By far, Bobby Buka is the best dermatologist that I have ever seen. He is the only doctor who sent me for labs on my thyroid because of my thin brittle hair. He was right! Thanks to him I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism at 24 years old. Since then, I moved away from NYC and I have never been able... to find a dermatologist like Bobby, who can identify underlying issues with skin and hair. Now I have to drive 2 hours from Central NJ to see him because he’s the only one who is a certified genius. Be sure to specifically ask for an appointment with Bobby Buka, and no one else. Otherwise you will end up with a partner or PA on staff. It’s hard to set up an appointment with Buka but it’s worth the wait.read more

SAVED MY EYE! I am a patient of The Dermatology Specialists and came down with a rash on my cheek and around my eye. It quickly got worse and I became concerned. Although it was late in the day, I decided to reach out to TDS for a last minute appointment. Because the rash was near the eye, Dr... Bobby Buka (the founder of TDS) texted me directly and asked me to send him a picture. I did and he replied that it was likely shingles, which is dangerous if near the eye as it can infiltrate the eyeball and cause serious damage. He immediately called in a prescription for an antiviral, which I started within hours. Not only that, he happened to be heading into manhattan and when he found out I was on the upper west side he STOPPED BY MY APARTMENT TO PERSONALLY EXAMINE MY EYE. It was above and beyond. Fortunately, he confirmed the eye was still untouched by the virus and because he got me on the antivirals so quickly, it didn't spread to the eye. To be safe, he also got me a next day appointment with an ophthalmologist for a thorough examination.I cannot imagine any other dermatology practice going above and beyond like this for a patient. It really made a difference in what could have been a dangerous situation.read more

Really great staff. Everyone was pleasant and they had water available while I waited. The wait time my first visit was close to an hour, but it looked like a busy day and I had a book. I didn't mind as much because Bobby was very personable, efficient, and listened to me. I prefer the most natural... options and he worked with me with a smile.I definitely recommend him.read more

I am so glad that here I was able to see the very knowledgable Dr Dina Began who was able to treat my parasitic skin infestation. Prior to her I visited 6 doctors in 4 months, prescribed nonsense from Petrolium jelly Vaseline, clear Dove soap, stereoid creams to all kinds of staff, everything,... just not anti -parasitic pills which were Rx only by Dr Began and finally addressed the crowling and oozing that I had for the last months. Never mind the humiliation I experienced with the other Docs (2 Derms, 1 Gyn, 1 urgent care, 1 primary care, 1 blood doc) - they suggested I have crowling because of HIV, allergy, bad blood, etc- but I have none of it! They suggested that the science has not gone so far yet to discover my issue! OK, and here I meet Dr Began who did question none of it, she just Rx what is necessary to address a parasite! Thank you Doctor!read more

I enjoyed coming to the dermatologist. The staff were attentive and the doctor was very patient checking my skin moles for cancer. I would recommend this place to anyone I know.
