It was a great experience. Will see Dr. Jay next year for a check-up. However, the office didn’t receive the online forms I completed with Zocdoc. The office received a copy of my insurance card but no medical forms.

I just had my 3rd appointment with Dr. Jay and I have to say she's pretty great! I appreciate that she takes the time to listen and write down anything important that I mention. She gets really close to you (literally)so you may get uncomfortable with how she invades your personal space. Overall I find her to be thorough and incredibly helpful. Let's not forget that wait time in the office was only about 10 minutes!

I always get a feeling for the doctors office by the front desk staff. Dr. Jay's staff was very friendly and professional. Put me at ease the minute I walked in the door. They had all my paper worked printed andready to go and took me into the exam room right away. Dr. Jay was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist!

Dr. Jay was very personable and answered all my questions. She prescribed a Rx and said she would call into my pharmacy or I could buy it from the office. She did not try to "push" me to buy from thembut I did for convenience sake. I will go back in 3-4 weeks. Let's see what my results are!

Dr Jay cared about me as a patient. She did not appear to rush in order to increase her number of billable patients. She did move quickly to cover all of the issues that I brought to her, but she coveredthem all thoroughly and efficiently. Her treatment plan(s) are better than my prior dermatologist. She is my new dermatologist and I referred my wife.

The doctor, staff and office are very pleasant. I however think offices can do better in terms of time management, a patient should see the doctor much sooner than 50 minutes from the appointment time.
