Dr. Jamal, Was very professional and diagnosed my skin condition right away. Additionally, she listen to my skin concerns and suggested some treatments she think would help my skincare condition. After going to hundreds of Dermatologist, for my skin condition, Dr. Jamal is the only dermatologist who correctly diagnosed hyper-pigmentation and stated that there is treatment for my skin condition. She has my highest recommendation.

I was so pleased with Dr. Jamal that I decided to leave my current dermatologist! Dr. Jamal was efficient, very detailed when explaining, and she made a follow up for a full skin exam. I didn't felel rushed and she seemed genuinely concerned.

After over a year of pain, I'm healed. OK now that you got the main point of this, I'll go into detail. I have been going to another dermatogist I found on zocdoc for over 2 years now. The rash on my hand had been diagnosed as psoriasis and I was instructed to use a particular medication. It didn't work. I kept going back for other methods until the doctor said there was nothing she could do. After the "psoriasis" began eating away at my cuticle, I panicked and made 4 different emergency appointments with the thought that someone was going to do something different. Dr. Jamal was the first one I saw. She immediately said what I had was eczema, gave me targeted shots in my fingers, prescribed a lotion and a topical cream with rebates (both cost less than a tank of gas and are huge), and now 4 days later, I'm practically healed. The pain and cracked/bleeding skin went away immediately. I haven't itched since I left her office. I can't express how relieved and grateful I am to have such an intelligent doctor! I can type this entire review pain free! My hands look normal and no longer a distraction. Competence matters. Dr. Jamal is a god send. I can't thank her enough.

Apart from my wait I was glad I came to see Dr. Jamal. I was scared that I'd overprocessed my hair with relaxers and it was great to see an African-American doctor who could immediately understand your concerns. I had to wait for an hour before I could see her and even then she was only in the room for less than 10 minutes. I'd still come back for other skin concerns!

I couldn't tell you much about her. Spoke to her for less than a minute. Never had this experience before. Gave me prescriptions without even speaking to me and then wanted me to schedule these expensive procedures. Wow.

horrible. will never go back again. i started getting dark spots on my face and neck. she had no clue how they got there and couldn't really tell me much (nor did she ask any questions about if my diet changed or anything). she then told me to use a special cream they would make for me (absurd amount for a small jar!) and nothing has worked yet. i was really hoping for better but was very disappointed. and her assistants are young and act like they are in high school. i had to constantly go back and ask about what is going on because they made me wait almost an hour for the cream, when they initially said it was 5 minutes. and they were constantly giggling amongst themselves. wish i would have saved my co pay and the a ridiculous amount for the cream. a COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. AVOID!

It was quicker than expected, I am very please with my visit although it feels as if you spend more time with the assistants than you do with Dr. Jamal. Products are way too expensive.. $30 for a bottle the size of my index finger.

She actually referred me to a few beauty supply stores that are affordable to purchase the products to help with my extremely dry scalp. And she called in a prescription to the pharmacy.

Dr.Jamal is a kind and patient physician. She was quite sweet, did a thorough examination of my skin and didn't make me feel uncomfortable while doing so. She understood everything I had done with my previous dermatologist and she knew that was seeking one thing but assured me that realistically I did not need anything that I had done with my previous doctor. I left the office very satisfied with my diagnosis or lack there of and assured that there would be nothing done that was not discussed. Will be returning, the environment is awesome and clean!

I did not have a problem with the actual office visit itself. Nothing was particularly pleasant, but I got done what I wanted to have done. I am extremely unhappy with their billing practices. First I called specifically to ask how much something would cost with and without insurance. When I received my bill I was billed 5 times more than I thought, the charge was processed twice, and they sent everything to the lab, even though I had asked them not to. Of course I ended up getting a charge from the lab too. I would beware when booking with them that their billing practices are shady and it will take months to get it rectified. Book somewhere else.
