How was your experience with the doctor?Amazing experience end to end. Was seen on time, didn't have to fill out any forms in the office because they sent them digitally ahead of time, and they already had my insurance info on file. Dr. Palep was SO nice, informative, helpful, etc. Everything you want in a doctor. I wish every healthcare experience could be this easy and pleasant!

How was your experience with the doctor?If you are looking for a dermatologist, Dr. Palep is amazing. Spring Street Dermatology, in general, is great even if you can't get an appointment with Dr. Palep. They are always able to squeeze you in for an appointment.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Palep was amazing! Very knowledgable and versed in everything I asked questions about. I consider myself pretty in the know when it comes to skin care and she was able to point out some key things I had missed and provided great solutions for them. Wait time was less than 5 minutes, her assistant tech was very helpful, and they sent me home with clear instructions and informational pamphlets. The office was clean but welcoming and the front desk staff was friendly. I felt like I was in very capable hands and will definitely return.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Palep is professional and makes her patients feel comfortable. She is happy to answer any questions you may have. The only thing I would say is that she was in and out pretty quickly (luckily because I had no issues), but it didn't give me enough time to ask some questions that weren't particular to something she looked at.

How was your experience with the doctor?Sapna Palep, MD was INCREDIBLE. I have been going to dermatologists for months trying to get accurate treatment and diagnosis of my symptoms which started in July of 2018 and she immediately diagnosed me and provided me with treatment. It has been less than 24 hours and I already feel relief. Front desk was quick and helpful, her assistant was kind and effective. I highly recommend this office and absolutely go back.

How was your experience with the doctor?Seeing Dr Palep was a pleasure. She was able to diagnose me right away. Gave me samples to take with me and recommended very affordable home options. Works via Klara with the pharmacy and it's amazing. This is probably not as important but her skin is amazing and I think that is important when seeing a dermatologist! I look forward to a long relationship with Dr Palep...

How was your experience with the doctor?I visited Dr.Palep for an acne consultation. I had persistent acne for 2-3 years and nothing seemed to suppress my breakouts. Additionally, I had a few marks from prior breakouts. Dr. Palep healed my skin in less than 2 months through topical medication and an extraction. It’s a year later and I haven’t had to deal with any annoying breakouts and am so thankful to Dr.Palep. Would highly recommend this to anyone who’s tired of experimenting with their own solutions and ready to seek effective and professional help.
