at all in my visit and I felt like he really listened to my concerns and addressed them all to the best of his ability. In addition, his entire staff was warm and well-humored. For a first time visit, I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
modern type doctor great experience
Everything was in place as forms were already filled with zocdoc..!
First visit, entirely impressed, with normal reservations about accuracy. I really liked the cleanliness, efficiency, cheerful professionalism, modern equipment, zeroing in on and apparent knowledge about symptoms, and may have found a dermatologist I trust.
he and his staff are excellent.
Very good service. Will visit Dr Lodha in the future.
Dr. Lodha, was very reassuring about my concerns. He was also very explicit and caring about the small procedure he was performing. He was very thorough, gave me as much time as I needed, responding to my questions thoroughly. I highly recommend Dr. Lodha. My son has already set an appointment.
Dr. Lodha is the man. He hangs on everyword , has a great bedside manner and a huge brain. I left thorughly satisfied with his opinions , over all knowledge and instructions for my care. The office is state of the art, and extremely clean,. The staff is friendly and professionsl. And finnally, and this has zero to do with his ability, the brother is a really good looking dude for you ladies out there. Thanks doc !
Fantastic doctor! Assertive, knowledgeable and great at procedures.
Dr lodha is really nice and he actually listens my only complaint would be that it feels rushed when he's there it's great but appointment will literally last for about 3 minutes and then poof he's gone haha also I don't like that I have to use this online pharmacy rather than my own local one. Other than that he is very knowledgable, and helpful plus the staff is very professional and easy to talk to. :)
Dr. Lodha, while he had to deliver bad news to me, was a very thorough and kind doctor. His staff are all very kind and helpful. Definitely recommend. Smart.
Dr. Lodha was an absolute gem! He was extremely thorough and explained exactly what he was going to do and the reason behind each step. His assistant' was delightful and the receptionist was wonderful. It was a pleasure to walk into the office which was bright, cheerful & clean. Every doctor's office could learn a few things from their professionalism. What a great experience!
It was great experience!
He was personable and took his time to explain the examination. He made sure that he had answered all my questions, and checked to see if I had any more before he wrapped things up. All the support staff were very friendly and explained all the processes as we went along. The waiting room was pleasant and airy.
I would defiantly see Dr. Lodha again, he was very good and to the point. Our consultation was brief but I got all the information I needed. My appointment was for 4:30pm I arrived a few min early and was seen a few min before. I felt very comfortable and he helped me understand all the treatments. His staff was also very nice and welcoming.
It was a nice, pleasant and good visit. I will be back there again.
i was very impressed with his knowledge. i felt that he really cared
Good overall experience.
Wonerful doctor. He was very attentive to me and helped me in keeping my skin healthy.
It was very nice
Dr. Lodha took the time to listen, explain, and do a great job!
Dr Lodha is exactly what a doctor should always strive to be... He was professional while still being understanding. He answered all of my questions in a straightforward manner with no obfuscation as many doctors can be guilty of doing. The process was the definition of an ideal doctors visit with the entire staff being exceptionally good at their jobs. They were pleasant, professional and most importantly competent.
Super friendly, has a calming effect, very knowledgeable, very efficient, answered all my questions/concerns, and saw me as a last minute, before my appt time!
Highly recommended ! He wastha best dermatologist I've ever been too
Went to his office for a second opinion, Dr. Lodha staff was very friendly as I walked into office, which made me feel very comfortable. They took care of all paper work and sat me in chair in a timely fashion. Dr. Lodha listened to all my issues and addressed them one by one and explained everything. At the end of appointment I was positive that I choosed the right dermatologist.
Finally a physican that cares about his patients. Concise on-point and knowledgable !
He is very friendly and professional.
The office is clean and modern. The staff are all warm and friendly. Dr. Lodha saw me right on time, explained everything well, and made me feel comfortable. Highly recommended.
I wouldn't visit again. Still confused why the question of cash payment was presented when I have insurance. Dr. was very rushed and did not address all of my questions. Kept saying his aid (nurse assistant?) would address my questions. Aid basically gave me reading materials and repeated what Dr. said. My prescription was sent to an online pharmacy when I specifically asked for it to be sent to a local DReade.
professional and courteous
Dr. Lodha is simply the best! He is a professional that really knows his stuff, but above all, he is extremely caring and helpful and will take his time and answer all of your questions. He provides options and thinks outside the box, unlike most derm doctors I have seen in the past.
Very professional, knowledgeable. Great visit
A GREAT doctor!!! Friendly, pleasant and helpful staff. I came to doctor Lodha after a terrible experience with a high profile dermatologist which resulted a new skin problem. He was very thorough, listened to me explained my condition and treatment. He was professional and reassuring. Highly recommended!!
Great doctor and lovely staff!
Dr. Lodha is very personable, caring and patient. I discussed with him my concerns over taking the types of medications that have been recommended for my condition in the past. He listened attentively and briefed me on the potential advantages and disadvantages and then worked with me to come up with the best plan to suit my needs. The office is clean and modern and the women working at the front desk are very friendly and efficient at running the office. Highly recommended!
One of the best. Very little wait time and doctor was spot on with my treatment. Highly recommend.
The ladies at the front desk were very friendly and smiled much. The Doctor was also friendly he showed concerned and asked the right questions. Will see him in 3 weeks also will refer co-workers!
Can only sum up my experiences with "eh..."
Dr. Lodha is one of the nicest doctors I have seen. He is very open to listening to what the problem is and ready to help. He is super educated and will inform you on exactly what the problem is. Highly highly recommend! Very clean office and polite staff. Such a good experience!
Absolutely great experience. He diagnosed very accurately something that i have been struggling with for years. None of my previous 5 dermatologists were able to diagnose this accurately. He even gave me the diagnosis and and asked me to look it up so understand this better. Great office. Amazing staff. Spends a lot of time with you listening to all your concerns and explaining the details. Doesnt rush you at all. Inshort changed my life. Highly recommended.
Can you say best dermitologist vist ever!!!! This is the FIRST time I feel educated and hopeful about my skin conditions. He didnt just hand me a prescription and push me out like the dermitologist's I've come in contact with before. His staff was great, they were very polite and just friendly in general. Im definetly coming back and I would recomend him.
I really liked his enthusiasm and willingness to listen. The office is very clean and everyone is professional.
He is so easy to set up an appointment right away and very efficient. no complain!!!
This office is awesome!!! I was 20 minutes late to my appointment and still only had to wait 10-15 minutes to be seen. The receptionist was so friendly as well as the other staff and the doctor was super knowledgeable about my skin condition. I was definitely impressed and felt like my issue was handled very professionally and friendly. Awesome experience.
Super nice staff and doctor was great. Beautiful office space too. Highly recommend.
Best doctor visit I've ever had.
Saurabh Lodha MD, made my visit very pleasant. He was very patient with me and he answered all my questions. He did not rush me he took his time. The secretary was professional and polite. The place was nice and clean.
A+. Great interaction with reception and doctor. In and out quickly. Have already recommended.
I'm not going back for sure. Low quality on medical attention, patient follow up, and the location is not the best either. I wouldn't recommend this place. The Dr. Himself wasn't outstanding and, for what I read about my skin issue on medical publications, he didn't do much cerifications before prescribing the medications I got. It was huge hassle to get my medication and I never knew if what I got was correct, I had to call the office many times to try and confirm what the dr had prescribed without success.
I would recommend this doctor to anyone
Very professional office- all staff were knowledgable and friendly. All my documents were printed from online and wait time was only a minute. Will definitely return.
Dr Saurabh Lodha is awesome !!!! I will be coming back for more mole removals. It was quick, painless and I was very satisfied with everything ! Thanks Dr. !!!
So efficient, kind, and I felt truly listened to. When I expressed concern about using antibiotics, he quickly re routed me down a more holistic and natural path. Loved that openness!
Brilliant doctor! Place is so clean and girls at reception are a delight!!!
I saw him on Wednesday, and by Friday, my problem was fixed with the cream he prescribed. His diagnosis was so quick that I was almost distrusting, but I had no reason to be.
Dr. Lodha's office staff was very welcoming and put me at ease immediately. The office is beautiful (the location, not so much) and I was seen right away. Dr. Lodha was friendly and seemed knowledgable but, as others have stated, he speaks very quickly and leaves little opportunity for questions. I do feel confident that his prescribed treatment will solve my skin issue. One thing that I definitely did not like, though, was that Dr. Lodha sends his prescriptions electronically to a specific pharmacy that he recommends. He told me that he does this as many insurance companies will try to deny payment for acne treatments, and this recommended pharmacy will "fight for you" (but, so will any other pharmacy). They will also ship medications directly to your home. Because he was speaking so quickly, I agreed to have my prescriptions sent there against my better judgement. I called the pharmacy the next day and asked to have the prescriptions transferred to my own local pharmacy; they told me that they are unable to do so and that I will have to contact Dr. Lodha's office and have them redo the prescriptions. I ended up just letting the recommended pharmacy fill them, and I hope I will receive them in a timely manner (it has been two days as of this post).
I avoid going to the doctor at all costs because of the long wait, endless paperwork and most of the time feeling rushed through the visit. Dr. Lodha was amazing. I left there with a smile. The office was lovely, the staff so pleasant and he was wonderful. The paperwork was done on line prior to the visit. I walked in sat down and 3 minutes later was in his office. I'm going to recommend him to all my friends.
A great, knowledgeable, and personable dermatologist.
He was great and when I told him I did not want to hear stress was the cause of my skin constitution, he gave me a real answer like I was looking for. I'm went to him for a second opinion but now I am switching dermatologists!
Dr Lodha is an amazing doctor! As soon as I walked into the office I fekt right at home greeted by his friendly professional staff! Dr Lodha has excellent bedside manner took the time to hear out all my problems and concerns. He started me on some treatments right away took his time to carefully explain everything throughly, I am not the bravest person when it comes to needles but Dr Lodha made me feel at ease and it worked! He is now my new permanent dermo! Thank You Dr Lodha and staff! Looking forward to my follow up
He's great! The office is close to my office- the staff is friendly and efficient. I highly recommend.
Such a nice, approachable doctor.
Dr. Lodha was great! The office was very clean and inviting. The receptionists were super friendly. Dr. was very knowledgeable and diagnosed me fairly quickly. While the visit was short and sweet, I felt very happy overall with the service. Will definitely be coming back!
Staff at the front desk was helpful and attended me as soon as I stepped in. Dr.Lodha was extremely professional and provided me a quick consultation.would highly recommend.
Dr. Lodha was great. He was very friendly and knowledgable. Staff was very kind too. I had no wait at all. I would definetely go again.
Best visit to a doctor in a while. Saw me early, answered all my questions thoughtfully, very patient, all around great experience. Excellent doc.
felt like he was rushing me out as soon as we started.
I had a great appointment with the dr. He was thorough and extremely kind. I had an issue I needed to take care of that day and he took care of it right away minimizing potential pain and calming my anxiety about it. I scheduled a follow up. I highly recommend him.
His treatment worked...he listened to what I had to say. I had a pretty good experience
Dr Lodha is very professional and diagnosed my condition right away. I would heartily recommend him to all my friends.
So far so good, it was a pleasureable experience both he and the staff were great!
He was really nice ... And listened to my concerns ...:)
I had a great first visit with Dr. Lodha. He was prompt, personable and explained things to me during my skin check. He took precautionary action and the process was quick and pain-free. I will definitely return.
Extremely helpful, easy to talk to and above all patiently listens to all your concerns.
Staff was very helpful! I went to many doctors before Dr.Lodha, but he was the only one who was able to confidently tell me what is wrong and treat it.
He is friendly and knowledgeable but only gave me a brief skin exam.
Used car salesman with an MD. Stay far away.
Nice office, nice staff. Good appointment overall.
Fantastic!! He was very friendly and i will definitely be going back.
Great job by Dr. Lodha. He has awesome bedside manner, and is very knowledgeable. Will return
Appointment process was painless and the receptionist, medical assistants and the Dr were all super nice and helpful.
Clean office. Friendly staff.
All in all it was super efficient--the physical environment was welcoming, and the staff was super nice. Both nurse and doctor explained the way my healthcare provider works, and what i'd be accountable for--this was a major help when deciding on whether or not I wanted to have the recommended procedure done. My only criticism is this...the doctor pointed out that my healthcare provider was new, and didn't payout as much as the older, more established insurance companies do--sorry, but as a liberal who strongly supports the Affordable Care Act, the amount of money you (the doctor) receive is the last thing I care about. I understand that you deserve to be paid nicely, but you (the doctors) and the insurance companies put us in our healthcare mess...so perhaps maybe taking a little less to make someones life more enjoyable is worth it? no?
This was my first visit with Dr. Lodha. He was very quick, informative and professional.
Just the best! He is approachable and takes time to walk you through options and discusses different prevention measures. Professional, friendly and smart!
Dr. Lodha was very thorough and easy to speak with. He answered all of my questions and made it a very quick visit.
Dr. Lohta and his staff are as good as they come. I had a fantastic visit and will be returning.
Dr. Lodha and his staff are seriously worth bragging about. He's extremely personable and his diagnosis was on point. I highly recommend him.
Wow! Dr. Lodha and his staff are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I love the fact that he took his time with all three of my boys, as well as explained their diagnosis/condition to me thoroughly. He was kind enough to offer assistance with my 13 year old's acne situation as well. We will be returning in two weeks for a follow-up. I'd like to also mention that Dr. Lohta's receptionist is top notch. She is as sweet as they get and offered to put a movie on for my kids to keep them entertained and not bored. The overall experience was phenomenal and I highly recommend Dr. Lohta. I'm so glad I found him.
Very friendly bedside manner, very knowledgeable doc, talked about long term care in addition to my immediate problem. Treated my problem immediately.
I really enjoyed my visits with Dr. Lodha. His staff is just as pleasant and helpful as he is. My experience was a positive one and he is definitely my new permanent Dermatologist.
Everyone was very nice.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Lodha. I found him to be thorough; the office was clean and the staff personable. I would recommend him to friends.
Great Doctor, pleasure going to see him.
Dr Hodha was very understanding and accomidating right from the get go.
Hands down the best dermatologist I've ever been to.
Really great dermatologist! Super thorough and friendly.
Dr. Lodha was really nice, but had a very fast paced speech that ran the length of the exam. He didn't really ask me questions or allow me to ask my own questions. It was a bit of an overload on helpful information, but it felt impersonal. After I left, I realized that I didn't even get to ask about a secondary skin issue that I had wanted to discuss with him.
He was great. Very thorough in his examination and made sure to answer all of my questions.Will definitely be returning!
He took his time, was very clear with instructions and what he saw and did. He saw something that worried him and he worked on it. Didn't wait.
Very professional and knowledgable, will definitely be returning.
From the reception to the exam room, everything was simple and the experience was great. He even did a few quick procedures that I wasn't aware I would need, but he made it quick,painless and explained everything before and after. If you are in the area and need to pop in for a Derm evaluation, I would highly recommend!
My visit to Dr. Lodha couldn't have gone better, from a very friendly receptionist to getting in to see him right away. He's incredibly friendly and knowledgable and made me feel comfortable throughout the examination. I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Lodha!
Dr. Lodha was very thorough and extremely knowledgeable! Excellent bedside manner. Highly recommended!
staff was sweet and professional. doctor was extremely detailed and well informed. absolutely no waiting time.
Although it was quiet a walk for me...I must say it was worth it. He's an amazing doctor. He seems confident and highly knowledgeable. Everyone's friendly and not to mention that the office is extremely clean and modern. I would def recommended him!
good diagnosis and great service
The girls at front desk are great! So accommodating to all my needs, with helping me fill prescriptions, change appointment times, and helping me out with insurance. The wait time was a only a couple of minutes. The doctor was very nice and seemed to know what he was talking about. My only complaint is that the appointment seemed rushed and he did not thoroughly explain the medications he was prescribing
Very friendly doctor and staff. No waiting, doctor saw me at my appointment time. Very clean office. I would recommend this dermatologist to anyone.
Very professional. Clear and concise in explaining my situation. Inquired if I understood and had any questions. Would highly recommend.
I have seen Dr Lodha several times. He and his staff are amazing and friendly. i look forward to my appts and have referred several friends and family to him.
Very thorough, professional, and punctual with exceptional bedside manner. Highly recommend.
Very professional, clean, and relaxed environment
Very gentle and nice doctor.
Very professional and cordial
He was extremely welcoming and polite. Very knowledgable, and all around excellent doctor. His staff is also wonderful, probably the best staff I've ever dealt with! The ONLY negative thing I have to say about my experience here is that during the visit, you are sort of rushed. I forgot to ask my questions I had listed in my phone and wanted to ask him to check a beauty mark but felt that he would get annoyed if I did so I didn't. My one question that I really wanted an answer to, I called when I left and he called me right back and provided me with answers and took his time. He seems to be available and it was great to have him call me. I got to ask my questions and clear everything up. All in all, I'd recommend and he will now be my permenant dermatologist. His negatives definitely do not overweigh his positives.
Excellent bedside manner. Very attentive and addressed all of my concerns. Visit exceeded expectations! Will definitely be returning. Also, the receptionist was the friendliest and cheeriest receptionist I've ever met in New York!
The doctor was very knowledgeable and friendly. He addressed the concerns I had thoroughly.
Great! Really cool guy and with soft-hand! He removed a mole with minimum pain!
It has been some time since I have seen Dr. Lodha. However, both Dr. Lodha and staff were extremely attentive to my medical condition at the time. If I need a dermatologist gain, I will seek Dr. Lodha's help.
The receptionist was lovely. The place was emaculate. The Dr. was great, gave me the time I needed and was very thorough.
Dr. Lodha was very personable and thorough. He made me feel at ease and diagnosed my problem immediately. I would definitely recommend him.
Professional and knowledgeable.
Dr. Lodha and his team provide an amazing experience at Pura Dematology! From the moment I booked the appointment to getting prescriptions it was efficient and easy. I was able to book my appointment online and submit all my paperwork from the comfort of my own home! When I walked in my paperwork was all ready to go and all I had to do was sit down. I noticed how Dr. Lodha personally comes out and greets each patient. I can say I have never seen a physician do such a thing and it made the whole experience that much more personal. He really takes his time explaining things to you and even age me a "cheat sheet" on how to treat my skin according to my problem. There is a Duane Reade next door that carries all his prescriptions should you ask for anymore convenience. I will 100% be back and can safely say I found me a fantastic dermatologist!
He was very knowlegeable and easy to talk to. You can tell he loves his profession and wants to do his best for you. He's young, energetic, and eager to help with any questions. I would recommend highly...and the office staff is very friendly as well.
He was great
Dr. Lhoda and his staff were all nice and accommodating. Good bedside manner as well as explained everything he was doing. The office is modern and clean . No wait time. I was prescribed several medications that I had questions with. Called the office and received a quick response. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Very professional. The whole staff is friendly and efficient and I always feel very comfortable going there
Dr. Lodha is knowledgeable, kind, and cares about your specific reasons for visiting. I've been to many derms that don't seem to care. Will definitely recommend him to friends. :)
Dr. Lodha was very professional, caring, and knowledgable.
Yes, it's kind of in the middle of nowhere, but I've been to a ton of dermatologists and this guy is legit. Office staff is super friendly, and the doctor puts you at ease right from the start. This place is worth the walk! (It doesn't hurt that he is easy on the eyes as well)
He was awesome and super friendly!
Very nice and clean facility. He seems to be a great guy very warm and inviting. .Will definitely recommend him to family and friends..
It was a great experience, I learned a lot about my acne (and acne in general.) Although I wasn't convinced with the medication prescribed to me I can confirm that he is a great doctor, his assistant & receptionist are very friendly.
My first visit was great! Dr. Lodha is very professional, personable, intelligent and easy to speak with. He answered my questions, and provided great solutions. His office staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend checking them out for your Dermatological needs. The office is located in my neighborhood, Midtown West and they have late office hours, which is rare and convenient.
Dr. Lodha is very professional and has a good manner with patients. He listened to my concerns and explained everything very clearly.
OUTSTANDING! All around!
Very helpful, gave me different options for both minor surgery as well as medicines to apply. Everything looks good today so I am glad I trusted his advice on what to do with a recurring skin issue.
Great doctor, great staff; so friendly! I had previously been to 2 doctors who completely dismissed my skin condition and basically asserted that I was crazy-- Dr. Lodha listened to me and was very understanding and knowledgable. Most importantly, he was empathetic with my concerns and didn't rush me out of the office. He gave me the prescriptions I needed and 5 days later I'm already feeling so much better. I would highly recommend him to anyone... very refreshing after so many disappointing and pointless visits with clueless/careless doctors, of which this world has way too many.
Highly recommend. Had been to two previous doctors who misdiagnosed/didn't recognize what Dr. Lodha immediately diagnosed. He was compassionate and very thorough in his explanation of how to treat the symptoms and assured me that I would have a resolution to the issue and feel better again soon.
I felt very informed and he was very knowledgeable. In addition, the young ladies who work there were awesome!
Very down to earth cool guy. Makes you feel at home and doesn't rush you out of the office. Every one should make an appointment if comfort is what you seek.
Very nice! Super quick! Definitely coming back!
The friendliest office staff I've found at any practice in New York. Was seen right away, and had prescriptions sent electronically to my pharmacy that were ready before I even got home from my appointment.
Dr. Lodha was very professional! I have major hair loss. Dr. lodha spent a lot of time with me. He explained my options and offered to work my Endo to properly treat me!
Dr. Lodha was very attentive and addressed all my concerns.
I went to see Dr Lodha for an injection into a huge painful pimple that would not release any fluid. During the visit, I pointed out an oversized pore on my back that would leak fluid, which he said he could take care of no problem. It was really more of a vanity issue than a medical one. He assured me one incision to remove the fluid sac underneath would solve the problem and there would be no scarring. The incision did not remove the fluid sac and I now have a visible scar. He was nice about trying to give me free sample for scarring (which didnt work) but I am left with an ugly scar on my back. Positive: his staff were very friendly
Quick / Informative with a nice modern office
I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist at the door. The office was very clean and organized. Saurabh Lodha, MD was very professional and explained everything clearly. I would recommend him to anyone searching for a informed dermatologist.
It's pretty far out there in the middle of nowhere on the west side of Manhattan, but it's most definitely worth the walk. The staff is charismatic and just the right amount of cheerful. They also carry really lovely conversation. You don't even feel like you're sitting in a doctors office with a medical issue you need to resolve. Dr. Lodha is a great guy, he really listens to your concerns and explains thoroughly and clearly. The dialogue he shares with his patients is also so easy and calm, I really could not have had a more pleasant experience.
Great experience. Everyone in the office was very friendly. Dr. Lodha saw me right away and was very thorough. I will definitely go back.
Great DR!! Definitely coming back!!
From the minute I walked in, I was impressed. All staff were friendly and welcoming - incredibly competent. LOVED the Dr. He was excellent - and cute (can I say that?).
Just got done with my first appointment but already feel that he's willing to work with me and enthusiastic to help me with my problem skin. Understanding and friendly. I will update if I notice drastic improvements in my skin. So far I like what he prescribed me and appreciate his advice and time during my appointment. Bedside manner is very good.
Kind, approachable, explained everything clearly and calmly in simple terms to make sure I completely understood the situation.
I had a great experience with Dr. Lodha. The office is brand new and reception is very nice/helpful. Dr. Lodha himself is great - very knowledgeable and didn't rush through my appointment. Location is a bit of a walk, but not terrible. I may consider switching to Dr. Lodha for my full time dermatologist moving forward.
My visit was pleasant and informative. I will def. recommend :-)
Dr. Lodha was knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. He did a good job of explaining my diagnosis, along with the pros and cons of treatment options. I walked in quite nervous and walked out quite reassured. Brittany (the office manager) is also quite lovely. Clean and professional environment and team - will definitely return!
This was my first appointment with a dermatologist and it was a lot less scary than anticipated! Dr. Lodha is full of knowledge and little facts that will make u want to treat your skin with more respect. He did not lecture yet he explained and I was very thankful for that. I would recommend anyone to go and see their new office - it's great.
Dr. Lodha was very friendly and professional. He was able to diagnose my problem immediately and with confidence and was happy to answer questions I had regarding other dermatological issues. The brand new 38th St office was gorgeous and the receptionist could not have been nicer. My appointment was very quick and to the point-- maybe a little rushed, but highly recommended for anyone with a fast-paced NYC lifestyle. Would definitely return to Dr. Lodha for future derma issues.
Dr. Lodha was very kind and attentive.

Very helpful and professional. He is one of the few doctors who actually Spends time with his patients to educate them about their personal health.
Great first visit with Dr. Lodha. He was professional and friendly, and addressed all of my concerns with both short and long-term treatment plans. I am happy to have a great new dermatologist in the area and will definitely be going back.
The staff, the doctor and the office were really great. One would hope that every doctor / patient experience would be as good! Two thumbs up!
Finally, a nearby doctors office! Great space, really nice staff. Dr. Lodha was very nice and really knows his stuff. Surprising because he looks so young....cute too. I went in for a skin check as I had a mole change color recently. Thanks Dr. Lodha!
He was friendly and smart. Very thorough and quick.
Had a great check up with Dr Lodha and he followed up with me afterward to make sure the prescription was working.
It was quick and efficient. He was very professional and friendly. Will return.
