Verified Patient Reviews
The doctor was very professional and knowledgeable. I will be returning in the future and would highly recommend him.
This provider was very insensitive to a young teens acne situation. Instead of providing hope he made the teen feel hopeless. This is not the manner in a professional toward a patient much less a vulnerable one. NEVER AGAIN will this person get a penny of my service and you should heed my warning.
I’ve seen him for awhile now. He’s friendly, knowledgeable, and listens to patient concerns.
Great office and staff. Dr is very personable, thorough, and too the point. Did not rush the visit. Highly recommended.
Awesome doctor and staff. Minimum Wait Time!! That's right....its true, which is rare. Caring staff, following Dr. Wilentz lead.
Well informed, and great bed side manner
What I appreciated most was that he really listened to what my treatment goals were, instead of simply assuming he knew what I wanted and running away with that idea.
Dr. Wilentz is the best!
Took the time and was very caring and explained everything thoroughly
Everyone was friendly and the doctor was extremely helpful specially while listening to my concerns. Definitely recommend !
Was very quick, thorough, and answered all of my questions. Will be going back to him annually.
Very nice doctor. Straight to the point and honest
My appointment on zoc doc never went through to the office and the Dr and staff were ready to leave. They happily took me in and were so helpful and pleasant. I would recommend this Dr and his staff to anyone.
I don't like visiting doctors. My time as everyone's time is limited and valuable. I actually enjoyed him as he was in no rush to push me thru and in fact I might have talked as much as he talked. But, it was healthy talk for my needs . Dr. Wilentz is smart, he is warm, he is cool and he directs and educates objectively. Good upscale, clean offices with Ashley as a well balanced and smart assistant. A very good experience.
Dr, Wilentz and his team are the best. A very professional and personable group. It's always a pleasure visiting them.
Doctor was great! Very informative and helpful. Will be returning. Wait was a little long but expected.
I've been to this office twice now and neither time did I enjoy my experience. I thought the first time was a fluke but this was not the case. The wait time ranged from 50 to 75 minutes between when my appointment was scheduled and when I actually first saw Seth. He was a bit arrogant, would check his cell phone when in the room and would frequently interrupt when I had questions. I overall got the sense that he had other things on his mind. I pretty much knew the medicine that worked for me and he just prescribed it, so as a means to an end this office can work. However, for quality dermatological treatment I would advise you to look elsewhere.
Dr. Seth Wilentz is the best. He truly understands what it means to be a doctor. Kelly and the rest of the staff are terrific too. I highly recommend Dr. Wilentz.
I'm so glad that I chose this office for my appointment. Everyone was incredibly friendly and cheerful. Dr. Wilentz was wonderful - answered all of my questions and had a fantastic demeanor. I've already recommended several friends!
Wow I was so impressed with his immacu late office and frienday staff! His office building is beautiful and very easy to find. My appt was 12:00 pm and I was taken in right away took care of my problem and I was out in five minutes! If I have any other dermatology issues I will definetly be back! Thank you Zocdoc
Dr. Wilentz does not disappoint! After seeing the doctor myself in the past, I decided to bring my infant daughter to see him. I prefer his more thorough bedside manner compared to my daughter's usual dermatologist. Once he took a look at my daughter's skin, he was able to alleviate my fears that her rash was something fungal and prescribed next steps for me to take. Looking forward to future visits!
Simply the best
I nominate Dr. Wilentz and Kelly as the skin-care dynamic duo of the year!
Great doctor. Knows what he's talking about!
The visit went as I expected, excellent.
Dr. Wilentz is terrific. Personable, knowledgeable, cautious and he explains everything. I highly recommend Dr. Wilentz.
Medical assistant was very nice and the doctor was down to Earth.
Dr. Wilentz and his staff are wonderful!
Very professional and informative. Also funny and a nice guy.
excellent and professional
He apologized for being late. Right to the point and quickly diagnosed issue. I have never received a call regarding the outcome of a test performed which is annoying. I guess no news is good news.
excellent and very professional staff
Great office! Dr. Willentz is easy to talk to and extremely knowledgable.
He took the time to talk and get to know me. I was pleasantly surprised to be treated this way by a dermatologist.
He made me feel very comfortable, he was knowledgable and honest.
I visit Dr. Wilentz monthly because I am on Accutane, but I would definitely recommend him to everyone! Very personable and knows his stuff. I've had no problems so far (except for one time I waited for 40 minutes after my blood had been drawn). Absolutely great!
It wasn't an important visit, so not a lot at stake. But yes, I felt comfortable with him, he talked to me and answered my questions.
Very nice manner. Knowledgeable and goes the extra mile.
Dr. Wilentz was professional. I received a call asking if I wanted an earlier appt. I was taken right away. He was very informative asking for my preference on the prescribed medication. By the time I drove to my pharmacy the prescription was waiting for me. Would certainly recommend him.
Not only was he timely but I was also offered an earlier appointment. He was professional. He saw me and my daughter and we were able to get answers. He was informative. We were in and out within an hour. Would recommend Dr. Wilentz.
Lovely doctor & workers office is really nice reminds me of Manhattan
I took my 7 year old daughter to remove a wart. She started hysterically screaming and crying and he had the patient of a saint and was awesome with her! Totally going back!!
Professional, well mannered. He called me to inform my report even though he already left me a message on my cell.
Friendly, cared about what was going on with my son, and very thoroughly explained options with pros and cons.
Staff was very friendly and welcoming, doctor was personable, treated me with respect, and was honest and thorough in his explanations with me. I'll be going back for a follow-up and will probably be returning for my future dermatological needs as well.
My son who is 8 was the patient. Dr. Wilentz was great. He was very personable and able to make my son comfortable. We came here because the last dr. We went to had no bedside manner. I would definitely return for another visit.
I have been seeing Dr. Wilentz for a few years now for my Botox treatments. He really is an expert as far as I am concerned. I have seen many other professionals in the past, but by far Dr. Wilentz is the best! If you are considering making an appointment, do yourself a favor, and MAKE THE APPOINTMENT. You will be trilled you did.
Dr. Seth Wilentz, thank you for being honest and straightforward.
I am a physician myself. Dr. Wilentz is everything I wanted in a doctor. He was thorough, knowledgeable, friendly, and has an amazing bedside manner. And his staff showed just the same professionalism. 10/10 all around.
Took my daughter to see him for eczema. Took his time explaining what causes eczema and had good bedside manners.
The doctor was very knowledgable and friendly. I would definitely reccommend
He is to the point and suggested lot of common sense things I can use for my condition. Even gave me lot of free samples to try on.
The walls in the office are extremely thin so you can hear other patient's conversations with the doctor.
Used interesting examples to describe condition and likelihood of fixing the problem long term. Did not try to oversell the capabilities of the prescriptions or unnecessary tests.
Seth was very cordial, most knowledgeable and put my mind at ease regarding an atypical mole.
Excellent Dr!!! Humorous, skilled and attentive. Extremely clean and modern office, assistant Kelly was great. I enjoyed my visit and if I ever needed the services of a dermatologist, this is the place I would go. Thank You!
He answered all my questions and concerns
Dr. Wilentz is the best.
Dr. Wilentz was professional and understanding. I explained what other derms had done and how nothing worked. Dr. Wilentz decided to surpass all of the usual routes to correct the problem. We'll see how it goes.
Great doctor. Listened and addressed all of my concerns. Spoke about all the problems I came to see him for and offered as well as executed treatment. Definitely recommend him and his staff.
He was on time, did not rush me out, after investigating came right to a diagnosis and remedy.
I think he is professional, caring and is an excellent doctor.

I went to Dr. Wilentz after reading all of the great reviews on Zocdoc. The wait time was longer than expected, but he apologized after introducing himself. When I finally did see him he was very friendly and talkative. He found a solution to my issue and fixed it in one appointment. I thought I was going in for a consultation and left his office with my problem solved! I will definitely go back to Dr. Wilentz.
Very personable and knowledgeable. Will be seeing him again.

Caring, available, professional. I'm happy ZocDoc helped me find Dr. Wilentz!
He is a nice doctor but he try to sell you his product for a high price. He explained what I needed done by kept on saying what I need will cost a lot of money being a student I felt he should of help me find a alternative since I cannot afford his products.
I was having a really hard time finding a dermatologist with an appointment less than a month out… But once I found Dr. Wllenzt he got me in right away and give me the treatment I needed for my psoriasis!
absolutely loved him! He took his time when he came and saw you and he sat and went through all the options I had when it came to my skin care. His staff was friendly and efficient. Overall great service!
Seth Wilentz and his team are the best! It had been about 6 months since my last appointment and they all remembered me. It's a very friendly and comfortable practice and Seth is an excellent doctor. He's very conservative in his treatment style and if you have sun damaged skin like mine you'll appreciate that.
Took time to go through multiple issues with me, what to do with those issues, and to work with either OTC or prescription meds to make my situation better. A pro.
Yes, I would definitely recommend Dr. Wiltenz to all my family and friends. My wife and I travel from the far end of Staten Island all the way to Jericho just to get his expertise and great care!
Best dermatologist Ive ever had! Easy to talk to, professional with a charmig dash of humour. My skin looks incredible because of him. 10/10

Once again Doctor Seth was amazing!!! No better in the industry. Thank you Dr. Seth and Thank you ZapDoc!!!
As always, doctor Wilentz gave me his full attention and explained in details what and why is happening to my skin. Both my daughter and I are his patients and we hardly recommend his practice to anybody who needs a great dermatologist.
Very good. Knowledgable. Kind b
Great doctor. Nice office. Great experience.
OUTSTANDING!! Thank you Dr. Wilentz!!!
He was a really nice guy who listen and inspected my problem and was sure to put my mind at ease While also coming up with a game plan to tackle my issue I would recommend him highly to every one
A pleasure to deal with Dr. Wilentz and his staff in every aspect (e.g. professionalism, knowledge, understanding, etc.). I have had nothing but positive experiences and recommend them very highly.
office was very clean, professional atmosphere, dr was very understanding and receptive to my needs, explained everything thouroughly.
Super nice guy! Helped me solve my issue.
I have never had to wait more than a few minutes to see Dr. Wilentz. Also, he is very personable and great bedside manner. Both my wife and I continue to use him for our dermatological issues.
This was my first time here what I think is a very professional Drs office staff and all
This doctor was great! I went there today cause of a concerning lump on my chest. He positive demeanor was extremely reassuring, and he was able to diagnose the problem within seconds. His staff were also very friendly, and unlike most doctors he was extremely apologetic for making me wait more that 15 minutes. I highly recommend this doctor and look forward to my continued treatment with him.
The office is warm and inviting and staff very attentive; Doctor Wilentz goes above and beyond to ensure a very comfortable and positive experience. I highly recommend this doctor and the practice overall!
Very pleasant and professional young doctor and very fast appointment completed
very nice and spent a lot of my time examining my skin, very thorough
Dr. Wilentz is completely professional and personable and his staff is well trained and courteous. I had a great experience visiting his office.
Great doc! Would def refer him to anyone looking for a dermatologist
Good experience. Friendly and relaxed but also very competent and thorough.
Dr. Wile to was knowledgable, easy to talk to. Spent a lot of time with us and explained procedures. Office was nice, staff was terrific. Appointment was on time.
Dr. Seth Wilentz is a superb dermatologist, easy going doctor, and likeable person. He takes his time, answering any questions you may have. He doesn't jump to conclusions and speaks directly. Other dermatologists that I have visited were rushed, not good listeners, and attempted throw prescriptions and products at you well before they have even heard you out. If you want that type of experience, then Dr. Wilentz is not for you.
The appointment was for my 8 y/o son. The overall experience was excellent. I would highly, highly recommend this doctor to my family and friends. The staff is very friendly and professional. And the doctor aside from being handsome is an excellent doctor and definitely knows his stuff. He is very knowledgeable and knows his treatment plans very well. He is really good with children as well. My son is very comfortable every time we go there and trusts the doctor.
Office is beautiful, staff is warm, Dr. Wilentz is knowledgable and can communicate effectively.
I recieved a very warm and comfortable feeling from him and his staff. They were detailed and knowledgable with the services I needed. I am pleased with his confidence in his work. I will be back for sure!
The staff is very friendly and the doctor is so easy to get along with. Had an overall excellent experience.
Fantastic staff and physician!!! Highly recommended, specifically for excellence with cosmetic procedures.
He was very thorough and professional! Absolutely going back. The nurses were very nice as well!
he went over my sons condition to quickly without going into details
I think Dr wilentz is a very good dermatologist My visit was good..I had a few things that bothered me removed. And I will continue to use him!
Dr. Wilentz's staff was extremely efficient and polite. He listened very carefully to everything I said and answered all my questions. He was extremely agreeable, and he was informative and clear about the course of treatment he proposed. My son also had an appointment today, and he was similarly impressed with both Dr. Wilentz and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Wilentz.
Excellent bedside manner; made me comfortable and welcome. He focused on the reason for my visit, and did not try "upselling" any additional procedures.
I have never been to a worse doctor in my life. I would not even call him a doctor, I would call him a salesmen. I went to visit him to discuss several different issues. The nurse was extremely rude and snappy, but clearly she picks up her behavior from Dr. Wilentz. They do not make you feel comfortable as a patient at all. When he was ready to see me, he walks in, does not introduce himself, just says okay what's the matter? His nurse walks in behind him and is just staring the whole time. The whole situation was extremely awkward and uncomfortable. I then tell him about some of my issues, he puts a pair of gloves on, looks at my scalp for less than a second, and then starts to tell me about what products he can sell to me. He has no idea about my history, doesn't bother to ask questions. All he did was sell, sell, and sell, his products. I did not feel comfortable at all. I told him I am looking for other opinions as well, and all he said was , "Oh where? In the city??". Why do you care? It wasn't until he knew I may not be coming back that he gave me some samples of his products. Do your self a favor and don't go here. Worst doctor I have ever come across!
I thought Dr Wilentz was great..easy to talk to ..very friendly, I felt very comfortable!
I could not have been more satisfied with the doctor and his staff. he was very personable friendly and knowledgeable. he made me feel very comfortable.This was my first visit and will not be my last. I highly recommend this doctor.
It was good. Surprised by how high my co-pay was. But i guess that has nothing to do with him. Still =/
Dr. Wilentz saved my life! Literally -- I was suffering for over 6 months with a rash all over my body. The itching kept me up at night and my physical and mental well-being was at an all time low. I had been to 4 yes 4 dermatologists and an allergist. The so called "expert" dermatologists that I had seen told me it was my fault the rash wasn't gone! Yes, that's what I was told. Low and behold I was recommend to Dr. Wilentz by the allergist I had previously seen. Within 3 days of Dr. Wilentz's treatment the itching and rash had gone away. Yes, I could sleep and yes, my peace of mind has been restored. He is truly the best dermatologist I've ever had the privilege to meet and be treated by.
Dr. Wilentz is very professional and friendly. He has a great manner, and put me at ease during our visit. Beautiful new offices, very nice!
The staff was very friendly and Dr Seth was approachable and knowledgable. I will be going back.
He is an excellent Provider and I have already recommended him to my circle of friends.
As good as you would want it - highly recommended
This guy is the best.
Dr. Wilentz and his office staff are wonderful! He put me at ease right away. He answered all my questions, didn't rush and explained different procedures. I am recommending him to everyone! Location is convenient also.
Everything a Dermatologist should be.
Dr Wilentz is terrific. I found him on Zocdoc and I'm really happy. Very easy going. Easy to talk to and very thorough in his diagnosis. ASked a lot of good qiuestions and addressed all of my concerns. I love this guy and highly reccomend him. Great staff and nice office too!
I wish every patient could have such a wonderful doctor. If you ever need a dermatologist, go see Dr Wilentz. You can thank me later :)
I found Dr. Wilentz on ZocDoc by chance and I'm happy I did! He spent ample time explaining every step and ensuring I understood all aspects of the issue. He was friendly and didn't make me feel rushed at all. The office is brand new, modern and clean. The MA was very professional as well. An excellent experience (as much as it can be to go to the doctor). Just watch out for the GPS directions. The office is in the same parking lot as Whole Foods, not across the street.
Very clean professional office. Tricky to find though GPS puts it on the wrong side of the road. Treatment was started immediately not on a follow up like I suspected.
Dr.Wilentz is an excellent doctor who takes the time to thoroughly explain your diagnosis/prognosis, is extremely personable and genuinely cares about his patients. I wish him all the best with the opening of this new location!
