How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Iyer is a great dermatologist! He is knowledgeable, thorough, and always makes the time to answer all of my questions. The office staff is helpful and, in my experience, I've never had to wait more than 5 minutes (an added plus is that his 119 Fifth Avenue office is spotless!).

How was your experience with the doctor?It’s hard to find a doctor you can really trust and I really TRUST Dr. Iyer, with cosmetic procedures on my face and my medical issues as well.  He is really efficient and his expertise is extra ordinary ...  I have had simple issues and more complex issues and whether the diagnosis takes a second or a year to make and work through,  I know Dr. Iyer will make the right decision and work with me.  I cross two state lines just to see him.  They don’t make doctors like they used to that you can really trust,  but Dr. Iyer is truly one of them.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my second time seeing Dr. Iyer. Like last time, there was no wait when I arrived. I made the appointment because I was considering getting some fillers, but the doc told me that it really wasn't necessary for my face. He also explained that the potential for bruising was high for the area that I was thinking about. He re-examined my forehead where he previously injected some Botox, and did a light touch up. I had previously gone to another doctor, and those injections were more painful and caused a little bleeding. But with Dr. Iyer, I could barely feel anything and didn't see any blood. He had me ice the areas after the injection – the skin was a little red at the injection points, but the color subsided pretty quickly. I was in and out in about 20-25 minutes. All in all, it was totally uneventful and easy. Happy with the results and the experience, and I'll def be going back when I need it.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Iyer was extremely nice and pointed out the problem immediately. He also took the time to explain the issue and discuss follow up steps. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a dermatologist. The only issue was the wait time in the clinic. You had to use one of their laptops to sign in on a website that they give you and fill some forms and this seemed like an overly complicated process. There was a total wait time of 45mins to an hour after reaching the office. Hope they work on improving this.

How was your experience with the doctor?He's kind, chill, relatively easy to get an appointment with, and effective. He also knows his products if you have skin care regime questions. Everything I look for in a dermatologist. The quality and accuracy of the office staff/system is touch and go, so call to confirm your appointment as their system is glitchy. Also, the tip column on the receipt must be for the cosmetics department. No one there expects you to tip for medical procedures!

How was your experience with the doctor?Great doctor, however is office staff is TERRIBLE!! I went to an appointment with Dr. Iyer, and he instructed me to come back for a follow up appointment in 2 weeks. When I checked out with the front desk staff, the secretary scheduled my appointment for 2 weeks. Without telling me, the secretary made the appointment with a different doctor within the same office because Dr. Iyer was not available at my desired time. She should have told me that, and suggested a time that worked for his schedule. Two weeks later, when I arrived for my appointment who I thought was scheduled with Dr. Iyer, another doctor came to the examination room. It was very awkward because I was excepting Dr. Iyer, and the purpose of the appointment was a follow up visit. The doctor then reprimanded the secretary, however I never received an apology. To make matters worst, I later received a bill from the office for the full amount of my appointment with the other doctor. Turns out this other doctor who I didn’t even want to see in the first place, didn’t take my insurance (Dr Iyer takes my insurance) so the office billed me for the entire cost of the visit out of pocket. I stopped by the office to sort out the issue and called, however no one has had the decency to even return my call as they said they would. I would recommend this doctor, however the office staff make me never want to see him again.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was really disappointed in my visit with Dr. Iyer. Never have I had a doctor ask me what I think my diagnosis is. It made me feel like he was not confident and was just guessing. He didn’t examine my skin thoroughly the way previous doctors do in an annual skin check. I am not satisfied with my visit and will not be returning and will go to another doctor.

How was your experience with the doctor?I did not like that ZocDoc Forms do not overlaps with their system, so you have to register on their computer and fill all forms again. And sometimes the system is glithy, so you have to spend some time and not user friendly process makes it even worse. But the doctor was great and 5* for professionalism.

How was your experience with the doctor?I've been having certain issues with my skin and hair for almost two years, and have seen various dermatologists only to be left dejected. Dr. Shilesh Iyer not only took the time to listen to my concerns, which were impacting me mentally as well as physically, but also provided solutions which seemed like they were in my best interest. Previous dermatologists I had visited were very aggressive in pushing products and procedures my way which always seemed like a sales pitch. Dr. Iyer was extremely warm and effective, took the time to listen and fully understand, which made a huge difference!
