I was concerned about hyperpigmentation on my face, post acne scars and dark spots on my back. I was seen by Dr. Kendra. She was very fast in seeing me and knew exactly what I needed to solve my concerns. Iwas given different options to my concerns which makes me feel more like I am a part of the decision making as much as my doctor is. I have a follow up appointment in a month. I look forward to seeing my results with the medication I was given. Thank you!

The team is quite knowledgeable. Zocdoc and their appointment system doesn’t sync well so I would leave some follow up time or book directly with the office rather than Zocdoc. I would also recommend this if you want to make surethat your appointment gets confirmed with Dr. Jamal rather someone else in the office.

Friendly and seemingly competent medical professionals (though the doctor herself was somewhat brusque) and very friendly and pleasant front-office staff. But this practice has an "exclusive relationship" with a delivery-only pharmacysomeplace in Queens and will refuse to send prescriptions to your preferred local pharmacy instead. Do not expect to be able to get your medications for at least several days after your visit. (The forms you fill out as a new patient say you can decline to use their pharmacy and can specify a local pharmacy instead, but it's not true---at the end of your exam, they'll insist that you can only use their preferred pharmacy.)

The appointment felt rushed like she wanted me out of there. I didn’t receive a full breakdown of the medication she just said here take this medication for this or that. The medical assistant was the worst while explaining the medicationshe gave off the impression of not wanting to do it.

The shortest consultation I have ever participated in with a doctor. Dr. Jamal spent all of 5 minutes in the room. Rambled off prescriptions to her PA and then the PA spent time answering my questions. The appointment felt rushed. I likely will not return, despite needing follow-up treatment.

Dr. Jamal is very professional and very knowledgeable. She's also very accommodating and will find a way to fit you into her schedule if you really need to see her quickly. She has a busy practice, so its best to knowwhat your questions are when you get in to see her, that being said, I highly recommend her if you want a professional dermatologist. Based on my interaction with her, she has a ton of experience with medical dermatology. I haven't used her for cosmetic dermatology.

I’ll start with the positive— the front desk attendant and medical assistant we’re both lovely and very helpful. Additionally, I was provided with a handful of samples which will save me some money. I’ve been to other doctors in the Schweigergroup and they’ve all been AWESOME. One of the dermatologists went out of her way to bring me products that she had at home for me to try. Everyone else has always been very thorough in their approach and when answering questions. Unfortunately, Dr. Jamal did not follow suit. Overall, her consultation felt rushed and she came across as disinterested and somewhat condensing when I asked questions. I came in with a handful of non-serious chronic skin issues. Over the years, I’ve gotten 5 or more different prescriptions for each of these issues and have felt like a guinea pig trying out different medications. When I showed her some of the medications I’d tried, she unsympathetically prescribed something else. For two of the conditions she barely even looked at my skin. When I asked about laser treatments she did not explain them at all, she said she recommended 3-5 treatments of a particular type. I asked if it hurt and her response was, “well, I numb the skin” (as if that was supposed to be obvious?). When I checked-out I was provided with a brochure that didn’t even include the laser she recommended, and the prices for each laser treatment was thousands of dollars each. Lastly, I was asked to change into a gown so I could have a yearly skin exam. She started walking out of the appointment and I asked about the skin exam and she said, “let’s do it when you come back, this appointment has already taken long.” Without exaggeration, she had been in the room for no more than 5 minutes and never even sat down. She stood peering over me and rushed through my questions/concerns. I had high hopes because she’s an incredibly educated woman, and Schweiger typically has excellent doctors (I’ve met 3 over the years). Unfortunately, she did provide the type of service I was hoping for.

It was as expected. Performed her duties and left. The Spanish young lady at the front desk almost caused me to take my business elsewhere. She would be served best to work in the back. You would think after 35 minutesof waiting I would get a some indication of when the Dr would see me.

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.

Dr. Jamal is friendly and explains the treatments and options. I've gone to her sporadically over several years. Usually reasonably prompt (15-30 minute wait), though I did have one absurdly long wait time....it was more than 1 hour betweenthe time I was put in the examining room and when she came in. From the assistant's reaction, I think someone forgot I was there, so I can't say whether this was actually Dr. Jamal's fault.

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 onmy 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.

Dr Jamal is very thorough, which I appreciate. She has accurately diagnosed my issues, and has followed up to see how I am recovering from procedures. I feel her bedside manner is excellent.

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 towait 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!
