Dr. Shraga is very knowledgeable. He has helped to control my scalp psoriasis with various methods. I'm hoping that it will be gone soon. I would like to also personally thank Krystal (one of the medical assistants) who goes above and beyond with my excimer laser treatments. She takes her time and extra care every time she performs them.

I came in with a harmless looking rash but the Dr. Shraga took the evaluation well beyond the issue at hand and identified a concerning looking skin growth on my shoulder. He took a sample and promptly contacted me with a concerning diagnosis of early-stage melanoma. The office was incredible at quickly scheduling a follow up surgery and did a great job getting me through the process. To think back, that rash and Dr. Shraga saved my life that day. I am forever grateful.

I had been to 5 dermo's in NYC and NJ. Dr. Shraga was the only one not recommending the biologics ( which I could not take due to low white blood cell count). He found a mix of topicals which have cleared my skin! Highly recommend!
