    How was your appointment with Dr. Buka?

    Nov 17, 2019
    I have been seeing the (now) Dermatology Specialists since 2012. The care and customer service I have received from time to time, office to office has been consistently phenomenal. I have had a number of mild to moderate skin conditions which have popped up since I graduated in 2010; most of which have required medical intervention, and man did I find the right place to call home. My skin has managed to thrive each time and I know I owe so much of that to the knowledge of Dr. Buka and his very skilled team. I would be happy to recommend this center (pick your location within 3 of the 5 boroughs), to anyone looking for quality care. Not to mention, the office cleanliness pretty much set the standard for doctors offices, regardless of specialty that I chose from that point on. A+++++
