For this appointment I saw Dr. Nicole Lyons for concerns with my fingernails. She had such a warm and positive energy during my visit. She pointed out my concerns and explained how to combat in very reassuring terms. I felt comfortableto be myself and speak candidly, she was amazing! Even on my way out I saw Dr. Shah, who was just as kind and welcoming as I remember! She was the first dermatologist I’d seen as an adult in 2015 and haven’t had a chance to come back to see one regularly until now, with my insurance plan. For 2019, She was one of the first appointments I was excited to make again and very thrilled to make seeing a dermatology regularly as part of my medical team. I’m so glad I came back, the ladies in the front reception are the BEST! I had to reschedule this appointment a few times in the same day the girl I spoke to each time, was so accommodating and very kind in understanding (so sorry I forgot to get your name! Next time I promise!) The office is clean and modern, but welcoming in a way that makes you feel relaxed, like you want to hang out and just solve all your problems, right then and there. I’m not the best at writing reviews but I had to share for Dr. Shah’s team. It’s been nearly 4 years since my first visit and it was just as amazing of an experience today as it was then! ICan’t wait to come back, thank you, all! If you’re new to seeing a dermatologist, looking for a new one or in general, I Highly recommend the team here!! :)

Not impressed- I came to her with skin discoloration to which she said is common in people of color. She then asked me what I would like to do about it- I could’ve easily googled at home remedies and bought overthe counter medicines and saved myself the copay. I was leading the appointment which is disappointing considering I paid for a medical opinion. Unhelpful

Dr. Shah delivered a great balance between efficient care and positive bedside manner. The appointment was quick, but I never felt like she was trying to herd me out the door. She genuinely listened and answered all my questions. Her officealso took care of calling in my prescriptions without needing to be followed up with. Highly recommended!

Dr Sejal Shah seems to be competent and to the point. I felt she handled my skin issue quite well. Regarding her bedside manner, I wouldn't define her 'empathic' but this was not an issue for me. The visit was alittle rushed. The reason for the low score is the staff working at her practice.It was a really bad experience all around: impolite, not professional or helpful, the prescriptions were not called in a timely manner, very hard to speak to someone over the phone... front desk was not able to indicate where the restroom was located (?!). I always think twice before leaving a bad review, however the behaviour of the staff made an already stressful situation more difficult to deal with and I think it is important for them to be aware. thank you.

Dr. Shah did a quick exam of me, but she was very friendly and knowledgeable. I felt like if I had questions she didn't try to rush me out, even though they were clearly running behind schedule. The only thing Ididn't like was that you have to leave your credit card information for the front desk, but that seems to be the norm with a lot of doctors I've come across in NYC. Overall, I'd recommend the office because of Dr. Shah.

The doctor was friendly and professional. Visit was very quick. She recommended removing a mole and offered to do it on the spot, which was convenient. The office feels very geared toward cosmetic procedures (lots of free samples and brochuresall over the place), which was a little off-putting since that was not what I was there for, but I suppose that is the nature of the field these days. The doctor did not bring up any of these things to me, which I appreciated, just stuck to the annual skin check which was my reason for coming in.

Very rushed. I felt that I was interrupting a prior consultation that she was in -- she explained away my concerns standing up!!! Although I had no serious skin conditions, I was still expecting a more thorough examination (which I thoughtwas normal in screening) of my facial area. I guess I was wrong.

At 34, the last time i saw a dermatologist was when i was 16. Though i never thought i had "bad" skin, i had come to terms with the notion that my not so great skin was something that i wouldjust have to live with. My visit today confirmed that 1) my skin issues (and their were a few) were treatable, i justi needed a rx) 2) I should have came to her earlier after years of trying different creams/facialists. Her bedside manner was amazing, she was personable and took her time(a rarity in NYC!). She looked at my skin, and immediately knew what was going on. Looking forward to using her over the next few years for upkeep on my skin. **Her office personal was very welcoming. Front office was great. Something came up with my insurance and coverage and i got a call from the office letting me know what the next step was. Everything was seamless.

She saw me quite quickly, took a cursory glance at my skin, prescribed these 2 expensive acne medications and sent me on my way. No indication of when/if I should come back for a follow up. No real explanation of whatI was taking or what future treatments should occur. Looking elsewhere.

Dr. Shah was great and so was her medical assistant - knowledgeable and very friendly. The front desk person, however, was rude and the waiting room was essentially one big advertisement for various cosmetic products/interventions. I didnot get a good first impression because of the front desk person and the decor in the waiting room - I know, decor is not that big a deal but it was pretty intense.

Finally found a dermatologist that gets me (neither pushes products excessively, nor leaves me hungering for more). She patiently listened to all my concerns and addressed each of them in devising an actionable game plan for my skincare goingforward. My top concern was adult acne (I have never struggled with acne before, but since turning 30, I've had really bad cystic acne). It has only been 4 days since my appointment and already my skin has significantly improved!
