I’ve been coming here for about 2 years or so. I have seen Dr. Gordon in Paramus and recently Dr. Gabriella in Riverdale for my biopsy. She was absolutely fantastic as was Genie, her assistant during my procedure. I absolutely loved her. I was extremely nervous as always when it comes to doctors / procedures but they were extremely prepared, patient, kind and quick with everything they did. I’m not a good patient by any means, I get very anxious and they helped me through every step of the way. The entire office staff/ front desk is fantastic. 10/10

Very pleased! I was in and out in 20 minutes and my problem was efficiently handled. I had stopped going to this derm group a few years ago when the wait time was 1 1/2 hours on more than one occasion and staff felt disconnected. I am guessing that some reorganization has occurred and this practice seemed more on point.

This practice is one of the best that I have ever experienced. Go twice a year for a skin checkup. I always take the 6 AM appointments. Twice, I've had to go for a concern and the appointments were late morning. The place both times was packed! I don't know how they do it - moving patients along and giving the most amount of time and care. I expected to wait an hour. But, I was in a room and saw Dr. Abbate within 20 minutes. He is a wonderful doctor and a wonderful person. The staff is professional and always so courteous. Again, I don't know how they do it. Great practice on ALL accounts. My whole family would never consider another practice. You want the best? This is the place.

The doctors are all terrific and knowledgeable at the Derm Group. But the staff who welcomes patients and checks them out are numerous but still the patient comes last. Some training is needed to make this a good practice! Perhaps the salaries are low so staff just "doesn't care"? We don't know, but of all doctors' offices we go to, The Derm Group is sadly at the bottom. I'm sorry to share this, but patients should know. August 2021 update: it’s wonderful when a practice hears complaints and does a 180 degree turnaround. Without remembering my review from a while ago, when we went for an appointment yesterday I noticed how quick and efficient and friendly the woman at the front desk (name begins with J?) was. And so was the assistant who escorted us to the room and the nurse who took our statistics. The entire visit (including Dr. Abbate of course) was outstanding!

Dr. Abbatte is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! Over the years I have been to sooooo many dermatologist who didn't have great bedside manner, who blamed me for my skin problems, and who failed to help me... Some even making my skin worse. Dr. Abbatte took one look at my acne and knew exactly what I needed. He cleared my skin quickly, without side effects, and not just for the short term. Any time I need an adjustment or have a problem, he REALLY listens and works to fix it. And he is always caring and kind. He always makes sure I have my medicine when I need it, unlike other doctors both in the practice and outside of it. I would drive for hours to see Dr. Abbatte if I had to, and I wouldn't see anyone else. His nurses are also always the sweetest! I'm so glad to have found Dr. Abbatte!

I had my first visit at the Derm Group this week. My wait was brief and staff was friendly. The PA, Nicole Colucci, answered my questions and made me feel comfortable. I didn’t feel rushed but received prompt service to address minor skin issues. I will return for additional services in the fall.

I used to go to The Derm Group Verona office before moving. Once I moved I didn’t realize there was a Riverdale office and went to a different group until just last week. I was very unhappy with the previous group. Due to my age I felt like my complete skin exams took 1-2 minutes and were not thorough at all despite close family history of melanoma. My first visit at the Riverdale office was excellent. I saw Gabbie and she was friendly, listened to my concerns and treated me thoroughly. She even pointed out a mole for biopsy that I’ve been trying to have the previous office address for two years. I plan on bringing my daughter and encouraging my husband to use this dermatology group as well.

I would have liked to have had an issue addressed same day, but was scheduled for a follow up visit. (My reasoning for 4 rather than 5 stars)

My clinician Gabby, is top notch. However, following a surgical procedure early June, I was unable to get a return call with a concerning healing issue. It took me 5 attempts starting on a Friday morning continuing into Monday to get someone to respond to my concern. I was on my own all weekend. No one called me back on Friday. I was disconnected several times trying to reach a clinician on Monday. After persistence and becoming demanding, I finally talked to a nurse on Monday for guidance on a wound issue.

This was my first time at any dermatologist. I had a concerning spot on my back that I needed checked out. The NP and her medical assistant were so pleasant and had great bed side manner. I ended up having the spot removed, they stitched me up, and sent it out for biopsy. They made this scary process easy and calm for me. Would 100% recommend them for any dermatology treatment/ concerns.

They walked me through the procedure, asked if I had questions, answered all of my questions and made sure I knew what was going on through each step of the procedure. Two follow up calls the day of the procedure to make sure I was good and another the day afterwards. Super quick response a week later when I had a question got a call back within 30 mins.
