Dr. Sphoorthi Jinna is very nice and sweet. She took her time to check all of my beauty marks and to explain any questions I had. I was having a yearly check up. My appointment was at 10:30 AM, I wascalled in at 11 AM. Pretty smooth service at the front using Zoc Doc to prefill forms. The G stop is 2 blocks away so it’s a short walk to the office. And the office is clean, it is in the former LIC writers guild. Overall, I had a smooth and efficient experience and I’m healthy which is a plus! :) thank you!

The receptionist were laidback, professional, and courteous, while the doctor and nurses were composed, experienced, and friendly, still most impressive is the hip Brooklyn-ish ambiance. Highly recommend this dermatologist. **Also I had this same issue last year (cyst/abscess) and went to a CityMD for a less than satisfactory experience.

I felt it was too short. I saw her for less than five minutes. Didn’t ask me about any skin routine, didn’t ask me about my skin type or experience, and she didn’t do any kind of exam or honestly askany questions. She was friendly for sure. She was helpful in a way but felt rushed.

Repeatedly had bad experiences here. Last visit I arrived for my 6:40pm appointment ten minutes early at 6:30 (after having confirmed the appointment earlier in the week) to find the office closed, lights off and doors locked (a solid half hourbefore their closing time.) My previous appointments felt rushed (the last couple were well under five minutes) and they've been borderline dismissive of my symptoms despite increased pleas of discomfort.

Dr. Jinna was GREAT. Very kind, down to earth and listened to my concerns. I felt comfortable enough with her to discuss my horrible looking toes (I had the medical assistant leave just so I could do this) & not onlydid she assure me that my toes weren't horrible, SHE TOOK HER SHOES OFF TO SHOW ME THAT WE HAD THE SAME ISSUE. She's an A+ in my book ??????
