I have been coming to Dr. Samer Jaber for well over 15 years and I can honestly say that he is one of THE BEST doctors out there! Not only is he completely thorough and knowledgeable but he is also warm, friendly and compassionate. You will never feel rushed, dismissed or spoken down to. I have stayed with him through every practice he has moved to and even though this particular location is not at all convenient for me, I will continue going to him because he is truly "THAT GOOD!" His office is clean, modern and uncluttered and his staff are also friendly and professional. You won't be sorry by choosing Washington Square Dermatology and Dr. Jaber for all of your dermatological concerns. Keep up the good work!! 🤗

Kim S.New York, NY

Dr. Michelle Park is fantastic! From the moment I met her I felt at ease immediately. I started with a consultation that was very thorough. I have experienced with other doctors in the past consultations that don’t even last more than five minutes. Dr. Park takes the time to thoroughly evaluate your skin and discuss any issues you might have. From there I had a procedure with Dr. Park that went beautifully! She has a very soft touch and a great eye! I couldn’t be happier with the results!I look forward to returning to see Dr. Park and The whole friendly staff at Washington Square Dermatology.

Kate H.New York, NY

I have always had trouble with my skin growing up. I have brown skin and acne scarring was pretty bad for me in my teenage years. I've been working with Susanna for about a year now and within that year she has completely transformed my skin. From the prescription's she has recommended to the microneedling sessions I have completed, my skin is glowing now thanks to her! I feel more confident about my skin in pictures. I feel more knowledgeable about how to take care of my skin and I feel comfortable enough to talk to her about my concerns when they arise.
I highly recommend Susanna, especially for people of color with a darker skin tone like mine.
